Think about it: The 2016 election for president of the United States and Vladimir Putin running for the office, leading the pack. Heaven knows America is in sore need of a strong leader, and Putin fits the bill better than most of what we have here in the United States.
Don’t let a little thing like proof of citizenship, or even the sealed documents of a dubious past hold you back. They never held back Barrack Obama.
I mean, think about it – the groundwork had already been laid. The bureaucratic minions are already in place to do whatever dirty work an evil master demands – kind of like Hitler and his sadistic underlings. The willing foils we trust to run the various federal agencies have already demonstrated a cowardly willingness to suck up to power. Must I list all the abuses of power, the “Sue and Settle” corruption, the intimidation and criminalization of political dissent from the Internal Revenue Service, the Department of Justice, Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms, the National Security Administration, the Environmental Protection Agency, the Department of Interior, the Department of Energy, the Labor Relations Board, the Federal Communications Commission, the Commerce Commission, the Department of Education, and of course, our own Health and Human Services? Have I forgotten any? I’m sure I have.
Consider all that We the People tolerate. Our Constitution is already shredded and there is not one serious effort afoot to do a damned thing about it. We’re just sitting back and watching. What the hell is wrong with us – with what used to be We the People?
To paraphrase Hillary Clinton: What difference does it make if comrade Vladimir Putin is in charge? Just this week Obama had a meeting with the Pope in Rome. Obama came out of that meeting and lied about what was really discussed between the head of the Catholic Church and the head of what was once the freest nation in the world. If Obama lied about his meeting with the Pope, do you think he’d tell you what he discussed with the devil?
We the People already tolerate so much it would make not a lick of difference if Vladimir Putin were in charge. We marvel at how easily Adolf Hitler subjugated his people and how readily his lackeys carried out his dark evil. I have news for America: The Nazi model is already in place, well entrenched in our modern American political culture.
And if Putin took over America, what would We the People do about it? If the history of the German people is any indication, we will put our heads down, go to our jobs every day, raise our families as best we can, and try to not stand out, be noticed, or utter a single word of protest.
