Welcome the to American Police State

The provisions of NDAA which allow for indefinite detention of U.S. citizens and allows the military to be used domestically as a police force go into effect March 1st. Tomorrow as of this writing.

Welcome to the American Police State. And I don't mean the American Fascist State, at least not of today, I mean the police state.

Mitt Romney supported this bill, saying that Americans must trust their leaders not to abuse their powers. Yet, it is a critical Republican tenant of governance that we are a nation of laws, not of men. Indeed, what point is there to the Bill of Rights or the Constitution at all if we are to simply trust our leaders to make things up as they see fit?

George Washington had a cult of personality associated with him that was comparable to that of the one surrounding Joseph Stalin and other dictators. He was also a man of legendary nobility and integrity. Yet he declined the powers which we now have given to our president.

Washington, for all his integrity, for all his nobility, even with within his presidency facing an armed rebellion against the government and hostile natives within American soil, knew better than to trust himself with such power. Not in the name of security, not for his own gain.

The Tea Party has long argued that the modern United States could learn a thing or two from our founding fathers.

I very much agree.

This is why I think that congress has not done much for income inequality. They're all rich. You can't expect rich men to understand the plight of the poor or even the middle class.

Corporations are People.

This is what I think it would be like if corporations really were people and thus worthy of rights.
