The Dawning of Domestic Drones
Why secession? I was asked that question on an NPR show a few years back. I responded that big governments ALWAYS become tyrannical and self-destructive. The host, Mike Collins, couldn't believe his ears when I said that elections were pointless in this country because DC's policies remain unchanged. We've argued before that DC's quest for empire is behind almost every problem we face today, from deficit spending, to open borders, to the loss of our liberty. This story should convince even the most true-blue of true believers that our DC overlords are building a totalitarian infrastructure as fast as they can:
The drones are coming to a neighborhood near you. The unmanned aircraft that most people associate with hunting terrorists and striking targets in Pakistan are on the brink of evolving into a big domestic industry. It is not a question of whether drones will appear in the skies above the United States but how soon. Congress has ordered the Federal Aviation Administration to quickly select six domestic sites to test the safety of drones, which can vary in size from remote-controlled planes as big as jetliners to camera-toting hoverers called Nano Hummingbirds that weigh 19 grams.Odd that this is being done while DC proposes disarming Americans, isn't it? Just a coincidence, I suppose.
