Anyone looking at current conditions in the United States is struck by the us against them mentality that exists between the government and its citizens. There are no longer two political parties in the sense that they stand for different things. Both political parties stand for more power and control.
Increasingly the country is split. Two distinct groups are now at war with each other. It is government versus the people.
Those who voted Republicans in via a landslide in the most recent election now see that it doesn’t matter. There is little difference between Democrat and Republican politicians. The two “opposing” parties might as well be renamed the Bloods and the Crips. They both stand for the same thing and that is bigger government and less freedom. The brands may be different but that is nothing more than marketing. Both parties want the same thing and that same thing has to do with your wealth and freedom. Both will do whatever it takes to be in charge. The country does not matter. Only their position in the trough matters.
We are no longer a government of the people, by the people and for the people. We are now a country of rulers and ruled. We now work for government, not the other way around.
To accomplish this feat, government had to divide us, pitting one group against another. Then they had to define behavior (rights guaranteed via the Constitution) as questionable if not downright illegal. Michael Snyder collected 72 types of American behavior that is now considered dangerous by our government. It is difficult to imagine anyone not falling into one or more of these categories and not being watched by government:
1.Those that talk about “individual liberties”
2.Those that advocate for states’ rights
3.Those that want “to make the world a better place”
4.“The colonists who sought to free themselves from British rule”
5.Those that are interested in “defeating the Communists”
6.Those that believe “that the interests of one’s own nation are separate from the interests of other nations or the common interest of all nations”
7.Anyone that holds a “political ideology that considers the state to be unnecessary, harmful,or undesirable”
8.Anyone that possesses an “intolerance toward other religions”
9.Those that “take action to fight against the exploitation of the environment and/or animals”
13.“The Patriot Movement”
14.“Opposition to equal rights for gays and lesbians”
15.Members of the Family Research Council
