ARE AMERICANS READY TO CROWN A KING?
July 26, 2002
In an attempt to alert my readers of the increasing propensity of the Bush administration to foist unconstitutional, even tyrannical, laws upon the American people (under the rubric of fighting terrorism), I found that many readers appear more than ready to accept these Orwellian, police state attacks against their freedoms. Even though more people have been murdered at the hands of tyrannical governments than from all the terrorists and outlaws of history combined, Americans today seem to exude a trust in big government such as has never been seen in the history of the republic. The following letters that I have recently received illustrate this point.
“Allow federal police to search and seize at will? It would be nice if this was in place on September 11. Allow federal police to incarcerate and indefinitely hold suspects without arrest or warrant and with no legal recourse by the person seized? Good! It’s about time! Allow the U.S. military to conduct lethal operations on U.S. soil? Good! Allow the federal government to act in secret? Good!” -BF-
“If President Bush were doing none of these things you suggest are too commie-like, he would be accused of doing nothing to keep us safe. I have come to like and admire him. If he is creating a empire, then others are doing worse. –CD–
“Most of the people (both Republicans and Democrats) seem to either be in favor of these things, or indifferent. I am in Mid-Michigan, and I would say 90% fall into the in-favor-of/don’t-care category. I really like President Bush.” –DL–
“ALL HAIL TO THE KING. I would gladly give a crown to George. You (Chuck Baldwin) are my enemy and King George will help me in destroying you. If you hate what America is becoming, MOVE.” -LR-
Are these letters reflective of the thinking of most Americans?………..
