I’m sure most have heard an old saying, “All the world is wrong but me and thee and sometimes I have my doubts about thee.”
I receive a number of e-mails and comments about my blogsite articles. Most are thoughtful, considerate and complimentary. Many are in agreement on subjects I write about, but a few are condemning in their disagreements. I welcome all of them. As I view it, for the few who write in opposition to the ideas I expound upon, there are probably dozens who agree with them but never ink their opposition. Therefore I think it important I publish and respond to those who oppose.
Someone once said, “The tempo of the American people is never far behind nor ahead of the tempo of political government.” If this is true, then it stands to reason, the downfall of those things upon which this country was founded, those great Moral guides, The Declaration of Independence and the Ten Commandments, falls at the feet of the American people.
Just before he was elected, President Obama said: “We are just five days away from transforming America.” He never articulated just what he was transforming to. Some were naive enough to believe he meant improvement for the betterment of this once great Nation. However, nine months into his seat of power, we now know what he meant. It is now glaringly apparent, his actions, mandates, appointments, and agenda are transforming this once free country of Capitalism and individual Rights, into a country of Socialism. One of its two brands, communism or fascism. Yes he is rapidly transforming America.
The first two or three months we listened and watched as he pushed through such things as billions in stimulus packages. Many of us were stunned at the rapidity of this transformation he promised.
Recently some have been shocked into reacting in opposition. Across the nation, “tea parties” of opposition rose up, and a few news programs, like Fox news, aired stories about what is happening. One in particular, Glenn Beck, who airs everyday at 5 o’clock on Fox news, began a series of exposure programs, telling the truth, and detailing names, dates and places of this transformation. It’s a shocker, and hard to believe the entrenchment of takeover by avowed Communists in this country.
Not so much a shocker to me because I began reading all about the plan back in the fifties. One book in particular, titled “Witness,” by Whitaker Chambers, a devout card-carrying Communist who defected, and tells the stories of saturation in government agencies like the State Department, with hard-core Communists. He tells it like it is from first hand knowledge as one of those communists in government. He vividly describes Communist cell meetings of those in seats of power in Washington.
Despite the fact they no longer carry cards, I’ve never read anything describing any clean-up activities of those entrenched in government high-paying, tax-funded jobs. Instead of weeding them out, they have grown in numbers with new recruits, bred in the philosophy of Socialism. Consequently they have already accomplished a great deal of transformation of this America into a socialistic country.
Freedom is self-responsibility and self-control. The choices of how we conduct our lives, and control of private property have already been transformed.
Billions of dollars spent and thousands losing their lives in foreign countries in government-mandated wars. What are they fighting for, I ask? Certainly not for personal Freedom and private property Rights in this country. If this were true why have we lost those Freedoms? It’s all akin to the stimulus packages to destroy this nation as we once knew it via economics.
These tactics and strategies are all outlined in such books as “The Communist Manisfesto.” It’s all a deliberate, well-organized plot to “Transform America” like President Obama told us five days before he took the reins of power. We can’t say we were not warned. We heard but did not heed. Now we face a severe crisis. A crisis of how, where, when and if, we can reclaim the Freedoms already lost.
I have written many articles about the public school situation in this country. Government owned tax-supported socialist schools where several generations have been indoctrinated into a belief in socialism. About a million who recognized their children were not being educated but indoctrinated, have removed their children and home-school. But even so, the text-books mandated and required by the State to use, are filled with teachings of socialism.
Many well-meaning parents are products of socialized grade school teachings. And most of higher education colleges have teachers and professors who are far-left, liberal teachers. Therefore the big job at hand is one of re-educating, to re-think, and recognize the root cause of the problem. Many do not actually understand the meaning of Freedom.
Conversely, millions are upset, angry, and disenchanted with things the way they are today. They recognize something is very wrong. But the entrenchment and power of a centralized political government, has the upper hand. They are all dancing to the same steps they know so well. Organized, and in concert to takeover and have a socialist country.
Many books have been written in the past and recently, which detail what has happened and is happening. Information is available to anyone who cares to be informed about the truth, to anyone who desires to be informed.
The hour is very late, but perhaps not too late to reclaim this country for the principles upon which it was founded. But a daunting task lies before us. Not something which can be put on the back burner till tomorrow or next year. It is now.
Freedom is not free. It has a price, “Eternal Vigilance” and a willingness to stand up for it and to fight for it if necessary. Talk about it, write about it, and act upon it individually. Get off the backs of each other by refusing government pay-offs and bail-outs. And most importantly, stop and think about what is happening, honestly.
Let Freedom Ring
