We hear of a new scandal every day. Our government is going all 1984 on us. Persecution for the Christian faith is undoubtedly not far behind.
Have you noticed what is missing?
There is a ridiculously obvious absence of outrage or even real concern by our elected representatives. They passed the laws that enable this totalitarian shift, and they have no concern for us. They apparently see themselves as insulated from the effects of this change in policy.
I recognize the few voices of concern, and that the Pravda-esque Media immediately dives into the effort to marginalize those who speak out, but there are too few speaking. Apparently, free-enteprise and a representative republic (for the people, or the people and by the people) is only for small countries and pre-industrialized civilizations. Once you get too big or too prosperous, shameless socialism and oppression is required.
The Democrats have taken the lead in finally bringing us to a state-controlled, socialist society. The Republicans are taking us there too, but first they have to run against the way things are before they acquiesce to the need to put us serfs back in our place. Thank-you congress for undoing the Revolutionary war and bringing us back to the monarchy.
It does get a little tiring now and then to watch those we elect to preserve our liberties betraying us.
