It is difficult to read George W. Mantor’s description of how government performs and what he thinks lies in store for common citizens without losing hope. Despite that, I recommend you read it to raise your blood pressure and rouse you from your stupor. There is too much going on to ignore.
As Mr. Mantor says:
The truth is that the only well-armed organized terrorists preparing to come into our communities will be sent by our politicians. If this is how they plan to handle unemployment and poverty domestically, it is hard to envision a time when any sort of even modest global accord could be achieved. Peace on earth? Yeah, good luck with that.
Meanwhile, they’ve been fine tuning the Constitution more to their liking by eliminating the first, fourth, fifth, and fourteenth amendments with the argument that times have changed and surely our founding fathers would want us to bring this quaint, pre-terrorism list of suggestions up to date.
I think that the only thing our founding fathers might have wanted is for us to have fought harder. Now it might be too late.
