Afraid he would dismantle the security state built during the Bush years. Well rest easy cause he's got ya back! Obama supports extending Patriot Act provisions Hmmmm! 1) If red state totaliterians desire the security state and 2) President Obama will extend/maintain that security state and 3) Obama supporters are loyal to Obama no matter what by always saying any position he takes was his position all along and therefore and 4) We support because we support him (he's democrat, Bush was not, see post #2) then Doesn't that in effect make all the above the very same thing? Tell me again the difference between the democrat and republican parties or the difference between Statist conservatives, Statist liberals and Statist vulgar libertarians. (otherwise known as DC beltway minarchism) I guess it's like for 8 years they were anti-war Bush and anti-patriot act Bush so I guess following the old native american warning of "beware the one who speaks with folked tongue!" The new symbol of the proud and honorable American! Funny how we did things before Hitler came along and changed the construct!
