The Freeman's Burden:

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

State Department seeks to cover-up failure of War on Terrorism

When the government fears the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. - Thomas Jefferson
The US State Department has decided not to include new numbers indicating a three-fold INCREASE in the number of global terror attacks over the last year in its annual report to Congress. Well here we are folks. The War on Poverty, the War on Drugs, and now, the War on Terror...all self-perpetuating failures that have cost the American people trillions of dollars, millions of lives and the Constitutional foundation of our liberty. The government keeps us scared and takes away our rights and our income. For what? So it can justify continuously increasing its authority to regulate and control us, interfere in the actions of foreign nations and promote the interests of a class of corporations and bureaucracies on whom it subsists? How bad will it have to get? How many lies? How many lives before we, as Americans, will be willing to stand up and say, "Enough!" and begin taking back our precious right to self-government and personal liberty? The latest report on Iraqi weapons indicates that there is no evidence of weapons material being transferred to Syria either before or after US action commenced. The response of the American people who supported taking over a foreign nation, killing upwards of 100,000 innocents and spending over 200 billion dollars on what has proven to be a steaming pile of complete lies...yawn. Why does it seem I am the only person pissed off about being lied to over and over and over. I supported the Iraq war when I was told they had a nuclear weapons program, they didn't. I supported the Iraq war when I was told the regime was training Al Queda, they weren't. I supported the Iraq war when I was told that they were violating the cease fire by producing WMD, they hadn't. The only justification left for this war is the idea that it is the responsibility of the United States to fix the world's problems. If this is the case, then we should invade Iran, North Korea, Zimbabwe, Belarus, Venezuela, Ivory Coast, Burma and Western Sahara just for starters. I have read the Constitution and it is pretty clear that the role of the government of the United States is to defend the life, liberty and property of the people of the several states. Period.
