I got this in an E-mail and thought I would share...

Abusive behavior

I know someone whose husband won't let her visit friends or family.
 
He's made her stop all contact with them unless it's by phone or computer.
 
He reads and censors all her comments on social media.
 
He makes her feel like she's going crazy for thinking that he's controlling her and that she's being ungrateful, after all he's only doing this because of how much he cares for her.
 
He doesn't want her going to the gym anymore so she doesn't go.
 
He doesn't want her going to work anymore, so she doesn't go. He told her, you gotta rely on me for income. He doesn't let her go out anymore unless it's for necessities, and when she does he makes sure he has people in place to guilt trip her about it.
 
He wants her to have a medical procedure done and if she does she'll have more freedoms.
 
And to top it all off he's always telling her he's only doing this because he cares.
 
Oh wait!!
 
Did I say husband?  I'm sorry, I meant the federal government.
 
Here's the funny thing in society, you're all outraged if we do this to a spouse, it's Domestic Violence.... but when the government does it you're completely OK with it?
 
I’m not.
 
We better damn well get out s##f together and say HELL NO!!!

I didn’t think of it that way before, but you are right, it is controlling and abusive.

Yep... it's unConstitutional to say the least. Many don't realize it, and the younger generation never knew because they weren't taught about our Constitution and Bill of Rights.

It's an inexcusable over reach of government that should have never happened but is still currently ongoing!!!

As long as people don’t push back it will continue.

Eventually, they will push back... I'm just worried about how much farther it will go before they start pushing back.

I think this helps explain a bit about why many don't push back:

It’s close to criminal that we can’t teach real history anymore. There is no excuse for any student to get through school without a thorough knowledge of our country’s history.

If they don't learn history, they're bound to repeat it. History teaches that socialism is not good. The democrats want to usher socialism into our country. Otherwise they would continue teaching it.

They also don't teach about our Constitution or Bill of rights either so many don't know or understand that their freedoms are being trampled on. After a few more generations like those they're currently churning out... after we've passed away, all they will know is that they must follow what the government says regardless of whether it's Constitutional or not... regardless of whether it infringes on their rights or not!

That's the only excuse!

I would say about half the country learns real history and the other half is learning the new methods.  I hear people talking now and read what they say and it sometimes doesn’t make sense, given what I learned in school.  It’s just wrong.

Sadly... just wrong seems to be the new norm! Like it or not! That's where we are!
