Armstrong Economics Blog/Rule of Law Re-Posted Dec 23, 2022 by Martin Armstrong
Anyone who trusts the government is an absolute fool. I have stated that the First Amendment was intended to protect us from free speech. The interpretation is that as long as the government does not “direct;y” censor the people, whatever social media does is fair game. But they have violated that line and have been acting UNCONSTITUTIONALLY by handing lists to Twitter of people they want to be censored. Since I was also blocked on Twitter, I assumed I too must have been on that list.
Yet Democrats like Adam Schiff, who in my opinion is a traitor to the Constitution, are clamoring to go after Musk and reestablish censorship of people. Back in 2012, President Obama had the Democrats give him the power to actually shut down the entire internet on claims of hacking. That’s right – the ENTIRE Internet! It was the Democrat Diane Feinstein for called Edward Snowden a traitor and would have gone for the death penalty because he exposed the government was illegally conducting surveillance of its citizens, which turned out to even be President Trump.
This is why the United States will collapse. It is simply beyond any control. As long as we have a representative form of government, a Republic, there is no hope for the future. This is why this time it will fall and hopefully we get a shot at creating a real democracy. Last time it was a collapse of Monarchy. The Founding Fathers had great ideas, but without term limits, you end up with a professional political class who sees us as the dirt beneath their feet. So post 2032, it will be interesting to see what will happen. I will have to be looking down from above.
