Skip to comments.A Nation of Fools? A European's View of the United States
Posted on 05/15/2010 9:25:21 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Obama supporters are quick to claim he has repaired the U.S. image abroad. There are many in the U.S. and abroad who disagree on very sound grounds.
One wonders just what kind of mental process is needed to conclude that Obama's performance in flying around the world apologizing for America's strength represents anything more than buffoonery that costs us dearly in terms of lost respect for the United States. Yet in holding up Obama's dismal failures dealing with foreign leaders as "successes", his supporters serve only to underscore just how little they understand foreign relations and how much a neophyte Obama has proven to be.
Following is a very revealing summation by a European (by way of the Czech Republic, author unknown):
"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the presidency. It will be easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails them. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president."
The author of that statement hits the nail squarely on its head!
Obama supporters are either dedicated Progressivists-Collectivists-Marxists who despise the Constitutional Republic of the United States of America (because they despise freedom), or they are Liberal-Moderate pseudo-intellectuals whose capacity to think is vastly overwhelmed by their capacity to be duped and parrot nonsense.
One has to admit there is a real problem with an electorate that would entrust someone:
Who blocks efforts to provide conclusive proof he possesses the citizenship qualifying him to be President,
Whose education background cannot be verified as legitimate because he has stonewalled all efforts to have relevant records made public,
Who has never held a meaningful private sector job,
Is hostile to U.S. history and original Constitutional dictates,
Had to resign from the Illinois bar to avoid disbarment for falsifying information,
Has greater regard for the preachings of Marx and Saul Alinsky than he does for our Founders (Jefferson, Adams, etc.),
Has declared war against economic freedom (capitalism),
Has declared war against American culture,
Believes U.S. citizens can be compelled to do things "for their own good",
Believes the myth of human-caused climate change,
Is willing to "skyrocket" (his word) energy and fuel prices by declaring war on fossil fuels (the most abundant and cheapest source of energy we have).
It is no help that we have to suffer a propaganda network feeding us "news" that glorifies Obama and ignores his massive spending, his responsibility for continuing massive unemployment, his short-sighted efforts to attack the very source of jobs (American business), his continuing efforts to chip away at personal freedom, and his willingness to drag down the living standard of the United States as a "fair" compensation for our past worldwide economic dominance.
Between extremely biased "news" and an education system that denigrates American culture and our traditional values of freedom, individual responsibility and property ownership rights, while it praises multiculturalism, ridicules traditional American values, and glorifies socialism, it is no wonder the U.S. electorate are incapable of making intelligent decisions at election time.
Are we going to allow these travesties of "news" and "education" to continue to drag our nation into the gutter of mediocrity? Or will citizens open their eyes, awaken to the monster that we have created within our borders, and take action? Will informed citizens speak out against the massive Leftist propaganda that consistently dominates news and education? Will good people sit idly by and watch the demise of this great nation, or will they take all necessary action to restore our once-great Constitutional Republic?
The elections this coming November offer an opportunity to take a significant step in the right direction. But electoral success will not solve the underlying problem underscored by the European comment quoted above. Those who believe in personal responsibility, liberty, and adherence to our fundamental Constitutional restraints on government must continue to work at local and state levels to remove all inappropriate teachers/professors and their Marxist-oriented teaching materials from our society. It is one thing to teach about Marxism and Fascism to inform people of their dangers. It is quite another to teach and glorify these despicable anti-human philosophical monstrosities!
There is a LOT of very hard work ahead to save this country. But failure to take the challenge is failure to uphold everything our Founders sacrificed for and the many sacrifices since then in support of freedom and individual responsibility and self-determination across the globe.
November will only be step one of many, many difficult steps we must take.
When the patients run the asylum you can expect no less than insanity at the top.
LOL -- A War on Fossil Fuels! I like the phrase.
Unfortunately, it is not a war, it is merely a battle in the War on Capitalist America.
EXCELLENT, and bookmarking to forward to many.
We must have really sunk THIS LOW that a Euro writes like a succint American..damn Obowmao.
Obama represents the the person who will finally make things “fair” for the millions of self-pitying Americans who think they were shafted by being born in the greatest country in the world. Self-pity and resentment of those who have more than they do drives many of these people. Many of the wretches are now awaiting (and puzzling over why it isn’t happening faster) the moment when their savior Obama will forceably expropriate all the undeserved wealth of the people who have more than they do and give it to them.
Europe and other regions of the globe perceive him with a gifted tongue but an empty suit. They may not always have agreed with GW Bush but they respected him as the President.
Obama is a smooth tongued demogogue—not a leader— and it shows.
If he took everything from the top 10% and gave it to the bottom 30%, the wealthy would have it all back within two years. That’s why they’re rich!
I felt when he was installed that the horrendous %% of folks who helped make it happen were getting the ‘leadership’ they deserved.
Sadly a lot of good people may well suffer alongside of them.
God have mercy on us.
Think about it...there was never a "cult" of Hillary. No fawning racist worshippers of a false Messiah.
Hillary was a quantity we knew. A crook we knew..
If she wanted to get anything done, she would have had to deal with Dems and Pubs like Our Bill. And Bill with a Repub Congress gave us a balanced budget and welfare reform.
Because Bill wanted a legacy. And, to be honest, with a Repub Congress he got a pretty good one. Bill was also a crook we understood. Bill Clinton didn't seem to HATE America like the O admin does.
One of the early Buddhist kings of Tibet did just that ... three times! ... and got exactly the result you predict.
A book I read called "The Millionaire Next Door" supports that conclusion. People who never learned how to make money lose it very quickly when it's just given to them. Like heirs of great fortunes who dissipate the hard-earned wealth of their parents. Very common according to the authors.
Hmmm good point
The Clintons are both dangerous to this country. They are actively helping Obama.
The only thing that upsets them is that they aren’t the ones pushing the Marxism from the presidential seat.
