Heads Up, Obamaniacs:

Long experience has established:

Knowledge is power. -- Francis Bacon (http://testserver.semantic-mediawiki.org/wiki/Knowledge... )

"Power corrupts; absolute power corrupts absolutely." -- John Emerich Edward Dalberg-Acton (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Dalberg-Acton,_1st_Ba... )

Don't leave the foxes to guard the hen house -- (http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Hebraic_proverbs )

"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized." -- (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Probable_cause ). As Wikipedia further explains, "{The Fourth Amendment} was ratified as a response to the abuse of the writ of assistance, which is a type of general search warrant, in the American Revolution. The amendment specifically requires search and arrest warrants be judicially sanctioned and supported by probable cause. Search and arrest should be limited in scope according to specific information supplied to the issuing court, usually by a law enforcement officer, who has sworn by it."

Since our nation was founded, these principles have been violated many times, only to be abused. Please provide a list, anyone (sources/authority appreicated)??? of instances in which such abuse turned out to have been worth it? Because I am not aware of one single instance.

On the other hand, I am aware of many instances in which the violation of these principles was abused, to all our detriment and shame.

As Franklin said, "They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety." (http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Benjamin_Franklin )

I don't care who's violating my fundamental rights; it's unacceptable and I will do all I can to fight it. We were meant to be a government "of laws, not of men." (http://www.bartleby.com/73/991.html )

I want my f'ing rights back.

The enemy is not Republicans, or terrorists, or etc. As Pogo said, "We have met the enemy, and he is US." (http://www.igopogo.com/we_have_met.htm )
