Angry Power of the people

Before you disregard this entirely, please at least consider the words of Harry Brown. Take what you like and leave the rest. The point is made, even if it is about the Martha Steward case.

This has been on my mind for ages. When will the American people (as a whole, no finger pointing) STOP being afraid of their government and remind themselves that WE are the PEOPLE and we have the authority to exercise our rights and the powers that are associated with them?? Including telling the government where they can get off the bus if they screw up.

After all there are plenty of people whom have the power to do things, but perhaps fall short on the reason of having the authority to use that power.

We need a reform something awful. I fear we will quickly become a totalitarian nation, maybe even spanning our alleged "power" all over the world.

I know you can say, toast is just another paranoid conspiracy theorist... but I detest! "Allow me to retort!" (lol, thanks Samuel Jackson)

There is LOTS of evidence which substantiates it. Just look at your traffic lights, notice the lovely little cameras? What about your privacy on the internet, there have been many higher ups whom have said "Privacy is dead, get over it". Screw that.

Not to mention that all it takes is the sneaking suspicion you might do something and then they can red flag you. Just cause my arse. We all know that most of the time when things really go down that they are all up in someone's business, regardless if they had a legal right to do so. And they get away with it.

Cop harass children, beat on women, judges get tempermental from dealing with all the bs and just throw people in jail for the most minor infraction. No, not all cops or all judges and that's just the tip of the iceburg. It goes deeper, there are cover-ups, human rights violated every day... and your hard earned tax dollars being squandered while you suffer. Even if you are well to do financially, more money = more problems. Look at poor Martha Stewart... they hung her out to dry! She is quoted in an article on CNN's website stating:

"Martha Stewart invoked the name of Nelson Mandela, South Africa's persecuted anti-apartheid hero, saying "many, many good people have gone to prison."

Harry Brown, a Libertarian writer said it better than I ever could please, ignore all I have to say if you want but this man, said it all:

"The Martha Stewart guilty verdict is more than troubling. It is an outrage.

The very case itself typifies today's government an entity that is free to intrude in any area of your life, free to make up the rules as it goes along, free to allow prosecutors to make names for themselves in high-profile cases without facing any personal consequences, no matter what harm they do.

Let me make it clear that I don't know Martha Stewart, I've never seen her TV show, and I've never read any of her books or magazines. I don't know what kind of person she is, and I don't care. But I care deeply about the kind of country America has turned into one in which there is no firm rule of law and anyone can be prosecuted at any time for any kind of offense that the government wants to invent"

And, the more screwed up the system gets, the more they try to squeeze the money and life out of each and every one of us. They want US to fix it but we elect them to do that job. It's about time they start doing it.

The system is defunct. Anyone have any ideas about how to give power back to the people and to keep corrupt individuals from exploiting the system, giving them things to hide behind when they screw up while we sit in jail for farting in the wrong direction?

Sorry, I know it's a bit rantish but I'm sick of it. I'm sick of seeing people lay down and take it. I say if they want to anally rape us, then I say we give them a reach around and rip their balls off.
