When the government fears the people, we have freedom. When the people fear the government, we have tyranny. Anyone, here, fear the government?

Our government is rotton, to the core. The president has made it clear that he despises our Constitution, and the Supreme Court has had to reign him in six times. I fear for our country.

  • We have an unconstitutional bigot as president who allows the assination of Americans. Of course I'm concerned!

  • What most people don't realize, is that there are laws in place that will allow the President to assume complete control of our country, in the event of an emergency. No Constitution. No Congress. Just the President and his lackey's. There is no firm definition of what constitutes said emergency either. You should be worried.

  • They are violating our rights guaranteed by 2nd, 4th and 5th amendment. They use our money to kill people in middle east.

@Fight4Liberty And we are just one crisis away from martial law. Once enacted, there is no limit to how long the president can keep it going. Our Constitution will be suspended, and Congress will be disbanded. Most people have no idea how fragile our freedom is.

I am worried about martial law, however, I differ in some opinions. Most American soldiers voted for Paul's stance on the Iran/iraq war, which shows they haven't been entirely brainwashed by the media's propoganda. I am not worried about an American soldier takeover as they are some of our feircest protectors of the Constitution. I am, however, terrified of our government's ties with other countries and the drone technology they are equipped with. For example, Obama had signed legislation/an executive order allowing the invasion of 15,000 Russian troops in the case of an civil unrest. I say this with a concience fully aware of the police brutality and overlooking of the Constitution.

Forgot to mention in a 20 to 30 year time span, I will be worried of an American takeover.

You're forgetting about Obama's private army. They are not military. He has also sacked over 100 senior officers, in the military, and replaced them with his own people. And what about those billions of rounds of ammunition (Hollow Points, btw) the government purchased? And has anyone else seen police cruisers with the words homeland security on them, in their towns? They're out there. The takeover could happen tomorrow.

This is some grade A+ conspiracy theory.

Discomfiting, I'd be more than happy to provide sources to back what I said.

The right wing always says this about the left wing. The left wing always says this about the right wing.

When the government fears the people, they won't have power. They'll end up getting even more restricted in their personal lives because fascism would be installed in order to control the populations.

"This is some grade A+ conspiracy theory." I'm sure something similar was said about people who warned us about Hitler. Look what happened. The price of freedom is eternal vigilance. Maybe I'm wrong. Maybe I'm not. Unfortunately, there are too many people that think it could never happen. That's exactly why it WILL happen. History teaches this. People who don't zealously guard their freedom will lose it. We're asleep at the wheel and heading for the cliff.
