A recent Gallop poll asked if the president can target US citizens for assassination without due process on US soil. 88% of the respondents (all Americans) said, “Sure it’s fine with me if the president wants to murder me with a drone.”
After all, the question was not “Can the president target US citizens for assassination without due process on US soil, except for you?” No, it was a blanket killing request by the president to kill any American, including you.
What kind of lives do these Americans have that are so great that they’re pleased if the president notices them with a drone. These people are lemmings, secluding themselves in their own homes, working their same daily routine, and believing that everything is normal. They pay no attention to the gradual destruction of their rights, freedoms, or liberties, or any of the institutions like courts (the biggest joke of all) which collude with the government criminals.
They are completely unaware of the significance of the destruction of the rule of law or due process and how that affects their lives. They have been so brainwashed to believe in self-loving Amerikan exceptionalism — meaning that Amerika is not bound by the same rules as others — so torture, kidnapping, forced servitude, deportations, imprisonment without trial, assassination, renditions, and the bombing of civilians anywhere in the world is completely normal for Amerika due to its objective superiority, and wouldn’t be used against them.
What’s going to happen when the economy collapses and the dollar becomes worthless? What do you think will happen in Amerika when Amerikans lose their routines, lose their savings, lose everything including their personal and financial safety nets? That already happened in new Orleans after hurricane Katrina, didn’t it? Let’s look at that real-life example and see if we can figure out how being blissfully ignorant is going to help you when America becomes a gigantic, post-hurricane-Katrina Superdome.
Americans will be sitting in their homes with nothing to eat since the grocery store shelves were completely empty within three days and with no or little potable water; afraid to leave their homes to be murdered by the military or the police or vigilante groups foraging for food and water. And all the while these Americans will be waiting for the government to come rescue them, just like the helpless in the New Orleans Superdome. Six days after hurricane Katrina conditions in the Superdome were intolerable, people were dying from dehydration, and the helpless were still waiting for the government to act.
Most Americans cannot possibly fathom an America where the economy has collapsed, the dollar is valueless, and food is so expensive that it can’t be had by the majority of the populace. They can’t imagine any situation that would require the deployment of military soldiers into their towns and cities. None of them realize that the President himself is now creating kill lists and justifications for why American citizens can be targeted by military drone strikes without charge or trial. The whole world will be turned upside down and devolve into violence and bloodshed. The government knows this. Homeland Security knows this. The military knows this. Any student of history knows this. We are now being desensitized to the response should it ever come to pass.
