Imagine if America was a dictatorship.

Posted on 11/29/2012 7:21:26 AM PST by Lazamataz

Why are you guys so anti-dictatorship?

Imagine if America was a dictatorship.

You could get things done by bypassing various Houses of Congress at your will.
You could help your rich friends by bailing them out when they gamble and lose.
You could impose substandard health care on the masses, while you and your cronies continued to receive the best.
The media would claim to free but would actually be controlled by, and be the mouthpiece for only one political party.
You could wire-tap phones without warrants.
You could monitor internet usage at-will.
You could declare your own citizens 'foreign combatants', and torture foreign prisoners.
You could have rigged elections and not one media entity would object.
You could lie about why you continued a war.
You could ignore and lie about, then sweep under the rug any embarassing international incidents.
You could use the media to scare the people into supporting policies that are against their interests.
If your 'Constitution' forbade certain actions, you could use the UN to implement them anyways.

You could get away with blaming W for everything that has happened in the last 500 years and into the future.

Thank goodness we are rid of George Bush or some of this agenda might have actually happened!

Our Lord and Saviour Barack Obama! (chorus in the background)

No imagination necessary. It all started with the Impeached Rapist's regime "stroke of a pen, law of the land" approach and has snowballed from there. Now Emperor 0bama need only issue an edict and the GOP dances to his tune.

Imagine?..........It already is.

Obama is following the Hugo Chavez model. Get the majority of the country dependent on entitlements and government support programs. Redistribute wealth, nationalize key industries.

That’s the type of dictatorship being established here.

When I get done with my chores for the day, I’m going to relax by loading some magazines. Don’t know whether to start with light stuff or heavy.

Indeed. You could do a lot of things and not one media entity would object. One of the bennies in operating a dictatorship is having a willing and complicit state run media at your disposal.

The foundation was laid when the media became a propganda organ for communism. None of what you wrote is possible without the media as willing accomplices.

As long as they get their freebies, they could not care less. And to add insult to injury, when the time comes for their masters to get rid of them, they will not have the intelligence to realize that it was their actions that led to their downfall. Their last conscious thought wik be,”This is all Bush’s fault.”

Yep... thin cotton "inspection" gloves work great to keep the metallic smell off your fingers - and your fingerprints off the cases.

It's good to be king.

In the land of the blind, the one eyed fat man is king.

Now now, lets look on the bright side...

Illegal immigrants will no longer flock here for a chance at a better life! Matter of fact, immigration of any kind will grind to a halt.
