Police State

January, 2012

These articles describe how the U.S. has become a totalitarian police state, becoming more and more like the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany. This isn’t just “conspiracy theory.”

Don’t let the government’s war propaganda and fear-mongering influence your ability to understand what the government is really doing to our country.

(I will add more to this list as new articles become available…The most recent ones will most likely be toward the top of the list)
