Democrats today have a thinly veiled motive for what they are doing. Thinly veiled in the respect that it has become obvious to anyone not in denial that the mission of the Democrat Party is to turn our representative democracy into a totalitarian government, a police state. I have been saying this on Social Media for a long time, which inevitably gets me banned.
She said, "Would-be tyrants always take when they want to close down a democracy... Whether they are on the left or the right, they do these same ten things, and now we're at something I never thought I would see in my lifetime ... it is step 10 and that is the suspension of the rule of law and that is when you start to be a police state, and we’re here. There is no way around it."
During her interview with Tucker Carlson, she said that she has interviewed Americans of various backgrounds and political affiliations. All are in a state of "shock and horror" as "autocratic tyrants at the state, and now the national level are creating this kind of merger of corporate power and government power, which is really characteristic of totalism fascism in the 1920s. They are using that to engage in emergency orders that simply strip us of our rights; rights to property, rights to assembly, rights to worship, all the rights the Constitution guarantees."
She went on to say, "The United State's overall response to the coronavirus pandemic has been completely unprecedented." She further stated, "Lockdowns have never been done in society, and really, we are turning into a totalitarian state before everyone's eyes."
Lastly, she observed, "I really hope we wake up quickly because history also shows that it’s a small window in which people can fight back before it is too dangerous to fight back."
The 2nd Amendment states, "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed."
When the framers wrote that, they were talking to our elected government. They were telling them, those in power, that this right is not to be violated. They were telling the government that they cannot ride roughshod over this right or the others. The framers believed that some rights are regarded as too important or valuable to be interfered with -- so it spelled it out by saying "shall not be infringed." Shall not be violated. It is lost on those in government today who see themselves as above the law and subsequently beyond observing any right as indispensable.
