Was 2013 the year that Americans lost their liberty? [VIDEO]

The year 2013 began with a debate over private ownership of guns and ended with a failed launch of Obamacare. It has seen government encroachment into the lives of Americans, first with the IRS scandal — which saw government agencies target conservative groups — and later, the shocking revelations divulged by leaker Edward Snowden that the NSA has been spying on American citizens both online and on the phone.

Trevor Loudon, an author and blogger from New Zealand who has spoken to over 200 tea party groups in 30 states, decried the “normalcy bias” that blinds Americans from seeing a future America without liberty, the Constitution and military strength in an exclusive interview with The Daily Caller.

“When you grow up like that [with a strong national history], you think it’s going to go on forever,” Loudon said. “But there’s no law of nature that guarantees that.”

But, “if America fails, and America is in danger of failure — that is a harsh reality — if America fails, the West goes down,” he said. “Russia, China, Iran, Cuba, North Korea, Nicaragua, Venezuela and the crazed Islamic allies will carve up this planet amongst themselves. And, if you think the Dark Ages were a tough time, I think it’s going to be pretty bleak for a very long time.”

“We’ve been very, very lucky for the last sixty years that the most benevolent power the world has ever seen, the strongest military power the world has ever seen, it’s America that’s been leading the world, not Russia, China or Nazi Germany or someone like that.”

Loudon noted the irony of President Barack Obama and his Democratic allies calling the tea party “extremists” and “terrorists.”

The tea party, he said, is the “most patriotic, gentlemanly, fair-minded, generous, peaceful people — the exact opposite of terrorists. Yet, you have people in your Congress, mostly in the Democratic Party, who are allied to supporters of North Korea and Iran and Venezuela and Cuba and Communist China.”

“You’ve been infiltrated, and the infiltrators want to deflect attention off what they’re doing by basically demonizing the most patriotic, inoffensive people in this country, the tea party and their sympathizers,” he explained. “It’s Orwellian — truth is lies and lies are truth.”

With these attacks, Loudon said, the Democrats are merely “disguising their own anti-American activism.”

In his book, “The Enemies Within: Communists, Socialists and Progressives in the U.S. Congress,” Loudon names over 50 members of Congress who have radical connections to America’s adversaries. He discussed Reps. Judy Chu, John Conyers and Rosa DeLauro.

Certain member of Congress “couldn’t pass a basic security clearance to clean a toilet in any military base, and neither could your president, by the way,” he said.
