I don’t know about you, but I’m hearing more and more from people around the country who are terrified about where the nation is headed.

Every day, we’re confronted with more unchecked abuses of power. Judges, attorneys general, governors, legislators and the president of the United States are openly ignoring their oaths to uphold the law. The people’s say at the ballot box seems to mean nothing now.

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS), fresh from being exposed for targeting Tea Parties, brazenly proposes new rules to make sure agents can continue the persecution without worrying about legalities.

Even the mighty National Football League and the 2015 Super Bowl were used as leverage by homosexual activists and their corporate allies to kill a much-needed religious freedom bill in Arizona last week.

It’s not just government agencies that are functioning as ruthless enforcers of political correctness. Ask any schoolchild who has had the audacity to defend marriage in a Facebook posting or Tweet. The mayors of Boston and New York boycotted their cities’ St. Patrick’s Day parades this week because parade organizers would not allow the events to become a forum to promote homosexuality. Beer giants Guinness, Heineken and Sam Adams pulled their sponsorships for the same reason.

Everything, every event, every person has to be broken to the saddle of the pansexual Left. And that’s only part of the Left’s agenda for America.

Nothing seems to slow down this juggernaut, but not everyone is bowing to the new gods.

Dr. Ben S. Carson is a man who does not engage in hyperbole. His sheer reasonableness, along with a stellar career as one of the nation’s top neurosurgeons, terrifies liberals.

In an interview with at the recent Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), he likened the current trend of intimidation in America to conditions in Nazi Germany. Asked about his remark that we are “living in a Gestapo Age,” Dr. Carson responded:

“I mean very much like Nazi Germany, and I know you’re not supposed to say Nazi Germany, but I don’t care about political correctness. You know, you had a government using its tools to intimidate the population. We now live in a society where people are afraid to say what they actually believe.”
