When talking about the Constitution as the Founders and Ratifiers gave us, there tends to be two primary viewpoints – those that are in favor of strict limitations on federal power, and those who want those limits obliterated.

Stereotypes in our society generally separate those views by political party support – or even voting habits.

"In the beginning of a change,
the Patriot is a scarce man,
brave, hated and scorned.
When his cause succeeds

for then it costs nothing to
be a Patriot."

The United States has been declared under martial law. All constitutional rights have been suspended. Anyone interfering with the collection of urine samples will be shot. Anyone failing to attend morning school prayer will be shot. The number one enemy of progress is questions. National security is more important than individual rights. Sports broadcasts will proceed as scheduled. Shut up, be happy, obey all orders without question. At last everything is done for you.

"You learn that you either are
going to have a police state where
you don't have any freedom left, or
you're going to build a world that
doesn't create terrorists - and that
means a whole different way of
getting along."
