Before anything else, let's make a clear distinction between America and its government.

America, its people, the vast continent plus Alaska and Hawaii are not the government.

The "government", and as we'll see momentarily includes its corporate/military/political abetting partners, is a separate entity and now something almost completely unto itself. The people are superfluous, necessary foils to that government to provide a fig leaf of legitimacy and the impression it's a republic, a constitutional democracy and a government of, by and for the people.

Nothing can be further from the truth. A republic may have been the original intent of the framers, but as Benjamin Franklin famously said, "A republic, if you can keep it".

To say the least that "republic" has been lost. As to the how, when and why of that loss is the focus here, although admittedly, hardly a comprehensive compilation of all government actions.

If one looks honestly at our "government's" actions particularly since the end of W.W.II, the cold war with the Soviet Union and now what has happened since 9/11 and the global war on terrorism, it is not a stretch to see the sinister nature of many government actions and realize there's been a transformation which has taken place that is anything but positive.
