Are we living in a police state or a free country?
In recent years I have seen news stories that blow my mind. These range from a child being arrested for having a toy soldier holding a gun at school to a woman being brutally beaten and fined for having a brown lawn (yes a brown lawn!). Is this a free country? And the best excuse that the gov't overlords can come up with is.... wait..... "we do it for your security!" America is not based on security, it is based upon freedoms that are outlined in the Constitution, which according to a Washington Post staffer....Ezra Klein, has "no binding power." But I thought that the Supreme Court was just for that purpose. I thought that they were trusted with the power to check for constitutionality in laws. Well, I guess not.....but I am ranting again..... so waht do you think. Comments are more than welcome!
