Obama is watching you.

Democrats viciously denounced President George W. Bush for supposedly infringing on Americans’ civil liberties by monitoring citizens in communication with al-Qaeda and terrorists in general. But they’ve been strangely quiet as Obama’s policies dwarf any ‘infringement’ that might have occurred under the Bush Administration.

Obama extended Bush’s Patriot Act, has been compiling a “vast campaign database” with voters’ personal information, and granted the government authority to store private information about American citizens who are not suspected of any crime— Obama has every American citizen under virtual surveillance, and plans to use thousands of surveillance drones in U.S. skies.  We already knew all of this, but there hasn’t been a collective burst of outrage from liberals and Democrats– because liberals and Democrats accept tyranny when they are the ones being tyrants. So we can’t expect liberals and Democrats to be upset about this fact either: Obama’s surveillance program is bigger than Bush’s.

Update: Obama is going to give all U.S. spy agencies full access to a massive database that contains financial data on American citizens and others who bank in the country, according to a Treasury Department document”– giving them “the ability to analyze more raw financial data than they have ever had before.”
