Am I a National Security Threat?

Do I fit the profile? I respect the Second Amendment. I am a war veteran. I believe in federalism. I am pro life. I never thought I would see the day, when I would fit the profile of a dangerous domestic terrorist. I even thought government profiling was somehow an unacceptable activity.

I am beginning to fear we may be witnessing the dawn of the American police state. By temperament I am moderate. I don’t normally agree with conspiracy nuts. I don’t think I am paranoid. I don’t want to be alarmist. Nevertheless, I am becoming more and more concerned about what is taking place since Obama has been elected.

The government’s attempt to gain authority to close down the Internet, the plan to restrict talk radio, curtailing the secret ballot, taking control of General Motors, the massive growth in government debt, and various other proposals and trends are making me fearful that the freedom we have known as Americans is slipping away. The latest development by the Department of Homeland Security, that profiles those who advocate conservative positions, as potential domestic terrorist is chilling. Before I panic, I want to learn more about the latest from DHS, but I feel that Big Sister is watching. Maybe it is time to be alarmed.

  1. When protesters from the left side of the aisle got together you had no problem with us being watched, even if it went against the constitution. I remember the argument that we shouldn't worry about wire tapping if we weren't saying anything illegal. Left wing rallies were made to seem to contain extremists and dangerous Anti-American sentiments. Where were you when the patriot act was passed? I could say what goes around comes around but instead I'll say this. . .and then they came for me and there was NO ONE left to speak for me.

  2. Ok your a moderate=Your worried about the government trying to take over GM?. I have a strong feeling that if you gave me 14 billion dollars, You would want a stake in my action.
