They carted people off 110,000 Americans to Manzanar prison camp for no other reason other than race. Yeah, that's what our government is capable of. This government which can't balance a budget, did build a concentration camp and methodically moved 110,000 people from the California coast into the middle of the desert.
This was on a small scale, but it doesn't mean it couldn't happen in the future on a larger scale given the right turmoil and circumstances. Tyranny relies on people like you to prosper.
Yes I have. That did happen, and it's easy to make the argument that it's a form of government tyranny all right.
Too bad the 2nd amendment wasnt already in place by 1942, because an armed populace would have been an effective deterrent against the gov doing stuff like that to it's own people.
