The US regularly flies explosive vehicles into buildings to kill civilians in their own countries. US Senator Lindsay Graham admits to 4,700 drone-murders. The US regime orders these murders with dictatorial authority, including assassinating American citizens.
US “leadership” claims drones assassinate “terrorists” who “hate us for our freedoms” and intend to harm Americans. They also claim these are armed attacks/wars the US did not choose.
Let’s examine those claims.
First: US leaders have oaths to support and defend the US Constitution. The US Constitution literally and legally defines what it means to be an “American.” The only way to act “American” is to uphold the Constitution. Article 6 of the Constitution states that US treaties are our “supreme law;” that is, an explicit requirement in being American. The intent of this Constitutional law is for everyone to know when a US President and 2/3+ of the US Senate (ratification) say we’ll do something, we will do it.
After two world wars with all our families’ most dear sacrifices, the US led creation of two treaties to forbid any armed attacks unless in response to a narrow definition of self-defense: nations can never attack another nation unless under attack by a nation’s government. All other armed attacks on other nations are unlawful Wars of Aggression.
Moreover, the US Constitution provides detailed rights to all “persons” in the US Bill of Rights from harm by the US government. These rights include freedom of speech and press without fear of being declared an enemy of the state, freedom from searches unless government obtains a specific warrant from a judge upon probable cause of having committed a crime, right to juries (both a Grand Jury to examine the evidence before a trial, and then to determine the facts of the case for innocence or guilt), freedom from helping the government’s case through one’s own testimony, a speedy and public jury trial, being informed of the government’s charges of alleged crimes, freedom to engage directly with government evidence and witnesses, immediate right to attorney representation, no excessive bail, and no torture.
When a government is no longer limited by the laws in its constitution, we have to change its description from “constitutional republic” to another term. In this case, because drone-assassination applies whenever a leader says so/dictates, that is the exact definition of dictatorship.
As you know, “leadership” violates the law in “emperor has no clothes” fashion in other central areas to what it means to be American. These include related War Crimes such as torture, in banking and other cartels that loot the 99% and then hide $20 to $30 trillion in off-shore tax havens, and corporate media that criminally lie in commission and omission to “cover” these facts.
The trillions of dollars/billions of lives question for each American: Is dictatorship what you want, or do you choose freedom under unalienable rights?
Now is the time to choose, live your choice, and voice your choice.
Choose carefully: choices have consequences, including non-action. Consider How you ended the war, Billy Vegas’ of PuppetGov’s 8-minute video.
