It certainly looks to be so!
Also: The government no longer defends individual liberty. Instead it defends only itself and its growing police/military industrial complex. Any government bent upon sustaining its collective self must eventually come to see individuals, freedom, and liberty as threats to its very sustainability and power. A prime example of this can be seen in leftist/fascist Chris Christie's recent open declaration that Rand Paul is a threat to our national security, whereas Obama is working hard to sustain national security (by upholding and continually expanding the liberty gutting policies of his predecessor Bush). Arguably Rand Paul stands for individual liberty to a far greater extent than any other current member of Congress. That is why he must be put in his place, neutralized, and effectively defined as a terrorist threat.
