Yesterday I learned that my country leaped head first into fascism. It was at the behest of MY president that I voted for and thought, hoped, needed would walk US back from the tyranny of the last administration. Yesterday the senate, Democrats and Republicans alike voted in favor of NDAA and the provision that removes Habeas corpus. I found out that my president requested it. This is a betrayal of our founding fathers, it trashes the 10th amendment and gives opposition the ability to call My President and Democrats BIG GOVERNMENT COMMUNISTS. If you do not veto this bill and re-word it to give US back our basic rights and protections WHY WOULD WE/I VOTE FOR YOU IN 2012? It would be abundantly clear that elections do not matter. A politician may have a D or R flag pinned on but it is all the same ideology and contempt for Democracy, peace, environment (loosened EPA regulations and pursuit of fossil fuels) and free speech (SOPA). I am truly terrified because I openly dissent and question authority when authority is clearly wrong. Now my dissent potentially makes me a terrorist. Because I have written to you and others saying this is wrong, NDAA is wrong I just may have opened myself up to a Bradley Manning and find myself disappeared. Like they did in USSR, as they do now in China, North Korea, and Iran. I never thought as I read Orwell’s 1984 and Brave New World or as I watched the movie Brazil that at the age of 37 those fictional dystopic futures were going to be Our/My reality.
THE HOTLINKS DO NOT APPEAR IN THE EMAIL I SENT TO OUR PRESIDENT BUT HAVE ADDED THEM HERE TO ENABLE READERS TO FACT CHECK MY STATEMENTS AND UNDERSTAND THE REASON FOR MY OUTRAGE.
