There are dark days ahead for the USA
Politics From the Dark Side

I came across a fascinating article in The Telegraph yesterday which cited Britain’s most recent census figures; these show that almost 180,000 people in the UK identify themselves as “Jedi Knights” (from the Star Wars films), making this the most popular faith in the “Other Religions” category on the Census and the seventh most popular “religion” overall.
I’m not going to use this as an opportunity to beat up on the Brits for how far they’ve fallen culturally; in fact, it served to remind me of an analogy that sprang to mind with regard to the Star Wars phenomenon and America.
This one might even be more humiliating than the British Jedi Knights story, in fact…
In the second three-film installment of the Star Wars franchise (this would be the one that actually took place before the original three-film installment in the characters’ chronology), all of the evil being perpetrated (which leads up to the establishment of the Empire and subsequent rebellion from the first installment, if you’re still following) is of course being brought about by the mysterious dark Sith lord and his surrogates. In the last film (of the second installment), if the viewer hasn’t figured it out by then, we discover that the aforementioned dark lord is none other than Palpatine, the Republic’s trusted and beloved senior senator, who, throughout the series, had ostensibly been working with the Jedi protagonists.
Does any of this sound familiar?
Unfortunately, owing to the power of the Dark Side of the Force and the film’s screenwriters, the good guys in the Star Wars films did not have the benefit of knowing that Palpatine was actually their enemy as they were being sold down the road to slavery. There was simply no evidence. In our case, however, we have plenty. This, I imagine, means that we Americans are either significantly less intelligent than the citizens of the Galactic Republic, or that our intelligence was somehow moderated en route from “a galaxy far, far away.”
We have established that a preponderance of American voters are ill-informed of that which is transpiring across the political landscape, and rank-and-file liberals voters fall somewhere between deliriously deluded and malignant. A large segment of these have subscribed to the outright deceptions and convoluted rhetoric of the Obama administration, while others have been so completely inured with progressive doctrine that fiscal irresponsibility, the surrender of their liberty, and the immorality of redistributionist policies don’t even register in their minds.
Despite all of this subterfuge and the fact that America’s gravitation toward socialism was taking place long before Barack Hussein Obama came on the scene, it is still intellectually difficult to reconcile the fact that so few Americans can see what’s playing out before them as clearly as if they were indeed watching Star Wars. Unlike the Sith lord, every act of sabotage, every economy-stultifying, foreign policy compromising, Islamofascist-enabling move Obama made was executed completely above board. Millions are aware of his sinister executive orders, his ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, the communistic underpinnings of Obamacare, and his ploy to undermine the Second Amendment via the Fast and Furious gun running program, which became a political botched abortion of titanic proportions. The examples, as many a reader will know, are legion.
Yet popularly, there is no relationship drawn between these things – particularly those in the economic realm – and America’s ongoing advancement toward the fiscal, social, and geopolitical abyss. While so many remain under Obama’s spell (due to the efforts of his minions and the American press), even news organizations abroad routinely publish salient analyses of his subterfuge.
Generally, I dislike redundancy, so I imagine it will be something of a chore to routinely reiterate the things I’ve said over the past four years, and those I will say over the next four – assuming the opportunities for me to do so remain open.
In light of this: It’s becoming more apparent every day that several circumstances conspired to place Barack Obama in the White House for another four years, something that by all intelligent reckoning should never have happened. I have previously touched on the high probability that rampant voter fraud played a part in that outcome. As many of us have been saying for a long time, this is far bigger than Obama, and right now it doesn’t look like anyone in a position of power is going to address these issues. This is due to the fact that the Republican leadership in America is only slightly to the right of Obama and his ilk.
While it is important that we recognize and articulate these problems, I believe that in the long term, it will prove much more beneficial for liberty-loving Americans to work toward solutions to that which gave rise to them. All of this is very sobering of course, but I hope that it serves to galvanize Americans more than depress them, because the only alternative to resisting is to lie down and submit. There are dark days ahead for the USA, and when we pass into that period, most Americans will be caught completely unaware, and this could prove to be quite dangerous.
