Secret Service confiscates books & buttons from Ron Paul delegates


www.dailynewscaster.com

Today at the Republican National Convention, as the Ron Paul Delegates were taking a picture in front of the model White House inside the Convention Center, they were surrounded by Secret Service which proceeded to search the bags of all the delegates. They took any and everything related to Ron Paul including signs, buttons, videos, slim jims, cards, even books.

“We were done taking the picture when Secret Service started walking into the room and surrounded us. There were about 30 of them.

Ron Paul delegates report that they have been shadowed by Secret Service since the begining of the Republican National Convention at the Xcel Center, since the confiscation of their political materials they are now being followed openly with an agent assigned to each delegate. For their own safety they have decided to stick together as a group while approaching the media with their story.



This is incredible, I'm not sure if i'm surprised or not, I just guess I hoped nothing of the sort would have happened yet.

It's been a bad week for freedoms, with SS harassing people for their politics, and mainstream and alternative press alike (ABC and Amy Goodman) being arrested, and they are just the ones I know about.

If you show up at the RNC wearing a Ron Paul button and/or carrying Ron Paul information you WILL be searched, your political materials WILL be confiscated, you WILL be followed and you will have a file created on you. If you are a member of any protest group outside the RNC you will be documented and a file will be created on you if there isn't already a file. If you are a reporter and they do not want you there you WILL be arrested and charged even though you may not be found guilty.

We have to face the facts, this IS the way our nation is run. If this story comes as a surprise to you then should just go back to sleep.

in any other country in the world this would be a surprise that would probably lead to civil unrest... Why is it that if this is a surprise to people they should go back to sleep? Should they not Wake up and fight?
