The "TEN STEPS TO FASCISM" are in place, and any crisis, at the dictator's whim, can be used to declare a national emergency, leading to martial law, and tyranny over a once free people.

INTERVIEW with Naomi Wolf, author of "Give Me Liberty: A Handbook for American Revolutionaries", indicating a coup is here in America, as of October 1, 2008, and outlines what's next for the American people, CLICK HERE http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_XgkeTanCGI
Video: TEN STEPS TO FASCISM

After we were hit on September 11 2001, we were in a state of national shock. Less than six weeks later, on October 26 2001, the USA Patriot Act was passed by a Congress that had little chance to debate it; many said that they scarcely had time to read it. We were told we were now on a "war footing"; we were in a "global war" against a "global caliphate" intending to "wipe out civilisation".

2. CREATE A GULAG
Once you have got everyone scared, the next step is to create a prison system outside the rule of law (as Bush put it, he wanted the American detention centre at Guantánamo Bay to be situated in legal "outer space") - where torture takes place.

3. DEVELOP A THUG CASTE
The years following 9/11 have proved a bonanza for America's security contractors, with the Bush administration outsourcing areas of work that traditionally fell to the US military. In the process, contracts worth hundreds of millions of dollars have been issued for security work by mercenaries at home and abroad

4. STEP UP AN INTERNAL SURVEILLANCE SYSTEM
In closed societies, this surveillance is cast as being about "national security"; the true function is to keep citizens docile and inhibit their activism and dissent.

5. HARASS CITIZENS' GROUPS
The fifth thing you do is related to step four - you infiltrate and harass citizens' groups. It can be trivial: a church in Pasadena, whose minister preached that Jesus was in favour of peace, found itself being investigated by the Internal Revenue Service, while churches that got Republicans out to vote, which is equally illegal under US tax law, have been left alone.

6. ENGAGE IN ARBITRARY DETENTION AND RELEASE
Professor Walter F Murphy is emeritus of Princeton University; he is one of the foremost constitutional scholars in the nation and author of the classic Constitutional Democracy. Murphy is also a decorated former marine, and he is not even especially politically liberal. But on March 1 this year, he was denied a boarding pass at Newark, "because I was on the Terrorist Watch list".

7. TARGET KEY INDIVIDUALS
a CIA contract worker who said in a closed blog that "waterboarding is torture" was stripped of the security clearance she needed in order to do her job

8. CONTROL THE PRESS
Josh Wolf (no relation), a blogger in San Francisco, has been put in jail for a year for refusing to turn over video of an anti-war demonstration; Homeland Security brought a criminal complaint against reporter Greg Palast, claiming he threatened "critical infrastructure" when he and a TV producer were filming victims of Hurricane Katrina in Louisiana. Palast had written a bestseller critical of the Bush administration.

9. DISSENT EQUALS TREASON
"spy" and "traitor"

10. SUSPEND THE RULE OF LAW
The John Warner Defense Authorization Act of 2007
