Internet Censorship in the United States: Is Big Brother Watching You?
What is the Cybersecurity Act?
Under the guise of safety, the Cybersecurity Act of 2009 will snatch what's left of your rights.
The Act, introduced by Senators John Rockefeller and Olympia Snowe, offers the White House unprecedented authority to shut down private domestic networks during a 'cybersecurity emergency.'
What constitutes a cybersecuriy emergency? Perhaps we'll never know. It's up to the President to decide.
The Cybersecurity Act of 2009 also grants the Commerce Department authority to track electronic threats and supersede any existing laws, regulations and restricting access to data from private networks.
Is This the CHANGE We Sought After?
The Cybersecurity Act of 2009 is a deliberate attempt to manipulate American citizens under the guise of 'security.'
This is just another 'thing' for the government to take control of by the end of 2009.
Auto Inductry? Check!
Internet? Soon to be a Check!
We've been raised to believe that we live in a free country. Our feedom is disappearing before our eyes, folks. Unless we stand up for our rights, we're going to wake up in a totalitarian regime.
You may scoff at the idea of America becoming a totalitarian regime, but it doesn't start with a madman and tanks rolling down Flatbush Avenue. It starts small. The CHANGE is subtle. Your constitution and your rights dissapear little by little, one by one.
One day you're camping with your family in the mountains, a year later you have to drive through 6 checkpoints to get to the same location. That's how it works, folks.
Is this the CHANGE we sought after? Will these impending regulations be used to eviscerate the First Amendment?
Are Americans suffering from PBSD (Post-Bush Stress Disorder) or are we still waiting for CHANGE? In addition to preserving the anti-terror policies that infringed upon our civil liberties in the first place, Barack Obama is adding new laws, rules and regulations.The Cyber Security Act of 2009 has the potential to be just as intrusive as the Patriot Act.
Can the Lessons of Previous Generations Be Unalterably Lost Upon Their Successors?
"A claim for equality of material position can be met only by a government with totalitarian powers." - Friedrich August Von Hayek
"I think when you spread the wealth around it's good for everybody." - Barack Obama
"The great strength of the totalitarian state is that it forces those who fear it to imitate it." - Adolph Hitler
"Mark my words, mark my words, it will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did JFK. Remember I said standing here in your room if you do not hear anything else I said– watch, we are going to have an international crisis– a GENERATED CRISIS– to test the mettle of this guy and he is going to make some really tough–I don’t know what the decision is going to be, but I will promise you that it will occur; I guarantee you it’s going to happen!" - Joe Biden
