This is no different from what was seen in countries like Germany and the USSR before and during WWII, and the tactic is still used in many
non-democratic countries. It is ridiculous that illegal practices like this by our government have been allowed to flourish in America. It is clear
that these veterans are not subversive in that they are not plotting to overthrow the government or anything, which is the only instance where these
types of actions MIGHT be justified. Then again, when a government is doing what the last few regimes have been doing, the people are supposed to rise
up against them, and therefore I do not see how that could be claimed as illegal.
It would be simply because those in power are corrupt, and wish to hold on to their power. That is the only reason, considering our Founding Fathers
told us to fight tyranny. And this, and other actions on their part, definitely constitute tyranny. To disagree is to show one's ignorance in my
opinion, as it is that blatantly obvious. The reason they are doing this to veterans is quite simple really. Veterans have the organizational and
combat skills to actually pose a threat to the government by uniting against them. But such action, even a violent overthrow of the government to
institute a true democracy, is completely justified because of the actions of the current regime. But these vets are not even going that far, yet they
are still locked up and deprived of their liberties and rights.
This is obviously a scare tactic, meant to send a warning that these veterans are not to pursue what they know regarding the illegitimacy of the
government, in that the actions of the government are illegal. Power should automatically revert back to the people, and the government should be
temporarily abolished, and a new, republican and democratic government should be instituted, which is how our government was designed to be in the
first place. I mean there are so many illegal actions by the government it is scary. And all they must do is claim national security, and they don't
have to let ANYONE know of their actions. They can basically do and get away with whatever they wish. How is THAT a democracy, for the people and by
For a long time now the government has forgotten that they work for us. They simply do what they wish, regardless of whether they infringe on the
rights of the citizenry. Why are so many people oblivious to this fact. These people are playing right into the hands of the government, who wish
people to be this way, passive and uncaring. The government will tell them what they want to hear, and will try their best not to disrupt the lives of
average citizens, despite what they are doing behind the scenes, simply so they don't stir up unnecessary awareness by the people.
