Fearing Our Government

Of the dozens of reasons to be concerned about the ever-growing and unchecked power of the federal government under President Barack Obama, the upcoming assault against conservative talk radio may surpass them all.

It's not enough that liberals dominate the executive and legislative branches, liberals are poised to control the judiciary, and, at liberals' direction, government is absorbing ownership and control of large chunks of the private sector. They must also shut up the opposition.

We have genuine cause for alarm on multiple fronts -- and actual alarm indeed exists among increasing numbers of people, not all of whom are predisposed to excitability.

The government has declared war on innocent life in the womb in the name of "free choice." It is spending unconscionable amounts of money it doesn't have and can't possibly acquire without taxing the primary producers in this nation into abject servitude. It's set to impose "cap and trade" taxes in the name of protecting an environmental threat that exists mostly in the data-resistant prisons of their ideological minds, which will yield no environmental benefit but will cause irreparable economic harm.

It has passed constitutionally repugnant and morally odious legislation, carving out new crimes for violent acts motivated by "hate" against certain protected groups. Neither military veterans nor conservative males are among the protected groups, but pedophiles very well may be. The proscribed "hate" under the statute may not be "hate" at all, but mere political or theological disagreement with the view of the dominant media culture and the ruling class on, for example, the normalcy of homosexual behavior. Meanwhile this same ruling class and its enablers, who are so selectively indignant about certain majority opinions they mischaracterize as "hate," openly bask in the kind of behavior no one can rationally dispute as hateful at the ....

When the government fears the people, you have liberty.
When the people fear the government, you have tyranny.

Methinks this is the line in the sand. If they cross it, we’ll begin to see rebellion.

In my 70 years on this planet I have never been so scared of what is happening to my country. Zero has 3 1/2 years left to turn the USA into a dictator state and he is well on the way.

The unanswered question is, what are the well-heeled talk radio hosts behind the mics going to do about it??

I'd be more than happy to march arm-in-arm with them on Washington, but have no intention of fighting their battles for them.

We fight together and fight to win, or divided and who knows what...

Do you have doubts about IF they will fight.

I don’t. I’m looking forward to the fight.

It’s gonna be a doozy!

I hope I can play a part.

The scariest thing is that so many sheeple line up and compete to be "good Germans Americans" under the new regime...Goebbels would be SO proud of our media. And Hitler would be envious of Obama's control over the ignorant masses. Barry just keeps pushing and pushing, he obviously WANTS us to break...after all, wouldn't that be the crisis of his dreams? Just imagine what he could do with that one. COME ON 2010...collectivism meets its END!!!

I think I remember Mark Levin saying he wouldn’t go down without a fight many months ago...

Yes. They certainly talk the talk, but would they walk the walk?

He is walking a thin line now. The military is onto him and they are not happy. I think if this continues, there will be a fight. I don’t know how it will start but I suspect once it does it’s going to be real ugly. I suspect the local LEO will pretty much stand by their communities. The military will split, most defending the people. There may have to be a military coup. God I hope I am wrong.
Sad that our first black president had to be an evil, American hating son of a b*tch.

This is going to be a war where the winner will win by using the right words.

There is no doubt of the outcome, only the length and intensity of the battle.

Since the other side is essentially unarmed, it will be a short war, with talk radio more popular than ever.

Um, they are fighting your fight for you right now, and they are putting themselves at least at some risk doing it, whether from zero’s admin (see Rush’s audit battles, let alone these new laws) or from crazy nutjob brownshirts.

Or are you asking for more before you would pitch in because they are evil “well-heeled” rich? Maybe zero’s class warfare agitprop is affecting even some conservative freeper such as you?

The “hosts behind the mics” are sacrificing the safety of themselves and their families on a daily basis. For America. For us. Sure, they’re compensated well for their jobs, but work longer and harder each day than most of us with research and broadcasting. But they give up personal lives to help America survive. So we already “fight together” — them in their way and we do it in our way.
