    The the OP:

    Freedom of speech: degraded by political correctness
    The right to bear arms: well, no reason to explain that further
    Freedom of religion :It has become perfectly acceptable to insult someone's religious views as long as they are Christian
    The right to life: drone strikes with no trial
    Right to Liberty: Patriot Act anyone?
    Pursuit of happiness: Seen your paycheck lately? You can pursue it, but the government is going to take it away
    Speech freedom ? Never was 100%, nor can it be....And does it really hurt to be nice rather than nasty; respectful rather than disrespectful ?
    Bearing "arms" ? Do we need lethal means of self-defense ?
    Freedom of religion ? Maybe we need freedom FROM religion !...actually freedom from extremists is closer..
    Right to life ? I for one am not concerned about terrorists of any nationality.
    Right to liberty ? Have you forgotten 9-11 already ?
    Pursuit...... ? According to Romney, he, the rich, pays 14% and the poor pay nothing.....middle class tax rates are fairly low as well
    There is a reason that your opinion is belittled...which , IMO, is not the best thing to do..

    Is this true, or is this what you are taught to think from right-wing extremists ?
    And, if so, why ?

    I'm a quasi-fascist, so sort of.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Well, if we're heading towards a police state, we might as well go there marching

    Got a feeling we're going to need the practice

    Are you an extremist? Are you a left wing or right wing extremist? Or a left subtleist? Or a semi-right fascist? Why all the labels? How would you label a freedom-loving American who - or better yet - how would you label Thomas Jefferson? Would he fall into any of these labels?

    Re: The march towards a police state continues

    Marx was unfortunately correct in his assessment that a person's social state is directly tied to the economic status of their nation. As the means of production continue to vanish from the American landscape and we shift toward a service economy, people are going to be expected to live on less. Less median income means people are not going to have the same standard of living anymore. That's what the attack on unions and worker rights is really about.

    Americans, both right and left, have long held onto this idea that they are entitled to a certain standard of living. The fact is that they aren't and they are about to be shown that. A downgrade in living status is not necessarily a bad thing, but we need to make sure that the government doesn't make power grabs during that transition. So far, it seems like it has gotten away with way too much. Just because we need to downgrade our living status does not mean we should be downgrading our rights.

    Unless the government (or the people?) does something to reframe the fiduciary responsibility of the corporate infrastructure, all of the capital and financial assets that once made our nation powerful are going to continue to hemorrhage, and we will lose a lot of the liberties we've had along with them.

    Another mindless right wing meme. I got an email a while back about removing the bayonets from Marines rifles near Obama. Oh and the bolts out of M14s. Silly RW stuff.
