If ever there was a doubt that the USA is an international hypocrite, in terms of its foriegn policy and the construction of its legal systems, then
I believe that doubt can now be banished.
The USA has touted democracy to nations which do not practice it, for decades, and where democracy has been absent, have worked to install it by
force and by subterfuge, by political pressure, and by proxy activist groups, and US sponsored terrorism. And yet, despite all the sacrifices made by
its military men and women, despite all the vetrans coming home missing limbs, or suffering PTSD, democracy cannot be found in the USA itself.
Unless the people are made aware of the changes thier government is making to the law, in all and every case, and how that law is being applied, how
can they vote from an informed position, wether for thier president or any other elected official? How can any person in the United States of America,
a nation built on the foundation laid by its constitution, feel themselves to be adequately aware of the activities of its government, in order to
know wether or not to support that government in its activities, or seek to oust it with voices full of great indignation?
Without transparency there is no democracy, because democracy relies on an informed electorate to operate in the manner which it is supposed to. If
these legal changes are being made without any reference to the wishes of the people, without any permission from the same, then they are in and of
