You might very well be right. I think we are actually getting ruled by some sort of oligarchy right now. And they have learned how to manipulate our system.

2. I assume the majority of people who are so very against Obama were OK with the bar of status quo that was set. I assume this because the very people who are crying revolution are very people who watched FOX for eight years and rooted on the current status quo that Obama maintains.
To Sir, with love.
Assumption is the mother of all foul-ups ......

mmmmm k.... why do you not respond to the SECOND half of my reply? You wanted tangible evidence, I have supplied it.
Why reply to the section that has nothing to do with that which you have requested and leave the subject matter out?
In case you didn't see it...
I no longer have the right to decide NOT to buy health insurance without penalty. When you are penalized, the action for which you are penalized is not a right. It is an infraction of some restraint. Is this the proof you wanted? It is tangible, however I will allow you to sift through the 2000+ pages to find the exact portion.

Don't blame Obama for your imaginary losses, blame me and the other liberals that voted for him. We are the majority, we want these changes, sorry conservative, you lose. Stop being a sore loser and get with the program. Love democracy or leave it.

im curious where "freedom of privacy" appears in the constitution?
You going into the street on a public road, in a public park, etc, does not give you the RIGHT TO PRIVACY.
Its funny to see liberal bleedy hearts crying for "lost freedoms" (freedoms we never had to begin with).
It reminds me of a line from the movie SWAT (With Colin Ferall) when LL Cool J busts the black guy in the lakers suit, and the black woman sweeping her porch is screaming at LL Cool J saying "thanks for helping out the problem by arresting the BLACK man!" basically riding his ass for arresting a fellow black human being.
LL Cool J's response was "Yah? We'll see how liberal you are when he's breaking into your home"
The same people screaming " DONt take my picture" will be screaming "What happened? Where was our surveillance" when another 9/11 happens.
Thats exactly what they scream about 9/11 on one hand, then scream "privacy privacy privacy!" on the other.
Its called absolute stupidity.
Kind of like absolute zero - only much worse.

Sir, I feel bad for you.
If you are trying to reason with people who see Obama as the end of America you will be up all night reading nonsense, If you put GWB in the WH doing the same exact things BHO is doing these fools would be over joyed with the "genius" of the current Commander and Chief.

After ten years I'm amazed people still have to ask this question.
The Patriot Act and the FISA amendments are a good place to start as far as what freedoms you are losing at an individual level and at the national level.
Are your 4th amendment rights not a good enough example?
How about you right to not incriminate yourself, the 5th amendment?
What about your right to counsel? Obama had the SCOTUS overturned Michigan v. Jackson so now the cops can question you even after you've envoked your right to counsel.
The director of national intelligence testified befor the house intelligence services committee that if they SUSPECT an American citizen is involved in terrorism that they get permission to kill said American without due process. Judge, Jury, Executioner.
But since it doesn't jive with "reality" non of this has actually happened. Is it all Obama's fault? No. But he is helping to enable these dangerous and unAmerican policies.
