The consolidation of power, the ability to declare policy, and project power against our own citizens is staggering.
I think we must begin to recognize that this eternal preoccupation with imminent 'threats' to security are not drawn from concern for the people of the United States; but instead are drawn from concern for the current government body and it's beneficiaries.
They are preparing and arming the political parties, through the federal government, to ensure that THEY ARE PROTECTED FROM US and perhaps equally importantly, that THEY ARE PROTECTED FROM THE CONSEQUENCES OF THEIR OWN ACTIONS.
Sadly, those actions are usually for the benefit of their sponsors and 'group-think' leaders.
Obama is not thinking clearly, or is simply being directed to make these changes.
