If we lose freedom here, there is no place to escape to. This is the last stand on earth. Reagan

What is disgusting is that when Reagan said “If we lose freedom here, there is no place to escape to. This is the last stand on earth.”, the US was #1 in freedom around the world, last year the US was #17th! (Or 18th depending on which you follow). A very sad state of affairs. The Founders would be disgusted.

I don’t want to live in a society that does these sort of things…”Once you go on the network, I can identify your machine. You will never be safe whatever protections you put in place.

  • ‘I do not expect to see home again’…
  • ‘I don’t want to live in a society that does these sort of things’
  • ‘I believed in Obama’s promises’
  • ‘Presidents openly lie to secure the office’
  • ‘Government has granted itself power it is not entitled to’
  • ‘Whenever we had a debate in the office on how to handle crimes, they do not defend due process – they defend decisive action. They say it is better to kick someone out of a plane than let these people have a day in court. It is an authoritarian mindset in general.’
  • ‘Once you go on the network, I can identify your machine. You will never be safe whatever protections you put in place.’
