Re: Marcus Tullius Cicero quote (Post 16):
“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within”
The fools among us think that Obama is something new, when in fact Marcus Tullius Cicero described him to a “T” 2,100 years ago.
Yep, your post brings George Santaya to mind:
"Those who do not know history are doomed to repeat it"
There is nothing new under the sun. History, even modern history records where godless Marxist, fascist, totalitarian tyranny leads. And exactly what happens when the tyrants are allowed to take power then confiscate the guns.
Mass murder and genocide by armed government thugs quickly follows. It’s no wonder that the socialist left has removed the real history lessons from the curriculum and replaced it with the joys of socialism. Also have removed all references to God and sin and replace it with if it feels good, do it.
And no longer teach about the American founding, liberty, constitution and patriotism, but rather push the godless, socialist lie and teach that patriotism is a threat and that the capitalist profit motive is evil and that God is a fairy tale. Abortion is good and a human right and that homosexuality is natural, normal, good, wholesome, healthy and desirable.
We know the end of this story because we’ve studied history all of our long lives. But our younger generations have not. Truth is not known to them. The ugly truth is hidden.
Public schools have for the most part been taken over by the godless government worker union thugs and propagandists. Our children are no longer taught, they are indoctrinated. Those who resist are punished.
Reagan said that freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. The Marxist/socialist/fascist thugs are working overtime to see that our youngest generations are left without the knowledge or the means to resist.
Forgive them Father, for they know not what they do.
