As the DOW dips lower, I have been frantically searching the Internet for a glimmer of good news. However, with Obama at the helm and our country on the brink all I keep finding is the bad news. On Drudge yesterday, there was a seemingly innocuous story that 50,000 people in New York City were protesting budget cuts.
As I read the story, written by CBS's Hazel Sanchez, I learned that labor groups, community agitators, and more likely than not, ACORN was out in full force. They were asking for "Fair Tax Reform", which in "Obamaspeak" means another generous handout from Joe Taxpayer. They demanded that taxpayers making over $250,000 a year accept a tax increase to support their lack of desire or inability to take care of themselves.
Wealth distribution as a general principle annoys me, but as I read more of this article, I realized how this economic downturn in America is going to get alot worse.
As the country's economy falls further down the latrine, we are going to see more and more of these protests. The poor will be protesting the rich, and the culmination of Obama's class warfare will be brought to bear. To better illustrate this, we need to go back and look at Obama's past.
The man that used to have a Che Guevara poster on his wall knows that in order to seize total power, he needs to create chaos. He is good buddies with William Ayers, a renown, unrepentant terrorist that states to this day he felt using explosives against the Federal government was justified. Like all good socialist dictators before him, and with Saul Alinsky's guide to "Socialism for Dummies" in his hands, we can expect Obama to escalate this class warfare and these protests against the "rich" to his advantage.
As the unemployment numbers rise and the stock market falls, look for more agressive media coverage of these "protests". Based on the protests we had recently in Oakland, CA against the police who shot an unarmed black man, look for these protests to turn increasingly violent. Every good socialist authoritarian needs his Reichstag, and Obama is no different. When the timing is right, this radical in the White House will use the economic chaos to force more extreme policy down the throats of Americans.
Like many of you out there, I am deeply frightened about the path that the country is headed down. We have in power a group of individuals that are seemingly intent on destroying the very basis of this country. They are attempting to solidify their power and remake our great Republic into some European based socialist non-superpower.
The most frightening part about this is that most Americans feel powerless to stop this. This is no accident. Socialism is not something that can be sprung on a culture overnight. It is something that is methodically and slowly woven into the fabric of a culture over time, with the objective being that by the time it is brought to bear, it seems like the only ideology that is acceptable. The left has had many teachers such as Stalin, Lenin, Castro, and most recently, Chavez. Liberals have embraced the teachings of Saul Alinsky, and have embedded themselves in this country’s great institutions. Taking our country back will not be easy, but it can be done.
The left has employed many weapons in its battle to destroy
My liberal left family member, without any non-emotional based arguments, immediately tried to brand me as a racist. This tactic is used often by far left figures such as Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, and in the past few decades, has been used effectively to silence critics as no one wants to be branded as racist. We can no longer allow them to use this attack.
When a leftist tries to use this argument, remind them that liberals, not conservatives are the racists. Liberals have used race in this country as a tool to divide
We have to get in the face of liberals and tell them the only racists left are them, as they constantly bring up race as a divisive issue. Most Americans have long forgotten about this country’s racial strife, and we successfully function as a colorblind society.
Another decisive issue is gay marriage. In
First and foremost, the vast majority of conservatives including myself support the right for gays and lesbians to do whatever they want. We recognize this is a free country, and you are free to sleep with the person of your choosing. Marriage, however, is for the procreation of children; nothing more, nothing less. It says so in the bible, and the bible is what this country is founded on. We support civil unions and equal benefits for you and your partner. The left will always try to invoke political correctness and try to minimize dissent on this issue by calling you a homophobe if you don’t agree. Don’t let this tactic work on you.
Secondly, remind the liberals that socialists in
Most of the pro-gay marriage protests you see are organized by communist front groups such as ANSWER and ACORN. Stand up for what you believe in and let your gay friends know that you support their Constitutional rights, and that the left is just using them for their own political gain.
The abortion debate often invokes volatile feelings for both the pro-life and pro-choice sides. Somehow, the media has conditioned us to believe that this is a hot button issue that shouldn’t be discussed. That is the wrong attitude for conservatives, and has further allowed the left to minimize the pro-life argument.
The country has a serious problem with this issue, and we have to look no further than Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. Her Catholicism and rabid support of abortion creates a huge conflict of interest for conservatives. Furthermore, the Catholic Church’s refusal to publicly refuse communion to these pro-choice politicians furthers their far left agenda and hurts the conservative movement.
I have a solution for this. I would like to call for all conservative Catholics to refuse to donate to their church for a period of one month starting now. Instead of putting a check in the offering plate, put a note in there that says until these vile, baby killing politicians are publicly repudiated, they will not see another cent from you.
Last week, I saw our Vice President Joe Biden on TV with the black mark on his forehead from Ash Wednesday and it infuriated me. His policies regarding the unborn are not what any conservative American or good Catholic should support, and until we stand up to this, the left will continue its stranglehold on our traditions.
Make it clear to the
In less than 300 years,
Now, many Americans feel hopeless and scared, and we are left scratching our heads on how this happened so quickly and seemingly, under our noses. Our enemy is smart. They have made the average American unwilling to speak out or express their beliefs because of political correctness. They have invaded our media and universities and espoused hate and disdain for this great nation. They have slowly broken us down, but we can fight back.
We can remind liberals that in the words of Vladimir Lenin, they are this administrations “useful idiots”. Remind them that gun control, global warming, excessive taxation, and political correctness is not for the common good, but rather to give these socialists absolute power and total control over our lives.
We can remind our fellow Americans that this country is great because it provides the freedom for anybody with the drive and desire to achieve whatever they want. We can tell our fellow citizens to open a history book and learn how socialism has failed everywhere it has been tried because it crushes the human spirit.
We are a nation of the best and brightest, and we have achieved that because generation after generation has believed in our forefathers dreams for this land. When we reject socialism and embrace freedom, there is nothing that can stop us.
