    Absolutely right. The government states that they are protecting us from terrorists. Who is protecting us from the government?

    I fear our Government much more than Terrorist.

    Been saying it for years now... "The terrorists have already won"

    The biggest reason they have won is because of the government's inability to put the welfare of the nation ahead of their own. It started with Bush and Obama has made it much, much, worse.

    Nope. Started with Lyndon Johnson and has gotten progressively worse since.

    Was referring to the "terrorist" issue. In regards to the "Progressive Socialist" overthrow of the government, couldn't agree more. In fact, one could go as far back as Woodrow Wilson for that matter.

    But getting back to the point... The terrorists won when those planes were flown into the towers and resulting reactions of the government after that. Things like two wars that have accomplished nothing, the Patriot Act, TSA, and DHS. Not to mention the dog pile of the current POS in the White House and his administration of thugs and criminals.

    Go back to Roosevelt my friend... He started the idea of Federal Government taking care of its subjects... errrr citizens.

    The first sentence states "Here's how terrorism really works: Slaughter people on national TV, and watch a nation that prides itself on freedom as it shackles itself."
    .
    Let me fix it... "Slaughter people on national TV, and watch as politicians spin it as the basis for increasing unconstitutional control over every aspect of your life, for no reason other than to strengthen a party's aspirations of condeming our founding principals of liberty and democracy into ancient history."

    I agree! This isn't the America that I grew up in. All civilizations/countries change over time. If we could just get back to the Founding Fathers vision of what this country could be, not how it's ending up.

    In 2007, candidate Barack Obama railed against the "false choice between the liberties we cherish and the security we provide. I will provide our intelligence and law-enforcement agencies with the tools they need to track and take out the terrorists without undermining the Constitution and our freedom."

    Boy did that ever change!
