One Small Step for One World Government -
One Giant Leap for Mediocrity
Enter Stage Left – The newest citizen of the world, Senator Barrack Obama, whose scripted rhetoric soars in Europe. (Well, it naturally rises if you set the stage with free rock bands and free beer, which is evidently what occurred. Heck, I’d consider going for that.) So, Senator Obama appeared in Germany, not as a presidential candidate, but as a citizen of American and as a citizen of the world. The emphasis on being a global citizen caused me to consider the meaning of such a statement. I certainly realize that most of this was the political theatre of the “looking for the photo op” kind, but the level of pandering involved gives rise to some concern. The translation – under my leadership, America will strive to be you (European) because America has lost its way, we’ve made so many mistakes, we’ve been wrong all along the way and now we must sacrifice to go forward. I would ask: Is everyone in Europe happy with the European Union model? I don’t think so. (I do like the free beer aspect.) Is the ultimate sacrifice that we in America will be asked to endure is to give up our independence and U.S. sovereignty for the concept of global governance? It very well could be.
What appears to be happening is that the extreme left is looking for the emergence or convergence of a collective that will be governed by the right (actually the left) thinking peoples of the world. The ultimate goal being the submission of everyone’s free will to the collective good as defined by the left. It is being accomplished by attempting to come to power with aid of the media’s support, spreading the false idea that only they (the enlightened ones) can effectuate change and that all other voices should be discredited. Unfortunately, the people this year are especially susceptible to this message because there does exist a generalized feeling of malaise in the population created by the media. The main stream media has taken every opportunity for years now to paint the world, the news, with the brush that says the sky is falling. It has been effective.
This is a formula that has worked for dictators time in memorial, Hitler included. Hitler used the Jews as the reason Germany was experiencing such hard times following WWI. Obama and Democrats from the far left are using the war in Iraq, President Bush, the bad oil companies and the obfuscation of economic principles to bamboozle the American people. Books have been burned, scapegoats created and opposition silenced before and we are seeing it now online. (I hope you have been following the tactics employed against those blogs and voices opposing Senator Obama on the internet. Social security numbers, IP addresses, personal information such as illnesses and medical conditions has been disclosed to the public at large, sites have been hacked into, information removed and sites have been shut down.) What we have been experiencing by opposing Sen. Obama in this election has been extraordinary. Unfortunately, it is only a preview of things to come.
Once the message is established and the means for the common man or woman to speak effectively (on the internet) is controlled, then the only voice will be “Change we can believe in.” The media will eagerly join in the chorus. Reverend Wright and William Ayer’s philosophies will finally emerge from the breast of Barrack Obama – and those of you who have decided that Obama is our course will need to accept that the responsibility this disaster is yours.
Once elected, we all will be hard pressed to find out exactly what is occurring during this transition to completely centralized government because the media has been shown to be willing enabler of Obama. Even now, there are rumors of bringing back the “Fairness Doctrine” which will effectively quell any strong voices in opposition to Sen. Obama’s message and plans. Please don’t be fooled by the nice sounding words – fairness doctrine. It is merely a guise to impose so many restrictions and penalties on radio stations that they will chose to not put on “talk radio” because the legal hassle will be too great for most stations to endure, especially the mom and pop stations.
The words of former Democratic President Woodrow Wilson (1912) come to mind to show that ideas inherent in Obama’s America have manifested before.
Justly revered as our great Constitution is, it could be stripped off and thrown aside like a garment, and the nation would still stand forth in the living vestment of flesh and sinew, warm with the heart-blood of one people, ready to recreate constitutions and laws….
I cannot imagine power as a thing negative and not positive…
Government does now whatever experience permits or the times demand…
The President is at liberty, both in law and conscience, to be as big a man as he can. His capacity will set the limit…
America is not anything if it consists of each of us. It is something only if it consists of all of us…
The competent leader of men cares little for the internal niceties of other people’s characters: he cares much–everything–for the external uses to which they may be put…. He supplies the power; others supply only the materials upon which that power operates…. It is the power which dictates, dominates; the materials yield. Men are as clay in the hands of the consummate leader…
Woe be to the man or group of men that seeks to stand in our way…
President Woodrow Wilson was one of the leaders of the progressive movement – Obama’s movement.
This last quote lays the ground work for the kind of fascism that is coming and that we in the blogging world are experiencing from Senator Obama’s supporters. It seems that we all must ultimately think and believe Obamaspeak. The media has made him the standard bearer of what America is to become – a bunch of sheep following the chosen few.
The level of intimidation by Obama supporters against opposing voices has been unprecedented in this brief but important history of the internet. I’m reminded of the saying by President Bush from some time ago, “You’re either with us or you’re against us.” I suppose some things just keep coming around with different actors, don’t they?
What will America look like if President Wilson’s thinking and actions are directed to the global citizen concept?
Enter again stage Left – Barrack Obama, Reverend Wright, William Ayers, George Soros, Tony Rezko, Louis Farrakhan
Exit stage right – The American Individual who has made this country truly great. The ones who get up every day and strives to be the best they can be, strives to solve the problems facing us all.
While we are followers of Jefferson, there is one principle of Jefferson’s which no longer can obtain in the practical politics of America. You know that it was Jefferson who said that the best government is that which does as little governing as possible…. But that time is passed. America is not now and cannot in the future be a place for unrestricted individual enterprise
President Woodrow Wilson
I hope you read this last quote very carefully and think very seriously about if this is the America you truly want.
Why should the American Individual continue to start new businesses in the face of growing governmental red tape, control and taxes?
Why should the American Individual continue to fund (taxes) the ever increasing number of people who want a free ride bought and paid for by someone else’s sweat and effort?
Why should the American Individual strive to make the advancements necessary to grow jobs, cure disease, protect freedom, and solve the energy mess Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi have gotten us into? (Only to see their profits stripped from them.)
Why shouldn’t they just get on the dole and let someone else take care of their every need? Then they could simple vote for whoever will keep sending the checks (the DNC of Chicago) and not worry.
Why shouldn’t they vote for anyone who will promise them the most? Everyone else is doing it!
Normally, I would say, “Because they’re responsible Americans.”
But this election year, given that the electorate appears to be so blinded, I’m tempted to say, “Why not let the government attempt to care for our every need, to heck with the future of our children, close your businesses, retire, let it fall apart on Obama’s watch.” Maybe when it all falls apart or we’re attacked again because of Obama’s policies and naiveté, the people living here will once again come to remember and think about how we got this far as a people. Maybe then reason will make a comeback and it will be time to vote responsible Republicans, Blue Dog Democrats and Independents back in office – to clean up the mess.
The mess that Senator Obama’s imposition of Mediocrity upon America will bring. The Mediocrity imposed by government handouts to create dependence and secure your vote, instead of a hand up. The Mediocrity caused by the over regulating and socializing of businesses. The Mediocrity caused by unjust wealth redistribution which stymies the creative individual spirit and initiative. The same Mediocrity that will cause the hard working, innovative Americans and the small businessmen and women to resent the government’s hand being so deep in their pockets in exchange for some votes does not come without consequence. The same Mediocrity will cause the job producers to close shop or lay people off rather than deal with such idiocy, bureaucracy and taxes. The Mediocrity arising from our relying primarily on government (rather than reaching for a hand up or pulling ourselves up), damaging our resilience. The Mediocrity that going down the road of one world government and surrendering parts of our sovereignty will cause to emerge. (Just think about ineffectiveness of the United Nations.) The Mediocrity that flows from unreasonable tax policies, which seem to follow the expression credited to Sen. Russell B. Long.
Tax reform means, ‘Don’t tax you, don’t tax me. Tax that fellow behind the tree.’
Senator Russell B. Long (D)
The current political shell game of vilifying business and oil companies, threatening higher taxes and seizing profits is just plain dishonest and disingenuous. Reason should allow everyone to see that the taxes imposed on business will ultimately be paid by each of us because such taxes will always be passed on in the price of the product. We are that fellow behind the tree.
I’m tempted to say all that, but I won’t.
A government big enough to give you everything you want, is strong enough to take everything you have.
Because we’re blessed by just being born here and we still have the vote – even though the media is trying hard to effectively take it away – even though they won’t investigate Obama’s past associations – even though they won’t investigate Obama’s connections and conduct related to Tony Rezko and friends – even though they won’t investigate Larry Sinclair’s allegations of drug use and gay sex with Sen. Obama in 1999 – even though, etc., etc., etc…..
If we come to our senses, we will see through this elaborate production and see Obama for who he is. He is inexperienced, arrogant, naïve to the point of being dangerous, a socialist in his heart of hearts, controlled by others, not a friend of Israel, and he is definitely not a friend of the American Individual. We can all say “No, you won’t Senator Obama!”
A conservative is a man who just sits and thinks, mostly sits.
Senator Obama recently added that he (rural America) also is bitter and clings to his guns and religion, mostly clings.
The Obama who is cut from the same arrogant cloth as Wright, Ayers, Farrakhan, and Wilson is not someone who will ever garner my support.
It is a wretched taste to be gratified with mediocrity when the excellent lies before us.
