Hope and change. What exactly has changed? I see people debating the two men constantly. Point out a crime Obama has committed, and the reply usually includes the words racist and Bush. From what I have seen though, Obama didn’t overturn anything Bush did, other than letting some radical Islamist out of Guantanamo. Obama expanded on everything Bush did.

*Bush started the drone program.

Obama expanded the drone program and signed for them over our skies.

*Bush gave them the right to tap a phone number, without a name.

Obama expanded the NSA and gave them the right to record our phone calls and e-mails, without warrant.

*Bush dropped bombs on four countries-Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan and Somalia.

Obama dropped bombs on Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Somalia, Yemen, Libya and Syria. Obama released a defense budget that included an increase of $2.5 billion over the previous year to expand the fight with ISIS to North and West Africa, and billions more for sending heavy weapons, armored vehicles, and other equipment to Eastern and Central Europe to counter Russian aggression. In the past several weeks alone, we’ve learned of Pentagon plans to dispatch military advisers to Nigeria against the jihadist group Boko Haram and to launch an aerial offensive in Libya against the Islamic State.

*Bush gave them the right to imprison foreigners, without trial.

Obama gave them the right to imprison and murder American citizens, without trial.

*Bush killed American Kamal Derwish. Claimed it was an accident.

Obama had four Americans killed, including a sixteen year old teenager.

Claimed he didn’t have to tell us why.

Is it not time to stop arguing among ourselves over their distractions and realize Democrats and Republicans are two heads of the same snake? We have over forty political parties, and yet we have let them force us into choosing from two.

I want a political party that stands by the Constitution.

I want our military to arrest all who committed treason, by signing the 2012 NDAA, regardless of party.

-John Johnson

Obama Promised to End America’s Wars—Has He?

–In December 2011, President Obama signed the 2012 NDAA, codifying indefinite military detention without charge or trial into law for the first time in American history. The NDAA’s dangerous detention provisions would authorize the president — and all future presidents — to order the military to pick up and indefinitely imprison people captured anywhere in the world, far from any battlefield. The ACLU will fight worldwide detention authority wherever we can, be it in court, in Congress, or internationally.

Worse, the NDAA authorizes the military to detain even US citizens under the broad new anti-terrorism provisions provided in the bill, once again without trial.
