Freedom Concerns


Supreme Courts Affirm The Police State

Our descent into a police state is complete, as evidenced by rulings by the Indiana and U.S. Supreme Courts which, last week, effectively and finally abolished the 4th Amendment.

What Now?

Over the past several months, we have seen rioting in some Arab and European countries. The riots were sparked by the high costs of food, government austerity measures and government oppression. We have some of the same dynamic going on in the United States.

AP Poll: Obama At 60 Percent Approval (If You Ask Democrats)

Skeptics and believers alike were shocked by the results of a recent Associated Press poll, showing President Barack Obama at a 60 percent approval rating. Experts suggested the news of Osama bin Laden’s “recent” death played a primary role in putting Obama’s approval rating at its highest point in two years.
