    Lockheed and Grumman are definitively heading towards this direction with their new drones. What's new? Their autonomy. One will be powered and fed by a laser beam and the other the X-47B will have a programmed memory. Will they be able to differenciate a civilian from a military target? A man from a child? Or who gives a F--K?
    As those weapons are becoming more sophisticated, their cost will be on our dime in the name of what? Our security? Our defense? Or their private interests?

      I believe so.  We will have designed battlefields, and then robots will fight it out, and the winner will have to pay or something.  I don't know how it will exactly work, but I think it's already headed that way.

    If you invent a widget the US military will figure out a way to turn it into a weapon. The psychopath industry.

    Aquarian Age officially, officially, officially starts Dec 23rd. That should bring about change, but the powers that be will fight it tooth and nail to the
    demise.

    If it's synonymous of fight, I will be on the first line. I've never experienced revolutions but if I have to go through one, I will. I am fed of policies taken by the government in my name! I am fed up that innocent people Muslim or not are killed in my name for their interests. I am fed up of our government not to listen to what I have to say! I have ENOUGH of being manipulated!

      No you would be fighting programmed drones. Machines are not infaillible. If you are the kind to give up quickly, I am not!

    My age has no relevance in this matter. Had you read any of my answers, you would have known. But since you and I don't get along, I prefer not. But I am definitively younger than you.

    It would be a radical change. No more lobbies implying no corporate pressure on congress. Limited mandate for any politicians to reduce their personal influence (will be reelected upon his results). Prioritary budget on education, healthcare and social program. Only companies employing American labor will dispose of tax reductions. Any outsourced companies will be heavily taxed on the American soil (to the point that their product won't be competitive with the ones manufactured locally).
    Abolition of all the Patriotic act and bills that limits the freedom of any American.
    Limited budget for the Pentagon, CIA, NSA... No more loopholes for corporations especially the oil industry. Any offshore accounts will be taxed... Develop economical partnership with the world. No international military involvement unless the army of a country is attacking us (not only rumors like the "Iraqi weapons of mass destruction" trick! Suppression of the federal reserve, the IMF, UNO... Create an organization that will regulate and control banks or limit their cash power etc...
