Too Many Cameras?

In a recent Rasmussen poll taken after the Boston bombings, people were asked about the use of security cameras. Did they think that the government should add more cameras in public places? The poll showed that 70% of Americans favored public surveillance cameras.

The government argues that they will and do increase public safety and help to catch suspects involved in crimes. Of course, the government wants to add more and more cameras and use their facial recognition software along with them. Give the government an inch and they will want more and more.

Not all are happy: 23% said that cameras violate their privacy. The believe that the government should stay out of their lives. Others believe that the government worries too much about public safety. Some argue that personal freedom and personal privacy is being destroyed with more cameras. They remind proponents that George Orwell's 1984 predicted the obsessive use of cameras by the government when he wrote his novel in the 1930s.

Where do you stand? Do you think cameras make YOU more safe?

Who Do You Fear More?

Are you afraid of terrorists? Many people are and have no qualms about giving up their freedoms to be "protected" by the government. These individuals would rather give the government MORE POWER over their lives for a little more protection. TSA at airports are the classic example. Ever since the shoe bomber, air travelers have given-up freedoms to be body searched. This has resulted in an over-zealous approach by TSA employees and numerous complaints of aggressive and often unlawful behavior on their part. As a consequence, groping and excessive body searches caused many TSA employees to be charged with harassment or even sexual harassment.

But what about those who aren't that willing to give-up their freedoms? These people believe that then you give-up freedom to the government for ANY reason, you will NEVER get them back. The less government intervention, the better! They know that when you allow the government more powers they will want even more power over your lives. These people believe that too much power by the government is becoming a BAD thing. It always has.

A current survey indicates that since the Boston bombing, many people are changing their minds about the government and their "willingness" to protect us all. When Americans were asked the question "Would you be willing to give up some of your personal freedom in order to reduce the threat of terrorism?" the majority responded "NO."

They saw the government close-down the cities of Boston and Watertown. They saw the door-to-door warrant less searches performed by gun point. They saw people ordered out of their homes. They saw people being frisked on their front porches. They saw people being handcuffed. They saw law-abiding Americans being detained by ARMED SWAT teams. After seeing these actions taken by the overstepping government, many people began to change their attitudes about giving government MORE control. They began realizing that these were violations of the 4th Amendment. Even LEFT-WING Bill Maher noticed these violations and condemned them!

Isn't it time to reflect and reevaluate YOUR position? Do you believe that the government will actually come and help protect you? That's NOT what the Boston/Watertown examples show you! People also learned the hard way in Hurricane Katrina. The government came door-to-door of the survivors and confiscated all of their firearms. This can happen to you. It's becoming more prevalent.

Think about it. It's time to fear YOUR government and time to push back. The people in Watertown, Massachusetts should file a class-action suit regarding the government breach of the 4th Amendment - Illegal Search and Seizure!

Bet you never heard about the 46 TRAITORS we have in our US Senate. These are the people who would rather give-up American sovereignty to the United Nations. Here are their names:

  • Baldwin (D-WI)
  • Baucus (D-MT)
  • Bennet (D-CO)
  • Blumenthal (D-CT)
  • Boxer (D-CA)
  • Brown (D-OH)
  • Cantwell (D-WA)
  • Cardin (D-MD)
  • Carper (D-DE)
  • Casey (D-PA)
  • Coons (D-DE)
  • Cowan (D-MA)
  • Durbin (D-IL)
  • Feinstein (D-CA)
  • Franken (D-MN)
  • Gillibrand (D-NY)
  • Harkin (D-IA)

  • Udall (D-CO)
  • Warner (D-VA)
  • Warren (D-MA)
  • Whitehouse (D-RI)
  • Wyden (D-OR)

These people are TRAITORS to the US Constitution. Isn't it ironic that they are mostly Democrats! Remember this at re-election time. They have proven this by their support of a treaty that negates US sovereignty. Let them all know because they will be voting on this issue AGAIN!

On April 2, 2013 the UN passed the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT). The US representative voted IN FAVOR if it despite the fact that it NEGATES the 2nd Amendment. Obama is slated to sign it  on June 3, 2013. Of course he will, like any good anti-gunner.

The next step to throw away the 2nd Amendment is to have the US Senate approve the treaty. Once they do, the only way to revoke it is by a Constitutional amendment which is highly unlikely.

If you care about America's sovereignty or care about the 2nd Amendment, you need to let your Senators know your position.
