You obviously didn't spend any time in the Soviet Union. Or anywhere in the Eastern Bloc. I lost family in Czechoslovakia because they committed the crime of wanting to decide who to vote for and what church to go to. The US has very serious issues to contend with, and there is a possibility that, given enough time and the right (wrong) decisions, things could become as dystopian as people such as yourself are so prone to envision. But comparing the current state of affairs to those regimes only shows that your 1) angry, which is understandable, 2) in need of some history studies and 3) prone to hyperbole to further your own ideological beliefs, no matter how valid they may or may not be. The political issues within the United States are both very clear and horribly obfuscated. They don't need to be made any more so, whether on Main Street, in Congress or on an internet forum.
