Have you wondered how much contempt the government has for our service members? During the presidential inauguration parade, the rifles carried by the marines had their bolts removed. Also notice president obama is standing behind some form of glass, I am going to guess it was bulletproof lexan.
What kind of president do we have that our soldiers can not be trusted with weapons around him, and he stands behind bulletproof glass?
As most of us have forgotten, on Feburary 19th, 1942 Executive Order 9066 signed by franklin d. roosevelt allowed Japanese-Americans to be detained without due process.
Never forget, never again.
The problem is, it can happen again. All the US government has to do is point at someone, say they are a terrorist, and that person can be detained forever without due process. By due process, I mean having their day in court. There is no formal charges, no hearing for bail,,, no nothing. the person is arrested, sent off to a camp, and never heard from again.
Why has the US government granted itself the authority to detain people without due process. I don’t know which one is more dangerous to national stability, an overzealous government, or foreign enemies.
Why would the government fear due process? Why not give the person their day in court?
During the Cold War, we could point and Russia and say “they are the enemy”. Today, it sees the US government points at everyone and says “they are the enemy”.
When the founding fathers created this great nation, they knew what they did not want to become. Due to the atrocities committed upon the 13 colonies by the king of England, the founding fathers knew what an oppressive government was. From that starting point, a system of checks and balances were put into place to ensure the rights of the people would be protected.
Executive Order 9066 signed by franklin d. roosevelt was challenged in court. The supreme court failed to protect the people from an overzealous government. That is what the founding fathers did not want. When the system of balances fails to protect the people, the people can only blame themselves. When a Republic fails, its due to an uneducated voting populace.
While the people blindly voted to same two parties into office, those two parties conspired to strip the people of the rights. While the people slept, the US government declared war on its own citizens.

Since when is it ok to kill US citizens without due process? With the assassination of Anwar al-Awlaki, I guess its open hunting season on people who speak out against the US Government.
Where do we draw the line?
Was Anwar al-Awlaki on the street shooting people? No, he was not. He was on the internet, talking. Since when is talking a crime? I thought political speech was protected for US citizens? Maybe freedom of political speech is only protected when its not “too” critical of the government.
Maybe the government has a sliding scale to judge if someone is “too” radical. If the person scores high in the scale, they will be put to death like a rabid dog? Who gets to make the scale? Who gets to determine who lives and who dies.
