"Whatever the issue might be, whether it’s mass surveillance, no-knock raids, or the right to freely express one’s views about the government, we’ve moved into a new age in which the rights of the citizenry are being treated as a secondary concern by the White House, Congress, the courts and their vast holding of employees, including law enforcement officials."

Absolutely true. Big Brother is here...we're just waiting for the "coming out" party.

    Absolutely true and there is not nearly enough outrage from the public. Sad to think so many have taken these rights and privileges in our constitution for granted.
     -- J Allen, Arlington, Va

    The protocols of monarchy and dictatorship have now been implemented unconstitutionally, but obviously the ruling class knows what it is doing and the sovereign American citizen has been transformed into a 'subject' of the 'crown.' Freedom is in the consciousness and culture of a person -- if that culture is one of subservience to arbitrary authority and the mindset is that of a plebiscite, a Caesar is not far behind.

    We must stand tall in restoring "We the People!"

    Individual sovereign rights are being treated more as nonexistent than a mere secondary.
