Subject: [ Freedom to Fascism Redux: A Timeline of Recent American History ]
“We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.” – Abraham Lincoln
Dear Wayne Bowen,
If you had read this first…
…then perhaps you would not have written this:
Let me give you a timeline for the last few years of American history:
FREEDOM > PNAC > 9/11 > AUMF > PATRIOT ACT > CITIZENS UNITED > NDAA > SOPA PIPA > EEA > FASCISM
Here is what all that means…
FREEDOM: What the United States Constitution and Bill of Rights once guaranteed to all American Citizens.
PNAC: Our wars for oil and profit were planned LONG before 9/11, but an excuse was needed to justify them.
[ Note: This letter was dated January 26 1998 and the last paragraph reads “We urge you to act decisively. If you act now to end the threat of weapons of mass destruction against the U.S. or its allies, you will be acting in the most fundamental national security interests of the country. If we accept a course of weakness and drift, we put our interests and our future at risk.” ]
9/11: The excuse that was needed to sacrifice lives and liberties while corporations raided our treasury.
AUMF: Authorization for Use of Military Force (Public Law 107-40), a “war against terror” carte blanche.
PATRIOT ACT: 68,000 words worth of Orwellian “1984” legislation supposedly drafted and passed in six weeks.
CITIZENS UNITED: The U.S. Supreme Court decision that gave corporations a legal way to buy U.S. elections.
NDAA: The National Defense Authorization Act of 2012, which codifies indefinite detention without trial.
SOPA/PIPA: The proposed Stop Online Piracy Act and Protect IP Act, euphemisms for Internet censorship.
EEA: The proposed Enemy Expatriation Act, under which dissent could result in revocation of citizenship.
FASCISM: Rule by corporate elite we can only reverse by waking up 312 million mostly clueless Americans.
NO MORE LEFT. NO MORE RIGHT. TIME TO UNITE. STAND AND FIGHT!
