Let’s admit it. We’ve long given up representative rule for a dictatorial government.
How do we know? By definition, dictatorial government is an autocratic form of absolute rule by leadership unrestricted by law, constitutions, or other social and political factors within the state.
U.S. law and our Constitution provided no restrictions when the IRS targeted conservatives, four Americans were murdered in Benghazi, arms traded in Fast and Furious, NSA spied on every American, along with 24 other scandals and counting.
For those who still need it spelled out, here are seven obvious signs of a dictatorial government.
One party rule. In the states, thirty seven, up from 19 states a decade ago, have Democrat governors and Democrat dominance in both legislative chambers. In Washington, Democrats dominate the executive office and Senate. In the nation, liberal Democrat ideology has long dominated academia, the media, and bleeding hearts of an eco-America that cares more about endangered ants than it does about an endangered America.
Blaming Republicans. When one party rules, the other party catches blame. Starting with Bush and now the GOP, Democrat fingers point to Republicans for all that’s wrong in the nation, despite that Democrat policy gives rise to such egregious wrongs as killer debt, cliff-hanger economy, high unemployment, growing welfare, moral decline, societal polarization, usurious taxes, and failed foreign relations.
My way or the highway. The government shutdown showed Democrat defiance, petulance, and downright nasty behaviors when politics proceeds in anything but Democrat directions. Their attitude is one of “we’ll show you” by barricading national monuments from wheel-chaired veterans, closing public cemetaries where freedom-fighting soldiers are buried, denying cancer research for kids and nutritional assistance for women. The aim was to purposely hurt as many innocent people as possible.
Refusing to negotiate. Democrats have perfected the art of no negotiation by putting up conditions of complete surrender from the other side before agreeing to talk. This starts every political conversation with a resounding stop. No one gets anywhere. No compromise is achieved. Nothing happens before anything even starts.
Executive powers. Our government has three branches that the founding fathers designed to provide checks and balance to powers over these United States. The president, however, has loaded the judicial and legislative branches with political friends and governmental agencies with cronies such that no one therein acts out against him. If and when they ever do, he simply wires around them with executive authority.
Mandatory healthcare. And then there’s Obamacare, the premier legislation that ushered in the costliest debt-producing spending program in our nation’s history. The abomination of that health insurance occurs in the lack of choice anybody has about getting it. Those who don’t will pay a penalty to that honest administrator, the IRS. Sick seniors will be rationed from adequate care. Healthy young folks will support everybody else’s illnesses. Oh, and if citizens actually want to sign up, the government sign-up website isn’t quite up to it right now.
Government dependence. Americans can find comfort in their unemployment and dwindling freedom considering the increasing control government will acquire on most aspects of their lives. Food, clothing, shelter, health care, prescriptions, medical marijuana, mortgage payments, tax credits, even some of your home heating, plug-in power for e-automobiles, and even your condoms or aborted babies will be supported by government in exchange for your vote.
When Americans leave it all up to the boys on The Hill is the moment America will recognize its dictatorial government.
