[RE: Roberts was never a "conservative", not sure why people believe that. Furthermore, he met with Obama in private in 2009 and nobody ever learned what was talked about. This guy is complicit as everybody else in DC in the collapse of this nation. Just on a side note, how exactly is the most heavily armed society in the history of the planet getting pushed around by about 600 people?
Because a decent chunk of this country wholeheartedly supports living under a dictatorship, either because they're "useful idiots" (like liberal college students, etc.) or because they have a special interest (unions, etc.). There's another chunk that just doesn't care but seems to lean left if pushed to state their beliefs (one of my Facebook friends said "we'll see what happens and see if it's good or not" but likes all statuses that praise the healthcare monstrosity
). The last chunk, the chunk which is made up of conservatives and conservative Christians, needs to be pushed pretty far to actually stand up for themselves with force. The colonists fought and died for much less.
How is now any different from then? We're being taxed at an out-of-control level. We're beginning to see our basic freedoms taken away. How much longer before we're told which cars to buy, which food to eat, which books to read?
