As the Obama presidency disintegrates before our eyes, the would-be dictator stubbornly clings to his socialist ideology, blaming everything but the real culprit. History plainly shows that socialism always ends in failure. The last two socialist presidents were laughingstock Jimmy Carter, and national disgrace Bill Clinton. Jimmy Carter remained faithful to his Marxism to the bitter end. But Clinton, ever the philanderer, saved his presidency between scandals by wisely placing his polling numbers ahead of his leftist desires. One need look only to Europe as the latest example of socialist-bred economic and societal collapse.
So why can’t the hyper-intelligent (or so we’re told) Barak Obama read the proverbial handwriting the wall? Perhaps his blindness has something to do with socialism’s real allure: the overwhelming, seductive, and addictive nature of power. In other words, he just can’t help himself.
Those of us who knew a Marxist when we saw one back in 2008, are not surprised by the catastrophe that is Obama. We also took note of the fact that he was breathtakingly unqualified to be president. But we were outvoted by people who believed that he would make a great president because he was black, and an excellent speaker. They wanted to be the first in history to elect a black man president of the United States. Strangely, nearly all of his supporters don’t know the first thing about history. But they still wanted to make it, and make it they did! They elected the most radical extremist in our nation’s history, and a particularly dangerous character at that. Maybe they should have thought about what kind of history they wanted to make, before they went about making it. But liberals don’t think, they react.
Even America’s most ardent leftists are beginning to complain publically about BO’s dismal record. Yet just like him, they can’t let go of that socialist utopia thing that lives on in their fevered imaginations. Rather than logically facing facts and drawing appropriate conclusions, they do what they always do. Every time Marxism craters, leftists blame the people in charge of it, telling themselves that it's not the ideology, but the execution that failed . . . and they are turning on poor Barry. You would think that the downfall of the Soviet Union would have taught them someth–oh yeah-that’s history isn’t it? If they admit that their ideology is to blame, then they would be admitting that they were wrong, and there’s no such thing as a humble liberal.
When Edmund Burke said “Those who don't know history are destined to repeat it,” he must have had socialists in mind. They just keep on pushing that same, old, tired Marxist-Leninist bane with all that tried and true race baiting, something-for-nothing class warfare, and fraudulent rhetoric about compassion and fairness. And folks, they aren’t going away. If conservatives win in a historical landslide on November 8, 2012, the socialist drones will wake up Wednesday morning and go right back to work.
Their tenacity is why our newfound vigilance must continue. America will pay a terrible price for the electoral foolishness of 2008 for many years to come. The outcome of our endeavor to restore the Constitution as the law of the land is anything but certain. If we repeat our history of apathy towards political activism, they will eventually succeed in their malignant bid for power and control. “Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.” Pay the price or lose the liberty.
