    So the IRS holds up the applications of conservative groups just before an election, they also audit candidates and all the candidates family. The NSA records enough information about most Americans to draw a pretty complete picture about the daily lives and activities of most of us. Obamacare is enforced by the IRS and also aims to compile a complete portable electronic medical history of all Americans. Security cameras are becoming increasingly omnipresent in all public places including street intersections. There are plans to have cars carry a monitoring system so that a cars whereabouts could always be known to law enforcement. The face of very piece of mail is scanned and recorded as it is delivered.

    The combination of virtually zero privacy and illegal control over our lives is dangerous and will lead to horrific and astounding abuses on a mass scale some day. If the abusers are intent on reshaping our America into some other form it could change life as we know it.

    Lets not forget that the DOJ uses its power to prosecute people based more on the political gain and to advance statism than to advance justice.

    Most Americans are concerned about the problems that have been revealed at the NSA, many are concerned about the problems at the DOJ and the IRS too.

    So what does Obama think about these problems?

    He said this at one time:

    "I’ve reviewed the Treasury Department watchdog’s report, and the misconduct that it uncovered is inexcusable. It’s inexcusable, and Americans are right to be angry about it, and I am angry about it. I will not tolerate this kind of behavior in any agency, but especially in the IRS, given the power that it has and the reach that it has into all of our lives. And as I said earlier, it should not matter what political stripe you’re from — the fact of the matter is, is that the IRS has to operate with absolute integrity. The government generally has to conduct itself in a way that is true to the public trust. That’s especially true for the IRS. "
    But more recently he said this:
    “With an endless parade of distractions, political posturing and phony scandals, Washington has taken its eye off the ball,” Obama said, according to prepared remarks released by the White House prior to his economic speech Wednesday at Knox College in Illinois. ”And I am here to say this needs to stop. Short-term thinking and stale debates are not what this moment requires.”
    Obama’s statement echoes a line repeatedly used by Carney to describe the IRS targeting scandal and other Obama administration headaches, including the National Security Agency surveillance and the Benghazi terrorist attack.
    P.s. notice that he said the gov "generally" has to conduct itself in a way that is true to the public trust. What? Are there times when it can freely ignore the public trust?

    Whenever a government becomes so big and powerful, the consequences for the people are most negative. I think our government is there....

    All we need now is something to occur that triggers the government to impose a police state. What might occur that would cause this? Well some say the economy will crash soon and much worse than 2008. This might be the thing for the power elite to impose their will on the people.

    ...lets not forget the huge ammo purchases domestic government agencies have made.

    The government represents the boss class that pulls all the rightist strings, and teaches them to say they are anti the only force that keeps their masters in being. Weirdoes!

    Common Core's Data Mining Trojan Horse

    While many Americans are focused on NSA and other such "phony scandals," the Washington education police are swarming around in schools gathering intimate data on children and families...

    A secretive U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration unit is funneling information from intelligence intercepts, wiretaps, informants and a massive database of telephone records to authorities across the nation to help them launch criminal investigations of Americans.
    Although these cases rarely involve national security issues, documents reviewed by Reuters show that law enforcement agents have been directed to conceal how such investigations truly begin

    Anyone surprised? The next step is to use the information to only go after your political enemies. With all this out there, and the corrupt nature our government has become, there is nothing to stop them from "planting" evidence either.
