A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
In logic and rhetoric, a fallacy is a misconception resulting from incorrect reasoning in argumentation.
You know, we claim, here in America, that our government is made up of “we the people.” In the past year and a half, or so, of the Obama Regime, we have learned that is false. Oh, it may have been true to varying degrees, in decades past, but no more. Now the government is made up of socialists and Marxists hell-bent on enslaving “we the people” of America.
When the democrat/socialists took power in 2006, they laid low for the next couple of years in hopes of electing a president from their party, which ultimately, they did.
During those nearly two years they were busy as a one-armed man at a paper hanging contest formulating new laws they intended to pass when they had a veto proof Congress and a President, in place, to sign those bills into law. How else do you explain the near instantaneous appearance in the House and the Senate of “new” bills, which were hundreds, even thousands, of pages thick. You do not prepare such documents overnight.
They had been planning the hi-jacking of America. To a great extent, they have been surprisingly successful. It took the American electorate three years to figure out they had been blind-sided by a socialist/marxist plot to take the US from a constitutional republic to a socialist/marxist dung heap.
Conservatives have been fighting around the clock, during those three years, to prop up a reluctant Republican Party and attempt to instill a little steel in their spines and force them to fight, to block, to box-in, to obfuscate, to do whatever they legally could to de-rail the socialist/marxist scheme to drag America down to the mediocre level of many of the European and third world countries on the globe. You see, we conservatives knew, all along, that the so-called democrats did not believe in “American Exceptionalism.” They are ashamed that America is a “super power.” In their minds it is “unfair” for America to be better than other countries. It is the “Social Justice” thing -- you know, Socialism, Marxism, and yes, Communism!
You see, dear reader, when you look at America today understand that THIS is what ignorance and apathy can do to a great country, even a super power.
The most efficient tool the socialist had going for them was political correctness. It demanded so-called “social Justice” by changing the meaning of perfectly good words and phrases and raining down on us pure leftist propaganda such as the global warming hoax. They have even changed “illegal alien” to “undocumented immigrant!” Of course, it is pure bunk, but when our children are indoctrinated in the government school system, they buy into this propaganda because people in authority are soaking their little brains in a bath of their leftist garbage.
As an aside: We desperately need and independent educational system in America. One that accepts not one single dollar of government money and brooks no government interference and NO teacher’s unions allowed. Then, and only then, can we expect to have our children actually gain an education on a par with young scholars in rest of the world. Today, our American students are the recognized dunces of the world. Many are dumb as a fence post and graduate high school unable to read their diplomas.
Americans have a single shot at saving what is left of this once great country: The Mid-Term Election this coming November. To save America we must turn out in droves and vote for the conservative candidates. Already the socialists are mustering their troops to deny us that victory by force of numbers. They intend to flood the polling places with the voters who traditionally vote in blocks for democrat/socialist candidates. For the most part they are the Americans who depend upon the dole of the federal government for their continued existence. They are the “wards of the government” and they will do Obama’s bidding, and Obama is counting on them to save his party in November.
Finally, in my opinion, the Tea Party is going to have to suck it up and begin endorsing candidates for the election in November. Otherwise, what’s the point? I believe it is time for the Tea Party to put their accumulated power to good use in rescuing America from the clutches of the socialist/marxists now in power.
The people who have hi-jacked America have a lot for which they will be called to account. Thousands of years ago a prophet, by the name of Isaiah, said: “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!” (Isaiah 5:20-21) The Obama Regime would do well to harken to the words of this ancient prophet.
Our socialist overlords can deny their socialism as much as they like, but as Jesus, Himself, said: “Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?” (Matthew 7:16) If history has taught us anything, it is that the fruit of the socialist/marxist tree is the fruit of a poison tree. It can, and will, poison a nation -- even unto death. In olden days the ancients upon locating a tree with bad fruit, would hew it down and destroy it to save their orchard. It is time to exercise our horticultural husbandry skills and do a little “hewing” at the ballot box in November
