The Patriot Act has its supporters and its detractors say its an affront to freedom.
Ron Paul hates it. Newt Gingrich says its important not to mix measures to fight terrorism with normal criminal law and processes.
Yesterday in the US Secret Service agents acting under the auspices of the Homeland Security visited a business owner who had been reported to the FBI as “a threat to National security”.
What did the business owner do to earn the attention of the Secret Service?
He put signs on his trucks saying he would not be hiring any new workers until Obama was gone from the Presidency.
Businessman Bill Looman made it clear that he is not refusing to hire to make some political point; it’s that he doesn’t believe he can hire anyone, because of the economy. And he blames the Obama administration.
“The way the economy’s running, and the way my business has been hampered by the economy, and the policies of the people in power, I felt that it was necessary to voice my opinion, and predict that I wouldn’t be able to do any hiring,” he said.
After reading the signs, some slimy little Obama sycophant reported him to the FBI. A completely false report, but it still resulted in a vist by the Secret Service.
“The Secret Service left here, they were in a good mood and laughing,” Looman said.
Right now, all over the globe, the left are attacking free speech, and in most cases, they’re using the power of government to do so. This particular case was an example of just how low these scum will go to silence criticism of their totalitarian ideology.
To anyone who has studied the history of the left, these events are no surprise. All the left need is opportunity, and they will incrementally take almost every freedom we have. Misusing or abusing the law, or making false allegations to intimidate their political opponents is something they’ve always been very good at.
