How did it happen that our rights and liberties were so easy taken from us? Declare a War on a word that has no army, no headquarters, a scattered unseen organization and call it Terror. Governments with unseen policing system can declare you guilty with no due process of the law. Our home and all our possessions can be taken away by a Banking System backed by corrupt Governments, IMF and WTO.
Phone calls are monitored and emails read without our knowledge. Presidents can be awarded the highest office by a Court rather than the people. We are told to take the lowest paying degrading job while the Corporations pollute our air, water and land daily.
Our Governments give Billions of Dollars to corporate welfare bums and forget those people less fortunate. Wars are declared on Countries with Corporations waiting to benefit while sons and daughters are sent to die. Are we willing to stand up and say enough is enough?
