Brazil! Brazil! Brazil!
The Imperial Surveillance State only lacks the requisite festival in the Rose Garden to be complete.
Our Congress has abrogated its authority, the Imperial Executive has declared the Constitution "optional," and the Courts look on with frequent bemused indifference.
The People, for their part, are still largely oblivious, noticing little has changed in their daily lives except for the obnoxious intrusions of "security procedures" at airports and train stations. Well, of course, one yields. It would be rude to do otherwise.
The Busheviks have nearly consolidated their neo-con replacement for the Republic our Flag once proudly flew over and to which we pledged our allegiance. "We are an Empire now..."
And now our allegiance had better be to the King/Emperor, whomever he or she is, or... else?
Well, that remains to be seen, doesn't it?
Best to have a plan, though...
