Basically she says that a few years ago she started a list of things that need to happen for a “democratic” country to turn into a dictatorship, and she says that every one of those have happened and with the whole october 1st troops on mainland thing etc, bush now has his own army and may be preparing to declare martial law at some point before the next presidency and stay in office. she urges District attorneys to grow a pair and go arrest these traitorous criminals which i agree but we all know will never happen.
A little Freudian slip there? You have to do everything you can to oppress it?
Nurenburg Trials: You’re looking at all the yes men, and that is simply because all the no men are dead.
We got around to the subject of war again and I said that, contrary to his attitude, I did not think that the common people are very thankful for leaders who bring them war and destruction.
“Why, of course, the people don’t want war,” Goering shrugged. “Why would some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best that he can get out of it is to come back to his farm in one piece. Naturally, the common people don’t want war; neither in Russia nor in England nor in America, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy or a fascist dictatorship or a Parliament or a Communist dictatorship.”
“There is one difference,” I pointed out. “In a democracy the people have some say in the matter through their elected representatives, and in the United States only Congress can declare wars.”
“Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country.”

Naomi is a shill! Former advisor to Al Gore? Now she is calling for an violent uprising against government? I pity people who fall for this type of rhetoric. It is a sad state of commentary. Her book; Give me liberty calls for revolution. I hope you’re not on the list that she is assisting them in making. This is exactly what they want to know. A fact finding mission; Who is willing to engage the government in violence.
Wait a minute…….. Naomi is a shill and it’s her plan to incite people to revolt, thereby getting them on some sort of government list? If we come to the point where we have political dissidents being put on government lists, then isn’t that a reason to revolt? Seems like the reasons being used to justify revolution today are just as good as that old “taxation without representation” thing, which seemed to work pretty well last time.
She says the military oath has been changed from to defend to constitution… but it hasnt been changed. there is some controversy about rumsfield swearing in guantanamo bay guards by saying god instead of constitution, but the military’s oath itself has not changed.
