    Guys, its starting. Cause the TSA any bother at the porno scanner or groping and you will be labeled a "domestic extremist." The anti-freedom groups have stated that they want these lists to be used to limit gun ownership. Scary stuff.

    Also, remember to click on all the blue links in the article.

    Congressman Ron Paul on the House Floor gave clear, vocal support to opt-out day. I guess he's in trouble with Napolitano now.

    Question is, does either she or Obama have the courage, honesty, and integrity to tell Rep. Paul to his face that he's a domestic extremist?

    In case you didn't know, Ron Paul supporters were automatically put on the list, and a few of them have had some pretty bad things happen to them because of their support. You are de facto a domestic extremist if you support Dr. Paul.

    There is some good documentation around the net if you look hard enough. If I run into it I'll post it.

    Thanks EJR. In case anyone out there reading this had any doubt, I believe that Dr. Paul is a Great American Patriot!

    Why aren't the TSA searches against our 4th amendment rights? Why isn't a warrant required to search us like that? You know, I don't mind going through the scanner things at the court house, but the TSA is overstepping the bounds of decency. That's why I'll be driving or taking a train if I need to travel.

    Airports are just the warm-up to get the sheep used to having their rights and decency violated.

    Trains and buses are next if they are allowed to go forward with their agenda.

    I didn't hear this quote from BIG SIS, but something very similar was chimed on Fox News from the Miami Head of TSA. So, yeah, the government is trying to lable those who don't sit down and shut up as terrorist. You dissint, then you end up in the guelogs.

    :shock:

    The assertion that an opt-out passenger will be considered a domestic terrorist is a game-changer. Between the veiled threat of taking away gun rights as a consequence of refusing to have others trampled and the announcement of a proposal to introduce invasive security practices on trains, boats, and subway systems, I'm left with a sinking sensation of dread. The police state has just taken off the gloves and is no longer in the dark lurking in the shadows but fearlessly out in the open. And it is playing for keeps.

    This administration is on track to become a landmark in the hisory of America.

    In less than 2 years, they have dismissed the 4th Amendment. If we have the audacity to protest these violations we get a nifty place on "the list", handily squashing our 1st Amendment rights.
    And... a place on said list could clearly be used as a simply method to invalidate our 2nd Amendment rights.

    That has got to be a record, a true landmark in American history... and think - they have
    two more years to run... imagine what they can do.

    I completely agree with moga as well.

    However, this all is just coming to a head right now with a president that believes in the Socialist Police State. This has been in the works for decades. Its called Incrementalism. They did this tiny little 4th amendment violation... people grumbled, but forgot about it... then they did it again, so on and so forth, and nobody said a thing. If the government keeps this up, and doesn't give in to pressure, we will forget about it as well, and this will become common place. Once the children born today, are used to this level of constitutional violation and intimidation, it will become common place for them as well.

    That's how the Overton Window and Incrementalism works. Its worked before in our history... within the last century.

    The TSA has waived civil liberties and is now keeping a list of political enemies, yet it is still wrong to compare them to Nazis?

    You know, EJR, it's things like this that make me want to go up to my wife and yell, "See!? THIS is why you and I should talk about this EVERY day!" She doesn't like to talk about it much, maybe once a week max, because she "can't do anything about it" and because it "makes her mad and she doesn't have time for that". I'm sure that's what most people say. I think we've come to the point where it's pay attention, or you and your children will suffer. In actuality, it came to that point generations ago.

    Considering all the freedoms we just "won" in GA legislation, I don't much like traveling out of state anyway. Why would I want to leave a state that now allows me to carry almost everywhere I go?

    I don't think it has anything to do with it being wrong to compare them, its the fact that these people have the "It can't happen here" mentality. As if somehow America is not subject to the dangers of an all powerful government taking away the rights of its citizens.

    Also, people think that there is no way American's economy or our dollar can crash, as if the theories of economics do not apply here. Its complete madness, both of them.

    People need to stop being :sleep: and :sheep: There is no magic bubble around the US that will keep us safe. It can happen here and it will if more people don't wake up. All of my family and friends are still asleep as well.

    Rah45, I completely agree. Its very uncomfortable for people to wake up, look around, and really see what is happening here. I understand that. I understand that people do not want to come to grips with the reality of our situation. They don't want to admit it, and they think that We The People cannot do anything about it anyway. There is no magic bubble around us. Bad things can and will happen in America if We The People do not wake up and stand up to the people in power.

    My wife is starting to wake up, thank goodness, it only took three years. Now she voted for the first time, and I'll be glad to say she got to vote an almost completely Libertarian ticket the first time she voted. Not that voting is going to fix this thing. 95% of America is still very much asleep.

    I agree. The downward spiral seemed to start with the passage of the PATRIOT ACT by W.

    Our nation has a virus. Where's McCarthy when you need him?


    Cliff notes, (incremental normalization).

    I'd say it's even worse. Within a so-called "sterile zone" (sterilized of individual rights), one no longer has ownership of their very body. If you'll notice, there's also an effort underway to expand the size of that "sterile zone".

    It is well-established that there is no obligation to physically protect an individual (unless they are in custody, that is, are a ward of the state). There is obviously no longer any obligation to carry out the empowering charter, which is to protect the rights of the individual. The "checks and balances" have been removed and the empowered entity is concerned only with expanding its own interests, power and influence.

    The Vault of Liberty has been raided and "golden prize" of "power granted to protect the individual" has been stolen, melted down and re-fashioned into the iron hammer of tyranny. Power corrupts and we see the results. Even Supreme Court Justices publicy state that they should use the power of their Bench to mold society into what they think is best rather than carry out their sacred Duty, and no one is outraged.

    I want my Federal government back.
