Divide and Conquer

Is the name of the game. It comes right out of Goebel's handbook. Cause mayhem in the streets and it will behoove the government to impose martial law for "our own protection." When you sacrifice liberty for safety you get neither.
I found it interesting that President Obama, in response to the NSA spying revelations, said that when he was elected president of the United States he made two promises to the American people. The first was to 'protect them' and the second was to 'uphold the US Constitution.' This tells you where his priorities lie. Lord Brougham famously once said, "An educated citizenry is easy to lead but impossible to enslave." You can't have it both ways. I
am concerned that our country, it's fouled up monetary policy, its misguided wars of aggression, and its designs on a global corporatocracy will spell the end of the America our founding fathers envisioned. At least it was good while it lasted.

Turning the other cheek means standing up to your oppressors when they strike you down.
We need to wake up!
