Why should we worry about tyrants abroad who would like to strip us of our freedoms? Their ultimate goal is not to hijack our planes so they can fly them into buildings or set off bombs in densely populated areas. Would they be attempting to blow us up if we simply declared "we surrender, do with us as you wish"? No, if we did surrender to the jihadists, the end result would only be an expedited version of what this President is already orchestrating right before our eyes on a daily basis - with no opposition.
The NSA surveillance is tyrannical in and of itself. It is outrageous to claim it is a necessary tool to protect us from -outside- forces who ultimately wish to employ such methods against us (as government spying on citizens without warrants). When your Commander in Chief is using unaccountable federal agencies to behave like KGB or an Iranian dictator, what in the hell are we fighting for? Does anyone remember anymore?
"Oh, but they are only looking for certain key words that
terrorists would use." But since we are having such success, why not use it to stop other types of murder plots? Then once that succeeds, why wouldn't you use it to stop -robberies- by expanding targeted key words? Why not drug deals? Since it is so great and effective, why would you not expand such a noble program to target ALL potential crimes? Think of the good stories the media would produce for us telling us how wonderful it is to have the government saving, storing and listening in on ALL of our conversations and watching us ALL through the phone, lap-top or X-Box cameras!
Ultimately it will be used against everyone, especially those deemed political threats. This is where freedom becomes a difficult sell as Ron Paul asserted in his Farewell Address. When half of the citizens of this country adopt their positions based upon sound bytes or sarcastic remarks by Jon Stewart, the minority of Americans who actually care face an up-hill battle in overcoming the specious "if I'm not committing any crimes, I have nothing to worry about" platitudes.
had long been warned that we were just one ignorant generation away
from tyranny. Obama has the ears of millions of malcontents who have been created
through years of media, entertainment and public school indoctrination,
solidified by absent parents and broken homes. Like the serpent in the garden who whispered to Eve, he seduces them into believing his lies and surrendering our liberty in exchange for that which has for over a century brought unparalleled misery and death to the world.
There is no degree of protection worth surrendering our liberty and our dignity. I
would rather be 100% responsible for my own safety than be "protected"
by these aspiring tyrants who have hijacked our government. To hell with
the terrorists. Obama, Reid, Pelosi, Wasserman-Schultz, Boehner, McCain,
Lindsey Graham & even Mitch McConnell are
the greater immediate danger to our liberty. As formidable as a
terrorist plot can be to a few, the certain tyranny of these power
hungry traitors who collude with or appease Obama in his lawlessness are the greatest
threat to the whole.
Remember the great call of Patrick Henry "What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death! Many remember that quote. I highly recommend following the link and reading the entire speech. This reminder of the GREATNESS that once was in American government will not only move you to tears, it may strike you that the applicability of his appeal could be almost seamlessly interpolated (minus the word British) into an appeal to -wake up -the cowards leading the GOP today.
But "wake up" they will not do. Boehner, McConnell & "Lindsey McCain" have made it clear numerous times that there will be no opposition to this lawlessness until every one of them are removed. We must have a coup in our own party before we can -stop- the Marxist coup being carried out in our nation.
It is encouraging to see Ted Cruz describing and confronting this lawlessness without the usual euphemisms and diffidence portrayed by GOP cowards like John Boehner.
