What did they expect would happen?
By Ronin, 9 Jan 11
By now, you probably already know an American Congress woman was targeted for assassination, a Federal Judge, and child, were among the dead and wounded.
As horrific as this latest incident of violence is, I have been expecting it. This administration has spent tens of billions of taxpayer’s dollars, refused to respect the will of the voters, refused transparency, practiced partisan politics; they pushed unwanted and unpopular agendas and more.
I am not blaming the victims; the violence was unnecessary and mindless. What I am attempting to do is show cause and effect. You can use history to track where we are in a timeless process.
While Americans lost jobs, their homes and economic status, politicians refused to protect what jobs remained, our borders and instead concentrated on issues like gay rights over the basic needs of the majority. They also refused to see all the evidence that Americans are growing distrustful and angry at them.
The ruling elite are consistent on one thing, they never learn. Although this was most likely just what it seemed to be, the act of a lone nut with a personal grudge. Politicians have already jumped on the attack for personal gain and are already pushing private agendas and asking for extreme measures to “counter the increasing threat”.
Politicians are blaming rival politicians and groups while ignoring their own calls for “radical change” and for the people to “rise up” or “take to the streets.” The irony of a leftist attacking a leftist escaped them. They got exactly what they asked for.
In the name of “protecting us”, look for the politicians to rush gun control, control the net and for a foolproof way to identify (track) computers and their operators. Instead of working hard for the voters, they have once again decided to control them. Instead of working for the people, they now see a need to be protected from the people. With that mindset, they will become a self-licking ice cream cone. They more they oppress the voters they more of chance they will find themselves needing protection.
There is no real protection from violence; our ruling elite work and live on the same planet as the rest of us. The people they are pissing off, feed them, drive them, wait on them, guard them and more. None of the people caring for them lives in their gated communities.
Look south of our country and then look around the planet, there are only three ways to remove politicians, they retire, they are voted out of office or they are assassinated. Although thankfully rare in the US, the practice of political assassination is more common in other countries.
Violence always spikes when people are desperate. I for one do not want to see an America that has to hide its politicians to protect them. Nevertheless, that is where we are headed.
When I saw the little banner cross my screen, “Congresswomen shot” my first thought was that it has started. Welcome to the third world.
Having been both to war and on “peace keeping operations”, I know the evil that man can do. I also understand why civil wars start. When people lose respect, grow distrustful of the ruling elite and they feel that they are out of options, violence is almost always the answer.
If our country’s decline continues long enough, lone wolfs will be replaced by organized groups. If that happens, I sincerely, hope that you have paid attention and stock piled weapons and food. You need to plan now, where and how you will disperse your arsenal, who will you share that information with-the like minded or as many criminals as you can find. Are you a respectful law abiding citizen or a potential insurgent, do you decide or your political masters?
Politicians now fear the people, we have been here before and our history shows us what to expect. The one thing that can stop the madness is the simplest to do. Politicians can decide to be transparent and to hold themselves accountable.
Politicians can also do the opposite and push measures to control the people, confiscate their weapons and force the people to bend to their will.
Politicians can control your income, your food, decide where you can live, how much power that you can use, what you can see on line, how you educate your children and practice your religion by telling you which types of people and what groups you must respect.
Power mad politicians could one day be so egotistical as to tell you what kind of light bulbs you can have …. Oh crap.Explore posts in the same categories: Abuse of Power, By Ronin, congress sucks, criminal activity, Economics, Education, Fighting Back, know your enemy, Obama Sucks
