We are heading for the loss of freedom as we know it!

“Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”  George Santayana.
    When Adolph Hitler assumed power in Germany, or Vladimir Lennin and Leon Trotsky in Russia, Mussolini in Italy, Mao in China, Castro’s Cuba, Ho Chi Minh, the list is endless in the past century.   There are three fundamental actions they all have in common. 
    First they organize their followers into a tightly knit force of supporters loyal only to them. i.e. Gestapo, or Bolsheviks.  Or does Acorn come to mind?
    Having achieved the first phase they proceed with overwhelming proposals their opponents have insufficient time to comprehend and are remolded over the country.  Nationalization of industries, control over financial markets.  GM, Chrysler, Bank of America, Meryl Lynch? ‘Cap in Trade’, Universal Healthcare’?
    While the opponents are preoccupied dealing with those issues, they consolidate with ‘SS’ or ‘Secret Police’ or AmeriCorps and appoint ‘Special Advisors’ to circumvent the authority of the Dumas or Reichstag or Congress. 
    Their images are widely posted and continually in the face of the people. The opposition is vilified as obstructionist, or just a ‘mob’ of the uninformed, or ‘hate’ mongers.
    They proclaim that the opposition is fundamentally flawed and move to nationalize the media, like ‘Talk radio’, or the ‘Fox’ network. 
    If you can see this repeat of history occurring in this country, you see more than most.  Please read the email about the bill that would require you to declare how many guns you have on your next income tax return. 
    All the furor about ‘health care’ is a diversion from the ‘back door’ agenda of this administration.  I saw a black Congresswoman on ABC this Sunday that actually said that the opposition to Obama was because we didn’t like a black President.  It’s racist morons like these who will be either the exulted of the administration or the most diallusioned.
Finally I’ll leave you with a quote from Pastor Martin Miemoller in 1945 after he was released from the concentration camp in Dachau, Germany.
First they came for the Communists, and I didn’t speak up, because I wasn’t a Communist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I didn’t speak up, because I wasn’t a Jew.
Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn’t speak up, because I was a Protestant.
Then they came for me, and by they there was no one left to speak for me.
Be vigilant in defence of your liberty and freedom. As Ronald Regan said: Government is not the answer, Government is the problem.
