Only the Weak Follow Obama?

Only the Weak Follow Obama?

If you have been considering voting for Barack Obama in November, there is an article, which I found at Canada Free Press, you must read. The article is by Ron Ewart and it is titled: “Obama Appeals to Man’s Weakness”.

Mr. Ewart is the President, of the National Association of Rural Landowners, which is an organization, dedicated to re-establish, preserve, protect and defend property rights. The article I refer to is highly recommended by IoF and you can find it at:


I particularly like the way Mr. Ewart lays bare the Obama promises for what they are and… in doing so… unveils the weakness in those who follow the man as if he were a god, a messiah, if you will, a savior come to rescue Americans from themselves.

Mr. Ewart reminds Americans of who we are and from whence we came and how our forefathers set this nation up with a foundational constitution which guarantees us the opportunity to seek a better life, a successful life, by preserving, protecting, and defending our individual liberties so that we might succeed, gloriously, or fail miserably, only to be able to rise, once again, from that miserable failure to try, yet again, at succeeding.

Nowhere does this nation’s constitution guarantee our success at anything we attempt. It guarantees us nothing but liberty. In fact, Mr. Ewart says: “America’s Constitution was not a contract to feed you, or provide you with a job, or “free” health care, that is anything but free. In fact, the Constitution makes no such promise or guarantee.” He is absolutely correct!

And yet weak Americans are falling down and worshipping at the feet of a man who promises all these things… things he cannot deliver, in our opinion, without changing the fundamental way America operates. To do that he may find it necessary to toss out the constitution, which has served this nation so well it has insured that we are, unarguably, the most successful nation on the globe today... and the most successful nation in the history of mankind. But, wait! Obama promises “CHANGE”. He doesn’t say what KIND of change, now does he?

Step back for a moment and look at the “big picture”, as they say, and it becomes clear. In our opinion, here at IoF, If his words are to be believed, his intention appears to be replaceing Capitalist America with Socialist America. Beguiled by his eloquent oratory the weak among America’s throng are engorging themselves on his flowery phrases and blindly following him straight into the bowels of hell down a path paved with socialist, propaganda!

Winston Churchill once referred to socialism as the “gospel of envy”. And that is what Obama is appears to be preaching. Envy. What else do you call it when he implores the weak among us to envy what the more fortunate have? It sure sounds as if that is what Obama is doing. It goes against Biblical instruction, even. It is “covetousness”. Does anyone remember the commandment: “Thou shalt not covet.” There is nothing wrong with surveying the more fortunate and determining, within yourself, to do everything within your power to raise yourself from your current less fortunate status and equal, or surpass, the status of your more fortunate fellow American. In fact, conservative Americans promote THAT approach to success endlessly.

A free online dictionary defines Liberalism as: “A political theory founded on the natural goodness of humans and the autonomy of the individual and favoring civil and political liberties, government by law with the consent of the governed, and protection from arbitrary authority”. Webster’s goes a bit further: “A theory in economics emphasizing individual freedom from restraint and usually based on free competition, the self-regulating market, and the gold standard; a political philosophy based on belief in progress, the essential goodness of the human race, and the autonomy of the individual and standing for the protection of political and civil liberties."

So why is this definition, in our opinion, not reflected in Obama's oratorical "ascensions", nor even Hillary's, for that matter… and take it even farther… why is it not reflected by the Democratic Party? Because they are not true liberals! They have been corrupted by raw political power. They are reflecting the Socialist philosophy/theology! At the moment, chief among them is… Obama!
