4th, 2008, will likely go down in the history books as the
day America gave up her world leadership role and became another “has
About two years ago when I first began to look
seriously at this fellow named Obama, I recognized his overt socialism
immediately. It wasn’t difficult. It was right there for everyone to
see… if one wished to see it. But it now seems that millions of
Americans are perfectly fine with assisting in the suicide of America by
accepting his message of socialism, the destroyer of nations.
an old codger and I have seen socialism as an enemy of the United
States and what, back in my day, we called Americanism. Americanism is
simply defined as democratic capitalism.
When I was in the US military we were
taught to fight socialism. We trained to meet the socialists on the
field of battle. There was no question that Americanism and socialism
could not exist on the same globe without conflict, and, we rightly
assumed, armed conflict.
Months ago, as I began to write about the
dangers of socialism to America, (and how the Democratic Party has
become a sort of Socialist/Democratic party) I was stunned when they,
the democrats, did not refute it. I had expected democrats to deny any
connection to socialism. But they didn’t. It was then that it struck
me… they don’t deny it because they can’t. They have become socialist!
They have embraced socialism. Why, then, I asked myself, don’t they
change the name of their parry to accurately reflect whom, exactly,
they are. We suggest: “The Socialist Democrat Party of America.”
There is no reason to attempt to conceal the true alignment of the
so-called Democratic Party in America with the Socialist movement any
longer. They have totally embraced socialism with gusto!
1935, or so, FDR, a democrat, introduced Socialism to America with his
New Deal. America has never been able to extricate itself from the New
Deal. It is still with us today.
As hard as it is to fathom,
there are millions of Americans today educated in America’s public
schools who have no idea what socialism is. As the democrat party
controls our public school system, the courses taught are favorable to
socialism. American “scholars” are not taught that socialism is a
cancer, which will eat away the core of a capitalist nation by simply
removing any desire of the citizens to advance their station in life.
It squashes all ambition to live better, to make more money, to
manufacture better goods, to offer better services, to do/say/produce
anything in which one could exhibit pride either in themselves or their
How can this be? Well, socialism demands the end of
private enterprise. Under socialism there would be no small businesses,
no Mom and Pop stores, no entrepreneurs. Socialism demands the
redistribution of wealth. That means taking the money you earned and
giving it to those who did not earn it.
Socialism demands that all
wealth in a nation, and that includes yours, will be controlled by the
government. In other words, you will own nothing --- not even your own
money. The government owns everything and everyone is given only what
is necessary for that person to survive.
Socialism celebrates the
lack of an upper class and a lower class. Under socialism there is only
one class. And in THAT class all people suffer
It would seem that America has made the decision to turn
it’s back on everything good the forbears made and sacrificed to give
us… an America, unique in all the world and in all the world’s history.
then, is America about to do? America is about to join the mediocrity
of the remainder of the world. No longer desirous of the leadership
role, no longer willing to do the heavy lifting required by freedom,
America has decided to join the pack of “has been” nations now
embarrassed by their past glory years.
If I am right, and I am
convinced that I am, we have begun the” Post-America” period in world
history. Which leads to the burning question, at least for me. That
question is: After America, who will lead the world?
