All the pieces have fallen in place. The role of government in the United States has been categorically redefined. The ideological assault on the greatest free society to ever exist began over a hundred years ago as the Progressive left seized opportunity after opportunity, like hungry lions hovering over injured prey.
The Great Depression brought the New Deal. Soon Americans had social security, the ultimate Trojan horse, and the Nation's first “safety net”. People were suffering. Times were hard. And the citizens allowed the fox in the hen house, occupying a throne that has never been relinquished. The concept that Government had a responsibility and obligation, not as a regulator and administrator overseeing a free society, but as a provider to the American people, was established.
The year is 2042. Progressives have ruled the United States for over a generation. Constitutional amendments have expanded and extended the role of government into every citizen's orifice. The implementation of new Federal initiatives in the Northern States was met with little resistance as citizens relinquished rights and freedoms, once considered inalienable and irrevocable. The Southern States will be next.
