I'm not squawk, but...
The most prominent is the NDAA, which gives homeland security the authority to pick up any one of us, detain us indefinitely, and even strip our citizenship from us, with the possibility of absolutely no evidence of wrongdoing. And when certain aspects have been challenged (the indefinite detention, stripping of citizenship) the present administration has been fighting to keep those aspects.
Brought to you by our present administration, written by the bastard McCain along with others, and championed, endorsed, and defended by the current POTUS. Present day Amerika.
Patriot Act. So much going on there, just look it up yourself, my thumb will get tired of typing all that.
Bush. Can't remember the year, but it was post 9/11 feel-good legislation.
The list goes on. The funny thing is the people (ahem, not naming names) who actually think that one party has our interests at heart more so than the others... They're the truly delusional ones, thinking there's actually a difference between them all. Hell, they're just like pro wrestlers I think, putting on staged dramas for the public.
