U.S. Government Using Terrorism Against the American People

(note to mods-this is zerohedge, not alex jones)

We've documented that - by any measure - America is the largest sponsor of terrorism in the world.

But remember, terrorism is defined as:

The use of violence and threats to intimidate or coerce, especially for political purposes.

The American government has also been using violence and threats to intimidate and coerce the American public for political purposes.

For example, the U.S. government is doing the following things to terrorize the American public into docility and compliance:

* Labeling peaceful protest as terrorism

* Using homeland security laws to crush dissent

* Spying on all Americans

* Threatening to indefinitely detain American citizens without cause and without any due process

* Even threatening to kill any U.S. citizen on a whim

U.S. constitutional law has taught for hundreds of years that chilling the exercise of our liberties is as dangerous to freedom than directly suppressing them.

7. To lock this thread would be to agree with it, but...

"...that's just the way things are. Just be thankful that you have a job."
