The cry should go up far and near for underdog

On May 5, President Barack Obama urged young Americans to reject anyone who "warns that tyranny is lurking around the corner" even as his own administration is buried under a series of scandals that confirm those very warnings.

Every American who values their individual liberty should be following the Obama administration's alarming abuse of power against its own citizens. The more you learn about the covert actions of Obama's various agencies — for which he ultimately bears responsibility — the more Richard Nixon looks like a rank amateur by comparison.

Thankfully, we have the "underdog" media that dare to challenge the mainstream agenda, such as Fox News' Special Report, which airs daily at 5 p.m. I urge you to check it out and make up your own mind. You might find its approach far more consistent with your own values than the liberal brainwashing that dominates most media and entertainment programs.
