You Will Do Until A Dictator Comes Along

File Under: Don't Confuse Me With Facts

These signs are ridiculous: Obama is not a communist and was born in America.  Period.

How do you know you might be living under the regime of a dictatorship? Your first clue would be if you live in a country such as: China, North Korea, Iran, or Cuba, you have a very good chance of being under the control of a dictator of one flavor or another.  Since the "fall" of Communism and the rise of Puppet Democracy it might be harder in other parts of the modern, civilized world to recognize the signs that your freedom is being eroded or is nonexistent.  Let us examine what might trigger an alert citizen to the danger that their supposedly democratic Republic of elected representatives is actually more reminiscent of an old school dictatorship greedily holding on to power under the veil of liberty:

1) Unconstitutional Legislation and Executive Orders

National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012, Round 1

National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012, Round 2

National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2013, Round 3

2) Oppression, Suppression, and Detention of Political Opponents

Bradley Manning (WikiLeaks)

Aaron Swartz (SOPA)

3) Assassination of Citizens, Torture, and Violation of Due Process

Murder of Abdulrahman Anwar al-Awlaqi (16-year-old, Natural U.S. Citizen)

Administration Response (to above murder)

Renditions (Kidnappings)

4) Disarm Potential Resistance By Pushing For Gun-Control Under the Guise of Public Safety

When Stalin assumed his mantle as "Marxist dictator" in 1922, the Communist party wasn't even a decade old.  Stalin was insane and the people (an enormous lot of people) of the newly formed (read: forced together) USSR were reticent to step in line.  Therefore, Stalin was more that a little ham-fisted and a bit maniacal in execution of the blueprint for Lenin's dictatorial theory.  He felt, "eh, a few million countrymen need to be shot in the face - for the Fatherland."  The Democratic Republic might be young in comparison to the United Kingdom, Italy, France, or China but when George W. Bush or Barack Obama were sworn in as Presidents, our nation had been in the business of subverting the public interest for over 225 years.  It is now 2013, the president does not need to shoot people in the face.  First World dictators are significantly more sophisticated than that these days.  They learned from Hitler and others you don't have to kill those who lay down and die, or take rights that are freely abdicated.  And those who do resist? At the president's disposal are: Predator drones, the IRS, the FBI, the ATF, the SEC, the CIA, the NSA, and executive orders.  You can go from being Jane Q. Public without so much as a traffic violation, to being water-boarded in a country the name of which you can't even pronounce, admitting to having tea with a one-eyed purple people-eater in Afghanistan faster that you can recite the Pledge of Allegiance; and all it will take is a phone call and a few keystrokes on a keyboard.  No death squads or death camps required.
"When fascism comes to America, it will not be in brown and black shirts. It will not be with jack-boots. It will be Nike sneakers and Smiley shirts . . . Germany lost the Second World War. Fascism won it." - George Carlin, 2005
This is not World War II, or even the Cold War, and we don't live in the Third World.  This is 21st century America in the Information Age, where everything happens on the strength of the dollar and the spin of the electron.  Our work is virtual, our worth is virtual, our debt is virtual, and our identity is virtual.  Today we could be here, and tomorrow could be the beginning of a decades long fight by our friends and family to figure out what happened to us.  It is time to stop being naive and open our eyes to the reality of our existence: we live in Babylon - and there is a hand writing on the wall.
