During the 2008 election, Senator Barack Obama said the War on Terror was all wrong, we were just making a lot of enemies and needed to talk to people over there more. We needed to stop making terrorism our biggest concern.

His plan has worked; Americans are no longer primarily concerned about terrorism. The problem? Americans are now instead worried about President Obama infringing on their civil liberties. While we have created a Utopia for social authoritarian progressives, both liberals and conservatives are horrified by spying, lying, use of the IRS to penalize political opposition groups - even journalists are afraid to use email and most of them voted for him.

Now Pew Research reports More express concern over civil liberties (47%) than protection from terrorism (35%) for the first time in Pew Research Center polling.
