Ben Franklin: “A Republic, if you can keep it”

This video does an incredible job of explaining how our Government should work, and the dangers of mob rule, anarchy, and Oligarchy/Dictatorship.

It is interesting how the Left has conveniently called Fascism a movement of the Right, when the German Socialist Party was a party of Government control. This video clears this up well, explaining that Government power/control has extremes, with the American/early Roman “Republic” in the middle, granting little power to Government, and extensive power to the individual.

What we are seeing right now in our Country is an attempt to destroy the Republic. If that occurs, the Left wins. Even if there were a point of Anarchy, those on the Left feel that they will assume total power at some point. This can only occur if we dash the basis of Constitutional limits on Government power.

This is why it is so important to repeal Obamacare, as it extends Federal power to a point where it is greater than that of the States, imposing a “right” to control what people purchase. If you think that this would be the end of attempts to assume control over the electorate, guess again. It is simply a “shot across the bow” or a “Trial balloon”.

Suppose that a future Federal Government decides to make you buy solar panels, or an electric car, or says that when you “buy” energy they have the right to “monitor” your thermostat? Nothing is impossible if the Government extends it’s rights to force you to purchase what they deem as correct. Personal choice? It will be a thing of the past.

    I’m thinking this shot hit the bow, and if we don’t do some serious repairs this great ship is in grave danger.

      I agree Ed, but we will continue to work mightily to save this great Republic.
