People speak of the onrush of the police state. I think that many do not understand how fast it comes, or how thorough it will be.
America is no longer a democracy.If you think this a rash assertion, ask yourself
whether you have the slightest influence over policies that matter to you. Suppose that you want to end the wars, shrink the military, end affirmative action, genuinely change education, or reform a hostile and unworkable bureaucracy. Who do you vote for? Important policies are made in faceless bureaucracies immune to public influence. National politics employs a sort of political price-fixing, in which you are permitted to choose among a number on indistinguishable candidates and told that you are having an election. None of this is going to stop. — Fred On Everything
