IS OBAMA TAKING US INTO THE TOTALITARIAN SOCIALIST REGIME AND AWAY FROM FREE ENTERPRISE AND INDIVIDUAL LIBERTIES?
As a former political science and history student, my education taught me that Totalitarianism is a term used in political science to refer to an ‘ideology or organization' whose goals and aims are to control every aspect of my life. For personal political reasons, totalitarianism has now become an issue with me.
Before the 20th century, communications were not fast enough to allow a central government to collect information on a large number of its citizens in real time, the mass media was not developed enough to allow the existence of all-pervasive propaganda, and weapons were not effective enough to allow a relatively small number of armed soldiers to control a much bigger unarmed population. In the 20th century those technological barriers fell, and totalitarian government became a possibility.
Countries that have had Totalitarian power previously have had Individuals with ‘personality cults' built around them. Sounding familiar? All used similar means - extreme forms of censorship and police state tactics as well as other things - to force their authoritarian rule and to bend the people's will to their position. Is the Democrat Party controlling Congress part of the ‘personality cult' and currently bending the people's will with ramming the ObamaCare down the people's throat? 52% and growing against!
As such a ‘welfare state' involves a direct transfer of funds from the public sector to welfare recipients, but indirectly, the private sector is forced to contributing to those funds by authoritarian redistributionist policies through taxation. Sounding familiar? Thus, the welfare state has been referred to as a type of "mixed economy."
For me, that is exactly what I see, and that is exactly where we are headed; and we were already partially there before the advent of Obamanomics! Stop the liberal, socialist tide before it is too late! Get out the vote in 2010 and support true conservatives, private enterprise and Individual liberties for all!
