People do not walk barefoot because there are no government shoe factories
The WAR ON IMMIGRATION, THE WAR ON POVERTY, THE WAR ON TERROR, THE WAR ON ILLITERACY, THE WAR IN IRAQ, THE WAR ON DRUGS, are all wars on people. Even illiteracy, because if you don’t like the government solution to the problem, then you can go to jail for not buying into that program. People are the losers, your fellow human beings. The initiation of violence doesn’t solve complex social problems
Just to recap:
- A few weeks ago, Department of Homeland Security purchased hundreds of thousands of rounds of ammunition (some estimates claim a stockpile in the billions, though exact figures are difficult to confirm)
- Last year, Department of Homeland Security purchased or attempted to purchase 7,000 fully automatic 5.56 NATO “personal defense weapons” with 30-round magazines.
- Within the last year, Department of Homeland Security purchased over 2,700 “mine resistant” armored vehicles for use within the United States.
- Less than a year ago, Department of Homeland Security began a program to “accelerate” use of domestic drones.
- A few months ago, Department of Homeland Security inked a $443 million deal to expand its domestic drone fleet.
- Just this week it was reported that recently uncovered government documents reveal that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) unmanned Predator B drone fleet has been custom designed to identify civilians carrying guns and track cell phone signals.
- Obama’s Attorney General Eric Holder claimed in a letter to Senator Rand Paul on Monday: “It is possible, I suppose, to imagine an extraordinary circumstance in which it would be necessary and appropriate under the Constitution and applicable laws of the United States for the President to authorize the military to use lethal force within the territory of the United States.”
- Rand Paul has now passed the twelve-hour mark filibustering the nomination of John Brennan as director of the CIA until he “can no longer speak” to highlight the atrocity of this administration’s belief that it can be justified in assassinating citizens on U.S. soil.
