Who Owns This Country

I read patriot act and act 2 a few days ago.  I think everyone should read it.  To me it is evil.  I want so much to see the government go back to the constitution like they swore and oath of office that they would uphold it.  There is nothing American or patriotic about these acts.  These acts will end what was left of our Liberty.  I wonder how many people care about that.

Hi freedom lovers, <br />
<br />
Government power to strike fear into the individual was used to bring about the Fascist governments of Italy and Germany around WWII. Those functioning democratic societies used the law to create new laws, allowing presidential and governmental coercion and fear tactics that control the individual. <br />
<br />
Since the Patriot Act, the President has taken power away from all other branches of the government and is able to declare you a threat (just because) then search, detain, incarcerate, fine and torture, without substantive evidence, and in spite of evidence to the contrary.<br />
<br />
He has authority to be the sole determining factor.<br />
<br />
Those who did vote in Italy and Germany, for the most part, saw their controlling laws as protective of the individual. Others saw the power and money train coming their way and voted to sustain themselves.<br />
<br />
The U.S. is no different. <br />
<br />
I am concerned enough to believe that there needs to be a reliable Blog for discussion and fact gathering. And it is time to begin book clubs that study the phenomenon of the slippery slide toward Fascism, here in the U.S. A. <br />
<br />
We all face discrimination, ostracism, or being fired, for stating honest facts that go against the politically correct issues of the times. <br />
<br />
Once you have made it into the spot light because of standing your ground, the media can have a field day and this can cause fears about the quality of life ahead. <br />
<br />
Thank you for beginning a section on EP to discuss the matter. <br />

Read the new book, The end of America. The answer is there. <br />

Everyone needs to read and understand what they are doing before it is too late. They distract people with televisions and technology. They convince us that they are doing what is best for us so we do not question it when they take away all our rights...anyone else recall Hitler? Same thing. Too many people think it couldn't happen here, but it already is in the works. We have to do something about this while we can!

Politically speaking I think the RATS are guarding the CHEESE.. I thought for years that I would just drop out of because most people seemed to not care or would say well what can we do about it. The trouble is far worse than I realized. This is a observation but it occured to me last night how much this lines up with the end time Bible prophices. What has happened with me is I have started seeking out the truth about what is really happening and have become freaked out. I really feel a need to calm down and think. I will give everyone the hot tip and tell them that you need to seek out the truth. There is truth but your not gonna find much of it if your believeing the mass media.. I started on a quest to find out whats really up about 10 days ago. I am no longer so much concerned about myself as I as about the fate of our world. I hope I can find some way to very useful in getting to word out.
