Following in China's Footsteps.

Oh, if only we could count the ways.

No privacy -- Check
No personal liberty -- Check
Massive wage inequality -- Check
Destitute 'working class' (i.e. slaves) -- Check
No right to speak out against the government -- Check
No right to safety in your own home from illegal searches -- Check
Complete disregard for the environment, regulations of any kind, and the citizens of the state -- Check

I could go on and on.

This last one speaks for itself.

And, of course, more on the elimination of the 4th amendment:

IN Sheriff: If We Need to Conduct RANDOM HOUSE to HOUSE Searches We Will

Wow... That didn't take long, did it? And now we see why these things are such a slippery slope. 

Speaking of slippery slope, "sneak and peak" search warrants are increasing almost exponentially. What's wrong with these? They allow cops to effectively break in your home and go through your things without informing you, and they do it when you're not even home. And 77% of them are used not for the 'intended' purpose of investigating terrorism, but for minor drug offenses.  

In other news, the 4th amendment isn't the only thing they want to kill.

 H.J.res. 62. Amending the Constitution to end states rights?

Not entirely sure what the implications of this could be, but it should prove to be very interesting.

And finally, just to end the post with some good old fashioned police brutality:
