Where have all the Conservatives gone?

Why do Conservatives oppose freedom?
Conservatives attack Oliver Stone for daring to attack Obama?!?!?
Figure that one out.

By Gary;

I used to proudly call myself a hard core Conservative.  But no more. 

Years back I became what I call a Constitutional Federalist.  The so-called "Conservatives" in America left me behind as they adopted Statism and started pissing on the Bill of Rights and Constitution in order to create a centralized authoritarian Police State.

The Edward Snowden Internet spying scandal highlights the changes in Conservatism for anyone interested to see.  Instead of expressing outrage at unconstitutional spying, most "Conservatives" in Congress were circling the wagons to protect the Surveillance State that they voted to create and fund.

Take Oliver Stone for example.  The so-called "Conservative" blog of L. Brent Bozell III, News Busters, rips into Stone for daring to speak his mind on the 4th of July.  Oh the horror of it all!!!!

An uppity Stone used his 1st Amendment rights to attack the growing American Police State at a film festival in the Czech Republic, "The world is in danger with our tyranny" he said.
"It's a disgrace that Obama is more concerned with hunting down Snowden than reforming these George Bush-style eavesdropping techniques...To me, Snowden is a hero, because he revealed secrets that we should all know, that the United States has repeatedly violated the Fourth Amendment."

"He should be welcomed, and offered asylum," Stoned continued, "but he has no place to hide because every country is intimidated by the United States. This should not be. This is what's wrong with the world today, and it's very important that the world recognizes and gives asylum to Snowden. Everyone in the world is impacted by the United States' Big Brother attitude toward the world."

But News Busters ranted that Stone, SHOCK!, didn't stop there.

In front of a room of mostly "European" journalists, Stone used his Constitutional rights in plain view and said, "We need countries to say no to the United States."

"The United States is the dominant power in the universe, with its eavesdropping abilities, cyber abilities," he continued. "And the world is in danger with our tyranny."

Stone is missing a few cans in his six pack.  But when he talks about the Bill of Rights he is dead on correct.

But don't you dare demand your Constitutional rights that the Founding Fathers fought for.  Modern Conservatives and their Liberal allies do not approve.  The People need to know their place.

I may not be happy with how the Conservatives are weak-kneed in trying to stop Obama, especially as he is tearing down the constitution, but I am NOT going to support Edward Snowden. The guy leaked details to China, Russia, and Venezuela. That, last I checked, fits the definition of treason. And quite frankly, the fact that Marxists are cheering him on should have been a big hint that he is NOT worth rooting for.

That's not to say I don't applaud whistleblowers. If they did it through the proper channels, especially at risk to their own life, like with the Clinton Chronicles, I'd actually give them a high-five and shake their hand, even give a fist bump. But that requires supplying said information STRICTLY to the American people only. NOT to places like China, Venezuela, or Russia. That's why I don't support Edward Snowden.
