Do you favor the use of drones to unilaterally kill Americans who are a threat to the nation?

  1. Yes, the government has every right to take action when our nation is under threat.
  2. No, this leaves open the door to killing without due process; how do we know what is behind the decision.

I would bet that the 24% that agree with killing Americans using drones are probably the people that voted for President Obama and therefore think that they aren't on his hit list. Well guess what, we're all on his hit list once the drones start flying armed here in America!

Another horrible question by the SG. If anyone on here even believes for a minute that our government hasn’t already been doing this even before there were drones you are delusional. There is always a perceived threat in the United States and there have always been assassins who are hired to safeguard our borders from possible threats. Just because they are now using drones, drones being more visible, now you’re scared or upset? I see it like this, very simple it is, if you are not breaking the law or giving police, military or government officials a reason to look at you then you have nothing to be afraid of. Honestly, if the government wanted to know how much toilet paper you go through in a week it really wouldn’t take much for them to find out.

Smed1972, are you kidding me?! For heaven's sake, the local grocery conglomerate knows your every consumer habit/purchase! Including what brand and how much of it you use(toilet paper). And Tedeaux, I'm a liberal Democrat and voted for Obama and I don't like the idea of using drone warfare against American citizens regardless of circumstances. I find it ironic that red voters are scared of executive power if used by a Democrat but sang a different tune when W was in office. BTW, surveillance drone usage is the wave of the future by corporate and college security. Get used to it.

Fortysix,

When will progressives stop wielding the past of Bush (not even any comparison) as a justification for the present tyrant? This man is an enemy of the state. He would be dictator and he seeks destruction to our free world.

Tedeaux, you have rightly stated in your post of 6:02 AM.

Just because our big "G" already knows how many times we inhale a breath in one day, doesn't give them the right to take that breath away. Certainly, one person determining the fate of another should raise concerns to all, not just your political persuasion.

Tell the survivors of the Holocaust your justification for state dominance, maybe they will understand your "get used to it" commentary.

Agreed Fred. The monitoring of activities by our government is at an all time high. Simply saying that if you aren't guilty of doing something illegal you shouldn't worry is frightening. The erosion of personal information protection and the intrusion of govt into every facet of out lives almost makes one think they are living in a Ray Bradbury novel.

Why would you think that? I voted no and for Obama. Sheez!

rmiller - you're messed up. The hate you harbor for our president is awful.
