A List of Things You Didn’t Know You’d Lost

It won't matter to most of you until they come and PHYSICALLY imprison you because, apparently, that is the only "liberty" you hold dear. So long as you are not imprisoned, they're not infringing on your rights, eh? In the immortal of Earl Pitts: Wake up AMERICA!

The following are examples of rights that the President and congress have already expunged (as reported by the Associated Press):

Freedom of Association - government may monitor religious and political institutions without suspecting criminal activity to assist terror investigations.

Freedom of Information - government has closed once-public immigration hearings, has secretly detained hundreds of people without charges, and has encouraged bureaucrats to resist public records requests.

Freedom of Speech - government may prosecute librarians or keepers of any other records if they tell anyone that the government subpoenaed information related to a terror investigation.

Right to Legal Representation - government may monitor federal prison jailhouse conversations between attorneys and clients, and deny lawyers to Americans accused of crimes.

Freedom from Unreasonable Searches - government may search and seize Americans' papers and effects without probable cause to assist terror investigations

Right to a Speedy and Public Trial - government may jail Americans indefinitely without a trial.

Right to Liberty - Americans may be jailed without being charged or being able to confront witnesses against them.

The Bush administration has done more to dismantle Constitutional protections of our liberties than any other President in modern memory. It seems the people believe that until federal Storm Troopers knock down the doors of their homes and drag them off to the gulags, they have lost no freedoms. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Like lemmings, the vast majority of you are willing to follow the immoral, illegitimate leadership of this DOOMED EXPERIMENT in democracy because "it's better than the alternative". You have no fear of loss so long as it's not your own. They've destroyed the dollar, they've ruined the name "America" and they have implicated every one of us along with them. There is a reckoning coming and I've chosen to be on the side of liberty.

It's time for you to choose what you believe in. You'd better be sure you're willing to meet your maker once you've made your decision.
