The United States Of America Is Dead

The United States Of America Is Dead

By A. Alexander, August 4th, 2007

The Constitution and Bill of Rights are dead. Incredibly, just as was the case when Rome's Senate voted to make Caesar the Emperor, the United States' Senate voted to surrender the rights and liberties of every American citizen. By a margin of 60-28, the Democratic-led Senate gave George W. Bush the unconstitutional authority to spy, without warrant, on whomever he chooses. That includes U.S. citizens, but everyone is pretending that isn't the case.

Feel free to label this analysis and the author 'extremist', or 'alarmist', or even a 'left-wing Looney-Tunes conspiracy theorist nutcase'. What you think of this analysis or of the author just doesn't matter. It won't change the fact that the Constitution and Bill of Rights are dead. And, here is the thing most Americans don't understand: without a Constitution, there is no United States of America ... America you see, is the Constitution and the Constitution is America. Without the one, the other doesn't exist.

Kick and scream all you want. It's too late - the game is over, the "good guys" lost. Oh, it'll take awhile before you and most Americans realize it, but the Constitution and Bill of Rights aren't endangered, or threatened, or under attack ... both are all already dead.

If you shoot a deer in the heart, before it keels over, it will run approximately one hundred yards. It takes a little while for the body and brain to realize that the heart is dead. It'll be like that in America, too. It'll take awhile before people realize that the Constitution and Bill of Rights have died.

The Senate's cowardly and treasonous act of giving the Executive Branch the legal authority to spy without warrant wasn't the start of the assault; it was merely the death blow. The real push to eviscerate the Constitution and Bill of Rights began in earnest after 9/11. The FBI can enter your house without a warrant and without your permission, do you know that? The government can read your postal mail without your permission, do you realize that? The National Security Agency can read your e-mail and listen to your private phone conversations, are you aware of that?

Maybe someday you'll decide that you've had enough. Maybe you'll decide to do something about it. Maybe you'll decide to stand for election on a promise to restore the Constitution. Maybe you'll have forgotten that when you were 20 years old and your girlfriend was gone for the summer, that you two shared intimate moments on the phone. Maybe you'll forget, but they won't and 30 years later, as you embark upon your crusade to finally try and do something about the fascist state of affairs, they'll have not forgotten and they'll play your intimate conversation for the world to hear.

The Constitution and Bill of Rights are dead. You just don't know it yet, because the signal from the bullet riddled heart hasn't reached the body and the brain - but it will, soon.

The United States of America is dead.

And DiFi, my Senator, is one of the one's who turned the tide on the vote. Such a worthless tool she's become. I am shamed.
