Why Barack Obama might be more a threat to America’s constitutional freedoms than George W. Bush: Under Obama, the Democratic party line is now that we shouldn’t worry our little heads about these things.
The Republicans won’t take action on the power grab because it started under Bush. The Democrats won’t take action on the power grab because it’s expanded under Obama. Why does that leave us? United We Stand and Yes We Can are both looking the other way and pretending that nothing is happening.
Forget the so-called liberal media. They turned out to be just the Democratic media. Air America radio host Thom Hartmann, for example, isn’t saying a word about the revelations that Barack Obama is expanding, not reforming, George W. Bush’s Big Brother spy program, and targeting it at Americans. Hartmann will instead spend three hours discussing Islamic violence, Homeland Security investigations of small American Nazi groups, and credit cards.
The established political voices, left and right, seem quite happy with having a big government spying program set against Americans. Anyone who seeks to overturn the nasty totalitarian laws of the Bush-Obama era will need to cobble together a coalition of the minority of conscientious Democrats, the minority of conscientious Republicans, and the minority of independents who are actually paying attention.
