Extremely accurate observance. 5 stars for accuracy, a thumbs down for what it has done to this once land of the free and home of the brave. I will willingly comply to compelled compliance, licensing, victimless crime canons, theft of my labors and tangible property, and the giving and taking of my inalienable rights by my omnipotent carnal god is a socialist's mantra. A young man I am familiar with recently beat a traffic ticket by making the prosecutor and court comply with the written 'Rules of Criminal Procedure'. Afterwards, the prosecutor took the young man aside and told him that whomever helped him with his paperwork was leading him down a path of trouble - he just needed to do whatever the prosecutor and court told him to do and go along with what ever the cop accused him of, even if it wasn't true. WOW we're there.

Anyone out there who can look at our country today and claim we are not at the very least on the path to socialism, if not already there, is blind, deaf, and dumb.....or a member of the press.. The propaganda minister would have been proud.

Ah yes, sacrificing your freedom for "The greater good".

"National Socialism is a religion. All we lack is a religious genius capable of uprooting outmoded religious practices and putting new ones in their place. We lack traditions and ritual. One day soon National Socialism will be the religion of all Germans. My Party is my church, and I believe I serve the Lord best if I do his will, and liberate my oppressed people from the fetters of slavery. That is my gospel. (Diary entry for October 16, 1928)

Every civilization has collapsed. The Greeks, the Romans, et al. It is the natural evolution of all civilizations to eventually fail. To think we're smater, or better, or that the rules of evolution just don't apply to us is just smug naivete. So, quit whining, put on your big boy pants. Its our turn.


You just don't get it do you Buddy. We are showing you why civilizations fail. This is the purpose of studying history in school. To learn the reasons why failures have happened and not go down those roads. Most, like you, will just sit back and let failure happen.

Beware of politicians preaching about 'public service' for they simply mean to indenture us to government as a sacrifice for the 'common good.'

    The evil to intertwine religion and government, the twisting of indoctrinated and indentured, of faithful servitude to a god or president, or shepherd of a fearful flock.

    A comment without intelligence - such was the teaching of Edward Bernays. There maxim: It is the end result that matters regardless how you get there.

    Socialism is a ideology that means to ensure that the individual will become completely submissive and servile to the collective.

    Socialism, domesticating the independent with circus and bread ! The little " g and q " gods from the old world. This nation was founded by the bravest, whoever dared, tell those kings and queens of old to kiss our Freedom and Liberty loving grits, at the point of a gun ! The Spirit of Truth, a Gift from God in declaring FREEDOM FROM OPPRESSION !! Five stars up and a thumbs down for the ignorance socialism instills !

    Sounds like a religion to me -- requiring zealots to prop it up. Great comments above!
