The government is in the pockets of big business - both parties are equally corrupt. Instead of backing the same old ways in politics, let's return to the federalist ideal of a small federal government that regulates business, not our civil liberties.
They passed the NDAA act (indefinite detention of American citizens, both at home and abroad, legalised via this act), HR 347 (anti-protest law), and NDRP (which is in essence a land grab law for the governmnet) - how many more liberty destroying acts will they pass in the name of security? Is anyone happy with the TSA violating the 4th amendment on a daily basis, or the PATRIOT act's extension?
They will hide behind religion, good business practices, and any other excuse to allow the corruption and lies to continue. They have no reason to want to stop them. We need to a) repeal the laws above, b) bring businesses and the banking industry to account for the multitude of frauds, and c) have a good long look at who we want for president.
I personally support +Ron Paul
, as he is the only one who is not tied into these "special interest groups" that all the other politicians are in the pockets of. He wants liberty to be restored to the American people, and for the country to return in essence to its roots. If anyone has something to say against that, feel free while you can. I'd say the 1st amendment is the next one of our rights on the Congressional hit list.
