Resisting the American police state: where we should find common ground

Libertarians.

Greens.

Campaign for Liberty.

Progressives.

Independents.

Anarchists.

If you are not part of the mainstream of the two-party system (or, in Delaware, part of the Republicanized Democratic Party), then you need to start thinking about common ground with your brothers and sisters, and it should begin here.

Mother Jones, reprising Radley Balko, considers the rise of the American police state.

Time to stop this before America fails the Ben Franklin test:  "A republic, sir, if you can keep it."

We started failing the Franklin test in 1862, and got dramatically worse in 1913.
