Cultural decadence follows when individuals lose their virtue. Widespread drug use, fornication, and a lack of personal responsibility are now the norm. The popular culture and and political outcomes simply follow. Obama is no accident or fluke. He sadly does reflect the “values” of the majority.
The Nazis were the National Socialist Party. The Nazis wanted to grab everyone’s guns.
Socialism, gun grabbing. No parallels with Obama here. Not at all.
Do I need a “sarc” tag?
“What can we do to win your vote?”
I just wonder what the answers will be to that question as I begin this parlor game in my town.
Its a messianic cult of personality.
I'm afraid the only thing that would convince all these malcontents and ignoramuses to ditch King Baractacus is living in the fully socialist country which Emperor Obama wants all Americans to live. After about two to five years, most of the malcontents would be screaming to get out of The Socialist States of America.
We like to think otherwise, but our species, Homo sapiens, is not that long out of the trees and the same laws of nature that affect all of Gods creatures apply equally to us. If we were to observe any other species that had been allowed to reproduce without limitations, we would know immediately what the consequences will be.
Whenever the weak; lazy; and stupid of a species is allowed to reproduce unimpeded by predators that feed off the weak; lazy; and stupid, they soon outnumber the strong, quick, and intelligent. After a while, the entire population becomes weak; lazy; stupid, and then the population collapses. When this collapse occurs within human populations, its referred to as a Malthusian Collapse.
These collapses have occurred at frequent intervals throughout human history, and Western Civilization is, in my humble opinion, currently on the cusp of one of these collapses.
For those interested in what Thompson had to say, I would (very highly) recommend her book “Dorothy Thompson’s Political Guide”. In this short, well-written effort, she distinguishes true liberal thought from collectivism in any of its manifestations.
Dare I say it would make a fine Christmas gift for students, perhaps especially those prone to confusing Obama’s spirit-crushing, soul-draining, idiocy with actual social progress?
Worth printing out and studying.
Every fanaticism is dangerous, even for people who know them to be fanatical and who reject them.
Our President lacks humility altogether. He recognizes the power of nothing and no one outside or above himself. He is an arrogant and small-minded person.
“There is no respect for others without humility in one’s self.” Henri Frederic Amiel
These people are very dangerous ‘leaders’, if they can be said to ‘lead’ at all.
I am concerned by a number of people who seem to believe that giving the left what it wants in sky-high taxes and laws supporting bad behavior will result in the left being shocked to their senses and lead them to a sane, conservative way of life. History doesn’t provide evidence for that. More likely is that, even in the event of a societal collapse due to their own choices, the left would simply continue in that path or bounce from one messy government to another. Centuries of miserable existence are typical of such societies and there are many nations that provide evidence of this.
The author can't do that fairly, and still escape the clutches of Godwin's Law. Which last was invented by liberals to keep themselves from being appraised fairly.
I cannot imagine the "Obama-phone lady" attending any kind of dinner party.
Not even one where Eddie Murphy was a guest.
And I guess whoever wrote this article can't tell Eddie Murphy from Will Smith.
She must have massive boulders between her ears.
What is fascinating about these exercizes put out by American Thinker and ilk like it seeking to prove that Obama is a socialist is like having your dog barking after the thief has left your premises empty ....We already know Obama is a socialist ...what the public must be made aware of is what disasters await US now ....AND HOW ANY WHY OBAMA GOT TO THIS POINT....
Obama got the Good German Vote, no doubt about it. Republicans and Conservatives are the “new” Jews circa 1936.
They have been emboldened with the Reelection of Obama. Things will only get progressively worse as the second Obama Term drones on.
The Democrats would rather have Republicans and Conservatives destroyed before they would wish the same on Jihadists and the Taliban.
