Robert E. Lee was right!

When he wrote this to Lord Acton:
… the consolidation of the states into one vast republic, sure to be aggressive abroad and despotic at home, will be the certain precursor of that ruin which has overwhelmed all those that have preceded it.
Philip Giraldi confirms that an aggressive foreign policy and a despotic domestic policy go hand-in-hand:
The erosion of America’s liberties has been driven by fear of terrorism but it is enabled by leaps in technology coupled with new legislation and a police state mentality that have made every citizen a target. Hate crimes and laws targeting the internet provide a framework that relies on advanced monitoring technology to criminalize behavior that would have been considered off limits for privacy reasons ten years ago.
And so the multicult left and the pro-war right lock arms to steal our liberty.
