20 Examples of the Obama Administration Assault on Domestic Civil Liberties
I would say there have been some differences, but overall, the Obama administration is just as bad, if not worse. TSA is the most obvious example, but there are many others as the link shows. And I voted for the guy.
I did too.
And I really don't know how I'm going to vote next time. It's too depressing to think about.
I expected at least civil rights improvements from that jerk, what a disappointment. Didn't vote for him though. It was a heck of a choice, an overpromising liar (obama) or the crook (mccain). That is no choice. And if it comes down to Newton Grinchrich or Obama, I'm writing in ron paul.....
I urge everyone to write in another name. Both parties are corrupt. Both parties are the same. Stop letting them take a dump on you. Stop feeding the beast.
The survival of the U.S. Constitution is the number one issue in the next 3 elections. Everything else is a distraction. I'll be voting without regard to political party, simply analyzing the candidates' voting records with regard to the Rule of Law.
No more treasonous scum in the legislature!
Here's another sign of the times, as we saw during the break up of the OWS protestors.
Mayor Mike Bloomberg of NYC has his own army:
Oh great. We have a warlord. We've regressed from being a banana republic like Panama to being Afghanistan.
The best way to rob a bank is to own one ---William Black
Give a man a gun and he can rob a bank. Give a man a bank and he can rob the world.
Take a look at this article by the respected financial analyst And Barnhardt:
Our whole financial system and our paper dollar is based on confidence and requires confidence. That the powers that be would allow the above to happen shows that things might be crumbling faster than anyone realizes. Yet not a peep from these criminals to prepare the people.
Bloomberg had better not rely too much on his "army". They'll melt away in the night when he most needs them.
The Duchy of New York -- we'll start addressing Mayor Bloomberg as m'lord..
This is a very surreal thread.
That's a tougher question.
For example, Ron Paul is a very rule of law kind of guy - except when he believes the rule of law is wrong. He's very anti-choice and would love for Roe v. Wade to be gone and he'll do what he can to make that happen. 38 years of precedent gone. Poof. Don't know how he feels about birth control, but if Roe goes, it's only a short step to Griswold.
It's too bad because he's generally good on rights issues.
I'm voting for Jesse Ventura
paul, ventura, either one works for me. you're not going to ever get perfection; I'd settle for someone with basic honesty, required smarts, and respect for what belongs to other people (aka civil rights) . The system gives us obama or gingrich, or some other dweeb acceptable to the folks in the big financial circles currently directing policy. This is no different than the Politburo a number of years back, where they provided voters with their two choices, picked in advanced, non of whom differed from the other. And we think we're free....
I voted for Obama. I will not vote for him again. For the first time in 40 years, I'll be sitting out a presidential election.
I voted for him too, and am not going to do it again. I doubt I'll sit it out completely though. I'm going to look around for a candidate I can support, although I don't know who that is yet. Maybe I'll just do a write-in vote. In either case I can use my vote as a protest.
Vote me, just write in "Mike". It's the next best thing to electing "Bob".
If you promise to abolish the TSA on your first day of work, I'll do a write-in vote for you.
That would take an act of Congress, and I wouldn't dream of violating the Constitution. However, if such a bill is placed on my desk to sign on the first day, I will sign it.
On day two I will have every bozo working for the federal government renditioned to some former people's republic south of Russia.
I do hope you guys are more reliable than my friends turned out to be the last time I ran as a write-in candidate. I couldn't even get on the ballot for Latah County (ID) coroner because only two of my friends remembered to write me in. I needed 5 votes.
I think he's hands off people's personal lives. The whole abortion-as-birth control thing is losing its popularity. I'd love to bring back the stigma on unwed motherhood, but I'm not running for anything. Seriously, the more
I've looked, the more comfortable I am with him; besides, he wouldn't be King.
I'm completely with Elizabeth on the primacy of the Constitutional crisis.
Since Ron Paul is the only one against the Patriot Act, and for abolishing the TSA, I hope I can convince Dems to change registration and vote for him in the primaries b/c as long as he is in the race, these issues have life.
Even if you change back and ultimately vote for civil liberty nightmare Obama, or write-in Mike, consider keeping RP in the race. (Wouldn't it be kinda fun to mess with the GOP anyway?)
