George Zimmerman Could Be You

Mark J. Fitzgibbons
After George Zimmerman was acquitted by jury trial in the tragic death of Trayvon Martin, President Obama said, "Trayvon could have been me 35 years ago."

Well, George Zimmerman could be you tomorrow.

Following the trial, Eric Holder's Department of Justice immediately created a website to "troll" for tips about whether Zimmerman is a racist despite FBI findings that Zimmerman is not.

Zimmerman spoke out and helped African-Americans in his community.  He is the 'anti-racist,' but that matters little in Obama's America, where division, not truth, is what counts.

Zimmerman and even his family are getting death threats, but the Justice Department ordered that his gun be withheld from him.

What the Zimmerman matter shows boldly is the unprecedented abuse of federal government power against individual Americans.  Drones, unlawful collection of private data and other general surveillance of our society are little compared to the use of the full civil and criminal powers of the federal government against individuals for political purposes.

Congress is holding hearings about individuals targeted for IRS audits for contributing to Republicans.  A Virginia farmer was audited after fighting abuses by local governments.

Where does it stop?

Joseph Stalin's henchman Lavrenty Beria said, "Show me the person, and I'll find you the crime."

Individual Americans are now targets at the mercy of a corrupt, lawless federal government.  America has never been such a police state as it is under Barack Obama.

Today it's George Zimmerman; tomorrow it could be you.
