As near as I can tell, the only difference between Obama and Chavez is that the latter actually believes in domestic oil exploration.

Sadly, half the people in this country think that’s just fine as long as you’re telling lies about the Obama. But its okay to tell lies about any conservative.

Folks, we’d better get ready to stand and fight ‘cause tough times is a comin’. A complete monetary collapse may be the only thing that saves us.

Come on people, wise up for God’s sake! If YOU are not going to fight for your 1st Amendment Right, who do you think will? And by the way (this is a pop quiz), what Right do you think protects the other rights?

Why is it that many FReepers see the truth and so many others have scales over their eyes?

I have many Obama-loving friends. (I work in what used to be called "show business"). When I asked them about the KMOV report, one replied
"*gasp* How dare the Obama campaign ask local law makers to uphold the law! Why.. that's unAmerican! We can't have these "truth squads" roaming the streets, and charging people who are printing lies with libel. We may as well be Communist Russia at this point. Its a good thing there is a candidate running for office who just will not stand for liars being held accountable for their lies!".
Another simply said
"Proverbs 19:9. Seems pretty clear cut to me..."
(Proverbs 19:9 reads " A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that speaketh lies shall perish".)

Please keep in mind that these friends of mine are not fringy wackos. They do not attend protest rallies or belong to left-wing organizations. They are not starry-eyed college kids. These folks are average, property-owning, job-holding, educated, child-rearing Americans.

Based on their responses, I'd guess that the public is solidly behind Obama's call for government officials to use the power of the State against people who are deemed by them to be lying about Obama.

The two people in the video are the St. Louis County Prosecutor, Bob McCullough (Democrat) tne the other is also a Democrat representing the City of St. Louis.

I would suspect one of the largest private PAC organizers for Obama in St. Louis has put pressure on both Bob McCullough and Mayor Francis Slay to get this “Truth Squad” accomplished.

Follow the money.

This is only the beginning folks. If he gets in ( and he probably will) all anti Obama talk will be suppressed. The Fairness Doctrine will be #1 on his list. rush , Savage , Levin and the likes will be off that air in a New York minute.
Places like FR will be targeted .Think I’m kidding ? Just wait .

If anyone catches Obama in a lie can that person press charges? Based on the logic of his campaign it appears one could...but of course that would be slander to point out a lie and would be arrested before pointing out said lie.

Think this is bad,wait and see what happens if Obama wins. He will not tolerate any criticism so there goes talk radio. The strange thing is the very ones that are supporting him to the hilt (MSM) will be the first to come under control. Cannot let any false information get out there so control of all news will be necessary.

I notice that my left wing friends that have been screaming about loosing their rights under Bush are very quite and in fact will not respond to this. What is happening is beyond sad.

Maybe there is some kind of ‘subliminal’ advertising going on (apart from the odious, overt kind) with folks who watch a lot of movies and TV. I don’t watch television but rarely but a hell of a lot of people do, and it seems like they are more or less brainwashed.

Someone should run an ad saying Obama is showing a forged birth certificate on his website then invite them to prosecute or disprove them.

Alternatively, run an ad claiming Obama is communist who has been the Protege of William Ayers since meeting him in 1983 in New York where they were both at college in the same neighborhood.

Have him disprove that one too!

You need to find some friends that understand the difference between civil and criminal law, and God's judgment versus the judgment of partisan political hacks.

Legal action by a prosecutor for non-adherance to partisan talking points warranted a trip to the concentration camps in Nazi Germany for a breech of ‘political justice’.

That shit ain't gonna fly here.

Right now it is those Republicans who are standing in the way of the White House and Democrats literally selling your children’s and grandchildren’s future down the toilet.

The Democrats have, in this proposed bailout, piled all kinds of payoffs to groups like ACORN, a criminal enterprise that is supposed to register potential voters. Dozens of ACORN employees have been convicted or indicted for election fraud. And who is their lawyer? Non other than Senator Barack Obama, whose campaign was caught laundering money to ACORN through another company in violation of federal campaign laws.

The Obama campaign is now under investigation by the FBI and the FEC. Not surprising, the mainstream media is ignoring that investigation and if it wasn’t for Free Republic non of us would even know that investigation exists!

Gov. Blunt Statement on Obama Campaign’s Abusive Use of Missouri Law Enforcement

JEFFERSON CITY - Gov. Matt Blunt today issued the following statement on news reports that have exposed plans by U.S. Senator Barack Obama to use Missouri law enforcement to threaten and intimidate his critics.

“St. Louis County Circuit Attorney Bob McCulloch, St. Louis City Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce, Jefferson County Sheriff Glenn Boyer, and Obama and the leader of his Missouri campaign Senator Claire McCaskill have attached the stench of police state tactics to the Obama-Biden campaign.

“What Senator Obama and his helpers are doing is scandalous beyond words, the party that claims to be the party of Thomas Jefferson is abusing the justice system and offices of public trust to silence political criticism with threats of prosecution and criminal punishment.

“This abuse of the law for intimidation insults the most sacred principles and ideals of Jefferson. I can think of nothing more offensive to Jefferson’s thinking than using the power of the state to deprive Americans of their civil rights. The only conceivable purpose of Messrs. McCulloch, Obama and the others is to frighten people away from expressing themselves, to chill free and open debate, to suppress support and donations to conservative organizations targeted by this anti-civil rights, to strangle criticism of Mr. Obama, to suppress ads about his support of higher taxes, and to choke out criticism on television, radio, the Internet, blogs, e-mail and daily conversation about the election.

“Barack Obama needs to grow up. Leftist blogs and others in the press constantly say false things about me and my family. Usually, we ignore false and scurrilous accusations because the purveyors have no credibility. When necessary, we refute them. Enlisting Missouri law enforcement to intimidate people and kill free debate is reminiscent of the Sedition Acts - not a free society.”
