1. “The 1st Amendment protects speech, religion, assembly and the press:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or
of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
There are notable cases that are well documented that vary in nature of citizens in the United States being detained indefinitely without due process,
the rights of people to protest are also being denied and people are being arrested for peaceful protest. They can literally arrest any U.S. citizen
for any reason or no reason and detain them without bail or trail for speaking out against policies or against the government in general or for any
number of arbitrary reasons they’ve given a list for. At least one of many things that are on that list nearly every American can identify with and
be guilty of such as: having a bumper sticker on your car, wearing a hoodie, driving a van, talking to police officers, being a Christian, being
frustrated with “mainstream ideologies”, being anti-abortion, suspicious of centralized federal authority, and much much more. My point is, this
amendment is on its last legs and mostly dead. In fact I am fearful to post this, this, call to attention, call to action anywhere where it can be
linked to me and yet I feel as though outright exposure while putting myself at risk may be one of the best ways to protect me if I am to try and
change anything at all. If this gets enough attention to get on the radar of big brother then maybe I will have gotten enough attention to be a martyr
for the people; should anything happen to me. It’s a risk I’m willing to take because as a truly patriotic American; one should fight for one’s
country and the beliefs the country was founded on if one wishes to live in said country. We “the people” must protect ourselves from tyranny.
It’s in the constitution.
2. “The 2nd Amendment states:
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be
Anyone who owns a gun or goes shooting or is educated and aware of their surroundings will tell you that the mainstream media and lawmakers have been
attempting, thus far unsuccessfully, to take away guns or gun rights in a variety of ways, especially in the last few years. Every time some major gun
related massacre occurs the media and lawmakers are quick to blame guns and not any of the other circumstances surrounding their use. While America
hasn’t outright had its guns taken away yet, they are taking what guns or ammunition can be bought slowly, piece by piece. Ultimately the goal is to
simply to disarm the public and make them easier to control. How can a disarmed public affectively even attempt to defend their freedoms from a
tyrannical government without guns? They can’t, which is one reason I’m trying to get people to wake up and see what’s right in front of them
before it’s too late. They already have the FEMA camps ready and our domestic homeland security or dhs as they are called for short are armed with
vehicles that are more war ready then hummers currently used in wars that are already being fought. Fortunately, we haven’t lost this one yet but
they will keep trying. I have no evidence of such to provide currently, but I have seen enough evidence to make me believe that they may have even had
a hand in at least some of the tragedies provoking gun laws.
3. “The 4th Amendment prevents unlawful search and seizure:
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated,
and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the
persons or things to be seized.”
The government already uses drones to spy on Americans, it’s incredibly well documented even by the mainstream media and more recently Edward
Snowden has leaked information about the FBI’s prism computer system which basically is a huge computer system monitoring the activities of American
citizens over the internet indiscriminately without warrant or anything. On top of that, the government is trying to find Edward Snowden guilty of
treason for leaking that information, yet, I feel as though he’s one of the few rare true Americans in this country standing for what he believes is
right by divulging the details of this illegal breach of privacy by a government agency. Snowden shouldn’t be what the mainstream media is concerned
with. The mainstream media should rally the public to hold the government accountable for breaching the trust of the people it is sworn to defend and
protect the liberties of. Makes you wonder why everyone is so quiet in mainstream media about wrong doings perpetrated by the government and so ready
to report a government friendly stance. I would wager it’s either because of fear of indefinite detention or because of money. Again though, I have
no proof other than observation and deduction. I’m sure there are articles that could be found that might help determine such though.
There are other programs either in place or already in the works created by the NSA to do similar things that prism does. For more information google
4. “The 6th Amendment guarantees the right to hear the criminal charges levied against us and to be able to confront the witnesses who have
testified against us, as well as speedy criminal trials, and a public defender for those who cannot hire an attorney:
In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein
the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the
accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the
Assistance of Counsel for his defense.
Well obviously those subjected to indefinite detention or assassination are victims of the destruction of the 6th amendment. In cases where the
government is involved they can prosecute cases based on secret evidence that may not be seen by the judge, the jury, or even the defendant.
There are several more examples that I could list and I could list their corresponding amendments but I think I’ve already reached my point because
I’m getting tired of pointing everything out. This is where I got the majority of that information for this writing:
Although there are several places you can find the same information. I highly recommend
reading the “The End of America” by Naomi Wolf for a more comprehensive and in depth explanation of the loss of our liberties. The truth is you,
the reader, won’t find the truth until you’ve looked for it yourself. Hopefully, I’ve at least made you curious enough about the rights you have
which are under attack or have outright lost that you will continue to keep looking into other examples and as a result may be moved to action.
After looking at that list, keep in mind, wars and political agendas of the United States are not determined by the current ruling party/president.
The current political party/president is just a face to be mad at, a fall guy, a figurehead to take aim at that has no real meaning if removed. The
current political party/president is also a distraction. It’s easier for both, groups of people and individuals, to have biases based on political
beliefs they have long held as sacred (because views pushed upon them by their parents or based on old misconceptions that for the most part where
likely exaggerated to make people easy to divide to begin with) and to point to the opposite party they believe in when something isn’t going the
way they believe it should. Some people consider Obama to be equivalent to the anti-christ or something along those lines, mostly republicans that
hate “the liberals” for taking away some rights and not doing what they said they were going to do. But before Obama, the same thing happened with
Bush. Bush was taking away our rights too, or making it easier for the next guy to take our rights away which is exactly what’s happening. If I’m
preaching to the choir, all the better, now go and convince your fellow Americans of the truth and let’s do something about it. Let’s find those
accountable and put them on trial. Even though the president may just be a fall guy for whatever force is controlling his political actions, holding
the president accountable even though he may not truly be responsible may be as close to holding those who are truly responsible accountable, and
would, at the very least, send a very clear message that the powers that be have overstepped their bounds and will be held accountable if they can be
detained and subject to trial.
I encourage decentralization of government; the highest forms of government should be on state levels instead of their being a federal level. That way
the local government can be more adept at handling laws appropriately for the region in which they control and the government at that point wouldn’t
be quite so overwhelming. Federal laws shouldn’t even exist in my opinion. They aren’t necessary. State laws could easily cover the same function
and be more appropriate for each state on a state to state basis of beliefs. Localized government authority is easier for “the people” to control
and that, in my opinion, is necessary to avoid tyranny.
