"If ... our bureaucratic masters are becoming more akin to Soviet-style or Eastern European counterparts, it was rarely seen as a plus that those central schemers had wonderful intentions with their five-year plans. Such goals as 'job safety,' 'equality,' and freedom from 'discrimination,' depending on their definitions, may be good things for society, but they were never intended to be the business of the federal government."

DC has hoarded all power since the 16th ammendent and the civil rights laws of LBJ. Goldwater then like Ron Paul now have warned the nation, but the sheep for voters we have never listen.

    Diversity is just another politically correct catch word. The blending and amalgamating of cultures should be a natural process, not a forced government policy of racism. At this time in history this forced racism is designed to destroy western culture and further the cause of Globalism. Wake up America, you're country is disappearing...

    When government sets out to "help", just substitute the word "control" for "help" and you will have it. In referrence to "sheep voters", never underestimate the power of stupid people in large numbers.As H.L. Mencken said, "Nobody ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American public".

    Think: United Nations Agenda 21. Why? It includes 170 countries who apparently want a centralized WORLD Government and the US gets to pay for it to happen...THANKS TAXPAYERS! One must wonder why a sovereign nation would want an outside entity (UN) dictating to their cities, counties, states and federal government???

    We the people of the United States of America realize as the goals for the citizenship of this nation to further include job safety, equality, and job security entailing freedom from discrimination and degradation.
