A fearsome lesson.

One of two things will result from a second term with President Obama.

A top-heavy bureaucracy the electorate cannot touch always expands to the system’s limits of energy. Steal it from the aged, from the retired, from anyone. Especially from those we once called middle class because that’s where most of the energy originates.  – Frank Herbert

This is what I fear.  A bureaucracy that this electorate cannot touch.  We already have it and that bureaucracy is a parasitic one that gives enough of the host just enough resources in return that the host is more than willing to enslave itself for more – it’s an addiction cycle most sinister.

The second thing I fear and it is even worse, is that the parasitic/narcotic cycle mentioned above will contain just enough paralytic that the nourishing elements of the electorate that could fight back are neutralized by an addicted majority.

Let’s lay that out a bit straighter.  A bureaucracy that is top heavy and cannot be controlled by the healthiest portion of the population that is becoming a minority with increasingly few resources to resist now has a majority of the population feeding off the healthiest.  And that bureaucracy is kept in power by those that it keeps fed.  Those that are providing are no longer necessary for the cycle of power to be renewed again and again.

THIS IS CALLED SLAVERY.  IT DOES NOT CARRY CHAINS OR WHIPS BUT LAWS, FINES, LOSS OF PROPERTY AND SAVINGS, AND THREATS OF PRISON.  IT IS STILL CALLED SLAVERY.

If neither happens then it gets even worse.  The debt burden will become crushing.  An addict never stops without a bottoming out.  We will follow the path of Greece when our practices can no longer be denied.  At that point the situation will be quite dire indeed.
