First they came for the auto dealers

Most of us have heard the poem:

In Germany they first came for the Communists,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist.

Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew.

Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Catholics,
and I didn't speak up because I was a Protestant.

Then they came for me — and by that time no one was left to speak up.

but I doubt that any of us ever dreamed that it could become reality (again), especially in the United States of America. Incredibly, it's looking ever more likely. Thanks to bloggers, because the press is long since bought and paid for by the left, indicators of a real conspiracy to shut down Republicans in the Chrysler bankruptcy is emerging. There are dozens of articles out there with all the here, or here, or here, or here.

The jury is still out on the final result of all this citizen detective work - there are 3,200 Chrysler dealers, and each must be checked by name against several years of FEC records to track donations, but the early indications absolutely point to vastly more Republican dealerships being shut down than Democratic. This may be merely because there are vastly more Republican than Democratic dealerships...the bloggers toil on, determined to get the details and get them right. But if this proves to be true, it is the begining of the end of freedom in this nation. We have already seen Zero fire a CEO - why should we be surprised if he chooses which dealerships live and die based on purely political reasons?

We are gaining czars as quickly as we are losing jobs. We have a car czar, a climate czar, a tech czar, an intelligence czar, and an energy czar, to name just a few. Now we have a cyber czar who will have the power to shut down the internet in case of threats. The internet is our only hope of communicating with like-minded patriots to fight this administration, and they know it, so they seek to control it, as they seek to control every other aspect of our lives. Even the use of the word "czar" should send a few chills down our collective spine, but no one seems to even notice. Have we grown so complacent that we will simply lay down and allow a few power hungry fascists to destroy everything that millions of our military have given their lives to preserve, without so much as a struggle?

I lack the wisdom to know when we will reach the point of no return - the point at which it will no longer be possible to return this nation to the one founded 233 years ago - but I feel that it is close, far too close for comfort. Federal obligations now amount to an astronomical $546,668 per household. This is real money we're talking about, not something that's just going to go away. We, by allowing our un-representing representatives to run up this debt, are on the hook for it...someday the bill will come due. How much more are we willing to give up? Do we really have to reach the point where we more closely resemble Zimbabwe than the United States of old? What will it take to convince all the brain-dead Obamazombies that this cannot continue?
