A government of Wolves

This is a commentary by Mr John Whitehead is excerpted below and chronicled in his book (A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State). It makes succinct points. It clearly describes the looters and moochers that we face today and the deadly plans they make to preserve their power. I believe he incorrectly attributes a quote to President Gerald Ford that originally came from President Thomas Jefferson in Truth #7, the truth is still true. His article starts with this from H.L.Mencken who should attribute this truth to Ayn Rand.
Cheers


“The most dangerous man, to any government, is the man who is able to think things out for himself…Almost inevitably, he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane, and intolerable.”—H.L. Mencken

Rather than looking to dystopian literature as a harbinger of what we’re experiencing at the hands of the government, Hans Christian Andersen’s fable of the Emperor’s New Clothes, is a perfect paradigm of life today in the fiefdom that is the American police state. Mr Whitehead goes on to develop ten truths that expose the self-deception of the government and the Main Stream Media that there is nothing to see here.
Truth #1: The U.S. is on the brink of bankruptcy
Truth #2: We no longer have a government that is “of the people, for the people and by the people.” What we have now is a feudal monarchy
Truth #3: Far from being a benevolent entity concerned with the well-being of its citizens, whether in matters of health, safety or security, the government is concerned with three things only: power, control and money
Truth #4: Our primary use to the government is as consumers, worker bees and bits of data to be collected, catalogued, controlled, mined for information, and sold to the highest bidder
Truth #5: Whatever problems we are grappling with in regards to illegal immigrants flooding over the borders has little to do with the fact that the borders are porous and everything to do with the government’s own questionable agenda
Truth #6: The U.S. government is preparing for massive domestic unrest, arising most likely from an economic meltdown
Truth #7: As Gerald Ford warned, “A government big enough to give you everything you want is a government big enough to take from you everything you have.” … we now find ourselves caught in a Catch-22 situation wherein the government’s so-called solutions to our problems have led to even graver problems
Truth #8: The U.S. is following the Nazi blueprint to a “t,” whether through its storm trooper-like police in the form of heavily armed government agents
Truth #9: Not only does the U.S. government perpetrate organized, systematic violence on its own citizens, especially those who challenge its authority nonviolently, in the form of SWAT team raids, militarized police, and roaming VIPR checkpoints, but it gets away with these clear violations of the Fourth Amendment because the courts grant them immunity from wrongdoing
Truth #10: the United States of America has become the new battlefield

    This is a very interesting article and if only half of it were true, I would find it very concerning. Feels like we are headed down a bad path.

      We have been on a bad path for a decade. Financially, starting with the CRA and the Fannie/Freddie fallout, to the open boarder desires of the political class and crony socialists.

    And the wolves are particularly well-fed and in progressively larger numbers. I am not a sheep, but I am not large and powerful enough to not be prey for a pack of wolves either.

      The wolves that are inciting the flood are well fed on the product of the producers labor and intellectual property. They are attempting to bring in low education and low skill labor that adds nothing to society as a whole, but will be happy to live in moderate poverty on the US side of the board in exchange for votes to the politicians that only care about their own power to coerce and control. Sorry for long run- on sentence. This will only result in turning America into the same kind of corrupt society that these " refuges are supposedly fleeing.
      Cheers
