As we have seen all throughout human history, those that would like to impose tyranny upon a nation need at least a certain percentage of the population to go along with their plans. It doesn’t even have to be a majority.
All that is required is enough “true believers” to enforce the tyrannical dictates of the elite. Many had assumed that the United States would always be immune from such a scenario because our Constitution guarantees certain liberties and freedoms. Unfortunately, things have dramatically changed in recent years. Today, a surprisingly large percentage of the U.S. population is openly embracing authoritarianism, and that should deeply alarm all of us.
If you think that I am exaggerating, let’s take a look at some of the results of a recent Heartland Institute and Rasmussen Reports national survey. I will pull certain lines from their report and put them in bold, and then I will follow with my own thoughts…
“48% of voters favor President Joe Biden’s plan to impose a COVID-19 vaccine mandate on the employees of large companies and government agencies”
All of the other results we will look at are specifically for Democratic voters, but this figure is for U.S. voters as a whole.
It should deeply grieve all of us to see that nearly half the country actually supports Joe Biden’s unconstitutional vaccine mandates.
Have we really fallen this far as a nation?
Thankfully the Supreme Court just struck down Biden’s national OSHA mandate, but more mandates are inevitably coming on the state level.
“Fifty-nine percent (59%) of Democratic voters would favor a government policy requiring that citizens remain confined to their homes at all times, except for emergencies, if they refuse to get a COVID-19 vaccine”
Are you kidding me?
A solid majority of all Democrats would like to lock the unvaccinated in their own homes except for “emergencies”.
And since Dr. Fauci just admitted that COVID will be with us forever, such a measure would theoretically be implemented on an indefinite basis.
That is extremely chilling.
“Nearly half (48%) of Democratic voters think federal and state governments should be able to fine or imprison individuals who publicly question the efficacy of the existing COVID-19 vaccines on social media, television, radio, or in online or digital publications”
This is another sign that free speech is almost completely dead in our country.
If we can’t even ask questions, what kind of society are we going to have?
The U.S. Constitution is supposed to forbid such government restrictions on speech, but apparently nearly half of all Democrats don’t believe in the Bill of Rights anymore.
“Forty-five percent (45%) of Democrats would favor governments requiring citizens to temporarily live in designated facilities or locations if they refuse to get a COVID-19 vaccine”
Yes, you read that correctly.
They really do want to put the unvaccinated in camps.
I am having difficulty finding the words to describe how evil this is.
Sadly, this isn’t just a fringe group of Democrats we are talking about.
Nearly half of the entire party would support doing such a thing, and that says a lot about where we are as a society today.
“Twenty-nine percent (29%) of Democratic voters would support temporarily removing parents’ custody of their children if parents refuse to take the COVID-19 vaccine”
Nearly a third of all Democrats would actually support this?
I honestly do not know how people can be this evil.
This is yet another sign that people need to be moving out of blue states while they still can.
Of course it isn’t just Democrats that are pushing for tyrannical measures.
Utah is supposed to be “deeply red”, but the editorial board of the largest newspaper in the entire state is openly calling for the unvaccinated to be strictly confined to their own homes…
The editorial board of Utah’s largest newspaper – the Salt Lake Tribune – which is controlled by the family of former Governor Jon Huntsman Jr., has called for the deployment of the National Guard “to ensure that people without proof of vaccination would not be allowed, well, anywhere.”
The draconian measure was suggested in a Saturday op-ed titled “Utah leaders have surrendered to COVID pandemic,” suggesting that elected officials have failed to mandate the vaccine for all citizens, and that if Utah was a “civilized place” Governor Spencer Cox (R) would treat the unvaccinated (and no mention of the naturally immune) as lepers with severe lockdown mandates.
Jon Huntsman is a Republican that ran for president.
And his newspaper is pushing for this type of authoritarian measure?
What in the world is happening to us?
Our freedoms and liberties are under unprecedented assault, and once they are gone it will be exceedingly difficult to ever get them back.
For years, I have been warning about the “Big Brother” police state control grid that is being constructed all around us, and of course, that process has only accelerated during this pandemic.
At this point, new authoritarian measures are being implemented on an almost constant basis. For example, I just learned that the Biden administration has just set up a system for federal workers to track all “unvaccinated employees who ask for religious exemptions”…
According to a report by the Daily Signal, the Pretrial Services Agency for the District of Columbia, an independent federal agency designed to aid Washington D.C. courts, created the “Employee Religious Exception Request Information System” to track unvaccinated employees who ask for religious exemptions from President Joe Biden’s federal COVID-19 shot mandate.
The Federal Register describes the new system as the best way to keep track of “personal religious information” that is collected “in the context of a public health emergency or similar health and safety incident, such as a pandemic, epidemic, natural disaster or national or regional emergency and/or any other lawful collection of employee information or data that is necessary to ensure a safe and healthy environment for individuals.” Those with concerns about the system only have until Feb. 10 to offer any public comments.
It is very wrong for the Biden administration to do such a thing, but they are going to do it anyway.
In other articles, I have documented countless other ways that they are violating our fundamental rights.
Fortunately, the courts are slowing them down, but they aren’t going to give up.
The good news is that at least we haven’t descended into the sort of dystopian tyranny that we are now seeing in Australia, New Zealand, Germany, France, Austria, Italy, China, and elsewhere.
But if the authoritarian wing of the Democratic Party has its way, we will eventually get there.
This is such a dangerous time in our history because we really are on the verge of losing all of the liberties and freedoms that previous generations of Americans worked so hard to win for us.

As illustrated by the asinine behavior of Covid-cult-tyrants in Australia, exemplified by the ousting of Djokovic (defending Australian open champion), stomping on citizens’ individual rights, and other draconian behavior. American Demonrats want the same, and worse, for citizens here. In what other context can an “ID” requirement for voting be characterized as wrong?
My daughter-in-laws brother got vaccinated even though I warned them repeatedly. Afterwards his under 1 year old son got meningitis. I think the dad somehow infected the child.
Many, maybe most, people want authoritarian leadership because they don’t want actual freedom.
This is because freedom means making your own decisions and this means you, yourself, are responsible for whatever comes your way as a result.
Tyrannical and authoritarian leadership lets you deny responsibility for your own problems and troubles even though they are the result of your own choices.
(It’s like people blaming the Jews for everything that is wrong in the world, but we all know in our hearts that it’s really the French that are behind causing it.)

“Cognitive liberty, or the “right to mental self-determination”, is the freedom of an individual to control their own mental processes, cognition, and consciousness. It has been argued to be both an extension of, and the principle underlying, the right to freedom of thought.”

Thou shalt not prevent thy fellow man from altering his own consciousness.
We are a hive, herd, social or swarm specie, etc. in which the 99% of drones do not have any capacity for executive function.
Hittler said “how fortunate for politicians most people don’t think”. Same goes for today. I see people today from all walks of life, from educated professionals to ditch diggers who are just like that. They are trained and learned enough to do their jobs and function in society, but have overall poor thinking and discerning skills.
There are a number of reasons why this is the case. Public education is cranking out students who are indoctrinated and conditioned more than educated. Then there are the people who don’t want to think (they would literally rather die than think). Another reason is many of today’s young people have been rendered passive (all individualism and/or self assertiveness has been conditioned out) and don’t care about their rights. They just want big brother to have the responsibilities and make the decisions (all with strings attached of course). Many working people have no time to stay informed, they are constantly trying to keep their head above water so they cannot stay on top of the issues or able to fully assert themselves. But there’s also a lot of people who don’t care about freedoms and rights so long as they are comfortable. And there are other reasons, but all the reasons add up to the majority of people.
The processed food today and chemicals in the environment are causing males today to produce up to 80% less testosterone than their grandfathers, diminishing both natural aggression, sex drive, and desire for relationships. Even average sperm counts in American men are only one-third of just 50 years ago. When adding in today’s politically correct environment it’s no wonder men don’t date like they use to, and that white marriages and white birth rates are plummeting.
If I was a dictator I would want a country full of people just like there is now, passive and easy to control, gullible and easy to propagandize, easily manipulated, easy to intimidate, easily regimented.
Wikipedia is a left-leaning source of information.
This USA experiment in self governance provides a structure that allows me to fail or succeed based on my own actions (For this comment I am conveniently forgetting all those actions by an overbearing govt. that prevent my self-determination). This is the reason the great students of govt. structure (American Founders) chose a REPUBLIC. A Democracy-structure was rejected due to huge concern of the “Tyranny of the Majority” (Think 2 wolves & a sheep vote on “what’s for dinner”.)
In-depth societal study reveals humans are not born into specialized roles (queen, drones, workers, etc.) like bees and other hive species. Neither do free men follow the biggest brute like we might have in “caveman” times – technological advancement, like my 357 Magnum, means that behavior is NOT REQUIRED.
I don’t intend to criminally impose my will upon intelligent people, and I do draw from right-leaning sources of knowledge.
Someone beneath objectivity has nothing left to reason-with. You would tell them something about farming or the value of the dollar. It’s not in their mental dictionary. As a matter of predestination or foreordainment — if not royal jelly — someone cannot be taught innate, common sense.
Libertarians have yet to raise these people up to the level of basic reasoning —

Did you grow it, it all by yourself? How many complicit people were required from the iron mine to point of sale?

The Mark Dice videos are scary & revealing. How in the world did these folks survive into early adulthood with that level of ignorance. I suspect a pampered society has sheltered them from the realities of life that hold CONSEQUENCES for ignorance.
The school of hard knocks will NOT be fun for those folks.
Speaking of Mark Dice videos, I watched a recent one where he was asking White Californians if they agreed with the idea of paying ‘reparations’ to blacks, and then when they said yes (the overwhelming majority said yes), he asked them how much per month did they think would be fair. The estimates ran from about $1500 to $3000 per month.
Then, Dice asked them if they could pull out their wallets and take $20 or $50 dollars out and then give it to the first black they saw walking by. Every single one of those White idiots started blurting out lame excuses why they couldn’t do that.
This was a brilliant illustration of just how mentally screwed up and hypocritical the typical liberal brain is – these libtards LOVE to virtue signal whenever the opportunity presents itself, and they get some kind of emotional ‘feel good rush’ out of pretending as if they are so compassionate and generous and full of sympathy and white guilt. But, when they are backed into a corner and asked to put THEIR OWN money where their mouth is, all of a sudden, they start finding excuses that let them weasel out.
Liberals love to SPEND other people’s money. So, these sickening White guilt ridden libtards who support ‘reparations’ for blacks seem to think that the money to pay for them can somehow be magically created out of thin air – or stolen from someone else’s paycheck, but not out of their paychecks.
Totally agree. Snowflakes are a huge part of the problem.
Regarding your comment on “my 357 magnum”. Those of us that embrace individual rights understand that PROPERTY RIGHTS are significant among those rights. Your suggestion that folks involved with building that product are “complicit” (your description) suggests you have a problem with the tool & inanimate object being discussed. That is an irrational view of property rights.
T said, ” I watched a recent one where he was asking White Californians if they agreed with the idea of paying ‘reparations’ to blacks…”
It was called Reconstruction, courtesy of the Party of Lincoln.
CR said, “How in the world did these folks survive into early adulthood with that level of ignorance…Your suggestion that folks involved with building that product are “complicit” (your description) suggests you have a problem with the tool & inanimate object being discussed.”
Why should *they have the power over life and death, though.
Libertarianism is an assumption that the congenital idiot and reprobate have natural rights, that the rights of the civilized man depend on the rights of the savage.
Regarding your question “Why should they have power over life & death?” Bringing logic to the table, why should the criminal have the only power over life & death? The example of a 98 yo widow defending herself with a firearm against a 6’4″and 270 pound assailant should be the only example required for rational minds.
The comment about Reconstruction is disengenuous. The discussion about modern reparations by today’s taxpayers that had nothing to do with atrocities occurring over 100 years ago is a different subject that Reconstruction & citizens of the 1800s.
Last sentence “…….. that…….” should be “than”. Thanks a lot spellcheck (sic).
BOYCOTT CARHARTT! Ceo installs vax mandate. Info on the article above this one (when it passes moderation).
I boycotted them YEARS ago when they shipped their shit from Mexico and China and STILL charged like they were made here!!! Pluck these corps buy the cheapest in sale it all comes out of the same Commie factory!!
Those who are for the lockdowns, and removing childen from the unvaxxed are are the walking dead with the most amount of jabs. Wait until next year and take the survey……………….
Of course, this is all based on the assumption that these polls are not biased. Given the political climate and what is happening today (as well as not so long ago), should any poll be accepted at face value without even some skepticism and verification?
Hmm, I got the shots ( 3 ) just to shut my son and daughter in law up, as they both work in the health care industry . If I hadn’t, then maybe I could have or would have been able to with my wife of 48 yrs again, sooner than later. She passed away of cancer 4 1/2 years ago
“Polls are for dogs to Piss on” pee-air Turd-oh!
The brainwashing and dumbing down of the USA population has been on going for YEARS and only a few of us could see it. Now there are more seeing it but the 75% who don’t are lost to saving this country and only offer resources to the very scum orchestrating this.
The part I still don’t understand is Why vaccinated people are soooo afraid of anyone who is NOT vaccinated??? Do they not understand what vaccinated actually means?? Are they so dumb they don’t know what vaccine IMMUNITY means?? What is the deal with these people?? My next door neighbor was vaxxed a year ago. I asked him if he was afraid of talking to me and he said no, he was not afraid of anyone, Because he was immune due to vaccination. At least that makes sense even if it’s not true.

They (sheeple) tend to believe most anything put out by MSM.
But, this is but one explanation:
“A Shockingly High Percentage Of The U.S. Population Actually Wants An Authoritarian Fascist MAGA Dictatorship”
There, fixed it.
We all voted trolls should go back to china Ace!
Was that supposed to make sense? It seems as though you’re not a native English speaker. This should help. https://www.rosettastone.com/
Nonsense poll no different than polls claiming Trump would lose in 2016.
Polling companies have been vetting their respondent pools of politically incorrect respondents for years.
Every poll now is purely propaganda.
The good old human race, never learns. None of us is going to get out of here alive. So piss off with your wars, hatreds, jealousy and greed.
