There are two opposing forces locked in eternal combat. When one force gains the upper hand, the other force is subjugated. Throughout history the pendulum has swung from one end to the other.
Most recently the forces of individual freedom scored a victory with the founding of the United States and creation of the U.S. Constitution. However, over the past two hundred years the forces of domination have been slowly eroding the belief in and support for liberty.
This epic battle is documented in a speech delivered by the Secretary of Agriculture under President Eisenhower, Ezra T. Benson. He said:
“I have personally witnessed the heart-rending results of the loss of freedom. I have talked face-to-face with the godless Communist leaders.So it is that Khrushchev has been proven right. We may not have had a socialist military coup that changed things overnight, but we have had a purposefully gradual attack on our belief in the essential nature of freedom. These “small doses of socialism” have changed America and have been the cause for the loss of much of our freedom.
“It may surprise you to learn that I was host to Mr. Khrushchev for a half-day when he visited the United States. Not that I’m proud of it. I opposed his coming then, and I still feel it was a mistake to welcome this atheistic murderer as a state visitor.
“As we talked face-to-face, he indicated that my grandchildren would live under Communism. After assuring him that I expected to do all in my power to assure that his, and all other grandchildren, will live under freedom, he [Khrushchev] arrogantly declared, in substance:‘You Americans are so gullible. No, you won’t accept communism outright. But we’ll keep feeding you small doses of socialism until you finally wake up and find you already have communism. We won’t have to fight you; we’ll so weaken your economy until you fall like overripe fruit into our hands.’”
In the latest saga, the forces of dominion are attempting to solidify their control. This is evident in three epic battles of the last couple years.
- First, it was our economic freedoms that came under attack when the Federal Reserve-propelled illusory housing and stock market boom crumbled.
Instead of letting the mal-invested assets liquidate, our government and the governments of the world have subjugated the people of the earth to an unbearable debt burden.
Those that have prospered from our economic demise have been the politburo-like corporate stockholders of our government officials. In addition, as Main Street plunges into despair, more and more federal bureaucrats are making six figures. In fact, it was recently revealed that the average federal employee now makes $30,000 more than private sector employees. Only in a communist system does the government class prosper while the rest of us wait in bread lines. Now these same bureaucrats are contemplating further bailouts for their corporate banking buddies.Since the initial Bush bailouts, and their expansion under President Obama, have come some even more dire threats to our freedom. If we fail to rise to defeat these threats, I am afraid that we will see the pendulum become affixed permanently in the direction of dominion and slavery.
- The second imminent threat to our freedom is the healthcare bill currently being deliberated in Washington.
The Healthcare act that will come out of these deliberations will claim to both make healthcare more affordable and increase healthcare choice. However, it will do the exact opposite.
Since the state of Massachusetts adopted a similar model of mandated health insurance, they have seen the fastest rise in the medical costs of any state in the union. The only way to control these costs in Massachusetts and at the Federal level will be through forced rationing. Your physician will become a slave of the system and will place you in a healthcare bread line.
In addition, anyone that is intimately connected with the current government programs Medicare and Medicaid, as I am, knows that these systems do not increase choice but rather restrict choice. It is often very difficult if not impossible for recipients of Medicaid to see specialists or to get advanced care. Such will be the case for the majority of Americans as we are forced into these programs.
- The third imminent threat to our freedom seeks to subjugate the people of the earth to a global government under the guise of pseudoscience.
As the ‘climategate’ emails and statements by presidents of the UN and the EU reveal, a global super state is in its final stages of completion. Climate change falsehoods will provide the impetus or stepping stone for the creation of this super state.
As recently revealed by Lord Monckton, this proposed system will create hundreds of new international bureaucracies and impose a 2% tax on the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of first-world nations. The proposals will also limit the development of third-world nations by setting a limit on the per-capita carbon production of these nations to roughly half of the per-capita carbon limit for first-world nations. This will serve to permanently confine these nations to poverty with no hope of escape.
It is not a mystery that the prosperity of a nation is directly tied to its carbon production. Without the ability to utilize carbon resources, these nations will never be able to compete with the first-world nations. In addition, the resultant poverty will condemn these populations to starvation, disease, and death.
In the end, each of us will have to answer to our conscience. Who among us will have the courage to make a phone call or write a letter? These seemingly simple acts are often all that is required to turn the tide. If we fail to act, our grandchildren will never forgive us for being the “gullible” Americans that let freedom bow down to slavery.

According to the FDIC, there were 8,384 banking institutions with $13.6 trillion of assets as of September 30, 2008. Hank Paulson has dished out $180 billion to the largest 30 banks in the country in an effort to keep them solvent. It has now become quite clear that the largest banks in the country, with the “smartest” MBAs, took excessive risk, created and then bought their own toxic derivatives, and lied to the public and their shareholders about their true financial position. So, we had about 8,000 banks that loaned money to people they knew in their local communities, kept the loans on their books, and generally acted like George Bailey. A handful of large banks did all of the damage to our global financial system, and these are the banks who are receiving all of the TARP billions. Maybe just maybe we should be giving the TARP money to the 8,000 conservative banks run by George Bailey-type bankers rather than the horrible, too-big-to-fail banks run by Mr. Potter-type bankers. Badly run banks need to be replaced by well run banks. Every time a bell rings, another bad banker gets a billion dollars. I see many Potterville’s in our future. - By James Quinn, Has America Jumped the Shark?, Financial Sense, December 9, 2008
