How many liberties and freedoms were threatened to near extinction by the 111th Congress?

It would be hard to say they actually did away with any freedoms but the 111th Congress certainly encroached on our freedoms in ways that had never been done before.1. They passed Obama care which basically says you are no longer free to choose how you insure your health or if you choose not to insure your health, and if implemented it will end in you no longer being in control of many other health care decisions. The Death Panels? well they said at first it was not in the bill then they struck the Death Panel provision from from the bill, and now I hear that some one is trying to change a rule associated with Obama Care to reinstate the Death Panels.2. They passed a new food safety act that basically will prevent Farmers and small growers from selling ready to eat food at farmers markets, and put onerous new regulations on them requiring loads of paperwork. this will kill lots of small farms and the jobs that go with them and reduce the availability of fresh produce.3. They approved a seriously flawed Arms treaty with Russia that will put us at a disadvantage should we ever have a war with them. This could threaten all our freedoms should Russia go to war with us, although right now we would most certainly win if they did.4. But the Congress was working on the superiority of our Military as well. They eliminated the status quo, don'-t ask don'-t tell policy which will allow gay people in the military to advertise that they are gay. Whether you agree with the move or not it will certainly make traditional family oriented people think twice about encouraging their children to sign up for Military service which IMHO will result eventually in weakening our military.5. But probably the worst thing this Congress did was to spend money like it was going out of style and Ben Bernanke the Fed chairman is assuring that our money is going out of style by increasing the volume of US $ in circulation more than doubling it. this certainly effects the average person a great deal causing inflation to eat away at their savings and earning power.here are a few other encroachments on our constitutional liberty the Obama administration and Nancy Pelosi led Congress did.6. They seized control of General Motors and Chrysler auto manufacturers, arbitrarily casting aside the rightful expectations of their bondholders and other creditors.7. They have imposed absurd and invasive demands on air travelers.8. They are considering a United Nations treaty that would render the Second Amendment null and void.9. They have refused to enforce our southern border against drug smugglers and have sued Arizona for enacting an immigration law that mirrors the Federal law.10. They have enacted new rules through the FCC to assert control over the Internet, which is an assault on our first amendment rights.11. They used the financial crisis as an excuse to bail out banks, insurance companies and other fat cats giving them literally Billions of dollars at a time that the Stock market had crashed to aprox. 1/3 of its peak value. These fat cats now claim it was a good investment because most of the money has been paid back. Well duuuhhh. You would have to by financially illiterate not to double your money in that situation. But did any one on main street get that opportunity? NO WAY JOSE !!!! The average Joe has yet to see any stimulus money even in the form of a loan. The banks are holding on to it like robber barrons.I have to admit, being a basically honest person, that 6 - 10 I did not think up myself, they came from a Tea Party sight.

They threatened the freedom to avoid purchasing insurance and just relying on the emergency room for health care - so the rest of us can pay for them. Thank goodness the republicans are going to put a stop to that effort.
