Well, here it comes: criminal prosecution for denying there is “climate change” all because this will be the next great tax to match Obamacare. Forget freedom of speech, that is following the 4th and 5th Amendments down the drain. We are heading into that dark, deep hole of authoritarian regimes.

Trump may want to build a wall to prevent migrants from entering. The rest of Congress is quietly building a wall to trap us inside. FATCA has eliminated the ability to have any account outside the USA, even for legitimate small businesses.

Law schools these days are putting out a crop of lawyers who are trained in how to circumvent the Constitution, not defend it.
