What if he is Right?

What If He’s RIGHT?

Take the three minutes to read this. Maybe it’s is wrong, but what if it’s RIGHT?
Something of historic proportions is happening. I can sense it because I know how it feels, smells, what it looks like, and how people react to it. Yes, a perfect storm may be brewing, but there is something happening within our country that has been evolving for about ten to fifteen years. The pace has dramatically quickened in the past two.

We demand and then codify into law the requirement that our banks make massive loans to people we know they can never pay back? Why?

We learned just days ago that the Federal Reserve, which has little or no real oversight by anyone, has “loaned” two trillion dollars (that is $2,000,000,000,000) over the past few months, but will not tell us to whom or why or disclose the terms. That is our money. Yours and mine. And that is three times the $700 billion we all argued about so strenuously just this past September. Who has this money? Why do they have it? Why are the terms unavailable to us? Who asked for it? Who authorized it? I thought this was a government of “we the people,” who loaned our powers to our elected leaders. Apparently not.

We have spent two or more decades intentionally de-industrializing our economy… Why?

We have intentionally dumbed down our schools, ignored our history, and no longer teach our founding documents, why we are exceptional, and why we are worth preserving. Students by and large cannot write, think critically, read, or articulate. Parents are not revolting, teachers are not picketing, school boards continue to back mediocrity. Why?

We have now established the precedent of protesting every close election (violently in California over a proposition that is so controversial that it simply wants marriage to remain defined as between one man and one woman. Did you ever think such a thing possible just a decade ago?) We have corrupted our sacred political process by allowing unelected judges to write laws that radically change our way of life, and then mainstream Marxist groups like ACORN and others to turn our voting system into a banana republic. To what purpose?

Now our mortgage industry is collapsing, housing prices are in free fall, major industries are failing, our banking system is on the verge of collapse, social security is nearly bankrupt, as is Medicare and our entire government. Our education system is worse than a joke (I teach college and I know precisely what I am talking about) – the list is staggering in its length, breadth, and depth.. It is potentially 1929 x ten. We are at war with an enemy we cannot even name for fear of offending people of the same religion, who, in turn, cannot wait to slit the throats of your children if they have the opportunity to do so.

And finally, we have elected a man that no one really knows anything about, who has never run so much as a Dairy Queen, let alone a town as big as Wasilla, Alaska. All of his associations and alliances are with real radicals in their chosen fields of employment, and everything we learn about him, drip by drip, is unsettling if not downright scary {Surely you have heard him speak about his idea to create and fund a mandatory civilian defense force stronger than our military for use inside our borers? No? Oh, of course. The media would never play that for you and over and over and then demand he answer it. Sarah Palin’s pregnant daughter and $150,000 wardrobe are more important.}

Mr. Obama’s winning platform can be boiled down to one word: Change. Why?
I have never been so afraid for my country and for my children as I am now.

This man campaigned on bringing people together, something he has never, ever done in his professional life. In my assessment, Obama will divide us along philosophical lines, push us apart, and then try to realign the pieces into a new and different power structure. Change is indeed coming. When it comes, you will never see the same nation again.

And that is only the beginning…
As a serious student of history, I thought I would never come to experience what the ordinary, moral German must have felt in the mid-1930s In those times, the “savior” was a former smooth-talking rabble-rouser from the streets, about whom the average German knew next to nothing. What they should have known was that he was associated with groups that shouted, shoved, and pushed around people with whom they disagreed; he edged his way onto the political stage through great oratory. Conservative “losers” read it right now.

And there were the promises. Economic times were tough, people were losing jobs, and he was a great speaker. And he smiled and frowned and waved a lot. And people, even newspapers, were afraid to speak out for fear that his “brown shirts” would bully and beat them into submission. Which they did – regularly. And then, he was duly elected to office, while a full-throttled economic crisis bloomed at hand – the Great Depression. Slowly, but surely he seized the controls of government power, person by person, department by department, bureaucracy by bureaucracy. The children of German citizens were at first, encouraged to join a Youth Movement in his name where they were taught exactly what to think. Later, they were required to do so. No Jews of course.

How did he get people on his side? He did it by promising jobs to the jobless, money to the money-less, and rewards for the military-industrial complex. He did it by indoctrinating the children, advocating gun control, health care for all, better wages, better jobs, and promising to re-instill pride once again in the country, across Europe , and across the world. He did it with a compliant media – did you know that? And he did this all in the name of justice and …………… CHANGE. And the people surely got what they voted for.
If you think I am exaggerating, look it up. It’s all there in the history books.

So read your history books. Many people of conscience objected in 1933 and were shouted down, called names, laughed at, and ridiculed. When Winston Churchill pointed out the obvious in the late 1930s while seated in the House of Lords in England (he was not yet Prime Minister), he was booed into his seat and called a crazy troublemaker. {He was right, though. And the world came to regret that he was not listened to.}

Do not forget that Germany was the most educated, the most cultured country in Europe . It was full of music, art, museums, hospitals, laboratories, and universities. And yet, in less than six years (a shorter time span than just two terms of the U. S. presidency) it was rounding up its own citizens, killing others, abrogating its laws, turning children against parents, and neighbors against neighbors.. All with the best of intentions, of course.. The road to Hell is paved with them.

As a practical thinker, one not overly prone to emotional decisions, I have a choice: I can either believe what the objective pieces of evidence tell me (even if they make me cringe with disgust); I can believe what history is shouting to me from across the chasm of seven decades; or I can hope I am wrong by closing my eyes, having another latte, and ignoring what is transpiring around me…

I choose to believe the evidence. No doubt some people will scoff at me, others laugh, or think I am foolish, naive, or both. To some degree, perhaps I am. But I have never been afraid to look people in the eye and tell them exactly what I believe and why I believe it.

I pray I am wrong. I do not think I am. Perhaps the only hope is our vote in the next elections.

  1. I wish I could say that his prayer will be answered… You are correct in citing what is coming to America in so many directions… I hold out hope that Americans will overcome as they have in so many ways so many times in the past… Many are waking up from the dream to find this nightmare and are joining in the like mindedness to prevent any further degregation to our country…
    The stand is visible and even though it is being marginalized by all those who are complicit, it exposes them for who and what they stand for… We see the enemy of Americas principles as founded by the forefathers of this country… As of this time, the fight is ideologically being fought on every front that has become visible and the Patriots are speaking volumes to those who would think that a fundamental transformation of America is in our futures…
    This will not stand here in America and we anticipate the coming revolution which will possibly be necessary in the future as those who have either been duped or are complicit shall make demands that will start chaos when they can no longer be dependent upon government in it`s present form…
    This will come along shortly as either the programs are cut or ended, possibly by bankruptcy… What many are not seeing is the war that is raging against the Big Banker Empire that has been in control over America for so long… The regime that is now currently in control of many offices across America wants all power for them and their agenda… We know their agendas and who they are and with so many out of work, they now have the time and where with all to awaken to these truths…
    Shamefully I must admit that we have become a nation of whores for the big Banker Empire that controls almost every aspect of American Society… I`ve never known any pimp to be anything but controlling over their empires or very nice to their subjects in any forms… We have allowed ourselves to become dependent upon them since our founding as a nation…
    This had to come to the light sooner or later as those who are perpetually looking to achieve power have come to discover that the obstacle to this plan has been America and the goodness that it`s people have in their hearts that have always made it the last great hope for the world… So they have decided to make their play from here and from the inside as they never could win from attacking from the outside…
    What we need to do is to enlighten those who are willing to hear the truth, which are those who have come to realize that something is fundamentally wrong with what we now view our govt. has become over the decades…
    We do not need to protest as the calls fall upon deaf ears to many who have gained these positions in and around our govt… Their propaganda outlets will use these to degrade the strength of the will of like minded Patriots whom wish not to continue along with this agenda…
    We need to establish our network so as to stay in a lock step with one another as to just how we will continue forward with stopping this movement that has been to fundamentally pervert America and convert it`s long standing principles…
    If we are to succeed in keeping America the Beautiful our Founders have given us the tools to do this, but only if we can stay in concert with one another…
    There is great wisdom around America that does not necessarily come from a politically correct version of schooling… It comes from the hearts of man and his wisdom to know the Truth along with his able bodied hands that have long aspired to create a better place for mankind… To produce for the betterment of mankind everywhere…
    This is the greatest experiment known to man and It Has Not Failed… It has only been given the opportunity to learn from the mistakes that have led us to this point in time, which we all live…
    America is still infantile in it`s learning to become what it truly yearns to become and easily led astray by those who hold claim to be smarter and better from it`s core fundamentals that began the greatest experiment ever known to man…
    As always America will become better for this turn of events that have brought us upon that which many may feel this as an eclipse, but which always comes back fully… Sometimes blood is spilled to reveal the growth pains that freedom will always experience as there is no greater enemy than the evil people bring to bear for purposes we may never know in our lifetimes…
    So hold your Hopes and Dreams High, as these are more of the growing pains that we here in America must endure and become so much stronger for…
