Who doubted that the progressives left in total charge of the organs of the state would use all of the power their office gave them to destroy their opponents? The ATF sells guns to the Mexican drug cartels in a years long sting operation that had everything but any hint of a sting or purpose that justified the operation. The FBI announces that it sees absolutely no requirement to obtain a search warrant before reading all of our email. The DHS/Courts find no difficulty with demanding that travelers crossing our borders furnish the passwords to their electronic memory devices so that they can be vacuumed up and then analyzed for years in government computer labs for evidence to be used against you in court. The police see no problem with using the United States Post Office to mail drugs to you and then sending around a SWAT force to shoot your dog, throw you to the ground and tie up your kids and mother for 6 hours while demanding that you TELL them who sent you the drugs. Bans Big Gulps. And now the IRS comes forward and ruefully confesses that yeah, they did audit an enemies list of all conservatives.
"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive." C.S. Lewis
You know who does this sort of thing right?
