The United States has devolved into a “soft-core totalitarian dictatorship” and other nations should begin to disassociate from it, according to an American activist and radio host in California.
Rodney Martin, the chairman of the All Nationalist Association and former US congressional staffer, made the remarks in a phone interview with Press TV on Wednesday, commenting on the approval of a bill that will allow resumption of the government’s sweeping surveillance program.
US President Barack Obama is expected to sign the USA Freedom Act after it was approved by the Senate 67-32 on Tuesday.
“The Senate approving the NSA surveillance, it’s not a surprise, even with Rand Paul’s filibuster, the minor amendments,” Martin said.
“The fact is that we are a surveillance society. There are no more civil liberties; there is no more right to privacy, regardless to the Constitution,” he added.
