Since 11 September 2001 the apparatus of our government has descended into total madness. It was not just the destruction of the World Trade Center that was responsible; although it was the justification of the Patriot Act and increased power of the Unitary Presidency.

The madness I speak of includes the final insane reactions between 20005 to 2008 to the oncoming of Peak Oil and the susequent  crash-and-burn of the American economy

What did American leadership do?

They doubled-down on the something-for-nothing consumer-based growth economy and bet the farm on domination in the Middle East oil producing region.

They bailed out the elitist banksters with trillions of dollars of free funny-money on the backs of our children creating a generation of debt-serfs.

They now lie about a economic recovery and an independent energy future that is nonexistent while preparing to put down any domestic rebellion with a militariazed police force and, drones and total surveillance of US citizenry.

Who are the traitors of America?

Our elected officials and bureaucracy that attend to the wealthy elite and the corporations.

I don't forgive the wealthy and the corporations, but at least we know they are in it for themselves and are not acting in our behalf - despite all the advertising, public relations and philanthropy.

I have no sympathy for them. On the other hand I can only condemn the "public servants" we have elected who have lied to get into office; who have made their deals, stabbing us in the back.

Who are they? Most of them. And that includes the more "reasonable", "non-total-nutjobs". The ones that voted for the Patriot Acts, the Iraq Wars, the National Defense Authorizatin Acts, etc. They include President Barack Obama; Senators John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Charles Schumer, and Diane Feinstein.

Feinstein chairs the Senate Intelligence Committee, and said on ABC’s This Week yesterday that she was “open to doing a hearing” on the NSA’s intelligence gathering every month or so, but when it comes to the motivations and actions of the man who exposed the breadth of the intelligence gathering, according to The Hill, it appears Feinstein has already made her mind up.

“I don’t look at this as being a whistleblower. I think it’s an act of treason,” the chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee told reporters.
The California lawmaker went on to say that Snowden had violated his oath to defend the Constitution.
“He violated the oath, he violated the law. It’s treason.”
It was Senator Feingold not Feinstein who we should respect. Russ Feingold was the only one in the US Senate who voted against the Patriot Act in 200.

Feingold said then (http://www.mediaite.com/online/they-should-have-listened-to-feingold-obama-vs-the-only-senator-who-voted-against-the-patriot-act/):
"Some have said rather cavalierly that in these difficult times we must accept some reduction in our civil liberties in order to be secure.
Of course, there is no doubt that if we lived in a police state, it would be easier to catch terrorists. If we lived in a country that allowed the police to search your home at any time for any reason; if we lived in a country that allowed the government to open your mail, eavesdrop on your phone conversations, or intercept your email communications; if we lived in a country that allowed the government to hold people in jail indefinitely based on what they write or think, or based on mere suspicion that they are up to no good, then the government would no doubt discover and arrest more terrorists.
But that probably would not be a country in which we would want to live. And that would not be a country for which we could, in good conscience, ask our young people to fight and die. In short, that would not be America.
Preserving our freedom is one of the main reasons that we are now engaged in this new war on terrorism. We will lose that war without firing a shot if we sacrifice the liberties of the American people."
It is Senator Diane Feinstein and President Barack Obama who are among the traitors to the American Constitution - not Bradley manning and Edward Snowden!
