Everywhere is government expanding and individual liberty shrinking. The letter to the editor, "What if," echoes what is on the minds of millions of concerned Americans who see increasing and undeniable evidence of a government methodically drawing their plans against the "People of the United States" – plans forwarded into high gear under Barack Hussein Obama.
Almost two billion rounds of illegal hollow point bullets were recently purchased by various federal non-military bureaucracies. Hollow point bullets are missiles designed to shatter with ripping force inside a human body. The feds say these bullets are for "target practice" – a limp and ludicrous excuse for massive stockpiling of killing power unless you understand their double entendre that We the People can be targets, too.
Meanwhile, the FBI is busy blanketing the nation with facial-recognition capable cameras. The NSA is collecting, storing and collating every phone call, every electronic communication and transaction and mining other diverse sources of personally identifiable data. The TSA is expanding its ranks by leaps and implementing its questionable authority beyond airports and into bus and train stations and now public highways. State and local police forces reflect increasing federal involvement and militarization.

Clearly, Big Brother with fangs has gone berserk under this president who chooses to rule by executive edicts and comport himself like a chieftain lording over a tribe of servile supplicants. In that vein, Obama has signed the Naziesque NDAA that permits indefinite detention of American citizens by the military without a warrant, court finding or even access to a lawyer. This is not what the Founding Fathers of our republic had in mind when they framed the Constitution and engineered a government of the people, by the people and for the people.
That letter to the editor asks whether Obama would unleash the lethal forces at his command upon the "people of the United States." The fact that this is a legitimate question with grounds should chill every American to the marrow. Were Obama, with his authoritarian personality and cold narcissism, re-elected for a final four years, he would have no reason to restrain his tyrannical and psychopathic tendencies. Obama has already told America he wants to finish the job. Given his disastrous record, that can only mean taking the wrecking ball to the last standing columns of our economy and our U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights.
