On Nov. 8, Americans will flock to the polls to select the next president.
Then it will be mercifully over.
My question is: what’s your plan for Nov. 9?
Because no matter who wins the election, one year from now, I guarantee the federal government will be bigger, more intrusive and deeper in debt. And there will be more violations of the Constitution.
So, if our goal is restoring limited constitutional government, we can’t put any hope in this upcoming election. That’s why we need to be thinking ahead. No matter who takes up residence at Pennsylvania Avenue, there’s going to be a lot of nullifying to do in the years ahead!
One of the things I’m really excited about is the growing local movement to address the surveillance state. With the way the feds have entwined themselves with state and local law enforcement, local action can actually have a significant impact on federal spy programs. The federal government taps into state and local surveillance information to build their own massive databases. When state and local governments limit the amount of information their police can gather and restricts how it is shared, it hinders the flow of data into the federal system.
A great way to take concrete action is to go to your local county or city council member and ask them to introduce the Local Ordinance to Limit Surveillance Technology. You can find model language HERE.
And while were on the subject of surveillance, check out my recent report on the growing facial recognition system in the U.S. It definitely falls into the category of creepy Big Brother stuff.
