Liberals Can NEVER Again Be In Power

We were complacent: Happy in an America that provided us with more than any other country in the world. As children, when we said our prayers, we thanked God we were born in this country. We grew up with parents telling us, “Eat your supper, the children in Europe are starving!” As we grew up, we became accustomed to owning two or more cars, several TV’s, a cell phone, a nice home, etc. Our kids were involved in two sports; we went on vacations at least once a year. Like heart disease, liberalism is a slow and silent killer. Like a termite, it has slowly eaten through the fabric and foundation of our values, our liberty, and our country. To those of us who have awakened, we know that the far left liberal Barack Hussein Obama was a gift–an alarm clock that hasn’t stopped ringing since he was nominated over 4 years ago. And by many accounts, he was elected by fraudulent means, has ruled by fraudulent events and has many fraudulent plans to further change this country into a shadow of what it once was.

Henry Wallace, Roosevelt’s VP from 1941 to 1945, wrote that he had observed the beginning of a slide into Despotism and Socialism within the attitudes of Washington’s elite. According to Wallace, well-intended leaders with personal agendas would precipitate the loss of individual freedoms:

“So enlisted, men may rightfully feel they are serving a function as high as that of any minister of the Gospel. They will not be Socialists, Communists, or Fascists, but plain men trying to gain by democratic methods the professed objectives of the Communists, Socialists, and Fascists…”

Likewise, in 1944 Norman Mattoon Thomas espoused Wallace’s theory with his prophesy of the fall of American democracy—and the mechanism that would be used:

“The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism,’ they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened. I need no longer run as a Presidential Candidate for the Socialist Party. The Democratic Party has adopted our platform.” (From The Corson Archives)

Many great civilizations have not made it much longer than about 200 years. These events have been predicted by history. From a piece by Loren Collins:
In a quotation attributed to the French author, Alexis de Tocqueville, the dangers of loose fiscal policy were stated as follows:

A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations has been 200 years. Great nations rise and fall. The people go from bondage to spiritual truth, to great courage, from 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.

If this is true, and former civilizations seem to bear this out, then we are overdue for the same fate.

Back to Liberalism: From an article by Erik von Kuehnelt-Leddihn published in the First Principles Journal:

American liberalism is not a closed ideol­ogy like Marxism-Leninism or National Socialism, but a very mixed bag with a number of internal contradictions. It is like a compendium of nearly every nonsense that we in the West have produced since the Enlightenment and the French Revolution…American liberalism exalts the pro­verbial three men sitting on cracker barrels in the general store talking politics, but at the same time hides the arrogant contempt the half educated have for the common sense of simple people…And to many, the approach of Ameri­can liberalism is agreeable: it is optimistic and carries many promises. Yet unlike a clever pagan existentialism, such as that of Sartre, who told us that life is absurd and that the history of every person is a history of failure, contemporary liberalism is sim­ply ignorant. It ignores the Biblical mes­sage that “the mind of every human being from childhood onward is directed towards evil” (Genesis, 8:21). And just like an ignorant person, this liberalism is stubborn and does not learn from past mistakes or from history. In spite of its relativism, it is highly aggressive and, in defiance of pleas for tolerance, it is itself extremely intolerant, alternating savage attacks with silent disregard.

Some simple facts (paraphrased from Heritage.org):

Progressives reject the Founders’ notion that “all men are created equal and have certain inalienable rights.” In their view, humans are not born free…the Progressives held that nature gives man little or nothing and that everything of value to human life is made by man, they concluded that there are no permanent standards of right.
The Founders believed that man’s capacity for reason and moral law is far more important than anything government can give him and that freedom is a gift of God and nature. Government’s function, then, is to secure that freedom.

For the Progressives, freedom is redefined as the fulfillment of human capacities, which becomes the primary task of the state. “Creating individuals” versus “protecting individuals”: this sums up the difference between the Founders’ and the Progressives’ conception of what government is for.

FDR’s New Deal in the 1930’s destroyed jobs, prolonged unemployment, cut back farm production, devastated black tenant farmers, gave unions monopoly bargaining power securing them above-market wages which triggered layoffs and helped usher in the depression of 1938. The New Deal also channeled money away from the South and put it into the higher incomes of the West and East. FDR had good intentions but ended up harming millions of poor people through policies and acts that forced consumers to pay above-market prices for goods and services. And, as FDR intended, Social Security endures because it draws as much on self-interested individualism as on self-forgetting community-mindedness.

From an article, “The Great Society, A Libertarian Critique” by Murray M. Rothbard in LewRockwell.com:

LBJ’s {Lyndon B. Johnson)} Great Society {the welfare state} is the lineal descendant and the intensification of those other pretentiously named polities of twentieth-century America: the Square Deal, the New Freedom, the New Era, the New Deal, the Fair Deal, and the New Frontier. All of these assorted Deals constituted a basic and fundamental shift in American life – a shift from a relatively laissez-faire economy and minimal state to a society in which the state is unquestionably king. 1 In the previous century, the government could safely have been ignored by almost everyone; now we have become a country in which the government is the great and unending source of power and privilege.
The cruelest myth fostered by the liberals is that the Great Society functions as a great boon and benefit to the poor; in reality, when we cut through the frothy appearances to the cold reality underneath, the poor are the major victims of the welfare state.

To the Black family, who was just beginning to assimilate, despite its grievances, into American society, The Great Society was a death knell. We are experiencing now the end result of that tremendous folly.

Liberalism IS the source of everything wrong in this country. From the hoax that is global warming, to mercury laden light bulbs, to the debt ceiling, to the moratorium on drilling, to the over $14 trillion in debt, to the dying economy, to abortion, to the Democrat Fraud Factor, to the debacle of Obamacare, to the extinction of the education system… liberals have never stopped destroying the country–or the world. As a civilization, we are on the brink of a cataclysm. While other countries have recognized the foolishness of liberalism, with this administration, we are heading full face into it–obliterating everything we hold dear.

This is why we can NEVER–EVER–allow an Obama to happen again. Liberalism has got to be suppressed–permanently. What does this convey? We all have to do more than vote. If you don’t know what that means by now, go find out. In addition, we must educate our kids–like the Jews have educated us about the Holocaust so that IT never happens again, we have to educate everyone who will listen–educate them now and until we die–about liberalism. Liberalism will be totally eradicated, fellow Americans, and like Satan–until Armageddon–it will rear its demon head and try to re-emerge. We patriots must make sure it NEVER does and teach both our children and grandchildren to do the same. Like survivors of Eastern Germany and Cuba and many other dictator-run countries have done once escaping–we can never again rest–we can never again be complacent.

We must from this moment forward be guardians of our heritage as Americans.
