Those who refuse to buy what the government orders them to buy will be economically punished or even imprisoned in "debtors prisons." This is the new America, where the government can now order you how to spend the ever-shrinking portion of your income that they didn't already confiscate in taxes.
Free Speech is routinely censored in America
Not to leave the First Amendment untouched, America's current tyrannical government also strongly censors free speech. Remember all the people who were arrested for slow-dancing at the Jefferson Memorial?
Or how about the U.S. government's arrest and imprisonment of nutritional supplement manufacturers who tell the truth about the health benefits of their products on their own websites?
On top of that, we now have "free speech zones" where you're limited to protesting off-camera and out of the way of any important event. Plus, the federal government is actively raiding and taking down websites that merely link to other websites where you can download movies or pay-per-view events. This is being done without any warrant, any trial, or any due process whatsoever.
Free Speech is under assault, and it doesn't matter whether your speech is on the left, the right or the middle -- if it questions the government's illegal actions or policies in any way, you will be targeted for censorship.
To top it all off, President Obama is now engaged in an illegal war against Libya, and the man is so stupendously arrogant that he says his actions don't even need to be legal under the Constitution at all!
"There may be a time in which there was a serious question as to whether the War Powers Resolution was constitutional," Obama said in a recent press conference. "I don't have to get to the question."
In other words, Obama thinks he's the king, just like the King of England who we fought a revolution against in the 18th century. Obama thinks he does not need to follow ANY law, thereby violating the very tenant of our Republic, which is a nation based on laws that apply to everyone, including those who govern.
When the sitting President of the USA declares that his actions don't even need to be reviewed for their constitutionality, the republic is lost. Doesn't this guy even remember that he SWORE to uphold and defend the Constitution during his initial swearing in as President?
The Patriot Act -- George Bush's gift to freedom
Any discussion of freedom in America must, of course, include a reference to the Patriot Act, signed into law by President Bush in the aftermath of the false-flag 9/11 attack. The Patriot Act is to freedom what napalm is to peace.
Specifically, the Patriot Act revokes all the rights enumerated by the Bill of Rights for any person the government accuses of being involved in "terrorism" of any kind, which can include protests by animal rights advocates or even just lighting farts with your fraternity buddies while sitting on an airplane.
The Patriot Act takes America back to the days of the King's rule where only the King is granted the right to rule (by God, no less) and yet he himself is subject to no rule (no law). This is the situation in America today, where government agents such as the FDA, DEA, TSA, FCC, FTC, EPA, USDA and many others routinely engage in criminal acts against the People, against nature and against common law. Yet they continue to get away with these crimes because they answer to no law (and the People never hold them accountable).
