Tadd Merchant: America on a downward slide

Tadd Merchant

For those still unaware, America is quickly descending into a fascist Nazi-style police state.

Witness the proliferation of spy/surveillance cameras in our supermarkets, banks, on our street intersections, highways and roads, inside of our buses and soon into our very homes. We have police conducting illegal checkpoints on our highways and interstates questioning, searching and confiscating property with no probable cause or warrants issued from motorists all across the nation. We have the TSA moving into our public ground transportation networks (in addition to our airports) willfully and maliciously violating our Fourth Amendment right to be free from unreasonable and illegal searches and seizures by government officials.

We have up to two million American citizens on a so-called “No Fly List” and plans to implement a Department of Homeland Security permission-only list for those of us who wish to travel, work or purchase firearms in America.

The United States of America has the highest per capita prison population of any nation on Earth.

This is not freedom, this is tyranny.
