This Affects Us All

Homeland Security or Hopeless Insecurity?

This affects us all. The Department of Homeland Security now plans to block access to public federal buildings to any American citizens who do not have RealID. This is a blatant attempt to force states to implement RealID or have their citizens blocked from access to their own government.

DHS is really starting to throw it’s weight around, and they’re doing so in blatant defiance of federal law. As of January 31st they are mandating additional documentation for people on both sides of the Canadian border to be able to cross. This is causing a huge slowdown at the border crossings and has both Schumer and Leahy beside themselves with rage – not that you’d know it from what’s getting done about it.

Like a cornered rat, the Bush administration is becoming vicious and blindly moving ahead with it’s fascist agenda against the clear will of the American people. We need to push even harder for impeachment. The impeachment movement is picking up steam as more and more people become aware of the implications of retroactive immunity and warrantless wiretapping that the GOP are trying to legislate into the Protect America Act. That’s one of the reasons they’re doing this.

Anyone who fails to see the historical parallels between Blackwater and the Nazi SS, or the Department of Homeland Security and the Gestapo, needs a serious reality check.

    I do not hear the “major” candidates saying they will work to abolish these dangerous and repressive measures, any more than I hear them say they will work to revoke the Patriot Act and the Military Commission Act, dismantle Homeland Security and take other actions to restore our freedoms and our democracy.

    It is not too late to impeach Bush and Cheney and make it clear that we are a country which respects its own laws, its own Constitution, and its own people.
