What Has Happened to Our Country?

If you want to read something truly scary check this out. When the Japanese air force attacked Pearl Harbor there was plenty to be afraid of. All the United States had to defend itself was rotting equipment left over from World War I. Yet the President told the nation, "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself".

Now we haven't had a real terrorist threat in years, nor does one seem likely to occur. Yet the government is actively encouraging us to be afraid. Why? Because if people are frightened enough they don't care if their freedoms are taken away.

It's true that we must fight terrorism wherever and whenever it occurs. But the real terrorists aren't in the Middle East. They're already here. They're our government.
