1984 Is Here!

George Orwell was correct:  he just got the year wrong!  Welcome to the United Police States of America!

The video shown below includes violations of many of our constitutional guarantees, not the least of which is freedom of movement within the state, between states, and freedom to live where one chooses.

Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas, (1898 - 1980) explained it well:

"The right to travel is a part of the 'liberty' of which the citizen cannot be deprived without due process of law under the Fifth Amendment. If that "liberty" is to be regulated, it must be pursuant to the law-making functions of the Congress. . . . . Freedom of movement across frontiers in either direction, and inside frontiers as well, was a part of our heritage. Travel abroad, like travel within the country, . . . may be as close to the heart of the individual as the choice of what he eats, or wears, or reads. Freedom of movement is basic in our scheme of values."

What is happening in too many parts of our country,  most notably in the southwest, is beyond appalling, and in clear violation of this clause of the Fifth Amendment.

Furthermore, these actions also involve violations of the Fourteenth Amendment, as they both address 'due process.'  From Wikipedia:

"Due Process Clause:
The Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments to the United States Constitution each contain a Due Process Clause. Due process deals with the administration of justice and thus the Due Process Clause acts as a safeguard from arbitrary denial of life, liberty, or property by the Government outside the sanction of law. The Supreme Court of the United States interprets the Clauses as providing four protections: procedural due process (in civil and criminal proceedings), substantive due process, a prohibition against vague laws, and as the vehicle for the incorporation of the Bill of Rights."

If what you see in this video does not make your blood boil, you are either dead or part of the problem.
