Obama spies, freedom dies ~ By Roger Hedgecock

Roger Hedgecock is trying to find out why there's no outrage from the left regarding Obama's abuse of power and the Constitution's 4th Amendment rights. As we know, the liberals' favorite talking points prior to Barack Obama's inauguration was how George W. Bush was violating our rights with the Patriot act and the water-boarding of several terrorists. But now? Roger writes:
But now that Obama has made a virtual American KGB out of the Justice Department, the FBI, and the Department of Homeland Security, Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the CDC, such spying and tracking is becoming standard operating procedure. Where is the liberal angst and outrage? All you hear is crickets chirping.

Liberals screamed like mashed cats when George Bush championed the Patriot Act in the wake of the Sept. 11 attacks, predicting that precious constitutional protections would be routinely violated by the Bush government.

It turns out liberals were right. But not about George Bush. He used the Patriot Act to monitor communications and transactions of suspected terrorists – particularly when the terrorist was, say, calling Pakistan.

Liberal fears that this power would be abused and turned on ordinary American citizens has turned out to be right – in the Obama administration.

During the 2008 campaign, Obama promised a domestic security force equal in funding and force to the Pentagon. This is one promise he is keeping.

The 67,000 strong Transportation Security Administration has morphed into taking nude pictures and/or engaging in full genital groping of airline passengers in the name of safety.
