Why “they” hate us
By Ken Hildebrand
Shortly after September 11, 2011 then President G.W. Bush told us that “they” (meaning the terrorists) hate us because of our freedom. We were told that we are hated for our economic freedom, our personal freedom of speech, our ability to own our own house and car, the ability to freely travel without restriction and so forth.
The only thing he failed to mention is who the real terrorists are, and there is a reason for that.
Soon after 9/11 on October 26, 2001, the PATRIOT Act was signed and quickly started to take away your freedoms. No warrant was needed to tap your phone or to put you under surveillance. Few people realize that it also authorized the indefinite detentions of immigrants.
Also included in the PATRIOT Act was the searches of homes or business, without the permission or even the right of the owner or the occupant of the home to know it occurred. Of course they also gained the ability to search phone, e-mail and financial records without a warrant, which can now be stored for up to five years even if you have no connections to terrorism.
Many of the provisions of the PATRIOT Act were set to sunset on December 31, 2005 but were re-authorized by Congress and signed again by President Bush in March, 2006.
Then, of course, in 2011, Congress once again voted to extend the Act and then on May 26, 2011 it was signed by President Barack Obama. In doing this, he extended three key provisions for four years including the widespread wiretapping, searching of business records and the monitoring of supposed “lone wolves,” meaning people who are not linked to any terrorist groups but are suspected of activities related to terrorism.
Next was the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for fiscal year 2012 which allows the indefinite detention of Americans by the military without being charged and no legal representation. Thankfully, in May of this year, a U.S. District Judge blocked parts of the NDAA.
Now we have the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, signed into law on March 23, 2010 by President Obama, also known as Obama Care, which is just pure theft. If you don’t comply by buying health insurance you will be fined and this will be enforced by the IRS. You have no choice.
According to Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (52nd chair of the Democratic National Committee and Rep. of Florida’s 20th District), the government will no longer put up with freeloaders milking the system. People must take responsibility for themselves and pay their own way. Does she feel the same way about illegal immigrants?
Well, this is just the tip of the iceberg and I have strayed from the point. Why didn’t President Bush tell you who the real terrorists are? They are the terrorists. The politicians, bankers, insurance companies and the elites of this world are the real people who are after your freedoms.
So, be good little slaves and comply.
