If The US Becomes A “Police State” What Freedom Do You Have Left?
Common Sense & Politics— What is a police state is one in which the government exercises rigid and repressive controls over the social, economic and political life of the population. A police state typically exhibits elements of totalitarianism and social control, and there is usually little or no distinction between the law and the exercise of political power by the executive. –Wikipedia.org
Our beloved United States of America is now a police state officially! We’re living in a fascist state in which absolute power is concentrated in a capitalist criminal cabal that uses military and police power to dominate the people mentally and physically.
For that matter, the passage of a law that shreds the founding principles of the American republic has raised barely a murmur of concern from the corporate-controlled mass media. They have no intention of making this a matter of public debate. For millions of American working people, however, the action is of the gravest importance.

He has exercised this supposed right in the extra-judicial execution of Anwar al-Awlaki and others.
The explosive development of the Occupy Wall Street protests and the nationally coordinated campaign of police repression used to disperse them are only a precursor of far greater social struggles to come.

The ruling oligarchy knows that its policies of making the working class pay for the crisis of the profit system must give rise to revolutionary social opposition and it is preparing accordingly. The working class must do likewise, mobilizing its independent political power in struggle against the threats of police state dictatorship and the capitalist profit system from which they arise.
As Texas Congressman Ron Paul stated, “We must restore the freedom and respect for liberty that once made American the greatest nation in human history.”
The American people must know that “Habeas corpus is the greatest protection Americans have against a police state. Habeas corpus ensures that Americans can only be detained by law. They must be charged with offenses, given access to attorneys, and brought to trial. Habeas corpus prevents the despotic practice of picking up a person and holding him indefinitely.” -AntiWar.
