And having no anonymity lets people like Obama (or king george) send their goons after you.

Privacy is as much a hallmark of this republic as openness. Hence the curtain at the voting booth...

I don't blame the people who want the privacy; I blame the ones sending the goons. Retaliation, retribution, and using state power to destroy, is standard operating procedure for would-be Napoleons like Obama, et al... And having "a list" is a big help.

Know what else is lame, shameful and sad??? Having areas closed to snowmobiling that are so FLAT you can't possibly ski them. And trying repeatedly to deny other skiers the use of the terrain the Snowcat operators use FOR PROFIT...

So the "tolerant" liberal progressive accuses someone of being a cold-blooded killer even though the courts found the man not guilty. (How "tolerant" of you, bulldozer-boy!)

Yet the same progressive leftist blissfully defends any lawlessness his mascots engage in, on the basis that some court upheld it so that makes it right. "The COURT SAID..." bla bla bla

That's why people think you're a Maroon, Dan... you have ZERO consistency... Courts are meaningless--he's a murderer one day. Courts are good--they upheld Obamacare the next day. Anything the defend your position... You're the perfect lemming to believe things like "gobal warming causes blizzards", or "We have to spend trilliuons to SAVE money", etc ...

Maroon...

And they are doing it with their politicians too. Obama and Trump are absolutely Americans clamoring for a king. Whatever blatant violation of the Constitution Obama commits, half the people defend him NOT BECAUSE they think he did right constitutionally, but because he did what THEY PERSONALLY wanted, IN SPITE OF IT'S LAWLESSNESS.

Many on the right have done the same thing vis a vis the Patriot Act, and will go even further allowing Trump to walk all over the Constitution if he is elected.

It's suicide, but the people insist on "action" They are too ignorant to understand that the Constitution was designed in part to PREVENT rapid, knee-jerk actions by government and to limit government effectiveness the same way one might like to limit the effectiveness of a venomous snake, rather than facilitate it.

I would imagine that Mexico sold this to their people as necessary to protect cops from gangsters retaliating for the cops arresting one of their cronies. But it would certainly open the door for corrupt cops to run amok.

Americans already accept rampant violations of Posse Comitatus Act, which basically prohibits the use of the military to police citizens.

It was clearly violated in Waco, with DISASTROUS results, when the FBI brought in military hardware and soldiers from Ft Hood.

I remember Waco as a turning point in my own life. The day that whole thing started I was all in favor of "the good guys" going in and "getting them" any way necessary. By the end of the siege, I had done a complete 180 as I began to learn about Posse Comitatus, etc and why those rules existed. I never looked at government the same again after they burned down that compound with like 80 people in it who had never been given a trial, including 17 children.

You don't "rescue" children by burning them alive... EVEN IF their religion is a bit "out there" by ones own standards.

This incident led directly to the bombing of the Murrow building that got something like another 150+ p innocent people killed. All started with the violation of Posse Comitatus...

The reason this kind of thing is illegal is quite simple: Police are supposed to gather evidence and bring people in to be tried by a court. To the contrary, the military goes under the assumption that everybody in their cross-hairs has already been tried, convicted, and sentenced to death. So their job is to break things and kill people, PERIOD.

Can't have that attitude with American citizens. But Americans (again out of a sense of desperation) are throwing up their hands and saying "I don't care, we need to call in the military to stop __ situation"... Incredibly dangerous and stupid thinking...

What constituents want, deserve and can afford are rarely the same. They WANT a Lamborghini. They DESERVE different things because some pay HUUUUGE taxes while others pay few or none. What they can collectively afford is probably less than they have ALREADY, especially if one borrows today's favorite buzzword--"sustainability".

Funny how that word only applies to environmental concerns; never to economics...

My dog could answer your questions, Dan. No intellect required.

Hey, by the by...While you were out skiing powder and riding those coal-fired ski lifts with all your white friends, did you happen to see O.J. out there, Mr. "champion of the people"?

Did you and he find Nichole's killer?? Or any dishonest, greedy, racist republicans out there in whitetopia?

Did you and OJ "bring 'em to justice", Mr. "progressive warrior"?

What a maroon...

That's because as they seize power they do so thru leaders who promise to "get things done". Basically this means "to heck with the Constitution, or those pesky congress-critters! I have a pen and a phone!" Or "Believe me, I will make Mexico pay for a wall!" or whatever.

This is music to the ears of those desperate to change the trajectory of the republic. And they will cut ties to a Constitution faster than Grant took Richmond if they think it will get results. Never considering the NEXT king will have been made even more powerful by precedent.
