A quote from a post by T.L. Davis at Christian Mercenary:
“While police departments become more militarized with tanks, armor and drones and federal government bureaucracies arm themselves with billions of rounds of ammunition (including the Post Office), it leaves the average American with a sense of dread.
It can not be for self-defense; no one is attacking them. There is no great crime-wave and where crime is worse; more prolific, the cops don’t seem to go. To be honest, with all of the increased firepower, ammunition and drones at their disposal it is difficult to understand how they have not had any impact on the crime rate at all.
Perhaps it is because these new tactics and powers are not being used to fight crime, but to be prepared to fight us: the American citizen. That is the dread one feels when they see black cars with heavily-armed men in sunglasses roll down the street. It is an image of gut revulsion, because it is so far from the Andy Griffith image of the 1960’s when per capita crime was much higher.
It must be in preparation for some civil unrest to come, something they know that we don’t. Yet, to be honest, apart from the infuriatingly law-abiding Tea Party, there has been no significant unrest after the government took trillions of dollars of private capital out of the economic system and gave it to bankers and favored state governments. If the government can do that on the immense scale that it has without riots, it is hard to imagine a situation under which all of these police powers and equipment might be necessary.
The prospect of terrorism? Give me a break. The only terrorists that exist to any degree in America are the terrorists they have created by re-defining veterans and Christians as terrorists.”
Christan – check.
Veteran – check.
Ron Paul supporter – check.
Homeshooler – check.
Anti-GMO – check.
I guess my mama raised a terrorist. I hope she is proud.
On a side note, if you click to get the MIAC report and look at this page, you see that a stamp issued by the US Postal Service in 2000 is a terrorist symbol.
