America is at a crossroads – again. The looming mid-term 2014 election, probably the most critical one of our times, will determine what kind of future ordinary, working Americans will enjoy – or endure. The so-called “ruling class” that is now known as the Obama administration and Congress will always take care of itself first, since they believe they are under no obligation to live by the rules they impose on others. Not since before the American Revolution when patriots fought to be free of King George’s tyrannical rule have we had such a stark choice. True, it’s only a mid-term election but our very future is at stake: two of the paths lead to radically different destinations. The path to the right leads to a restoration of our Constitutional Liberties and individual, God-given freedoms, while the path to the left leads to domination and ultimate servitude. Overly dramatic assessment? I don’t think so. We are rapidly losing – and have already lost much of those unique features that made America a “shining city on the hill;” a beacon of hope to the oppressed.
We’ve had arrogant elitist presidents like Roosevelt and humble men like Truman. We’ve had presidents with great vision like Lincoln and Reagan, and short-sighted presidents like Carter and Clinton. But we’ve never had anyone like Barack Hussein Obama. He is at the same time a beckoning and repelling figure. He is, I believe, a man whom Destiny called on not to preside over a great and prosperous nation, but to teach America a sorely needed lesson. Are we a nation under God – or under flawed men? A born ideologue, Mr. Obama has in a short space of time exposed the long-hidden, soft underbelly of this nation and wasted no time in taking advantage of it. Under his guidance dependency is not just fostered, but has become an honorable way of life. Independent Americans, however, are a threat to the Washington elitists’ power structure and to Obama personally. Why else would he have stated early on that he wanted a militia under his control, as strong or stronger than our standing army?
This president and this administration have arrogated power in defiance of and contempt for our Constitution. By fiat a few flawed mortals using propaganda can control every aspect of American culture by employing the tools of guilt and guile. We fought a revolution for fewer grievances than we now face. Taxation without representation is back big time and George III seems to have been reincarnated in the body of Barack Obama. But even that affront pales in comparison to the multiple assaults on the American people and the American way of life – always masquerading as benefits, or taking advantage of normal fears about security.
If President Obama wins back the House of Representatives he will own America, and the lemmings among us will follow him over the cliff to certain ruin – if not total destruction. But to their horror they will not find their leader among them at the bottom sharing their pain. He will still be high on the cliff, looking down at the sorry mass of humanity, and with a supercilious smile, and that long pointing figure, he will address the unfortunates writhing below him: “Don’t worry; your government is here to help you.” And that’s the last they will see of him.
If on the other hand we choose the right path, the Democrats will lose both houses of Congress and their unquenchable thirst for power will be stanched, and slowly a new respect for and appreciation of our Constitution will eventually lead to a restoration of our God-given freedoms.
The burning question is, as we face this critical election, will voters blind to history and the consequences of certain choices, allow Obama to complete his socialist transformation of America because they like him? Or want to save his presidency? One might even ask, in light of so many major scandals and assaults on our Constitution, why is Obama still in office? No other president could have been so culpable on so many fronts and have avoided impeachment or censure. Is there something special about Obama that elicits a misguided adoration for him even at the risk of one’s own personal ruin?
Where do our leaders come from? Do special times compel a particular type of individual to come forth and take up the reins of power? Or is it the individual who by his charisma and sheer determination and ambition drives history? Were the New Deal and the Great Society only FDR’s and Lyndon Johnson’s personal dreams that they were able to sell to a disheartened, but receptive country? Or did those presidents respond to a yearning or need they sensed in the public? Were they power mad politicians– or compassionate public servants? Was our lurch to the Left the result of a long-standing and ongoing process that inevitably led to the election of our first openly radical president who happened to be a black African-American? What is there about this community organizer from Chicago, an apostle of Saul Alinsky, and a man with a disdain for American values and traditions who promised to fundamentally transform America? Who asked him to? Did the majority of voters understand his mission when they voted for him? Who’s running this planet? Mr. Obama and his minions? Sometimes it seems as though it’s nothing more than the survival of the fittest; the rule of the jungle, with billions of people in the world mired in poverty while their leaders connive ways to keep their power, and enjoy every conceivable material advantage while preaching austerity to the masses. President Obama, probably the most divisive president in our history, talks about “fairness,” but what is it, and who determines what’s fair? Our president believes he knows, and left to him he will continue to allocate the fruits of our labors according to his Saul Alinsky ideology: Take from the haves and give it to the have-nots.
If we can agree on one thing perhaps it can be that Obama is a mainstream media creation, for without its complicity, a willingness to look the other way, and its utter lack of curiosity surrounding his radical past, Obama could never have become president. History teaches our elected officials nothing; they dismiss the failures of European socialist societies as merely misguided applications of the right theories by flawed people, and this time they are convinced that they will get it right.
The so-called RINOs among us, the elite establishment figures, if you will, believe that we in the Tea Party movement constitute the extremist elements of the Republican Party, and they insist that only if they attract the moderates can Republicans win elections. And the ‘Establishment’ blithely continues to choose loser after loser in pursuit of their own misguided notion of Utopia. What so many people forget is that since the Democrats have moved so far left, and in essence have moved moderates with them to the left, those of us with commonsense and traditional values seem to be far right misfits when in fact we are the norm. But actually our RINOs, John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Mitt Romney, the Bushes, and even Chris Christie are actually Kennedy Democrats. They are the tired face of the GOP, while we Tea Party members are its lifeblood, its energy and its future. But everyone will prosper in the restored America we envision; free of the “We the Government” mentality.
If, as the Bible tells us, there is a season for all things, then I would say that Mr. Obama’s season has come and gone. He may remain in office, but the pendulum of the Celestial Clock has swung as far left as it can go without fomenting a revolution, and it must inevitably turn to the right. America’s survival as the haven for individual liberty and freedom is on the line. Remember that “we the people” own America, not radical, leftist, self-serving, arrogant, misguided Washington politicians who have forgotten that they are our servants, and this next election will either secure their tyrannical rule or learn from the painful lesson.
