Soviet Americca

I have to decide, really soon, if I can actually go to Hawaii next May with my family. 

I am writing this at 2:30 AM because I just woke from a nightmare, an actual nightmare about going to Hawaii.  There was no fear of natural disasters or plane crashes or terrorists or anything like that.  I just had a nightmare about going through the GeTSApo Manned airport checkpoints.  I won't go into the details of the nightmare but it included being arrested and making a huge scene.

I have to decide if I'm willing to give up my rights as an American,no as a human being, in order to go to Hawaii with my family.  After this dream I'm not so certain that I can pull off the quiet sheep-shuffle through the GeTSApo checkpoint  that is required in order to travel to some states, like Hawaii, in today's Soviet Americca. 

Right now I'm still thinking I can manage it.  I'll take nothing with me.  I'll buy clothes there maybe, it's only a week so I could get a couple of pairs of shorts and shirts and flip-flops once I arrive on the island.  I can buy toiletries there as well, they must have a Dollar Tree there right?  I'll go with no bags, wearing flip-flops and shorts.  I'll duct tape my mouth shut... that's where it gets pretty scary though.  Maybe I need to duct tape my mouth shut and my arms to my sides as well, then I could go through without shouting subversive slogans like "The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized!"  I'm pretty sure that would get me arrested.  After all the constitution has quietly been abolished and actually is now illegal to think or talk about and traveling by air forces one to agree with this illegal and un-American usurpation of power and authority.

I don't know if I can do it or not.  I have to decide very soon.  I'm not happy to be awake at 2:30 AM writing this and even less happy about the idea of allowing the Gestapo to molest me and violate my fundamental rights as a human being.

I love Maui, I love my family, I love the Constitution and Bill of Rights of the United States of America.  I don't know if I can get through this without being arrested though... wish me luck!
