Re: “Manufacturing Fear

I am a Constitutionalist, I resent being called a terrorist, I respect the law of the land, it is time our law enforcement do the same, as they have pledged to do. I have these rights as specified in Amendment 1 of the Constitution for the United States of America "CONGRESS SHALL MAKE NO LAW respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. The supreme court backs this up with several cases but this one comes to mind: Marbury v. Madison 5 U.S. 137 (1803) states that "a law repugnant to the constitution IS VOID. . . .” and“in declaring what shall be the SUPREME law of the land, the CONSTITUTION itself is first mentioned; and not the laws of the United States generally, but those only which shall be made in PURSUANCE of the constitution, have that rank.”
What is Terrorism? As per Merriam Webster
Terror
: a very strong feeling of fear
: something that causes very strong feelings of fear : something that is terrifying
: violence that is committed by a person, group, OR GOVERNMENT in order to frighten people and achieve a political goal
Terrorism;
: the use of violent acts to frighten the people in an area as a way of trying to achieve a political goal,
: the systematic use of terror especially as a means of coercion.
Are not the Patriot act, and the militarization of our police forces the epitome of that definition. The Patriot act gives the government the authority to arrest and detain anyone, anywhere, for any reason, for an unspecified amount of time, without due process. The Military gear afforded the police forces of our country are the envy of many nations standing army's, and that is TERRIFYING. In the interest of equal representation please publish the preceding statement.
