Yes, its a pipe dream, but as a species we tend to make some of our dreams a reality, some good and some bad.
Good intentions and a code of honor is what needs to be instilled in us and admired. First and foremost I will never turn my back on the people of my country, previously as a soldier (yea yea I already know what you are going to say) and now as a citizen. I just think that if we set an example for each other as moral people and take into consideration what is for the basic welfare of everyone, all other issues will fall into place.

For the law was not intended for people who do what is right. It is for people who are lawless and rebellious, who are ungodly and sinful, who consider nothing sacred and defile what is holy, who kill their father or mother or commit other murders.
We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

Yea I believe this is what they call a Police State. Ever so slowly they tighten the grip. Before you know it we won't be able to breath. I can't wait for the next big event in the news that allows them to take more of our supposed freedoms.
Oh yea I forgot, they are doing all of this for our own good.
