"The publication of National Security Presidential Directive 51 (Homeland Security Presidential Directive 20) on 9 May 2007 , now available on the White House's web site, represents another major stage in the devolution of the United States from a constitutional republic to a Caesaristic police state. Inadvertently, though, it exposes the primary danger to the continuation of its own power that the Establishment now fears. As well, it emphasizes the impossibility of any succor for the American people from the present 'two' major political parties. And thus it should actually energize We the People into doing what is necessary to salvage freedom and prosperity in this country, before things get entirely out of hand." That boat has long sailed, and pitifully few have noticed.
