How does " limited" government become SO unlimited?!

Limited government is like a limited pregnancy. it's a misnomer, a fairy tale, an oxymoron.
Despite arguments about the founding fathers true intentions, We are experiencing the reality of the natural course of authority. It cannot restrain itself or be restrained. Absolue power is never granted, It is always taken.
Likewise, our stolen inalienable freedoms will not be ceded back. They must be TAKEN!
We have a very small window to accomplish this life or death endeavor through an extremely corrupt political process which can only be overcome with shear force of numbers and will.
Now is that time.
Hold back NOTHING
As we battle to recover what only God has the right to give or take, we have the reassurance of knowing our just and mighty God detests the injustices of this wicked, covetous establishment.
To paraphrase Winston Churchill:
The establishment knows that it will have to break us in this campaign or lose the war. If we can stand up to it, all future generations may be free and life of the world may move forward into broad, sunlit uplands. But if we fall, then the whole world, including the United States, including all that we have known and cared for, will sink into the abyss of a new Dark Age made more sinister, and perhaps more protracted, by the lights of perverted science.
Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duties, and so bear ourselves that, if the United States lasts for a thousand years, men will still say, “This was their finest hour!”
Never give up! Never,never,never,never give up!

How we came to be in this

How we came to be in this particular situation is very simple; we didn't abide by the Constitution nor did we listen to what the founders had suggested in the Federalist and Anti-Federalist papers.

We allowed for there to be a standing army -this very simple concession allowed for their to be a constant threat against the people.

We also allowed for the Federal Government to establish police forces, the U.S. Marshals, the Secret Service, FBI, etc. These two seemingly minor concessions prevented the people from usurping the government when the real tyranny began.

We allowed for a Central Bank to be established which then made the entire U.S. dependent on the Federal Government and its Central Bank.

We allowed the States to lose their representation within congress -Senators are now elected by the people.

We allowed judges to be of the same kind as lawyers and politicians, where as Federalist Paper #63 stated that judges should be of regular people and not from a political or legal profession.

We allowed for there to be a permanent income tax imposed on the citizens.

We allowed property tax to exist.

We allowed for public schools to be introduced.

We allowed court decisions to create or be based on precedence and not on the merits of the case or argument.

We allowed etymology to redefine terms, like: State, United States, Income, Property, Welfare, and Regulate.

-This is not the order in which the changes took place-

As these changes took place each change made relevant the changes which followed, until we arrive at the present with no semblance of the Union which was created in 1787.

You state that, "The establishment knows that it will have to break us in this campaign or lose the war." This is incorrect, "The Establishment," is found within both parties, therefore both Obama and the GOP nominee -with the exception of Dr. Paul- is "The Establishment." The GOP will either have to compromise with us, by nominating Dr. Paul, or lose; but this is different then "The Establishment." No matter who wins on Nov 6 2012, with the exception of Dr. Paul, "The Establishment" wins. The GOP wing of "The Establishment" may lose, but for them that is better than Dr. Paul winning the nomination; especially since they(the GOP/RNC) will blame the GOP loss on Dr. Paul and his supporters -so they can effectively limit the true republicans of the GOP from gaining ground- in both, the different areas of government and in the GOP itself.

So, for the GOP/RNC and "The Establishment," the best outcome would be for the GOP nominee to lose to Obama.

Yes, good supporting detail.

To clarify, I replaced Churchill's words; "Hitler" with establishment and " war" with campaign, in order to personalize the plea which is vaid whether Establishment is both parties or any other authoritarian entity that usurps or assumes imagined or legislated power or authority over other men. This is the common denominator in all the abuses you listed.
Authority and law do more harm than good. Since authoritarians cannot recognize themselves as instruments of destruction, their actions and laws should be measured by a standard such as "first do no harm" despite that principles dismal failure in the medical industry. reigning government authority back via libertarian principles would be a huge blessing to liberty at this point but gov't and mans inability to restrain himself from taking and abusing power will not cease until a new paradigm of the golden rule is actually accepted and legitimized.

A patriot must always be prepared to defend his country from his government.

Thanks for the kind words.

Slippery slope. A progression

Slippery slope. A progression over a long period of time. First Lincoln established a precedent of the federal government controlling the states in area the constitution says shoud be left up to the states.

Second, 1913 I think it was, the income tax was established.

Third, FDR turns us into a socialist country and assigns everyone a number at birth, keeps track of us our whole lives and forces us into a government mandated retirement plan.

Fourth, and this blew the lid completely off of any hope of a limited government-Truman takes the country to war at the cost of 50,000 good men's lives with the first of our now endless wars without a declaration of war by the congress. He calls it a "police action" Now they don't even bother with the pretense.

I'm sure a lot of posters on here smarter than me can add to this list but generally that's how limited government becomes unlimited. That's how you go from freedom to tyranny.
