"It may sound a bit crazy and off base, but the thing is, he's the one who proposed this national security force," Rep. Paul Broun said of Obama in an interview Monday with The Associated Press. "I'm just trying to bring attention to the fact that we may - may not, I hope not - but we may have a problem with that type of philosophy of radical socialism or Marxism."My question for Congressman Broun:
Broun cited a July speech by Obama that has circulated on the Internet in which the then-Democratic presidential candidate called for a civilian force to take some of the national security burden off the military.
"That's exactly what Hitler did in Nazi Germany and it's exactly what the Soviet Union did," Broun said. "When he's proposing to have a national security force that's answering to him, that is as strong as the U.S. military, he's showing me signs of being Marxist."
Where were you and where was your outrage when W and his minions proposed the TIPS (Terrorism Information and Prevention System) program?There is a name for a nation that asserts the unlimited right to spy on its citizens:Operation TIPS, where the last part is an acronym for the Terrorism Information and Prevention System, was a failed program designed by President George W. Bush to have United States citizens report suspicious activity.Where were you and where was your outrage when W's Administration successfully coerced telecom companies into tapping U.S. citizens' phones without warrants?
