By Joseph Farah Posted: December 11, 2009 ~ 1:00 am Eastern © 2009 The end of freedom as we have known it is near. Soon, if the enemies of freedom and the proponents of government command-and-control economies have their way, this is what you can expect:
- A shortage of well-paying, productive jobs actually making things: This is because of a combination of environmental rules and regulations, government red tape and corporate taxes that make it easier to ship jobs overseas. If you think it's bad now, you ain't seen nothing yet. Americans also have to compete now with illegal aliens for employment because the government refuses to do something it actually has a responsibility to do – control the borders.
- You will be told what you can drive and what you can't: This is part of the government's power grab under the rubric of "climate change." Carbon dioxide, a naturally occurring gas vital to all living things, has been determined to be the biggest hazard on the planet – responsible for "global warming" apparently impossible to detect with thermometers, but only through computer modeling. A side effect of this plan is even fewer productive jobs.
- You will be told what medical procedures you can have and which you can't have: The government will soon be a middleman between you and your doctor. Even your hard-earned money, if you have any, will be useless in persuading doctors in this country to treat you.
- Your vote will be meaningless: Of course, systems like these cannot be mandated in a country in which politicians are accountable to the people, so the power of your vote will need to be watered down by giving amnesty to millions of illegal aliens who, in turn, will vote for their benefactors, returning them to office. In addition, criminal organizations like ACORN will be funded by the government and probably placed in charge of elections – if elections are permitted to take place at all.

- Your guns will be taken away: Tyrannical regimes can only survive in countries in which the government maintains a monopoly on force.
