If you go outside of your house for long enough you will see the oppressive police state all around you. I live in Salem, a small town in comparison to most larger cities and I can see the police state. Recently I went downtown on my bike to one of the local bike shops. I was obeying all of the oppressive laws that pertain to the downtown sector, when I went maybe 20 feet onto the sidewalk where the bike shop was I noticed a pig on a bike, ON THE SIDEWALK! As soon as he saw me he biked over to me on the sidewalk for about 2 blocks and demanded to see all of our Id's. I asked him what we were being stopped for and he told us that we were riding our bikes on the sidewalk. So I said to him, "um weren't you just on the sidewalk also. He said "well I'm law enforcement and I'm not bound by that law." He rambled on some more about how he took special training so he could ride on the sidewalk. So I asked to see his certificate of training and he started to stumble over his words. I said that I also had special training. He took our Id's and proceeded to write tickets and threaten to confiscate our bikes if he caught us doing again. Now I got angry and started to talk to the oppressor about my rights and equality under the law. I said "if you get to ride on the sidewalk so do I." He just laughed and said this wasn't 1776.
I also go to Portland somewhat often for protests and gun shopping, or to take my wife and kids for a change of scenery. I went to a gun show and was shocked to see how many pigs there were around that place. (talk about terrorism) So I went to one of the pigs who was trying to stare me down, and asked him what they were doing here. He said "just watching" so I said to him "are you here to intimidate people from buying legal items? He replied "boy you better watch what you say or I'll kick the shit out of you" So I said "well get the fuck out of your car and try it bitch." Using my freedom of speech pissed him off and he got out of his car and ruffed me up a little, checked my Id, ran my name and told me to watch my back. (like some gangster) This incident made me arm up at the gun show more than I was planning to protect myself against future tyranny.
Going to downtown Portland looks more like Hitler's Germany. There were so many oppressors, seemed like two or three every block, just waiting for someone to "mess up" so they could throw them against the wall and search them. Most people just kept their heads down in fear, didn't even look at the pigs. The last protest I went to, massive police presence to intimidate people from exercising their constitutional rights. If you watch even the mainstream news you will see in EVERY major city, it is pretty much martial law, just not declared. This type of police state has been noticeably creeping into American cities for about 60 years now. Most people don't even notice what's going on. I attached some photos so people can judge for themselves.
Since the government sponsored attacks of 9/11 and then blaming Al-Qaeda, the same organization the the CIA created to fight the soviets in Afghanistan, our rights have been taken away at an alarming rate. The same organization that Bush and cronies have old ties to. Not to put all the blame on Bush, Clinton and predecessors also accelerated the police state, just not as fast as Bush. We must act accordingly to the constitution and throw out all leaders (by all means necessary) of both parties who are bought and paid for by the same global elites that orchestrated 9/11 solely to set up a police state not only in America, but most of the world. The repiglicans and demoncraps won't save us. More proof is coming out daily about govt. officials being corrupt and breaking the law, on both sides of the isle.
There really is no clear solution to overthrow leaders and keep the US territory the same, as there will be factions fighting for power all over the country. America would be carved up into several small countries. I have noticed though, that countries with empire like status seem to be the worst. There are small countries that have dictators, it is also the job of those citizens to overthrow their leaders as well.
