First of all, I don't expect my opinion to be popular. I am only putting it out because I feel it is important for all of us to give it some thought. I am positive their are others who have had this go through their mind at one time or another.
As many of us realize, the United States is not somehow immune to tyrrany. That although God has blessed us so far, we are only a couple of steps away from what we have watched and read about around the world.
As our government has grown larger, it has also grown farther and farther away from the individual.
As much as we would love to think that the constitution's "rules" regarding our government still stand, the fact is, we have little say so anymore in what our government does or decides.
Even when the government makes decisions that are totally distressful to the majority of us (Obamacare), there is little we can do about it (be honest).
So, how many steps are we away from losing all control?
Unlike a lot of the conspiracy theorist's out there, I do not believe in the New World Order. But, I do believe that power has gotten into the head of our government. Democrat or Republican, both sides.
Our constitution states; For the people, by the people. It is no longer that way. Sorry. Our founding fathers are rolling over in their collective graves.
My post is not about what happened in Watertown. I am going back and forth in my mind regarding how I feel about what happened there with regards to the overwhelming force. There are many out there in the WWW who feel that the government overstepped it's ground.
I am merely using it as an example of what could happen.
After seeing the pictures and videos of Watertown after the Boston bombing, I got to wondering.
You can bet your bottom dollar the people in power have a place to go. They will be protected in the case of war.
But, not since the end of the cold war, have we been "instructed" as to what to do in case of attack. Do you know where your nearest bomb shelter is?
When is the last time you saw a public service message explaining where to go?
Where would you go if bombs started raining down?
