    That when Obama care was ruled unconstitutional the government insisted on going ahead anyways .
    and When the Wisconsin Legislation presumable legally passed a law that was signed into the law the government decided to halt it going into effect?Rather then having a proper trial ?
    Anyone find this kind of behavior disturbing?

    Democratics are anarchists with a law library....It's not shocking or even disturbing anymore.

    In fact, I find it quite refreshing that they're operating out in the open now.

    They certainly are blatant about disregarding law when they disagree with the election or legal decision .The media seems generally disinterested as well.
    What an odd type of new rulers we now have , no longer government by law but ruled by political winds.

    Interesting term

    Soft Tyranny: Definition, Origination, Today.

    The world is in a crisis. The nation is divided. Every time a bill is signed by congress, we lose a little bit of liberty. Over time, all of these small changes add up and form what we call a soft tyranny.
    [​IMG]

    Soft Tyranny: Origination
    Where did the term "soft tyranny" originate and where has it occured?
    In 1835, Alexis de Tocqueville came up with the idea of soft tyranny during his texts titled Democracy in America. His goal was to explain why the representative democracy in America is succeeding and is failing everywhere else. He speculates in his work about the future of the philosophies of America and how they will be threatened.

    He mentioned terms such as "soft tyranny," "soft despotism" and "tyranny of the majority" to describe how these events would happen. Basically, through gradual, small changes in policy, the United States would be fundamentally transformed into a state controlled completely by the government.
    [​IMG]

    When a soft tyranny occurs, there is usually a majority in the governmental houses. The system of checks and balances doesn't matter because they generally all agree on the same principles. This allows these representatives and policymakers to impose whatever will they wish upon the population.

    In this case it is bureaucrats and the judiciary

    The tyranny has come so slowly it is unnoticed
    low flow toilets.
    Cafe standards
    CLF bulbs

    I think a list of the infringing bureaucratic edicts should be listed so when a troglodyte elitist asks "What freedoms have you lost?, we can show them.
