41% of Dems think president should have power to kill suspected American terrorist on American soil
Hotair ^

Posted on 03/05/2013 6:59:52 AM PST by chessplayer

“On his own.” To be clear, they think he should have the power to do this “on his own.” This is what years of screeching during the Bush era about “the unitary executive” has come to.

A SUSPECTED terrorist. When Bush targeted actual NON-AMERICAN al-Qaeda members OVERSEAS, the left went berserk and said they had constitutional rights to a fair trial.

I’m guessing that, maybe, 39% of Democrats think Obama should be able to kill anyone he wants at any time. He’s the president, right??

DHS definition of terrorist: Someone who did not vote for Obaba or someone who makes any critical remark re. Obaba or his wife Mrs. Marcos. Or anyone who attends a christian church, believes in traditional American values, respects the U.S.Constitution, likes NASCAR, guns, hunting and fishing,...or is white.

Michael: My father is no different than any powerful man, any man with power, like a president or senator.

Kay Adams: Do you know how naive you sound, Michael? Presidents and senators don’t have men killed.

Michael: Oh. Who’s being naive, Kay?

So, if the POTUS just SUSPECTS you of terrorism, you are no longer a human being with rights, you’re a target?

Mighty convenient method of getting rid of your political enemies............

According to Bill Cosby, anybody who opposes Ubama is a racist.

If they are racists, they're probably terrorists, too.

Purchasing billions of rounds of ammo, close to three thousand armored vehicles for civilian use, thousands of surveillance drones, webs of cameras to watch citizen movement, FEMA corps, Millions in DHS grants to civilian law enforcement (for that civilian force just as well armed), and NDAA with detention provisions for American citizens.

This used to be conspiracy stuff....not any longer!

This government is out of freakin control y'all.

Sadly, 26% of Republicans agreed with this as well. I imagine if we had a GOP President or even a Democrat less offensive than Obama, that number would be quite a bit higher.

We need to stop being such cowards. Our young men in the military are putting their lives on the line every day, and many pay for our freedoms with their life and limbs, yet we are so quick to sacrifice those basic freedoms to maybe reduce our odds of dying in a terrorist attack from 1 in a million to one in 2 million.

We each have about a 1 in 7,000 chance of dying in a car accident, this year. Are we willing to give up our cars to reduce that much more likely threat, the way we give up our God given, Constitutional rights, to reduce the far more remotepossibility of dying at the hands of terrorists?

Any American who is not willing to live with a 1 in a million chance of being killed by terrorists in order to keep our freedoms and way of life, is not worthy of being called an American, or of the blood of the soldiers who have died protecting our rights.

Can we have a competition to see who is #1 on the list?....

Aside from myself I know many how have emailed, faxed, and openly criticized not only Nobama and his ilk but also his GOP infiltrators.

Gather up the Guantanamo Bay terrorists release them in a field and blast them with drones. Dems should be all for that plan.

I listened to John Bolton discuss this on Stoessel 2 weeks ago. He says that the US Constitution gives the president the authority as Commander in Chief to kill enemies of the US no matter where they’re from. He was very convincing.

The Left hated filthy, dirty money in politics — until Obama raised $1 billion dollars from all sources, including foreign.

The Left hated waterboarding — until Obama created kill lists and claimed he can kill Americans,

The Left hated the Patriot Act — until Obama reauthorized it and vastly expanded it.

The Left hated Gitmo — until Obama quietly kept the place running 5 years after promising to shut it down.

The Left hated any interference with controling the Internet — until Obama created a kill switch and set up vast government Internet spy and tracking operations.

The Left hated any invasion of privacy — until Obama set up a network of drones to spy on Americans.

The Left hated Bushs’ “wanted: dead or alive” talk — until Obama’s agencies bought billions of rounds of ammunition, bout thousands of drones, and purchased thousand of civilian police armored vehicles.

A drone was spotted near NYC today.

Waiting for one to get in the way of air traffic. That really scares me..

Y’know, if he’s on American soil, and not a “clear, and present danger” you need to arrest him - and I have been arguing that it was okay to kill Americans working for Al Qaeda or the Taliban over-seas.

“””41% of Dems think president should have power to kill suspected American terrorist on American soil”””

0% of dems supported Bush doing the same thing.

You can always count on the Left to be incapable of applying historical perspective.

And rock stupid in the critical thinking skills area.

Ask a leftist: So when a Republican President nominates Rush Limbaugh to head the committee that determines which Americans should be liquidated, you’ll be ok with that, too?

Evil, evil people.

Personally, I think anyone who believes that Presidents. Dem and Pub, haven’t been killing ‘suspected terrorists’ for a couple hundred years now is kidding themselves.

There is a reason for compartmentalized security clearances.

The media had journalists (including Time) who were in communication with Al Qaida. They didn’t want their “objective” anti-American agents being exposed and accused of treason in war time.

They didn't even support the tapping of phone lines or waterboarding (which our own soldiers experience as a part of training).

Then again, they were ok with the war crime torture, abuse, and murder of a POW named Momar Gaddafi (Sec. of State Hillary Clinton boasted "WE came, WE saw, HE DIED!!!"

It depends on what your definition of “terrorist” is now doesn’t it?

They have the same ATC system on board. They would show up to the controllers and on board an airliner as an aircraft. They thought about all that years ago when drones were near missing aircraft in Iraq.

They gave lip service to outrage.

There are plenty of Republicans here who are outraged at this and yet *still* defend the War on Terrorism.

There are plenty of people on both sides of the aisle who excuse government overreach when *their* party does it, but scream when the other party does.

The truly outraged people are those who either did not make excuses when “their party” did it, or who did—but have since repented of it and refuse to do so any longer.

Suspsected American Terrorist = can you say “Freeper”.

Are we ready to repeal the Patriot Act yet (for starters)?

What a switch that highlights the “moral” flexablity of those who call themselves members of the democratic party.

I suppose the real story here is the fact that we are indeed at war with ourselves. Democrats don’t mind unbridled power so long as it is in their man’s hands. Many republicans feel the same way. What we can’t stand or trust is each-other.

I suppose its just a matter of time before we start going after each other. Democratic crazies seem to be the most proactive, although their targets tend to be mostly other democrats.

Sooner or later their radical actions won’t seem so crazy to a growing share of members of both political factions. The Hostility within our hearts is already here in the form of a political Civil War. Frankly its only a matter of time and pressure before that war becomes violent.

They just keep raising the stakes.
