The United States Gets What it Deserves

While it might be tempting to hurl recriminations toward the libertarians for the spoiler role they may have played in many national races, that isn’t something we’re going to indulge in here.  Except to say that the libertarians cut off their noses to spite their face and are now walking about noseless.

We could point out all the myriad ways in which the slimy operatives of the Democratic party indulged in heinously dishonest tactics to subvert the electoral process.  They shredded Republican registrations, went out of their way to suppress the military vote, let the New Black Panthers go back to their old tricks, ejected Republican election judges, sued states who tried to address voter fraud, indulged in electioneering in voting places, raised the dead, and had their pets vote, among other things.  But even these things only go so far in explaining the outcome of this election.

We could focus on the role the press played in actively suppressing any news unfavorable to Obama (60 Minutes), or their intentional ignoring of the aftermath of hurricane Sandy just as they blamed President Bush for the pain caused by Hurricane Katrina,   We could point out the complete failure of the press to pick up on the major story of Benghazi and the despicable actions of a president who couldn’t be bothered to save American lives when he had the chance.  But even that doesn’t go far enough to explain November 6, 2012.

If America were the country it once was, none of these things would matter, they would make up such a small percentage of the electorate as to be meaningless.

No, this one falls squarely on the shoulders of a populace more interested in being entertained than in being educated.  In a way this is the culmination of 50+ years of an education system designed to indoctrinate rather than teach critical thinking.  It is the natural outcome of a culture taught that superficiality counts more than character, that marriage is an antiquated institution, and that objective analysis and common sense equate to bigotry and racism.  We have our rock star president, who “gets us” and mirrors our values with his hip iPod playlist and juvenile attitudes.  We have a president whose attention span is no longer than our own.    We have no right to be surprised to find out that he often skips his daily intelligence briefings.  Mr. Obama is every bit as unsophisticated as the people who voted for  him.

At about the time of our founding John Adams said,

Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

We’ve obviously hit the tipping point.  I wonder what’s next.

Martin – Everything you have said is so true; worse yet, the majority of parents and grandparents didn’t bother to “check out” their childrens’ curriculum and simply let them do whatever ol’ doc Spock suggested! Do we have anyone else to blame, other than the “entitlement grabbers, the 60’s domestic terrorists who have laid in “silent wait” and the liberal/progressive/commies who pander for the un and are just waiting for “owo”? And they’re not just “waiting”, they’re shoving US in that direction daily!

I suspect that many of us who’ve found this website are not completely suprised by the turn of events- at least not in the larger historical sense.
As the article implies, we have come to a predictable point along a road that many of us had preferred that we, as a nation, would have never traveled.
I hold no illusions that I’ll ever live long enough to see the restoration of the US to the point of national pride that I recall existed during the 1950s, but I’ve not given up on the ideals that our founding fathers hoped we’d protect and defend.
Those ideals are not defined by geography.
Lincoln’s refrain that “A house divided against itself cannot stand.” was about the preservation of a government – a government that now chafes us at every turn. A government that is preparing to engulf us -if we allow it.
It’s time to tell Wash DC the same thing Thomas Jefferson told King George III.
With appropriate modifications:
“Believe me, dear Sir: there is not in the United States of America a man who more cordially loves this nation than I do. But, by the God that made me, I will cease to exist before I yield to a connection on such terms as the US Federal government proposes; and in this, I think I speak the sentiments of freedom loving Americans.”
