This troubled me when I heard it:

The same President who insists he has the authority to wiretap "enemies" without warrants, imprison "enemies" without hearings or lawyers or even notifying families, even torture "enemies," said today that YOU are an enemy.


There's tougher, more totalitarian language coming out of 1600 lately. When the leader of a nation begins to marginalize the folks who disagree with his policies, it shows one of two things. One, they're desperate and see the writing on the wall. Two, they already have enough control over the process they feel they are untouchable. Both scenarios worry me.

The first, because desperate men resort to desperate measures. The second, because it portends freedom and civil liberites will be further curtailed.
