You complain about the NWO, and folks other than the US Government actually running things, yet you want to give up sovereignty, and have an external force that doesn't have US interests at heart be the arbitrator?
Getting back to your point though- I as a US citizen, don't want a foreign organization deciding US policy.
It wouldn't be doing a very good job for its citizenry if the interests of other nations were a higher priority.
That's not even the same thing. If the USA had concentration camps, and was exterminating millions of people, and was responsible for a war where 50-70million people had died, that would be a little bit different than the reality we see today.
Bush has had 8 yrs, and I still have my freedom of movement/speech, no property has been confiscated, I can do pretty much anything I want(within reason), there's no massacres going on of unpopular/undesirable classes/races of people. I think you're trying to find similarities at all costs.
Would you prefer that they don't do security checks, and your plane gets hijacked/blown up?
What were the circumstances where you got tasered?
Can you cite examples of folks who didn't belong to extremist organizations, or weren't involved in some disorderly conduct, who've been rounded up by the police for no reason, and shipped off to all these FEMA camps that CTers are worried about?
If you lead a normal life(i.e. go to work, participate in whatever recreational activities you enjoy(that aren't illegal), hang out with friends/family, etc..) you're never gonna have any issues from law enforcement.

This is just so sad and hopeless. These poor prisoners have been rotting in Guantanomo since 2001 and they have never had a trial, sentencing or investigation of any kind into their "alleged" crimes - in fact, they've never been charged with ANY crime and so their crimes aren't even alleged.
This is totally against all things that the U.S. stands for.

Excuse me? The US is at WAR with these people! They are prisoners of WAR! They are NOT entitled to a trial in the civilian sense. In fact read the Geneva Convention, the part that explains how combatants NOT in uniform are to be considered spies, and can be killed on sight. Poor prisoners! You are clearly dangerously naive, and thank god you are in no position to protect the rest of us.
