The following is edited and updated based on my remarks and predictions given at the Heading Right Convention Night on Tuesday, August 26, 2008.
Barack Obama has proven me right as a rapacious demagogue. And as with most demagogues under the banner of liberalism, the issues are again being ignored in favor of an idol. It seems that more and more people tend to think that as long as that idol gets the power, the issues will be resolved. Consequently, the only time that happens is in totalitarian governments. And the result is the loss of liberty and even life. At the rate our government is going by trying to solve everything by giving itself more power, what it does for you and I won’t really matter.
The democrats have taken, and are continuing to take, increasing power to manage the government, the states, the counties, the towns, the homes…and even the individual. Barack Obama and his contemporaries not only want you to look to the government for all of your answers but also want to make sure that you will not have any non-governmental resources or entities to access…. including yourself.
Barack Obama, the true Barack Obama, has shown who he really is as president: a man who was raised with the familial and institutional teachings of Islam, a man who was mentored by Marxists he now emulates, a man who still thinks that evil dictators can be convinced to behave by either ignoring them or reaching out with a fist unclenched, a man with the most liberal voting record in American history.
The vote for the Obama presidency has proven to be the immediate and resounding vote:
- FOR Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Vladimir Putin, Kim Jong-il, and Hugo Rafael Chávez Frías
- FOR abortion on demand, the eradication of traditional marriage and family, and the elimination of freedom of religion
- FOR a weak national security and defense
- FOR a healthcare system that will kill more people that it will truly and fully help
- FOR further American dependence on other nations for energy and resources and a cessation to utilizing the guaranteed resources we already have.
- FOR a maliciously permanent change in the right of citizens to bear arms
- FOR a realistic resurgence of communism as a potential form of government in this country
Alexander Hamilton said, “A nation which can prefer disgrace to danger is prepared for a master, and deserves one.” And by voting for “CHANGE,” America chose disgrace on Election Day and more and more, a master (by his own import) IS now what we have in the White House.
On May 30, 1985, at Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia, Ronald Reagan said, “Our forefathers fought a revolution for two reasons: to give liberty to a naturally independent people and to secure, in the words of a Burgess who met here, ‘...Prosperity in the Community and Security to Individuals.’ The idea of freedom impelled them; it intoxicated them. And it is freedom that impels us still.”
The destiny of this nation is the wine distilled from the grapes of wrath, fermented in the vintage of sweet liberty. Liberty is meant to be a Blessing….and yet, WE THE PEOPLE are letting those who govern us treat liberty like a curse.
Forget your political ideologies and put those things that endear you to the idols that seek power under a shroud of Constitutional scrutiny. It is time again for the government to be by the people, of the people, and most importantly FOR THE PEOPLE!
Take action now. Call, write or email your local, county, state and federal representatives and promise them, regardless of their political affiliation, that unless they will cede the true power of our republic back to who it belongs – THE PEOPLE – you will do your best to rally against them, or anyone who would presume to emulate them politically, at the ballot box.
`Tis America I love
E’er the talons of the hawk
And the gentleness of the dove
With freedom’s banner I walk.
And I will stand with her people
In angst ridden toil or at carefree play,
And on my knees under the steeple
For God’s Blessings will I pray.
`Lo storm clouds of tyranny are near
They try to blind what I see
And deafen what I hear.
And put heavy chains on me.
If I fall under the burden of chains
There is still a truth clear to me
Even of me when nothing remains
My patriots heart will forever be free.
This nation’s beauty isn’t just that which is from sea to shining sea
The true beauty in this great nation is liberty for you and me.
