By Chuck Baldwin.  [May 9, 2003]





[Hollywood Investigator]  Readers need to know that I am about as right-wing as one can get. I am pro-life, pro-Second Amendment, and pro-family. My conservative credentials are open for all to see. I was the Florida State Director of the Moral Majority. I was a member of the Christian Coalition. I am a Life Member of the Gun Owners of America and an annual member of the National Rifle Association. I am a Christian fundamentalist without apology.  Beyond that, I am pro-Confederacy.

I am also a firm believer in constitutional government, and that seems to be where most conservatives and I part company. It seems that when it comes to advancing big government, conservatives are as culpable as liberals are, maybe more.

I don't understand how one can claim to be a conservative, especially a Christian conservative, and support massive growth and expansion of the federal government. Yet, that is exactly what most conservatives are doing today.

President Bush and his fellow Republicans are in the process of expanding the power of the federal government by unprecedented levels. The new Department of Homeland Security is the embryo of totalitarian government in the United States. Bush and Company are literally creating a federal police state in our country, and most conservatives and most Christians actually seem happy about it.

The May 2 edition of The New York Times reported, "The Bush administration and leading Senate Republicans sought today to give the Central Intelligence Agency and the Pentagon far-reaching new powers to demand personal and financial records of people in the United States as part of foreign intelligence and terrorism operations, officials said." This is just the latest such report.

It seems obvious that Bush and his power-hungry piranhas will not be content until the federal government has total knowledge and total control over every phase and aspect of our lives! This administration is the literal fulfillment of George Orwell's Big Brother! And conservatives are supporting it lock, stock and barrel!

In the end, it doesn't really matter whether it is a liberal government or a conservative government that puts the chains of tyranny around our necks, we are equally enslaved! And right now, it is the so-called conservatives in the Republican Party who are destroying constitutional government and eviscerating personal liberties.

For years, those on the Left tried to create fear in the hearts of the American people at the prospect of what would happen if the Right were given control of the federal government. Well, it seems to me that their fears are warranted. I'm on the Right, and conservatives are scaring me to death.
