I have long tried to convince people that the United States is well on its way to being a full-fledged police state. I’ve even written on “How Police States Are Born.” Despite the signs, people who I usually think of as intelligent still think I’m being — at best — eccentric. At worst, they just write me off as a nut job.
The truth is, the United States actually already is a police state. We just haven’t all been put on lockdown yet.
But we’re getting there. This past week, we’ve taken a major step forward, and the process has kicked into a higher gear. (Edit 3/21/2017: YouTube video has vanished; link removed.)
