According to the Community Organizer in Chief’s Administration, you may be a “potential terrorist” if you believe, like the Founding Fathers did, in Federalism…

Rightwing extremism in the United States can be broadly divided into those groups, movements, and adherents that are primarily hate-oriented (based on hatred of particular religious, racial or ethnic groups), and those that are mainly antigovernment, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely.

So where would someone get a wacky idea that the power of the federal government are limited in favor of states rights? Oh yeah, the U.S. Constitution.

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

Must be why liberal MSM talking heads called our Founding Fathers terrorists, too.

And if you support the Right to Life or oppose illegal immigration… well, you may be an enemy of the state, too.

It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration.

You should assign them that book to read!

I use Wilson in my poli sci classes as an example of a really, really racist president with a deep streak of religious fanaticism. Considering all the stereotypes and the poor quality of political/historical teaching at the high school level, I get a lot of shocked looks when students find out that he wasn't a conservative Republican.

Liberal Fascism is indeed a very fascinating work....

I'm currently reading a book called Liberal Fascism, which, despite its provocative title, is an interesting political history of the Fascist movement and its roots. Some of the history presented of Wilson's administration I was unaware of, and found quite troubling. I mention it because there are some interesting parallels.

Neo-cons - folks I'd rather not associate with. Reminds me too much of when Phil Gramm ran for President....

"...but until just about four months ago I saw very few of you "pure" conservatives worried about warrantless wiretapping, extraconstitutional "justice", labelling of groups as possible terrorist groups based on a conflict of ideals instead of a clear threat,...."

Then you weren't paying attention. I'm not aware of a single conservative friend of mine that wasn't up in arms about that. The only conservative commentators I know of that supported it are the Ann Coulters and Sean Hannitys, who are the conservative equivalent of Ted Rall. Hardly the voices of traditional American conservatism. Neo-conservatism has nothing to do with traditional conservatism. Neo-cons are nothing more than hawkish socialists who left the democratic party and took over the republican. See for yourself:

I think we may see the pendulum swing, but not necessarily toward a more Reaganesque President. Instead, what might happen, and what I really hope for, is a change toward a more federalist administration, one who thinks that states are not just those things that issue driver's licenses and count for electoral votes every four years. We've seen the power of the federal government gone nuts for seventy years through both parties. For example, the recent bleatings from the ACORN Leader in Chief, as well as the Great Society, a wealth of unfunded mandates, regulatory burdens, and government intrusion come from the Democrats. But when you look closely at the Republicans, you also see a War on Drugs that becomes a war on civil liberties, mandatory sentencing guidelines, the 55 mph speed limit, a national minimum drinking age, more unfunded mandates, more regulatory burdens, and the medicare drug program and No Child Left Behind, two of the most well-meaning but worst-conceived and executed initiatives in the history of American government.

What we need, and what I hope we get, is a pendulum swinging away from "the federal government knows best" to one that allows that there are fifty other governments recognized by the Constitution, and sometimes they know better than the big nasty one in the middle.

Or that none of them know better how to manage people's lives than those people themselves.

A very good point! :)

Actually I was worried, and have been warning about warrantless wiretapping and roving wiretaps since the days of the Clinton Administration.

The point is, the current government is so Constitutionally illiterate that it doesn't even know the definition of the word federalism, and it is engaging in just the sort of groundless vilification that you warn against.
Comment by Jeff Larsen on April 18, 2009 at 9:34pm
Oh yea for the pendulum! Like we NEED some even-more-far-right clown to overcompensate for the far-left clown BOTH sides are so radicalized that they're useless to me and furthermore, I've had the honor of deemed an enemy of BOTH left and right just within the last week:

Guns -- hey, get your mitts off of my guns. ----> Oh noes, he's a wingnut!
Abortion -- it's a personal decision, keep it legal but help it be rare ----> And a moonbat too!

Our last fearless leader paved the road for our current dear leader to do most of these things you're in arms about, but until just about four months ago I saw very few of you "pure" conservatives worried about warrantless wiretapping, extraconstitutional "justice", labelling of groups as possible terrorist groups based on a conflict of ideals instead of a clear threat, ideological litmus tests in filling positions where simple COMPETENCE might have been of more service and the list goes on and on...

So, my sympathies but I've been watching this unfold for a while now and you're apparently only aware of this now because you're not with the "in crowd" anymore...
