Coup d'état

What this is ladies and gentlemen, citizens of this once great country, is a Coup d'état. The state has slowly and inexorably moved until it is now in a position to take control of everything. The Federal government prints the money used to turn the wheels of our American economy. So if you're a fascist dictator, and you want total control of everything, all you have to do is print enough money to buy everything. When it owns all the banks, when it owns all the car manufacturers, shipping, trucking, etc., at what point will Americans wake up and realize that we're no longer running this thing? At what point will we realize that the steering wheel we're holding is less than a joke? The real controls were taken from our hands and in their place they put toys. Maybe yours is an iPhone, or an iPad. Maybe you're holding a Nintendo DS-3, or a Kindle-HD, or maybe it's just a crappy fake plastic steering wheel? How much is that money in your wallet worth? If you quadruple the dollars in circulation each dollar is only worth two-bits.

If you were wondering how Obama plans to pay for all the things he's promised the people, wonder no more. He plans to print more money. This unprecedented fiscal legerdemain requires a distraction to be successful. Look over there! It's rich people. They're not paying their fair share. Obama's a circus ringmaster and this shabby vaudeville three-ring circus comes complete with bread for the fans. It's zanier than a Sunday afternoon of professional wrestling complete with Hulk Hogan and The Undertaker. Don't worry about learning to read, Obama will tell you everything you need to know during the six o'clock news hour and everything you need to buy during the commercial breaks.

Gradually, step by step, we the people have been stripped of our Constitutional rights. More recently, the state is moving to seize full power and eliminate the threat of armed insurrection by mobs of crazed Constitution waving, Tea Party voting, NRA member, Bible thumping maniacs.

The state doesn't care about illegal guns. None of these gun control measures they're talking about instituting following the recent Sandy Hook massacre are designed to protect civilians from mass murderers. They are, without exception, all designed to identify the real potential trouble makers—the people who still labor under the deluded misconception that they have constitutional rights. Lets take a look at those rights. Get out your black Sharpie and your bill of rights and start at one.
  1. Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
  2. A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
  3. No Soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the Owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law.
  4. The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
  5. No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.
  6. In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defence.
  7. In Suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried by a jury, shall be otherwise re-examined in any Court of the United States, than according to the rules of the common law.
  8. Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.
  9. The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people. [you didn't know about this one anyway]
  10. The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
As the Federal government gradually becomes a fascist state, scenes like this will become more and more common place. Apparently not only was Joe McCarthy right on target, he was already too late.
