I had initially created this section of my site in opposition to the shameful and volatile actions of Al Gore and Hillary Clinton when they asserted that the Constitution should be retro-actively changed in order to facilitate Gore's insertion into the presidency. After all, to socialists - rules are meant to be broken.
Things have gone rapidly down-hill since the horrific events of September 11th, 2001. The horror is that the 'terrorists' could have the audacity to kill thousands of people, and jubilantly cheer at their demise. This has not been questioned.
However, the real tragedy in the WTC and Pentagon attacks is that the US Federal Government and individual States have immediately and collectively undermined the will of our great nation, in the name of 'security'.
States have started issuing mandates requiring vaccinations against any 'contagious diseases'. Since all diseases that can be vaccinated against are contagious by definition - why bother vaccinating against something that isn't contagious? The wholesale effect of this is that it would immediately force foreign substances into the veins of every American and/or effectively create state-run concentration camps for the purpose of isolating them in the name of 'quarantining' the uninfected from the general populace, under the assertion that *they* are the source of risk. These immunizations & quarantines will be government controlled, and unpetitionable; those people that are not infected and refuse immunizations will be taken from their homes and placed in government-controlled concentration camps without due process and would not even be allowed to petition their government for redress of grievances.
The above situation disappoints me greatly. But it is dwarfed by what the federal government has done. Would you approve a 'pay rate change' from your employer without seeing what the change would include? You expect it to be an increase, of course - any employer that had the audacity to do otherwise is insane, right? So you have every reason to trust them, don't you? I didn't think so. Would you still be reluctant if your employer said that it was a very reasonable change, and that it was for your own safety that you did not see the actual new value until after you signed a contract setting this sealed 'rate' in motion? Of course you'd be reluctant. Would you trust your federal representatives to vote for legislation that they were not allowed to read? After all - any legislation that the author says is 'good for you' must be, right?
If you're not outraged at the very thought of this, perhaps you'll be more outraged after hearing what the actual bill contained... including provisions to enable 'representatives' of any unnamed level of government to break into your home, property or business without a warrant - nor even reasonable assertion of what they hope to find, and without telling you - before or after. And they can tap your telephone, email, internet connection, any other digital or analog device on suspicion of 'terrorist' related activities, while maintaining the broadest possible definition of terrorism, even broader than the dictionary.
With the sweep of his pen, Bush has completely obliterated the 4th Amendment and Due Process. The entire intent of the Founders has been rendered asunder before Bush has fulfilled his first year in office. I'm ashamed that I supported him.
It's time to make amends. There is no easy means of undoing what I've done, but there are steps I can take; as can you. It won't be long before the government exploits these new 'powers' to their ultimate end - a complete and total compromise of your every Right.
I haven't really been in a mood lately to provide much more than partial aid to anyone in distress. For that I apologize. It is my hope that the future will once again be as optimistic as it usually is... I just don't see it anytime soon.
