A nation of sheep breeds a government of wolves

Ex-judge Andrew Napolitano, a pro-life libertarian, now works for Fox News (enough said, I hear the cries), however the video below is worth viewing even though it is US-based. The central points that he makes are also applicable to our nation.
"When we pliantly accept violations of our natural rights, we embolden the government to violate them even more. The more sheep-like the people are, the more wolf-like the government becomes....When you believe the government, that it can keep you safe by invading your natural rights, you end up with neither - not liberty nor safety. Who will keep us safe from the goveernment?"

In this country, Napolitano's Constitution Offenders comprise: Heath, Wilson, Callaghan, Major, Blair, Brown and, more recently, Cameron. With each (Major just 'scrapes' in) blame can also be laid at the door of our elected representatives, as the more sheep-like the MPs behaved (putting party before country), the more wolf-like the respective governments became.

The same thing is going on in the States as it is here because the Anglo-American paradigm of democracy has to be savaged so that the Internationalist Socialists and Megacorporate Banker types can install their hybrid brand of Collectivism (Fascism, Communism, its all Marxism at the bottom). People have woken up to the fact that there is no difference between a institutional Republican and a Democrat.

The Constitutionalists in the States have got a head start because people like Judge Napolitano are on the mainstream media, and our cousins are electing the likes of Rand Paul, although I think they would kill for a proper third party in the mould of UKIP, which there are already links with. One of our great hopes is the Constitutionalist movement in the States.

Anonymous: We do have our version of Napolitano in Farage. The only problem is he has to go on foreign media tv to get a hearing!

James: Bastards indeed!
