We (some of us) still hold these truths. Like the frog in a pot of slowly heating water, some of you are unaware of your pending demise.
“William F. Buckley Jr. asked in an essay, “If you lived in a declining society, could you know it?” By the time the Roman Empire died in 476 AD, few noticed, few cared and few stood up to do anything about it. If you look at America today, we can find strikingly similar events that eventually collapsed the Romans. “ (1)
Gandhi and MLK were categorically different from Obama. Obama is an Alinsky-trained community organizer (and a skilled trainer of trainer) – akin to Trotsky and Hitler – whose end goals justify his means; lying and even violence (e.g. Bill Ayers, Black Panthers, Fast & Furious, killing Americans remotely with Predators, Homeland Security contracts for impersonating others to spy on social media users) are permitted to achieve his end goals. Obama does not hold these self-evident truths which are the founding principles of this country; he finds these truths anachronistic and colonial, impediments to his version of progress and he insists on changing them even if his doing so is illegal, and he consistently hypocritically apologizes for the America which enabled him to his position. On the other hand, for Gandhi and MLK the ends did not justify the means; lying and violence were unacceptable. Gandhi and MLK were of course martyred for their peaceful beliefs. It would be a shame if Obama was martyred for his disbelief.
A study conducted at the University of Florida (2) finds that “political polarization in the U.S. has remained largely unchanged over the past four decades. The perception that the country is sharply divided into factions fighting hammer and tong exists only among those with strong party affiliation. The majority of Americans see a far rosier, more benign picture.” Politicians and community organizers throw red meat at the masses to increase their power. Citizens have to throw it back at them to keep our values and way of life.
The response of our Alinsky-trained community organizer in chief is not to unify but to divide the community, dividing Americans against ourselves and dividing Americans from our usual allies, in order to conquer, to agitate, demagogue, create, embellish and leverage crisis, and pit one part of the community against another and through organized resistance to dismantle America (e.g. ACORN, SEIU, Van Jones and Occupy Wall Street.)
Thomas Sowell is correct in this video on Obama and Bush and the dangerous corrosion of values in America. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=5SDLBqIubCs
The decline and fall of America rests in our hands. There is only one way out and we are the ones that must lead us out and reverse the decline. We must eliminate political correctness from our lives and replace it with individual responsibility. We must fear not to speak out against every day injustices, attacks and corruption of our morals, values, principles, and personal responsibility. Unfortunately, the government will try with all their might to erode the values of the public, to make our nation believe what they are pushing is the new norm, the multi-cultural new world order. We defy their disdain for the good in America. As Sowell says so well, “If it’s not stopped now, it won’t be stopped.”
In addition to Sowell’s excellent comments on Obama’s community organization in the video at the link above, this piece by Sowell in National Review is on the same subject. http://www.nationalreview.com/articles/227962/post-racial-president/thomas-sowell I read and listen to everything I can find from Sowell.
“What does a community organizer do? What he does not do is organize a community. What he organizes are the resentments and paranoia within a community, directing those feelings against other communities, from whom either benefits or revenge are to be gotten, using whatever rhetoric or tactics will accomplish that purpose. To think that someone who has spent years promoting grievance and polarization was going to bring us all together as president is a triumph of wishful thinking over reality.” ~ Thomas Sowell
All compromise is based on give and take, but there can be no give and take on fundamentals. Any compromise on mere fundamentals is a surrender. For it is all give and no take. Mahatma Gandhi
