1984 is a book from the late 40's where the western world is taken over by communist overlords who censor thought by removing words from the English language.

So basically in a section of Oceana some local inner party leaders don't like having to deal with the rest of Oceana, so they lead the population of their province in rebellion against the rest of Oceana, getting some aide from Eurasia and Eastasia to allow the split up to be successful after subtly adjusting propaganda in their provinces. Anyone who is a loyalist to Oceana gets disappeared or lynched by mobs of proles turned against them by propaganda. Eventually said provinces manage to win their independance, but still have basically the same people in charge using similar policies as before with certain ideas of ENSOC being used to a greater degree, only instead of Big Brother their is an enigmatic committee who commands as much respect.

There is a lot more to the American Revolution than you think.

Hmm. Doubtful. I mean, they already tried that and it didn't turn out very well. It did next to nothing to expand individual freedoms. If anything, it did the exact opposite and increased surveillance...

It seems strange to me that someone who identifies as a Christian would be so enamored with Soviet culture and iconography considering the Soviets were atheist and systematically repressed and oppressed those of the Christian faith... but maybe I'm missing something.

if you are a member of the tea party, and believe that Obama is 'shredding the Constitution', please read this:

no, i'm not a member of the tea party. i consider myself somewhat of a libertarian.

i believe that obama views the constitution as "...a charter of NEGATIVE liberties." he has said so himself. [link] and as such has little if any respect for it, along with many other politicians form both sides of the isle.

though this article was interesting, anyone curious enough to do further reading in regards to our founders thoughts and beliefs on the role of government and the supremacy of individual liberty would recognize it for what it is.

i'd rather read the words of one of our most prodigious founders, thomas jefferson, than those of elizabeth wydra and david gans.

"Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny."
Thomas Jefferson

"I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them."
Thomas Jefferson

"Our country is now taking so steady a course as to show by what road it will pass to destruction, to wit: by consolidation of power first, and then corruption, its necessary consequence."
Thomas Jefferson

"My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government."
Thomas Jefferson

and besides..what does any of this have to do with this particular piece of mine?

this is a piece about the invasion of privacy and the fact that the amount of tyranny we live under is the exact amount we put up with.

true. the truth is separate from everything. we can agree on that. however, the truth can by tricky to find.

all i know is when it comes to matters of government and the constitution, i'd rather let the men who formed and wrote it speak for themselves and learn it that way...not from some political party with an agenda or former lawyers.

hey, do you think obama is the greatest thing ever? do you think he cares about you? if so, please watch this:[link]

I like them both, but my favorite was the first. I printed it out and posted it in my office, and one of my coworkers wanted to see where I'd found it. (She liked it too.)
