Goodbye, America by Ben Stein

 Goodbye, America
We no longer have a Constitution.
by Ben Stein
July 18, 2021, 11:47 PM

July 2021. A month that will live in infamy. If there is such a thing as “history” in the Biden–Orwell–Soros omni-dictatorship, July 2021 will mark the month that the Constitution, the “greatest work ever thrown off by the hand and mind of man,” as Gladstone put it, was thrown into the Ministry of Truth Memory Hole.

It was put into the “History Erase” well. A bottomless pit.

In this month, actually starting with the month before, that the superpowers of the tech world, Google, YouTube, Amazon, Twitter, Facebook, and Yahoo, admitted to working with the Biden/NKVD administration to suppress free speech.

For months now, we had known that the tech powers were watching us and suppressing any dissident speech against the current administration. I have seen it up close and personal. But what was argued was that the First Amendment to the Constitution protected us only against Congress and the executive branch suppressing free speech. It did not protect us from private enterprises, even very large private enterprises like Amazon or Google or Facebook, keeping tabs on citizens and shutting them out of the internet-sphere if they expressed views contradicting the views and policies of the Biden–Harris–Big Tech Party.

True, there was one big case involving a large steel company suppressing free speech by its workers, and the Supreme Court ruled that such a big company suppressing free speech on its company properties was indeed a violation of the First Amendment. But that was rare indeed.

Now, in the year 2021, the iron curtain has come down hard. With Big Internet Tech and the White House now admittedly colluding to identify and suppress dissidents, even completely nonviolent dissidents, we no longer have a Constitution.

Just HOW confident CAN the left be that socialism is the answer to the worlds problems,when they have to lie and cheat to create a socialist system,and then create a police state to keep everybody in line?
Anyone who isn't paranoid in 2021 just isn't thinking clearly!

They probably wouldn't be very confident if it hadn't happened exactly this way in a dozen other countries already.

Ben certainly described the situation. What, if anything, can or will we do to change it?  **nononono*

I considered the Country slipping away years ago.  A guy I used to read regularly in American Spectator (because he's a very interesting writer) used to talk about his life, and his son "Tommy Devil Batboy." 

He was a wise investor and was wealthy.  Then one day, he agreed with the Democrats the Rich need to pay More in taxes, while not writing a check to the Treasury first.  I really hate that hypocrisy...demanding others pay while skating.

That talented writer was Ben Stein.

I will NOT comply.

IMHO there is nothing that can legally done to change it now.  We've gone over the edge and there is no getting back without the rule of law which we no longer have.
"I wish it need not have happened in my time," said Frodo.

"So do I," said Gandalf, "and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us."
