A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
As Americans draw ever closer to a time of reckoning, many have begun to take notice of that freedom we have remaining.
Some of us old, grizzled, scarred-up, graybeard veterans of multiple past skirmishes with power hungry Leftist zealots in our government are actually gratified today.
Why, you ask?
We have finally begun to make inroads into the nearly closed minds of younger Americans who have now lived long enough to allow some of the Marxist indoctrination from their days in the government school system to wear thin. Plus, their own personal experience with REAL LIFE, as opposed to the communist Utopia sold by the Leftists, has, too, worn thin and it is beginning to be seen as the ethereal mirage that it really is. Their perception is changing.
We can thank Obamacare for so many Americans coming to realize that the cheese really ain't free!
How many times did we warn that if you thought healthcare was expensive before Obamacare, just wait until Obamacare gave it to you -- free!?
But, Obamacare is just a part of the story of the deconstruction of the Obama/Marxist dream.
There are the lies. SOOOO many lies. Americans believe NOTHING coming out of the Obama Administration. They will lie even when telling the truth is easier. That says to me they really DO think you and I are stupid, ignorant, and unable to think for, and care for, ourselves. Of course, that DOES describe so much of the voter base of the Democratic (Marxocratic) Party these days that I suppose that explains why the Dems think of all of us in the same way.
Fortunately for America we are not all dumb, stupid, and ignorant.
As far as I am able to ascertain, the Obama Regime is the second American presidential administration to suspend the constitution. The first, of course, was the Lincoln Administration.
Lincoln's abuse of the constitution wasn't so bad, after all. It only cost the lives of 700,000 Americans, tore a country apart, forced it back together at the point of a federal bayonet, and today the country suffers the stress of a nation with two distinct cultures and strong regional distrust between Americans -- to this very day.
As if the lingering suspicions from the "recent unpleasantness" of the War of Northern Aggression was not enough, our failed President has driven a wedge deeper between the black and white races in America.
Look. Obama won the Presidency precisely BECAUSE he is black. (Well, at least HALF black, anyway.) In 2008 it was as though nothing Obama said was of any importance. The only important thing was the color of his skin. America had decided it was time to elect a black President and, come hell or high water, they would -- and did. Blacks voting for Obama came in in the high 90's percentile. Even so, it was white voters who put Obama over the top and into the Oval Office.
Yes, it was an historical "feel good" moment for the country. But as everyone (save for the Leftists) knows -- those "feel good" moments are totally worthless in the real world.
Obama is a failed President. Oh, the history books will not record that. It's too embarrassing, too, uh, truthful. Today's history is mostly fable written by the revisionists of the Marxist persuasion, in any event. Any Obama short comings that cannot be left out of the official record will be blamed upon Obama's opposition, the Republicans.
Obama has done his race no favors. All black politicians will be judged, henceforth, using Obama as the rule. The ethics of ALL black politicians will now be called into question. As a result, it will be a cold day in the warmer climes when another black man resides in the Oval Office of the United States. And that is sad, really, because there are some extremely well qualified conservative black politicians out there who would, in my estimation, make an excellent Commanders - in - Chief and President of the US. Former Congressman, Colonel Allen West, leaps to mind.
There is a school of thought that Obama is a failure because of overexposure. Oh, I agree that he was -- and is -- overexposed! It is so bad that when the man shows up on my TV to make another of his boring speeches, the channel is changed instantly, or the TV is switched off immediately. He has nothing to say, I care to hear -- other than: "I resign, effective immediately."
No. It was not overexposure that ruined Obama's Presidency, it was Obama's un-American political philosophy and his Marxist agenda for America. THAT'S what ruined him! He is surrounded by so many Communists, Marxists, and Socialists, that the West Wing is referred to (by some) now as the Kremlin West.
Around the world Obama -- and America under his leadership -- have become laughingstocks. He has proved, unquestionably, that he is unable to go toe to toe with America's enemies, and that means America's friends are now on their own for the first time since before the Second World War. Now, instead of America's enemies being frightened, it's America's friends who are frightened -- and with good reason.
Meanwhile, back in the USA, the natives are growing more restless as each day passes. See, Americans have an option most people do not enjoy. We have the option, in fact, the duty, to take our government from the hands of those who prove detrimental to the constitution and return her to constitutional rule.
The title of this piece mentions a time of reckoning approaching. Many feel that a calendar date can actually be set -- for November 2014. Americans are gong to make every effort to take the entire legislative branch of the government over and bring a screeching halt to the Marxist agenda of Obama and his henchmen. That is the peaceful -- and preferable -- way to begin the process of returning America to her rightful condition as a constitutional representative government.
Look. America is a product of revolution. Is it so difficult to imagine a continuing revolution to guarantee the survival of our freedom and liberty?
Victor Hugo a French poet, novelist, and dramatist once said: "When dictatorship is a fact, revolution becomes a right."
I'll close with this brief reminder from the American Declaration of Independence:
"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."
The men who penned those few lines changed the world. They did not do it lightly.
When next revolution comes to these shores if will be for the same reason. It will be men doing what they are convinced they MUST do.
America is far too precious to let her go without a fight.
