I once read in some book, fiction, about a corrupt, "cockroach" infested, country......and it might even have been the U.S. at sometime in the future, I just can't remember. The elected President and the elected Congress were involved in an attempt to subvert the Constitution of that country into a new declaration of Marxist Socialism, political control. The taxpayers were getting tax bills that increased by 100%, 500%, or more, and rules and regulations were added daily that made it almost impossible for any non government worker to carry on business without some type of extreme permit from the government. It seems that the education system of the country had been so tilted towards socialism that the poor did not have a rational understanding of why they were unemployed, and because of this, had little prospect of accumulating wealth. The government blamed the bad economic situation on the "Rich", and vowed to increase taxes on the rich so that the poor could be exempt from taxes, and would be a "voting" force for government. The poor loved the new plan.......all the while not understanding that there is no such thing as a "Free Lunch". The poor then went on a rampage, sponsored, of course, by the government, and looted and burned the businesses of the so called "Rich", but at no time did these ignorant, poor, persons make the connection that the government workers were "Rich". Then some Patriots gathered together and decided that they would turn the corruption around, and they vowed to reinstall the countries Constitution to its place of prominence. They knew that their small force was no match for the government organized police, who were also corrupt because of their high pay, and the generous pensions they received, so they would need to resort to tactics that would scare government into submission. And at the same time, the national army, the force that was granted, by the Constitution, the power to always uphold that very Constitution, was not only corrupt at the top, but it was full of enlisted people who followed orders without thinking. So this Patriotic group formed, "The Christian Soldiers", and they devised a plan to kidnap upper level government administrators, one at a time, as they walked down the public streets. They would catch them and kill them, leaving behind a note that said something like this:
This Corrupt Government Worker Has Been Tried And Executed By The Christian Soldiers. This Shall Continue Until The Constitution Is Once Again The Law Of The Land.
"Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice. And moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue.
I can't, for the life of me, remember all the details, or even the name of the book, but in the end, the Constitution was restored after "The Christian Soldiers" posted more than 500 of these notices on the dead bodies of corrupt government workers. I hope that nothing like this ever happens in America, and although I am not a believer in banning books because of their content, maybe this book should be banned just in case some "copycats" are out there reading it. I implore President Obama to ban this book immediately, as it poses a possible security risk to his government, and for this reason I also ask President Obama to repeal the First Amendment on the grounds that children should not be exposed to ideas of violence by vigilantes....... But as I think more deeply about this book, maybe it was not a book....maybe it was just a bad dream. "Can't we all just get along?" Rodney King
