This Is NOT A Movie
The above picture is not a Hollywood set. It is an internment camp within U.S. borders, and there are plenty more of them. Most can be found on closed military bases, and are manned by Homeland Security and FEMA personnel. Over the past decade, there has been enough research to indicate that this is no urban myth. Rep. Henry Gonzalez admitted to their existence in 1997. And now, we find that Halliburton has been awarded a 385 million dollar contract to build even more camps. The justification given is a possible immigration problem, but that seems ludicrous in the face of this administration's very liberal immigration policy.
The real reason probably has more to do with our plans for further war-making, and the resistance that will surely follow. A war with Iran will not be a war of "liberation", and the million or so Iranians here in the U.S. may take great exception to seeing their homeland turned into a parking lot. So, too, will millions of liberals and disillusioned conservatives who will have seen this country slide far enough into a dictatorship, and those that protest too vigorously will be placed in the "fifth column" category. That means enemy combatant, as Atty. Gen. Ashcroft calls them, and, as per his vision, they are subject to be rounded up and placed in said internment camps.
In spite of my own trepidation, I'm not yet convinced that the deployment of these camps is an absolute given. It may just be that the neocons are hedging their bets. However, it's important to know that these camps existed throughout a Democratic administration, and so it would be erroneous to assume that they will be on the way out along with the current regime in 2008. It would not surprise me in the least to see Madame President Hillary Clinton sending dissidents on a one-way ride while under martial law. Wolves in sheep's clothing do eventually show their teeth, and especially at dinner time, which, for the New World Order, seems to be coming up. Wars, pandemics, and global warming are the barbarians at the gates, and they spell an end to democracy and national sovereignty. Whoever the leaders may be, they will deal with these crises with a very heavy hand, and with no compassion whatsoever. I hope we've learned that much from what happened in New Orleans.
For those who would dismiss this scenario out of hand; isn't Guantanamo Bay just a little too close to home? We are one degree of separation from having it right here in our own backyards. Halliburton has it's contract in hand, and will commence building camps. What say you to that? First, they took the Muslims...you know the rest. Mind you, don't lose any sleep, but try to know that you're not waking up in the same world you used to wake up in. Novus Ordo Seclorum is the rule now, and the constitution is going the way of streetcars, biplanes, and gas lamps. In time, the only way you'll see it again is to visit the Smithsonian.
