In 2008, Democrats campaigned on promises to change the way Washington conducts business. But now amid the worst economic times since the Great Depression, the tyrants are indulging a job-killing ideology in a war of wills against us, the people. The government of the people has betrayed the people. Government by and for the people is a memory.
In commandeering control over our bodies with Obamacare and over our finances and private lives with financial “reform,” Democrats have carried betrayal to a level that will be neither forgotten nor forgiven.
In order to realize a “benevolent” totalitarian vision, progressives have long sought to control the nation’s consciousness. But what the tyrants have now done is anger the people. Barack Obama and congressional Democrats feigned compassion and vision, but proceeded to unleash a reign of terror aimed at managing every aspect of our lives.
And now traditional America is waking up.
For decades traditionalists remained passive while zealots like Barack Obama hid flawed thinking and defective character behind Hopey-Changey vision. Today’s Democrats offer the same theoretical nonsense pushed by past collectivists that promised to perfect the human race by decree.
Many Americans knew all along that the radical Obama would drive radical transformation. But as the man campaigned for President, he used speechwriter-written eloquence to explain away malignant associations with a racist anti-American minister, a violent radical who bombed the Pentagon, an anti-Israel Islamist sympathizer, and a dedicated communist. With the media running interference, evidence of an anti-capitalist, anti-American worldview went unheeded—and people clung to hope.
Twenty-one months after voters elected hope and change, hope has decayed to fear and anger, while change has metastasized into upheaval. We now face daunting challenges: gargantuan debt and escalating taxation, indoctrination posing as education, federal burdens on manufacturing and investing, continuing disastrous lending mandates, a government health care takeover, and still the possibilities of suffocating energy taxes and voting rights for illegals-turned-citizens. If America stays on the road built by tyranny, with government attacking the people, prospects for prosperity will fade.
The tyrants have betrayed us, and retaliate we will.
In November, voters will hire a government that rejects fallacy and acknowledges human nature. Traditional Americans will insist on the reestablishment of government set forth by the Constitution, a government that frees people to pursue happiness and doesn’t demand subservience that destroys freedom and precludes happiness.
Voters who want to choose their own cars, doctors, schools, and bankers will punish the ruling class for government intrusion. Elected know-it-alls who want to control our dinner menus, electricity usage, and thermostat settings will find themselves unelected. Achievers want to be free to achieve, not forced to bow to collective “equality” in the interest of “fairness.” Tyranny is on notice. The purge is coming.
The tyrants are easily identified. Left-ideologues in unions and in socialist, “social justice,” “economic justice,” and “environmental justice” groups are partnering with Democrats to impose über-controlling agendas on the people. With the alliances now obvious, the people have begun to rebel and insist on a return to the principles that drove the biggest expansion of freedom and prosperity in the history of the world.
Traditional Americans grasp the wickedness of “helping” the poor so completely that motivation to rise from poverty dies. Clear thinkers see the injustice in robbing earners to reward non-earners. The American people sense that if the progressive menace isn’t stopped, then more tyranny and betrayal await us.
Since Marx’s time, people who misinterpret history and ignore human nature have hatched social programs out of illogic and contrived compassion. Today’s progressive elites follow the same broken compass, pushing new misguided programs. Critics who expose failed old ideas are accused by elites of rejecting wonderful new ideas. But now after the great betrayal, the people will dismiss the betrayers.
History is written by courageous heroes, everyday people whose lives are bettered by the heroes, and cowardly tyrants who betray the people’s trust. Voters will write the next pages of American history by electing men and women to squash the tyranny that threatens to kill a noble and exceptional country. The newly-elected had better not betray us. We are in no mood for more betrayal.
The light of the world has dimmed, true. People all over the planet wonder if America has gone mad, if freedom, prosperity, and leadership will be extinguished by treachery. But Democrats’ treachery has awakened a giant, for the people will not tolerate iron rule.
Few actions possess tyranny’s power to fill tyranny’s victims with resolve. Nothing motivates more than betrayal.
