    The War Against Terror - as some of my Brit friends like to call it because it forms a useful acronym - has been a godsend for those in government with a bent toward policies that restrict, micromanage or even altogether do away with the rights and freedoms of the people.
    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.
