captain America the winter soldier comes to mind every time I read about the drone use only being used against the "bad people".
The question that should be asked is who is defining who the bad people are. Much like the film, evil groups would decide anyone that could be a threat to their illegal actions could be designated a future target.
if hundred of millions of Americans don't care enough to do something over their government blatantly telling them they have no rights then nothing will make people do something about the ever constant and escalating abuses by those setting themselves up to rule your country like royalty over the serfs.
some people are still naïve enough to believe if they have done nothing wrong, no harm shall come to them by the police , DEA, DHS etc. They are the goods guys, they would never act illegally towards an innocent law abiding citizen.
haven't you seen the whole spiel the DHS has been going on lately about how only terrorists carry and pay in cash. That if you see someone making purchases over 100 dollars in cash you should report it because "SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING"
