Skip to comments.The night we waved goodbye to America... our last best hope on Earth
Posted on 11/09/2008 2:29:34 AM PST by Chet 99
I was in Washington DC the night of the election. Americas beautiful capital has a sad secret. It is perhaps the most racially divided city in the world, with 15th Street which runs due north from the White House the unofficial frontier between black and white. But, like so much of America, it also now has a new division, and one which is in many ways much more important. I had attended an election-night party in a smart and liberal white area, but was staying the night less than a mile away on the edge of a suburb where Spanish is spoken as much as English, plus a smattering of tongues from such places as Ethiopia, Somalia and Afghanistan.
As I walked, I crossed another of Washingtons secret frontiers. There had been a few white people blowing car horns and shouting, as the result became clear. But among the Mexicans, Salvadorans and the other Third World nationalities, there was something like ecstasy.
They grasped the real significance of this moment. They knew it meant that America had finally switched sides in a global cultural war. Forget the Cold War, or even the Iraq War. The United States, having for the most part a deeply conservative people, had until now just about stood out against many of the mistakes which have ruined so much of the rest of the world.
Suspicious of welfare addiction, feeble justice and high taxes, totally committed to preserving its own national sovereignty, unabashedly Christian in a world part secular and part Muslim, suspicious of the Great Global Warming panic, it was unique.

This has to be one of the best things I have read concerning this election. If only I could save it and read it, say 1-2 years from now...
bump for later
Well copy the text and save it... or print it out and frame it. ;o) Yes a very good article... I’m depressed.
The worst aspect of what is to come.
Welcome to the
obama and his adoring bots
This too shall pass...
You can save it. Just copy paste and save.
Good article. Thanks for posting.
ping and reping K
But conservatives all over the world must not give up!
It’s not all over!
American people is still a sensible conservative people for a few years....
The OBAMA’s coup(stolen election)was made possible only by GWBUSH’s AND McCAIN’s weaknesses...
It will be a hard time worth fighting for freedom and founding christian values
of course it will. The question is how many of us will survive?
It probably did all along, I've read similar reports throughout the election. However much of it is filtered through the red media at home. So...nada...just nada gets through.
We'vebeen had by an open socialist coupe. It remains to be seen how we as a people deal with the tyrannists who have now pulled off a bloodless revolution.
You should be depressed!
There is no hope left on earth, save Christ returning. That was probably God's plan all along.
Absolutely THE best. The author really captures the impact the Obama regime is going to have on our nation for years to come. I would only disagree about the descent into Third World status. I don’t think it’ll be permanent, because enough people are going to wake up in 2010 and slap a mid-term electoral shackle on this madness.
They preferred to posture on the world stage. Scared of confronting Left-wing teachers and sexual revolutionaries at home, they could order soldiers to be brave on their behalf in far-off deserts. And now the US, like Britain before it, has begun the long slow descent into the Third World. How sad. Where now is our last best hope on Earth?
The typical Rockefeller country club republican is a disaster, shows cowardice in the face of conflict, sees "compromise" as the highest value and needs to be purged from the party. PRINCIPLED Conservatives MUST take over. We'd better get ready to fight or this guys prophecy of a slow descent will be true. I'm not ready to concede yet!
