Is America Becoming a Police State?

Is America Becoming a Police State?

Police State America
America is becoming a police state.

   The priorities and concerns of the average American citizen are severely fucked up.  We live in an era where the U.S military can be used against American citizens in the "homeland", and detain them indefinitely without any charges and deny them any judicial process of law. They can even kill citizens as they see fit, without any judicial ruling or oversight.  Our President sends our troops to war without any congressional declarations of war and without any vote whatsoever from congress, house or senate, exerting dictatorship like powers, circumventing constitutional authority, and bypassing American law.

 Our currency is deliberately devalued, our government bails out banks including foreign ones, government spending is at an all time record high, and our government is in debt over 15.5 trillion dollars.  Unemployment is at an all time high, and American's have sacrificed virtually all personal liberties all for the sake of "security" from "terrorists".  No resistance whatsoever was given by the American people when they watched these things happening, yet, when our government threatens to take away torrents, memes and free movies, everyone goes fucking apeshit.

The government of The United States of America is swiftly becoming a system where the state recognizes no limits to its authority and strives to regulate every aspect of public and private life wherever feasible, yet, the American people are blind to this fact, ignoring the signs, because they suffer cognitive dissonance due to a lifelong process of conditioning to the illusion that we are "free".  They cling to the false belief that the government would never do no evil to them, much like the Jewish people of 1930s Germany did.

America is rapidly becoming a police state, and we the people continue to do NOTHING.  At some point, it'll be too late to do anything about it.

"...'Is America a Police State?' My answer is: 'Maybe not yet, but it is fast approaching.'"
- Ron Paul. June 27, 2002
