John Whitehead is Afraid, Very Afraid

Mr. Whitehead, a constitutional attorney and religious liberties champion, has written a fierce column about 'the state of the nation' in which he laments the surveillance culture, unemployment rate, unprotected borders, apathetic young Americans, a Congress whose lifestyle mimics those of Hollywood celebrities, global wars - all the ingredients for a 'perfect storm.'

Here's a part of it: " ... can freedom in the United States flourish in an age when the physical movements, individual purchases, conversations and meetings of every citizen are under constant surveillance by private companies and government agencies?

We are metamorphosing into a police state. Governmental tentacles now invade virtually every facet of our lives, with agents of the government listening in on our telephone calls and reading our e-mails."

Admittedly, he's too much of a realist (or a prophet?) to be doing cartwheels over the election of a Scott Brown.
