I couldn't have said it better. 3/4 of Americans are asleep and think that everything will take care of itself. Hard time ahead might wake them up. I hope.

but i do not believe that our police, would do what some other countries police do.. unless our people started doing what other countries people feel, they need to do..
Would you want to live in a world where everyone knew everything about everyone?
And in case you’re wondering, that’s not where we’re headed. Instead, we’re blindly marching towards a dark future where the government knows everything about you but you know nothing about the government.
Remember the media’s hysterical outcry when Obama’s passport details were illegally accessed during the Democratic primaries in 2008? The fact that the privacy of regular citizens is routinely subjected to much more serious abuse was conveniently ignored. The “Patriot” Act, which was supposed to fight terrorism, allows the government to snoop on average citizens, obtain nationwide search warrants without local judicial oversight, monitor private Internet usage (that includes our emails and surfing habits), search our homes and offices without our knowledge, and force libraries and bookstores to turn over our reading records.
There is no financial privacy left in this country.
Banks have become a one stop shop for overzealous government snoops and other privacy violators, and we’ve been working overtime to impose our paranoid “Know Your Customer” standards on the rest of the world.
Medical privacy has deteriorated in a similar manner.
Our medical records are being transcribed in India and insurance companies and other entities have the right to access our medical history any time they choose.
