The Defense Authorization Act was like a formal announcement that the Federal Government was the only authorized police force. States and locals have authority, so long as the President says so. Another dictatorial move that Bush passed, and Obama kept, or expanded. How to acclimate Americans then? speacial events, disasters, ect…use Homeland Security, FEMA, and National Guards to “keep order”. Thats ripe. The 20th Century taught us that Governments have the ability to kill over 100,000,000 people in a century. So we begin the 21st Century by enabling and empowering and supporting the expansions of these powers. How far will any State go? Look at Cambodia, The USSR, Communist China, and Hitlers Germany.
Say it can’t happen here? Think again.
