A commentary by J. D. Longstreet
Ayn Rand once wrote: “The spread of evil is the symptom of a vacuum. Whenever evil wins, it is only by default: by the moral failure of those who evade the fact that there can be no compromise on basic principles.”
There is no principle more basic than the freedom and liberty America is founded upon. But today that principle is under attack by Obama and his czars and czarinas and his fellow socialists in the Democratic Party. Their socialist agenda for America must be stopped and reversed if we are to live as free Americans.
I have written a number of times that the new republican House of Representatives must not compromise with the liberal-socialist democrats on anything.
I have an aversion to socialism, which goes to my core. Socialism is slavery. It is the enemy of freedom even more important it is the enemy of God.
In November of 2009, a year ago, I wrote the following:
“Back in 1935, or so, FDR, a democrat, introduced socialism to America with his New Deal. America has never been able to extricate itself from the New Deal. It is still with us today.
As hard as it is to fathom, there are millions of Americans today educated in America’s public schools who have no idea what socialism is. As the democrat party controls our public school system, the courses taught are favorable to socialism. American “scholars” are not taught that socialism is a cancer, which will eat away the core of a capitalist nation by simply removing any desire of the citizens to advance their station in life. It squashes all ambition to live better, to make more money, to manufacture better goods, to offer better services, to do/say/produce anything in which one could exhibit pride either in themselves or their country.
How can this be? Well, socialism demands the end of private enterprise. Under socialism there would be no small businesses, no Mom and Pop stores, no entrepreneurs. Socialism demands the redistribution of wealth. That means taking the money you earned and giving it to those who did not earn it. Socialism demands that all wealth in a nation, and that includes yours, will be controlled by the government. In other words, you will own nothing --- not even your own money. The government owns everything and everyone is given only what is necessary for that person to survive. Socialism celebrates the lack of an upper class and a lower class. Under socialism there is only one class. And in THAT class all people SUFFER equally.
It would seem that America has made the decision to turn it’s back on everything good the forbearers made and sacrificed to give us… an America, unique in all the world, and in all the world’s history.
What, then, is America about to do?
America is about to join the mediocrity of the remainder of the world. No longer desirous of the leadership role, no longer willing to do the heavy lifting required by freedom, America has decided to join the pack of “has been” nations now embarrassed by their past glory years.
If I am right, and I am convinced that I am, we have begun the” Post-America” period in world history. Which leads to the burning question, at least for me. That question is: after America, who will lead the world?”
Today, we live in a world created by Obama. His socialist dream, his socialist agenda for America, is apparent everywhere. It is, indeed, a “Post America” world.
True Americans will not like what is coming. In this Post America world, created by Obama and his henchmen, America is stripped bare before the world awaiting the onslaught of the barbarians. And believe me, they are coming and it will be terrible.
The most mysterious man to ever stride into the Oval Office remains a man of deep secrets. Americans still, to this day, do not even know WHO Obama really is. During his current trip abroad, he was referred to by one of the dignitaries as a fellow Kenyan! Could it be? Who knows for certain? I am convinced that if Americans knew the truth about Obama it would trigger the worst constitutional crisis in America’s history.
Look, war is just over the horizon. I am not referring to the current wars in which America is involved. I mean a nuclear holocaust triggered by a NEW axis of evil: Iran, China, and Russia.
While Obama pretends to be against Iran developing a nuclear bomb, it is plain to those of us who observe his machinations, sometimes referred to as “foreign policy,” his heart just isn’t in it. In effect, he is allowing Iran to acquire the atomic bomb while reducing America’s atomic arsenal -- an arsenal we will need when the bombs begin to fall on Israel and America’s cities.
America made a humongous mistake in electing Obama to the Presidency. It is a mistake for which we are only just beginning to pay.
Yes, this is Obama’s world -- a Post America world, an impotent America at the mercy of the our enemies circling in the dark, fangs bared, waiting, just waiting for the moment to pounce.
With a strong America acting as the policeman of the world such a scenario was impossible. No longer. Now it is imminently possible, and extremely likely. In fact, I would go so far as to say it is a given.
