A nation founded on the principle of individual freedom and liberty has become one of control of everything by government, i. e. fascism. Politicians, bureaucrats, and judges have taken liberty out of the hands of the citizen and relegated us to subservience to their will. Business and personal decisions are dictated by an ever-growing and ever-increasing oppressive oversight by those who deem themselves smarter and more qualified to make any decision, however minor or private the decision may be. Control of every aspect of life appears to be the goal of our government. How did we go from individual liberty to a dictatorial oligarchy operating as fascists? Citizens got busy trying to survive day to day, special interest groups began demanding that government enforce their agenda on the rest of us, and power hungry people saw a chance to dissolve our nation while enriching and empowering themselves. As time has gone on this quest for control has become wider spread and addictive to a growing faction of politicians, bureaucrats, and judges. Part of the problem is apathy of those not yet affected at the time. Eventually the effect catches up with everyone not in the ruling cabal and total tyranny is the result. We today live under what can be called a soft tyranny that is rapidly becoming less soft and will soon be overt Nazi style tyranny.
Christianity is under assault by every part of government today. Values and beliefs of Christians are seen as a threat to dictatorship and are being subverted or suppressed by politicians, bureaucrats, and judges in both political parties. Moslems, who have a tendency to kill those of different religious beliefs because of those differences, are praised by our “leaders”, although they are a threat to liberty. On the other hand, Christians, who do not kill those with opposing beliefs and allow different beliefs by others, are targeted by a government originally founded on Biblical precepts.
Our nation has become one of absolute control by the ruling faction that no longer makes any pretence of being “servants of the people” as established by the founders. Some even openly proclaim that American citizens are too stupid to make their own decisions. The idea of citizen legislators has been replaced by power hungry despots who see ruling as their right and see We the People as subjects, as did King George III. They feel entitled to a lifetime as rulers and care not a bit for the plans of our founding fathers, whose idea was to serve the interests of the citizens then become private citizens again and live under the laws they passed. Today those elected often remain in office until they die, not caring about anything but their own power. They set themselves up in royal fashion and demand austerity of us “peasants”. There are exceptions but those are rare today. The party bosses control who is elected, which consists of people who pledge loyalty to the party. Money and power rather than honor drives politics these days. Estimated cost in 2015 for American businesses to comply with federal edicts is $1.9 trillion; costs that will be paid by citizens. that is a lot of money for them to pull out of our pockets to finance their arrogance and power hunger!!!!!
Both political parties have joined forces to shut individuals or upstart grassroots parties out of the electoral process by making it almost impossible to challenge them with stringent requirements to get on ballots in each state. The political establishment will violate parliamentary procedures and their own party rules to ensure a monopoly and stop outsiders from participating in the electoral process, thereby ensuring their continued stranglehold over the power structure. The Oklahoma state and national Republican conventions of 2012 highlight this problem. We the People can only vote for presidential candidates chosen by the parties, candidates owned and controlled by the party bosses, not the Constitution and We the People.
It is sad that a nation founded on the God-given rights of the individual has been turned into just another dictatorship controlled by a small group of power hungry despots who rule rather than govern but that is where we are today. “Common sense gun control” is the favorite ploy of politicians to violate the 2nd Amendment despite the “shall not be infringed” clause that is very clear but ignored by political despots in control of government. Their “common sense ” measures include only police and military having guns. How has that worked in Germany, the Soviet Block, Red China, or any number of other dictatorship around the world in the 20th Century????? To answer, nearly 300 million people were disarmed then slaughtered by their own governments. Have you seen the movie ” Schindler’s List”?
Government now controls the health care system, dictating what coverage is acceptable, and also how much can be charged for services. Bureaucrats decide who has to pay and who gets “subsidies” (meaning someone else pays their way). Bureaucrats appointed by anti-Constitution politicians decide what provisions of the Constitution are ignored and which are twisted to mean what they want them to mean. Our nation is in a moral and financial free fall that will destroy it. We are being “Balkanized” by race, economic standing, gender, sexual tastes, and more with the purpose of subjugating all of us. Too many people expect the wolf that is our government to devour others but fail to realize that they are also on the menu.
Obama just pronounced that indoctrination centers we comically call colleges will now be “free” for 2 years, oh joy!!!! Some will pay for their own demise while also paying for the demise of others. The “primrose path” is rapidly turning into a disaster fraught with traps that will also ensnare those demanding that the traps be set for the rest of us. If We as a nation are to survive, We the People MUST stop allowing this balkanization but that means some will have to pull their own weight for a change and some will have to stop whining for government to favor them over others
I submit this in the name of the Most Holy Trinity, in faith, with the responsibility given to me by Almighty God to honor his work and not it die from neglect.
