I Fear For My Country
The Silent Majority ^ | 04-26-11 | J. D. Longstreet

Posted on 04/26/2011 8:04:55 AM PDT by Lexluthor69

In 2009 I wrote the following: “I fear for my country. America has gone from a vibrant capitalist society to a dying socialist society almost overnight. We have become an impotent sleeping giant sprawled across the globe whiling away our days dreaming of a socialist utopia that does not exist and never has. If anything, we among all, people are the most to be pitied. How pathetic we have become. We have traded our shining city on a hill for a government low-rent housing project. The worst of it is… we did it of our own free will!

Yes, democracy can be a dangerous way to govern a country as the German people learned when allied bombs were raining down on their cities. They chose the Furher of their own free will and they paid a price no nation should ever have to pay.

For democracy to exist, to thrive, and to survive, it is incumbent, it is REQUIRED, that the electorate is intelligent, learned, and knowledgeable people. Because it is they who decide, by their votes, whether democracy, in a free country, lives or dies.

The overriding question today is… Can America even survive? The answer, realistically, is… NO, she cannot… not if she continues the course she chose in 2008. Having said that, we must also say that YES, America can survive… IF she changes course and returns to her roots as a capitalist, democratic representative republic.

There is likely to be a historic internal struggle in America over the next few years to decide the issue of whether America lives or dies. It will be ugly as such struggles always are. The first indication of which form of government Americans really want is likely to come in 2010 when Americans return to the polls.

Rather than going with fear, perhaps it would be better to go with a dertermined resolve to make certain that this “One Big Ass Mistake, America” is stopped and corrected.

I share with you this sentiment and gut wrenching feeling.

Not sure which side it could go quite frankly...

America's survival hangs in the balance and the international community is licking their chops.

Someone hasn’t been paying attention. The foundation for this train wreck has been in progress for decades. Barry Soetoro is the wrecking ball that hastened its arrival. The republicans are as much to blame as the tards. Ultimately the problem is the electorates tho b/c we hired these scammers. Articles like this reek of stupid.

How True! Meanwhile, the public school curriculum gets modified on an annual basis. American exceptionalism is no longer taught. Economics is no longer required in high school. It taught that Columbus was a land thief who brought disease and dispair to the American Indians. God's values are replaced with teachings to protect the Earth and despise big business.

Earlier post:

The Federal Government has become our enemy.

You know (and the Founders well understood this), when you put a vicious animal to guard your property, you keep an eye on him so he doesn't turn on you. You limit his territory and keep him in a limited, safe place where he can do his job while not turning and threatening you. We have not done this, but instead have allowed this vicious animal to break loose and it is no longer protecting anything but has become a menace to everyone.

The restraints and fences used to contain this useful but potentially dangerous government beast is the U.S. Constitution. We have instead let this beast eat its way through all these Constitutional restraints and barriers until now there is nothing to stop this vicious animal from devouring the nation it was appointed to protect.

I knew this battle was coming all along. The whack nut radicals are trying to put the screws to the rest of us. Those damn idiots must be removed or it is over for America. They are killing off our society with no domestic oil drilling, high taxes, excessive rules and regulation, green this and green that, global warming B.S. and the list goes on.....Oh the idiots who put this boy socialist in power! Damn them all!

Not to put too fine a touch on it, we don’t live in a Democracy, but a “Republic if we can keep it”, to paraphrase Ben Franklin.

I is incumbent upon our generation to do our utmost to keep it.

Like other great nations before us, Babylon, Greece, Rome, the Ottoman Empire, Britain, etc., and now America, we are and have followed in the footsteps of our predecessors. It may be a slow death or a sudden collapse, it remains to be seen, likely it is near to being to late to turn this ship of state around; and the precipice is near, and we are headed straight for it. MO

God help us to turn back to him and repent, with contrite hearts for our shameful/evil ways, in Jesus name amen.

I’ve gone beyond fearing for my country and started fearing for my family.
We’re laying a in a stock of food, seeds, tools, and ammo. We’re buying books on survival and do-it-yourself medicine. We’re buying medical supplies. And dosimeters.
Hell, we’re even trying to figure how to rig a fallout shelter.

"At what point shall we expect the approach of danger? By what means shall we fortify against it? Shall we expect some transatlantic military giant, to step the Ocean, and crush us at a blow? Never! All the armies of Europe, Asia and Africa combined, with all the treasure of the earth (our own excepted) in their military chest; with a Buonaparte for a commander, could not by force, take a drink from the Ohio, or make a track on the Blue Ridge, in a trial of a thousand years. At what point, then, is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer, if it ever reach us it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide. - Abraham Lincoln

Try to be optimistic. Hope for the best but it would only be prudent to prepare for the worst.

Americans have been here before - prior to the Civil War and during the Depression. We have not yet descended into violence.

Rush Limbaugh from the Institute for Advanced Conservative Studies says he will tell us when it is time to panic.

If you do not have faith or are not yet a praying person, now would be a good time to start. Jesus said, “In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.”

I am not blaming America's decline on Obama, nor on the MSM. But the selling off of our industrial base has allowed control of the media to go into multinational interests. They (mainstream media) have become an anti-American interest propaganda machine. I just don't see how we can recover when it's propaganda by the mass media 24/7.

The damage this communists rat King Obama and his communists Administration will NEVER be completely reversed. Programs for free loaders will tilt every election forward on and will prevent reversing many of the entitlements no matter what party.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

We will never recover if we continue to send our nation's children into socialist-funded, collectivist-managed, GODLESS, voter mob controlled, prison-like, government schools! Simply by attending government schools the next generation of voters become comfortable with:

**socialism
** collectivism
** voter mob control of their lives, deaths, and even their thoughts
** prison-like treatment from the government
** GODLESSNESS!

Every extra dollar I pay at the gas pump I consider a blow against Obama and the greenies. It will be their doom for the next thirty years (just like Carter). Maybe longer in this case.

I was just trying to offer some encouragement. I am not a pollyanna. I am preparing now for the worst. Our government is our enemy so we must stand firm and fight back. Right now we are fighting in the realm of ideas and at the ballot box. Tomorrow it may be with bullets.

What are you going to do when Obama’s agents come to your house?

Try from now until the 2012 election if we get there.
