Politics pisses me off. I often times hear about how we are "losing our rights". Typically it's the right wing people in the US that are saying this. Many claim that Obama is stripping away our rights. What those rights are or how he's doing it no one can really say. All they know is that he is tearing the Constitution to shreds and if reelected we will live in a totalitarian state with no religion, freedom, guns or property rights. I don't like Obama. Nor do I like the GOP. But I am just tired of all the idiots out there who just can't seem to think for just a second. WE HAVE MORE RIGHTS NOW THEN EVER IN OUR HISTORY. Religious rights, speech rights, rights for women, rights for minorities, rights for non property owners, rights for the youth, rights for the old. As we move forward there is more freedom for all of us. So next time you hear someone bellyaching about how we are losing their rights just imagine a time that many people still can remember when women, and minorities were still second class citizens and gays could not be open about their lives. A time when men were chattel and the government turned a blind eye to the poor.

First of all I never said anything about a “one world government”. It seems like you believe in some variant of the NWO conspiracy, which is utter crap. I do agree with you about a good deal of leaders being in bed to some degree with wealthy individuals or companies. So rather than a long ramble about a one world government you could answer my question.

I also never mentioned Islam, the religion of Muslims. Some sects do want Sharia law to govern the world, just as some Christian sects want a Christian dominated world. Let me say that there will never be official Sharia law in the US. There are more Mormons in America than Muslims, more Atheists than Muslims, more Jews than Muslims, and all of those groups pale in comparison to 80+% of Christians in America.

A significant part of your reply was rhetorical questions. No, I don’t want Sharia law, nor do I want a one world government. I would feel bad if I was robbed. And the countries you brought up (I am assuming they are European) have mixed results with more unification. One advantage of the EU is a long stretch of peace on the European continent.

You claim to read all the sources (which is impossible) yet you just spout more conspiracy nonsense. No one is going to make you a Muslim. No one is taking away your guns. No one is trying to make a one world government, and even if they tried they will fail, just look at the UN.

Seems like you're way ahead of me!

This video might shed some light on how our rights and wealth are being stripped away gradually, especially after 9/11 with the Patriot Act and Patriot Act II:

Well first I want to admit that my responses to Pam A. where unfair and I was being an asshole. I don't have the time right at this moment to read and watch what has been posted here however I will soon. As of now I am skeptical however I want to approach this with an open mind rather than how I used to approach things with my Mormon mindset. I apologize again and I will look into this.

I'm neither conservative or liberal, and I think many of our freedoms are dissapearing and many are gone.  You can get my views by reading the basics of what the Libertarian Party believes:

Here's the latest try at usurping our freedoms:
