Back in October, 2011,

First Lady Michelle Obama suggested a Republican victory in the 2012 presidential election would result in curbs on freedom of speech and religion.

Speaking at a fundraiser at a private residence in Tampa, Mrs. Obama noted the power of the president to appoint members of the Supreme Court. She clearly indicated that a Republican would select justices who would attack basic First Amendment rights, saying "that's what's at stake" in the election.

Barack Obama signs law which will limit free speech at political events

Last Thursday the president secretly signed into law a bill which will place limits both our right to free speech and the right to petition the government for a redress of grievances–a direct assault on the first amendment."

What this bill–H.R. 347–does is give the president the authority to grant anyone he wants Secret Service protection, and it grants the person who receives the protection the authority to unilaterally declare that it is illegal for people to protest at an event he or she is attending. This bill goes so far as to make it a felony offense to disregard this order. This bill is effectively limiting political speech at a political event.

Barack Obama promised to fundamentally change America, but what is the fundamental law of the United States? The constitution, so if Barack Obama wants to change America fundamentally it goes without saying this means he was talking about changing–or dismantling–the constitution.


I hope everyone is paying attention!!!

Well, it is certainly disappearing in Central Indiana. We have a problem in our town, the Mayor has set himself up as Czar Supreme! No one is allowed to disagree with him.
We are really p.o'd. I didn't vote for him cause he reminds me of a Snake Oil salesman.
He is using the town $$ for his own means....and if people speak out calling them to confront them,(but never in public)
Only those people that support him in his efforts to rob this town are able to speak out, in his support!
I'm so tired of Republicans trying to take away our rights!
