What is the fascination with the word CZAR?

What is the fascination with the word CZAR?

Can anyone explain to me WHY we have appointed individuals, appointed by the executive branch of this government, appointed to positions of power and oversight? Appointed, NOT elected, and tell me WHY those individuals are being given the title of CZAR?

Does the federal government, the ones that are handing this CZAR title out like it’s some kind of great honor, do they have any indication of what a CZAR really is or what the history of the Czars is?

czar - noun
1. an emperor or king.
2. (often initial capital letter) the former emperor of Russia.
3. an autocratic ruler or leader.
4. any person exercising great authority or power in a particular field: a czar of industry.

The Romanov Dynasty begins in 1613 and ends with the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917. Explore Russia’s rich history through the lives of some of its most famous leaders. Click on a date and meet face-to-face with the rulers of the House of Romanov. SOURCE

Why do the American people need to be overseen by numerous CZARS? Is there some hidden reference, a subtle, or maybe a not so subtle warning in this CZAR thing?

Not only the Communists but many of their critics (such as Solzhenitsyn) have swiftly dismissed the idea that czarism was an important influence upon Communist theory and practice. But the evidence is compelling.

Communism first took hold in Russia, a nation with a centuries-old reputation for despotism, servility, and brutality. The Marquis de Custine, whose Letters from Russia (1839) led many to dub him “the de Tocqueville of Russia” observed that “Government in Russia is military discipline in the place of civil order, a state of siege which has become the normal state of society.” This authoritarian tradition strongly influenced the Russian Marxists, and through them much of the world socialist movement. Some of the important features of czarism that Communism drew upon and intensified included: More Here

Czars, and their absolute power, lead to very bad things. Totalitarianism, Marxism, the Bolsheviks, Communism, all of the things that Russia suffered as it evolved into the Soviet Union.

Russia, in contrast, was for centuries marked by the extraordinary concentration of power in the hand of a single man, the czar. Ivan III began the use of the term, a Russified version of “caesar.” From the Byzantine Empire, the Russians acquired not only the Eastern Orthodox faith, but also a careful theoretical defense of absolute and undivided power.

When one of the czars went too far, dissidents normally had to submit or turn to violent rebellion. Before 1917, the last truly significant civil unrest ended in 1613, when the Romanov dynasty assumed the throne. The Romanovs carefully cemented their nation’s tradition of total and autocratic power. Within a generation, the Romanovs cast off the oversight of the nobility; Czar Peter the Great, assuming power in 1696, tightened the monarchy’s grip even further: SOURCE: Czarist Origins of Communism

It’s all about the POWER, and the ABSOLUTE POWER that the one in charge can exercise over the common man. Russia was dominated by the Czars and there was only one way to rid Russia of the Czars, and that was the Russian Revolution, a revolution that brought the Bolsheviks to power and eventually led to the communist regime that Russia became, and for all purposes and intents, still is today.

The Russian Revolution is the series of revolutions in Russia in 1917, which destroyed the Tsarist autocracy and led to the creation of the Soviet Union. In the first revolution in February 1917 (March in the Gregorian calendar) the Czar was deposed and replaced with the Provisional government, and in the second revolution in October the Provisional Government was removed and replaced with a Bolshevik (Communist) government.

I don’t intend to come across as a harbinger of doom, but it’s got to be said, it must be pointed out, the United States is getting very close to this revolution, and that places ALL of us on a slippery slope. We can’t allow a Bolshevik style revolution to take place. We can’t allow the government of this nation to become any MORE oppressive than it already has, and becomes, more every day.

I am not advocating a revolution, an overthrow of the government of the United States, at least, not a violent overthrow. What I do suggest, and what I hope to see happen, is for the American people to return to their CONSERVATIVE roots, the ethics and values that built this nation. We MUST have an overthrow, we MUST have an immediate change in policy or this nation is sunk.

If that change can’t be achieved in a peaceful manner, through civil discourse and voting, then let history be our guide and let the chips fall where they may!

God please, SAVE America! Barring that, may God BLESS the great Republic of Texas and give our state the divine guidance and leadership we’ll need to stand as a FREE Republic!
