The United States Senate voted 93 to 7 to legalize the arrest, torture and murder without judicial review for people like me.
If you knew me, you might like me. I have never committed a crime. I am not a violent man. I have not been in a fight since 2nd grade when a fifth grader attacked me. I did send him home crying to his mother but that was self-defense.
As an adult, I have always worked and paid my taxes even for wars I disapproved of. My only irritating point is that I like to argue about politics. That does annoy some people which is my problem. Discussing politics and Bailouts for bankers can be fatal in these times.
I must confess. I am the man who wrote ”25 Reasons To Absolutely Despise Bankers And Their Minions.” I was blessed with intelligence and have used it to study Wall Street and how they stole tens of trillions of dollars from us. In modern America being intelligent, honest and outspoken can be fatal. And that is my problem.
Politicians no longer pay attention to voters. I don’t know why they bother talking to us, but it is campaign season again. So here comes my plea. The politicians are going to lie to you anyway. They always break their promises. So this year please for my sake ask them if they are opposed to the government arresting law abiding citizens and holding them indefinitely with out trial on the basis of secret evidence and secret proceedings.
Some of you might think you can’t be arrested. But these police states can get out of hand. Have you ever had an angry neighbor or been involved in an accident with a crazy person? Are you a pretty woman who has been bothered by a man who was a lunatic? Or are you a married man with a good looking wife or daughter? In a police state that is sufficient cause to be arrested and even killed. I remember reading police cases in the old Soviet Union a couple of years after the death of Stalin in which murderers were discovered who had disappeared people. The relatives of the murder victims were too terrified to even file a missing person report. That could happen to you. In modern America you could be killed by a criminal who buries your body. Then your family being frightened of the police let serial killers literally get away with murder.
So I hope I have persuaded you to ask every candidate for President, Congress and Senate on 2012 to sign a pledge to repeal the law that allows the government to arrest you and me, torture you and me and kill you and me without trial. I don’t know about you but I am starting to fear the federal government a lot more than I did the Russians before the fall of the Berlin Wall.
Author’s Note: You can find that essay I mentioned here:
Because of the holidays few people have seen my most recent essay in which I explain how Bernanke is going to print enough money to bail out every Bilderberg owned bank in Europe and New York.
Hint: This will make most Americans and Europeans so poor that food will be a vague memory for many of us.
