Stuff your democracy, US is no longer considered a democracy and I have the facts to prove this, denying these claims is admitting you are
narrowminded and unwilling to accept the facts, rather willing to live on in that glass prison you call a democracy.
Its been long due to post some current myths that are playing in most people's mindsets.
1 - Finland, Iceland, Norway, Netherlands
5 - Canada
6 - Ireland
7 - Germany, Portugal, Sweden
10 - Denmark
Whats that I hear you say, all European countries in the top ten? What place did the land of the free achieve? A measly 17th place. Wanna know why it
only got the 17th place? Apparently the US likes to stick its journalists in jail when they don't want to release their sources of information hence
the lower placement on the list.
How's that for 'freedom' of press?
The US' 17th place was lowered because of the number of journalists arrested for refusing to reveal their sources, the report says.
EU member countries score well in the list - except for Italy, ranked 40th.
Needless to explain why Italy scores so low on the list!
Some more links on this particular subject :
Next example is the Patriot Act, you can all read up on it by downloading this pdf file. www.alta.org...
Here are only a few of the paragraphs but this document holds so much more of all these wonderfull rights and duties ya'll seem to love so much.
SEC. 1008. FEASIBILITY STUDY ON USE OF BIOMETRIC IDENTIFIER
SCANNING SYSTEM WITH ACCESS TO THE FBI
INTEGRATED AUTOMATED FINGERPRINT IDENTIFICATION
SYSTEM AT OVERSEAS CONSULAR POSTS AND
POINTS OF ENTRY TO THE UNITED STATES.
SEC. 355. AUTHORIZATION TO INCLUDE SUSPICIONS OF ILLEGAL
ACTIVITY IN WRITTEN EMPLOYMENT REFERENCES.
Lets look at what amendments it is in violation of :
Violates the First Amendment freedom of speech guarantee, right to peaceably assemble provision, and petition the government for redress of grievances
provision; it violates the First Amendment to the Constitution three times. More on this below.
Violates the Fourth Amendment guarantee of probable cause in astonishingly major and repeated ways. The Fourth Amendment to the Constitution reads:
"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be
violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be
searched, and the persons of things to be seized." The Patriot Act, now passed and the law of the land, has revoked the necessity for probable cause,
and now allows the police, at any time and for any reason, to enter and search your house ó and not even tell you about it.
Violates the Fifth Amendment by allowing for indefinite incarceration without trial for those deemed by the Attorney General to be threats to national
security. The Fifth Amendment guarantees that no person shall be deprived of life, liberty or property without due process of law, and the Patriot Act
does away with due process. It even allows people to be kept in prison for life without even a trial.
Violates the Sixth Amendment guarantee of the right to a speedy and public trial. Now you may get no trial at all, ever.
Violates the Eighth Amendment (cruel and unusual punishment).
Violates the 13th Amendment (punishment without conviction).
It gives the government the authority to eavesdrop on conversations without a court order and can do so wether it be electronic, digital or spoken
conversations through bugging, wiretapping,...
You can get arrested without any chance for a court or the right to a lawyer can be dismissed, you can be kept indefenitely until they decide it is OK
to clear you.
Read through following articles,
Be sure to read the EFF link cause it describes pretty nicely and thorough just what this Patriot Act is about.
Seems like we have to call in someone who can definitely sort this whole mess out. How about this one for instance...?
What these points show is that America is slowly becoming the land of the free(dom-impaired)
More myths will be following soon and will be revealed for what they really are namely MYTHS.
So Ultra-Phoenix, you narrowminded silly excuse for a human being, keep living this lie you have been living all your life. I for one am smarter then
that, if all people woke up for a change our futures would be much better.
