On Top of the World?

Yes, the military-industrial complex is right up there on top of the world, along with their friends the War Party and the Surveillance State. But pride cometh before a fall. The recent exposure of their global spying apparatus has shaken them to their core – and the backlash is threatening to topple them from their high perch.

We here at Antiwar.com waited for this day all of the 17 years we’ve been in existence. A popular movement is rising to throw out the snoops, defang the War Party, and restore the Constitution, and the liberty movement is on the ascendant.

But we can’t continue to educate the American people about the crimes of their government without your financial help.

We’ve depended on donations from our readers since the very beginning, and they’ve sustained us through every crisis. Now the big crisis of the American republic – the emergence of a police state – is staring us in the face. We need your help more than ever. Please make your tax-deductible contribution to Antiwar.com today – and help us bring down the Regime.
