article imageOp-Ed: An academic's insight into 'Big Brother Obama'

By Alexander Baron     Dec 20, 2011 in World
A distinguished academic discusses the erosion of civil liberties and human rights in the United States, and gives some chilling insights into how far down the road of tyranny we have gone.
What is the difference between Barack Obama and Osama Bin Laden? If you answered the latter is dead, think again. The real difference is that while both want to murder you, the President of the United States wants the right to murder you legally.
Jonathan Turley is a distinguished legal scholar; naturally he has his own website. Recently he spoke for nearly three quarters of an hour about the rise of the surveillance society, and the subversion of the rule of law in the United States.
The assassination of Osama Bin Laden was one thing; the slaying of Anwar al-Awlaki was another, because however odious he may have been, he was an American citizen born and bred. Now, the President wants the right to kill (read murder) any American citizen on American soil, and if he doesn't murder you, then he would like to be able to lock you up indefinitely without trial or charge.
If you have three quarters of an hour to spare and are concerned about human rights and civil liberties, check this out, whether or not you are an American citizen. By the way, that it the good news; the bad news is that Obama is the good guy, because apart from the 76 year old Ron Paul, all his potential rivals next year are even worse. And the really bad news...the police can already brutalise and murder you with total impunity, including in Britain where they are still theoretically unarmed.
