America is in Worse Shape, Politically, Than 1776 or 1861

“When government fears the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.”

Some self-described scholars question whether this quote was from Thomas Jefferson, or someone else; others say it’s accurate. The quote sounds consistent with other things Jefferson wrote. Regardless, the quote (regardless of who said it) speaks the truth and is even more applicable today than at the time of the American Revolution.

Why? Because today’s federal government — the monstrosity propped up by a runaway bureaucracy, a mobster-like “Deep State,” a thoroughly dishonest and compliant media and a pretty openly weaponized and politicized “judicial” system at the federal level, along with hopelessly bought-and-sold politicians with interminable careers spanning 50, 60, 70 years in Congress — is actually WORSE than what the colonists faced in 1776, or (during a later crisis) in 1861; and arguably worse than anything Franklin, Jefferson and Madison predicted could happen if the U.S. ever went astray.

If my prediction holds true, our present government is set on a course that will perhaps even surpass the horrors of Nazi Germany, imperial Japan and Soviet Russia and its satellites. Yes, when you consider the whole cabal (Obama, Zuckerberg, Bill Gates, Fauci, Soros and son, etc.), they are that evil but — perhaps more importantly — they are legally, intellectually and philosophically almost totally unopposed. Trump is their only opposition and — from where I sit — he’s getting mowed over in a way that no leftist in media, the corporate world or government ever has, or ever will.

Today’s ruling regime (with Biden as the puppet of the moment) does not fear ANYONE — with the possible exception of Trump and his most ardent supporters. Which is why they are doing everything possible to bankrupt and/or imprison MAGA people; and if you think they won’t go further (roundups, camps and all the rest), you are, frankly, a fool.
