Like most of us, I have measured and evaluated the idea that Obama and his communist backers were taking over (I even spent a goodly amount of money on arms and ammo). The abject failure of Obamacare was a pretty clear indicator that the communists who were planning to take over were either incompetent or completely unprepared for such takeover.
I believe that even those who believed Obamacare was meant to fail as a step toward a single payer system were mistaken.
The failure of Obamacare is a failure of government.
Americans are laughing...and they will soon be angry.
I believe Obama was mistaken.
If there were a planned takeover of America by Communists, they have failed miserably. They might have succeeded by an effective implementation of Obamacare...but they stumbled and fumbled and fell!
I am not sure exactly how America will emerge from the failed era of Obama...but it will emerge (and he will be a joke).
And the world economy will move on...and those who invest in it wisely will profit.
I think we are about to emerge from a period known as The Social Insanity of America...
Anyone who disagreed with our socialist president was called a racist.
Anyone who complained about gays was called a homophobe.
Anyone who complained about Communism was called a conservative...
But in the end, the conservatives are still here...and we arent gay and we arent socialist!
But we are rather happy if not exactly gay...
Obama thinks he has won but let’s see what’s really happening and he probably didn’t expect:
More people converting to Christianity due to the hardships he created economically
Reignited the spirit of Christianity and made us take a long look at ourselves and take corrective action
He exposed the true evils of socialism and who it really serves.
He showed us what true evil looks like and the methods it employs to decieve. Conversely he showed us why living righteously is much healthier for us physically, emotionally, and spiritually
He hardened our resolve and made us want to clean out the trash that us in our government
He made us thankful for what we once had.
I don’t know about you but it sounds like a war cry to change the tides of war to me!
There are plenty of ways Soetoro can destroy the U.S. that don’t require competence. Spending the dollar into oblivion is the main one. He’s doing it. Allowing tens of thousands of Jihadists across the border is another.
Prepare for hyperinflation and terrorist attacks.
The America you know is gone.
I remember when gay meant happy.I’m sure more than a few here on FR do to.
“The America you know is gone.”
I tend to agree. The pro Marxist population continues to expand, and traditional Americans continue to die off.
Having studied Communism, I believe you are correct. The Communists know how to achieve power. And keep it! With no known exceptions, they don't know how to effectively govern. It is really the dictatorship of the proletariat, the dictatorship of the dumbest, as one Eastern European dissident called it.
“With no known exceptions, they don’t know how to effectively govern.”
That is somewhat obvious, considering that they shot people who tried to flee.
the chinese market is profitable, so no doubt amerika can remain profitable even under socialism.
Traditional conservatism lives on as a subculture.
They are HOMOSEXUALS......not gay. Not gonna let them try to dress up putrid behavior. Call a homo a homo
They are truly messed up in the head.
The problem for us is that it’s way too easy for us in our sullen pouts to say God damn (whatever) than God bless it.
And God honors our wish either way. And we end up, in essence, whaling away at mirrors. (That’s what I think hell is going to be like for those who refuse to give themselves up to God.)
I wonder if that evil Jeremiah Wright was more riding on the mood of the land (in ALL colors) rather than driving it?
America still here?
Not the America I used to pledge allegiance to. Been replaced by a sick, perverted, mirror-universe America... where everything once considered good and virtuous is now vilified, and everything once considered vile and debased is celebrated. Mind-boggling debt, open-borders, fag-marriage, a government that has become a corrupt, one-party banana-republic, and a putrid, poisonous culture.
Might it have begun in our own hearts?
I get a very intense sense of deja vu writing this. We got careless and unthankful, and so God mirrored that in our society.
The antidote is to stop cursing things and start asking God to bless them. Which sounds like blasphemy when the things are in bad shape. But remember that with Christ on duty (and He never went off duty) blessing means to move things to righteousness and to shake off sin. I think we want to settle for a sinful paradise more than we realize.
I believe that Obama and company are failing and flailing around because they are soft and incompetent academic marxists with no practical experience. Everything is a exercise in theory.
I.e. there’s no heart in it.
Has that been true of ourselves too?
I think we’ve been passive too much. We need heart and heart can only come from God. And with heart comes wisdom.
And yes I know liberals like to brag about having hearts. I wish they really did! Then they’d avoid foolish excesses. I think they are merely proud of their theory of heart.
If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or, being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or, being hated, don’t give way to hating,
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise;
If you can dream - and not make dreams your master;
If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with triumph and disaster
And treat those two imposters just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to broken,
And stoop and build ‘em up with wornout tools;
If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breath a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: “Hold on”;
If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings - nor lose the common touch;
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run -
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And - which is more - you’ll be a Man my son!
We built this country and we can rebuild it. This is still America no matter who thinks they are in charge. Battles are lost, but wars are won. This war is a long way from over.
Hear hear! More of this, please!
