Forum Post: Obama Says He Needs More Power

Why was the Patriot Act and listening to phone calls from foreign countries bad when GW Bush was president, but now that Obama is president, we don't hear a peep about there being abuse of power in the executive branch? Why have I not seen any protest about the President asking for more power in the SoTU speech the other night? Why don't I see any complaints about all the czars he has appointed and how they are ruling by unelected fiat?

just remember there are more of us, than there are of them, if we each stand for liberty as in "give me liberty or give me death" and take one of them out with you whilst you stand for your liberty on your property, when they come against you, they will eventually run out of soldiers, and the problem will fix itself, but if we blindly submit without opposition, as we saw in Germany, the few can control the many.

It's sadly obvious. People in general don't really care. That's why banks and corporations do what they do and politicians trade contributions for favors. There is also bias against one party within the media, but for the most part it's simply that the average person doesn't get involved at all in things.
