What will happen if they take over? It is a question you need to consider.
We grew up in a country that was free and full of opportunity. There was a bright future and we always thought the dangers of extremism was "over there" far from our shores. Now, the Democrat party, and some in the Republican party has been unquestionably infiltrated by Marxists and communists with radical agendas. While we were all distracted with our own lives, focused on our families, work, bills, relationships, hobbies etc., these radicals have been diligently working to spread their message, gain power and hone their political skills. We have taken for granted that our freedoms would remain and that our constitutional rights would protect us from an abusive tyrannical government. We didn't feel much of a need to get active and counted on others to be the guardians of our liberty.
Times, and the political situation, have changed and no longer do we have the luxury of not participating directly in the political process of our country. To say your life as you know it is in jeopardy would actually be a enormous understatement.
The reason I say this is based on the actions of communists when they take over a country; what they have done EVERY TIME when they have wrestled freedom away from the people.
Places such as China, Russia, Ukraine, Romania, Yugoslavia, Latvia, Lithuania, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, Mongolia, Cuba, North Korea, Honduras and many other countries around the globe are perfect examples; in each of these, once free countries, the end results was brutal killings of those that love freedom. People were ripped from their beds in the middle of the night and usually taken to a hole on the edge of the village and shot in the back of the head. Some were sentenced to political reeducation camps where they were beaten, abused, starved and worked to death. The death toll from communism is enormous! They are directly responsible for the deaths of countless millions in the last 50 years alone.
They literally slaughter the citizens they think are a threat to them, the activists, those who have educated themselves in an ideology outside of Marxism, those belonging to political parties or organizations (Constitution Party, Tea Party, NRA, Freedom Works etc), those who have supported (donated) candidates that are "revolutionaries" such as Ron Paul, those who have displayed bumper stickers on your car that signifies your beliefs in liberty, Christians and those who have checked out from the library or purchased material on subjects or by authors that are espousing freedom, these are but only a few ways you can be singled out and branded a "reactionary" or "counterrevolutionary".
For any that doubt that the communists would ever do such activity here on our soil is severely naive. Educating yourself on the atrocities committed by these tyrants when they get power could enlighten you. They lack common decency towards life and in fact teach violent reprisals against their ideological enemies (you and I). They even punish the family members of their political enemies because you may have influenced their thinking.
There will also be those naysayers who refuse to believe that communists are trying to take over our nation, they think when the Berlin wall fell so did communism. That they (communists) all magically agreed capitalism and democratic republic forms of government were best.
Compare the communist manifesto to the current agenda of one of the political parties in charge now and make your own determination of how similar they are.
Undoubtedly they are trying to alter the course of our nation and remove the direct power over our government you and I have that our founding fathers entrusted us with.
There are some that think so long as they have a right to own a firearm they have nothing to fear, because to them when tyranny comes they will go out in the streets and fight like in a bad Chuck Norris movie from the 80's and once again freedom will be restored. Well the reality is your shotgun, nor your deer rifle will have any effect against today's police and military equipment. Such military hardware leaves the armed citizen at a severe disadvantage. So waiting to the point where the only recourse is use of force would be suicide.
Never before in our lifetimes has our own future and those of our loved ones been in such peril. You no longer have the luxury of only being a computer chair activist. In this day and age with large databases containing a wealth of information on you from where you shop, what you buy, who you call, what websites you visit, postings you have made on the internet, what candidates you support, what organizations you are a member of etc. There is no where to hide. Such databases give an insight into our minds that has never existed before, it is every tyrants dream to have such knowledge.
Your back is against the wall, you have no choice but to get active and push back against them. You must stand up. You must move those barriers that have been hindering you from participating fully in defending freedom.
I am not saying this to scare you. It is simply the unfiltered truth and you need to hear it. Cowering will not help, it will have the same reaction as when a child cowers from a bully, the abuse gets worse. Your choice is simple, you must engage in the public discussion while you can. You must diligently work to inform others, attend hearings, meetings, canvas neighborhoods, forgo all but the most important things in your life while you do what freedom requires. Help restore this republic, help restore our future, while you still can.
