Washington, DC—At the end of the Civil War Congress passed the Posse Comitatus Act that prohibited our military forces from law enforcement activities on our own soil. There was enough horror inflicted by soldiers burning down homes all over the American South. Wanton acts of cruelty by military forces on American civilians were beyond shocking.
Our Congress has steadfastly refused to turn this kind of absolute power to the government until Barack Obama wanted it. That along with the power to imprison Americans without lawyers, trials or Due Process has placed us all in the crosshairs of an absolute tyrant. These are just some of the very powers that Josef Stalin and Adolph Hitler had to massacre millions of their own citizens.
Additionally the despots of World War Two never had the kind of comprehensive data collected and stored on computer of every man, woman and child like our government collects today.
A tyrant today in our Whitehouse could murder us far more efficiently than ever before in the history of the world. We are handing over additional raw power to our government to destroy and plunder us every second. I guess we refused to learn that absolute power corrupts absolutely.
The political Left bitterly and rightly decried the Patriot Act but under Obama it has been expanded significantly. Now the Left is silent about that and some many other attacks on American’s liberty, privacy and peace.
The government has been sending unmanned drone aircraft to spy on Americans and these flying machines can also destroy our homes and businesses. Needless to say anyone caught inside will be incinerated.
Soldiers take an oath to defend the Constitution and most may have some sense of right and wrong to prevent them from committing atrocities against fellow Americans.
The problem with the drones is that they can be operated by or mercenaries or even criminals. Unlike conventional military aircraft pilots we will never know who is behind the curtain at the controls of killer drones. They will only place people behind the controls of the drones that will blindly take orders from superiors.
Frankly I can understand why Americans want to shoot the drones down on sight if they appear over our property uninvited.
At what point to we say enough? At what point do Americans began to retaliate against politicians and their bureaucrats with gasoline, bombs and firearms? Frankly, four more years of Barack Obama’s ambitious destruction of liberty, free enterprise and privacy will invite a second and far more deadly Civil War.
