"There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws ... pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced nor objectively interpreted and you create a nation of law-breakers." ~Ayn Rand
I don't think I could think of a truer statement today. The following videos clearly demonstrate this principal, and showcase just how drastically things have gotten out of hand. In order to support our overstretched, overpowered militant police force, they have to start turning the whip on the little guys -- you and me. And I can personally testify how true this is... A few weeks ago, I was pulled over and received a traffic violation of $80 for, guess what? Not signaling for 2 seconds before changing lanes.
Yep... I think that warrants an $80 ticket, don't you? I don't even want to know what would have happened had a drifted across a white line...
And, next time you travel, you'd better leave all your cash at home. You might be a drug trafficker.
And hey, while we're crackin down on all these little guys, we might as well throw in some assault on the handicapped too! No one's littler than them.... surely this will strike fear and respect into the hearts of the people.
As a side note, Adams show is particularly worth watching if you have the interest and time. He covers a great deal of related topics, and he's a great voice for the fed-up millennials out there.
As many of you might guess, this 'devolution' of our police force is something that I've been following for quite some time. I've often looked back and pondered many things, like when and why did the police force devolve from being there to help people and serve the public to, quite litterally, the local city mafia. It's no wonder nobody likes police officers any more... plain and simple, they don't give a rats ass about protecting the common man, and they don't understand things like civility, humanity, and common decency and understanding... They're job now is to keep us in line, and to make as much revenue as they can while they're doing it. All they understand now are the necessities of following orders and filling quotas. Oh yeah, and the power. I'm -sure- they understand that, too.
