"I don't think there is a chosen nominee from the Republican Party," he added. "I don't think there is somebody who is secretly decided to be the candidate. This will be a rigorous debate. It will extend from Iowa to New Hampshire to South Carolina to around America."

Jeff Crouere-Louisiana PoliticsThe police state is alive in well in the United States of America. At airports, travelers are subjected to naked body scanners and groping from TSA agents. The Patriot Act was just renewed for several more months, despite concerns from civil libertarians among others.


Everyday, more surveillance cameras are installed in communities throughout this nation. Government officials are spying on citizens in the name of fighting crime. Despite the invasive nature of the cameras, violent crime is still a major problem in many of the cities with a large number of cameras. For example, while New Orleans utilized crime cameras in many neighborhoods, the city was named the Murder Capital of the nation.
