Our freedom and Liberty are slipping away. The NSA Prism program showed us two points:
1. The government acknowledges no individual right to privacy.
2. Whistle blowers are traitors to the regime.
Will the people fight for their freedom? Slipping poll numbers for the president will not stop these abuses by the government. As Obama argues below, it is a false choice to suggest that freedom must be sacrificed to achieve security. Pathetic. Ben Franklin told us the truth:
“Those who surrender freedom for security will not have, nor do they deserve, either one.”
― Benjamin Franklin
What else would you expect Obama to say to the people? The truth is that Obama has developed a massive database that not only invades our privacy illegally, it is being used to blackmail our Congressmen, military, intelligence agencies and Supreme Court Justices. And this will be in use after he leaves office under the guise of Organizing for Action. Just ask Maxine Waters.
We have a decision to make and not much time left. Will you surrender your freedom for Obama’s security?
President Obama doubled down Monday on his defense of two National Security Agency spying programs that have damaged his approval ratings and distracted his presidency.
In an interview with PBS’s Charlie Rose, Obama argued it’s a “false choice” to suggest freedom must be sacrificed to achieve security, a phrasing that echoes comments he made on the campaign trail in 2008.
“To say there’s a tradeoff doesn’t mean somehow that we’ve abandoned freedom,” Obama said according to a transcript first published by Buzzfeed. The full interview will air later Monday.
