  •  You're right, but ultimately tyranny will fail. (2+ / 0-)

    Like Lord Acton noted, power lust is unquenchable. So, these criminals will make things far worse, accumulating more power and abusing it more brazenly.

    They will commit such evil that the apathetic American people will stand in the streets and say "no." Like the Czechs did; though the Czechs were more alert to their problems and reacted much quicker than we will.

    But, in the end, it will be the same. The criminals will be confronted by actual opposition. And their utter impotence will become clear to all.

    With no support, they will step down. Inevitably. And we will reclaim our unalienable rights. It will be a difficult journey from here to there. But the tyrants will lose.

    "When a government violates the unalienable rights of the people, it loses its legitimacy."
