Another Day in the Empire » R.I.P. Posse Comitatus

Another Day in the Empire » R.I.P. Posse Comitatus: "It was Representative Ron Paul of Texas who read into the Congressional Record on June 25, 1997—well before the malfeasance of George Bush, the Constitution-bashing Patriot Act, and the reckless so-called war on terror—the following: “In a police state the police are national, powerful, authoritarian. Inevitably, national governments yield to the temptation to use the military to do the heavy lifting…. [O]nce the military is used, however minor initially, the march toward martial law … becomes irresistible.”"
