Good Evening Everyone! Tonight I am posting an article from Common Man. Admittedly this has been sitting here in my inbox for a bit. CM was out of town for a bit and then once he returned, I was so tied up with work I didn’t even think about it for a week! But now I share his article with all of you. His work days are pretty busy these days so he may not be able to comment much during the day, but he will he checking in when he can. So enjoy…
I have watched a lot of videos, read a number of articles and blogs that address our current political circumstances, our nation’s economical problems and the events that we are all faced with as citizens of the US. However, the video on this Web site really struck a major nerve. http://www.freemarketamerica.org
It struck a nerve because for a number of months now I have grown more and more convinced we are facing a government regime bent on destroying both individual liberty and Constitutional principles. A government that ignores the laws it was designed to protect, or rewrites those laws to enable it to do as it pleases.
That we are no longer in control of our government, but that it now controls us.
It struck a nerve because it provided specific examples of how a regime could go about destroying not only a nation, but the founding principles from which that nation was built. The video presents a scenario of how certain influential powers could go about collapsing a country without revolution and at the same time affirm a new social order; one that would virtually eliminate liberty and freedom.
It struck a nerve because it parallels my theory that government is executing a specifically designed plan to “fundamentally change” America into some kind of Socialist / Marxist / Communist State. A plan that transitions all power and rule to those who hold office, or those who financially control those in office.
I believe it is being done by design, and is being executed with specific and certain precision. I also believe it is a plan that has been in the works for many decades, although initially was not as maliciously intended as it is today. It is also bi-partisan. I believe it is a plan that has evolved as needed depending upon various events and circumstances, and it is a plan that continues to grow and strengthen. Its strength is derived from each success or milestone the plan has built into it. The more successes and milestones achieved the more robust and consuming the plan becomes.
The plan is much like a cancer, and like a cancer if left unchecked it will kill its host.
The recent Healthcare Act/Law which forces individuals and corporations to purchase a specific level of coverage, or be fined. That is an absolute violation of the Constitution and attack on individual liberty
The Stimulus Plan (both Bush and Obama) which further depletes an already exhausted money supply, and creates the need to print more money resulting in a weakened dollar.
Giving the EPA unlimited power and at the same time propagandizing the falsehood that humans are causing significantly negative changes in the environment. And the EPA is now a major catalyst for “Green Energy”, which is a supporting doctrine to alternative energy and government control
An endless effort to create multiple government entities both Federal and State.
Thousands of new laws which are designed to further the control over the population
Continued programs within the Public School System designed to indoctrinate our youth to a pre-determined mindset
Borderless boarders and an absolute defiance on the Federal Governments part to uphold those laws it was sworn to enforce. The more desperate minorities they can add to the government welfare program the more voices they have to continue the message that the government can help.
The promotion of alternate energy sources coupled with the closing of numerous oil and natural gas drilling sites and continued purchasing of foreign supplies. This too is a coordinated effort to further “Green Energy” and the governments influence of natural resources.
Industry bailouts designed to increase taxes but more importantly designed to influence and/or gain control of certain industries. If you want to further your control over natural resources such as oil, then assuming partial or total control over industries biggest user of oil is paramount.
The Patriot Act – This is an absolute and blatant act to allow the government to spy on its citizens and use terrorism as an excuse to prosecute. Additional efforts to gain access and/or regulate the internet further this endeavor.
The Executive Order – The worst and most destructive act/law initiated since this country was founded. No one man or woman should ever be allowed to invoke acts or statutes under any circumstance, otherwise liberty erodes.
Taxes – Completely out of hand and a key to the designed destruction of fair trade, individual prosperity and industry.
Endless Propaganda designed to specifically brainwash the sheeple into a particular mindset. The media is also a significant catalyst to further the plan.
The Federal Governments endless effort to intimidate State government to kowtow to a particular agenda, or suffer shortages in federal funding and/or other needed assistance.
Gun Control and an endless attack on weapon manufactures, their client base, individual citizens and the Second Amendment. They know that an armed citizen is more difficult to control or intimidate.
Eminent Domain – Another example of the government invoking laws designed to solely benefit its agenda and power. This is another absolute violation of both Constitutional and individual rights.
The selection and pandering of specific individuals by both parties on the basis of pure public appeal verses qualifications and abilities. This is more blatant at the POTUS level, but is evident at all levels of government. Obama is just the latest example of bringing the flamboyant, charming and eloquent puppet to the podium.
Continued efforts to promote equality and fairness verses competition and individuality. This is a mainstream agenda at the school level. It is also one of the most influential agendas for molding the next generation to require and expect more and more government assistance. Start educating and indoctrinating them at an early age so that when they are adults they already function as you conditioned them to function
Redistribution of wealth and the continued demonizing of the wealthy. This is an effort to eliminate the entrepreneur spirit that developed both the country and a once great industrial nation.
Racism – Probably more predominant now than it was 40 years ago, but in a way that furthers the gap between all races.
Welfare and Entitlement Programs – although initially created to provide a “hand-up” they have now evolved, by design, to be deprecating enslavement.
Party alignment – This is a critical catalyst in hoodwinking the individual. Debates about specific fundamental issues like abortion, marriage, gun ownership, racism, war on terror, drug legalization, borders and a dozen or more other heated issues only serves to redirect us from the real issue. This enables the government to continue its effort while the majority argues about mindless dribble. What we should be focused on is how licenses for marriage & guns is a direct violation of Constitutional rights, that we only need to go to war to defend against an aggressor, medical treatments are solely individual choices, all people’s have the same God given rights and what drugs we use and how we treat our bodies is also an individual choice. The government has no jurisdiction unless we chose to violate the same rights of another. And they have become experts at redirection.
I could go on for pages and pages, but the critical issue is the number of laws, programs and mandates that surface daily at an overwhelming level. Not only are they designed to reduce or eliminate individual liberties and freedom, they are designed to indoctrinate and intimidate.
Throughout world history government or powerful rulers set about defining and enforcing laws and programs to accomplish two basic principles:
Ensure adequate taxes (the current regime calls it revenue now) to support and promote their desired lifestyle
Control those under their rule in order to maintain their power and secure monies required to minimize or eliminate the threat of revolution or foreign invasion.
Interestingly enough all those regimes that adopted this evil style of government or rule eventually failed and caused or greatly contributed to the deaths of thousands.
It is an absolute that any form of government or rule founded or controlled by these two primary rules will eventually collapse.
Our government has over the past 100+ years evolved to the point of adopting these two primary objectives, and are consciously designing more laws and programs to promote them.
Those in power today DO NOT consciously believe that they are truly functioning in the best interest of the people, and for us to believe otherwise is blind ignorance. I have come to the conclusion that those who currently serve, or are looking too, are self centered, indignant and driven by greed. This is especially true at the Executive level.
If we are to change things we must first realize that the current government is only self serving, and each and every act or initiative it undertakes is designed to further its control.
We must realize that the only thing the government can do that is even slightly to our benefit is NOTHING. Any other effort is hurtful and designed to further the elimination of liberty and freedom, or at the least promotes current rules doing the same.
Despite all the laws and acts that have been invoked over the countless years, life and liberty would eventually evolve positively if the government would just stop.
From my own point of view this direction seems more feasible than working to elect different corrupt individuals to replace the current corrupt individuals. They are all cut from the same mold and either by desire or through peer influenced persuasion will evolve to be no different than their predecessors.
Now the Federal government is already too big and too strong to fight on an individual level, however local officials can be swayed. And since any and all acts or laws initiated by government officials are hurtful to individual liberty and freedom, our course of action at the local level is “NO”. They cannot be allowed to further government’s agenda. No more taxes, no more programs, no more facilities or institutions and no more laws or mandates of any kind.
My vote will be cast for those individuals that run on a platform of eliminating current taxes, laws, programs or rules, but only at the local level. At the Executive level casting a vote for one of the regimes chosen figureheads is an exercise in futility, because we are just placating a corrupt and evil entity. The simple fact that the Electoral College decides who will serve as President is evidence enough that we have no influence.
Maybe this approach will begin the effort to return our Republic and reinstate individual liberty and freedom; otherwise we will see some form of revolution followed by a great deal more suffering.
NO is the only answer.
