Can America recover from being programmed by the media & politicians to believe that our biggest threats are from overseas and not at home?
I feel that most in America are fearful of a threat from outside our country. It seems to me that we should take a look at what is happening here in our own land. To our own people by the people we put in office to represent us as a society. We need to hold these people accountable for their actions when they say one thing to get a vote, and do the total opposite once in office for their best interest. I'm sure the conspiracy theorist label will be thrown out there and name calling is fine if that is what you want to resort to. I'm looking for informed answers from people who feel that they have a grasp of what is really going on. Fear is a big tool to get a population to give up liberties and freedoms they wouldn't otherwise give up in the name of security. In the last twelve years we have seen the oath to uphold the constitution for politicians, police, and military go by the wayside it seems to fight "terror" in the name of national security. I feel we need to work together as a nation to hold these people accountable. When following orders gets to the point of having to break the oath you swore to uphold our constitution from enemies foreign & DOMESTIC that means we must stand up to those giving the orders if it violates what you swore to uphold. I am an avid supporter of both police and military for their willingness to serve and protect the freedoms we do still have. Like my ability to pose a question such as this without FEAR of being silenced. I guess my point is the erosion of the constitution as a base from which to keep tyranny and oppression from becoming accepted without seeing it happening right in front of us. Thanks for reading my thoughts. Hello NSA!!!
