What If Barack Obama Is A Traitor?

Posted In Activism,Blog,Politics

by David Seaman

What if we voted for Barack Obama, a rational moderate, and instead got one of the most irrational, secretive, and authoritarian presidential administrations of the past 100 years? 
What if Ron Paul and Buddy Roemer are right about the election process, and about the erosion of our core civil rights? And what if Barack Obama truly DOES think the Constitution is an outdated joke?

In the video above, I’m not actually expressing my own opinion, instead I’m reading – verbatim – from an article in The Atlantic. In it, staff writer Conor Friedersdorf poses the following question: How would you have reacted in 2008 if any Republican ran promising to do the following?

1) Codify indefinite detention into law; (2) draw up a secret kill list of people, including American citizens, to assassinate without due process; (3) proceed with warrantless spying on American citizens; (4) prosecute Bush-era whistleblowers for violating state secrets; (5) reinterpret the War Powers Resolution such that entering a war of choice without a Congressional declaration is permissible; (6) enter and prosecute such a war; (7) institutionalize naked scanners and intrusive full body pat-downs in major American airports; (8) oversee a planned expansion of TSA so that its agents are already beginning to patrol American highways, train stations, and bus depots; (9) wage an undeclared drone war on numerous Muslim countries that delegates to the CIA the final call about some strikes that put civilians in jeopardy; (10) invoke the state-secrets privilege to dismiss lawsuits brought by civil-liberties organizations on dubious technicalities rather than litigating them on the merits; (11) preside over federal raids on medical marijuana dispensaries; (12) attempt to negotiate an extension of American troops in Iraq beyond 2011 (an effort that thankfully failed); (14) reauthorize the Patriot Act; (13) and select an economic team mostly made up of former and future financial executives from Wall Street firms that played major roles in the financial crisis.

The 14 points Friedersdorf highlights are, to the best of my knowledge, firm facts. For example, it is a fact that Obama’s administration has continued to preside over federal raids on medical marijuana dispensaries, and that the TSA has greatly expanded its grasp (no pun intended) since he took office. And, obviously, the indefinite detention of US citizens without due process, was signed into law by Obama when he ratified the NDAA – that alone being a treasonous act given it clearly runs counter to America’s Constitution.
