First Amendment, Inc.: A Wholly-Owned Subsidiary of the State

• Lew Rockwell blog
Just when we might have thought that our society could not descend further down the rabbit hole comes news that the City of Los Angeles is offering a deal to the "Occupy LA" protesters who await trial for having dared to exercise their First Amendment rights to free speech and peaceable assembly. If these potential defendants will just cough up $355 each and agree to attend a class in "free speech" conducted by a private organization, they can avoid a trial that could result in heavy fines or imprisonment.

"...one of those people will be the one..." ? As long as people wait for "the one" to save them society will be their own worst enemy. As long as any culture believes that being ruled is better than being free, they will suffer. As long as humanity believes that any elite can enjoy a monopoly on force and be limited, they will be sanctioning their own victimization. It makes no difference how the elite comes to be, e.g., vote, divine right, birth right, or violence. The elite will still rule, and the ruled will still be slaves, i.e., government governs with deadly force for its own benefit, not yours.

2012 is going to be an exciting year. 2012 is going to be an horrible time for all people worldwide. 2012 is going to be a year where those that have fought for the rights granted through our Bill Of Right's will become daily news events because they are not going to take it any longer of those things this out of control government is forcing on the public. 2012 will be the end of the political career of president O because that same public will be seeing him for what he is. - I won't name call him anything. That has been done by thousands of others, so just take your pick of any one of those names to call him at this time. - 2012, an exciting year? Only because what we all have been waiting for will finally come to the forefront and all of those people that have stood on the sidelines doing nothing, all of those that have called the truthers all types of names are all going to have to make a decision about what they are going to do about what is coming this way in 2012. I can't say what that could be, but it is not going to be easy for anyone that is not government connected. Those in government have already covered their bases for that time when the SHTF. The rest of us will be left to ourselves and as far as that goes, we are not connected with each other, so it will be very ugly to say the least. S 1867 and the opening of those FEMA camps are not going to be set on the side lines for another time. 2012 is that year the entire world has been warned about. Let's not let president O have his way for another four years or for that matter our permeate president/dictator. We already know that the world is going into a deeper conflict then anything that has happened in the last centuries wars. Let's just make sure that until our own end comes, that we tell others what must be done to salvage the world. Just maybe when we are gone, one of those people will be that one to make the changes needed on planet earth that will bring an end to all of the conflict.
