Since 9/11, the United States and its people have become obsessed with seeing terrorists everywhere. And when we in the U.S. see terrorists, we start thinking and talking safety. Anytime that a country talks about keeping its citizens “safe,” get ready to hear it has to pass a law to keep us safe. Well, get ready to lose some of your rights, too. It is getting ridiculous here with all the laws our representatives want to pass to keep us “safe.”
Some laws have nothing to do with keeping Americans safe.
At one time in the U.S., a child could get some lemons, water, ice and start a lemonade stand. Now, if a child tries to run a lemonade stand, the police will show up. The police will tell the child that he cannot sell lemonade to anyone. That he needs a license. Absolutely ridiculous!
If a farmer grows vegetables and tries to sell them, he can’t. First, he has to get a license approved by FDA (Food and Drug Administration). Not only does a farmer have to get a license, his fruit and vegetables have to be checked for how safe the fruit and vegetables are. And the farmer cannot give away his vegetables to anyone. It is against the laws of the United States to do so. He can’t even use his vegetables to have a dinner party. The police will show up and tell him that it’s against the law to do so. They’ll tell him that the vegetables have to be thrown out. Again, absolutely ridiculous! People are starving all over the world and we throw away food.
In December of 2011, the United passed a law called the National Defense Authorization Act. This act allows any citizen to be indefinitely held without right to a lawyer, or a trial. So if the United States feels that someone might be a threat to its security, even if there’s no proof whatsoever, it can hold that person for as long as it wants without trial. It sounds very much like what’s happening in other countries that are dictatorships.
The United States is turning into a dictatorship (or I should say, it’s a dictatorship). There’s nothing a citizen can do that doesn’t require government approval. I’m surprised we can still have sex without the government looking on. Oh, no, I take that back about sex. There are very religious people who feel they should tell us who and when we should have sex. So sex is not safe to have without government approval. If someone has sex with another of the same-sex, the police might show up at their front door. This is how bad it is getting here in the United States.
When I read news about what’s happening in the rest of the world (citizens killed, not allowed to practice religion of their choice, no free press), I see the United States heading in the same direction. In a few years, the United States will be just another country bullying its citizens. We are definitely headed in that direction, but Americans are totally unaware of what is happening around them. They really don’t care what the government does, as long as it keeps them “safe.”
WAKE UP, AMERICA! Your freedoms are flying out the window.
