How it was or could be

No links to anything in this one. Just a little musings on my part.

Once upon a time a government started and things happened. The government had people checking out and reporting on other people. Sometimes those people were arrested and afterwards never seen again. Sometimes they were outright shot.

Now we have a person of interest having others look for people and the things they might say and investigate them for what ever they might find, then they try to ruin those people.

Same thing a bit different in methods. You can destroy people in many different ways.

Once upon a time that same government decided that what belonged to the people really didn't belong to the people or that they could better control those things of the people (for their own good you know). So they confiscated what they wanted, where they wanted, and when they wanted. Wealth belonged to the government, not the people.

Now we have another government looking into taking peoples retirement accounts, yea just yanking them and placing them where that said government can "control" them, ah, for the good of the people. The sweetener is that they will take you back a few months and give you a bit of money you lost in the market due to the mistakes they first made. The bad thing is that 100% inheritable fund will become only a portion inheritable by your heirs. They get to keep the rest.

Same thing different method of taking the wealth. First it is one thing they take, then it is another thing they take.

You had a government that said everything was owned by them and therefore controlled by them. They owned all properties and people were allowed to maintain the living by their benevolent government (the same benevolent government that killed millions in death camps) and even allowed to continue working those business that had been theirs but were now "state" owned. So nice of them.

Now you have the second government forcing business, banks, into their government property owned (you must sign on and sell us ??), even when they do not want or need it, and giving away the money of the people who work to pay taxes to that government (remember the government doesn't have any money of their own, it is the people putting up the money to pay the bills, the representing party is only suppose to pay the bills with the money they receive, they are not doing so good).

Same thing different method of getting to the same place as the first government.

Germany long ago took what belonged to others and said it was theirs. America is now in the process of taking or looking at taking what belongs to others and saying it is theirs.

So where does it end. Today they talk of taking peoples 401K's for the "good" of the people. What good? The good that says you can no longer call this your own. You can no longer have the right to say what you want done with your money? With the price tag at least half of your goods belonging to the government when before all of it was yours? Whats the good in all of that.

So what is next. Are they going to decide that every department store needs a buyout, oh sorry bail out, even when they do not really need it. So our constitution says the government shall not own certain things, but they are fast grabbing as much as they can as fast as they can. They are building themselves a tidy little empire don't you think.

How about your simple savings account, or those CD's you invest in? Are they soon to be government owned? Oh sorry managed by the government for your own good.

Oh you have a house that you have either paid for or are one of the people who has paid your mortgage payments every month. This is all yours, right. Well, how about that, so far there is no one telling you that you have to sell your rights or is that give a portion of your rights to that property, to the government. After all you have more then someone else so you should have to "share" it. Oh wait we now own a portion of your home and you have extra bedrooms so we are going to assign these "x,y,b,c" people to live with you. After all you should share the wealth. Give you money for them being there, well you work and they don't so you should share the wealth there also.

You say you have a nice car and you only drive it to work during the day. Well, then you should be sharing that car with others who are not so lucky. They could use your car at night to run their, ah business, and then return it in the morning for your use. After all you need to do your patriotic duty and share with those who do not have as much as you. Oh they don't work, that's ok, they can use it to play at night.

I do not think I would have liked living in that first country when things started going wrong there, and I am darn sure I am not happy about this one following in the footsteps of the one that we fought to bring down so many years ago. That one wanted to take over and rule the world, seems they might just have found a different method of doing so. How better then to corrupt the largest nation in the world.

When you start to force people to "share", when the government starts to take (ah help, by force or otherwise) people/business into a plan that they say they do not need then you are one step along the road to saying this last sharing was not enough, the government does not own enough to help all those others, and next thing you know the government is giving you the privilege of continuing to work to support all they want to do, without the benefit of being able to continue helping (supporting) yourself and those who depend on you.

BEWARE folks. Watch some of the old things, not just old made for the movies, but the documentaries, and see what happened long ago. You will see that we are at the beginning steps for it to happen again.

We have been seeing one example after another, and the most recent is a failure of a party and its running person to put forth the right documents to prove legal rights to run for the position in question. A simple here it is would be the thing to do. An ignoring of that request for months on end is simply unacceptable. We have the right to know. The other party did so fast. So what's the deal here? If I am asked by my employer to show my birth record or some other documents to prove I am who I am and I have the rights I claim, I would not have the job if I refused to do so. So a future employer asked for that same proof and he is being called into question by others who say he is a quack. He is not a quack but a employer asking for the proper documentation to prove right to the job. If that cannot be done then the job needs to go to someone else.

Let me say this much more. Long ago I watched many documentaries about what happened to start World War II. I also watched those about the camps in that same country. I also required my children as they got older to watch some of them and discuss them with me. I felt they needed to be aware of the things that happened then so they could watch for those things happening here. They see it, can you? How long till everyone else sees it too? So long it will be too late? Who will come to rescue us? I think that will not happen, I think there is no one strong enough to make it so or who has the will or want to keep this country what is has been.

Such a sad state of affairs watching the beginnings of the downfall of this great country. Regardless of what others think, the few cannot support the many to the point they want supporting when the many choose to do nothing for themselves but sit around and say you owe me. At some point you break the few and then the many have nothing at all they can get. No one left to hand them the handouts they so desire. It is that one more straw that broke the camels back.

Don't' believe anything I have written, then do some research. It is all out there for you to find. Well, for now it is. Have you ever watched the old news things of the burning of the books? What doesn't fit the "states" idea of good reading is destroyed in a pile of blazing flames.

The market always rights itself. So why are our officials making it not so? There are reasons you know.
