Our government unilaterally rewrote the basic agreement between We, the People who are sovereign, and the government which is supposed to report to us.
As a result, no citizen can understand the reasons behind the actions of his Representatives or the government. Thus, the government is sovereign as We, the People, have no control of it.
This is treason. This is the functional equivalent to a coup, kept secret by the people who did it.
We cannot allow the government to engage in anything that require secrecy, or we will be in this situation again.
So, time to become a neutral nation the way the guys who wrote the Constitution intended. Bring the troops home and repudiate all of the treaties that allow them to be overseas. Repeal the acts enabling our NSA, CIA, FBI and FISA, as these are all more dangerous to us as citizens than anything they purport to protect us against.
Purge the Department of Justice, which seems to exist to write memos justifying obviously bogus interpretations of laws and the Constitution.
Remove every person from government who knew about, and did nothing to oppose, any episode of torture, drone attacks on US citizens, or any of this spying,
Un-elect all Representatives who knew about and did nothing to oppose these things.
Anything less than this, the coup will ultimately succeed.
