Chuck Baldwin on Civil Rights

Constitution Party nominee for President; Reform Party nominee in several states


Patriotism is not love of Big Government or Big Brother

You and I are constantly being watched, listened to, monitored, taped, and stalked by our own government. So, do any of us really believe that we still live in a free country? All this talk about a war on terrorism is a bunch of hooey. What is really happening is a war on freedom. The so-called "War on Terror" is only a smokescreen to hide the real agenda, which is to develop a federal police state where individual liberty is completely vanquished. And the really sad part is the American people seem to be willing to embrace and accept this burgeoning police state.

But since when did patriotism come to mean the acceptance of a total surveillance society? When did patriotism come to mean the love of Big Government or infatuation with Big Brother? When did patriotism come to mean the sacrifice of liberty in the name of security? When did patriotism come to mean the surrender of constitutional government and personal freedoms? When did patriotism come to mean submission to tyrannical bureaucracies?
