America is still here, ain't it?

Posted on 01/05/2014 7:38:08 PM PST by RoosterRedux

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 aren’t gay and we aren’t 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.

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.

the chinese market is profitable, so no doubt amerika can remain profitable even under socialism.

Traditional conservatism lives on as a subculture.

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.

Rudyard Kipling
If

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!

The America you know is gone.

The America we've known and loved didn't exist until good men found their courage and dared to create it out of nothing. They stood and fought against the same type of people who are dismantling the foundations of our country today.

It's possible to restore the America we love, but it won't be done without a fight. It's up to each of us to determine whether we're willing to stand as our forefathers did, or allow their sacrifices and hard work to slip into the pages of history.

yes, the marxist/democrat population is being imported from Mexico, and other 3rd world hellholes. it all started with the 1965 immigration act. before that immigrants to the USA came almost exclusively from Europe

30 years ago ,99% of chineese were living in the stone age under socialism

it is only when China allowed private ownership of busineess(capitalism) that it started to prosper economically,

socialism is government ownership, government running things

capitalism is private ownership of businesses

china has many private companies and many American companies like Walmart,mcdonalds, are in China now. Toyota also in China . that's not socialism

socialism really is single payer, one owner = the government.

the type of government can be totalitarian but it's how much interference and how much private ownership that is allowed in the economy that determines the sucess of the economy

so clearly if government laws and regulations on business are reduced then businesses will prosper more here.

reduce taxes, privatize many things, reduce government laws regulations ,get government size down and the economy will take off and so would freedom

Alex, this is a war for the heart and soul of this country. We might not be hiding behind trees shooting at redcoats, but we are fighting just the same. We are fighting rampant corruption, racial divides that never had to be, perversion, decadence, an ever expanding federal government that does not have OUR interests at their core or anywhere along the line, the destruction and abuse of our military, the brainwashing of our children, the theft of our property, a broken voting system that literally takes the meaning out of our votes. We are fighting for our voice which is heard but ignored. We are fighting a full scale invasion of this country by illegals which includes Lord knows how many jihadis.
WE haven’t fired any shots...yet, but we are being pushed from every direction known to man, and eventually, that will happen if they find the right button to push.
If this is not a war, I don’t know what is.

“We might not be hiding behind trees shooting at redcoats, but we are fighting just the same.”
______________________________________________
I understand that, but I have had no definition of “fight” from anyone. Just how do you do it? Do you punch your leftist neighbor in the face? Do you burn down Dimocrap headquarters? Do you invade the Whitehut? Do you storm Congress? Do you march in the streets? No, you may argue with a few leftist neighbors, but you have zero impact.
It is logical to say that you talk to your middle of the road Democrat neighbors, or hold public rallies, but “fight” is pretty much an empty word in this case.

The problem is that traditional Americans are now far outnumbered by the give-me crowd.
It was at least ten years ago that I realized that America would not return to the country that I grew up in, and my ancestry goes back to the real Uncle Sam, 1812.

I chose to spend my senior years with an international life to see how others live. I did my duty as a loyal American, from Boy Scouts to civil defense, Civil Air Patrol, volunteer fireman, to most every volunteer civic activity.

Yes, nothing compares to the OLD America that I grew up in, but just like the founding fathers, I saw when my home country had left me.

yer stating the obvious ... to an educated supply-sider, no less.

the current Chinese model is the kind of capitalism we can do without. It is also the kind of marxism we can do without.

I still think Obummer can upset the apple cart in so many ways for so many peopl that we’ll spend years of infighting just to get back to where we are now — or better yet, where we were 20 years.

We are a resilient people, but our strength and resilience haven’t been seriously tested in many years. That may change soon.

You have a very optimistic view; I take a darker one. Gun laws are racheting down to include those who don't need to be banned. That will not ever be reversed. Obamacare is one of the most pernicious wealth-transfer schemes ever devised by the Communists. That will not ever be reversed. Voter fraud is such that even after 4 years of a disastrous regime, Republicans -- who they claimed wouldn't go to the polls -- were incredibly undercounted. The voter fraud will not ever be reversed.

Because you will NEVER see another Republican -- much less CONSERVATIVE -- President in your lifetime, the job-killing arbitrary and capricious regulations of the EPA will never be reversed. The NSA, heinously spying on every single American -- and creating a blackmail dossier by so doing -- will never be reversed.

It took one-and-one-half whole generations for the Soviets to throw off the chains of Communism, and even then, they slid back into a form of tyranny.

We will throw the chains off quicker -- maybe only one generation -- but we will not be around to see it. And who knows what follows?

It looks worldwide, too. It seems the great human experiment with freedom is over.
