Jon Voight goes all wingnutty at the Moonie Times, where he asks: "Is President Obama creating a civil war in our own country?" Voight continues:
We are witnessing a slow, steady takeover of our true freedoms. We are becoming a socialist nation, and whoever can't see this is probably hoping it isn't true. If we permit Mr. Obama to take over all our industries, if we permit him to raise our taxes to support unconstitutional causes, then we will be in default. This great America will become a paralyzed nation.
H/t: Logan Murphy at Crooks and Liars, who points out that "The only people trying to start a civil war are the extreme, right wing fringe elements of our society," and asks:
How many Obama supporters have been showing up to town hall meetings with loaded weapons, shouting uncontrollably? How many Obama supporters are wanting to secede from the United States?
As for giving that "socialist" claptrap all the seriousness it deserves, check out the Facebook group "1 Million Strong Against our SOCIALIST Fire Departments" (h/t: Maryscott O'Connor at My Left Wing):
Most Americans never use the socialized services of the fire department. The Obama administration has been very clear about keeping the status quo when it comes to taxpayer-funded fire departments.
It is time to open the fire department up to private industry. We have the best fire departments in the world in the US, but that doesn't mean that anyone (even non-US citizens) should be able to dial up and have fires put out, etc. There are private companies (Halliburtion, Etc.) who could step in tomorrow and take over every fire department in America and charge the consumer directly.
This is AMERICA. NO FREE FIRE SAFETY.
