The Erosion of Speech:

Michelle Malkin has done a wonderful job of cataloging the intimidation tactics used over at the Obama camp.  This most recent instance is nothing new. The Obama campaign has a history of using thug tactics to shut their opponents up.

Case in point:
Here, Breitbart news covered last month the ongoing issue of Barack Obama's campaign imploring the Department of Justice to investigate stations and their managers that decided to run ads connecting Obama to various radicals, such as William Ayers.  

And I quote:
"Obama not only aired a response ad to the spot linking him to William Ayers, but he sought to block stations airing the commercial by warning station managers and asking the Justice Department to intervene. The campaign also planned to compel advertisers to pressure stations that continue to air the anti-Obama commercial."

We all know the narrative by now.  Free speech is reserved for liberals and other sixties radicals.  Not for the backward, hick conservatives "moose-killers" as Obama puts it, who kiss their siblings.  

In the last few months, various left wing netroots groups have been targeting Republican donors and threatening them with pursuant legal action.  The NYT reported:

"The warning letter is intended as a first step, alerting donors who might be considering giving to right-wing groups to a variety of potential dangers, including legal trouble, public exposure and watchdog groups digging through their lives."

By reading into the Obama campaign's record of attempting to utterly squelch freedom of speech, it seems that the possibility of Obama instituting the Fairness Doctrine and eliminating talk radio upon presidency is real.

You see, big government liberals do NOT like competition. This is why they want to eliminate homeschooling, private school vouchers, and media outlets that don't tote their line. The government hates competition. This is why they want to control everything. Why would you think Barack Obama, one of the most far left Senators this nation has ever seen, would be any different?

Welcome to liberalism.

My friends (McCain, anyone?), I am pleading with you to consider the ridiculousness of your choice for president. The government is NOT better at spending your money than you are. You should NOT be reliant on subpar government healthcare service, and other promises that fail to deliver.  You are capable of making the right choices for yourself, and should NOT have the government penalize you for making the right choices, while the government bails out people who don't.

The government is not your savior, and the government is not your keeper. You are your brother's keeper, and you are your sister's keeper, as Barack Obama has reiterated.  The difference between conservatives and liberals is that we believe we are our brother's and sister's keeper without compulsion. You should have the free will to be charitable, and no government bureaucrat should force you to be generous and magnanimous through taxes. 

The government should not be anyone's keeper. You are your own. If you vote for Barack Obama, you are voting for bigger government, the erosion of speech, higher taxes, the very foreign policy that handed us September 11th, and the continuation of the very economic policies that have led us to this bloody mess.

The emperor has no clothes, and Barack Obama has no change.
