Welcome back to Balladeer’s Blog, the only site on the web that genuinely criticizes both Liberals and Conservatives equally. As always I’m coming to you from an America whose government was hijacked long ago by those rival gangs of white collar criminals called the Democratic and Republican Parties. Neither of those organizations are mentioned in the Constitution but you can’t realistically run for dogcatcher in this country without having to deal with the party apparatus of one of those groups because of the stranglehold they have on our electoral system.
Both Liberals and Conservatives love to exploit public hysteria to enact policies that are grotesque violations of our constitutional rights and that they could never get away with without the panic that results in people embracing the loss of liberty.
The Conservatives did this after Muslim terrorists committed the 9-11 attacks. In the hysteria that followed those flukish events the public practically DEMANDED that the Bush administration strip away some of our fundamental freedoms and usher in many policies of a police state. Conspiracy kooks drastically overstated the harm done which unfortunately helped make all legitimate dissent seem lacking in credibility.
Similar hysteria has followed the recent school shootings and in the ongoing panic the public is practically DEMANDING that the Obama administration strip away even more fundamental freedoms. People who try to stay calm are accused of “not caring about the victims” of the shootings and of “not wanting to save lives” just like the Bush administration accused all critics of their “Homeland Security” tactics of “not caring about the victims” and of “not wanting to save lives”. To quote that old Benjamin Franklin saying “Those who would give up some of their liberty in exchange for a little temporary safety deserve NEITHER liberty NOR safety.”
Or if you prefer Camus we could quote from The Plague and go down the familiar path of pointing out that we’ll all have to go on living under the Plague Rules long after the “plague” itself subsides. Obama has perpetuated Bush’s wiretap policies and other police state tactics and kept Gitmo open. When Obama’s replacement is in office they likely will perpetuate whatever anti-2nd amendment policies he’s able to enact.
For people from around the world observing all this ask yourselves this: Given how so many of you look askance at the way the American government recklessly throws its weight around would YOU want that same government to be the sole arbiter regarding who can or cannot own guns? The periodic mass slayings mostly involve guns obtained ILLEGALLY anyway, so the notion that Obama’s executive orders would save lives is purely a myth. I’ve never owned a gun in my life but I’m thinking of buying one just to spite the current public hysteria.
