Chicago’s Mayor “Big Brother” Daley

Will Malven

Okay folks, now’s the time to nip this in the bud. If you don't want President Barack "the Constitution's an Impediment" Obama to control every aspect of your lives, you've got to act now.

Mayor Daley has announced his intention to place a surveillance camera on every street corner of the city. The crime fighting potential for this proposal is far outweighed by the potential for abuse.

Now I can hear the jeers from the "If you don't have anything to hide, why should you worry?" crowd, however that question presupposes the innate good will of those controlling the cameras.

If your goal is to oppress the American people, what better way that placing a camera on every street corner to be watched and reported on by some faceless bureaucrat who may or may not have a personal vendetta against you, or simply may not like your face?

The people who are right now seeking to take control of our economy are the same people who would control these cameras. Well here is the Sun Times story:

Surveillance cams help fight crime, city says
PUBLIC SAFETY Goal is to have them on every corner

City Hall Reporter
February 19

Mayor Daley has argued that security and terrorism won’t be an issue if his Olympic dreams come true because, by 2016, there will be a surveillance camera on every street corner in Chicago.

But even before that blanket coverage begins, the “Big Brother’’ network is being put to better use.

Call takers and dispatchers now see real-time video if there is a surveillance cameras within 150 feet of a 911 call, thanks to a $6 million upgrade to the city’s “computer-aided dispatch” system.

When live video appears, call takers can pan, tilt and zoom those cameras to get the best possible view of a crime or disaster scene.

Just remember folks, cameras that can see every crime, can observe every conversation. How long do you think it will be before these cameras have microphones attached...for our own good, mind you...just so that police can hear the crime being committed...of course.

As T.S. Elliot so eloquently put it:

This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
Not with a bang but a whimper.

These kinds of actions taken by our elected "representatives" exemplify what is meant by adages like "the thin end of the wedge" or "the camel's nose in the tent." Just as America is now engaged in a struggle against creeping socialism; it is engaged in a battle, of equal or greater import, against creeping oppression.

A man even wiser that T.S. Elliot, Edmund Burke issued an even direr warning:

"When bad men combine, the good must associate; else they will fall one by one, an unpitied sacrifice in a contemptible struggle."

 Folks, now is the time in which "the good must associate." Those who believe in freedom, Liberty, and an American government as it was set out by our forefathers in the Constitution of The United States of America must now set out in clear opposition to actions such as Mayor Daley's.

Act now America before it is too late; before they begin hauling away people like Rick Santelli, the CNBC reporter, who called for a new "
Tea Party."

Ask those who lived behind the "Iron Curtain" for fifty years what it was like to have to watch your every word and action, to beware of every person around you, lest you be denounced-with or without cause-and thus be dragged off to some "Lubyanka" jail cell.

This is toward what we are moving inexorably and if we don't do something now, we will be there some time in the future asking ourselves "How did we get to this point?" Some of us are asking ourselves that very question now.

How did this nation, this Republic, manage to travel so far down the road of socialism and oppression? Why is there any such category in the statutes as "hate crimes?" What happened to the concepts of individual responsibility and individual freedom? When did this "sweet land of Liberty" become the "domain of the eternal victim?" How is it that the American people elected an unprepared, unqualified individual who believes that the Constitution acts as an "impediment" to, rather than an outline for, good government?

Well here we see just a bit of the explanation. Mayor Richard "Big Brother" Daley is pointing the way to oppressive government...
for our own good
...of course.

Long Live Our American Republic!!!!
