    Are you confusing survivalists with extremists?

    That seems like reasonable logic.

    What does that have to do with people thinking government is infringing upon their Rights? Or is this due to some one from the Right making people aware?

    Thinking it don't make it so. And only thinking when your party loses makes one partisan insane.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    You should be concerned, however, since Obama and his Justice Department have taken the position that they can assassinate any American they deem to be a threat to America, in any country, without due process or trial.

    With government drones now being used within the continental US, I'd be concerned with a person such as Obama with little concern for constitutional rights and principles, having his finger on the life/death button.
    Or you can move to Canada. Oh wait, that's where you are already. Why would we use drones when we have plenty of black helicopters?
    I think hear one out you window now......
