You want to know what surprises me? I'm not surprised anymore about what the goobermint will do in the name of security.

The Gestapo, KGB, SS, and other organizations and government agencies have done a lot over their existence to take a look at personal freedoms that people enjoy. Little by little, those freedoms are gone. Civil rights used to have a meaning in the world. It has changed in the definition by people who want to thwart civil rights. In 2001 and 2002, after 9/11 we allowed our government to take some of our civil rights and freedom in exchange for what they called security. We gave up a piece of our delectable pie for the government to take something they have redefined through fear and our pleasure.

Having lived in countries that have had martial law, a dictator type of rule and even some that have a state religion, I believe we have fallen to a state with our legislators who are meant to protect us against a subversive government have allowed the chief executive to use power to take away our freedoms.

When we lose more of them, the balance will fall to a position that may not be recoverable. The media has taken control of our minds. They divide people and split our freedoms for naught.

So might I suggest,
Rather than buy aircraft carriers, fighter jets, and Millions of soldiers,

The best thing our Government, the CIA, NSA, Home Land Security and Department of Defense can do is give everyone in the world free smartphones!

Since it works good against us American citizens.
