Once a nation loses its liberties there is little chance of ever getting those liberties back again without a great shedding of blood and enormous loss of life. The best example of this is Germany before World War II. The German people voted Hitler into office and then permitted him to remove one freedom after another until they were enslaved by him and his totalitarian policies. Germany was a free, wealthy, sophisticated and modern nation until Hitler began changing it for his own ends, and eventually destroying millions of lives as a result.
America is being destroyed just as Germany was destroyed, piece-by-piece, liberty-by-liberty, inch-by-inch. Americans have been so wealthy, so comfortable and so free for so long that we have forgotten the miserable existence a majority of the people of the world live, and if Obama and the EPA have their way, our own standard of living will begin to crash around us rather quickly.
Along with various unconstitutional invasions of our rights and liberties over the last 3 years (forced socialized medicine; the destruction of contract law with the General Motors and Chrysler takeovers; the Attorney General ignoring voter intimidation and voter fraud violations; the government telling a private company (Boeing) that it cannot establish a manufacturing plant in South Carolina; the government telling farmers in California that they cannot irrigate their fields for fear of harming a fish; shutting down all oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico; denying a new and much needed source of energy from Canada with the Keystone XL project), we now see an administration that is forcing the shutdown of standing, operating power generation plants which will adversely impact millions of lives immediately if allowed to take place. Add to this list the illegal and unconstitutional appointment of a new finance czar by Obama and you can see the clouds gathering immediately ahead for America if our representatives in Congress and the Senate don't get some courage and oppose this golfing, vacationing, 747-loving fool. Our constitution is under attack and we must unite to oppose this unforgivable act by the administration, or our liberties will be gone forever. God help us and our children if we are unsuccessful in our opposition to the pending takeover of this great nation.
