“Find out just what the people will submit to, and you have found out the exact amount of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them; and these will continue until they are resisted with either words or blows, or with both.”
— Frederick Douglass, civil rights activist, (circa 1818-1895)
One of three possible scenarios is currently being played out in the United States.
The first option, is simply that the Obama Administration is the most corrupt, dishonest, and inept Administration that America has ever been burdened with.
That is the “best case” scenario. Unfortunately, this is the option that I think least likely.
I suppose it is possible that Obama has simply had a phenomenal run of bad luck; that the various bills and laws passed by his Administration have, by some fluke, been accidentally anti-small business, anti-free enterprise, economically suicidal, and have worsened the economic crisis, not ended it.
I might also mention that there has been a, how shall I say this—lackadaisical—attitude towards an American debt of biblical proportions.
The second option, is that the Obama Administration despises individual freedom, capitalism, free-enterprise, and is hell-bent on transforming the United States into a fascist/communist collective—a regime that will be run by a venal, ruthless, power-hungry elite.
That actually sounds more plausible to me.
The third option is, that the Obama Administration is part of a global restructuring process (New World Order), in which the world will be turned into a fascist/communist collective—run by a venal, ruthless, power-hungry elite.
My guess is—take your pick between options two and three.
If you’re surprised by my analysis, then you haven’t been paying attention to what has happened, and is happening, to the United States.
Let me roll out some facts and figures for you.
The SEIU (Service Employees International Union) is run by Andy Stern, a militant Far-Left thug, and Anna Burger, another Far-Left radical. The SEIU has increased its size and power through, arm-twisting intimidation tactics, and other nefarious means.
Two years ago Obama said before an SEIU rally, “I’ve spent my entire adult life working with SEIU.”
That is not good news. Once you’ve looked into the corruption, ruthlessness, and Far-Left agenda of the SEIU leadership, you will know that it is not good news at all.
Obama has appointed two stalwart friends of SEIU to high level positions: Kathleen Selibus (D-Kansas) as head of the Department of Health and Human Services, and Hilda Solis to head the Department of Labor.
The SEIU currently has over 2 million members. most of them are essentially unwilling inductees, but many are “true believers.”
Let’s discuss ACORN.
Wade Rathke, who “cut his teeth” in the Far-Left radical group SDS in the 1960s, founded ACORN, and also SEIU Local 100. These and numerous other Far-Left groups under the Rathke “umbrella” are funded by our taxpayer dollars.
According to the “Sweetness and Light” website: “ACORN claims more than 400,000 dues-paying member families, and more than 1,200 chapters in 110 U.S. cities.”
And lets not forget the hundreds of “advocacy groups” connected with Acorn: groups such as the WFP (Working Families Party),—which, according to an Associated Press report, was created in 1998 to help push the Democratic Party toward the left.” (Like they needed the help).
Many of our taxpayer dollars are funneled to various Far-Left organizations which, after the “bosses” get their cut, distribute the money among hundreds, possibly thousands, of groups which advocate the destruction of the United States as a free republic, and the installation of a welfare collective.
That’s not hyperbole folks. It’s a con game that is going on, and has been going on for years—with the assistance of radical leftist foundations like Arca, and the Tides Foundation.
Some deal, huh? Collect the money earned by some bourgeois chump, and then spend your time trying to destroy the system that enabled the chump to make the money in the first place. Sweet!
My point here is that there are already a number of available thugs in place, should the Obama Administration need them. And we shouldn’t forget AmeriCorp, and the other paramilitary groups getting ready to “muscle up.”
Although I’ve been talking exclusively about the Far-Left influence, I don’t want to be remiss, and forget to mention that greed, corruption, and duplicity are non-partisan vices. The right-wing has its share of snakes in the grass as well.
I watched a town hall meeting yesterday where Senator McCain was asked a question about Obama disrespecting the U.S. Constitution. Senator McCain replied, “I’m sure that he respects the Constitution.”
Senator McCain’s comment was booed, and I turned off the TV. Why are you covering for Obama, John?
How can a person with as many years on Capitol Hill as Senator McCain, say with a straight face, that Obama respects the Constitution. I guess it takes all those years in Congress, to be able to state such a bald-faced lie with a straight face.
With all due respect to his heroic service record, Senator McCain is either an inattentive dolt, or he thinks that the American public are morons. I’m not especially fond of either conclusion.
Obama and his ilk have been trying to tear down the Constitution for decades. It’s an axiom that the Far-Left hates the Constitution, and the liberal-left is no friend to it. They see it, and have always seen it, as an obstacle to implementing their collectivist social engineering agendas.
An article from “The American Spectator” states that Obama believes that, “The Constitution’s fatal “flaw” is that it set up a limited form of government, far too passive in its understanding of rights to deliver the liberal utopia for which radicals have rooted since the 1960s.”
The Far-Left has an undeniable panache for naming things what they are not. Calling the government takeover of health care, the “public option,” is one example. Another gem, is calling the “death by a thousand cuts,” of the U.S. Constitution, the “Living Constitution.”
As Bubba Clinton might have said, “Just how do you define the word—living?”
By the term “living Constitution” the Left means a pliable, moldable, elastic Constitution. A Constitution that can be stretched and formed to mean anything that they want it to mean. They mean the death of the U.S. Constitution, as it was written by the Founding Fathers.
Instead of a bulwark protecting the American public from government interference, the Constitution will become a means for enacting Draconian laws to oppress the people. The “living Constitution” means a perverted travesty of the U.S. Constitution.
It’s rapidly coming down to this: either there will be a number of unpatriotic, if not anti-American individuals, who will be tried for treason against the United States, during a time of war—and I believe that the penalty for that is death—or the United States as a free republic, and world power, will perish.
As Abraham Lincoln so eloquently put it, “We shall nobly save, or meanly lose, the last best hope of earth.” The time is upon us, and we cannot vacillate any longer.
I live in Florida, and we’re used to getting ready for hurricanes. We buy portable radios, flashlights, and batteries. We stock up on non-perishable foods, and bottled water.
There is most definitely a “hurricane” coming, and for this storm, you might want to add arms and ammo to your shopping list.
Keep a “weather eye” out for the “Reichstag fire,” and don’t buy into the H1N1 crisis (yes, yet another crisis—yawn), and keep your butt out of any “quarantine camps.”
Godspeed. And may God bless America.
