Dangerous Government Power

Thomas Sowell has written: "The real danger to us all is when government not only exercises the powers that we have voted to give it, but exercises additional powers that we have never voted to give it." 

  • When Obama Administration's Attorney General started to keep track of phone calls going to Fox News Channel reporter James Rosen (and his parents), and to other reporters or networks that dared to criticize the Obama Adsministration, it directly opposed the Constitution. It was illegal, and they damn well knew it.  
  • When the Internal Revenue Service started demanding to know specifically who was donating to conservative organizations that had applied for tax exempt status, it clearly expected to intimidate those donors and others who oppose the Obama Administration's political agenda.
Someone once said;  "A government that is powerful enough to protect it's citizens against it's enemies is also powerful enough to become an enemy itself". The Obama Administration is very close to becoming an enemy of America.
