A quick course in the degradation of constitutional government.

We are far from the republic Franklin and his fellow patriots gave us, and as Franklin foreshadowed, we were unable to keep it. As the fledgling republic devolved into a mob democracy, with the Federal government grabbing more power during the Civil War, the banking cabal seizing control of the nation’s finances in 1913 with the creation from Jekyll Island, the growth of the welfare state with FDR and LBJ doing the most damage, the metastasis of the military industrial complex, the elimination of privacy after the Patriot Act surveillance state execution, and now the final countdown to Armageddon as the state, media conglomerates, Wall Street criminals, mega-corporations, and billionaire oligarchs use this purposefully over-hyped flu pandemic to consolidate their power, wealth and control over a dumbed down, iGadget addicted, fearful, easily manipulated, compliant populace.[1]
You've seen the maps you see in parks where there's a pointer and "You are here." Well, here we are on the cusp of losing any semblance of prosperity, liberty, or a coherent culture.

Our political elites have changed a bit over the last couple of centuries but never did they with malice aforethought intend, as this rotten bunch do, the destruction of our grand experiment in self government. Nameless strangers, jumped-up, soulless billionaires, tax-exempt foundations, hate-filled minorities and foreigners, communist street thugs right out of Weimar Germany, and vicious leftists in the universities, press, and government at every level are within one election of ending it all and implementing their lunatic, deadly agenda of anarchy and repression in the name of Utopia. They loathe constitutional government and Western (white) civilization but will soon beg for it all to return after the "right sort" of people have their way for a few months.

The only thing that gives me any hope is that whoever prevails in the coming election will in truth be no "winner" as 100+ years of monetary, fiscal, welfare state, judicial, and imperial stupidity and arrogance flower in resplendent color. Human stupidity and malevolence got us into this mess but the metasticized stupidity and malevolence will not get us out of it. Here comes Solzhenitsyn's "pitiless crowbar of events."
