 The Road to Tyranny
”The enemy to fear is the natural lust for power, inherent in man!”
Friday 7 June 2013

  . 
Tyranny comes in many forms; it is shameful it should come
via the
ballot box, when citizens choose to elect officials,
merely for handouts as well as a socialist agenda, thereby
building, link by link, the chains that will enslave them.

 

"Governor, if I had foreseen the use these people desired to make of their victory, there would have been no surrender at Appomattox, no, sir, not by me.  Had I seen these results of subjugation, I would have preferred to die at Appomattox with my brave men, my sword in this right hand." --- General Robert E. Lee - as told to Texas ex-Governor F. W. Stockdale.  General Lee no doubt foresaw the long-term results of the Yankee victory, and regretted to late, to having surrendered.

This writer would vary much love to be proven wrong, but regretfully, the Yankee Empire has had all the years since the surrender of our Confederate Armies, with which to build their bureaucracy.  Prayerfully, it will not require more fire and blood, in order to cut it down their size and restore our liberties, but I see the cost as being very high, very high indeed.  But be that as it may, in this article I could only but touch upon the disaster now developing, and which will soon enough erupt

“To take from one, because it is thought his own industry and that of his fathers has acquired too much, in order to spare to others, who, or whose fathers, have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association, the guarantee to everyone the free exercise of his industry and the fruits acquired by it.” --- Thomas Jefferson
.

 

“In my view, the Christian religion is the most important and one of the first things in which all children, under a free government ought to be instructed...No truth is more evident to my mind than that the Christian religion must be the basis of any government intended to secure the rights and privileges of a free people.” ... Noah Webster.  In reading the below, it is hoped that ‘WE THE PEOPLE’ will soon awaken to their gradual or perhaps no longer so gradual enslavement, which is being brought upon them, at the cost of each persons God given unalienable rights.

“The natural progress of things is for liberty to yield and government to gain ground.” --- Thomas Jefferson!  “We hold these truths to be self evident…”, which is a statement found in the  ‘Declaration of Independence.”  It also says that we are “endowed by our creator, with certain unalienable rights…”  Our creator, based upon the Holy Scriptures, is the Almighty God, however in our secular humanaistic society, there are a sizeable percentage of the people who believe there is no God.  Then there are those who follow a false religion; collectively they believe God is a manifastation of man’s own imagination. .

Therefore the principle of absolute truth is to those people, only a matter of interpretation!  The vast majority of our rulers, the socialist and liberals, as well as their cohorts, not withstanding the support they receive through the mass media, govern based upon secular humanism, which is an athesistic policy.  Even among the liberals and solicalist who, to some small degree, may believe there is a God, they have a shallow concept as to who or what God is!  Thus when a Christian Conservative refers to an absolute or self evident truth, those people do not believe such a thing even exists, but rather hold that truth is relative.

It follows that these secular humanist, which constitute the liberals and socialists, do not believe there is such a thing as “unalienable rights” which are endowed by a God, they perceive as merely the figment of our imagineation, and a crutch.  From colonial times the founding fathers understood the dangers, that the Republic form of Government, which they had created, would in due course of time face.  They feared these dangers would in time, transform the government into an overpowering central beast, which would completely dominate the lives of the people.  Benjamin Franklin certainly understood how a limited government becomes tyranical, when he expressed his deeply held concerns as to the people becoming government dependents.

Mr. Franklin once stated, “When the people find that they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic.”  We can see today how his concerns have come to complete fruitation!  In our time we  are rapidly coming to the place where a choice will become necessary, either we will stand up for our liberties, or else bow to the tyrant, and master of our lives.  The choice sounds easy, that is until the time comes to actually make such a choice!  Either we will loose that cozy government check we receive in the mail box every month, or else by direct deposit to our bank account, or we surrender our individual God given rights.

 

 

We as a society have become quite confortable in our ease, the choice will not be easy to make, and far to many who outwardly support individual rights, will step aside when things get heated up, and they will.  One need only count the ways government has intruded into our lives, and we might begin with the ongoing government collection and review of multi-millions of phone records, in addtion to emails, facebook accounts and websites.  You can bet the ranch that what you say is being monitored, regardless of where you say it, online, on a landline, a cell phone or iphone.  In addition they will increase their survalence of what and where you make your purchases!

Those that might be nieve enough to believe the assets available to the bureauracy is limited to the afore mentioned, or the spy satalites and drones, might be wise to reconsider.  Those people have the largest and most advance intelligence gathering technology, facilities and the necessary bureauracy.  They can and do process all those telephone conversations, as well as those online, and to any degree they wish!  And they are building a bio data base, which already contains the genetic profile of approximately a third of the 310 million citizens, and that list is growing.  In due course of time, they will by law, regulation or Executive Order, change those percentages to100 percent of the people.

All these things and more are done in the name of security and for the good of the people, and one can only ask, how much security can we afford?  How much of your unalienable God given rights, your liberties, are you prepared to surrender for the sake of security and government dependency?  We have already surpassed the point where more then 50 percent of the people are dependent upon federal handouts.  Such people will only stand up for one thing, a continuation of the handouts, iregardless of the suppression of individual rights.  It doesn’t take a political genious to comprehend, that the size of the federal government has grown to astronomical porportions. .

Coninsiding the an ongoing growth in government, whicyh is a heavy weight exerted upon our daily lives!  How large should the federal government be?  Thomas Jefferson puts it this way, “A wise and frugal government … shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government.” - First Inaugural Address, 4 March1801.  Asside from the military, if the Yankee Government were to be reduced to its proper size, a cut of perhaps as much as 70 percent would be necessary.

What is the likely outcome of such a colossal size of government and the ever growing intrusion into the lives of the people, they were elected to serve?  The size of government will continue to grow, as well the national debt, the cost of which will consume like a cancer, until there will either be a massive uprising of the people, a collapse into chaos or a revolution.  In the meantime a federal police force will be created, which will be more of an army then a police force.  This force will likely be called the ‘People’s Army’ or some similar term, and it will be under the Homeland Security Secretary, so as to, as they will say, ensure the safety and security of the people.

In reality this new federal police force will be the Ghestapo of the Yankee Empire, the enforcer of any and all federal injunctions, iregardless of their constitutionality.  People who oppose the liberal and socialist idiology, or speak out against the ruling class, will be rounded up and imprisoned in special camps, which will be made  ready by that time.  All this quite naturally, once again, be to ensure the safety and security of the people and the nation!  Remember, “When the people fear their government, there is tyrany, When the government fears the people, there is liberty. – Thomas Jefferson!  The final stage in the total iradication of our God given unalienable rights, is according to George Mason’s statement, to disarmy the people.

“To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them.”  “Considering the natural lust for power so inherent in man, I fear the thirst to power will prevail to oppress the people.” --- George Mason.  But to those who still do not comprehend, you might consider Samuel Adams’ statement, where is said, "If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace.  We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." -- Samuel Adam.

God save the Confederacy

Ultimately it begins with a few laws, regulations and Executive Orders, then like adding a pound at a time, the weight of government becomes so enormous, the people are forced by circumstances to rise up and throw off the shackles. The temptation to exercise ever more political power, and to spend vast sums of money is so overwhelming, the politician cannot resist; thus he continues to add to the weight of government, until it becomes unbearable.
