Everything about America these days points to a dying country bleeding wealth, employment, stature, and even purpose. The federal government is at the core of this plague. Americans are totally divided as to the correct course the country should take. It appears Americans are evenly divided between producers and moochers. Spoon fed on socialist dogma in schools and culture for generations, liberal Americans seek and support policies are surely destroying us.
By every measurement, Barack Obama is a total failure for Americans who support freedom and prosperity. By every single measurement, Obama has weakened the USA, emboldened our enemies and reneged on his oath to uphold our laws and protect the Constitution. Obama is not alone, George W Bush also dramatically increased the size and cost of government.
I found this video the other day from 1986 when America had a President who was a patriot and defended the values and morals of what made America the strongest, wealthiest country in history.
Watch the entire speech.
America now has a President who promised to and has greatly succeeded in “fundamentally transforming America.” He has transformed America into an economic disaster zone where we witness more concern for millions of illegal alien invaders streaming across our borders than taxpayers. Obama has saddled us with so much debt the American dollar is rapidly losing its enviable position as the world standard as China and other countries rise. He has tremendously grown the federal government in cost, scope, and power. The initial disastrous results of the unpopular ObamaCare only hint of the full destruction of health care in America awaiting us. His political party has marched in lockstep with his disastrous policies and actions.
Where is the ‘loyal opposition?’ The Republican Party has also marched lockstep with Democrats and Obama in increasing the insurmountable national debt of nearly $18 trillion and growing the federal government. They have worked backroom deals trying to pass Amnesty for illegal aliens not here seeking freedom as legal aliens once did but come here for seeking welfare handouts.
With 100% of black support, the Democrats need new voters they can lavish with social programs in return for lifelong support at the ballot box. While Republicans, owned by the Chamber of Commerce and their Big Business cronies, seek a new class of cheap labor. And the doors of America’s border states have swung wide open! Who pays for all this? The American middle class tax payer and worker who sees the American Dream rapidly becoming the American Nightmare.
Republicans put on political theater feigning outrage for the numerous scandals and unconstitutional usurpations of Obama and his minions. But nothing happens. No one goes to jail. No one even loses their jobs. Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner sadly promises to sue Obama in court knowing that Obama will be long gone when any decisions are rendered. Yet, the country continues bleeding to death.
Where are the statesmen who will step forward and boldly proclaim that nothing will be funded or passed until the violations perpetuated by the federal government on American citizens are made right and the responsible punished? Who in Washington demands that Obama uphold the very laws he swore to uphold? Who proclaims that Obama will no longer circumvent Congress with de facto Amnesty and violations of his presidential authority? What is the answer?
America had Ronald Reagan to restore our faith in government after four years of the disastrous Jimmy Carter. Who do current day Ruling Class Republicans want us to elect to replace Obama? El Jeb Bush or Chris Christie. I will pass on either of those.
We find ourselves one Supreme Court heartbeat away from the socialists placed on the bench outlawing the Second Amendment! How much can and will patriotic Americans suffer before something is done?
The question is not “what is the answer” but “what is the solution?” The Republicans nor Democrats offer no solutions. The are the problem. America’s elected officials at the national level have installed themselves as the Ruling Class virtually immune from being voted from office. Lifelong politicians are enriched by corrupt lobbyists and special interests while completely ignoring their constituents. What the Republicans did by paying black liberal Democrats to vote for Thad Cochran in the Mississippi Republican primary shows the despicable levels Republicans have fallen in protecting one of their fellow ruling class corruptocrats.
What hope does the American patriot taxpayer have when his federal government actively works towards his demise? Americans have faced this decision before. You will recognize the words:
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
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. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States.
By the words of Thomas Jefferson, all signs point to American States who still hold those truths to be self-evident, that the United States of America cannot stand in its current direction. The rights of The People must be protected. Not the rights of the collective as sought by the ever-powerful and tyrannical federal government, but the individual! You! Me! The leaders of the Tea Party movement who were deliberately targeted by the IRS and members of Congress!
The States that still hold fast to the vision of The Founders are the current Red States. Socialist Blue States long ago made their decisions to pursue socialist and crony capitalist policies that are resulting in the collapsing of their economies and the encroachments of the rights of their citizens. Red States are seeing refugees from these Blue State hellholes arriving in droves. In Dallas, homes for sale remain on the market less than a week before purchase, usually being purchased by a Blue Stater fleeing high taxes, high unemployment, and lack of individual freedoms. AWD heard a friend say the other day that the construction crane should become the new Texas State Bird. Cranes are everywhere.
AWD has stated numerous times I have no desire to have corrupt socialist politicians from Massachusetts, California, New York, Michigan, Vermont, Delaware, etc holding power over my earnings and freedoms. When the Tea Party movement began in 2009, I had hope that we could return America to a prosperous path where new Congressmen and Senators would be elected to replace the Ruling Class ilk hellbent on destroying us. But I have come to accept that the Tea Party was 30 years too late. The Tea Party worked tirelessly to return the Republicans to power in the House only to watch them renege on every promise they made and go on to elect John Boehner as Speaker. For those who have read Atlas Shrugged, I have turned into John Galt after years of holding out hope as a Dagny Taggart. My beliefs in a prosperous America with a positive future were further eroded when Barack Obama was reelected.
If we had 25 men like Ted Cruz and Mike Lee in the Senate, I would still hold out hope. But they are despised by Republican politicians like John McCain and Mitch McConnell even more than they are by Democrats. It is blatantly clear the hatred the Ruling Class Republicans hold for the Tea Party! Why does the Republican Elite hate the Tea Party movement? Because we support fiscal sanity where the government doesn’t borrow/print $1 trillion each year. What are we supposed to do?
The Tea Party in Texas had a tremendous Republican primary season. Several big-spending RINOs were sent packing and replaced by those who will fight for smaller, limited government, individual rights, secure borders,and low taxes. I have great faith in Texas where sufficient numbers of patriots are able to neutralize the millions of dollars from the national Republicans and their Chamber of Commerce cronies with fiscally conservative voters who are motivated to vote in primaries.
Is America doomed to separate into two countries where only one follows the tried and true limits on government set up by the Founding Fathers while the other follows socialist European models of high taxation and limited freedoms? Will the separation be a requirement to protect Americans from the tyranny of corrupt big government?
In the wise words of Benjamin Franklin, “you have a Republic if you can keep it.”
It appears the warnings of Alexis de Tocqueville have been realized: “The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public’s money.”
As for me, I will quote the great Texas songwriter Ray Wylie Hubbard: “I like the other States, they’re OK. But Texas is where I want to be and I don’t care if I ever go to Delaware anyway!”
What are your thoughts on the question of the continued viability of the United States of America as a republic?
