Since 9/11 our rights have been systematically dismantled piece by piece. Few in the Federal Government have opposed the blatant attack on our Constitutional rights and with the vast majority of Congressmen being politically Statist and Authoritarian there is a hard fight ahead for the forces of Liberty and the Freedom Movement. The following will shed some light on some of the most tyrannical and fascist laws recently passed. God save the Republic.

Patriot Act ~Presented to Congress one day before voting on that allows the government access to your financial, email, medical, church, mosque, travel, and phone records with no court order. They can also search your home anytime without a warrant.

Patriot Act II ~Allows secret government arrests, the legal authority to seize your American citizenship, and the extraction of your DNA if you are deemed a “potential” terrorist. Since 9/11 the Patriot Act has been abused in numerous cases involving American citizens, including toy store owners, the homeless, owners of web sites, writers, artists, photographers, and common criminals.

NSPD 51 ~Allows the President to declare martial law, transforming the U.S. into a dictatorship with no checks and balances from the Legislative or Judicial Branches. The President could suspend elections and take complete control of every level of government. Parts of this directive are considered classified and members of Congress have been denied the right to review it.

Military Commissions Act of 2006 ~Transforms the United States of America from a free republic into a de facto dictatorship, legalizes torture, ends protection of prisoners of war by the Geneva Conventions, creates a secret committee controlled by the President that can declare anyone to be an “enemy combatant” and thereby strip away their legal rights guaranteed by the Constitution, revokes habeas corpus thereby giving the power to imprison people without trial for as long as the President likes, ends the right to an attorney, and the right to court review of one's detention and arrest.

John Warner Defense Authorization Act ~Allows the President to declare a public emergency and station troops anywhere in America and take control of state National Guards without the consent of the governor or local authorities to “suppress public disorder”. Effectively ends the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 that prohibits the military from policing the streets.
