The seizure of our political system by special interest groups has, over time, called forth anger on my part. But it has not been the blind, unthinking anger of someone who has been worked into a perpetual rage by the political pitchmen of the mass media. Instead it is the steady, rational indignation of a well-informed citizen about the fact that our Constitutionally mandated rights and privileges are being usurped by the politicians and unelected officials .... all under the guise of “combating terror and protecting the Homeland”.
It has been happening in plain sight right before our very eyes for more than the past several years, but even more so since the advent of the National Security State which was imposed on the U.S. citizens by president George W. Bush and his evil neoconservative vice president Dick Cheney .... and, unfortunately, continued by president Obama.
And my anger has been growing steadily, much of which has probably seeped into this Blog. Just thought you should know.
