Here is a warning from Naomi Wolf, author of the “Shock Doctrine”, concerning the Bush Administration’s latest moves to possibly take away the freedoms that all Americans should enjoy. It is a scary scenario and is already being played out on small, but important levels.
Read the missive here.
And of course here’s a small snippet of said missive to get you to read the piece Gentle Readers-
“I warned that within six months we would see the definition of “terrorist” expanded so that the “terrorists” in the news would soon look like heartland, mainstream Americans. We now hear that mere protesters at the RNC in Minnesota have been charged as terrorists.”
This is not the vision of America I was raised to believe in. It is NOT what the Founders desired. This is a gun pointed at every one of our heads whether we agree or not with the Ruling Elite. We can become prisoners in a 50 State prison. The Constitution will become meaningless and our precious freedoms and rights will be stripped from us.
Instead of being a Free people, we will become serfs.
As Patrick Henry put it, “Give me Liberty, or give me death”. I agree with his statement with every fiber of my Being with him.
Benjamin Franklin said when asked wheteher the Founders had created a Republic or a Monarchy, he responded, “A Republic, if you can keep it”.
We must keep our Republic alive.
