Nearly AWD’s entire adult life (just hit early fifties..graying at the temples but dayum, I’m sexy!), I have been underwhelmed with the performance of the federal government. The Bush, Clintoon, and W Bush years showed me a federal government snowballing into a behemoth, out-of-control spending machine with a horrible return on investment (liberals love the word “investment”). Obama and Washington today have pulled away the facade that our federal government is nothing less than what our Founding Fathers feared when they wrote the Constitution, fought the Revolution and created the Constitution.
There is a saying you’re familiar with that goes “a house divided cannot stand.” I know, I know, all you Bible-thumpers, it’s a biblical scripture. I’m not very religious but I believe it was Leviticus who said that. America is clearly divided and there is zero to little hope of it ever being united again in its present structure. We are living a perfect mixture of the books Atlas Shrugged and 1984 with a dwindling number of producers, a growing number of producers being fed, housed, and clothed by the looters in government. Most Americans today are the proles spoken of in George Orwell’s book 1984. The proles are hypnotized by sports, intellectually insulting tv programs, and celebrity worship. I would venture that 75% of your friends and family can name the finalists on American Idol but cannot name their Congressman.
Values that once made America exceptional and the envy of the world are now openly ridiculed and criticized by politicians in Washington. Proven values such as hard work, thrift, sacrifice, education, self-reliance are all trounced even by the President of the United States. There exist Congressmen who vote on the direction of this country who believe that Guam floats like a cork in the ocean. The Secretary of Labor, Hilda Solis stated this week that welfare creates jobs.
The Democrats are totally devoted to penalizing those who create wealth in America. They have bet the farm for decades on taking from the producers and giving to the growing moocher class. The federal government has wasted our treasure fighting wars and rebuilding countries populated with people who despise us. Our leaders have turned their heads as tens of millions of illegal aliens have flooded our country. More than that, illegals have been rewarded with citizenship for their offspring born at no cost to them in public hospitals. Illegals are more than happy to take our welfare, housing, medical services, food stamps, etc while working for under-the-table cash payments.
2013 will mark the fifth year in a row with a trillion plus dollar deficit. To pay for this miscarriage of governance, Washington’s solution is to increase taxes on the producers and print money. How could any country survive such fiscal malfeasance?
Barack Obama is without a doubt the most corrupt leader America has known. With an accomplice propaganda media and a timid Republican opposition, he goes unchallenged as he continually usurps the Constitution. When he cannot threaten or buy votes for his legislation, he creates executive orders and unleashes his federal agencies to achieve his leftist objectives. Questions by Congress have gone unanswered, even ignored, concerning the grossly unconstitutional programs such as Fast and Furious. We will most likely never learn the truth about the murders of Americans in Benghazi by Muslim savages armed with weapons from America. While the mainstream propaganda media worked itself into an uproar because Muslim terrorists were forced to wear underwear on their heads in Abu Graib prison, they hardly raise an eyebrow on Fast and Furious and Benghazi. Why? Because they are part of the leftist agenda to destroy the America we patriots love.
The Republicans are no better. Led by a feckless Republican leadership, they have decided it is better to have a seat at the table of tyranny rather than keep their oath of office and protect the Constitution. Republicans have become the best politicians money can buy.
Can America survive? At this point, do we want it to? AWD long ago tired of being in a republic with people who stand in total opposition to what I believe. To hell with blue states and their socialist leaders and ideology. Why would I want anything to do with Massachusetts, California, Illinois, New Jersey, New York, Delaware, Vermont, etc? I don’t. Why do I want to be subject to “leaders” such as Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Charles Schumer, John Kerry, Bernie Sanders, Barney Fwank, Raul Grijalva, and the entire Congressional Black Caucus? I don’t. We have seen the sad results of their ideology. In short, the Democrats stand for liberty for none, poverty for all. Except the ruling elite. This is not the America I love and this is not the America I want for my children or grandchildren. I want my America back.
I remember when America was filled with Americans. Immigrants who migrated here wanted to be part of that great nation. Americans relied on themselves and government was a fraction of the behemoth size it has become. Our national debt could be paid off with what Washington currently borrows daily. We were good, decent, hard-working, honest, and charitable. There weren’t drive-by shootings. Half the country wasn’t on some form of government assistance. It was special to be an American. We were exceptional. Those days are gone.
My America is found in states who have limited government, low taxes, and don’t seek to disarm its populace. There are American patriots in every state who believe and hold sacred these words:
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
Washington has become what our Founding Fathers feared. We have been governed by corruptocrats unworthy to lead even the most corrupt banana republic. Their tyrannous desires are in direct opposition to the will of half of the population of this country. We have watched them. We have suffered under their corruption. We see their goals and the lengths they will go to achieve them.
There is a great storm ahead for the United States of America. I would like to think this great republic can survive. But republics come and go. And America appears to be at the end of the road. Corruptocrats must realize what they will face from American patriots if they attempt to usurp more of our liberties. They must be fought at every turn by men and women who believe in the wisdom of the Constitution and cherish individual liberty.
We will find out very soon how serious Barack Obama and his minions are about taking our Second Amendment rights. They will find out very soon how we will never allow that to happen. The best days of the United States may be behind us but the fire of liberty burns bright in the hearts of hundreds of millions of patriots. I believe our best days are ahead. However, it may not be as a united republic. This country is broken and appears to be beyond repair. I hope I am wrong.
