Don't invest in North Carolina.
Second that. Mainstream media in the US doesn't compare to Al Jazeera English.

Wow, talk about hyperbole...
Of course the Republicans want them to be a terrorist organization. The Republicans want everyone to be a terrorist organization. The more terrorists they can point to, the more fear they can peddle, the more money they can rake in and the more endless wars they can start.

Let's see how quickly I can subscribe to them. Hell, I'll even donate.
"When the government stops using its authority to make things secret to largely cover up fraud, waste, abuse of power..."
That is at the heart of this war. The US government and military have abused their ability to classify information to the point that classification has become meaningless.
"Secrecy is a tool of evil, pure and simple."
I don't agree here. Classification of information is essential to any government or military (to a point). Unless your ultimate goal is to get rid of government altogether, but that is a different discussion.
I agree that supporting Wikileaks in any capacity right now is one of the more dangerous things we can do. I have made small donations, so I'm probably under the Witch Hunt radar for now, but I really wonder how surprised I would be to have Feds knocking on my door over the holidays. The US government has acted more like North Korea than I ever would have expected and I think it has taken many by surprise. This just means that the US government will do some serious damage before the people en masse get a clue and try to stop it.
The one thing that I hope comes from all of this damage is that the US government and military stop abusing their ability to classify information.
Bingo. In a perfect world the punishment would fit the crime. That, however, has not been the case in the US for far too long.
Yup, level 4, but what does that really say about us?
My guess is we are too far gone to actually be able to fix this. We have only one direction to go.
