Has the US become a police state?

Pick up any reputable establishment press, and lo and behold there is a story on unconstitutional ways America’s police across the land are spying on Americans.

The government–and by that we mean federal, state, and municipalities–are tracking Americans by hacking into telephones–land line or cellular–computers, put tracking devices on automobiles, whilst not neglecting the usual surveillance methods, as well as engaging in the dark arts it usually reserves for spies.

9/11 spawned a cottage security industry. And we shouldn’t neglect the private security companies that the government subsidises handsomely.

Were 2012 1984, we would say how prescient George Orwell was. And he was the the title of his novel notwithstanding.

In a way the US has become a police state with the American flag wrapped around it.
