“As your president, I will strive to uphold the rights of the people! I will protect this great nation and it's people until my dying breath!” The politician raised his arm. “I swear on all that is right in this world, I will restore us to our former glory!” The people stood up and cheered. The show that the politician was putting on was riling them up in pride and hope. There were more candidates for president of the country, but the people had already decided.
The presidential election had come out as expected. The president won by a landslide and was now is office. His actions as president had secured the trust of the people. The president had allowed the debt that the country was in to slowly decrease overtime, lowered taxes, got rid of restrictions that subdued freedom of speech, etc. This easily got the president elected into a second term. But this term would take a turn for the worse.
Just as the president was re-elected, a tragedy occurred. A deranged man stole his Uncle's shotgun and brought it into an elementary school and proceeded to kill thirty-seven people and injure over one-hundred more. The media began to tug at people's heart strings and the presidents immediately went after civilian owned firearms. Creating many campaigns in favour of the seizure of firearms. As soon as gun registration became required, they swiftly found and took every firearm that they could. After this, things started to go south.
The bill or rights meant nothing anymore. It was repealed without any public input. This meant that the president had 100% power, as there was nothing stopping it. Restrictive and oppressive laws started getting passed, stopping any form of protest or dissent. Any protestors caught were imprisoned and labelled 'terrorists'. The government took complete control of all education, forcing all children to attend federal education centres. The president introduced new regulations to food production. Restricting calcium and other nutrients that helped with physical development. In ten years, most citizens were weak and brittle. Nobody could do anything anymore. The idea of revolution was meaningless without firearms.
It wasn't long before human thought was restricted as well. Much scientific development resulted in the invention of a microchip that could be implanted into a human brain. It was able to coherently read thoughts and emotion. With commission from the “president”, they also allowed for the ability to paralyse individuals remotely. The chips became mandatory for all citizens of the country. Every man, woman and child had one surgically put into their brains. The government could now disable and arrest those who even thought of any form of resistance. This was something that would happen incredibly frequently.
Eventually, all children born were taken into custody by the state; and all of those who were currently over the age of eight were forcefully re-located into huge cities in a remote area of the country. None were allowed to leave. Eventually, all those who were moved into these cities died out, leaving them empty and forgotten. The children who were taken into custody were educated by the state and forced into an obedient mindset. They were ignorant of true history, never knew that they were being oppressed and were indoctrinated into believing that this was the correct was of life. There was no possible way to receive a proper education or to obtain legitimate information, that had been banned long ago...
