While bloggers here and elsewhere focus their rhetoric on either President Obama or Mitt Romney or the Race for the White House, few focus on Congress and fewer on the Senate. Let me try to briefly and tersely describe why this all is so darned important. I mean, this is even more important than Dancing With the Stars, The Bachelorette, and American Idol . . . combined!
Further, while Teddy Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson and Franklin Delano Roosevelt were flaming progressives, and Lyndon Baines Johnson and Richard Nixon and Jimmy Carter and both Bushes, along with Bill Clinton were, say, smoking progressives — so believing devoutly in situational government as opposed to constitutional government, so believing in government control of the people rather than people control of the government, so most-though-not-all also believing in redistribution of wealth and equality of outcomes rather than equality of opportunity — we now have Barack Hussein Obama (umm umm umm). This is a horse of a different color. ( I wanted here to make it even easier for folks to call me “racist”.)
Dinesh D’Souza, speaking at CPAC earlier this year previewed a film coming at this Summer. In it he contrasts Obama with his progressive presidential predecessors.
This President of the United States is, yes, turtle-atop-the-fencepost frontman for an oligarchy of the most powerful individuals alive. He has progressive ideology. He is also influenced and mentored by Saul Alinsky and Coward & Piven on rules for radicals and how to implode a system. He’s been propped and prodded by a Communist mentor in Hawaii in his youth, by terrorists Bernadine Dohrn and Bill Ayers, and by anti-American Reverend Wright.
At the Obama core, however, he is the product of his adoption of dreams from his father. His father was surely a Communist and wanted said for Kenya. He was also, however, and not uniquely so for a “non-westerner”, anti-colonial. By most in Asia, the Middle East, Africa, and South America, the countries of France and Holland and the Brits and the Americans are seen to be the colonialist enemy. It has been they who have plundered the rest of the world, subjugating them, raping their natural resources, plundering their people.
It is this truth that Congressman Ron Paul has alluded to, albeit badly and to his serious detriment. Barack Hussein Obama’s dream from his father is to implode capitalism in favor of Communism, and to implode the United States so that it is in the very same boat as the countries of Asia and the Middle East and Africa and South America. Not mere equality of outcome among Americans. Equality of outcome among the Peoples of the world.
For those who understand how capitalism and free markets work in the context of the unalienable rights to, say, life, to liberty, and to property, and who also understand how Communism works, given adequate historical reflection and review, it becomes clear that Barack Hussein Obama (umm umm umm) intends to take America to somewhere just (metaphorically) north of Bangladesh and Haiti.
It is my sense that many Americans have become — if not completely understanding — at least nervous about this President and where he is trying to take us. Most are unclear whether it is result of incompetence or intent. As a guy who on a number of earlier and much-earlier occasions has opined that it is over, game-set-match, fat lady has sung, exit stage left, I ask here and now, even if President Obama is thwarted and defeated in his bid for a second term, can America survive the fiscal and monetary and political deathtrap into which it has placed itself? Is the life and the liberty of anyone with property in America even remotely safe from what’s inevitable?
