President Obama and his socialist goons in congress have so far taken over our financial systems and automotive industries.
They have openly professed their desire to impose the “fairness doctrine” to stifle dissenting media.
They want to control our lives and how we take care of ourselves by imposing their bizarre version of socialized healthcare.
They want to emasculate the CIA, conducting a political witch hunt for people within the organization whose job it is to protect us from our enemies, while worrying about the treatment and release of known terrorists from Gitmo.
They wanted citizens to snitch on eachother with the “firstname.lastname@example.org” experiment.
And now, it appears, they want to be able to invade our privacy and curtail our freedom of speech by awarding themselves the power to take control of the internet due to an unspecified “emergency”.
“Internet companies and civil liberties groups were alarmed this spring when a U.S. Senate bill proposed handing the White House the power to disconnect private-sector computers from the Internet.
The new version would allow the president to “declare a cybersecurity emergency” relating to “non-governmental” computer networks and do what’s necessary to respond to the threat. Other sections of the proposal include a federal certification program for “cybersecurity professionals,” and a requirement that certain computer systems and networks in the private sector be managed by people who have been awarded that license.
Probably the most controversial language begins in Section 201, which permits the president to “direct the national response to the cyber threat” if necessary for “the national defense and security.” The White House is supposed to engage in “periodic mapping” of private networks deemed to be critical, and those companies “shall share” requested information with the federal government. (“Cyber” is defined as anything having to do with the Internet, telecommunications, computers, or computer networks.)”
These systematic attempts to control our private institutions and our own personal privacy goose-steps forward with alarming speed.
What else needs to happen for the 50% of our citizens who approve of Obama’s agenda to realize his vision for this country is nothing more than a vehicle to impose upon us a dark, socialized form of government bondage? One in which dissent is punished, and freedom restricted to the rules of an elite thugocracy.
Any and all means necessary will be used by this regime to curtail any freedoms which it deems detrimental to its survival.
“Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both.”
We would do well to heed his wisdom.
