The Freeman's Burden:

To defend the principles of human liberty; to educate; to be vigilant against the ever expanding power of the state.

All we have to fear...is everything

The United States, Canada and Great Britain began the largest terror response drill in history today. Of course the real point is to keep everyone so afraid of the great Al Qaeda bogeyman that we the people continue to cede away our liberties. I will be shocked if, when the analysis of today's drill is released, is says anything other than that we are still underprepared, the government needs more money and more of our freedom must be sacrificed in order to keep us safe.

"Of course the people don't want war. But after all, it's the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it's always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it's a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger."

Can't argue with that. Terrorist drills are just a distraction from the real threat, activist judges!!
