Yeah - No kidding

It'll happen.

Naomi Wolf laid it all out in The End of America. Here's how incrementalism works: Obama is already killing US citizens with drones - but they're brown citizens, so everyone kind of just ignores it. Sure that kid was a citizen, but he's brown, and he was over there.

But the precedent has been set. Citizens are killed by executive order. Through incrementalism, it isn't much of a stretch until they're killing "regular" ones, right here at home.
