I hate to sound like I’m overstating things, but we really are living in scary times. It’s not just that our current administration is pushing the country toward a statist path, there are many others trying to institute a world government using the excuse of “climate change”. They are trying to get a treaty written in Copenhagen for signing in December. They know they need to hurry because people are becoming more aware of what a sham the whole AGW premise is. The public has lost interest in it as a threat and people are seeing that the world is getting colder, not warmer.
This world government is being set up to monitor every aspect of people’s lives. Mark Steyn explains what a sickening prospect the whole thing is here.
Meanwhile, in the states, they are trying to put all kinds of food fascist nonsense in the health care bills. One of the things in there is a demand for calorie counts on all menus and ending machines. You might say, so what? Well, that is how they always start. First they set up the premise that something is bad for you, then they start banning it on that basis. I am old enough to remember when “no smoking” was a recommendation. They asked people politely. Now you can’t smoke anywhere except in special zones and rooms.
You may say again, “So? Smoking is bad for you. Second hand smoke kills.” Yes, smoking is bad for you over a long period of time. But second hand smoke has never been proven to be bad for you, but you would never know that from the government propaganda. I am not endorsing smoking, but they will go after the things you like eventually because control freaks never tire of ruining other people’s pleasures.
Eco nazis want everyone to stop eating meat. Right now they’re recommending it, but believe me, when they get the power to do so, they will start demanding it.
That is what the new fascist are, the nanny staters. Unlike the old fascists, they don’t come at you with a gun, they try to make you agree to their control using guilt and scare tactics.
We simply can’t let them win. We’re at the point where we either fight back or face a very unpleasant future ruled by evil imbeciles.
