A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
Now that the courts have established that Obama can kill anyone he wants, anywhere he wants, for whatever reason he wants, AND, I have just learned that I live in a "Constitution Free Zone" of America, shouldn't I be "bunkered-up" someplace with all my conservative commentator friends?
Maybe I'm a little "slow." Or maybe I'm subconsciously waiting for the new FEMA Camps to be opened up so I can spend my remaining days on earth REALLY wired-up inside a government cage.
Now, if all this sounds screwy to you, well, it IS screwy. The whole scenario sounds as if it comes from the pen of some novelist with a bad hangover and an equally bad case of paranoia.
But there is a problem.
It all comes right out of today's news headlines.
George Orwell, hate to tell you, sir, but you were WAAAY shy of the mark!

Conspiracy theories? Maybe. But. Just because they ARE conspiracy theories does not mean they are NOT conspiracies!
Soon, the American police state will be complete. Soon the drones will be flying overhead watching our every move -- even when we are out of sight of the ubiquitous cameras mounted everywhere, even when we are not using an electronic communication device which the government is monitoring 24/7.
Americans now live in a cage. Gilded it may be -- but it is still a cage.
Only one thing remains for our imprisonment to be complete. We must give up our guns. We must voluntarily disarm.
The BIG question in the minds of sentient Americans today is this: Will Americans willingly give up the only, the last remaining, avenue open to them to preserve their freedom, or what's left of their freedom?
Americans who are sentient of the intolerable encroachment by our government on our hard won freedom and liberty are fearfully asking themselves this question, in one form or another, incessantly today.
A majority of poll respondents – 52 percent – revealed that someone in their home owns a gun. Those respondents were then asked, “If the government passed a law to take your guns, would you give up your guns or defy the law and keep your guns?”
Approximately 65 percent indicated they would “defy the law,” including 70 percent of Republicans and 52 percent of Democrats who answered the question. Only 22 percent said they would “give up” their guns, while 13 percent were not sure."

Months ago, I suggested the question of drones would come back to haunt -- and to bite -- Americans. That time has arrived. Another amendment to the constitution has just been voided. That would be the Fourth Amendment.
The Fourth Amendment reads: "The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized." That's right out of the Bill of Rights.
More freedom lost. More liberty gone.
Consider this incident: "New Jersey Woman Arrested for Reciting Constitution at Tax Meeting" SOURCE: http://www.infowars.com/new-jersey-woman-arrested-for-reciting-constitution-at-tax-meeting/
How much longer will freedom loving Americans tolerate this RAPE of our constitution?
America is not BECOMING a police state -- WE ARE A POLICE STATE!
The squadrons of aerial "peeping toms" will soon be blotting out the sun over urban areas of America. Rural America will be cursed with them, as well. All Americans will be under surveillance.
I warned above that it would sound like a bad science fiction novel. Trouble is -- it's not fiction. It IS science and our "overlords" have turned it against us.
You may accuse me of paranoia if you choose. I'll accept that. But allow me to state, flat out, that anyone living in America today who is not paranoid is suffering advanced dementia, or is brain dead. When they ARE out to get you, paranoia is just darned good thinking!
