The Republic’s End Times?
A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
We were doomed, I suppose, by the very process used to ensure a democracy … democracy itself. And that is the inherent danger of a democracy, any democracy.
We were warned well in advance. Yet, we paid no heed. The man at the center of the transformation of America made no secret of his intention to fundamentally change America. In fact, he blatantly told us he intended to do just such a thing. And with a compliant US Senate made up of mostly Socialists, Marxists, Progressives, and a very few REAL liberals, they executed a brilliant coup de tat in plain sight
The risk of electing a dictator, is always there in a democratic nation. We allow citizens the freedom to vote for the person they most like, most trust, to lead the country. All it takes is a bad mistake at the polls by freedom loving voters misled by slick, smooth, oratory and, let us not forget, the promise or the implication of… something for nothing. I cannot overemphasize the importance of the electorate’s ignorance. It is my belief that ignorance played the largest role in the election of Obama to the presidency of the US than any other single causation.
In a mad rush to the polls to elect the nation’s first “black” President, everything else was overlooked. Important things like Obama’s socialist leanings, his obvious preference of Muslims over those of the Jewish and Christian faiths, his bent toward collectivism, Marxism, and his penchant for a “command and control” economy for the US. None of this mattered to those ignorant of history, ignorant of the philosophies espoused by and believed in by Mr. Obama. No. What was MOST important to them was the election of America’s first black president, whatever the cost.
And there was a cost. Yes, the bill has come due. The cost was only our country – only the republic.
America is a different country than it was just five years ago. America was still a constitutional republic then. Today, America is a socialist nation with Progressives/Socialists/Marxists in control of our government and our economy. The nation is broke and on the cusp of total collapse. And we are being lied to by our leaders on a regular basis. They don’t even seem to mind when we catch them in a lie, anymore.
They are lying to us about the destruction to our healthcare system by Obamacare which is nothing more than socialized medicine of which Vladimir Lenin, himself said: “Socialized Medicine is the Keystone to the Arch of the Socialist State.”
They’re lying to us about the number of unemployed persons in America. An honest assessment of unemployment in America, I believe would render a percentage closer to 21%.
In my opinion, the government is not only lying to us, but they’re cooking the books as well.
The plain truth is — it is going to get a lot worse over the months ahead. We are beginning to get those manufactured “glowing reports” on Obamacare designed to hide the fact of its failure and how badly it has already hurt Americans and the country as a whole. We can expect a general bump upwards in the economic stats, which will be designed to point to a “continued” recovery, as we approach the election in November. Don’t believe them. It will be manufactured propaganda — nothing more.
What we are seeing in America’s economic decline today is what always happens when socialists, somehow, gain control of a nation’s government, and/or a nation’s economy. It dies. Eventually that nation dies just as America is doing.
Can America be saved? I doubt it.
Understand, dear reader, we don’t really know just how bad things really are — and we won’t know, until we clean the government of the miscreants now in charge. Sadly, even if the GOP gains control of the US Senate at the polls in November the damage already done the country will take decades to repair. Such is the virulence of Socialism/Marxism.
The country we knew as little as a decade ago no longer exists. How do we bring that country back? Can we? Frankly, I am not sure it can be recreated.
Will we be able to work past the anger, the suspicion, the lack of trust Americans have for one another today. We will have to fight the urge to split apart into more than one country. We may also find that instead of a single country, always at war with itself, the states may decide to split into two or three coalitions or confederacies, or, dare I say it… countries.
America is united in name only today. If we are honest with ourselves we will admit that America is, at the very least, two countries existing under the banner of one nation.
First, however, we must stop America’s slide into oblivion. Then we can decide who and what we want to become. Even before we do anything we must accept the fact that America, as a constitutional republic, no longer exists. It may be gone forever. I sincerely hope not. I hope Americans will decide to recreate America as its original founders intended. But, we must face the fact that THAT is not likely to happen.
America exists today as just another socialist nation along with its counterparts in Europe. It is a completely predictable end for a nation, which deliberately chose ignorance of its history and of its government.
Ignorance brought America down. There is no other reasonable explanation for the government we have in Washington, DC, today!
