America is officially a police state
I'm surprised I don't see a topic about this. If perchance I missed it the mods are free to do as they will; this is too important to risk not having it on the front page.
Long story short, Obama signed a bill into law which enables the US military to act on our soil and detain citizens indefinitely without charge or trial. That means that you-any one of us-can be grabbed off the street and disappear without due process and without the opportunity to be released. This is not a conspiracy theory, this is actually happening and if it's going to change before mass travesties occur this is our only chance to make it happen.
Our politicians are guilty of treason. No longer are they merely corrupt, they're traitors to the country and they should be made to answer for their crimes. More importantly, we need to show we're not going to take this lying down. I still believe in the ideals this country was founded on and no amount of perceived safety is worth living in fear of my own government.

In "1984" this was known as "unpersoned".
But of course, this couldn't POSSIBLY ever happen in the United States. Interactive television screens, mind control and the likes...that's just the stuff of fiction, like "1984".
The laws encated since 9/11 brought us the "Patriot Act". The sequels since are designed to protect us from tyranny.

Will Potter, who has written extensively about the rebranding of (what ought to be) constitutionally protected activism as eco-terrorism to protect industrial interests at the expense of personal freedoms and due process, talks about it here: Senate Approves Imprisonment of U.S. Citizens, Without Charge, As Terrorists

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR, The Northern Virginia Daily
January 27, 2008
Americans were handed the best possible opportunity to delve into the darkest sectors of their government, and hold to light those accountable for every aspect of wrongdoing. This opportunity spanned six years. A concerted opposition deflected every truth or valid question this opportunity presented, and fear played as the motivation for most to remain silent.
It was the 9/11 Truth movement, and had it been pursued, even if nothing were found out of place, it would have been an exercise in holding government accountable. It would remain as a reminder that the people of this country are the government. Few had the courage to face this matter, and excuses were manufactured to smother any possibility that our own government would do such a thing.
When a person flatly proclaims that his government…or any government…is above corruption, at once he’s given license to that government to pursue corruption, and simultaneously forfeits any right to question that government. The corruption will progress to the point of making any investigation illegal, dissidents “unpatriotic”, and in a short span, the corruption leads invariably to self-destruction. It is identical to alcoholism, ending in absolute slavery. How sobering.
It took 14 months of pushing to get a 9/11 investigation, and at every turn, attempts were made to put foxes in the chicken coop, not the least being Henry Kissenger. The investigation itself was no more than a farce, never addressing the real questions or utilizing indisputable facts. Once again, America was lulled into complacency. And for the last time, America forfeited its chance to really hold to account a real democracy. The degradation of civil rights is at a point of no return. Presidential power has become absolute, and no one in politics will change this, now.
When Nazi Germany collapsed, the U.S. government took possession of all records, experiment results, and every aspect of building an invincible Empire. The same government that spies on you, uses your tax dollars developing sophisticated surveillance, and sends your children to wars for controlling oil has at its disposal every aspect of perfected corruption.
Your complacency permitted this.
