After the end of WWI, the Russian people, and particularly the soldiers, were sick and tired of all the failed fighting that the Russian Czar Government of the time had done. The Bolshevik Revolution of 1917 had success because simply because the people were sick of fighting.
Then Stalin took over in the late 1920s, and the peoples' worst fears were realized. Stalin turned the Russian Union into the worst "kill and be killed" machine that the world has ever known.
To this day, most Americans don't realize, that throughout the cold war with Russia, right down to the fall of the Soviet Union in the end of 1991, multitudes of Russian people were secretly in favor of the Soviet fall and victory for the United States and Western Europe. Many were praying for this to happen for decades, ever since Stalin took over. Ayn Rand was part of the large, scattered group of Russian people who were against their own government, the Soviet Union.
Gradually, over decades, perhaps beginning with the rise of the Federal Reserve Bank, the United States has been turning into a communistic, socialist country, like the Bolsheviks of Russia. Obama may not be to the point of Stalin, yet, but if he wins a second term in office, he may become such.
The U.S. is coming full circle. And the circle is that of being oppressed to freedom and back to being oppressed. The circle is like fighting and winning against communistic socialism, and then starting to become it. And not only that, part of our oppression is that we are slyly being forced to spread the oppression that we are falling into (even though we disavow doing so), against all kinds of foreign nations.
The people of America are starting to wake up. It is a slow rousing from slumber. There are many who don't want to accept the obvious evidence of what is happening.
Are we going to wake up in time? Or are we going to allow our Government to go the way of a Stalinist type of Russia? Are we going to fall under the oppression of a Soviet style of Government? Will we be the ones who will finally be hoping and praying for relief like multitudes of Russian people from the early '30s right down to the Soviet end in 1991?
Wake up, Americans. Smell the coffee and see the light, and take a look at what is going on in you country! If you don't wake up to the coming oppression, you will wake up inside that oppression one day! And it might be sooner than you think!
