1st Amendment Moles? The RNC Plans Free Speech Zones in Minneapolis

Headline: Moles Wanted "In preparation for the Republican National Convention, the FBI is soliciting informants to keep tabs on local protest groups..." So who does Homeland Security think poses the gravest threat to the Republican National Convention?

The Vegans are coming! The Vegans are coming! Watch out for those militant vegetarians, as you never know when one might pelt you with a veggie burger. Actually, it looks like the vegans are trying to deflect attention away from their "angry" reputation (have you ever actually met a vegan that threatened you with bodily harm?). It is interesting who they point to as the real potential danger: Ron Paul Republicans, of course. I have a another sincere question for you:

"What is threatening about Americans who believe in constitutionally-limited government?"

Nothing, unless you are a welfare/warfare statist. As a larger and larger percentage of Americans grow dependent upon the feds for jobs or welfare, or welfare jobs, the more dangerous those aligned with our founding documents "appear." Just don't call it terrorism.

Neo-conservative Republicans have become lovers of Big Government and welfare as extreme as the most "liberal" of Democrats. Will you fall for their trick of "criminalizing" those who love freedom the most? Will there be "free speech" zones surrounded by barbed-wire in Minneapolis at the time of the RNC?

What a picture for the world, much less Americans within our own borders, to see. The danger to our constitutional republic comes not from foreign terrorism -- but from those that would terrorize it by ignoring the one thing that restrains the growth of this obscene Democrat and Republican cancer. None are so blind that cannot see their own reflection in the mirror.

It's called the Constitution for these united States. Perhaps, with the jingoistic John McCain at the helm, they can get over the Constitution-al illusion and declare it to be a terrorist document because it values liberty over security, starting with our Declaration of Independence:

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,..."

Do you remember way back when liberty was valued above all else? Despite what is insinuated, September 11, 2001 did not change natural law. A tragic event was used to convince the people that safety was more important than liberty. The irony is that 9/11 happened as a consequence of our misplaced faith that government would or could protect us from such events.

The fact is that it is a FAILURE of government, not of the people, except where the people fell asleep listening to a federal lullaby. Now we are to be convinced that only if we would have given more power to the federal government, all would have been well. Or for the future, we must accept DNA databasing and national ID cards or else planet earth is blasted from the sky. Their UN-constitutional world may end, but life will surely go on.

As long as we remain fearful, we are open to victimization from those that would sell us a false security for our priceless liberty. Shame on them that have sold their souls for a pittance of political power or the promise that they would be cared for cradle to grave.

How on earth can we honor our fallen war veterans by glorifying the power of the state? Did they really fight and lose their lives so that we Americans left behind would be spied upon by a behemoth federal bureaucracy in the name of safety? The message of Memorial Day should be one of thanks and reconnection to the real reason we may have to go to war. Our gratitude should be because of their defense of liberty, not the enablement of incremental federal enslavement of the masses under the guise of enhanced security.

Whether you be a vegan or a Ron Paul Republican -- both or undecided -- that anyone would think that we need government infiltration and free speech zones is a sad indication of our duplicity on the issue of freedom. A nation that loves liberty does not "need" to spy on its citizens. That it does is evidence of a paranoid bureaucracy knowing that it no longer operates under the law, but way outside of it.

A criminal looks at everyone else as a criminal, because it is all he knows. A government that looks at every citizen as a potential terrorist has already descended into that insecure state of UNconsciousness from which there is no return. If it is to be possible to turn back from the point of no return, we must persist in binding the politicians and bureaucrats down by the chains of the constitution. For that is the only way we can SECURE liberty to our posterity. A constitutional republic can only survive as long as the people force the government to obey the law.

If we do not, one day we may have to memorialize the freedom that was ultimately killed under the guise of the phony War on Terror. May that day never come...
