It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American decent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me dear reader, I meant people.
The people who blindly follow Obama are sheep, and it seems more Americans are jumping lemminglike into this category, or at least being lazy enough not to care, going into the abyss with a shrug of the shoulders. Of course, there are crazies like this:
And, it appears there is a growing psychosis among those who still buy what Obama is selling....from Powerline blog:
It has long been noticed that Obama's slipperiness had been accepted by the left during the Hope-and-Change campaign when He took positions, for example and notably, NAFTA and foreign trade generally, on both sides of an issue. They were willing to cut Him slack in most cases precisely because they just assumed that, of course!!...He was lying....to someone...about the issue. Since each side could reasonably assume this --- the unions that when He made free-trade noises when He assured Canada (and then lied about THAT!) that He wasn't protectionist, and the rational liberals when He pandered to the unions on NAFTA in Ohio, for example --- they could all support Him thinking He was lying....but to the other side!...."Don't worry....we can trust Him because He's lying" was, in effect, left-wing Hope.
This has been particularly noticeable with the gay marriage issue....Carrie Prejean being exactly right when noting that her position is identical to that of His Oneness. But Obama gets a pass, of course, from the homosexual activists because they just assume He is lying!!!...to the conservative blacks, for example, 70% against gay marriage in California....
So, they are either sheep, or are outthinking themselves thinking Obama will work for them if only they believe, no matter how many lies about abortion laws or gay reform or whatever else trickles from his forked tongue there are. Sheeple. The Russians are calling this one down the middle and we have evidence...The old adage, if you stand for nothing, you'll fall for anything...well, we are falling for socialist fascism...Back to Pravda....
True, the situation has been well prepared on and off for the past century, especially the past twenty years. The initial testing grounds was conducted upon our Holy Russia and a bloody test it was. But we Russians would not just roll over and give up our freedoms and our souls, no matter how much money Wall Street poured into the fists of the Marxists.
Those lessons were taken and used to properly prepare the American populace for the surrender of their freedoms and souls, to the whims of their elites and betters.
First, the population was dumbed down through a politicized and substandard education system based on pop culture, rather then the classics. Americans know more about their favorite TV dramas then the drama in DC that directly affects their lives. They care more for their "right" to choke down a McDonalds burger or a BurgerKing burger than for their constitutional rights. Then they turn around and lecture us about our rights and about our "democracy". Pride blind the foolish.
Don't think Americans have lost sight of their important rights? Even as Obama is taking away the rights of people and businesses to determine their own pay schedules and such, we have Americans who think not getting their precious happy meal food is a crime...From the Smoking Gun:
MARCH 3--Angered that her local McDonald's was out of Chicken McNuggets, a Florida woman called 911 three times to report the fast food "emergency." Latreasa Goodman, 27, last Saturday called police to complain that a cashier--citing a McDonald's all sales are final policy--would not give her a refund. [To listen to Goodman's 911 calls, click here, here, and here.] When cops responded to the restaurant, Goodman told them, "This is an emergency. If I would have known they didn't have McNuggets, I wouldn't have given my money, and now she wants to give me a McDouble, but I don't want one." Goodman noted, "I called 911 because I couldn't get a refund, and I wanted my McNuggets," according to the below Fort Pierce Police Department report. That logic, however, did not keep cops from citing Goodman for misusing the 911 system. Even after being issued a misdemeanor citation, Goodman contended, "this is an emergency, my McNuggets are an emergency."
Then there is this story involving Burger King. What is wrong with people? The answer is simple. As a teacher I see it all the time. Even as we are parroting about critical thinking skills, we are not teaching them. We are teaching less than the basics. We are more concerned with who is getting their feelings hurt than in teaching and having high standards. People are more concerned with the notions of pleasure and easiness than in the notions of ethics and rights. We are no longer an educated citizenry and so we are losing our freedoms in pieces, with eminent domain cases, freedom of expression being tossed out for Christians, and many other examples. Check out this article on the dumbing down and phasing out of judgment from education. Without judgment, how can we proceed with what is good and bad, what is profitable or not? Wait, the Obamessiah is there to tell us, right? The ol' "enlightened despot." You think I am engaging in hyperbole? Look back at the previous article from power line and then this one from the American Spectator. We are becoming dumb enough to just trust our leadership. Our founders were not about that. We needed to stay engaged to keep an eye on them. Sadly, our citizenry has left this to the self interested and sociofascist state run media to do this for them, sacrificing their own work ethic and their own drive to stay informed in the process. However, ask anyone who was the latest to get kicked off the island, or who McDreamy is doing on Grey's and everyone knows that. Pathetic.
Then their faith in God was destroyed, until their churches, all tens of thousands of different "branches and denominations" were for the most part little more then Sunday circuses and their televangelists and top protestant mega preachers were more then happy to sell out their souls and flocks to be on the "winning" side of one pseudo Marxist politician or another. Their flocks may complain, but when explained that they would be on the "winning" side, their flocks were ever so quick to reject Christ in hopes for earthly power. Even our Holy Orthodox churches are scandalously liberalized in America.
The final collapse has come with the election of Barack Obama. His speed in the past three months has been truly impressive. His spending and money printing has been a record setting, not just in America's short history but in the world. If this keeps up for more then another year, and there is no sign that it will not, America at best will resemble the Wiemar Republic and at worst Zimbabwe.
Check out these articles and videos about the US and the disastrous Wiemar Republic Hyperinflation...Thanks Dubya and Obama!
The Weimar Hyperinflation? Could it Happen Again?
A Comparison of Events from Wiemar and 21st Century America....check it out..troubling. Scary
Video from Glenn Beck on Hyperinflation, the US, and the Wiemar...
And folks, remember what happened when the Wiemar collapsed? Hello, uncle Adolf!
These past two weeks have been the most breath taking of all. First came the announcement of a planned redesign of the American Byzantine tax system, by the very thieves who used it to bankroll their thefts, loses and swindles of hundreds of billions of dollars. These make our Russian oligarchs look little more then ordinary street thugs, in comparison. Yes, the Americans have beat our own thieves in the shear volumes. Should we congratulate them?
Yes, let's let Tax Cheats like half of the Obama Cabinet dictate our tax code.....
However, people are beginning to awaken. Obama's numbers are falling gradually, even with the propping up by the state sponsored and controlled media (General Electric owned NBC and Co. especially!)
This article has been receiving a lot of response. Here is one sent to pravda:
I must confess that when I was a kid, during the Reagan years, I was among those Americans that condemned Russia's communist government. Back then, of someone had told me that Russians would become free and America would become communist, I would have questioned their sanity. Today, I'm dumbfounded as I watch it all unfold.
Stanislav isn't the first to make this point. I have heard people here in America, former Soviet citizens, warn that we're heading in the same direction as the Bolsheviks. There are plenty of Americans who don't worship at the alter of the "Obamessiah" and hopefully we'll be able to put this brakes on this downward spiral in our future elections (provided we still have elections). May God help us all.
I'll close with a quote from an American socialist. "The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of 'liberalism,' they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened," - Norman Thomas, U.S. Socialist Party presidential candidate 1940, 1944 and 1948.”
Let's hope we can put the brakes on this and come back to real liberty and freedom in America, where we care for liberty and not mcnuggets.
However, the Republicans and conservatives have got to stop playing "let's pick the best candidate and not the best person" game and get people who actually believe in the Constitution, the rule of law, limited government, and all that. The party and the thinktanks have to engage as never before in education tours, not listening tours, that tell people what conservatism really is and is not. That is what Goldwater did. That is what Reagan did. Reagan did not go around just listening. Sure, he would listen, but then he would educate. The problem with the Republican party and the Conservatives today is we too are products of this modern society. We have grown lazy. We also want people to like us. The GOP is now the PLM party..."Please like me."
Principles should not shift with the wind, and they need to continuously be defended and extended to the people. That is how you defend and expand liberty. And with how our country is going now, that should be our goal, even above and beyond "winning elections." Of course, getting the powers that be in the RNC and the ORP to see that and understand that, well, it may take some more of us Chicken Littles saying the sky is falling, and also providing the chunks to show proof. We need to stand firm and stand fast, and not be concerned with being liked as being understood and having people know what we stand for. Only then can we come back from the precipice we are nearly falling over. It takes much work. The questions remain: are we too late? And, given the sheepish and squeamishness of the RNC, who is going to do the leading? As usual, it must begin with us, the grass roots. Stand fast, and fight to the finish.
