The words ‘fascism’ and ‘communism’ are frequently bantered about in political discussions, and their use causes many to be rather jaded. Some people hear the words, roll their eyes, and assume that the speaker is an unreasonable extremist. That’s communications. We hear a big word too often and we turn away.
Don’t turn away this time.
President Obama signed an executive order (#16303) yesterday that nationalizes the production, allocation , and distribution of resources – food, water, medicine, tools, and supplies for purposes of “national defense” at all times, including peacetime. National defense is so loosely defined that it includes practically every factor of life.
All travel, food, water, energy - every resource including your own labor – is now able to be rationed and directed by the President.
The National Defense Resources Preparedness order expands the Draft – yes, the selective service draft – to include civilians. The government can allocate labor using civilians.
You, your hands, your feet – you are now a resource to be pulled out of your present life and moved to work as a laborer for Resources Preparedness. The order gives the government control over “the movement of persons”, and over transportation systems (cars, buses, trains) “regardless of ownership”. Farms and factories are subject to national control under the National Defense Resources Preparedness order.
Friends, this is Fascism. That is not an exaggeration. That is not a dramatization. Read for yourself.
This is peacetime martial law.
This is grounds for impeachment.
This is grounds for revolution.
