One Step Closer to a Socialist America

One step closer to a Socialist America

In recent months, strange occurrences have happened on a regular basis in the Congress and Senate.  Bills are being passed that give unprecedented power to the government and severely curtail the liberty of the American population.  This is an attempt to report on the most detrimental of those actions and what we can expect in the near future.   There are a series of events forming a distinct pattern. This premature decision making is pushing America further down the path to Socialism.

Now is a good time to take a look at the foundation of our constitutional republic.  So how is the republic faring these days?  In the constitution, individuals are given the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The government now regulates the automobile industry, the banking industry, the Federal Reserve, Social Security, the mortgage industry and healthcare (soon to be completed). They also have monopolies on Flood Insurance and Student Loans.  As the government has grown, the choices of the individuals have been minimized.  Immediately after the healthcare reform is completed, there is a large Cap N Trade bill coming up.  This legislation will dictate how much electricity you will be permitted to use, the type of lightbulbs to used, the choice of energy used in the home, the specific construction of new homes, how much you travel, and what type of travel (car, bus, airplane) is permissible to individuals.  The frequency of travel will also be legislated. New laws are being introduced that will mandate the choices an individual will be permitted to have by the government.  After this passes, what is left of the individual freedoms in this country?   Of equal importance is the fact most of these efforts involve a redistribution of wealth in America.

Have you been following the bill being proposed that will curtail freedom of speech? Bill 733 is waiting in the wings to be brought to the fore, when America begins shouting too loudly about losing her freedoms.  This bill will give the government the power to control the internet nationwide in the best interest of cyber security”.  The proposal is that people would have to apply for a license, pay a fee, and get approval from the government for internet access.  The “type” of permissible user will be mandated by the government. Currently there are discussions of adding language to legislate journalism as well.  Journalism meaning all newspapers and television news shows, talk shows, radio blogs, and standard blogs.  The regulatory Czar contends this is the only way to ensure quality journalism.  Imagine how the difficulty  if there were no internet, news media, etc.  How would the people know what was going on?  Mmmm, maybe that is the point! Three out of four primary news networks are controlled by the government to a large degree.   The regulatory Czar has already made alarming statements that in his opinion “people criticizing their government should be guilty of treason”. 

Not too long ago on Cspan, there was a fascinating speech about this very topic from Senator Alexander from Tennessee.  He commented that people were getting letters and veiled threats from the administration when they disagreed with policies or had negative comments of any kind.  People have had their “hands slapped” by people in the administration and threats of withholding stimulus funds for their constituents were made.  This administration, much like the former Nixon Administration have been forming an “enemies” list.  Their attacks on conservative media have included several direct comments by the President.

We are currently involved in a domestic struggle to save our constitutional republic.  There are many in high places in the government who have determined they know what is best for America, regardless of what the constitution states.  Several of them are known advocates of Socialism and Marxism.  These elitest people with the controlling notions truly believe they are smarter than the 312M+ patriots who live in the USA.  Their idea is to “protect” us by telling us what we can and cannot do. 

The majority of current government representatives agree with the administration and  believe in redistributed wealth.  One of the easiest ways to get redistributed wealth to work is via heavy taxation.  The government retains control of most of the public’s money and distributes funds to whom they deem to be worthy.  This whole effect is called socialism.  The movements toward Socialism  have been creeping up on Americans for decades.  Look at the number of taxes we currently have (over 20).  There will now be 9 more taxes with the health “plan” passed by the Senate in the form of direct and excise taxes.  Examine the billions given in grants each year or in government allocations.  Re-distribution of wealth has been at play for a while now in America.

It is time to stand up and demand these people vote in line with the Constitution.  They do not have the rights to govern our liberties and determine how much liberty an individual has in the United States of America.  Let your voices be heard.  More to follow…..

The liberties of our country, the freedom of our civil Constitution, are worth defending at all hazards; and it is our duty to defend them against all attacks. We have received them as a fair inheritance from our worthy ancestors: they purchased them for us with toil and danger and expense of treasure and blood, and transmitted them to us with care and diligence. It will bring an everlasting mark of infamy on the present generation, enlightened as it is, if we should suffer them to be wrested from us by violence without a struggle, or to be cheated out of them by the artifices of false and designing men.     Samuel Adams
