AS US MOVES TOWARDS SOVIET-STYLE TOTALITARIANISM, A DEEP RESERVOIR OF LATENT RESISTANCE SIMMERS

Some have compared the current path the US is headed down with the Soviet Bloc experience. However, there are some differences.
In the US, we’ve seen a multi-decade long process of gutting the middle class and propagandizing people to the point of turning much of the nation into a zombified state. However, there are at least 20 million Ron Paul supporters in the US, and while not every person down to the man in that movement are entirely aware of what’s going on, compare those numbers to resistance pockets and periods of any resistance under Soviet rule you care to examine.
I contend there’s a deeper reservoir of latent resistance in the US. It’s mostly dormant at the moment, because an insufficient number of people have yet to experience economic hardship and the destruction of the so-called “American Dream” for a long enough period of time to engender rapid social mobilization.
But that’s coming, and the powers that be damn well know it!
