America Dictatorship or Democratic Republic?

Author Naomi Wolf, has written another book and this one suggests that our great nation is on the abyss of collapse to dictatorship. Perhaps Naomi is just an alarmist but the concern over the U.S. Constitution is a growing aspect of the Presidential arena. To start with here is a few quotes from our political leaders.

Pres. George Bush "The Constitution is just a piece of paper."

Sen. Chris Dodd "You will get your Constitution Back."

Gen. Tommy Franks says "that if the United States is hit with a weapon of mass destruction that inflicts large casualties, the Constitution will likely be discarded in favor of a military form of government."

U.S. Rep. Ron Paul calls himself the "Champion of the US Constitution."

Currently in the post 9/11 world new and powerful transitions of power have gone to the White House. These power shifts, power taken away from the people, are due to the suspension of Habeas Corpus, suspension of the Posse Comitatus Act, Patriot Act 1, Patriot Act 2, Thought Crimes (Bill not yet passed) and many other like bills not mentioned.

Congress and the White House has some of the lowest approval and job ratings in history. This clearly shows the growing discord and dissatisfaction that has been around since the second term of the Bush Administration began. The concept of a revolution however, has been around since 1776. Why Naomi is so alarmed can only be explained in her own words, and yet now I question has America become a Dictatoship with a less powerful underlying Democratic Republic? Or does people power and the Constitution still rule. Let us think more about this and gather our thoughts if nothing else, but I am certain about one thing and that is vigilance starts with our government.

Naomi Wolf who was featured in today's broadcast on the GCN radio networks Alex Jones show, also posted a previously recorded very informative video. This video, obtained from Youtube is shared below for your review and commentary.
