And then they came for me… (My Spin)

First, they came for the low income. Providing them with welfare, healthcare and getting them addicted to government. I didn’t speak up, because I wasn’t on welfare.

Then they came for the children. Indoctrinating them in the public schools, poisoning them with fluoride and I didn’t speak up, because I didn’t have children.

Then they came for the guns, and I didn’t speak up, because guns scare me anyway.

Then they came for our military. Poisoning their bodies with mandatory vaccinations and poisoning their minds with war propaganda and a false sense of patriotism. And I didn’t speak up, because they were keeping me “safe”.

Then they came for our right to free speech, and our right to peacefully assemble and I didn’t speak up because all those protesters do is cause problems for me.

Then they came for our personal liberties, aided by those who want to stop others from living their lives and pursuing happiness and I didn’t speak up because I still lived my life the way I wanted to.

Then they came for private citizens, concerned for their liberties and speaking out against government control, detaining them indefinitely on charges of domestic terrorism and I didn’t speak up, because I didn’t want to be a domestic terrorist.

And then they came for me - and since I stood by and allowed them to detain the true patriots, allowed them to indoctrinate and dumb down my children and allowed them to control other people’s lives - there was no one left to speak up.

    I have decided to change my blog. I give up on what passes for government now and will do something more fun now.

    I will keep checking here now and then and you are the first link in a new blogroll to build.

    Enjoy.
