Welcome to Day 75: We are about to join the ranks of many Third World countries that we fire missiles at on a daily basis. In the name of security, we are one step away from the foundation of permanent martial law in the US. If you’ve looked at how the US defines “terrorism”, you should be afraid of how such ambiguity in the form of legislation could be interpreted by those with the worst intentions.
Benjamin Franklin once wrote “Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.”
Unfortunately, this wasn’t our choice or the choice of the 99% (or even many from the 1%!) to give up essential liberty. The choice was made for us by 61 turncoat members of Congress. It’s time to raise our voices now! Call your senators. Call the White House. This bit of legislation needs to be wiped clean from the spending bill.
