Dissatisfaction with Federalism Grows

http://www.abc.net.au

-Dissatisfaction with Federalism Grows-

aka "Obey all directives"

When a State disagrees with a Federal program, what's the solution? Apparently in Australia, abolition of the State is the logical next step.

According to "polls", 4 out of 10 Australians would have no problem living under one unchecked Federal Government.

It's a worrying trend and something we should all shudder to consider. When the institutions of dissent are removed, what will become of our precious liberties?

With parallels to the US State vs. Federal friction, this is could set an alarming precedent.

A Surge of Hate

http://www.newsweek.com

Antigovernment extremists are on the rise—and on the march. This article compares Oath Keepers to Neo-Nazis and skinheads. Just ignorant "journalists" lumping everyone against government control into one big crazy bag. It must be because of "...the nation's first African-American president".
