    First, we had people with Ron Paul bumper stickers, constitutionists and war veterans on Homeland Security's watch list. Now, they're really going hunting for those they see as their enemies- everyday Americans and school children who don't embrace liberalism and socialist policies. They want to know who is talking and they are taking names and every other bit of personal information. Now we'll all know how Joe the Plumber felt for asking a simple question. Cross the great Messiah and you'll be next.

    Requests under the Freedom of Information Act to see the documentation has gone unanswered. Remember, though, that the Obama administration changed the rules on releasing information. They now have the right to lie or withhold information. Obama is trying to control information by not being transparent and spying on citizens for discussing current issues. Why are they looking for their political enemies and wanting their personal information, including income and voting status? This has gone too far. I hope this and AttackWatch are discussed a lot over the next year so people know who Obama is. Of course, they can detain citizens, or even kill them, without a trial or due process. And we are getting an idea of who they consider terrorists. Should we be a little concerned when you add up everything they've done?

    And then this:

    What in the hell do they think they're doing?

    This administration is far more interested in going after average Americans who shun Obama's liberal policies than they are about going after illegals who come and commit crimes or potential terrorists. Young Muslim males are treated as if all of them are more harmless than little old ladies. I'm sick of this crap. I'm sure many of us here are already on some list, either Attack Watch or DHS because we don't adore Obama's policies and bow to dear leader twice a day. This is such bullshit the way they are invading our privacy. Can't you feel them breathing down your neck?

    This has nothing to do with ‘Obama’s liberal policies’; indeed, these are classic conservative ‘law-and-order’ policies: surrender freedom for security, the ends justifies the means – DHS and its entire ‘security apparatus’ is a republican creation run amuck.

    Why live in fear? If any of you has a political belief or opinion that you would feel afraid to sign your names to and display it in public then you have nothing in common with the men who signed the declaration of independence. Wear your politics on your sleeve or give it up and go back to watching "reality" TV.

    Remind us again of all the Republicans that authored the 2009 Stimulus bill? Remind us again how since 2009 DHS has been run by Republicans. Remind us again how since 2009 the US Department of Education has been run by Republicans. Remind us again how Obama promised the most transparent Administration in history and then ordered his departments to LIE about requests for disclosure.

    What fucking fantasy world do you LIVE IN?

    "911 changed everything." It's a new America. Haven't you heard? Big Brother is just looking out for us. They have to take our Freedom away in order for us to have Freedom. And Big Brother will give us our Freedom back as soon as the indefinite 'War on Terror' is over. They promised. So quit all your complaining. You'll get your rights back....When Big Brother wants to give them back to you.

    Does Obama only step forward for credit when he thinks something went right? But when things get worse, he claims to be completely ineffectual. Either he is revelent or not and he has been busy doing some things. Blame game has been over for a while, even though Obama inherited things he helped created. Remember, the Dems had control of the house and senate since 2007.

    Further trampling on our freedoms tops the list of his so-called accomplishments.

    I think the whole point of putting people who discuss things, like illegal immigration or oil drilling, on a watch list is to make people afraid of wearing their beliefs on their sleeves. It's intimidation. Don't discuss things or the government will snoop into your private life.

    Why the hell does this administration want to know our voting status and health history? Why do they want total access to all our accounts, including checking and retirement? Why did they want people with Ron Paul bumper stickers on DHS terrorist watch list? Why does Obama have a Soviet-style snitch site called AttackWatch? Why did this adminstration change the Freedom of Information act so they do not have to be at all transparent? Why did Obama purchase search words with Google to make it difficult to find the wording of the Health care bill and other things?

    It's all designed to control the flow of information and inhibit freedom of speech.
