FREEDOM VS. TYRANNY

(Nov. 25, 2012) — One major tenet of parenting is to let children suffer the consequences of their actions as long as they are not endangering themselves (or anyone else). Experience is by far the best teacher. Those who voted for anti-American Marxist-Muslim Dictator Obama will also suffer the horrible consequences of their decision, none of which would have occurred had Obama not been reelected: more expensive and less available healthcare along with invasion of personal privacy by a new huge federal bureaucracy under Obamacare which will cost about one trillion dollars per year; higher taxes (yes, for everyone); much higher energy costs; increasing job losses; decreasing entitlements; limited freedom; and a lower level of national security as our military is gutted by budget cuts and perverted by political correctness. Most Obama supporters are weak thinkers since they have sacrificed freedom for tyranny at the hands of political operatives who are more than willing to do their thinking for them. They will eventually realize that those of the radical Left for whom they voted do not embody virtue and honor which are the basis for sustaining a free people and a government with limited powers accountable to the People. Maintaining freedom is difficult, as it requires critical thinking and effort—both missing from the vocabulary of Obama supporters. Long ago we were forewarned that when the People vote for politicians who reward themselves and their constituents with money from the national treasury, the ensuing self-perpetuating parasitic relationship results in government domination of the People and ultimate collapse. Such is the nature of the current state of America, where about half the population reelected a corrupt president and his Administration of un-elected Czars, who with the help of Senator Harry Reid have rendered Congress and the Courts irrelevant, and with that, the certainty that the tenets of our founding documents have been and will continue to be violated.
What should patriots do now? Surrender is not an option. We owe a great debt to our ancestors who fought and died to protect our freedom from those who would have taken it away. Unfortunately, about half of voters reelected a Democrat Administration whose agenda is just that—to remove our freedoms one by one in accordance with the UN’s Agenda 21. Over the past several decades, liberals have infiltrated our culture, particularly our public education system and the media, so that many of the electorate no longer understand the history which under-girds our liberties or the skills which placed America ahead of other nations. Meanwhile, the Obama Administration has allowed the Muslim Brotherhood regular access to the White House. He has empowered them without permission (or even resistance) from Congress with taxpayer money to take over North African and Middle Eastern nations under the false pretense of establishing democracies. As we see with his good friend Morsi, their intentions are anything but democracy, but rather the establishment of dictatorships in which the Muslim Brotherhood takes charge in pursuit of a global caliphate. Obama is an accessory to this crime against humanity, but dumbed-down American voters buy into the word games of the Left and are blind as to their ideology. Another option for patriots is to simply leave for another part of the world, but there is no unsettled geography which would accommodate half our population. There are no other countries which can substitute for America’s culture of freedom.
The solution for patriots is at least two-fold. First, we must come together and choose the right message and the right messengers who do not look in the rearview mirror but rather sell the strength and promises of virtue and honor to the people, for it is only through honor and virtue that freedom can survive and bring prosperity to the People. The messengers must believe in their message and not react to the tactics of the Left who demean self-sufficiency, virtue and honor, and who divert the conversation away from real issues of importance while wrapping their tyrannical ideology with false promises to their gullible followers. Charismatic men and women who embody the qualities of integrity, honor and statesmanship—not political tomfoolery—must confront the Left head-on. Secondly, the Left’s strategy for maintaining power has been to falsely discredit Republicans as ‘obstructionists’ when quite the opposite is true. Perhaps Republicans should temporarily step aside to avoid that blame and just let the Left’s destruction of the middle class prevail, while the utterly corrupt lamestreet media chronicle our nation’s continued decline. The sooner the ‘progressives’ and their lapdog media darlings bring America to its knees, the sooner the rest of us will have an opportunity to resurrect America as the free nation it once was. For patriots to compromise our values to ‘meet the Democrats halfway’ is foolish, for there is no compromise between freedom and tyranny, between the rule of law and anarchy, or between solvency and bankruptcy. The eventual outcome of Obama’s perverted ideology is collapse of the economy, national insolvency and ultimately Fedzilla itself as it is abandoned by those who once supported America’s debt. Obama voters voted for this.
