Our constitution guarantees the rights of the individual. What does fascism guarantee? It guarantees that the state will highly regulate industry and labor, and suppress all opposition. What does socialism guarantee? Well, it guarantees that all industries are controlled and/or managed by the government or associations of labor(unions). Just the fact that government is managing or controlling anything is laughable in itself since it is an abject failure at managing or controlling so many things today. Just look around at the tax code, medicare, medicaid, Fannie mae, Freddie mac, public schools, the post office, HUD, and on and on.
You might think that there is no way that this could come about in our country. But I submit to you that we are already on our way to either fascism or socialism. The government owns at least one auto company, controls banks through the banking bill, healthcare through the healthcare bill and is controlling pay for execs and workers through a pay czar and minimum wage laws. Soon they may control energy, through the cap & trade bill. Oh, and let’s not forget the Chief Diversity Officer to control freedom of speech over the airwaves.
What happens to the individual in all of this? The individual becomes the pawn of the government. Exactly the opposite of the intentions of the constitution. What happens to freedom & liberty? They are sqashed out of existence. The state eventually becomes a machine with no judgement. Applying all laws literally and with beaurocrats arbitrarily making new regulations(pseudo-laws) on a whim.
The constitution is the only protection the individual has against the state. We must know it like the back of our hands. Read through it and demand that our senators, representatives, and the president apply it to all their legislation and executive orders. And if they don’t call them out on it. Persuade them to uphold the oath they took with mountains of pressure until they can do nothing else or fire them this November.
Our families, businesses, churches and our country are depending on you and me to put the lid back on our government and back in the box of limited government that the Founding Fathers created; The constitution .
