If being being virtually strip searched before boarding your flight, or if being killed over constitutionally protected speech, or if cops murdering an innocent man, or if having every phone call, text message, or email you send stored, read and/or listened to by the NSA wasn't bad enough for you, now it's been reported that the Obama administration pushed the Department of “Justice” to put pressure on the Supreme Court to allow prison officials to “strip-search anyone arrested even for the most minor offenses before admitting them to the general population of a jail or prison, even in the absence of a shred of suspicion that they are carrying weapons or contraband.”
I've been saying for a long time now that if you give the government an inch it will steal a foot. The constitution, bill of rights, and civil rights are barely acknowledged by the government these days. It looks as if I've been proven correct. The above pieces of paper are worthless. They are nothing more than historic relics that have no relevance anymore. Those in power do what they want and so many people are apparently oblivious or in denial about what's been taking place the last several years. Maybe now people might want to pay the attention to the liberals that so many have been mocking for so long.
I think it's safe to say that the “land of the free” is becoming a totalitarian state since many of the above acts are features of totalitarianism.
