HOW AMERICA IS BECOMING A POLICE STATE

From drones to gun raids, under Obama law enforcement is being 'fundamentally transformed'

Where is the outrage from the Left? The left has shown the public who they are. after 8 years of slamming Bush we now see they are undeniable hypocrites. Now they have looked in the mirror and see They are authoritarian fear mongorers.

Liberals have been writing about this illegal Presidential policy long before your right wing propaganda media got a hold of it.

Attorney General Holder defends execution without charges - Salon.com

Also, on the latest Patriot Act renewal. More Dems voted against Obama than Republicans did.

The actual left in this country thinks Obama is too conservative/authoritarian and have been vocal about it. Why would conservatives not know that? The answer is because conservative media has told you that the left is silent on the issue, so that's what you believe.

Exactly. This is just another issue that they can bash Obama on. Just ,in this case, they happen to be right.

Does anyone of these whiney right wing cry babies care that the GOP voted for the Patriot Act in greater numbers than Dems?

Do they give credit to the liberal Dems that oppose Obama on this?

No, they're just out here trying to score some cheap partisan shot.

Because there's no political benefit for Democrats in appeasing liberals when it comes to civil liberties since most of the American public seems perfectly okay with giving away their Fourth and Fifth and Ninth Amendment Protections in the name of security and protection. It's not hypocritical, it's lacking the political power to do anything about it.

So, I assume OP is a a card carrying member of the ACLU?

If you can point out where I supported Bush or the Patriot Act on civil liberties feel free.
Otherwise you can yell at the strawman all you want.

I just gave you an example of liberals that are opposing Obama on the issue of civil liberties in the 2nd post on this thread.

Doesn't that clearly go against your thread title?

When are you going to acknowledge this? Or is this thread just designed to score some partisan "gotcha"?

I didn't support Bush on the Patriot Act (in fact I never voted for Bush)nor do I support Obama on this (sadly I did vote for him but for Gary Johnson in 2012). I don't see much difference between Obama and Bush except Bush got us into two wars and a horrible economy while Obama continues these and wants to increase spending foolishly.
