“As I look at America today, I am not afraid to say that I am afraid.”—Bertram Gross, Friendly Fascism: The New Face of Power in AmericaThese are dangerous times.

Mind you, when I say that these are dangerous times, it is not because of violent crime, which remains at an all-time low, or because of terrorism, which is statistically rare, or because our borders are being invaded by armies, which data reports from the Department of Homeland Security refute.

No, the real danger that we face comes from none other than the U.S. government and the powers it has granted to its standing army to steal, cheat, harass, detain, brutalize, terrorize, torture and kill.

The danger “we the people” face comes from masked invaders on the government payroll who crash through our doors in the dark of night, shoot our dogs, and terrorize our families.

This danger comes from militarized henchmen on the government payroll who demand absolute obedience, instill abject fear, and shoot first and ask questions later.

This danger comes from power-hungry bureaucrats on the government payroll who have little to no understanding of their constitutional limits.

This danger comes from greedy politicians and corporations for whom profit trumps principle.

You want to know about the state of our union? It’s downright scary.

We were told that Mr. Obama wrote this himself, though we cannot be certain. Somehow we doubt that Valerie Jarrett will permit much of this to reach 10-15-2013-5-26-05-PMthe President’s TelePrompTer.

“My Americans, my Members, my Press, my guests, welcome to the halls of my Congress. With two short years remaining in what many of you think is my last term as president, there is much yet for me to accomplish. After winning in 2008, I promised to fundamentally transform the nation. I am well on my way, but I am not yet there. FDR, who was the most successful nation-transformer before me, had four terms and a compliant Congress. Now that those of you sitting on the right side of the aisle nominally control Congress, my task is harder, and may require an additional term or two as president. The Office of Legal Counsel and the Attorney General are looking into ways we can make that happen. More
