James Bovard, author of Attention Deficit Democracy, discusses the farcical Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board, the failure of U.S. courts to check rampant government criminality, the “battered citizen syndrome” that leaves Americans too scared of external threats to protest their lost liberties and why 2012 may be the last chance to elect Ron Paul and stop our national suicide.

MP3 here. (23:00)

James Bovard is a contributor to The American Conservative magazine and policy advisor at The Future of Freedom Foundation. He is the author of Attention Deficit Democracy, The Bush Betrayal and many other books.

  1. Even if Ron Paul would win the presidency the elites would steal it from him.

  2. To fight back on battered citizen syndrome, make fun of them. For example, more U.S.ians died of dog bites last year than of terrorism (25). So my suggestion is that we replace dogs with terrissts as man's best friend.

  3. If Ron Paul won the presidency it would mean the voters had already awakened and committed to a new paradigm, freedom instead of bureaucratism. the elite would be out of work since they have no productive skills.

  4. Here's liberman saying relax, it won't be used every day, "national security", china has it so should we…. what an ass-hat.

  5. Bovard's a doughty fighter for liberty, that's for damn sure. (Horton mentions Bovard's book "Attention Deficit Democracy." I've read it, and it's first-rate.)

    Of course the Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board is bullshit. Anything created by government usually is.

    A "court of law" is supposed to be a place where the individual's rights are asserted and vindicated. Today, American courts are part of the police state.
