    In 2001 we got stuck with the Patriot Act and DHS which expanded government and set a precedent for allowing that government to intrude on basic rights. Subsequent events have created even more "necessary" intrusions on basic privacy and liberties. We have to ask ourselves...."When will it stop?"

    What level of liberties are we willing to forsake in exchange for "safety" which will never be achieved 100%? At some point it seems that we may as well allow the terrorists to take over because we would be equally oppressed under their governance than we will under our own government. That's totally unacceptable.
    At one time, in the last decade, Bloomberg was considered by some to be an independent conservative and some on the right wanted him to run for the Republican presidential nomination and he had a pretty good chance of winning. Boy, was that wrong. A few terms in office as NYC mayor and his true liberal, elitist, "government knows what's best" colors come shining through.

    Don't you worry, they'll keep voting for that little tinpot Napolean, cause that's how NYers roll now.

    He had it right the first time. Indeed it is because they voted that numbnuts in that NYers deserve the kind of local government that they have. If he hadn't been voted in then that would be a different story now wouldn't it?

    The other thing I don't like is that.....Bloomberg has not had to take anyone on in any Debate with most of the **** that comes out of his mouth.....usually he just gets out there spouting whatever. He isn't on the TV with the Pundits or Making Rounds on National Shows. So he never has to face anyone with his alleged ideas and or talking points for his delusions. Questions from the Media isn't debating or having a conversation.

    Either way this guy needs to be taken down and sent out to pasture. Even the Democrats should jump on that bandwagon since he is going after any that are Pro Gun. Interfering in their Democratic Elections across the country. If the Demos don't do something about it.....it will come back to haunt them in the long run. As Bloombergs puppet wont be representing the people. Just Bloomberg who put their azz in office and bankrolls them.

    Any from the Right should be about taking him down to since he will do the same with their state's election. What Bloomberg needs to start seeing is people all across the Country speaking out against his azz. All should do all they can to make it difficult for him to be around the Political scene. He is a threat to the Constitution. A Threat to Peoples Rights and Liberties, and a Threat to the Sovereignty of the Country.

    Damn right I did.

    It is s foregone conclusion that they had to vote for Bloomie.

    Somebody is just worried about increasing their post count by stating the obvious.
