A Runaway Government

govSupreme Court Justices, Intelligence Agency Heads and Congressmen are all warning  of Tyranny in America.

Former Supreme Court Justice David Souter told University of New Hampshire School of Law that the “pervasive civic ignorance” in the U.S. could bring dictatorship: “I don’t worry about our losing a Republic. . .because I’m afraid of a foreign invasion or  a military coup. . .What I worry about is when problems are not addressed, people will not know who is responsible, and when the problems get bad enough. . .some one person will come forward and say: ‘Give me total power and I will solve this problem.’ That is how the Roman republic fell. . .”

Senator Frank Church – who chaired the famous “Church Committee” into the unlawful FBI Cointel program, and who chaired the Senate Foreign Relations Committee – said in 1975: “the National Security Agency’s capability any time could be turned on the American people, and no American would have any privacy left. . .there would be no place to hide.  If a dictator ever took over, the NSA could enable it to impose total tyranny, and there would be no way to fight back.”

The former head of the program for the NSA recently held his thumb and forefinger close together, and said: “We are, like, that far from a turnkey totalitarian state.”

Rep. Michael Burgess (R-TX) says that he has been “thrown out of more meetings in D.C.. . . I asked the Speaker of the House to “post the bailout bill on the internet for at least 24 hours instead of passing the largest piece of legislation in the U.S.  financial history in the ‘dark of night.’ I understand we are under martial law. . .”

Congresswoman Kaptur (D-OH) stated:  “My message to the American people. . .High financial crimes have been committed.  The normal legislative process has been shelved.  Only a few insiders are doing the dealing. . . These criminals have so much political power that they can shut down the normal legislative process. . . The people pushing these deals are the very ones who are responsible for the implosion on Wall Street.  They were fraudulent then and they are fraudulent now. . .there are many other indications that tyranny has already come to America, including the permanent stationing of U.S. troops inside the country to quell civil unrest and the probably suspension of normal constitutional government for a state of emergency continuity of government operations.”

In 2006, the Center for Budget and Policy Priorities wrote that “House leadership invokes martial law, forcing members to vote on key bills without full knowledge of what they are voting on,” a move that “represents erosion of the democratic process.”

Indeed, many people, including high-level politicians, have been warning of tyranny in the U.S. for some time:

  • Former prominent republican congressman Bob Barr stated that the U.S. is close to becoming a totalitarian society and that the Bush administration was using fear to try to ensure that this happens.
  • Current U.S. Congressman Ron Paul stated, that the government “is determined to have martial law” and that the government is hoping to get the people “fearful enough that they will accept the man on the white horse.”

Even former President Jimmy Carter has voiced his concerns that in the wake of the NSA spying scandal that  “America has no functioning democracy.

Judge Andrew Napolitano says that Under Obama’s watch, the majority has, by active vote or refusal to interfere,  killed hundreds of innocents — including three Americans — by drone, permitted  federal agents to write their own search warrants, bombed Libya into tribal  lawlessness without a declaration of war so that a mob there killed our  ambassador with impunity, attempted to force the Roman Catholic Church to  purchase insurance policies that cover artificial birth control, euthanasia and  abortion, ordered your doctor to ask you whether you own guns, used the IRS to  intimidate outspoken conservatives, seized the telephone records of newspaper  reporters without lawful authority and in violation of court rules, and obtained  a search warrant against one of my Fox colleagues by misrepresenting his true  status to a federal judge.

Obama’s radical  rejection of the rule of law  presents not only a clear and  present danger to our freedom, but has fatal consequences.

What we have is a runaway government, dismissive of the Constitution it has  sworn to uphold, contemptuous of the law it is required to enforce and driven by  its own values of maximum control and minimum personal freedom.  And we have a  Congress supine enough to let this happen, as well as a judiciary so tangled in  its own arcane procedures that immeasurable human freedom will be destroyed.
