New America, American Slavery Today

Updated on December 23, 2011

Do what your told

The new slavery is government control

Slavery in American is growing. The slave owners are the Democrat congress and President Obama. They are on course to enslave million more Americans every day.

America is in the process of heading to a new form of slavery. Will the American people give up freedom for security granted by the government? With the passage of the new health care bill, we may be further down that road than ever before. This new health care bill will make new slaves out anyone wanting to access the health care in the U.S.

Slaves to the government increase with every social program that passes. We currently have slaves to the Medicare and Medicaid systems. Without these social systems in place people would have to depend on personal perseverance and charity from churches, like we used too. These people are slaves to the government bureaucracy associated to these programs. In the pass, Democrats have used promises of more benefits to gain votes. Will they revolt now, knowing that the Health care bill is going to be used gut benefits from theses systems? They have been enslaved for so long they will probably follow their master now, no matter where he leads them.

The other current form of slavery is social security. The Democrats have used this system for years to gain the votes of senior citizens. Every election cycle the Democrat candidates claim that if you don’t vote for them, the republicans will cut your social security benefits. They have been continually building the base of slaves for decades. They have used phrases like, if you elect the opposition you be eating dog food because they will take your money. The problem with this form of slavery is that the politicians on the Democrat side never tell them the truth, like the Social Security System is broke. Right now, in 2010, the government will pay out more in benefits than it collects in taxes. When Republicans offered to reform social security the Democrats fought to kill it. The youth in America will be slaves to social security in the future in the form of higher taxes to support the retiring baby boomer generation.

As government expands its power over its people, it also increases its slave base. With the health care bill set to explode the deficit in the next 10 years, more and more slaves will be created by the higher taxes that will be required to pay for it. As we move into the age of government control of every aspect of our lives, will we ever find enough people to fight slavery again?

When slavery was fought in the civil war, the republicans led the way. Does the name Abraham Lincoln ring a bell with anyone? When the civil rights movement took place in the late fifty and early sixties it was the republican party that fought to repeal segregation. The democrats wanted to keep people in their place, the main voice Democrats Robert Byrd once wrote “I shall never fight in the armed forces with a Negro by my side... Rather I should die a thousand times, and see old glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels.” Even being a former KKK member didn't discourage black vote. After the civil rights bill was enacted, the democrat found another way to adopt the black vote and enslaving them once again by promising them social benefits. Benefits such as public housing did nothing to empower the community, but enslaved them to a life of crime and desperation.

The more power we give the government to take care of our every need, the less freedom we enjoy. Will there come a time that a new exodus from slavery will take place in our society? Will the government refuse to give up its power over its people? If the vote on the health care bill is any indication, it will take a lot of change in our leadership in congress to do this. The health care bill was passed by democrats against the will of the people, the slave owners say that we don’t know what is good for us, so they passed the bill to protect us. Now to gain our confidence again the president is out making speeches to reassure everyone that everything is going to be better. The slave owner would never tell the slave the truth, starving while being free is far better than being fed as a slave.

Don’t be a slave to your government, stand up for freedom and vote for people that will let people live and dream the American Dream. Our forefathers fought freedom, it’s our turn.

      From reading this the New Deal and other social programs such as social security and the GI bill were simply means to enslave people.The churchs and ,charities and personal perserverance are not going to do much for the homeless and the sick. There are too many.That is why these programs are needed. That the corporations and Wall Street benefit far more than the poor from Obamas polities indicates who he works for .Why is it ok for billions to be spent on unnecessary wars and corporate bail outs,but taking care of the sick and poor is their problem.Let's take care of our citizens with our taxes first. Billions have been stolen and spent in these wars that will change nothing in those countries.

      R.Cochran, your hub is very informative and your opinion has a lot of truth. Invisible chains are harder to break than visible ones and slavery based on class is harder to identify than that based on race. This is why Barack Obama was the perfect candidate for the Democrats, he looks like one who is a racial healer when in fact he is a multi-racial slave driver.

      Your views are that the government imposes slavery upon its people through social programs. The truth of the matter is that social programs or not, we are enslaved by the monetary system and the people at the top of it. Our money goes to Exxon, Citigroup, and Microsoft. These Corporations and many others are the ones that we serve, for they are the ones that control the government. Social programs are merely to keep the illusion going that the government has some kind of care for it's people. Open your minds to new possiblities at http://www.amongstthemeek.blogspot.com/

      You said,

      "Medicare and Medicaid...

      Without these social systems in place people would have to depend on personal perseverance and charity from churches, like we used too."

      First, who is the WE in "like WE used to?"

      Do you mean to say that you used to have survive on perseverance and charity from churches for your medical needs? And that you don't anymore but you want to go back to that?
