They won’t come in the front door with arms. It will be a gradual thing, escalating of nickel and diming and dollaring us while gradually adding more and more regulations, to be enforced by nameless folks or your neighbors who have no say in the execution. Like the EPA just rendering new coal-fired plants illegal. Then utilities starts to rise. So you have a choice to pay your local electic company who pays your neighbor the lineman or go without electricity, and the socialists remain untouched. Their policies run up the price of food. so you can get angry with Safeway, which may end up involve the local police, or skip on food. Buy gas or walk. No difference to the socialists.
In fact, they will be sitting in DC holding press conferences complaining about how the evil Bush caused all these problems and how they just wished that there was MORE they could do to rescue you, and wouldn’t you like some food stamps? The press will keep gladhanding what a GREAT job they are doing. The taxdollars will continue to flow to other countries that wish us ill. The debt to China that we are obligated to will keep growing. The non-productive on the dole will keep increasing. Get all the bullets and ammo you want. Write nasty emails. Wave signs. Knock yourself out. And keep sending the tax dollars to DC.
Consider yourself nudged.
