Will This Be America’s Last Independence Day?
Gateway Pundit ^ | July 4,2012 | Jim Hoft

Posted on 07/04/2012 11:58:31 AM PDT by Hojczyk

How many of you out there today are asking the same question? Will today be America’s last Independence Day?

After three and a half years of Barack Obama the economy is in ruins. The regulations more oppressive. The government is more intrusive. And the future looks bleak.

Think of this – Just three and a half years ago– ** In President Bush’s last year in office, 2008, the deficit reached $459 billion. Today, for the third year in a row, the US deficit is over a trillion dollars (and Obama still says it’s Bush’s fault). This is after he promised to cut the deficit in half.

** Real GDP has risen 0.8% over the 13 quarters since the Great Recession began, compared to an average increase of 9.9% in past recoveries. It is the worst recovery on record.

** On July 3, 2008 — the day before Independence Day — Barack Obama said that adding $4 trillion in debt was irresponsible and “unpatriotic.

** Obama is the worst jobs president since the Great Depression. The jobs recession is the longest since World War II.

** Government agents are now grabbing your crotch at the airport and frisking your grandmother.

An Obama TSA agent marches away after bringing a passenger to tears at a Midwest airport.

** The Obama EPA is spying on Iowa farmers in planes but holding talks with the Taliban.

** Obama blew a trillion dollars on a stimulus and downgraded the economy.

** Since the recession ended in June 2009, the number of new enrollees on disability is twice the job growth figure.

** Obama passed the largest intrusive tax in world history while lying and calling it healthcare.

Obama wants more change. He wants more control. His plans include more devastation. Can America really survive another four years under Barack Obama?

Regardless of what Obama has done to this country, we will get it back and bring it back to what it is supposed to be. I believe the American people still have it in them and I won’t give up them. It won’t be easy but it will be done.

The last Independence Day was last year...

The TRAITOR John Roberts saw to that.

Let me wish all FReepers a very happy if not somber Independence Day. Let us all remember the Founders today and the grand plan they had for this republic. Let us all reflect on what we’ve been through these last 236 years, and let us endeavor to turn back the tide of Socialism, Fascism, and Communism that is now lapping at our shore.

That being said, I will go on record, as I have numerous times over the last 3 years, that this will be America’s last Independence Day insomuch as Obama will ensure no voting will occur in November through an eventual call for martial law and suspension of elections. As the heat goes up, both temperature and political, Obama will feel less inclined to abide by any of our laws.

My bet is still early September.

I'm very sorry to admit that I am.

After three and a half years of Barack Obama the economy is in ruins. The regulations more oppressive. The government is more intrusive. And the future looks bleak.

And it's not just that. It's the fact that, from what I understand, everybody hates the guy, he's supposedly floundering so badly he can't possibly win the election, his AG is in danger of impeachment, etc., yet he wins battle after battle after battle and seems to have no opposition in the political class despite the fact that the people are united almost 100% against him.

How is this even happening?

We stopped being free when the 16th Amendment was passed. Since then we have all become slaves.

Until we get rid of it and the IRS we will continue to be slaves. Slavery has nothing to do with color.

America is in essence not so much a country as it is a way of life. An enemy may occupy a country. An idea is much harder to kill.

Take off those rose colored glasses! Or what the heck, leave them on. Escaping reality is all we have left.

Independence Day now seems more a commemoration than a celebration.

I'm fixing:

Charbroiled prime beef jumbo cheese burgers cooked to order.

French fried sweet potatoes.

Primo Margaritas.

Flying the American Flag from my WWII combat veteran Dad's coffin.

When I can't do these things then Independence Days have ended... at least for me.

I don’t know just what my democrat socialist friends and relatives think that they’re celebrating today!!! “Interdependence”, heavy hand of State, robbing Peter to pay Paul day? . . . The traditional May Day communist celebration was two months ago!

I’m wearing black funery polo shirt and the rear window has a Gadsen flag sticker. So Sad.

Gone baby Gone, except for the refuge I can find here,the loves that exemplifies the spirit of 76, here at Free Republic.

We are no longer free.

The Obama administration pushed the US well over the tipping point.

I am starting to get truly pissed off with the negativism and pessimism I have been seeing in the last few days.

NO. America is not on the brink of collapse!

NO. Things now are not worse than they have ever been!

NO. Democrats today are not the most radical and nasty than they have ever been!

YES. It is likely that Republicans are going to be in charge of both houses of congress after the next election, even if the POTUS is a liberal Republican. And far more of these congressmen and senators will be REAL conservatives, not RINOs!

YES. The bureaucracy is going to be taken down a bunch of pegs, and money will be flowing back to the Pentagon.

YES. There is going to be full scale energy production again. The price of oil and gas will drop, coal will likely be re-legalized, and even nuclear energy will get a shot in the arm.

YES. This will do wonders for the economy and lift us out of the “Obama depression”.


And if you act right now, you get, absolutely free, to annoy the hell out of the leftists and Democrats, by showing the stars and stripes to everyone you see, and crying out “God Bless America!”

NO! It is going to be a hard road back—but I have great faith in the American People. We have been hit before and came back—But I fear, the road will not be easy and many may not live though the fight. Our enemies are dedicated and fanatical. They will not give up without a fight. Once people see the truth (they are waking up now) they will return America—we will no longer be a nation of group/victims but a nation of winners.

“An idea is much harder to kill.”

Congressional Record—Appendix, pp. A34-A35
January 10, 1963

Current Communist Goals



Thursday, January 10, 1963

Mr. HERLONG. Mr. Speaker, Mrs. Patricia Nordman of De Land, Fla., is an ardent and articulate opponent of communism, and until recently published the De Land Courier, which she dedicated to the purpose of alerting the public to the dangers of communism in America.

At Mrs. Nordman’s request, I include in the RECORD, under unanimous consent, the following “Current Communist Goals,” which she identifies as an excerpt from “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen:

[From “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen]


1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.

2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.

3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.

4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.

5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.

6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.

7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.

8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev's promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.

9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.

10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.

11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)

12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.

13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.

14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.

15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.

16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.

17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.

18. Gain control of all student newspapers.

19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.

20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions.

21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.

22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”

23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”

24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.

25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”

27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a “religious crutch.”

28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”

29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.

30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”

31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.” Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.

32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture—education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.

33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.

34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.

35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.

36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.

37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.

38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].

39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.

40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.

41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.

42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use [”]united force[”] to solve economic, political or social problems.

43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.

44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.

45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike.


They've been at it for 60+ years, eroding, eviscerating, polluting, and indoctrinating.

We have at least two generations of sheeple who believe that communism, socialism, “social justice” is better then the free market aka FREEDOM.

They, believe in their doctrine of “fairness” as much as we believe in freedom.

Brace for another epic battle my FRiend.

Freaky. I just asked myself that very question about 2 minutes ago, before I opened FR. Then I changed the question to “How many Independence Days does the country have left?”. Guess I’m not the only one expecting the worst...:(
