The USA is sleepwalking to totalitarianism.

Let there be no mistake about that. If this is allowed to stand, imagine the state of the nation 1 year or 3 years from now.

One step at a time, to see what he can get away with, each step treading heavier than the last, until he stands on everyone’s face, no one daring to question anything he does…ever. Already the “family” is being lined up to inherit the crown of ultimate authority, with no heed paid to the laws and traditions of political office.

One of the first steps of the dictator is to get rid of anyone in disagreement.

This is happening time and again. It makes the rest afraid for their jobs. No one of any real worth will risk the taint of close association, so the result will be mediocrity fostering mediocrity in a succession of blandness and acquiesence.

So he surrounds himself with sycophants who nod obediently. He wants nothing more from them as the road to unheeded disaster unfolds.

They know that if the despot’s head rolls their heads roll too, so it is in their interests to keep his head where it is. To that end they will agree with anything and do anything.

Remember Hitler did not run his regime alone, he had lots of willing helpers. You will see them hovering in the background when the despot speaks.

If you want to scare yourself, watch this video:

It is your future if you let it happen. It will scare you, and probably make you weep. It is meant to. Circulate it to others. It shows how the gullible are being led into a right wing death trap.

The situation reaches a point of no return, where all are afraid to stand and utter the word “no”. His personal genie is out of the bottle, he is convinced that no one has the power to force it back in.

Soon no one will have that power.

This book might explain why and where we’re at right now:

Whether we like it or not, the US government situation affects the rest of the world…if you slip into dictatorship, others will follow suit. A year down the line, with everyone dependent on his whims, no one will be safe. The military will fall into line, because the government pays their wages, and the generals will be part of the circle of obedient agreement.
