Many Conservatives (and Republicans and maybe even some Democrats) were extremely concerned throughout Mr. Obama's 2 year campaign to reach the high office of President of the United States of America for the "simple" reason that it was very clear to many that the road Mr. Obama would travel and have our Country follow would lead nowhere but to self-destruction through Socialism.
As has become painfully clear in the very first months of Mr. Obama's reign, the fear of Socialism was the least of our concerns. Little could anyone have known -- despite his writings and expressed philosophies and opinions -- that Mr. Obama's government would jump right over Socialism to land directly into Neo-nazism.
The government put in place, rather, in the process of being put in place showed its true colors fairly quickly; the colors have merely gotten truer and truer . . . and they are not the true colors of the Republic of the United States of America.
What is even more frightening to me is that not too many of We the People are reacting; too many of We the People are maintaining the complacency which has brought us to this frightening moment. Above all other frightening aspects, too many of We the People simply do not seem to care! Not only are We the People fighting the ever-tightening noose and the ever-closer encroachment of government, but we have the ever-present danger of the small-minded ignorant with which to contend -- also in government, also in positions of power! And too many of We the People do not seem to care.
It has become more and more apparent as the first weeks of Mr. Obama's reign roll by that the majority of We the People have truly been bought by the change promised by Mr. Obama. Unfortunately, not enough of We the People have yet noticed that the "paid for" part of the equation is a bill from which we will not receive any change other than that which will end our Country as we know The Republic of the United States of America to be.
An excellent example of the type of "change" that has begun is reported in Townhall.com. As an aside . . . a significant question would be to ask how many of the so-called "mainstream media" had the honesty to report this? Should any of We the People still have any doubts about Mr. Obama's governments intent -- or should any be working very hard (with the ubiquitous assistance of the so-called Mainstream Media) to keep their heads in the sand, perhaps these recent developments will bring clarity as well as fear to their thoughts.

From a Townhall.com Urgent Report:
A customer service representative at The Patriot Depot . . . received a call from Rosemary in Ball, Louisiana alerting him that her brother-in-law was stopped by small town Louisiana police and detained by the roadside for half an hour. A background check was conducted to determine whether he was a member of an “extremist” group. Why? Her brother-in-law (name not disclosed for privacy) had purchased a conservative “Don’t Tread on Me” bumper sticker from The Patriot Depot and displayed it on his car.
The bumper sticker is based on the famous flag designed by American Revolution era general and statesman Christopher Gadsden. The yellow flag featured a coiled diamondback rattlesnake ready to strike, with the slogan “Don’t Tread on Me!” underneath it. Benjamin Franklin helped make the rattlesnake a symbol of Americans’ reluctance to quarrel but vigilance and resolve in defense of their rights. By 1775 when Gadsden presented his flag to the commander-in-chief of the Navy, the rattlesnake was a symbol of the colonies and of their need to unite in defense of threats to their God-given and inherited rights. The flag and the bumper sticker symbolize American patriotism, the need to defend Americans’ rights, and resistance to tyranny’s threats to American liberty. Those threats included—and include—illegal taxation, profanation of Americans’ rights, and violation of the fundamental principles of American law.
The notorious Department of Homeland Security memo, which was apparently based on the infamous Missouri State Police Report that described supporters of presidential candidates Bob Barr, Ron Paul, and Chuck Baldwin as “militia”-type potential extremists and potential terrorists, is not the first effort of leftist radicals to slander their political opponents as “extremists.” Some observers have noted that similar “reports” emerged during the Clinton administration. But “liberals” and other leftists have been calling defenders of traditional American limited, constitutional government, free enterprise, and individual liberty “extremists” since at least the 1964 election.
The political left’s attempts to establish a false equivalence between genuine left wing extremists and those who oppose the left’s assault on our culture, law, and liberty is more than propaganda to fool the ignorant and manipulate public opinion. Combined with the power of government, it is an attempt to harass, intimidate, and silence all political opposition—and probably an attempt to demonize them as a prelude to governmental oppression and persecution. Keep in mind that the First Amendment states:
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."
Small town police misled by phony left wing “reports” are bad enough. Federal government agencies and their armed agents under the direction of leftist radicals are exponentially worse. They will tread on us. The time has come to let our voices be heard!
