"In confidence in question of power let no more confidence be given to man but bind them to the chains of the Constitution." Thomas Jefferson. When Jefferson made this statement he was merely reinforcing his words in the Declaration of Independence, "But when a long train of abuses and usurpations , pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security". He was talking to us folks ... "We the People"! That would make it our duty to 'throw off' our current president and at least 80% of our congress, representatives and Senators alike.

Prior to Obama's election, back in 2008, I wrote a blog on this site titled Are We Witnessing the Demise of an Empire?. It was meant as a historical reference as to how a free societies turned to socialism, fascism, and communism over the last several thousand years. History repeating itself, so to speak. I believe we have thus far witnessed a strong beginning to this process in action. The items I stated must be controlled by those in power were the armed forces, communications, religion, health care, education, the judicial system, labor, the industrial complex, and the financial system. Those are the main ones although there are other smaller, but no less harmful ones.

The armed forces: I believe we can readily agree that the president and congress have complete control already. The military is run via political expedience, not its ability to win battles under their generals. If re-elected, Obama will carry through with sequestration, although he has just promised us sequestration will not take place. A large portion of the cuts will fall on the military over the next ten years ... $1T dollars!

Communications: There has been, and is, an ever increasing call to eliminate Fox News and all conservative radio programs from the national airwaves. Presumably this is to "equal out' the extreme ultra liberal talk show hosts for supposed 'fairness' purposes. Liberals already control the 'lame stream newspaper media' and now must move quickly to "shut up" the radio host opposition. Facts and truths are lethal to liberal progressivism.

Religion: No 'under God' in our pledge of allegiance, no crosses on public property revering the sacrifices of our veterans, and on and on. Just the other day a Texas woman was not permitted to vote because she had a T-shirt on with the logo 'Vote the Bible'. The polling representatives said it was voter intimidation and she had to cover it up. Who did it intimidate? Don't both candidates profess a belief in Jesus Christ? How did they determine she was advertising for Mitt Romney?

Health Care: The Affordable Care Act ... ObamaCare. Beginning in tax year 2013, we will be receiving an additional form to file along with our tax forms. To fill in this form you will receive a copy of your insurance plan coverage from your provider (insurance company) so the IRS can determine if your plan is in compliance with ObamaCare guidelines. Additionally, all your personal health records along with your health care ID number are to be included and provided on this form!

Education: Our schools already teach 'revised' history, great fiction books have been removed from the school libraries, sex is taught in the elementary classrooms, and the federal Department of Education is supplying more and more mandated requirements to the states to implement. These mandates overrule state mandates that may already be in effect. In plain words, 'government' education is taking over for the states and the parents in our local public schools!

The judicial system: We have judges making law at the bench. Our Supreme Court is the latest to fall prey. The Constitution requires that all Supreme Court justices rule, on laws as written, on the intent of the Constitution even if the ruling goes totally against their personal belief system. The Constitution allows for impeachment of any judge(s) who consistently fail(s) the test. Shamefully, we would lose the majority of our Supreme Court judges ... all the liberals and our Chief Justice Roberts. Yes, even Roberts. He changed the word 'penalty' to "tax' when signing on with the liberal judges to decide ObamaCare is constitutional. The Supreme Court is to judge the constitutionality on the law they are reviewing "as they are presented". No words of the law are to be changed! Roberts failed!

Labor: Union workers are pitifully being 'used' for the political purpose of re-electing corrupt politicians. Union bosses are donating millions of dollars to politicians who give them tremendous power, regardless of whether or not their workers agree with the use of their dues. In every socialist or communist state ever formed, private unions have been abolished and replaced by government unions. Labor is always, historically, used for socialist or communist leaders to gain power, and once power is secured, the unions are no longer needed and they are eliminated. All union members, along with their non-union counterparts, swiftly become government dependents.

The industrial complex: We've already watched as the government took over AIG, Chrysler, General Motors, etc. In the case of General Motors, our president used your taxpayer money to 'give' the United Auto Workers major ownership of the company. They get to keep their wages and expensive benefit packages. The government touts their success in 'coming back'. GM just announced better sales than last year for last quarter, lackluster profits for the quarter, and a profit warning for next quarter. The $25B they still owe you will never be paid back. If the government sold our stock in the company, the stock price would have to be quintuple what it is now! Good luck with that one.

The financial system: I'll shorten this as much as possible. Congress required banks to lend to folks who did not have enough collateral or income to purchase homes they could not pay for. Then Congress demanded that banks follow 80,000 regulations put in place to operate profitably ... which became impossible. Then, Congress told banks that they had to 'forgive' part of the principal foreclosed folks could not pay in order to lower their monthly payments. This action diluted the value of the dollar even further since the money was printed with no backup to support the monetary influx. This, in itself, ensures the soon coming financial collapse of the entire country! Welcome to Greece!

Remember, there is no partisanship in socialism. If you are a far left middle class liberal currently bent on voting for socialism or a far right conservative voting for capitalism, you will both suffer the same fate ... serfdom to the government ruling elite! Both socialism and capitalism are non-partisan. If the socialist gets elected, socialists will eventually understand that they 'got what they asked' for and sit around scratching their heads wondering 'why the hell did I ask for this' ... why was I so naive?! On the other hand, if the conservative wins the election, the conservatives will wipe the sweat from their brows and utter a great sigh of relief because they will know what they just avoided!

Final thought ... Obama just floated the idea of adding a cabinet position to be called The SECRETARY of Business! How unique! The conservatives, the so-called 'wing nuts' of the nation, are trying to elect a proven business leader/executive as PRESIDENT of the United States! Who knew? Either way ... Vote!
