Same old story

I have been feeling as though I have been living in a bad dream for some time now, one that I just cannot seem to wake up from. It is a feeling of being in an Ayn Rand novel with all the government bailouts, it is complimented with Orwellian 1984 newspeak, such as “mandatory volunteerism” and “war is peace” with a little bit of Huxley's Brave New World floating around in the background.

After much soul searching and pondering, I have come to acknowledge that the life of liberty our ancestors enjoyed is only a fading memory in our nation today. I now serve a master, my owner, if your will.

Even as an adult with full mental capabilities, I am not allowed to own property. Don't believe me? You just try not paying your property taxes and see how long before my master/owner comes to claim payment by evicting you and selling the property to get his due.

I cannot travel without my owner/master's permission. Don't believe me? You just see how long you can drive without a driver's license or vehicle registration or now, car insurance.

I must keep track of every cent I earn and then make an accounting of it to ensure my master/owner gets his cut. Don't believe me? Don't pay your income taxes see how long before you are fined or jailed or both.

I am not allowed to purchase any substance or contraption that my owner/master deems unsafe for me. Don't believe me? You just try using an unapproved medical treatment or device to treat yourself and see how fast you are fined or jailed or both.

If I should come into an inheritance or win the lottery, my master/owner will take his cut before I get mine if possible, but he will get his, no question.

I cannot carry a concealed weapon for my or my family's protection without the permission of my master/owner. Don't believe me?Get caught doing it and you will feel the repercussions pronto. One guy was even arrested for open carrying on his own property; thankfully he fought it and won, but you try it off your property and concealed and just see what happens.

My master/owner can, at any time and for any reason, declare me an enemy and take away me away without question or trial. Don't believe me? Ask some of the so-called enemy combatants.

My master/owner can take my possessions away without cause and not have to return them if it is deemed they have been used unacceptably. Don't believe me? The war on drugs has taken away property from citizens that was declared used in drug trafficking and does not have to return it to its rightful owners, -ever.

My master/owner will not allow me to speak freely in complaint of the treatment I receive. Don't believe me? Go research “free speech zones.”

Welcome to the new world order, only it isn't really new, it's just an old idea packaged with a new pretty nomenclature, but is the same old story, ….serfdom.

All so true an so sad, HUP. Our forefathers fought to be free, and we (some of us) are begging to be slaves. What a waste of a revolution!
