    Not only that, it has allowed politically connected corporations and individuals to line their pockets with trillions of our tax dollars.

    Freedoms curtailed, propaganda spread, two trillion dollars spent, and over 4,000 military personnel dead.

    That's nothing short of treason.

    I was in the office ready to go out to a job site. The office had set chairs around a television somebody had brought in. I didn’t have time to watch and I had a job to do.

    During a 1993 Senate speech, then-Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) said, “no sane country” would incentivize illegal immigration by granting birthright citizenship.

    Exactly. 911 made clear that what had to be done was surveil Americans 24/7 to remain vigilant against foreign terrists, thus opening a new era of fear and distrust well suited for high tech "solutions".
