      The American Third World Totalitarianism

      America is heading head long into a third world totalitarian state. If our coming complete economic collapse was not one thing, now our government is cracking down on our first amendment rights. As the people protest the power of banks in our nation, militarized police show up with grenade launchers filled with tear gas canister, pepper spray that could bring down a horse, and guns with rubber bullets that can do more than leave a bruise.

      On top of that, the government is now trying to use the military to police our nation, calling America part of the battlefield. This "defense" bill will also greatly increase the military's power to hold people indefinitely without trial. 

      Watch this video and read this article for more information then please go to my Get Involved page to contact your senator over this bill. I will create a post with updates.
