Instead of the traditional Republicon versus Demoliar debate which ensues for theatrics on cable news, I thought a more prudent analysis of the State of the Union after Obama’s first term is much more appropriate and realistic as to where our nation is going in the future. Thus I present the following commentary on the State of the Union for the United States of America by analyzing our Bill of Rights of the U.S. Constitution and their status as of tonight.
With the repeal of the Zorinsky Amendment to the Smith-Mundt Act of 1948, odds are it is only a matter of time when a national emergency is created or declared leaving the government an alleged no choice but to force mainstream and internet broadcaster to either abide by the dictates of the Federal Government regarding content and carrying the broadcasting arm of the Feds or be shut down. The newspapers are already in line and willing to force content on users without regard to accuracy or bias and television, be it cable or broadcast, is no longer a vast wasteland but a willing servant to the political and corporate elites. The silencing of the masses must occur via the seizure of mainstream radio broadcasting and the internet and with the current regime in power, there is little doubt that it is a matter of when, not if.
The assault on the right to keep and bear arms started in 2008 but has accelerated to a point where formerly mainstream pundits on conservative commentators have now openly stated that the threat of gun confiscation is now a real possibility. Law abiding citizens are now being called baby killers and mass murders for criminal events that have no relation to the reality of John Q. Public buying a pistol or rifle to protect their family. Wild ideas are being tossed up into the air randomly from tax credits for turning in firearms to mandatory liability insurance for purchasing firearms. There will be a conflict in the future which brings this issue to a full resolution, sadly it appears to be following the path of other authoritarian regimes throughout history.
