Skip to comments.In case Obama is wondering why the Poles support Romney...

Polish-American culture has been impugned and insulted by the current Occupant of the White House. The president's ignorance is apparent when it comes to the long history and perseverance of the Poles in their fight for liberty. To take one notable example, on the 70th anniversary of the Soviet invasion of Poland, Obama announced his cancelation of plans to place missile interceptors there.
Obama has gone out of his way to disrespect the Poles with his "Polish death camps" remark, or his choosing to play golf instead attending the memorial for Polish President Lech Kaczynski, the Polish first lady, and 94 senior officials who perished in the Smolensk air disaster. Yet he is perplexed that the national polls are favoring a Romney victory.
Perhaps Mr. Obama's disdain for the Poles stems from our rejection of his oppressive policies, or from our firm belief in God, or from Poland's rejection of the Euro-socialist state.
Polish immigrants brought our culture of pride, hard work, and religious devotion to the New World. There was no government health care, community outreach, or welfare assistance programs. My Polish ancestors would rather have starved than bring shame to their family and faith by becoming wards of the state. No, they believed that Boże would provide.
Mr. Obama should pay attention to the Poles instead of the polling, for great presidents have stood with us.

It’s even simpler than all that. The Poles, like other Eastern Europeans, can spot a commie a mile away, so they know exactly what Obama is.
It seems that both the Poles and polls support Romney! :)

It is with a strange feeling that those of us who come from the Soviet Union look upon the West of today. It is as though we were neither neighbours on the same planet, nor contemporaries -and yet we contemplate the West from what will be your future, or look back seventy years, to see our past suddenly repeating itself. And what we see is always the same, always the same as it was then: adults deferring to the opinion of their children; the younger generation carried away by shallow worthless ideas; professors scared of being unfashionable; journalists refusing to take responsibility for the words they squander so profusely; universal sympathy for revolutionary extremists; people with serious objections unable or unwilling to voice them; the majority passively obsessed by a feeling of doom; feeble governments; societies whose defensive reactions have become paralysed; spiritual confusion leading to political upheaval.What will happen as a result of all this lies ahead of us. But the time is near, and from bitter memory we can easily predict what these events will be.Excerpt from "West's Betrayal of Civilisation" by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
Great quote. Sad, but great. It’s too bad most people in the West still have no idea who Solzhenitsyn was, much less have read his warnings.

Heres a news item from just this past week I would venture to state that most of the U.S. populace are even aware of this.
I grew up in a socialist country, and I have seen what that does to people. There is no hope, no freedom, no pride in achievement. The nation became poorer and poorer, and thats what I see happening here. As a young boy I was fantasizing about one day going to America, making a success of myself, the American dream. Americas wealth comes from the efforts of people striving for success. Take away their incentive with bad-mouthing success and you take away the wealth that helps us take care of the needy. Yes, in socialism the rich will be poorer, but the poor will also be poorer. People lose interest in really working hard and creating jobs. I think this is a very slippery slope. It seems like people dont learn from the past. Thats why Im voting Republican and putting this ad on television.
I think the problem is, people don’t really want to learn from the past. When they listen to the past, the past tells them that there can be no utopia on this earth. All of the schemes have been attempted and failed miserably. They’re left with the stark realism that life will never be perfect, and there will always be serious problems to face. So, they would rather ignore the past, and place their faith in one utopian pipedream or another.
Now, I have faith in God, so my yearning for utopia is satisfied by looking to the next world. Atheists I talk to think I must be stupid to believe that. However, they are usually earthly utopianists of one sort or another. I can absolutely disprove any of their ideologies with simple logic, but they can never disprove the existence of God, or a better world to come. So, who is stupider? The one who puts their faith in something they can’t prove? Or the one who puts their faith in something anyone can disprove?
