The similarities between methods of governance of the U.S. Government and the methods of governance described in the chilling book 1984 by George Orwell, the nom-de-plume of Eric Arthur Blair, are close enough as to be considered nonexistent. Never-ending wars with fictional enemies (pick one and add false flag operations and operations of misdirection), government interference at every level of existence, ever pervading ominous fear of government, a lack of personal rights, no free speech without fear of government reprisal, and the constant pounding of propaganda and persuasion spewing from radio, television, and the privately-owned major media to vote into office the very people that will continue this downward spiraling into a dictatorship backed up and enforced by a militarized police state. There are many more similarities; individuals ultimately own nothing, they are subject to indefinite detention, re-education, confinement, or simple death. These now legal methods and techniques of governance are in effect and are being implemented at an ever increasing rate and rate of proliferation.

The list is increasing in length. Where is Judicial Review? Where is the U.S. Congress?
These are in front of you right now... March 24, 2012... I wonder what is just around the corner?
