SWAT at BP Oil Rig: What's Going on Inside Our Government?

I spotted this video on my friends social networking site and I was as equally dismayed as was radio talk show host Mark Levin that the Department of Interior has a SWAT capability and the President sent them to "inspect" the oil platforms in the Gulf of Mexico.

I have to say what the heck is going on inside our government?

Comment: Since enacting of the 17th Amendment, and other questionable legislation that followed, there has been an assault waged against our Constitution and civil liberties by our federal and national government fostered by our elected officials, which has been moving us toward becoming a full fledged police state.

Because we have lost those checks and balances between the three branches of the federal government, the states and the people, we have very few ways to monitor the various activities that may be of dire consequence to our freedom.

When you consider the fact that the Department of Interior has SWAT capability it must be realized that it wasn't created by the present administration but in the last. Moreover, it means that while there are supposedly two main parties in this country there is really one agenda.

I realize that repealing the 17th Amendment won't fix every problem we face in the wake of the steady erosion of civil liberties, but it will put the brakes on this madness called a police state, which we are clearly headed toward (might very well be amidst).

The repeal of the 17th Amendment is not some esoteric or quixotic quest. It is first and foremost an important step to regaining the essential checks and balances and the civil liberties once contained within the US Constitution. If this video/audio doesn't at least make you consider that, then we are lost. We are lost as a country.
