No Transparency, No Trust
Earlier in the week, Obama's attorney general stated something that is quite alarming. "In this hour of danger, we simply cannot afford to wait until deadly plans are carried out, and we will not," Eric Holder said during a speech at Northwestern University's law school in Chicago.
It's a very ambiguous statement. Why do people talk like this? Why can't they just talk straight to the point? Well, most of the time it's to hide something. Take a look at this video:
What do you think of that! The head of the FBI didn't know whether citizens can be killed on US soil or not. "I'm not sure if that was addressed or not". What? What kind of response is that? To me its absolutely shocking that someone of that stature and position doesn't know the answer to that question. Will we ever know the answer? Probably not, because this tactic is used to change the question at hand.
To get to the point, what is actually going on that the government isn't telling us? Its a perfectly legit question to ask, and we deserve answers.
It's all about the Amendments. The Fourteenth amendment's Due Process Clause prohibits state and local governments from depriving persons of life, liberty, or property without certain steps being taken to ensure fairness. None of the steps toward fairness are being taken here. Constitutional scholar Francis A. Boyle of the University of Illinois Law School recently put the issue into perspective. "The U.S. government has now established a 'death list' for U.S. citizens abroad akin to those established by Latin American dictatorships during their so-called dirty wars,". And we aren't in the light on the issue?
This my friends is just a very small example of the real State of the Union. Until we know everything that's going on up there, it's not a free state. You may think this article is radical; I agree, it's more 'freedom-ish' than the others, but its not way radical. What's radical about asking for transparency in the government? It's nothing new!
Please spread this message to as many people as you can, whether they believe it or not. It's a must that we preserve what dignity and freedom we have, and work to get back the rest.
