In the transformation of America, did Obama mean from a Constitutional Republic to a third world country? Are we moving from the concept of individual freedom to a collectivist society defined by the state?

Dave--You may be right. The blood begins to boil however, and the king is losing his clothes. Sad days are coming and not unplanned at that. Orwell, Lincoln, Washington, Adams, Jefferson, Franklin, Madison, Churchill and Eisenhower.
What we're doing in the UK buddy is finding out our "exact" rights, as written down "in stone" under Common Law..It turns out we have far more rights & power than they ever told us we had, & a lot of peeps are becoming Freemen On The Land. :-
