Driving is getting to be a very dangerous activity in these United States. Remember this post? The one where I told you about how 2/3rds of US population now lives in a “Constitution-free” zone where Border Patrol agents can search your vehicle without consent and for any reason they so desire if you’re within 100 miles of the US border. You guys remember that one?
Remember how that means that the top 10 largest metropolitan areas in the US are completely inside the Constitution-Free Zone? And more than 12 states are totally within the zone: Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Hawaii, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island and Vermont? And in California, 99.73% of all residents are living in the Constitution-Free Zone?
Well, you may have thought: “That doesn’t apply to me” or “What could they possibly do to me? Arrest me? For what, driving around doing nothing? This can’t really be happening, this is just blown out of proportion. What can they really do to me?”
Apparently, this is what they can do to you:
They can beat you, tase you, humiliate you, take away every right you have as an American and as a Human Being and leave you with no recourse whatsoever, for just driving your car. This is America now. This man was driving within the US, and didn’t cross a single international border. This isn’t a border issue, this is a fear issue.
Terrorism: the use of extreme fear in order to coerce people (especially for political reasons); Terrorism is the systematic use of terror especially as a means of coercion.
Those Border Patrol agents and the other police involved are terrorists. They are the embodiment of that word. These are the terrorists you need to be afraid of, because they aren’t thousands of miles away in a country you’ve never heard of, they’re in your town, supposedly protecting you. They’re the ones with the guns closest to your head.
