“Establishment politicians from both major political parties are rushing to defend the NSA and condemn whistleblower Edward Snowden. They are attempting to portray Edward Snowden as a “traitor” and the spooks over at the NSA that are snooping on all of us as “heroes”. In fact, many of the exact same politicians that once railed against government spying during the Bush years are now staunchly defending it now that Obama is in the White House. But it isn’t just Democrats that are acting shamefully. Large numbers of Republican politicians that love to give speeches about “freedom” and “liberty” are attempting to eviscerate the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
The government is not supposed to invade our privacy and investigate us unless there is probable cause to do so. Apparently many of our politicians misunderstood when they read the novel 1984 by George Orwell. It wasn’t supposed to be an instruction manual. We should be thanking Edward Snowden for exposing the deep corruption that is eating away at our own government like cancer.”

“Just in case you thought it was only the Democrats that wanted to take your guns, America, here’s Exhibit A: Mike Murphy, GOP strategist, is behind most of the Mayors Against Illegal Guns advertisements on television. MAIG is Michael “Call Me Napoleon” Bloomberg’s non-profit dedicated to stripping you of the ability to say “no” to him and other busybodies that know better than you how to live your life.
But that’s only one guy, right? So why was Pat Toomey hip deep in the gun legisation crafting in the Senate? (other than his desire to keep getting invited to all the swanky Democrat-funded parties in DC…) Why was John “Angry Gnome” McCain desperate to see a spate fo anti-gun legislation? Why was John “Crybaby” Boehner looking to do an end run around his own caucus to introduce anything that came out of the Senate?”

“In the wake of the 2012 Presidential election, the expected gloating over Obama’s victory and sulking over Romney’s defeat by their respective supporters is taking its typical turn toward the absurd, at least for those who are aware of the true lack of choice that was presented in this election.
As every other failed presidential campaign in history has done, the Romney camp will soon come to grips with their loss. The Obama camp, however, will now be presented with four more years of a President who has been and will continue to be identical to the President they claimed to have hated for so many years.
As Obama continues to execute, for another four years, the very same policies implemented by Bush (and by Romney had he been elected), individuals who call themselves “liberals” or “progressives” will be faced with the challenge of defending what they perceive to be “their candidate” irrespective of reality, facts, and common sense. “
