Where's the clickbox for "It already has"?

From the responses in the thread, it looks like most posters wold have clicked that one if it hadn't been so carefully omitted.

Another poll designed to fake a predestined conclusion.

that proves that the government will turn tyrannical. it will be the liberals that turn it that way.


you will be happy when it happens because you will believe the people your liberal government suppresses will be in your opinion evil conservatives.

I say no because I think the country breaks apart in the next 100 years before, what we now know as the federal govt, gets that far gone

LOL, ummm OK. The US government is one of the dirtiest, sleaziest, corrupt, power and money grubbing and oppressive governments on Earth. It's been really bad since the Civil War. During the latter part of the 19th century and well into the 20th DC actively helped big money industries to squash people an exert power.


Right down to lending them the Army. Things started changing in the 40s and 50s and they are less overt with the corruption and oppression but it's still there. How "public land" (BLM) is managed is a prime example. Mining interests still have a big stake in that just like in the 19th century an huge municipalities like LA and Vegas do as well.


Politicians like Harry Reid have been stealing water rights regularly (and profitably) for the latter and the mining interests both foreign and domestic grace their palms as well. There is a reason that these multi billionaires spend billions to get elected to an office that only pays a couple hundred grand in a year. And it's not a "desire to serve the people."

But the plain Jane and Joe in the US mostly comes up against US regulations. You know, income taxes, pollution of public water ways by farm run off, burning your trash, what kind of gasoline you can buy at the pump, etc.


So for most citizens, the regulations are what kills you. The various agencies are free to implement laws passed by Congress by making up regulations. Before the regulations are implemented, they are published in the Federal Register with a period allowed for public comment.


How many of you out there have read the Federal Register? Or even seen one? Or sent in your comments?


Take it from a former bureaucrat, regulations are carefully worded to be unintelligible and to give the agency the high ground. And don't get me started on the instances where the bureaucrats are just making stuff up, or slow walk your application or appeal.


So yes, the government IS tyrannical.

I voted that I don't know but it sure seems we're heading that way with all these racist, discrimination diatribes being thrown at us.

Making people walk on eggshells. Progressives don't even hesitate to turn on themselves.
They are bullies, plain and simple but all this "social justice" crap has driven people into feared silence.

Every single year it becomes my tyrannical.

President Trump was our last chance to stop it but not even a rogue outsider is enough to drain the swamp and right the ship.

Look at what our legislatures do, their entire existence is to write laws. New laws. They spend practically zero time trying to figure out how to reduce or eliminate laws and Grant us more freedom. It's all about more control. Governments don't willfully shrink on their own, the grow expand and consolidate power.

Look at the rise of tech Giants like Google and Facebook coupled with surveillance programs (the NSA prisim program etc..) they know, monitor and store everything we do.

The tech Giants are already caught trying to influence public opinion and sway elections for their favored candidates on the left. It's just a matter of time until a strong socialist is in power and creates a technocracy similar to china.

We are in serious trouble. We're not far off from 1984.

One more choice is needed...it already has. It began the steep dive into tyranny around 1913. Every year since then has gotten incrementally worse..America is no longer a free Republic!
