Unfiltered Thoughts On Paul Broun

Georgia Congressman Paul Broun (R - 10th district) has made headlines again, this time calling President-elect Barack Obama a "marxist" and "warning that he might be planning to form a Gestapo-like security force so he can rule as a dictator." [Source:, "Georgia Congressman Calls Obama Marxist, Warns Of Dictatorship", November 10, 2008]

While we could debate all day whether Obama is or is not a Marxist (and for the record, I don't think Obama comes anything close to being a Marxist, Communist, socialist or any other "-ist" you can think of), the one thing that isn't up for discussion is the ability of Barack Obama to set up a Gestapo-like security force so he can rule this nation as a dictator.

There are so many constitutional safeguards in place that would prevent that from ever happening.

I'm not even going to go into great detail on what those constitutional safeguards because quite frankly, any person who took political science in high school and/or college probably knows what those safeguards are.

What I will do instead is make an urgent plea for the Republicans to get organized and get this nutcase out of office. Not only is he embarrassing himself, he's also embarrassing the State of Georgia and he's embarrassing the Republican Party.
