Every time someone posts about "The Great Takeover" conspiracy it's an exaggeration. An extremely annoying one too.
The USA has already been taken over, we're already under despotic rule.
Stormtroopers marching down mainstreet burning patriots alive is an all around ridiculous conspiracy story, illogical at best. Especially when we've slowly almost succumbed to that level already.
The leftists cried out that there was going to be a rightwing takeover in the eighties, the conservatives cried the same conspiracy story under Clinton, then the leftists again under Bush, now we're back to the conservatives crying wolf again.
It's old and it's tired. The only reason the government is so big and bloated and despotic is because we the people have let them become so.
Incidentally, I know no police officers who do actually take orders from anyone except their Chief and their respective state statutes. If "The Great Takeover" conspiracy materialized there is no police officer I know of that would take any orders from any federal official. The rightwing conspiracy theorists never seem to realize that the reason that the police in socialist countries turn into SS stormtroopers is because the police in all the socialist countries (ie Europe) are federal government police already.......not quite the same set-up as the local law enforcement in the US.

Then who is to blame for what we read and see first hand every day? Pets being killed on the spot for no reason? Doors being blown open and innocent people being killed because the police cant even get the god**m address right? Unlawful detention? Planting false evidence? And this is happening more frequently by the day. I have seen some of this firsthand so if you feel the police are being unfairly treated you have only yourselves to blame.

Can't argue with that.

What difference does it make whether the thug that violates your rights is a Fed or local?
Using brutality in place of intelligent analysis has become SOP for all of the goons now.
