OK, so that I won’t be the only one not to call Mr. O a bald-face liar, regarding his promise to the people being able to keep our current policies and doctors under Obamacare and the supposed cost reduction and savings. But com’on what could we expect from someone who spent most of his adult life in a church that spewed some of the most vile anti-American sermons in the world, got married in that church, and than wanting to be President he says with a straight face to the American people and U.S citizens, “I did not know”!? The people voted for him…TWICE! That’s like you catching your man on the eve of your wedding day coming out of your bedroom sweating, dripping, and erect. And he tells you that it was a big mistake and misunderstanding and that he didn’t know that she wasn’t you. And you still marry him. It’s not going to get better. But his actions are not the real issue. The real issue is what made us, as Americans and citizens of the United States, accept such behavior from someone holding such an important position in the first place?
It does not matter that the Obamacare site doesn’t work as promised. It matters that the man in the seat of the Presidency of the United States lied to us regarding the true intent of Obamacare. And it does not matter how many people are not able to get affordable healthcare with Obamacare, are not able to keep their current polices under Obamacare, or are not able to keep their current doctors under Obamacare. It does not matter that the true cost of Obamacare will be saddle this nation with an anchor of debt for generations. It matters more that the man who’s sitting in the seat of the President of the United States purposely lied to us in saying repeatedly that this would not be the case. The truly disturbing question of the matter is why we the people keep accepting such a blatantly unethical man to continue to sit in that seat?. Nixon lied for arguably far less an egregious offense to the people’s trust and the integrity of the nation and was drummed out of office on his second term. But, I hear not even a snare in this case. Hum.!
No one can honestly look back just over the past 40 years and say that America is at it’s best now and that things can only get better, particularly just on a societal basis. History tells us that the great nations of the past were not defeated from without by guns and soldiers, but from within from societal debasement and the lost of a stern moral compass. Early famous 1800 writer and historian, Sir Alex Fraser Tyler, prophetically stated, “The average age of the worlds greatest civilizations has been two hundred years. These nations have progressed through this sequence: From bondage to spiritual faith; from spiritual faith to great courage; form courage to liberty; from liberty to abundance; from abundance to selfishness; from selfishness to complacency; from complacency to apathy; from apathy to dependence; from dependence back again to bondage.” I dare say that I believe that we are in the severe latter stages as a nation. But this transformation has not come suddenly, in the light of day, or by a knock at the front door, but incrementally, in the shadows, and by way of an extra backdoor key that your naive child mistreated.
Though Mr. O boastfully and brazenly proclaimed that he was going to “fundamentally transform” this nation, and many of us mistook that for empty political rhetoric, this transformation has been going on hidden in plain sight for generations. Mr. O just turned things up a few hundred notches and been more brazen with his destructive actions than any previous president. But this drastic societal transformation could not be accomplished in a vacuum nor by a single individual. In this case it has happened with a grossly complicit Established Media complex that is more set to entertain than inform the people, an educational system that instead indoctrinates, and a grossly intellectually politically uninitiated populace.
Today, this once proud nation has more people unemployed and unemployable, more people on food-stamps and government assistance for our basic needs like in no other time, as the population of illegal immigrants, particularly those from Mexico, swell to unprecedented levels with the blessings and submission of the federal government. Our brave and courageous sons, daughters, husbands and wives that volunteered to be part of the U.S military, are being subjected to religious discrimination and suppression, particularly if they subscribe the Christian persuasion, as though they were governed by a foreign power. Christendom as a whole is being aggressively suppressed in the general American population as in no other time. And America’s founding principles and ideals are being treated as vulgarity not just by the federal government, but by the general population like in no time.
I would hasten to conclude that the main cause for all of this is from the gross degradation of the moral and ethical thread that used to be apparent in our society and culture and the stubborn American individual desire to be independent and dependent from the government and to strive to be academically exceptional above all others that we once as a nation made us feared and respected.
The vaunted American identity of a staunch belief in right and wrong, governed by Judo-Christian teachings, and Constitutional principles, have been confiscated like the Royal Jewels in the dead of nite as far too many of us lose ourselves in psychological frivolity and the perpetual search for pleasure, joy, and fun without responsibility nor fear of consequences. Thus, have jettisoned any notion of civic responsibility. Mr. O is who and what he is. No president has so brazenly spoke to the American people with such discourtesy, disrespect, and complete disregard for our intelligence with the impunity as he has. And the Establishment Press does shoulder some blame for this atrocity of government, but it, just as the government, provides the product that the masses demand. If we the people want an accountable and morally based government, we would have one. And if we the people want an honest Establishment Press, we would have one. But, we do not demand high standards of morality or ethics of ourselves, so how can we honestly and truthfully demand it of someone or something else? And then how can we be shocked that the members of government continues to behave is such discourteous and immoral ways that put the nation’s existence in peril?
Thomas Jefferson may have said it best when he said, “Yes, we did produce a near-perfect republic. But will they keep it? Or will they, in the enjoyment of plenty, lose the memory of freedom? Material abundance without character is the path of destruction” and “If a nation expects to be ignorant and free it expects what never was and never will be.” At the end of the day if you catch your soon-to-be-spouse cheating and lying to you before the marriage, and you don’t hold them accountable, then you get what you get. At the end of the day, we the people have the government that we desire, good or bad. At the end of the day, it is up to each of us to secure our prosperity and liberties for ourselves and our posterity.
