Tyranny's Final Exam

The Baby Steps Are Done
I have been saying for years that the incremental movements of the Left in America were nothing more than baby steps to totalitarianism. It now appears that I was right all along.

The ongoing government shutdown is just what Barack Obama and the political hacks in Washington have wanted from the beginning. What better way to gauge the mood of we ordinary Americans regarding total control over our lives? What better way to assess how much we are willing to endure at the hands of our alleged servants?

Please be aware; I am not talking about the people who today are following the instructions of police so as not to be arrested, even though they know what is happening is wrong. I'm talking about the people who -- not knowing any better but are complete political partisans -- applaud this president's administration and blame the wrong guys for the shutdown, all at their own eventual peril.

The current political atmosphere in Washington bears no resemblance to what our Founders envisioned, from the trampling of the Constitution to the blatant disregard for the electorate. The fact that this shutdown boils down to a battle over the Affordable Care Act (ACA) is a testament to what I am saying.

In 2009, when the battle over the ACA was raging, people all across America made their voices heard. The objects of their wrath were not only defiant, but belligerent. The Democrats used every trick in the book to coerce, cajole and conjure votes for Obamacare, and not one single Republican -- in either chamber of Congress -- voted for it. And then, incredibly, no one even read the damned thing, but the Democrats forced it down our throats anyway.

Since 1913, when Woodrow Wilson signed the Federal Reserve Act into law, America has been on a downward spiral; some would say a derailment. Sure, there were brief periods of hope, such as the Reagan years, but the trend has been downward overall. Everything that Marx's Communist Manifesto spelled out is coming to fruition. Every word of Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals has been practiced. And now, the King selected by this ideology is poised to put the final nail in America's coffin.

This government shutdown is tyranny's final exam, the ultimate test of the steps taken by radicals who never thought Americans would tolerate such nonsense as the federal government shutting down open spaces and the ocean, of all things. Yet, instead of the people telling government officials that they have divine rights to the ocean, they instead opt for redress of government. Does anyone see how convoluted that reasoning is?

When this latest bout of political pugilism is done, the memories of it will be filed away in the minds of the Socialists who now run America. The final question of this final exam will most likely have something to do with martial law, and how far can the government take it. Unless we as a people wake up before it's too late, all that ammunition and hardware the government has been squirreling away will be trained on us.

Then what?
