Is it 2013 or 1984? Hello, this is Tony Perkins with the Family Research Council in Washington. The premise of George Orwell's novel "1984" was the government's use of psychological manipulation and physical control to maintain power. The plethora of scandals that comes from the Obama administration is pulling back the curtain on the administration's efforts to keep power no matter the costs. Whether it is the Attorney General being held in contempt of Congress for refusing to provide information in the gun scandal, "Fast and Furious," or the DOJ's delving into the media's phone records, or the apparent pre-election cover up of Benghazi to the latest scandal of using the IRS to target those whose political ideology is a threat to the Left. All served undermine our Constitutional Republic. This use of power is dangerous, and its chilling effect on citizens participating in the political process, which our system depends upon.
