Escalating Tyranny in America
America is a rogue police state.
by Stephen Lendman
America's no democracy. It wasn't established to be one. It never was and isn't now.
Latter day framers today would be called a Wall Street crowd. They included money-lenders, investors, speculators, merchants, politicians, planters, and lawyers. High-mindedness wasn't on their agenda.
They wanted America run by people who owned it. They made sure it turned out that way.
Wheeler-dealer government is policy. The "supreme law of the land" is whatever presidents and sitting governments say.
Wealth and power alone mattered. It's more than ever true today. Popular interests are entirely excluded. Government of, by, and for the people never existed and doesn't now.
