CNN: Ben Carson: ‘We should have a database on everybody’
Editor’s Note: Stewart Rhodes has issued a statement relative to the below article by CNN.
NOTE FROM STEWART:
Ben Carson can rest easy. We already have a database on everyone (at least on all of us mere citizens) at the massive NSA data storage facility in Utah. Now we can all break out into a chorus of “PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN, WHERE AT LEAST I KNOW I’M FREE”). Hey, so long as all of us lowly citizens are treated the same (all equally wire-tapped, surveilled, and tracked like residents of East Germany, by our own hi-tech version of the Stasi, and all equally subject to warrantlesss searches, military detention and trial, extraordinary rendition and torture, or drone strike assassination), and we do ” whatever we need to do to protect the American people” we’re all good, right? Right? Because that is the oath he will take if elected president – to do whatever it takes to protect us, so long as we are all treated the same. Not.
The ignorance of the candidates about fundamental principles of American liberty is breathtaking. And the answer is always the same: Be afraid, be very afraid and give up your liberty. The true answer is in the mirror. You are the people. You are the militia. Act like it.
I am only posting a few “teaser” paragraphs here, so please read the entire article at its original source. Thank you.
Ben Carson: ‘We should have a database on everybody’
(CNN)While Donald Trump is facing heat for apparently supporting the idea of a database of Muslims in the U.S., GOP primary opponent Ben Carson also wants a database — of everyone in the country.
“I think we should have a database on everyone who comes into this country,” the retired neurosurgeon told reporters from the New Hampshire statehouse Friday, adding later, “Hopefully, we already have a database on every citizen who is already here. If not, we are doing a very poor job.”
Trump’s comments came Thursday after NBC News asked the real estate mogul if there should be a database to keep track of Muslims in the country.
