|I supported the President 100%. His courage made me glad that I had voted for him. I supported my government 100%. I would have picked up my gun and went to war if they had called upon me to do so at that time. So what has changed?
What has changed is that the government has used this tragedy to broaden its authority over the American people. Of course, it is claimed to be for our own "protection". But how can they protect us when they are now giving illegal aliens' driver's licenses, rewarding them for breaking the law? How can they protect us when they refuse to seal our borders? We have troops in over 100 countries scattered across this world yet we do not have enough to patrol our own borders?
These are all things that changed my way of thinking. But perhaps the biggest event that changed my way of thinking was the passing of the Patriot Act. Then the drafting of Patriot Act 2, which the government denied, existed, then admitted existed.
These pieces of legislation are perhaps the greatest threat our country has ever encountered. I would wager bigger than even terrorism. They strike at our freedoms, they circumvent the law and violate our civil rights that have been guaranteed to us by our constitution and paid for in blood by our veterans. Why is the government watching us? We know we're not terrorist. They know we're not terrorist.
I think it is absolutely pathetic that Attorney General Ashcroft has to be sent out on a tour of America to promote the Patriot Act. If they have to send this man on tour to drum up support, it should send a clear message to our government that this legislation is not welcome.
Recently Ashcroft was on the Sean Hannity show telling listeners not to believe the "propaganda" put out by the liberals about the Patriot Act and Patriot Act 2. Sean Hannity supported Ashcroft and said that he had read Patriot Act 2 and found nothing that violated civil liberties. He also agreed with Ashcroft stating that the bad press being put out about Patriot Act 1 and Patriot Act 2 was just liberal propaganda.
Obviously Hannity did not take much time in reading the Patriot Acts. And he is most definitely in error when he makes the claim that the bad press is just liberal propaganda.
According to Gun Owners of America (www.gunowners.org) here are just a few of the civil rights violations of Patriot Act 2:
The Federal Bureau of Investigation -- which hardly shrouded itself in glory in connection the Waco and Ruby Ridge incidents -- was given broad new powers to wiretap, monitor, search, and detain "suspects" without probable cause or due process and without giving them access to attorneys
Individuals and groups which engage in or advocate civil disobedience or Second Amendment rights, including Gun Owners of America, could be classified as "foreign powers" and subject to electronic surveillance for up to a year without the approval of any court. [Section 104]
Could allow members and supporters of GOA and other organizations to be stripped of their citizenship [Section 501], arrested and held indefinitely without charges, here or abroad [Section 503-6], in secret at a secret location [Section 201], without access to an attorney or benefit of constitutional protections.
These are just a few of the violations of our Constitutional rights that the Patriot Acts violate. In other words if you are a member of any organization that criticizes the government or advocates Constitutional rights you could be stripped of your citizenship and shipped overseas and no one would know where you went, and the government would not have to tell anyone where you went either.
This situation is not getting any better either. I have long been writing about how preservation of our Southern history and fighting men like Morris Dees who call us racist because we defend our history is relevant. Here is a perfect example of what I've been talking about:
Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government lecturer Jessica Stern recently stated:
"Al Qaeda has shifted its mission, even aligning itself with neo-Nazis and white supremacists who are sympathetic to its new focus of fighting a "new world order."
This is why men like Morris Dees are so dangerous. He labels Southern Heritage supporters as racist. His "Intelligence Report" is distributed to virtually all law enforcement agencies and is taken as the Gospel truth by them. Therefore if Morris Dees labels us racist as far as the law is concerned we are. What's worse than that is that fact that even if you aren't in the Southern Heritage movement but oppose globalization you are increasingly viewed as a terrorist.
When we look at the big picture there is more to this than meets the eye. Much more. If globalization is to occur there can be no room for regional identity, heritage or culture. There can be no room for national or state sovereignty. And there can be no room for Christianity.
It is like I have said all along. Our heritage is just the first stepping stone. Sovereignty and Christianity are next. This explains why Morris Dees word is taken as the Gospel truth by law enforcement and government agencies. Mr. Dees is conducting an important service for the government in its globalization efforts. In one clean sweep he struck a huge blow against State's Rights and Christianity in Alabama.
America is increasingly becoming a socialist state. The freedom is being stripped away for the common good of the state. Punch card ballot voting systems are looked upon as obsolete. They are being replaced by computer voting machines and there is evidence to prove that these machines can be easily manipulated.
Chris Floyd of the Moscow Times recently reported that:
"The American vote-count is controlled by three major corporate players -- Diebold, ES&S, and Sequoia -- with a fourth, Science Applications International Corporation, coming on strong. These companies -- all of them hardwired into the Bushist Party power grid -- have been given billions of dollars by the Bush Regime to complete a sweeping computerization of voting machines nationwide by the 2004 election. These glitch-riddled systems -- many using "touch-screen" technology that leaves no paper trail at all -- are almost laughably open to manipulation, according to corporate whistleblowers and computer scientists at Stanford, Johns Hopkins and other universities"
Stalin once said that "Those who cast the votes decide nothing. Those who count the votes decide everything."
After the Socialist Revolution in Russia, statues of Stalin were placed everywhere. Could this explain why Lincoln's statue has been forcefully placed in Richmond Virginia? Could this be why there is now an effort to forcefully place a statue of Lincoln in Hot Springs, Arkansas? The South is realizing once again that it has a very unique and proud heritage and culture. In order for globalization to occur it must be stamped out.
For those who tell us, " Give it up the war ended 140 years ago", think about this. Once they are finished with us they are coming for you.
Clint Lacy September 25 2003
Believe it or not I've not always been what most would consider a "radical". After 9-11 I was probably one of the biggest patriots around. I wrote an article not long after the tragedy of that day describing how that day's events had effected an ordinary Missouri family.
