There is a reason our government was established as it was. Our founders knew that people in power could very easily be corrupted by that power. So, in an effort to prevent that from happening, they created three distinct branches of government (Executive, Legislative, and Judicial). Each branch held its own powers and served as a check to the others. Of course, as time has gone on some rather ideological people grabbed more power for themselves or gave up power to other agencies, but for the most part the system has held firm.
The recent power grabbing by Glorious Leader and his cronies is frightening. Instead of nominating various Secretaries to run agencies- rather, in addition to nominating- who would then require Senate confirmation and would answer to congress, Obama has taken to appointing Czars that report only to him, but hold as much sway over agencies as the Secretary presumed to head the department. Why appoint a Border Czar if you have a Department of Homeland Security?
Dissent is out there. People are screaming, but no one is listening. Now, the watch dogs who are set up as independent overseers of the money trail are disappearing at an alarming rate. If the Inspector General for a particular area cries wolf, pointing out some discrepancy or abuse of public funds, they find themselves on the short end of a pink slip. While America is still a free country, and we can still speak our minds and hearts, I would like to ask a very simple question:
How long before our voices are silenced? You say it cannot happen in this country, but we are lazy, fat and spoiled. We have lost all will to stand and fight for our freedoms, saying rather that It’s no big deal, it doesn’t affect me. Florida recently enacted a law that says police can now stop and fine you if they see (or think) that you are not wearing a seatbelt. Is it good to wear one? Yes. Will it save lives? Probably. But where do we draw the line at intrusion and control?
Make your voice heard. Call congress. Attend rallies. Blog. Meet with your friends and air out your concerns. It is the only way to try and recapture our Republic.
The revolution is at hand. Will you be a leader or a follower.
