    and I want to thank you for it because in reading it I realized even more deeply than I had previous to this post, the seriousness and perilousness of the direction in which the United States is clearly headed.  I also realized that other than Edward Snowden, almost no one----other than those writing for TomDispatch.com, Glenn Greenwald, and Eric Lichtblau----is even bothering to sound the alarm to  the people of this country of the extreme dangers we have already waded into.  Americans are asleep and our media and our politicians (with a very few exceptions) are aiding and abetting their being kept in the dark.  I fear for us because I see no one on the horizon with the courage, integrity, and strength of character to lead us back to an actual democratic republic.  Our nation has clearly lost its way and strayed far from the values and beliefs that are enmeshed in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.

    Again, thank you for reaching out to us so that WE can enlighten others and help to spread the word.
