I am afraid for America.
The democrat party has just effectively nominated a man for the office of President of the United States ... leader of the free world ... who despises individual freedom, who envisions capitalism as a virulent cancer, who considers white people an enemy to be contained and overpowered, who sees government as a beneficent god, who places no value on right and truth, and who sees himself as a savior embarked on a crusade whose ends justify whatever means necessary.
‘The democrat party’ has nominated Barack Obama. Not the American people who define themselves as democrats. The party itself is to-the-bone corrupt – not only as regards its wolf-in-sheep’s-clothing policies and platforms, but also in its methods of defining itself and choosing its leadership. The democrat party's nominating process has become so convoluted (primarily, but not exclusively, via the introduction of ‘super-delegates’) as to render the votes of ‘average Americans’ meaningless. ‘Super-delegates’ are the nominating process’s equivalent of federal judges. They are appointed gods, whose purpose is to declare null and void the will of the people, should that will run contrary to the will of the party puppet-masters.
But I digress -- and foolishly, too, since I don’t give a rat’s patoot how ridiculously unfair the democrat party is to its adherents. Let the party implode ... or explode ... or spontaneously combust ... or bicker itself into oblivion. Any such demise would represent a victory for freedom, no matter the form it takes.
Barack Obama has aligned himself all of his adult life with people who judge others by the color of their skin – people who consider blacks as oppressed and whites as oppressors.
Barack Obama has aligned himself all of his adult life with people who consider America to be a society whose national character is defined by the (sometimes brutal) accumulation of power over other civilizations, the pillaging of the environment, and the worshipping of greedy capitalist doctrine -- which, by definition, is inherently evil.
Barack Obama has aligned himself all of his adult life with people who believe that government (defined as a self-appointed elite group of pseudo-altruists) is the solution to the rampant greed and baseness that result from individual freedom. Freedom must be restrained in deference to a perverted concept of ‘equality’. And government is the only viable ‘restrainer’.
Barack Obama has aligned himself all of his adult life with people who believe in ‘villages’ rather than individuals. Call it Marxism, if you like. Or collectivism. Or socialism. Whatever words you choose, paint the individual in your portrait as seated in a hard, rigid, straight-back chair, under a merciless glaring light, with shackles around his wrists and ankles, answering to a government interrogator who demands mediocrity and compliance.
Barack Obama has aligned himself all of his adult life with people who believe that material success, in both the business and individual realms, is evidence of moral decay and lack of compassion for one’s fellow man – unless said material success is enjoyed by a member of the ruling elite, in which case it is simply evidence of an innate cultural superiority -- a necessary trapping in order to distinguish the elite from the masses.
Barack Obama has aligned himself all of his adult life with people who preach tolerance and brotherly love, yet who speak pejoratively about, and, in extreme cases, seek to punish, those who do not share their views. Psychoanalyzing, and demonizing, ‘the opposition’ (i.e., individualistic, freedom-loving Americans) has been honed into a veritable art form. Obama and his ilk have developed the enviable ability to quack like a duck without being mistaken for one.
Barack Obama has aligned himself all of his adult life with people who have little or no comprehension of the history and foundations of America, but who are extraordinarily gifted in using words. In Obama’s world, glibness and charisma occupy a significantly higher plane than do historical fact and personal integrity. Nebulous, poetic verbiage has assumed much more power and value than facts and deeply-held principles, and the honest interpretation of their relevance.
There are many more examples of the less-than-stellar qualities of ‘friends of Barack’, but I’d like to make another (more important?) point before I lose you.
That such a man would rise to the top of America’s political leadership is reason for deep concern.
That half of the American electorate is considering electing him president in November is evidence of the ignorance that is rampant among the American electorate.
Of course there are those among us who actually believe in the leftist, racist, elitist, anti-liberty, anti-capitalist doctrine that is at the core of Barack Obama’s political philosophy. And their votes are every bit as legitimate as yours and mine.
But, for every American voter who casts a vote for Obama truly understanding his political philosophy, there will be ten others who vote for him because they are ignorant (i.e., destitute of knowledge or education) about what that philosophy represents, and the evil, destructive repercussions it will portend for us all.
And you can bet that (1) the ‘academics’ whose charge it is to teach our young people in America’s colleges and universities, (2) those in decision-making positions in the mainstream media, and (3) those who choose to use their stage/screen/music/sports celebrity beyond their intellectual ability to do so, will be doing their best to ensure that the ignorance quotient of the American electorate remains intact, at least through November 4th.
Every now and then, there are those who point to a political figure and whisper the term ‘anti-Christ’. I always tend to view such label-affixers with a large degree of suspicion and skepticism.
Yet there are other ‘anti’ labels that fill me with real and significant dread. I am proud of my white, Anglo-Saxon ancestry. I value human liberty. I respect success ... achievement ... rugged individualism ... capitalist doctrine ... and limited, Constitutional government. And I despise any man seeking national office whose political philosophy seeks to limit or destroy all of the above.
Barack Obama is such a man, and I am afraid for America.
