It has little to do with the biased media. They are merely a tool, gripped powerfully by unseen hands with evil intent. It has much more to do with the behind-the-scenes puppetmasters, and their passively receptive audience.
During her two-century-plus history, America has faced many threats -- domestic, foreign, moral, military, economic …
The integrity, and unbridled courage, of the majority of her citizenry – whether they be in leadership positions, or ‘average Joes’ -- has always paved the way to victory over hardship and tragedy. And that same integrity and courage has always sought and succeeded in achieving the preservation of liberty.
I believe past historical precedent is no longer valid. I believe we have reached critical mass ...
... for four basic reasons:
For what I believe is the first time in our history, the majority of our ‘leadership’ in Washington bears more allegiance to an agenda, or a cadre of special interest groups, than it does to the liberty, safety and sovereignty of our republic and its people.
Take a good look at our ‘leaders’ in Washington. Do you trust the majority of them? I mean trust them to make the weighty decisions about the direction in which our republic is moving, and the momentous, no-turning-back decisions that will determine how, when and where we will face our enemies?
Surely we have experienced corruption, and self-serving or agenda-driven policymaking, on the federal level before. But never to this degree. And never by as many people in power who hold both our proud national heritage and our Constitution in utter disdain.
I believe that the allegiance of the majority in power (both republicans and democrats) lies more in the amassing of personal or political power, the realization of left-leaning, globally-oriented political agendas, and the desire to please powerful special interest groups, than it does in honoring their oath of allegiance to this country and its people.
And the average American is simply too busy to pay much attention to the dangerously unprecedented erosion in the character, motives and allegiance of his leadership in Washington.
Just take a look at the past political and personal history of the current front-runner for the presidency in 2008. Hillary Clinton was an integral part of her husband’s eight-year administration. From all reliable accounts, she may as well have been co-president. She had intimate knowledge of all, and played a role in most, of the decisions made, and crimes committed, during her husband’s entire political career.
The accomplishments of William Jefferson Clinton’s two terms in office represented the most evil, treasonous, criminal era in American history. The repercussions of his (and her) criminality and treason have left permanent, potentially deadly, scars on this nation. They have sold our land and secrets to the highest bidder, armed our ideological enemies, and emboldened those who seek our annihilation.
A careful study of their crimes and their motives paints a picture of two megalomaniacal people who place no value on truth, who believe themselves to be above the law, and who disdain everything that America’s Founders held sacred.
I assume that most readers here are aware of at least the majority of the Clintons’ crimes/borderline crimes and treasonous activities. And yet the average American voter either (1) hasn’t cared enough to learn about them over the past decade, (2) knows about them and considers them irrelevant, or (3) has forgotten them.
As a result, the co-conspirator in all of the above may well become the leader of the free world in eighteen months.
I believe that the reason for this sorry state of affairs rests in the fact that character and integrity no longer sit at the top of the list of leadership prerequisites. The desire to be ‘taken care of’ does.
Enter elitist rule (which bears no allegiance to our republic), stage left.
For what I believe is the first time in our history, our public education system is geared, more than it is not, toward indoctrination of America’s youth so as to raise succeeding generations who are (a) ignorant (and possibly even ashamed) of the glorious history of western civilization, (b) incapable of serious critical or analytical thought, (c) disdainful of earned prosperity and the pillars of capitalism, and (d) infused with beliefs about bogus environmental concerns, multicultural dogma, and phony ‘tolerance’ issues ... while at the same time virtually ignorant in the academic subjects upon which a free society must be based.
Our public education system has found itself incrementally hijacked by socialist/Marxist-leaning decision-makers over the past fifty-plus years. Children indoctrinated as mentioned above are much more likely to be submissive to government control, and much less likely to see America as historically unique, or deserving of pride …and defense.
The federal Department of Education (which conservative politicians have promised to abolish for decades), and the state education departments, continuously hand down more stringent left-leaning guidelines under which teachers must teach. America’s teachers are told, by leftist decision-makers who care little about the quality of local education, what and how to teach. And if the content of the what, or the method of the how, is something that a dedicated master teacher knows to be lies (as in the case of revisionist history and the politically-motivated theory of global warming, just to name two of dozens of bogus disciplines), that teacher risks the ruination of his career, should he refuse to teach his charges that which he knows to be untrue.
The NEA and the AFT are two of the most influential lobbying organizations in Washington, and, over the past five decades, their agenda has both eroded the quality of public education and the recognition and rewarding of teachers of merit, and increased the stranglehold that Washington has over decisions that should be made by American citizens at the local level. Children’s best interests, and their future as responsible, productive citizens, have taken a definite back seat to the promoting of a leftist agenda, and the entrenchment of lackluster teachers, bogus curricula, and mediocre teaching methods.
In addition to playing a primary role in the decline in public school education, the NEA (the association to which more than ninety percent of the teachers who teach our children belong) actively pursues non-educational leftist social agendas, and they financially support such groups as NOW, the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, and People for the American Way. Both directly and indirectly, financially and philosophically, the NEA supports abortion on demand, Planned Parenthood, federally-funded child care from birth through third grade, school-based healthcare and family planning services, gun control, environmentalism, the normalization of homosexuality, children’s access to all media and material including pornography, and an increased role of the UN in American affairs, especially as regards children.
Attend a local school board meeting someday and you will see just how concerned the average American parent is about this dangerous decline in the quality and direction of their child’s education. Unless an increase in taxes, or termination of a sports program, is on the agenda, you will be pretty safe in assuming that the number of parents in attendance is at or near zero.
And American colleges and universities, with few exceptions, have become nothing more than leftist indoctrination centers, with the study of the glorious history of western civilization now either banned or ‘revised’, and replaced by emphasis on neo-Marxist philosophy, reverence for ‘multiculturalism’, and a general disdain for anything American or capitalist – while, at the same time, ‘feel good’ courses have made large inroads in displacing in-depth study of the genuine arts and sciences.
The American voting populace is reaching critical mass. The complexion of the electorate is changing so dramatically that the ‘average American’ as you and I know him – the honest, hard-working American who comprehends the roots of our republican form of government and wants to preserve it at all costs -- will soon become a minority participant in all elections.
The machinations of those in office who seek power over their countrymen have seen to it that three elements of our society are growing exponentially, and the combination of those three will eventually dictate the direction in which we head as a nation: (a) the ever-increasing number of illegals (thousands of them invading this country every day), whose ‘rights’ are championed by those who know that there is power in numbers, and who are refusing to stem those numbers so as to increase their political power, (b) the ever-increasing proportion of the citizenry that has been purposely diverted from the truth by bread and circuses, and purposefully ‘dumbed down’ by the aforementioned educational establishment, and (c) the ever-increasing number of people who are dependent on the burgeoning entitlement/nanny state for their very existence.
All three groups portend ever-increasing ballot-box power for the political elite, and a deeper sink into the quicksand of tyranny by a burgeoning majority that bears no resemblance to the former, and soon-to-be-overshadowed, ‘heartland of America’. We are about to be displaced by millions of voters who have no idea what made America great … nor do they care. They simply want to reap the benefits of more than two centuries of selfless sacrifice freely and courageously offered by those who must now be looking down upon us through tears of grief over what we have done with our precious inheritance.
For the first time in our history, we are facing an external enemy with uniquely defined characteristics. It is not contained within a distinct border. It has many faces. It is far more vile, bloodthirsty, obsessed, and powerful than even the most educated and informed of us are able to comprehend.
And many of our leaders either do not recognize the historically (throughout the history of mankind) unprecedented threat that this enemy poses, or they choose to minimize that threat for reasons that can only be explained under the heading of ignorance or treason.
Our ‘leaders’ more often than not re-define or bury the truth, when it threatens to interfere with their agenda or decrease what they see as deserved power ... even when standing face-to-face with this malevolence.
I daresay that, in America 2007, the majority in congress consider the Constitutionally-granted liberties of their constituents, the lives of their countrymen, the sovereignty of this republic, and the sanctity of the Constitution they have sworn to uphold and defend, negotiable … under the right circumstances.
None of the above four circumstances has ever existed before in the history of our republic. Not to the degree that they exist now. All four of them are expanding. And any one of them can potentially bring America down.
The frog is starting to sweat ... and wondering why.
