Stop the Steamroller!
~ 21 January 2014 ~
by Jack McLain, Constitution Party of Florida Vice-chairman –
What steamroller? Have you read the summary of the presidential orders past and present? They are enough to make you beg for mercy and plead with God to “deliver my people.” Just a simple summary will suffice. From President Eisenhower to George W. Bush, (ten presidents) 102 Executive Orders were issued. Nixon in six years issued only one, while George W. Bush issued 62 in eight years, the most until “president” Obama who has issued over 1000 and counting in 6 years!!
Just a summary of Obama’s Executive Orders is astounding. If they do not cover every facet of our lives from food, transportation, communications, electrical power, petroleum, airlines, railroads, relocation of populations, production, distribution, flow of money, etc. we can be certain that more orders will be forthcoming. Certainly all plans are being laid and all that is necessary to become tyrannous will be for our “benevolent” government to declare a national emergency.
America’s decent into the abyss of socialism has caused many of us to ask, “What can we do?” It seems that our federal leadership has taken every step possible to dismantle our Constitution and to take total control of the American people whenever they choose to do so.
It would seem that the majority of our people have been so indoctrinated as to have little to no understanding of the times, of our Constitution, of socialism and communism, and of the direction we are surely heading.
Despite the fact that socialism has been a total failure in foreign countries for centuries, some actually believe that it will be successful here and that, as America is “converted,” it will surely be a success worldwide as we join other decayed nations in a fabulous Utopia. Dream on!
Let me present a challenge to all who can read this message. If you do nothing else to help understand the true nature of socialism and the extent to which it can go, beg, borrow, or buy a copy of George Orwell’s novel entitled, 1984. If you have never read it, do so not for entertainment, but for real enlightenment. I promise you that it will be a great surprise indeed!
You’ve heard it said, “A little socialism is good.” Oh, you really think the federal government should be your “Big Brother,” to feed, clothe, protect, watch, transport, direct, limit, control, and heal you? Do you really believe that “B.B” should tell you what you can think and believe—what you can eat and drink—who and when you can worship—that you cannot protect yourself—whether or not you can have children and that you cannot raise them by yourself under God’s direction?
Do you really believe that a “little socialism” would be restrained, that man is basically good, that government is benevolent, that government officials would never impose total control over people they pretend to care for so fondly? Now while most of my readers understand these matters, we are seeking to reach out to those who drift along as if only to wait for the next election when, seemingly, they believe all will be different because, “I voted for the lesser of two evils.” Little do they realize that the plan of the socialists and communists is to take total control just as soon as they are ready, election or no election!
“Whatever their names—Fascism, Socialism, or Communism—they have this common result: wherever these systems have been imposed tyranny has been erected, government by the people abolished.” – Herbert Hoover.
The steamroller is fueled, ready, and rolling. We the people are the only ones that can stop it! What can we do? Sometimes it seems hopeless, that our country is being consigned to the scrapheap of history. But if we love our country and the wonderful benefits and freedoms that we have enjoyed, we cannot give up—working, preaching, praying—that others will join us in a movement that will grow and swell to halt the steamroller. An upheaval must take place in America. It must commence with patriots!
Thomas Jefferson stated, “Does the government fear us? Or do we fear the government? When the people fear the government, tyranny has found victory. The federal government is our servant, not our master!” “When injustice becomes law…resistance becomes duty!”
What then can a concerned American do? We must be awake. We must forsake some pleasures, roll up our sleeves, and take a stand. We must claim our freedoms at every opportunity—voice our beliefs to friends, relatives, associates; write letters and e-mails to lawmakers and influential people; attend meetings of folks who are dedicated to saving our country (let your voice be heard); stand up for life, liberty, and property rights; protect our gun rights; encourage and support efforts to impeach an impostor president, and proclaim the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ toward the salvation of souls in these very “last days.”
Certainly every patriot should be associated with others of like understanding. There are an abundance of organizations in this battle to save America. Their leaders’ statements should convince us that the need is urgent. Nearly every day we receive calls from folks who now realize that time is short for America unless we all join in this battle. We are more effective indeed when we are working as a team in this momentous effort. The Constitution Party team is dedicated to returning our Republic to limited constitutional government, but we need YOU!
“The grave danger of socialism is the fact that, as America drifts from its constitutional moorings, we drift more and more into the hands of totalitarian government. A people who have lost all rights to property, health, education, finances, speech, assembly, gun protection, protection in court, and so on, have then surrendered their God-ordained freedoms to an all-powerful state ruler.” (Which Way America?, 2012, chap. 18, “The Socialist Myth,” Jack McLain, p. 93-94)—available through the author firstname.lastname@example.org at discounted price.
