    Then use the IRS and justice department to limit free speech.

    What's the real motive?

    Just sayin.

    I don't know but it's just sitting there waiting to be abused. Therefore youhave to trust the government not to. Currently the govwrnment consists of Obama , HOLDER, Clapper, and their henchmen. Good luck with that!

    C'mon people, trust the government. The IRS wouldn't misuse their power or information they have by turning over your tax infor or now your medical info to say your political enemies would they? The FDA or the FBI wouldn't take that information or EPA or OSHA wouldn't harass you or your organization if you didn't fall in line would they?
    Naw, too much integrity and oversight , never happen, Oh wait..

    As part of the national security state, the NSA is hardly a liberal institution out to get conservatives. If it is to be labeled politically, I would call it fascist. Fascists don't target conservatives. They target the whole populace.

    The fact that the IRS has currently targeted conservatives doesn't mean diddly-squat. Liberal presidents (Roosevelt, Clinton, Obama) use the IRS to target conservative enemies, and conservative presidents (most notably Nixon) use it to target liberal enemies. The media is an uproar as if this is something new, when in fact it's all about TV ratings and petty politics. It should be noted that FoxNews covers all the current scandal hearings live, while CNN during the hearings prefers to report live on extreme weather, Tim Tebow, and whatever else it can dig up.

    ^^^ No, he didn't really say all that. You must have misunderstood, or don't understand nuance.
