You all took at least one US Government class. You learned US federal government is limited in power by our Constitution. “Limited government” prevents unlimited or dictatorial power.
Given our unalienable rights and Constitution, We the People have a choice: either honor and uphold our freedoms under law, or surrender to “emperor has no clothes” obvious criminals. Many Americans have Oaths to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.”
Are you ready for victory now? Or do you choose to support and defend crimes that annually kill millions, harm billions, and loot trillions of our dollars while destroying our honor and damning our children to tyranny?
You are capable of verifying the simplest of facts, and will quickly recognize and confirm the following US acts are obvious crimes:
" PRESIDENT OBAMA has refused to tell Congress or the American people why he believes the Constitution gives, or fails to deny, him the authority to secretly target and kill American citizens who he suspects are involved in terrorist activities overseas. So far he has killed three that we know of.
Presidents had never before, to our knowledge, targeted specific Americans for military strikes. There are no court decisions that tell us if he is acting lawfully. Mr. Obama tells us not to worry, though, because his lawyers say it is fine, because experts guide the decisions and because his advisers have set up a careful process to help him decide whom he should kill."
No Freedoms in Post 9/11 America? | Big Brother Watch
In one of the least surprising developments imaginable, President Obama – after spending months threatening to veto the Levin/McCain detention bill – yesterday announced that he would instead sign it into law (this is the same individual, of course, who unequivocally vowed when seeking the Democratic nomination to support a filibuster of “any bill that includes retroactive immunity for telecom[s],” only to turn around – once he had the nomination secure — and not only vote against such a filibuster, but to vote in favor of the underlying bill itself, so this is perfectly consistent with his past conduct). As a result, the final version of the Levin/McCain bill will be enshrined as law this week as part of the the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). I wrote about the primary provisions and implications of this bill last week, and won’t repeat those points here.
The ACLU said last night that the bill contains “harmful provisions that some legislators have said could authorize the U.S. military to pick up and imprison without charge or trial civilians, including American citizens, anywhere in the world” and added: “if President Obama signs this bill, it will damage his legacy.” Human Rights Watch said that Obama’s decision “does enormous damage to the rule of law both in the US and abroad” and that “President Obama will go down in history as the president who enshrined indefinite detention without trial in US law.”

Whether you like it or not, whether you want it or not, you are within a new American Revolution.
The “emperor has no clothes” obvious facts that expose US political/economic “leadership” crimes center on US wars that are nowhere close to lawful and all based on lies, and trillions of dollars transferred from the American public to these political/economic “leaders.”
There are many other related crimes. I do my part as a professional educator of government and economics to walk people through the relatively simple explanations and documentation. I offer a professional academic paper, and one with my “citizen voice”:
Open proposal for US revolution: end unlawful wars, parasitic economics
Common Sense for new American Revolution: revolt from US government by dicts
The path of We the People is set: critical mass is embracing the intellectual integrity and moral courage to declare our fascist emperors are without a shred of constitutional or legal clothing.

Fellow Americans: literally for the love of God, it’s time.
It’s time to recognize the overwhelming evidence of unlawful and lie-based US Wars of Aggression, rigged-casino economics, and a complicit corporate media that echoes propaganda for our lying sacks of spin “leaders” who operate above and in contempt of US law.
It’s time to recognize “leadership” of both parties are the Left and Right arms of one oligarchic political body. The proper academic label for this government, not even close to a constitutional republic, is fascism.
The US government is run by dicts, as in dictatorship; doing whatever they dictate and unlimited by rule of law.
Here are all the explanation, documentation, and proof that any American of intellectual integrity and moral courage require to do what Common Sense demanded in 1776, and common sense demands in 2011:

Activist Post wrote a brilliant article to explain and document how the Obama administration has escalated the unlawful policies of the Bush administration. The unlawful policies of murderous wars and fraudulent transfer of trillions of taxpayers' dollars to corporate elites by "leadership" of Democrats and Republicans leads America to one obvious political response:
This post discusses fascism as an appropriate term to describe current US political process. As a teacher of Advanced Placement US Government, I agree. I explain and document here why "fascism" is the closest label of what the US is today behind the unpracticed promises within our constitutional republic. Here is what Activist Post reports:
10 Reasons Obama is Just As Bad or Worse Than Bush
Is the State of Emergency Superseding the US Constitution? Continuity of Government Planning, War and American Society by Peter Dale Scott
In July 1987, during the Iran-Contra Hearings grilling of Oliver North, the American public got a glimpse of “highly sensitive” emergency planning North had been involved in. Ostensibly North had been handling plans for an emergency response to a nuclear attack (a legitimate concern). But press accounts alleged that the planning was for a more generalized suspension of the constitution at the president’s determination.
As part of its routine Iran-contra coverage, the following exchange was printed in the New York Times without journalistic comment or follow-up:
[Congressman Jack] Brooks: Colonel North, in your work at the N.S.C. were you not assigned, at one time, to work on plans for the continuity of government in the event of a major disaster?
Both North’s attorney and Sen. Daniel Inouye, the Democratic Chair of the Committee, responded in a way that showed they were aware of the issue:
Brendan Sullivan [North's counsel, agitatedly]: Mr. Chairman?

This article series explains what happened when I interacted with participants of a 9/11 event to welcome home US soldiers and honor the victims of 9/11, then provides the e-mail exchange with the sponsoring group’s leadership.
Consistent with my last two years of writing articles to explain, document, and prove current US wars aren’t even close to lawful and all based on lies, nobody at this event of mostly current and former US military could defend current US wars as lawful, even in subsequent e-mails and in their consultation with the group’s “Constitutionalist.” I challenge anyone to explain, document, and prove in the comments section below that US war in Afghanistan, Iraq, and/or Iran is legal (you can put what you say in more than one comment). I will likely demand anyone making such argument to refute my longer explanation of US war law that I will reference in my comment responses from my article, “Open proposal to US higher education.”
WASHINGTON - Placed in office through legalized bribery, supported by public funding for their every need, protected against the laws that we're expected to obey, Congress represents the epitome of lawlessness; lawmakers who have no regard for the law. (Image)
Members of Congress are different. They get to retire at age 62 with lifetime pensions and health benefits. To qualify, they need just five years of service. They get free phone, mail, and other communications plus paid domestic and foreign travel. Supposedly, they're not allowed to take gifts but the list of exceptions offers plenty of room for luxurious appreciation.
The biggest gift of all - a six to seven figure job with a major corporation or lobbying firm right after retirement - is still fair game for any member. The revolving door never stops.

Part I of III
WASHINGTON - Selected to run by the powerful and wealthy, promising the public one thing and delivering another after elected, the President of the United States is the focus of a new political doctrine - the unitary executive. The office of the president has rapidly become a law unto itself over the past ten years. (Image)
Some time before February 2010, the President of the United States authorized the assassination of a U.S. citizen living overseas. The citizen was identified by the White House as a terrorist.
Unlike previous government programs to kill individuals overseas, this one wasn't a covert operation. The program was openly announced, without qualification. Dennis Blair, the Director of National Intelligence, discussed the plan in February at a congressional hearing. A few weeks later, John O. Brennan, the president's National Security Adviser, announced that the marked man was one of "dozens" of U.S. citizens put on the presidential death list because "they are very concerning to us."
The principal of unfettered executive power, absent political and judicial restraint, was officially established. Executive power now supersedes established law.

Benjamin Netanyahu said, in 2001:
"I know what America is, America is a thing you can move very easily, move it in the right direction. They won't get in the way."
Keeping that in mind, let's take Netanyahu's wise words to heart, as voiced in this speech:
Austin Moody served four years as infantry in the US Marines. He gave me permission to reprint his e-mail and letter below describing the Orwellian condition of active-duty military men and women conditioned to follow orders without ever being educated about the US Constitution. All orders must be within the US Constitution; ignorant soldiers are therefore incapable of honoring their Oath of Enlistment to support and defend the US Constitution.
(updated below - Update II)
Few issues highlight Barack Obama's extreme hypocrisy the way that Bagram does. As everyone knows, one of George Bush’s most extreme policies was abducting people from all over the world -- far away from any battlefield -- and then detaining them at Guantanamo with no legal rights of any kind, not even the most minimal right to a habeas review in a federal court. Back in the day, this was called "Bush's legal black hole." In 2006, Congress codified that policy by enacting the Military Commissions Act, but in 2008, the Supreme Court, in Boumediene v. Bush, ruled that provision unconstitutional, holding that the Constitution grants habeas corpus rights even to foreign nationals held at Guantanamo. Since then, detainees havewon 35 out of 48 habeas hearings brought pursuant to Boumediene, on the ground that there was insufficient evidence to justify their detention.

Holder: Miranda may need changes for terrorists
By STEVEN R. HURST (AP) – 8 hours ago
WASHINGTON — In the wake of the Times Square bombing plot, the Obama administration said on Sunday it wants to work with Congress on possible limitations of the constitutional rights afforded terrorism suspects — even for American citizens.
Attorney General Eric Holder said changes may be needed to allow law enforcement more time to question suspected terrorists before they are told about their Miranda rights to a lawyer and to remain silent under interrogation.
As the nation debates how to proceed against terrorist attacks, particularly as they have become the work of individuals who are difficult to detect in advance, the administration has been heavily criticized for reading Miranda rights to suspects in the Christmas Day attempt to blow up a plane heading for Detroit and the May 1 Times Square plot.
Terrorism has presented all sides in the debate with a delicate balancing act, protecting the rights of the individuals accused of terrorism while also attending to public safety.

The word “dictatorship” means law is whatever “leadership” dictates; literally the diction of the leader (leader = Fuhrer in German).
Senators McCain and Liebermann introduced the “Enemy Belligerent, Interrogation, Detention, and Prosecution Act of 2010” (full bill here; italicized bold type is my addition):
"The bill asks the President to determine criteria for designating an individual as a "high-value detainee" if he/she: (1) poses a threat of an attack on civilians or civilian facilities within the U.S. or U.S. facilities abroad; (2) poses a threat to U.S. military personnel or U.S. military facilities; (3) potential intelligence value; (4) is a member of al Qaeda or a terrorist group affiliated with al Qaeda or (5) such other matters as the President considers appropriate."

A Call for Truth Over Treason
Stop War by exposing the 9/11 Cover-up
Misprision of felony or treason is the ‘offense of concealing knowledge of a felony or treason by one who has not participated or assisted in it.’ The Constitution of the United States, Article III, defines treason against the United States to consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid or comfort. The events of September 11 was described as an act of war by President Bush, and used to justify expanding the war in Afghanistan by President Obama. These administrations are perhaps guilty of criminal acts or treason, based on the following evidence of a cover-up and misuse-distortion of the actual events of September 11, 2001.

Congressman Ron Paul spoke on the House floor for 5-minutes on US policy to assassinate US citizens at the dictate of the executive branch based on “secret evidence,” US policy of torture that includes American citizens and without legal recourse, US policy of rendition to secret prisons, and unlimited detention.
He concludes with “emperor has no clothes” obvious observation that these acts are unlawful.
Dr. Paul states with “emperor has no clothes” simple fact that the “leadership” of both Republican and Democratic parties uphold these policies despite their Orwellian opposition to our US Constitution that our government and military have oaths to support and defend against all enemies, foreign and domestic.

George Washington on defending the US Constitution: guard against impostures of pretended patriotism
hyperlinks live at source: http://www.examiner.com/x-18425-LA-County-Nonpartisan-Examiner~y2010m2d1...
After 45 years of service to the newly created United States, George Washington published a message to the American people; the summation of what he most wanted to contribute to Americans' understanding of defending our Constitutional government.
Washington's Farewell Address is considered so important that it is read in its entirety every year in the Senate, and has been read in one or both chambers of Congress every year since 1862.
The following three paragraphs give us context and his advice: guard against the impostures of pretended patriotism.
This article hits the nail on the head.. or is it an image of the last nail in our coffin. Is the US Constitution dead?

Have We Learned Anything from the Bush Years? by George Washington
Fear makes people stupid.
It makes us unable to think straight. And it makes us give up our power to tough-talking authoritarians.
War Is Stupid
And since the "war on terror" is now being expanded to Yemen, it is worth remembering that experts state that the "war on terror" has been counterproductive for keeping us safe. For example, a leading advisor to the U.S. military, the hawkish Rand Corporation, released a study in 2008 called "How Terrorist Groups End: Lessons for Countering al Qa'ida".
The report confirms what experts have been saying for years: the war on terror is actually weakening national security (see this, this and this).
As a press release about the study states:
"Terrorists should be perceived and described as criminals, not holy warriors, and our analysis suggests that there is no battlefield solution to terrorism."
And see this.

"I will never apologize for the United States of America - I don't care what the facts are."-George H.W. Bush, repeatedly in 1988 in his campaign for US President. Mr. Bush was responding to the U.S. Navy warship Vincennes, illegally in Iranian waters, shooting down an Iranian commercial airliner on routine flight in a commercial corridor in Iranian airspace. All 290 civilian people in the aircraft were killed. This was at the end of the US-backed War of Aggression of Iraq upon Iran. When a military targets and fires upon another country’s peaceful aircraft, that is a blatant act of war. The US, to this day, denies responsibility for the attack.

Among hundreds of writers, I’ve documented overwhelming evidence that the US is waging illegal Wars of Aggression, the worst crime a nation can commit. I’ve also documented the OBVIOUS lies political “leadership” from both parties told and still tell to justify these campaigns for empire. I’ve given historical context of Abraham Lincoln doing the same as a freshman in Congress pointing out the OBVIOUS lies justifying invasion of Mexico.
The Left and Right arms of the one oligarchic political body will not prosecute each other, of course. These politicians are not merely lying sacks of spin; their crimes are treason against the United States because they’ve killed over 5,000 American troops. They betray their oath of office to protect and defend the US Constitution each and every day. Some of us suggest Truth and Reconciliation (T&R) as a strategy to peel-away people who are want to safely provide information to restore the US Constitution and American values.

Being American is a political distinction. As such, the documents that articulate what it means to be an American, our values and laws, are primarily the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution.
Being a proud American means LIVING their values and laws. George Washington admonished Americans to defend our values and law from "the impostures of pretended patriotism." Abraham Lincoln, considered as one of the world's most eloquent and powerful writers urged Americans:
