In the past couple couple of years, setting a precedent of unchecked power has been my worry; but, Obama & the Democrats went ahead with government overreach anyway &, at this point, I could care less because the Democrats have run roughshod over the country for quite a long time now.
However; others take up the banner of being alarmed at the new reality. Glenn Greenwald, though a Liberal idiot of the Washington Post, delineates my thoughts exactly:
“…beginning in his first month in office and continuing through today, Obama not only continued many of the most extreme executive-power policies he once condemned, but in many cases strengthened and extended them. His administration detained terrorism suspects without due process, proposed new frameworks to keep them locked up without trial, targeted thousands of individuals (including a U.S. citizen) for execution by drone, invoked secrecy doctrines to shield torture and eavesdropping programs from judicial review, and covertly expanded the nation’s mass electronic surveillance…”
I’ve grown weary of the Republican Establishment allowing the Democrats & Obama call all the shots, altering the country, smashing traditional American values at the expense of half the country. So, there will be no sympathy or concern coming from my corner. The country is now in bad need of refurbishment & the cancer within, the Democrat Party, needs to be partitioned off & detained. They are but a sad note in history. A terrible infection that has afflicted the health the Great Republic.
