9/11 was a watershed moment in American history. Since that event, the liberty of Americans has been significantly eroded. The Patriot Act, Military Commissions Act, the Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act, and the latest National Defense Authorization Act all contain frightening provisions that have taken away much of our freedom.
Additionally, the government is increasing the number of "checkpoints" across America as you can read here. Until Americans wake up and put the pressure on the government to halt such abuse, the loss of freedom will accelerate.
In a civilized society, should anyone or any government ever force anyone to do anything against his or her will as long as that person does not infringe upon the life, liberty, or property of another?
