I had threatened numerous times to renounce my citizenship just as soon as I could come up the money and find a country I could become a citizen of with the least amount of financial output or waiting periods. This was often met with incredulous looks and speeches on America being the only free country there is. At these times I chuckled at the ignorance and shook my head. I’m still shaking my head now that I live in Sweden. You’ve been hoodwinked. You can’t even say something as simple as Bush is outta control in front of the wrong people without risk of the police showing up 30 minutes later to search, question and harass you for being Un-American. Think I’m kidding? Go grab the DVD Unconstitutional: The War on Our Civil Liberties.
You may want to close your eyes and pretend that things like the above are not happening everyday in your very own neighborhood, but I assure you that they are. The attack on the Twin Towers gave Bush and Ashcroft just the fear factor they needed to push through exactly what they wanted: full control. They could give a rat’s ass about the constitution, and this documentary lays all of it out here for you to see:
Over a thousand people were rounded up without cause under the Patriot Act… an act that was pushed through shadily at best. Oh, both sides had drafted a bill, which they both agreed upon unanimously. Then at like 3:45AM prior to the official vote, it was changed by Bush and his few trusted buddies. Congress was then told it was imperative they just go ahead and vote on it and worry about the particulars later. It was an emergency. Voting no would be unpatriotic. None of them were given a chance to read the new version prior to voting. The changes made were fundamental and dangerous. The American public was purposely kept in the dark about it.
Do you believe that every person who has been arrested without cause is an immigrant? Think again. This documentary will show you that American Citizens have been picked up and held in solitary confinement for months. MONTHS. Without a charge ever being made. Without being allowed to contact family. Without being allowed to contact a lawyer. The 4th Amendment no longer exists in the good ol US of A.
Were you aware that they could come search your house and take whatever they want and not even notify you that they did so? Well they can, and they do. You can go on thinking that you’ve been burglarized for 3 months or more before finally being told that it was an agency of the government that took your stuff, and they need to prove nothing to do so. A good deal of that Patriot Act has absolutely nothing to do with terrorism. It has to do with Bush’s buddies targeting anyone who looks at him wrong. It has to do with arresting folks who say anything derogatory about Bush or anyone who is in Bush’s good graces. This is not alarmist propaganda here. This is fact. Members of both the major parties are interviewed on this DVD and horrified about it.
Nonny De La Pena directed this documentary and lays it all right on the line. Watch it. Listen to it. This isn’t being made up as they go along. You already know (or should know) that peaceful anti-Bush demonstrators are not allowed to gather along the president’s route to anywhere, only supporters. But do you know that cops infiltrate these peaceful groups and try to get them to become violent so they can arrest them? Well, they do. One even suggested to one such group that they plant bombs, or at least packages that look like bombs, on bridges and so forth. The group of course refused and were disgusted… but what kind of crap is that? In the middle of another peaceful gathering, two plain-clothes cops wander among the crown and start spraying mace at everyone trying to create a riot and pandemonium. Hey, I couldn’t make this stuff up, guys… it’s all caught on film.
If you are one of the folks who prefer to swallow the lies, you need to watch this. If you believe in the constitution, you need to see this. If you truly think America is the land of the free and that the current administration is just trying to protect us, you really need to see this. Five full stars for Unconstitutional. I hope it pisses you off.
(I already know I’m on the list, they can add this review to it and kiss my ass.)
