Our forefathers intended to establish a nation where liberty and freedom would be maximized?

There has been no society in the history of the world that has ever been 100% safe. No matter how much money the federal government spends on “homeland security”, the truth is that bad things will still happen. Our world is a very dangerous place and it is becoming increasingly unstable. The federal government could turn the entire country into one giant prison camp, but that would still not keep us safe. It is inevitable that bad stuff will happen in life. But we have a choice. We can choose to live in fear or we can choose to live as free men and women. Our forefathers intended to establish a nation where liberty and freedom would be maximized. But today we are told that we have to give up our liberties and our freedoms and our privacy for increased security. But is such a trade really worth it? Just think of the various totalitarian societies that we have seen down throughout history. Have any of them ever really thrived? Have their people been happy? Unfortunately, the U.S. federal government has decided that the entire country needs to be put on lock down. Nearly everything that we do today is watched and tracked, and personal privacy is rapidly becoming a thing of the past.

    Our forefathers would be ashamed of us if they see how far the beautiful country they helped establish has fallen. All the laws and regulations (many of which are unconstitutional) have made us virtual slaves.The government,at the end of the day, does all this to protect themselves not us. Besides establishing the original federal government, the U.S. Constitution placed built in limits to try to prevent what we have today. It worked for a long time but has been undermined and we all will suffer as a result.

    Barack Obama recently updated an old executive order that has been around for decades that would enable him to take charge of all food, all energy, all health resources and all transportation resources in the United States with the stroke of a pen. This new update would allow him to do it even in "non-emergency" situations.

    The following is what U.S. Representative Kay Granger recently had to say about this executive order....

    This means all of our water resources, construction services and materials (steel, concrete, etc.), our civil transportation system, food and health resources, our energy supplies including oil and natural gas – even farm equipment – can be taken over by the President and his cabinet secretaries. The Government can also draft U.S. citizens into the military and force U.S. citizens to fulfill "labor requirements" for the purposes of "national defense." There is not even any Congressional oversight, only briefings are required.
    Later on in her letter, Representative Granger even used the phrases "martial law" and "government takeover" to describe the power that Barack Obama potentially has under this executive order....

    It is still unclear why this order was signed now, and what the consequences are for our nation – especially during times of peace. ...

    It is still unclear why this order was signed now, and what the consequences are for our nation – especially during times of peace. This type of Martial Law imposes a government takeover on U.S. citizens that is typically reserved for national emergencies, not in a time of relative peace.

    Look, every society needs some level of security. There are always bad guys out there that want to harm innocent people.

    But in the United States we must demand that those in charge of our security do their jobs in a way that does not compromise our dignity, our liberties or our freedoms.

    Does having TSA thugs touch the private parts of old women and young children before they get on their flights keep us any safer?

    Of course not.

    But it does move our country in a very dangerous direction.

    The reality is that this "Big Brother control grid" that is being constructed all around us is expanding in a thousand different ways.

    For example, a new bill before the U.S. Congress would require black box data recorders to be installed in all new vehicles starting in 2015.

    Even when you are sitting at home you are still being watched and monitored in countless ways.

    For example, every single call you make on your cell phone is intercepted and monitored by the government.

    Your Internet activity is tracked and monitored by a whole host of government agencies as well. If you doubt this, just read this article.

    Now CISPA would expand government surveillance of the Internet even further.

    Frightening stuff, eh?

    I want you to imagine a scenario for a moment. Imagine that the gove...

    I want you to imagine a scenario for a moment. Imagine that the government assigned two "watchers" to you that followed you everywhere you went and stared directly into your face the entire time.

    Would you feel comfortable?

    Why not?

    You don't have anything to hide, do you?

    Well, of course the truth is that none of us would like having our privacy constantly invaded. It is not pleasant to constantly feel like you are being watched.

    That is why all of these new "security measures" are so alarming. A system is being set up where all of us are being constantly watched and monitored 24 hours a day.

    And most Americans have no idea how fast the transition to full martial law could potentially be.

    Good Morning Rebel, Here's another thought...how many TV's/DVD Players/Game Boxes, etc, in our homes, already have a hidden camera in them? Gov watching every move you make within your own home. Not at all paranoid, got nothing to hide...just saying!
