Dreams of a Totalitarian Regime in America??

Actually, let me rephrase that to "Nightmares of a Totalitarian Regime in America!" You don't even have to take my word for it. Look all around you! Read the links I have provided below! Read Levin's "Ameritopia - The Unmaking of America" for a scholarly take on it!

There is so much I could write about today that it boggles my mind. So much of what I am hearing about lately is all connected - whether it's on T.V. (e.g. Watching the China and Human Rights Abuses hearing on C-Span), what I am reading on the blogs, what I am reading on Face book [from friends who have the same concerns about our current gangster government] [P.S. If you don't have a Face Book account, see Gulag, what I am receiving in emails {see post below), and what I am currently reading in Mark Levin's new book, Ameritopia - The Unmaking of America.

In an eerie way, the linked examples above are all connected. It is as though we are witnessing steps towards the creation of a totalitarian regime right here in America! But how can I write about so many examples all at once? It would be a difficult task and would turn out to be a very long blog post. Please take the time to visit each of the links and READ THEM! See if YOU don't see a pattern developing!

When the media of mass deception keeps the ObaMARXIST regime in its pocket and doesn't report the truth about what is really going on, people must rely on the Internet and blogs like this one:

I have just completed reading chapter four in Ameritopia. It is about Thomas Hobbes's Leviathan and the all powerful state.

Levin writes:

"Hobbes argued that as men live in a constant state of fear, anxiety, and conflict, they could not be trusted to govern themselves. As such, a "Sovereign" must be given absolute power over men ("Subjects") to protect them against themselves and outside invaders (a Sovereign can either be a single person such as a Monarch, or an assembly of men). The Sovereign was an all-powerful Leviathan--a totalitarian state with a vast bureaucracy controlling the lives of its Subjects.

This is what America is drifting towards - a "sovereign" who thinks he knows better than anyone else what is good for the "subjects." But that IS NOT what America is supposed to be! Our Declaration of Independence took us AWAY from a monarchy and guarantees our liberties. Our U.S. Constitution was written to keep sinful men from deviating away from our Constitutional Republic. Ben Franklin's words never rang  more true than they do today when he was asked, "what kind of government have you given us?": 

A Republic - if you can keep it.
Ronald Reagan warned:

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.
Ronald Reagan

When you read Hobbes's "rights of sovereigns by institution are nearly absolute," in Levin's book, you find out what kind of tyranny ultimately happens under someone labeled as a "mortal god."

Levin writes:

Hobbes creates a false choice between polar opposites. Either live in anarchy or live under despotism. He assumes most will choose despotism. Furthermore, once he surrenders his rights and liberties to the Sovereign, the individual has no way out unless his life is threatened. Is the Sovereign, who threaten the individual's life, going to be amenable to his disobedience or departure? Individuals are no drones. Hobbes acknowledges the obvious--that people reason, think, and learn. But in Leviathan he forbids even mild dissent. If tormented and abused by the all-powerful Sovereign, but without effective civil recourse, is it not possible --if not probable--that some portion of the population, dissatisfied and disaffected with their circumstances, will become radicalized, resist the Sovereign's rule, and even resort to violence in hopes of overthrowing him? If so, the peace and stability Hobbes promised would give way to the discord and conflicts he feared. In Leviathan, the Sovereign would be obliged to unleash all force necessary to protect the Commonwealth. Compromise or accommodation would seem out of the question, for the diminution of the Sovereign's absolute power would, in Hobbes's formulation, diminish the tranquility and survivability of the Commonwealth. As in the Republic and Utopia, absolute power over the individual requires a far-reaching police state.

But that's not all, folks! The next chapter in Levin's book deals with Karl Marx's Communist Manifesto and the class struggle. (Sound a bit familiar with Obama's attacks against the rich and utilization of race and class warfare for the upcoming election???)

I will post about that on another day. For now, I want to share some GOOD news regarding what is currently being done to fight against Obummer's regime and attempts for re-election (God forbid!).

Here is a copy of an email that I recently received from Matt Staver of Liberty Counsel. After reading it, please consider signing the petition at the link provided!

Mathew Staver, Chairman
Liberty Counsel Action

Former Attorney General Edwin Meese, a leading member of President Ronald Reagan’s Cabinet, recently said the Obama administration is “…as close to a monarchy as there’s been since the days of George III.” The President has once again grossly overstepped the constitutional authority of his office with his “contraceptive and abortifacient mandate,” and Americans have had enough.

This latest usurpation is just the tip of Obama’s iceberg of unconstitutional mandates that are emerging during the implementation of ObamaCare. The ObamaCare “mandates” threaten the liberties of ALL Americans and must be stopped! Please read my very important update below – Mat


Our forefathers fought and died to overcome tyranny.

Our Constitution was designed to prevent the abuse of power by any one person or branch of government. It defines and limits the powers of the federal government and binds its officers with the restraints of checks and balances.

For the past three years, America has suffered under the leadership of one of the most dangerous administrations in American history. This autocratic President has trampled the Constitution, seized self-appointed power, and imposed “mandates” that differ little from dictatorial commands.

++Putting Obama’s unconstitutional “ObamaCare mandates” into perspective…

In his ObamaCare “contraception mandate,” Barack Obama is forcing insurance companies and self-insured religious organizations to provide contraceptives and abortifacients to Americans who want to pay for neither.

In the unconstitutional “individual mandate” at the core of ObamaCare, you are required to buy health insurance or pay a penalty.

The “contraception and abortifacient mandate” requires religious organizations, either through their insurance premiums directly if self-insured, to pay for chemical abortions.

In short, the “contraception and abortifacient mandate” blatantly violates the First Amendment’s guarantee of free exercise of religion.

Plus, it also violates the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993, a law which was duly enacted during President Clinton’s term of office. It is an assault on our conscience and collides the government against religious freedom.

Here’s the simple bottom line: The mandate is unlawful!

++A “lawless administration.”

President Obama’s “mandates” have not only stretched the Constitution – they have broken it! Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) recently declared that the Obama administration “has become a lawless administration.”

When a President refuses to enforce the law of the land, he has broken faith with his oath of office. He has become a law breaker –in this case, the broken law is the Constitution of the United States.

Sadly, we have seen unprecedented presidential tyranny in practice for the three years Barack Obama has been in office.

++Legislative attempts to correct this alarming situation…

Right now in Congress, there are three pieces of legislation making their way through both Chambers that can counter the “contraceptive and abortifacient mandate”:

1.) Senator Roy Blunt's S.1318 is coming up for a Senate vote. Sen. Blount wrote, "This bill would just simply say that those health care providers don't have to follow that [ObamaCare] mandate if it violates their faith principles."

2.) Congressman Jeff Fortenberry's, "Respect for Rights of Conscience Act" has been approved for a House vote. Representative Fortenberry wrote that his Act, "…would repeal the controversial [ObamaCare] mandate, amending the 2010 health care law to preserve conscience rights for religious institutions, health care providers, and small businesses who pay for health care coverage."

3.) Senator Marco Rubio's "Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 2012" is headed for a Senate committee and will, "…repeal a new ObamaCare mandate that violates the religious liberties and conscience rights of faith-based institutions by forcing them to offer employees insurance coverage for contraceptives."

Liberty Counsel Action is supporting the passage of all or any of these bills – which will likely be reconciled into one bill if the individual measures pass their respective Chamber.

I am calling on you to take a minute to tell your elected officials to pass these bills! This is extremely important!

I urge you to take action with us and sign Liberty Counsel Action’s petition to stop Barack Obama’s subversion of our religious liberties and conscience rights. With your help, we will be delivering multiplied tens of thousands of petitions to key Members of the House and Senate very soon.

Please, click here to sign:

Libery Council Action Petition

A recent CNS News headline describes the issue’s urgency: “Catholic, Lutheran, Baptist, and Jewish Leaders Swear Disobedience to HHS Contraception Mandate.”

Challenged with the choice of going against the federal government or violating their religious faith and moral consciences, these leaders are standing up to this outrageous new “mandate"!

Liberty Counsel Action stands with these courageous leaders!

In a recent Congressional hearing, Rabbi Meir Soloveichik told representatives, “Freedom of conscience and of religion… is first and most sacred to Americans.”

The leaders I’ve mentioned, and a great many more, know the danger of allowing this attack on people of faith to stand. They know this mandate is the proverbial “camel’s nose in the tent.”

Christine, I am simply asking you to sign a petition to STOP President Obama’s mandates BEFORE we are forced to make even more difficult decisions.

Please, click here to add your name to this critical petition, which will soon be delivered to Capitol Hill:

Good morning Christine. Wow what a great post! I went to Citizen Wells blog via the link here (I also noticed the link to Cry and Howl. TY) He is doing an outstanding job in addressing the fraud perpetrated on the American people. I did comment on one of his posts and will add the blog to my blog roll today.
You're right in suggesting there is so much going on it's overwhelming. I get the same feeling every day; thus the "Rant" thing from yesterday. Some weasel commented on that suggesting I'm "paranoid" or "hateful"! ;)
Nah, not ol' Steve ... I'm just a regular guy concerned about the direction in which we're moving.
I suppose I'll get Levin's book on your recommendation. Thanks for everything you're doing. Oh, I signed the petition.
Have a good Sunday with your family.

Happy Sunday Steve! A good sermon always refreshes me after the boatload of political chaos that I deal with each day here at my blog! I don't blame you one bit for your "rant." And don't let the troll weasels get to you. Fortunately, many of mine have fled.

There are tens of thousands of people who feel like we do about the terrible policies of ObaMARXIST and his cronies. The rest of the public probably just don't know about them or aren't paying any attention. Of course there are the forever ObamaBorgBots who would support him no matter how badly he trashes our Constitution.

I'm glad that you will get Levin's book. It's sells for $15.00 at Costco. I think that if enough Americans read it, Obummer will lose in a landslide in 2012! Here's a post that will encourage you:

Whoa… Barack Obama Is Even Underwater in Washington State

I think that the media of mass deception is often filled with propaganda "polls." Who are these people who are voting in such polls? Are they all rabid liberal democrats like Debbie Wasserman Schultz or what?
I'm with Sarah Palin. I don't trust them.

I do think that the state polls are probably more accurate. And, if the WA state poll is correct, then Obummer will be gone in 2013!

I wish that the ballot challenge trial in Georgia had a better outcome. But I think that this regime threatens with death any judge that would rule against Der Obama Fuhrer.

On that happy note...have a good Sunday with your family too, Steve! I appreciate your encouraging words about my posting. Keep up the great work at your blog too!
