The National Security State is an Embarrassment
The embarassment of a national security state is evident in these photos of the hardware they are buying in Tampa and Charlotte for the two political conventions. People will look back at this time and see a country in economic decline, unable to invest appropriate resources to re-start a collapsed economy, allowng the wealthy to horde extreme wealth, cutting the necessities of its people as income, and wealth decline and instead wastefully spending resources of mlitary hardware in order to stop people from exercising their political rights. The people in power are doing all they can so they do not have to hear the peoples concerns while they party inside unecessary conventions where the corporate bribes flow freely. The less expensive way to stop protest is to listen to the concerns of the people rather than attempt to suppress them. There is no wisdom in today's leaders. Are they trying to create anger and violence? Protesters should not take the bait, stay non-violent and let the U.S. security state show itself to the world. Police, who are not part of the 1%, should realize they are being used by the .1% and join the revolt. They do not have to use these weapons aganst us.
