Every time you hear a wild rumor and it comes true, you think it can't be topped. When I heard they were spying on American citizens with high-dollar taxpayer paid for drones, I not only couldn't believe they were doing it, I couldn't fathom that we Americans would let them get away with it. I should have known, once the CIA, the FBI and law enforcement got their foot in the door, it would not stop there.Now they want to arm them. Why?
Where are American citizens marching and demonstrating and getting out of hand so bad that we need to spy on them and shoot them from the sky?Demonstrators need permits to march. They already know where they will be at. They then have the nerve to arm them with tear gas and rubber bullets and who knows what else. Again, why?
This is not Afghanistan or Iraq or Iran, this is America and we have certain inalienable rights and one is to peacefully demonstrate. Now, when you apply for a permit, they want to put protesters miles away from the action and the press. Mitt Romney is now pulling a George Bush and not letting anyone who disagrees with him into his speeches. If you don't agree with everything he says and clap when the sign comes on, they throw you out.
I'm not just blaming Romney, it is the presidents decision and his only, to fly these drones around this country and spy on American citizens. At first, they were just to fly around and help the border patrol. But, like any good junkie, give them the first shot and they will not stop until it's all gone and people are dead or hospitalized. A war veteran from Iraq has already been murdered on the ground. What do they need armed-drones in the air for? This is Big-Brother at it's worse.
It's bad enough having to worry about satellites in space that can read a license plate that they claim they never use, but now you can be walking down the street and not even know an armed drone is watching your every move. My privacy is special to me and to have it compromised by this administration, and no doubt a republican one as well, makes me sick. This has to be investigated and stopped. This really is give them an inch and they will take a fucking mile. It's in their blood.
