Our founders had a clear understanding through their study history of what made for good and bad government. So it is of little wonder that many of their writings seem prophetic in our day, being that our day is one in which forces from innumerable directions of are attempting take away all that makes us free. This has happened very slowly, as American Socialist Party Presidential Candidate Norman Thomas predicted. It did not start during the Obama administration. It has gone on for years. However, with non-representant representation in Washington such as John Conyers in the spotlight, the truth of what James Madison wrote is now becoming clear for all to see.

It will be of little avail to the people that the laws are made by men of their own choice if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood.

Our freedoms have been slowly and gradually chipped away through these laws that Congress has neither written nor read. Congress simply follows the marching orders of their party because they find power, strength, and funding within its circle.

Now the government exerts a certain amount of control over the financial sector. It has nationalized two of the big three automakers. Nearly half of all Americans during tax season are paid by the government more than they paid in taxes over the previous year. Most retired people receive money from the government monthly through Medicare and/or Social Security. Meanwhile, all of these historical “entitlements” have been enhanced over time, usually buried in a piece of “voluminous” legislation. Now on the horizon of the government’s reach is one-seventh of our economy in the form of healthcare, in the name of “fairness” to insure a small percentage of the entire population.

What is being built in America is the same system built in the United Kingdom. There the NHS has become the world’s third largest employer (UK total population: 61 million) behind only the Chinese Red Army (China total population: 1.34 billion) and the Indian Railroad (India total population: 1.17 billion). As in the UK, our government is building a voting block that will keep them in power, where their irrelevant “Republican” and “Democrat” squabbling will make many Americans feel like there is something important going on. When in reality these are nothing more than cousins having a family dispute. However, once the government controls over half the economy, it will be impossible to vote out those in power, as people will not vote for someone (or some party) they see as a threat to their livelihood, regardless of how moral or immoral they may be.
