Michael Payne – The Specter of an American Police State Looms Over America

It’s coming, we don’t know when it will fully emerge, but it’s on the way. When this rampant societal violence, and especially these tragic mass shootings and slaughter of helpless, innocent Americans continues unabated, when this government refuses to address and attack the underlying causes, we will see the emergence of an American police state.
Right now we’re witnessing what might be described as a modern-day civil war within this increasingly divided society; it’s not one between regions of this country but, rather, one that pits Americans vs. their fellow Americans. President Abraham Lincoln once said, “A house divided against itself cannot stand.” That’s exactly what’s taking place in this country; because the more divided we become the more violence that is generated within our society.
