It kills me to admit this, but it comes from the bottom of my heart and soul! For some unknown reason, instead of feeling safe and secure when I see a policeman, I feel fear that comes close to terror!
Has our country become a police state? Is our country on its way toward absolute rule?
tigron_x has given me permission to post this most thought provoking reply he left in my 4th of July entry.
You're thoughts P-L-E-A-S-E!
How do you figure that?
Every gun you own is registered, thus tracked.
Soon we'll have RFID tags in our government id cards, so we'll be tracked.
Everyone is in debt to the Federal Reserve -- a privately owned company.
We're taxed everywhere we look.
You don't own your own labour.
You don't own any land.
The government has full access to your bank account.
Your home can be entered and searched without a warrant.
You can be wire tapped without a warrant.
Your pc can be hacked without a warrant.
The economy is completely manipulated by the central banking system.
We have a de facto court system.
We have a de facto government.
So really, we're free to work where ever we want and buy whatever product that is available as long as we follow their rules and their system of government -- in other words, as long as we don't step out of line.
Basically, if we want to act on our rights, for example the right to contract, we have to ask permission to do so by applying for a license. For example, if we want to find a buyer for another's property, then we have to get a broker's license. If we want to help someone find accomodations, we have to get a travel agent's license. If we want to open up a bar, we have to have a license to distribute alcohol. And the list goes on.
Are we so incompetent that we need the government to administrate and regulate every facet of our lives? Are we beings without reason and logic? Are we seriously incapable of governing our own affairs?
Hell, when you get pulled over for speeding, they force you to testify against yourself by forcing you to contract with the police (tax) officer, otherwise if you don't sign their contract, then you go to jail. And if you try to question the officer's authority, the officer can and will threaten you to submit to his/her authority.
And if you go to court regarding the ticket, you don't get to plee innocent because you're the one in conflict since you're there to 'dispute' the charges.
You get to plee "not guilty", which is an act of denial. So you have to prove they're wrong for giving you a ticket, not they have to prove you were speeding. In other words, in essence they're innocent and you have to prove they're guilty. And if you're not a lawyer, you're considered incompetent in the legal system -- which is somewhat true because their talking in a language that sounds like english, but the words have different meanings than what the average person is taught in schools.
So, how does that constitute as freedom? And do we have more freedom than other countries because we have more products available to us, or similar products but at a lower price? And how much longer do you think that's going to last when the more we use Federal Debt Notes (USD) the more we go into debt? So what freedoms are you refering to because I see none within our government?"
