Obama’s Attack on Freedom

As a European who came of age in Austria, in the shadow of the Iron Curtain where I witnessed a man machine-gunned to death by Communist guards as he tried to escape, I have a special appreciation for freedom. I am encouraged by the example of Ukraine where protesters who sought greater freedom and sovereignty for their country were able to topple an old-style regressive socialistic regime.

Yet I view the government in my adopted country of America, that of the Obama Administration, as representing a step backward, a step away from the freedoms that have made America the most successful society in history in every sense. The nation that inspired human freedom around the world from the time of its founding in 1776 appears to have caught the totalitarian disease.

Americans shrug as the NSA randomly spies on millions of people, dropping in on phone calls and snooping on computers. While Nixon resigned over bugging a few phones, Obama defends millions of wire-taps and there is barely a murmur.

Speaking of Nixon, he got in trouble when his IRS looked at a handful of tax returns yet Obama’s IRS routinely attack his enemies with denials of non-profit status and with requests for privileged information. His IRS operative Lois Lerner pleads the fifth in congressional testimony and then goes on to a cushy retirement.

Obamacare, besides hurting an economy that has already been weakened by anti-business regulations, a 17 Trillion dollar national debt, systemic and unprecedented levels of unemployment and demands for more spending with more funds to be transferred to crony capitalists and welfare recipients, will gather personal health information which will be entered into a massive data-base. This will come in handy when, down the road, every American will get a CORI score that will determine how much health care the government will allow them to receive. Sarah Palin was right. There will be death panels.

Between NSA spying, IRS abuses, Obamacare, and other programs such as Common Core which is taking over public schools and Agenda 21 which is taking over environmental regulation, Obama is clearly moving America in the direction of becoming a hyper-nationalist socialist nanny state.

I’ve witnessed the dangers and oppression of such societies first hand. They always market themselves as “progressive” and they claim to represent “the people.” Fellow Americans. Wake up and remember what got you here. Remember your Constitution and realize that freedom does not grow on trees, it has to be earned and at time fought for.
