In the process of America morphing from a republic to a democracy to a totalitarian government the only freedom in America came to mean the freedom to do and say whatever it takes to sell a product or a service. Inevitably, that dubious freedom has all but eroded away. The erosion began in the 19th century when sharpshooters bought legislation that gave them monopolies and tens of millions of dollars; billions in todays dollars. Next came money laws. Those are laws that force the public to purchase a specific product or service. Money laws often apply force indirectly. The catalytic converter on automobiles is a textbook example of indirect force. Direct or indirect the consumer pays the cost. NOTE: The Federal Reserve System is nothing more than a money law forcing the public to purchase whatever bankers are selling. That includes bankers selling someone elses property namely the country. David Rockefeller said the following in 1991. That means bankers have been selling this country piece by piece for more than 60 years. On the local level cities and towns forced builders to install smoke alarms, install smaller water tanks on toilets, and so on. In every case government force was applied to one segment of the population only. The Affordable Care Act took force to the next level. Today, EVERYBODY must purchase whatever the government dictates: Whenever it involves the economy Democrats mean the welfare of the parasite class. Note the message Hoyer sent to every wannabe parasite: Payoff the right officials and the government will force the American people to buy your product or service. Wall Street sharpshooters and corporate executives who benefit the most from government force believe they are still free smug in the knowledge that only the suckers lost their freedoms. One day the sharpshooters will awake and see that they, too, lost their freedom on the day they helped the government force the public to purchase anything. I doubt if the wise guys yet realize they lost their own freedom when they partnered up with the Socialist priesthood in spite of T. J.s warning: At the same time Americans are losing their God-given freedoms to totalitarian priests democracy is on the march everywhere. I can understand it in Third World countries where the false promise of freedom through democracy sells better than ice cubes in a desert. I cant understand it when free people willingly march backward toward democracy. Prime Minister Julia Gillard apparently does not know that it aint democracy if it is not run by cashed-up interest groups, nor did she ever hear of John Adams: It gets better down under: The Tea Party! Is that guy for real. Doesnt he know that the American media wrote the Tea Partys obituary months ago? Even if Gillard and Swan are correct Tea Partiers consider it a compliment. Now for the fun part: Forcing people to vote is the strangest variation of democracy money law that Ive ever heard of. Mr. Adams would gleefully call it assisted suicide. Finally, there are two kinds of political animals in this world. Those who always find somebody in government to follow, and those who always find somebody in government to avoid. I must count myself among the latter because finding anyone in government worth admiring is as rare as finding a virgin in a whorehouse.
