Seizing the Rights

Beware the leader who bangs the drums of war in order to whip the citizenry into a patriotic fervor, for patriotism is indeed a double-edged sword. It both emboldens the blood, just as it narrows the mind. And when the drums of war have reached a fever pitch and the blood boils with hate and the mind has closed, the leader will have no need in seizing the rights of the citizenry. Rather, the citizenry, infused with fear and blinded by patriotism, will offer up all of their rights unto the leader and gladly so. How do I know? For this is what I have done. And I am Caesar."
--Julius Ceaser

That quote applies today. Since Dubya entered the White House, he has done NOTHING but "bang the drums of war" with "patriotic fervor". America -- WAKE UP!! All our RIGHTS, endowed by the creator, are being stripped of us... and we continue to allow it to happen.
