Or in the name of "Security" BTW Russian and Chinese troops will be conducting exercises on American soil in the next 10 days. They will be joining several other nations that will have troops at arms on US soil for an exercise called Grid Ex, which will be a simulation of the power grid being knocked out...that's not at all comforting. And it's all being headed up by the domestic military force known as the DHS...Everyone feeling "secure"?

Most of today's government legislation is designed to do the opposite of what they are named. Patriot Act, Affordable Health Care Act are prime examples of government acts designed to place the people in a position of subservience and dependency upon government rather than promote freedom of choice, personal responsibility and self-sufficiency. Government monopolies and the 'czars' that head them wage war on the people, on private enterprise, and on private property. They are designed to tax and steal outright in the name of the 'law.' Largely to blame is the war on drugs and the all-encompassing war on terror by which every breach of the limits of the Constitution is justified to 'protect' us from ourselves. What a mockery of justice.
