Totalitarian nations, dictatorships, and police states dont happen overnight. They start out as supposedly good ideas with considerable support from the citizenry. In fact, history shows that in the beginning, despots and tyrants are often viewed as heroic protectors, benevolent rulers, welcomed with fanfare and open armschampions of the people. But eventually, average citizens wake up one day amidst chaos and decay, look around, and ask in bewilderment, Wha hoppin? Of course by that time, its usually too late to do anything about it.
In a similar way, our government has begun to resemble something akin to a foreign occupation. However you choose to describe it, were witnessing an alarming departure from what was once a constitutional republic: In President Obamas own words, a fundamental change is taking place. Like many tyrannies of the past, its been a gradual process. And like many tyrannies, much of the population cant see it coming. With the Democrats in charge while the GOP establishment gives their tacit approval, the country at large seems unconcerned about the growing power of the federal government.
There are a few vocal dissidents who adamantly oppose this slowly advancing tyranny. And make no mistake, theyre regarded as enemies of the state, a danger to this new political status quo. The Democrats in charge are vigorously trying to silence these so-called extremists through intimidation and propaganda, while timid Republicans try to discourage what they see as over-the-top rhetoric threatening their reelections.
The Washington establishment has no desire to make peace with their political opponents. They seek an end to all opposition, so they can usher in a brave new world where the citizen is secondary to the state. Many have forgotten that it used to be the other way around.
One man, one vote, one time.

Welcome to FR?
From the forward:
Since March 9, 1933, the United States has been in a state of declared national emergency. In fact, there are now in effect four presidentially-proclaimed states of national emergency: In addition to the national emergency declared by President Roosevelt in 1933, there are also the national emergency proclaimed by President Truman on December 16, 1950, during the Korean conflict, and the states of national emergency declared by President Nixon on March 23, 1970, and August 15, 1971.So it may very well be that we are the enemy.
These proclamations give force to 470 provisions of Federal law. These hundreds of statutes delegate to the President extraordinary powers, ordinarily exercised by the Congress, which affect the lives of American citizens in a host of all-encompassing manners. This vast range of powers, taken together, confer enough authority to rule the country without reference to normal Constitutional processes.
Under the powers delegated by these statutes, the President may:
seize property; organize and control the means of production; seize commodities; assign military forces abroad; institute martial law; seize and control all transportation and communication; regulate the operation of private enterprise; restrict travel; and, in a plethora of particular ways, control the lives of all American citizens.
From the Article:
There are a few vocal dissidents who adamantly oppose this slowly advancing tyranny. And make no mistake, theyre regarded as enemies of the state, a danger to this new political status quo. […] The Washington establishment has no desire to make peace with their political opponents. They seek an end to all opposition, so they can usher in a brave new world where the citizen is secondary to the state. Many have forgotten that it used to be the other way around.
This is very true.
