Once U.S. Government completes building its multi-billion dollar Surveillance State that will spy on Americans' every move, it is problematic some in government and the private security complex that (profit) selling the government domestic spying systems, will want to insure the Surveillance Police State is made permanent. That can only be achieved by revoking U.S. Citizens' right to Vote; Americans could not successfully resist politically or otherwise. Congress has approved thousands of police drones to spy on Americans'. The coming Surveillance Police State will have the ability to read your private email, record your phone calls, track your Internet Activity, spy inside your house, literally follow your every move. TSA will search Americans using any mode of transportation. The Military can now use The National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 to arrest and indefinitely detain anyone on U.S. Soil without evidence on the premise he or she supported hostilities or terrorism or is a Belligerent.
With the coming U.S. Police Surveillance State expect higher unemployment, the economy to stagnate and huge increases in federal taxes to support the Surveillance State. Federal employees will fare better, paid higher salaries and more benefits compared to most working Americans spied on by Government. Historically Citizens that fear a Government Police Surveillance State won't risk investing—in homes, income producing property or buy a business that a police state government can confiscate (without due process). For example U.S. Government can use the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 to charge without evidence that all of a Citizen's assets are subject to civil government forfeiture under the USA Patriot Act charging a Citizen supported an undefined terrorist act or hostilities, or charge without providing evidence a Citizen's tenant or visitor committed a crime or violation that made their real property or business subject to government forfeiture.
Should a Total Surveillance State take over America, generally a Total Police State follows: expect most tangible assets owned by Americans will depreciate, become difficult to sell. Citizens that fear Government, generally buy only products that are absolutely necessary. Historically expect persons inside or connected to Federal Government that are protected, don't have to fear government/police confiscating their property, will purchase Americans' real and personal property for next to nothing. That happened in Nazi Germany after Hitler started enforcing laws he got passed similar to The National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 that Pres. Obama signed. It appears problematic at some point, Americans won't be allowed employment or the right to operate a business unless approved by Homeland Security; and Homeland will prohibit without explanation Americans using pubic and private transportation without Government approval.
According to news reports, it appears U.S. Government may have its Total Surveillance Police State mostly completed by the end of 2014.
