|Will this be our fate in the end?
It's a doubled-edged sword, this new world Americans find themselves in, one where our eventual dictator becomes ever emboldened and our citizens clutch their hands over their ears more tightly with each passing day. So accustomed to the American way of life have we become that we no longer recognize the clear and present danger to our Republic. Or perhaps we do but can't process the approaching horror.
Why is it that we can read the news from, say, Venezuela and see the signs of tyranny developing, but we are blind to the machinations of our own government? Do we really believe, after a mere 237 years, that it can't happen here? Have we become so complacent that our Founders' words have lost all meaning?
We have been slowly conditioned to accept the barely perceptible erosion's of our freedoms, so much so that many of us have actually defended them, sort of like an epidemic of the Stockholm Syndrome. We have put so much blind trust in our "elected leaders" that we can't quite accept that they would betray us, despite the steady march to tyranny we see -- albeit in such incremental steps -- everyday, and either can't or don't take the time out of our busy days to recognize that it is happening, and quite blatantly.
Barack Hussein Obama told us point blank in 2008 that he was going to radically transform the United States of America. Did you all doubt him? Because he has done exactly that, though perhaps not as the 71% of regretful voters had envisioned. But...he did tell us, and we didn't listen closely enough.
The Black Panther voter intimidation case in Philadelphia being thrown out by Attorney General Eric Holder in 2009 should have been a clue, but it meant nothing to the electorate, save for a few who were paying attention. Then there was Fast and Furious, the gun running scam to Mexican drug cartels, which also got swept under the rug. These were test runs to see how far the Obama Regime could get, and the results were better than expected...for Obama and his cronies.
So, now they ratchet up the ludicrous, buying up billions of rounds of ammunition, hollow point bullets, mind you, which are a waste of money if used as they contend; for "target practice". Our media has no interest, and neither should you, dear peon, move along. Armored vehicles for local municipalities are also nothing for you to be concerned with. You want to feel safe in your little burg, no? Well, now Podunk, USA has them.
Military exercises in rural areas of the U.S. have also become commonplace, and the American people quickly adapt to their presence, feeling secure that their military is prepared for them danged terrorists! But the other angle that is obvious only to the informed is that them danged terrorists are we, the people, and our military is preparing to fight us...here...in America.
Our so-called president is bankrupting our country at a break-neck pace, and he is ruling more and more by fiat, unperturbed by the "free" press or the opposition party, who have all -- save for a few brave souls -- collectively ceded their Constitutional authority over to the Executive Branch.
And now we learn that the FCC will be invading and monitoring newsrooms across the nation in an attempt to either cow an already compliant media or to seal the deal on its collective collusion with the Regime. In light of my final point, who will report on this encroachment? Certainly not a media already in bed with the Regime and who will experience a weird form of date rape as a reward.
So my question to you, America, is when will you have seen enough to convince you that we are sliding down to the bottom of the proverbial slippery slope? When will the thud of realization clap your multitudinous noggins, bringing the revelation that you have been duped?
I pray it is long before you are greeted by the rest of us as you enter FEMA Camp #309.
