The day may come that we take up arms against this present adminstration and the President. Perhaps that is what Obama is expecting as well. Hence the moves toward taking away firearms, buying up ammunition, and these other onerous laws. I believe he is making plans that will enrage Americn citizens and he's doing things now that will impede our ability to protest later.

I agree with you and I have some friends higher up the chain that say the same thing..this guy is up to no good and it really ticks me off that our side seems to be blind to the danger this bum represents. Going to dinner with this clown like they will be able to deter him from his agenda of destroying this nation? That's as stupid as HIM thinking he can talk the Iranians out of getting the bomb.

In conversations with those opposed to the notion of drone attacks against U.S. citizens, on or away from American soil, I ask a question as a consistency test:

Is your opposition based on a blanket principle that no President should have such power, or is it a spurred by a mistrust of the current administration?

In many cases I get the first answer, so I know I am engaged with a libertarian mindset, which I always respect and often share. We should always take great pause before empowering government to take bold action unilaterally that could result in loss of life...
