The Revolution Will Not Be Televised

Pleas watch. The Revolution has enter the beginning stages. The internet is our old Parisian cafes, where the initial phase of the French Revolution began.

Is it time for Revolution?

As our nation spirals downwards towards a fascist society; is it our duty, as Americans, to rise up and recreate our government? Day after day we are threatened by our government of more wars, of a weaker economy, of more terrorism and of the loss of our liberties. Freedom is nothing but a farce in this nation, we are united only in our hatred for the ‘other’ political party. Only our government is to blame for this. They have created enemies abroad and made us enemies with one and the other domestically. They have created an illusion of choice, yet in reality every candidate is the same; greedy, destructive and dishonest. Should we stand idle by as our beloved country heads down the same road as many great nations before her? Should we give up on our belief of freedom and liberty for all? We hold the key to our own futures. We, the people, are capable of enacting change. It is up to us, to our actions and words. Revolution is no longer a matter of if, but a matter of when. Long live the revolution and long live our Constitution!

Loss of Liberty

 

Thomas Jefferson said it best, “The two enemies of the people are criminals and government, so let us tie the second down with the chains of the Constitution so the second will not become the legalized version of the first.” Sadly the people weren’t able to ‘chain’ down the government; instead the government is in the process of chaining us down. Fear is the number one tool used to oppress the people and strip them of their liberty. Fear has led to the rise of fascist states, such as Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy, and the blind following of thousands to commit atrocities against ones fellow man. Today our beloved country is headed on the path so many great and extinct nations have headed down before. With the seemingly perpetual wars in the Middle East to the constant fear instilled on us by our government, the time of a free and prosperous America is limited.
9/11 is a day which will be stamped in the minds of all people who have lived through it. From the harrowing efforts of our fellow man sacrificing life and limb to save one another to the horrific live scenes of the eventual collapse of the former most iconic buildings in the New York skyline. We will never forget, but what most people do forget, or never even knew about, is that a law called the PATRIOT Act was passed by our congress and signed into law shortly following the attacks that gave the government immense power over the people. This law was passed due to one thing and one thing only, fear. The government exploited the fear of the people, the fear of more attacks, to partake in one of the greatest power grabs of all time. Here is a short list of some of the constitutional rights the PATRIOT Act killed:

-Freedom of Association – Government may monitor religious and political institutions without suspecting criminal activity to assist terror investigation.
– 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 investigation.
-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.

That is a lot of rights we no longer have. No matter what your opinion is on our wars, economy, and whatever else may be wrong with this nation, you cannot ignore the fact that our constitution is what reigns supreme in this country, and when is is trampled upon like it has been, things need to change! Sadly, the PATRIOT Act isn’t the only thing that is killing our liberty, another more recent law signed by President Obama just last year called the NDAA of 2012 is just as bad, if not, worse than the PATRIOT Act.
The National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 completely legalizes the indefinite detention of American citizens by our very own government! Say goodby to trials, because that’s a thing of the past. If the government doesn’t like you then all they have to do is lock you up and throw away the key then look away, it is that easy. One great example of this is the Bradley Manning incident. Manning leaked thousands of classified documents the the whistle blower site, Wiki leaks. Since he was caught, in 2010, he has been detained without a trial way past the 120 day limit the military sets at the time frame a trial must take place. But, due to our ignorance and fear, this is very much legal. It is a sad day when our right are openly exploited.
Regardless of one’s political association there is no denying the fact that are liberties are being destroyed more and more by the day. When the people are able to wake up and see this, real change can be enacted. We will no longer have to choose our presidents based on choosing between the lesser of two evils, but we will be able to choose based on our beliefs in liberty and the democratic way. One day, and one day soon, our country will revert to the envisoned republic of our forefathers, or else our children and their children will be growing up in a very different America. In closing I will leave you with yet another Thomas Jefferson quote, “When governments fear the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.”

The Western World

The problem faced by Americans isn’t just, well, an American problem. All over the western world governments are growing and the peoples rights are shrinking.  From clandestine American laws, to the growing police state in the UK, to massive over regulation by the EU; we are simply losing our rights. We, as a whole people, from what is known as Western Civilization must unite and fight these injustices. Democracy and freedom was created by the west and will be re-created by the west. We need our own version of an Arab Spring. No longer can we stand idle by watching our civil liberties get thrown away like yesterdays garbage, unite people of all creeds, race, and religion. Liberty depends on it. United, we are strong!

El problema que enfrentan los estadounidenses no es sólo, pues, un problema estadounidense. En todo el mundo los gobiernos occidentales están creciendo y los derechos de los pueblos se reducen. De clandestinos leyes norteamericanas, a la policía del estado creciendo en el Reino Unido, a la regulación masiva en la UE; simplemente estamos perdiendo nuestros derechos. Nosotros, como todo un pueblo, de lo que se conoce como civilización occidental deben unirse y luchar contra estas injusticias. La democracia y la libertad fue creado por el oeste y se vuelven a crear por el oeste. Tenemos nuestra propia versión de una primavera árabe. No podemos seguir de brazos cruzados viendo nuestras libertades civiles se desechan como basura de ayer, unir a la gente de todos los credos, razas y religiones. La libertad depende de ello. Unidos, somos fuertes!

Das Problem der Amerikaner konfrontiert ist nicht nur gut, ein amerikanisches Problem. Überall in der westlichen Welt die Regierungen wächst und die Völker Rechte schrumpfen. Von geheimen amerikanischen Gesetze, die wachsende Polizeistaat in Großbritannien, zu einer massiven Überregulierung durch die EU, wir sind einfach zu verlieren unsere Rechte. Wir, als ein ganzes Volk, müssen von dem, was als westliche Zivilisation bekannt zu vereinen und kämpfen diese Ungerechtigkeiten. Demokratie und Freiheit wurde vom Westen geschaffen und wird durch den Westen neu erstellt werden. Wir müssen unsere eigene Version von einem arabischen Frühling. Nicht mehr können wir im Leerlauf stehen gerade unsere bürgerlichen Freiheiten weg wie gestern Müll geworfen, vereinen Menschen aller Glaubensrichtungen, Rasse und Religion. Freiheit hängt davon ab. United, sind wir stark!

Il problema affrontato dagli americani non è solo, beh, un problema americano. In tutto il mondo i governi occidentali sono in crescita e dei diritti dei popoli si stanno riducendo. Da clandestini leggi americane, per lo stato di polizia in crescita nel Regno Unito, di massiccia regolamentazione, da parte dell’UE, non facciamo altro che perdere i nostri diritti. Noi, come un intero popolo, da ciò che è noto come la civiltà occidentale devono unirsi e combattere queste ingiustizie. La democrazia e la libertà è stato creato da ovest e sarà ri-creato da ovest. Abbiamo bisogno la nostra versione di una primavera araba. Non possiamo più rimanere fermi a guardare le nostre libertà civili vengono gettati via come spazzatura ieri, unire le persone di ogni credo, razza, e religione. Liberty dipende da questo. United, siamo forti!

Le problème rencontré par les Américains n’est pas juste, bien, un problème américain. Partout dans le monde les gouvernements occidentaux sont de plus en plus et les droits des peuples sont en diminution. De clandestins lois américaines, à l’état policier de plus en plus au Royaume-Uni, à la réglementation sur massif de l’Union européenne, nous sommes tout simplement de perdre nos droits. Nous, en tant que peuple, de ce qui est connu comme la civilisation occidentale doit s’unir et lutter contre ces injustices. La démocratie et de la liberté a été créé par l’ouest et sera re-créé par l’Occident. Nous avons besoin de notre propre version d’un printemps arabe. Nous ne pouvons plus rester les bras croisés en regardant nos libertés civiles sont jetés comme des ordures hier, unir les gens de toutes les croyances, la race et la religion. La liberté en dépend. Unis, nous sommes forts!
