U. S. S. A.

This is not supposed to happen.

Not here. Not in MY country. Not in the country founded on this document with these enumerated rights and this declaration of independence from state-mandated tyrrany signed by these men.

I wrote about this 2 months ago, and then, my family and friends and readers called me over-reactionary. So here I am writing about it again, and I'm sure I'll get "Oh, it's not that bad, we need those troops to help defend us."

The police and sherrifs are supposed to handle law enforcement. The National Guard is supposed to handle civic emergency response. The military is for fighting wars. Deploying the military on United States soil is declaring war against the inhabitants of that land.

That's us, citizens.

And yes, I know they SAY it's to bolster security against terrorism and national emergencies. Just like the Patriot Act and FISA and No-Fly Lists were supposed to do. And yet, everyday citizens are being prosecuted or restricted based on discoveries from these "protective" mandates for non-terrorism or treasonous activity.

George Orwell wrote 1984 as a warning, not a guidebook.

Welcome to the U. S. S. A.
