This philosophy has placed the United States in a very vulnerable position internationally. Russia, Iran, Syria, Egypt, China and Afghanistan are a few of the countries that openly laugh at us. Allies such as Israel, Saudi Arabia, and Ukraine have no faith that any promise we make will be kept. We have foolish people like Dick Durbin who thinks the best defense we have is to call Putin a bully. John Kerry is truly to be pitied with his foolish statements such as the biggest threat is global warming and Putin should act like he is in the 21st century. Can anybody blame the people in the other countries when they make us the butt of their jokes? We have become a joke, but when it is you that is the joke and the consequences are so dire, the joke loses its humor.
Domestically we are truly a declining nation and this has added to our loss of influence internationally. We are told our deficit is being cut, but yet our national debt is soaring. We will in all likely hoods be in debt by $18 trillion plus by the end of this year. Our government is taking more money from us than ever and yet our debt grows faster than ever. Our workforce participation is at lows, jobs being created are part time and low paying and real income is on a continual decline. We have more and more regulations being written every day that put greater and greater restraints on business owners and would be business creators. Our energy industry is being controlled and regulated out of existence to appease the green people or the political supporters of the regime.
In the meantime, any resemblance to an open and transparent government with free speech and a free press is being threatened and changed by the Marxist/Progressives in their effort to make us a totalitarian state. We have an imperial executive branch of government. They have neutralized the legislative branch and are neutralizing the judicial branch as well. This is the exact opposite of what the constitution says. The Imperial attitude is in the White House, the IRS, the EPA, HHS and the Judicial Department. It also is evident in the Senate. We are no longer a country with rule of law, but a country with arbitrary law. This means laws can be changed by the executive branch as they see fit and applied to whom they wish to apply them.
We were promised we would be fundamentally transformed by Obama in November of 2008. Even though Obama is a documented liar, this is one promise he made that he meant and he is keeping. Our country is much closer to being a totalitarian state that rewards existence and not production than it was five years ago. We are, as Marx said, a country where all proceeds of production are centralized and shared fairly. We are not a nation who strives to lead but a country who is ashamed of what was our superior productivity and ingenuity that set us apart.
If we are to change directions, we as Freedom Loving Americans must learn what is happening and then boldly confront those Marxist/Progressives and not be concerned about being politically correct.
