Is anyone here as worried as I am about 1) Dems figuring out way for Obummer to run for third term   and 2) Obummer may make new gun control laws by executive order.

Both of these absolutely give me nightmares! Anyone else?

Restricting our rights as honest gub owners wii not stop the bad guy from getting and type of gun they want.

Comment by Bill Russell on January 7, 2013 at 11:25pm

We all must get together and stop this BS on Gun Control. It is our 2nd amenment right and should not be stepped on by any president or any member of the government. These left wing nuts will try anything to really restrict our gun rights if we let them.

I can't believe I hadn't found this group before! I have been involved with the TEA Party since 2009, was a member of the Leaders' Coalition, helped infiltrate and take over the CCRCC in 2009. I served as Deputy Comm Dir and Comm Dir, also elected to the E-Board before realizing that the "establishment Republicans" were fighting us every step of the way. So I finally gave up the pointless effort to affect any change among the Republicans, examined my principles and beliefs, and joined the Libertarian Party. The Libertarian Party in Nevada is going through major restructuring and strategic planning to evolve into a serious political party, and away from the "social club for misfits" as it had been considered previously. Not only do I serve as the Communications Director for the state party, I also edit the blog on our new web site LPNevda.org, include authoring articles as well. I was nominated at the state convention to run for Congress in CD-1 Nevada, the District vacated by Shelley Berkeley once she declared for the Senate race. While I have nothing against the five Republicans also running, I believe we must get away from the two party system which has caused us to be in the predicament in which we currently find ourselves, and electing another member of either major party is inviting more of the same - it is time for a real change. I support Governor Gary Johnson for President, the man has an outstanding record as Governor of New Mexico upon which to build. No more Obama, no way, no how! No more status quo!

ALERT ALERT

OMG!! -> Government Now Wants To Seize Your Car For Going 5MPH Over The Limit

We’ve discussed this on and off for several years now. Civil asset forfeiture is a legal process that allows the government to seize assets and cash from citizens without any due process or judicial oversight.

You don’t even have to be charged with a crime. You are assumed guilty unless you can somehow prove your innocence.

Of course, not everyone has this ability… if you aren’t local, state, or federal law enforcement, this is called stealing, and you go to prison.

But the government is actually a bigger problem than common thieves.

A 2015 report showed that law enforcement used civil asset forfeiture to steal more from US residents than every thief, robber, and burglar in America combined.

About $4.5 BILLION worth of cash, cars, homes, and other property is taken by civil asset forfeiture each year – hundreds of millions more than common criminals steal.

And it happens at every level. Your local cop can use civil asset forfeiture just like your state trooper. And then any one of the armed agents of the US government—from the FBI to the Fish and Wildlife Service—can rob you for whatever reason they want.

This travesty continues to grow because the cops who take your stuff get to keep it. Police departments and government agencies around the country depend on civil asset forfeiture to boost their budgets.

Cops will literally keep some of the cars they take as squad cars. And they make a fortune auctioning off the houses, boats, and anything else they confiscate.

Obviously this gives cops an incentive to steal, whether or not they actually think the property was used in a crime, or acquired illegally. Remember, civil asset forfeiture adds billions every year to their bottom line.

On Wednesday, the Supreme Court heard arguments in a case of civil asset forfeiture.

Tyson Timbs was convicted of selling a small amount of drugs to an undercover police officer. He was sentenced to house arrest, and paid about $1,200 in fines.

But then police used civil asset forfeiture to take his $42,000 Land Rover which Timbs purchased with money from a life insurance policy after his father died. The money did not come from selling drugs, or any other illegal activity.

Timbs sued, and the case made its way to the Supreme Court, because every lower court in Indiana said the forfeiture was perfectly legit.

The case revolves around whether or not the seizure of the Land Rover was an excessive fine under the 8th amendment, and whether or not this protection against excessive fines applies to state governments.

And the public got some crazy insight into the government’s position.

The Indiana Solicitor General was arguing in favor of civil asset forfeiture when Justice Stephen Breyer asked him a hypothetical.

Breyer asked, if a state needs revenue, could it force someone to forfeit their Bugatti, Mercedes, or Ferrari for speeding? Even if they were going just 5 miles per hour over the speed limit?

And the utterly appalling answer from the Indiana Solicitor General was, yes.

That’s right… the official government position is that they can steal any amount of your property in “connection” with any crime whatsoever, no matter how trivial the crime may be… even exceeding the speed limit by 5 miles per hour.

This is how overbearing and authoritarian the government has become in the land of the free.

This is how much power your local cop has… and the power only grows as you go to state, and federal officials.

If there is any solace in any of this, it is that the other Supreme Court Justices were reportedly laughing at this exchange.

The justices seemed incredulous that Indiana’s top lawyer was using such absurd assertions and flimsy reasoning in his arguments.

So, for now, we can keep our cars if we get pulled over for speeding. But that may not always be the case…

Depending on how this is ruled, it could pave the way for even more egregious abuses of power… or it could curb the practice, and reign in these thieves in uniforms.

Just understand where the government is coming from. These politicians, bureaucrats and officers think they can do whatever they want. Absolutely anything goes, with no limitation whatsoever.

And that makes it a little tough to feel like you really live in the land of the free.
