An Agent Of The King In Every Home

Quote:
The legal concept of citizen privacy from government intrusion is unfortunately a very new one in the long strides of human history. The idea that government can be limited, or restricted in its powers by the people, and that certain realms of life can and should be off-limits to the prying eyes of bureaucracy, is rarely applied in any culture of any era. This is because most civilizations have been founded and ruled upon the principles of military dominance. There was no separation between the government and the armies it fashioned; the government WAS the military. That is to say, martial law was a way of life for society, privacy was a foolish dream, and daring to contest the fact usually led to one’s death.
Worth a read

And what exactly is that? Say something concrete, don't just spew Sarah Palin rhetoric.

Back again so soon? Somehow I knew you wouldn't just leave us.

I am surprised you have missed the discussions that have been going around about warrantless searches, Supreme Court decisions, etc. not to mention the continuing discussion about the USA Patriot Act.

Here is a link for you to one of the discussions.

Ready for the police state?

I am done debating the birth certificate/citizen issue. You didn't give me an answer - the topics above are all issues which were problems during the Bush administration. If those are the issues you're still having a problem with, I'm surprised you didn't leave the country during Bush.

Yes. It was a problem during the Bush Adminstration and similarly during the Clinton Adminstration. It is not a new phenomenon. It just keeps getting worse. The course needs correction.

New Mexico has ruled that officers may confiscate firearms from your vehicle during a traffic stop even if they have no reasonable cause to do so, trampling the 2nd Amendment as well as the 4th. Also in New Mexico (as in many states), if you have a conceal carry permit, you are supposed to announce to the officer that you have a weapon on your person. Meaning, now you have to let the traffic cop know that you have a firearm in the car and hope he doesn’t decide to take it away from you:

I can just see it. Cop pulls you over for an immigration check. You tell them, "I have a concealed weapon." The cop arrests you for threatening a police officer. It goes in the report, "The accused threated me saying, 'I've got a gun, copper!'"
