Fundamentally Transforming America

We’re being told that President Obama lied to us for our own good, it’s too late to do anything about it now, and even those strongly opposed to ObamaCare must now pitch in to fix it.  We must obey not only the letter of the law, but the will of the State.  What sort of government makes such demands of its citizens?  Has this story ever had a happy ending?

When a Government centrally plans and controls what industry produces – its call Fascism.  Not nazism so let’s please keep the histrionics to a minimum.   We as America are losing our way.  This is not the Government of the people, by the people, for the people the framers of our Constitution envisioned.  This is a Government of elitists, for elitists abusing their power to keep themselves in power by accumulating more power.

The attached article is brilliant.  Please read it in full.

Some Highlights:

The big promises mostly concerned the superior wisdom of the State and its planners, who were better at managing industrial production than private citizens.  They weren’t looking to make industry the outright property of the State, as communists did, but the core idea was to make a small group of genius government planners the senior partners in every business venture.  This way, the power of industry would be harnessed for the social good of all.

Sound familiar?

The government became synonymous with the nation – nothing makes a fascist angrier than efforts to distinguish between the two.  Those who met the demands of the State and its dictator were making sacrifices for the good of the nation.  Who could say no to such demands?  (Traitors, that’s who!)

Wow, that is right out of Harry Reids Government shut down talking points isn’t it?

We are in the middle of another lesson in the reason fascist State control of private industry always gets ugly.  It’s because the Little Partners are always expected to shoulder the blame for failure.  They, along with disobedient citizens, become the scapegoats for failure.  The Senior Partners in government are rarely willing to admit they made any mistakes at all, let alone criminal fraud, and they’ll never concede that their plans were flawed from inception, because that would be a devastating critique of their invulnerable ideology.  There are no Bad Ideas, just the occasional bit of sloppy execution… and that’s mostly the fault of the Little Partners entrusted by the ruling class to carry out its grand designs, combined with “sabotage” from the citizens and representatives who didn’t embrace the program.

This point is too easy to prove.  Simply tune into Czarina Kathleen’s testimony or, if you can stomach him, one of Jay Carney’s press conferences.  This next one sends chills up my spine:

Error cannot be admitted by the ruling class, because that would jeopardize their hold on power.  The people might turn against them, which is a particular danger where voting is still permitted.  You’ll notice the acolytes of the super-State are very quick to insist their “achievements” are no longer subject to dissolution through voting.  They speak of the “settled law of the land” when they plant their flag on ground they are unwilling to concede.  That’s another way of saying you unruly peasants are no longer permitted to dissent, disobey, or even vote for a different course of action.  That’s the literal meaning of “settled law of the land,” is it not?  (Of course, the ruling class and the central Party reserve the power to change or ignore any law they dislike, or find inconvenient.  For them, nothing is “settled,” ever.)

A lack of accountability, on ANY topic, is the only thing you can’t count on from this Administration.  That and a constant stream of lies

The spin from frantic Democrats boils down to saying these lies were necessary, for the good of the American people.  They had to be misled onto the proper path.  They don’t really know what’s good for them

You are free to choose – so long as you pick what I tell you to pick.  Here is where it gets really scary:

The ideology behind ObamaCare is poised to profit from its failure by demanding even more power and money for single-payer socialized medicine, provided they can get through these last bumpy months, when resistance from the people is still a significant concern

A private company would be sued.  Executives jailed.  In Government, corruption is rewareded and incompetence used as an excuse for more control.  It continues:

For the rest of us, there is only obedience. The permissible level of disobedience and dissent falls rapidly when government expands, until it reaches the point where even verbal dissent is unacceptable, because it rouses passions that interfere with orderly State control The ruling class, meanwhile, demands ever more vigorous demonstrations of loyalty from its dependents – many of whom are very, very wealthy.  That involves conjuring up lots of enemies for the people to rally against.  History has shown this to be a process that just gets worse and worse, until it gets… well, you know.

Another hallmark of this Administration.  No internal dissent – external opposition is immediately crushed.  No debate.  No national dialogue.  If I want your point of view, I’ll give it to you. The article concludes:

We’re being told that President Obama lied to us for our own good, it’s too late to do anything about it now, and even those strongly opposed to ObamaCare must now pitch in to fix it.  We must obey not only the letter of the law, but the will of the State.  What sort of government makes such demands of its citizens?  Has this story ever had a happy ending?
