Colin,
You have written very optimistic article. Do you really think that the United States is that far removed from those other countries? Our government has openly admitted that “fast and furious” was hatched as a scheme to attack our second amendment rights (an unarmed public). Congress has passed, and the president signed, the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which allows for the indefinite detention of American citizens, without legal representation or a trial. The Patriot Act authorizes warrantless searches and seizures. Congress just passed a bill authorizing 30,000 surveillance drones to operate over America. Our government has or is attempting to nationalize health care. Now the Congress is attempting to pass the SOPA bill (internet censorship and kill switch) by quietly inserting it into other legislation, so it can be passed without American citizens even knowing it. Our government is running a deficit in excess of a trillion dollars a year and it continues to grow at an alarming rate. I’ll ask the question again, is the America in which we currently find ourselves really that different than the rest of the world or have we just not gotten there yet?
