Obama Fortuna

I am tired of having to COPE and CRINGE every time I hear “HOPE AND CHANGE.”

This has become more than just a campaign slogan from the opposition. It has become a klaxon, a red alert, a call to arms. In fact, every time I hear Barack Hussein Obama speak, I seem to always hear, loud and clear, the O Fortuna movement from Orff’s Carmina Burana.


Its ominously emotional tones seem to perfectly go with the words BHO speaks at his rallies. I really became concerned since the piece was based on 13th century manuscript collection by clergy and students who wrote it to satirize the church. Did I mention that it was composed in 1930s Germany?

Click play to the video below and listen (you’ll recognize it after a few moments):


The following is an English translation of the lyrics of O Fortuna. Click play again and read while you listen:

O Fortune,
like the moon
you are constantly changing,
ever growing
and waning;
hateful life
now oppresses
and then soothes
as fancy takes it;
poverty
and power
it melts them like ice.

Fate - monstrous
and empty,
you whirling wheel,
you are malevolent,
well-being is vain
and always fades to nothing,
shadowed
and veiled
you plague me too;
now through the game
I bring my bare back
to your villainy.

Fate, in health
and virtue,
is against me
driven on
and weighted down,
always enslaved.
So at this hour
without delay
pluck the vibrating strings;
since Fate
strikes down the strong man,
everyone weep with me!

You can very easily hear liberty being smothered in those words. They are a very appropriate homage to what Obama really stands for.

Obama places himself in the light as a deity of destiny. Yet like the goddess of fate, Obama is seen as a symbol of blessing to some and one of capricious demagoguery to others.

The evidence is in how each of us hears the following quote from Obama: "I have become a symbol of the possibility of America returning to our best traditions."


What is it that self-induces a monolithic epidemic of his highness’ perceived worth to the people of this nation? Who else spoke like this in history?

King Saul, Nero, Mehmed II, Ivan, Napoleon… and of course, Adolph Hitler.

And like those incarnates of evil, Barack Hussein Obama will DEMAND your money, your service, and your freedoms while commanding your love, your intellect, and your unswervingly blind devotion.

All you have to do is look at the droves of followers he draws. They remind me of the religious fanatics who refuse to think for themselves in Monty Python’s Life of Brian. They latch on to a person rather than ideal.

And that is the danger.

The issues are again ignored in favor of an idol. It seems that more and more people tend to think that as long as the idol gets the go ahead, the issues will be resolved. The only time that happens is in totalitarian governments. And the result was the lsot of liberty and even life for the citizenry.

Look at the greatness that America is. Has there ever been a time when our nation’s success has been affected by ANYTHING Obama and the current democratic leadership is touting?

This great country has again and again risen to greatness because of how its people deal with the issues of the respective times. From our struggle for independence to the Civil War and into the unknown of manifest destiny, it has been about how individuals mattered to the greater good. Even the semi-socialist, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, knew that it was about the people and the circumstances they faced and not himself. And it was the people of this nation that rose up to agonizingly overcome the great depression or sacrificed in commitment to helping defeat fascism in World War Two. Even though I, along with my fellow conservatives, repeatedly reminisce about how great Ronald Wilson Reagan was, it wasn’t because of whom he was inasmuch as it was about how he motivated (NOT INSPIRED) action among us to take responsibility for what America needed from us. Today’s democrats seem to forget what one of their own promulgated; “As not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country!”

Obama and his liberal contemporaries not only want you to look to the government for all your answers but want to make sure that you will not have any other resource to access….including yourself.

As you can tell, I have not spent this time promoting John McCain. I have been trying to convey to you the utter disaster Obama would be for our nation. I sincerely long for you to hear that klaxon of danger like I do.

Call him what you will – Obamanation, Obamanable, Czarbama, Obamaramalamadingdong – he represents a clear and present danger to the future of this country. He wants each American to cut back on personal luxuries and even needs. We are to turn down our heaters in winter and turn the thermostat up during summer. We are to inflate our tires more to save gas. We are to control our eating habits. These things seem to be common sense to most of us. But we usually do them on our own terms under our own discretion. Once Barry boy gets into the presidential residence (You know he’ll change the name of the building), those will be things that will be mandatory and we will suffer fines and punishment if we don’t. Obama wants a national civilian security force that will be just as strong and powerful as our current armed forces. And you know service in this will be mandatory as well.

The last time stuff like this was done in the world, the language spoken was GERMAN!

Make no mistake. An Obama administration will be the first step to fascism and a nation of obsolete men.

If you can’t vote FOR McCain, please, please vote AGAINST Obama.
