Those of us who believe in constitutional government, the Bill of Rights, personal liberty, and State autonomy are beginning to taste what German theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer and pastor Martin Niemoller experienced back in 1930's Germany. These two great lovers of God and freedom were ostracized and eventually persecuted by both Germany's political and social societies and by "German Christians." History does have a way of repeating itself, doesn't it?
Anyone who does not recognize that America is rapidly being transformed into a fascist state is as dumb as Balaam's ass. No, dumber! At least the ass had the sense to stop when it realized it was heading smack into God's wrath.
For all intents and purposes, the US Constitution is dead; the Bill of Rights is dead; the vision of the Founding Fathers is dead; and federalism and republicanism are also dead. What we have left is a blend of socialism, welfarism, fascism, statism, and warfarism, with fascism becoming the dominant "ism" of the bunch.
If you want to know where America is quickly heading, go watch the movie "The Hunger Games," currently playing in theaters everywhere. Or read Orwell's "1984," or Huxley's "Brave New World." Or better yet, take your eyes off ESPN just long enough to take a good look outside. America, as "the land of the free," is disappearing. It is already unrecognizable from the country I grew up in, not to mention the country that our Founding Fathers fought and died to create. What happened in fascist Germany is happening right now in America. And one of the telltale marks of this emerging fascist society is the way people who believe in constitutional government, liberty, and individualism are being treated by the mainstream media, mainstream religion, and mainstream politics.
