Morning in Amerika

It is morning in Amerika and the majority of people who voted to reelect Barack Obama president don’t even know it.  Everything appears to be normal but everything has changed.  The United States will not be the same.

I have never felt that all was lost after a single election as I do today.  The ship of state has been described as a battleship.  Its course cannot be changed abruptly.   A major correction is a long slow process.

Barack Obama didn’t begin the process that changed us from a democratic republic to a democratic socialist country but he will finish it, or at the very least, take us to the point of no return.

He is a charismatic ideologue, a true believer in a Marxist collective society, where the people are best served by a government that redistributes wealth in order to take care of the basic needs of the people who become wards of the state.

In his first four years, Obama obtained control of one-sixth of our economy.  In the next four years, he will succeed in controlling much of the rest.  No longer restrained by party or fear of rejection, he will be free to trample on the Constitution in order to enact his perfect will.

Though Republicans retained control of the House of Representatives, Speaker Boehner will continue to cave in as he did in the battle over raising the debt ceiling which gave way to the unholy compromise that allowed those in power to keep spending at an alarming rate and, most assuredly, will result in crippling tax hikes and a weakened military.   If keeping our country from going over a financial cliff in order to satisfy the desires of liberal special interest groups, labor unions, large political donors and the behemoth government bureaucracy wasn’t an important enough issue to make a stand, what is?

There will be little, if any, real opposition, from the minority party in the Senate, as Republican leader Mitch McConnell cares more about maintaining his relationship with his BFF, Democrat leader Harry Reid, than he does about doing what is right for the country.

Obama most assuredly will have the opportunity to tip the balance of power in the Supreme Court, his only remaining obstacle on the road to a Marxist socialist utopia.

Those voters who just assume that our form of government will endure and that our country can remain a beacon of hope for oppressed people around the world know nothing of history.

These two well-known quotes about the lifespan and the nature of government bear repeating.

“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship.” 

 “The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations from the beginning of history has been about 200 years. During those 200 years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence:

  • From bondage to spiritual faith;
  • From spiritual faith to great courage;
  • From courage to liberty;
  • From liberty to abundance;
  • From abundance to selfishness;
  • From selfishness to complacency;
  • From complacency to apathy;
  • From apathy to dependence;
  • From dependence back into bondage.”

While almost half of us receive some or all of our income from the federal government, it is clear from the exit polls that a small majority, 51 – 43 percent, still prefer smaller government with less services.  Clearly, there is a disconnect from what we believe and how we vote.

There is little doubt that Obama’s victory can be chalked up, in part, to Hurricane Sandy.    Four in ten voters say his response was an important factor in their vote and those people backed the president by a two to one margin

In other words, the hurricane gave the attractive Obama a chance to appear on television looking caring and compassionate in the 11th hour of the campaign and that likely pushed him over the top in this narrow election of lasting importance.

Unfortunately, far too many American voters choose their candidate the way a seven-year-old chooses her Barbie doll.  It was an emotional, not at all a well-reasoned response.

Freedom is elusive.  It is not easily obtained and can be lost on a whim.

It is morning in Amerika.

  1. Amerika has become a nation of spoiled four year old children in the bodies of adults, unwilling to look past the surface appearance of people and events at the underlying reality. They look at Obaminable and think: “He smile. He wear pretty clothes. He say pretty things. He nice man.” Obaminable’s appearing for a Sandy photo op with the fat guy meant, to their tiny minds, that the Unpresident was personally helping the flood victims. How do the useful idiots on the Jersey shore feel about the Great Pretender now that Obaminable’s corrupt and inept FEMA has done next to nothing to help them and colder winter storms are hitting them? Probably many of them still worship Big Brother.
    I often disagree with WND columnist Phil Elmore, and, a couple of times I have become quite angry with him, but he is usually almost as right on as Ms. Chastain. Mr. Elmore has compared the majority of voters to the mindless, shambling, ravening hordes of zombies seen in recent movies, and that is about what many Amerikans have become.
    They will cheer for their demonic messiah when Obaminable shuts down sites like this and begins the mass arrests, torture, and murder of dissidents. And when the childish zombies are starving to death after the economy collapses, they will die as brain dead as they have lived.

  2. The ignorance of the masses is astounding with little or no knowledge of the facts let alone who and what a given politician is running his campaign/record on.
    “Ignorance is bliss” will soon turn to OMG as we loose more of our rights and the Constitution is trashed by a President who changes our country by Executive Order.
    The demise of America is a reality drawing close because we have not held our elected politicians accountable.
    Where is John Gault?

  3. Do not fear, we conservatives have lost nothing. We will be just fine because we already value what cannot be taken away from us: family, community, lifetime learning, a God who loves us, the commandments, and objective truth that guides us like a compass. Tax us at 100% but what matters most to us cannot be taken away.

    The young people and those who repudiate our values have only hurt themselves in voting for Obama. He promises them more of what already does not fulfill them. They hunger but will never be satisfied given more student loans, more food stamps, more unemployment checks, more contraception. They tax themselves, limit their own freedom, pile on debt they will have to repay, and stifle the economic growth they want but don’t know how to produce.

    They have repudiated family, God, objective truth, the laws of economics, and the wisdom accumulated by generations of their elders. They will reap the whirlwind, not us. Because we will still have everything that matters, even if we are penniless: each other, family, eternal values, and a God who loves us.

    Be at peace; we’re all in His hands and always have been.
