This is like something you'd read deep inside a newspaper where the column inches are not so important as it's about some banana republic where this kind of thing goes on and on in a vicious circle of political despair. Can't these people ever get to grips with democracy, stop corruption and rid themselves of idiots filled with greed and megalomania?

How frightening for the world that this is not about a banana republic but it's about the leader of the free world, the late great USA...


Voters Worry Military Exercises May Lead to Federal Control Of States

Eight weeks of U.S. military exercises this summer in several southwestern states - dubbed Jade Helm 15 - have some wondering if the government is preparing for martial law. Most voters don’t oppose such exercises, but a surprising number worry about what the federal government is up to.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 65% of Likely U.S. Voters favor the U.S. military conducting training exercises in their state. Just 16% are opposed, but slightly more (19%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Only 21% believe the government’s decision to conduct military training exercises in some states is an infringement on the rights of the citizens in those states. Sixty-two percent (62%) disagree. Sixteen percent (16%) are not sure.

But 45% of voters are concerned that the government will use U.S. military training operations to impose greater control over some states, with 19% who are Very Concerned. Just over half (52%) are not concerned that the government has an ulterior motive for the training exercises, including 26% who are Not At All Concerned.

Among voters who oppose military exercises in their state, 82% are concerned that the federal government has greater control in mind. Just 34% of those who favor the exercises share that concern.

This level of concern is perhaps less surprising given that 62% of Americans believe there is too much government power and too little individual freedom in the United States today...

It may be a needless fear, but the fact that it is so widely held tells us that government has gotten far too big, far too intrusive, and far too removed from the people it is supposed to serve.

We now have a government of the people by a professional elite for the private purposes of that elite—be those purposes financial advantage, the accumulation of personal power or possessions, or the advancement of personal philosophies. Those are man's motivators. What they do not see is that ALL of those motivators are tools of Satan that further his purposes in propelling his opposition to God and his desire to destroy as many of God's created beings as is possible.

Remember....it's not the Truth that fails mankind, it is the lies and mis-perceptions we choose to believe. Governments, powers and principalities, take steps to create both fear and trust. Once perception is controlled, people are controlled.

I think these "exercises" are meant to create mind numbing uncertainties. This is a grand effort to force us to seek a compromise that allies all fears.
