Quote for the Day

"The sole purpose of our Constitution is to define the limited role of government in order to guarantee individual rights." – Tom DeWeese

Examples for Those That Claim "It Can't Happen Here!" (Part 1)

There is a deep rift in American society today, there are those that lean toward more government control and regulations and there are those that are strictly opposed to handing over more power and control to the government. Those that are for more government oversight are of the opinion that the government is the only entity with the funding and the know how to get certain things done. On the other side are the fears that giving too much power to the government could lead to very bad things. I, as you well know, am one of those that is strictly opposed to handing the government any more power. In fact I am of the opinion that the government needs quite a bit of its powers stripped from it, it has already overreached what was limited to it via the Constitution.

Myself and others like me are constantly told that we have nothing to worry about. That the United States Government truly has our best interest at heart and would do nothing to harm the people of this great nation. We are told that at times decisions must be made and sometimes this means a number of people feel the brunt of this decision. Sometimes as with many tough decisions this might be the case. But what I am about to discuss and show you are true cases of things the government has done that would seem like something out of the darkest fiction.

MKULTRA, might be the first time many of you have heard of this. But it was a clandestine program ran by the CIA in the 1960's. It was a mind control and chemical interrogation experiment that started out by CIA agents slipping LSD and other drugs and chemicals into each others drinks unawares. However, it eventually spiraled into tests on unknowing and unwitting citizens of the United States. Yes, you read that correct, an entity of the federal government drugged American citizens without them knowing. With at least two known deaths. [source]

But that is only the beginning, MKULTRA was actually a spin off of a program known as Operation Paperclip. Operation Paperclip was a program to recruit former Nazi scientists, many of whom had studied torture and brainwashing and had even been identified and prosecuted during the Nuremberg Trials.

Read up on those items and realize that everything mentioned so far is FACT. It is not fallacy, conjecture, paranoia, etc... Each and every one of the things I have mentioned are well documented and admitted to by the U.S. Government.

As a side note. There is a considerable amount of credible circumstantial evidence that Theodore Kaczynski (The Unabomber) participated in MKULTRA experiments at Harvard University. [source]

So don't bother telling me that "It can't happen here!" It already has and could again without eternal vigilance.

This is just part one in a multi-part look at atrocities carried out by the U.S. Government on its own citizens. Check back for part two which will be posted in the very near future.
