Mark Levin: We Have the Elements of a Police State

On Thursday’s broadcast of Fox News Channel’s “Your World with Neil Cavuto,” conservative talk show host Mark Levin reacted to recent revelations that the National Security Agency had been collecting the phone records of millions of Verizon customers.

He said that the NSA news in addition to other openings for intrusion by the federal government are the makings of a “police state.”

“I tell you what I make of this — we have the elements of a police state here, and I’m not overstating it,” Levin said. “When you step back and realize the Supreme Court the other day ruled 5-to-4 that law enforcement can take DNA from you even if you’re arrested — by the way, you’re arrested even when you’re stopped for a speeding ticket, and Scalia was right, concerned about a national database. That goes way over the line of our traditions.”

Levin listed the areas where the federal government has the opening to exploit private information through its various agencies under the guises of welfare, law enforcement and national security.

    Unfortunately Mr Levin is right. I do not understand why obummer, holder and hillary are not subject to the same laws I am. NO ONE should be above the law! If I lied under oath my butt would go to jail. Their butts should be in jail also ! Plus obummer needs to be tried for treason and get the maximum penalty.

    If the IRS is not completely eliminated then only Democrats will get health care. Any others will find paperwork missing, medical requests denied, and policies that are too expensive to buy. Police State was O’s first term, now we are in a dictatorship.
