Today, Greenwald made it known his partner was detained in the UK for no real reason beyond intimidation. If you remember the recent days of Occupy in America, then you know the UK is not doing anything new. Once again my complaint lies not with those enforcing the laws given to them but with the people who allow such legislation to be crafted in the first place. It is time we take voting more seriously in America. If we don't we will have a return to the days of Europe prior to 1776. We have rights in this country that must not be abridge. It should not take someone "leaking" declassified information for us to wake the fuck up.
There is no reason for Americans to be this uninformed. I remember as a child having to fight at the local library for a news paper or encyclopedia. We had a true desire to be informed in the MS backwoods. Why has that desire faded? When we fail to be informed and then vote in an uninformed manner we get what we get. Look at Walker in Wisconsin having a field day with the rights of Americans.
We must stop the whining and start being active. Losing the right to own an assault weapon is not as important as my right to assemble, to freedom of the press, to no search for the hell of it....etc
