And you will laugh and I will cry,

Happiness I cannot feel

And love to me is so unreal."

"Paranoid," Paranoid

Black Sabbath, 1971

A win by Romney-Ryan would almost certainly insure the end to the right of privacy for the majority of the American People. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia has already stated that the U.S. Constitution does not guarantee a "right of privacy." Justice Scalia knows that our right of privacy is the basis for a number of legal precedents that he finds reprehensible, including abortion, contraception, women's and gay rights, medicinal marijuana laws, and the Supreme Court decision that " when police execute a search warrant, they are required to knock and announce their arrival prior to entering a house, except in those cases where law enforcement has a 'reasonable' expectation of the' imminent threat of violence or destruction of evidence." Justice Scalia was joined, in whole or in part, by Justices Roberts, Thomas, Kennedy, and Sotomayor in the most recent test of privacy decided by the Supreme Court, regarding the use of a GPS tracker on the wife of a suspected drug dealer's vehicle .

The elimination of the right of privacy is a stepping stone to the emasculation of the Fourth Amendment. For those of you who slept through your high school civics class, the Fourth Amendment states:

"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."

For anyone who is reading this who is an ardent supporter of the Second Amendment: do not believe a word Scalia or any of the Reactionary Right politicians tell you about supporting the Second Amendment. Their last step in establishing their oligarchic system--probably in the guise of a religious theocracy--will be to take your guns away, using the private mercenary shock troops (such as Blackwater/Xe) that they have been creating over the last thirty years, as their preferred instruments of repression, not the American police or military. But first, the oligarchs have to neuter that pesky Fourth Amendment, before they can establish their capitalist utopia, and worker's Hell, as they attempted in Chile, Argentina, Indonesia, Poland, South Africa, Russia, etc. They have as their perfect model, believe it not, in the new market economy of the People's Republic of China. PS -- do not be surprised when the Romney and the oligarchs use the NRA membership lists to accomplish the first stage of their confiscation of your weapons.

And so as you hear these words

telling you now of my state,

I tell you to enjoy life

I wish I could but it's too late.

We are now down to the final reason I feel our nation is in the cross-hairs of a quick and certain takeover by the oligarchs if the Romney-Ryan ticket are successful in their bid for the Presidency.
