The Decline and Fall of the USA

The Boston Tea Party was a protest against the British tax on tea, which the colonists saw as “taxation without representation.” Is America experiencing the same thing now?

(Dec. 6, 2012) — It’s the year 2043, and a group of campers are lounging around the campfire after a day of hiking and fishing. For the past week at this time of evening one of the campers gets to tell a story. Sometimes old Brothers Grimm tales are told; other times a military career is recounted, with the teller downplaying everything because civilians are just too quick to scoff at what really happens.  Tonight is your turn, and you’ve decided to tell the history of when there was such a country that stood for the Truth but got derailed on the way to a prosperous future.

You start your tale with the Boston Tea Party, Paul Revere’s ride and the bounty, dead or alive, by the British for any of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. You talk about the turning point of the war, Valley Forge, and what an audacious rolling of the dice that was, certainly on par with the RAF defeating the German Luftwaffe during World War II as far as execution and bravery go, and a country’s survival at stake.

You mention the Louisiana Purchase and Seward’s Folly, the Prairie Schooner and the Homestead Act.  You take your listeners through all the wars in which we’ve been involved since the Revolutionary War, and of the pain, sacrifice and suffering we, as a people, have endured to keep the idea of Freedom alive.

You mention that the US Expeditionary Force went over to Europe in 1917 and came home ASAP after hostilities were brought to a close, with many claiming it was the great influenza pandemic that really ended the war.

You talk about the years leading up to December 7, 1941, how people made it through the depression and why people who lived through that time became misers and hoarders. And then you tell of World War II, the United States fighting a two-front war for its life.  If it weren’t for some lucky breaks, we’d probably all be speaking German and driving Japanese cars.

The Germans’ fatal mistake was one of philosophy, not of execution, starting with the expulsion of the Jews and disregarding “Jewish Science,” for had they not been so narrow-minded, they would have had the atom bomb years before us. The Germans also thought that their codes could never be broken, and that would have been true except for a couple of Polish guys making a replica of the encryption device out of wood and smuggling it to England, thereby making it possible for the Allies to read the Germans’ plans even before the Germans received them themselves.  This made the destruction of the Wolf Packs possible, facilitated the ambush on the Japanese task force at Midway, and gave General Patton an edge that he exploited to the fullest degree imaginable.

You talk about the war’s end and how we helped rebuild our defeated foe’s industry and homes. You talk about Audie Murphy, because he was your childhood hero, and when you grew up you wanted to take the same Oath he took, and you did.

And then you talk about the day the country died, the day that the Constitution was put out of mind, labeled as an “outdated meaningless 300-year-old document,” the day that LTC Terry Lakin was given a court-martial for asking to see the proof of his president’s eligibility, to see a real honest-to-goodness Birth Certificate. You close with the fact that, here it is, 35 years later and still nobody knows who this Obama character was.

    Dear Larry,
    Amen, my Brother in Arms, my Fellow Veteran who volunteered to serve his country with Honor and Respect.
    We are remorseful for the stolen time of contemplation of yesterdays’ glories, achievements and, yes, follies, for we were young and didn’t know any better, but we knew enough to love our Homeland and our Constitution, which made it all (Freedom) possible, and now, instead of quiet contemplation, we are in the midst of active warfare, trying desperately to inform our fellow citizens it’s better to die by a bullet through the heart than by a stab in the back, which is EXACTLY what is about to happen to each and every American irrespective of race, creed, color, or whether you are one dumb Obot.
    I wish it weren’t so, but each of us is a cry for help in the wilderness of ignorance, of “Occupiers”, of sloth and pigs feeding at the trough of “Entitlements”, which is just another name for “Surrender”: I hereby trade my integrity for a Government check.
    We didn’t take that deal, and here I am, part American Indian and not once did I EVER check the box “American Indian” as if I’m due any special favors, or entitlements, or affirmative action. How utterly degrading. I’m an American, that’s all ANYBODY ever needs to know.
    And I will, SO HELP ME GOD, as you, Larry, stand by my Oath.

    And on this Day, “A MOMENT OF SILENCE”, PLEASE for ALL of the Gallant Warriors and Shipmates that have made “The ULTIMATE SACRIFICE for GOD and COUNTRY”, and provided for U.S. ALL “The Freedom and Liberty” we enjoy.
    I am deeply saddened by my Memories of my Country and those that gave ALL, only to watch my Country being DESTROYED by SOCIALISM, COMMUNISM, DESPOTISM and the DESPAIR that we all are suffering as we enter the “Twilight Zone of “‘DA United SOCIALIST STATES ov OBAMA!”
    May GOD Provide for us ALL~

    Greta Van Susteren last night talking about the inability to organize our financial house, and at the same time, watching the putative Chief Executive run off on a 4 million dollar vacation to Hawaii..” We look pathetic to the rest of the world.”

    Obama shows disdain for the Nation he purports to lead using psychological passive-aggressivity.

    Any redblooded American president would forgo the glitz and self indulgence and “WORK.” He’d be solving the FEMA problem for Sandy Storm victims. He’d be burning the midnight oil to solve America’s financial mess.

    As he does not really have Constitutional authority, but claims all the privileges imbued thereof, he wipes America’s face in his insolence.
