The people are the source of all political power, and all of government is limited by our state and federal constitutions. However, the constitutions do not defend themselves; they just sit there. Citizens must defend constitutions against unconstitutional acts by those wielding governmental power.
The most pernicious form of tyranny is that which disguises itself as a benefactor to its victims. An act of tyranny anywhere is a threat to freedom everywhere. Every unlawful act committed by the government -- whether at the local, state or federal levels -- is an act of tyranny, and we, as responsible Americans, have a duty to maintain vigilance and to respond to acts of governmental tyranny in order to preserve, protect and enhance our rights, freedoms and liberties. As Jefferson repeated, "The price of freedom is eternal vigilance … the eye of vigilance should never be closed… when the government fears the people you have liberty; when the people fear the government you have tyranny."
Excellent post.

That's true. One thing I can't understand about Obama is his vote for all those bailouts. He says he wants to redistribute the wealth but the only thing those bailouts will accomplish is to replenish the wealth of the greedy, superwealthy companies that robbed America at taxpayer expense. If Obama uses intellectual honesty instead of political expediency in making his decisions he might find his popularity rises.

Oh, haven't you heard, the Federal Reserve doesn't even need them to vote on it now. They just do as they please.

Unfortunately, the Fed has MUCH too much power. We don't need them and sorely need to get rid of them. JFK was the last president who tried to ditch the Fed and we know what happened to him. Why should WE have to borrow money from the Fed to live on? Why should WE pay for the Fed's corruption and failures? We're paying for this "black hole" bailout, and we're seeing NOTHING for our money, while the financial corporations are having meetings at spas and STILL paying outrageous bonuses to their CEOs. WE continue to lose jobs and the more taxes WE are unable to pay, the more jobs and infrastructure will disappear.

Well it's moving now. The radically wealthy are having an "economic coup". BTW Obama supports the 'bailouts'. Both parties are in on this.

Fed refuses to identify recipients of loans (almost $2 TRILLON dollars of them and counting)

I agree, political expediency from both parties. Knee jerk/fear mongering passage of legislation once again.
