A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
Isn't it ironic that it is a black man, an African-American, (Well, at least half African-American, anyway.) as President of the United States of America, ushering in the return of SLAVERY to America? Doesn't it just strike you as W R O N G, somehow?
Of course, it’s wrong. It doesn't make much difference who the President is when a government goes to the dogs, as the United States government has done over the past year. But it DOES make a difference when that President is leading an entire nation into slavery to HIS government!
It has been said you cannot find anyone to defend slavery -- but it is easy to find many who will defend socialism. This really puzzles me as socialism IS slavery by another name.
The Obama Regime and the so-called Democratic Party, of which he is the head, have forsaken their old political philosophy and adopted, wholesale, the philosophy of the Socialists and Marxists and Communists of the world. They call themselves "Progressives” which has been the code word, for decades, by which communists identify themselves to one another.
It was no accident, and it was not the fates, that caused the US economy to nose dive when it did. No, I am convinced it was planned. It was supposed to break the American spirit to make it easier for Obama's socialists to take over the country and ram socialism down our throats before we had a chance to react. And it almost worked. Almost.
A little less than half the country balked. We smelled a rat. Those of us, of a certain age, as they say, had seen this all before, in Hitler's Nationalist Socialist Party in Germany, in the Bolshevik revolution in what became Soviet Socialist Russia. We had seen the people worship Hitler and Lenin, and we saw the people worship Obama in the very same manner. We were not fooled for a single moment. We KNEW OBAMA WOULD LEAD THE US TO DESTRUCTION. And he is doing just that!
Socialism IS Slavery! With slavery you have NO CHOICE. With socialism you have No CHOICE. Socialism takes what you have by force. Think about it! We fought a war over this very thing! Now we are embracing it? Hell, NO! Not Me! Not Now! Not EVER! And I am not alone. I'm just one of the few making all the noise about it.
Some one has written that socialism is slavery as a government enterprise. Whoever said it was spot on!
Herbert Spencer, an English philosopher, prominent classical liberal political theorist, and sociological theorist of the Victorian era said: "All socialism involves slavery. That which fundamentally distinguishes the slave is that he labours under coercion to satisfy another's desires." Mr. Spencer was right.
It is a sorry state of affairs when the black community in America migrates back onto a plantation. However, THIS time, their white brothers and sisters, their Hispanic brothers and sisters, and their Native American brothers and sisters have joined them on the plantation. The "Big House" is the White House, which has, (gasp!) a BLACK SLAVE MASTER ensconced therein, like a king! This time it is Uncle Sam’s Plantation! How WRONG is this? How "turned-around" is this?
Of course it is wrong! This is America! The land of the free! Not quite! Make that the "Land of the FORMERLY FREE!"
The very nature of the beast (in this case the beast is Man) is freedom. There is a longing within the breast of man to be free. Ever since The Creator, Himself, instilled "free-will" into his creation, man has craved, coveted, and sought freedom, even freedom from God, his creator. Yes, man can be denied freedom, for a while, but soon he will rebel against his masters and he will do whatever it takes to secure his freedom again. Many of those who are advocates of socialism never seem to understand that. Those that DO understand it understand that socialism is slavery and their intent is to enslave their fellowman.
A very wise person once said: “The purpose of Liberty is Individual Freedom; the purpose of socialism is slavery. The two philosophies are diametrically opposed. Yet they are the only choices available to humanity. Freedom or Slavery. And if one studies slavery, e.g. U.S.S.R., China, Rumania, Albania, Cuba, Attila the Hun, you will inexorably discover the core evil of socialism.” Truer words were never spoken.
As each day passes the socialist government of the US is forging more chains to bind the American slaves. They will continue to enslave their fellowman as long as we allow it. And therein lies the key to regaining our freedom as Americans and as human beings. We have the power to stop them. The question is: Do we have the will?
The election of November 2010 will provide the answer. If the election is allowed to stand, which I have serous doubts about, then we must toss out every incumbent politician on every ballot for the US Senate and the US House of Representatives -- and -- we need to look for their sympathizers, lower down on the ballot, and toss them out, too.
We can no longer compromise our freedom by allowing those in office now to remain in office. They must go.
The next eleven months will be critical for America. America will live or die depending upon the results of the election of 2010. The America of the Founding Fathers, the America of the Constitution, cannot survive with the current crop of leaders we have in Washington today. Socialism will slowly rot the heart from America as it does all nations experimenting with it.
With every poll one thing becomes ever more clear. Americans want SMALLER government and fewer services from that government, which will, of course, result in lower taxes and less intrusion into our lives by that same government.
We can have a smaller government but we will have to fight for it. If we do not the America of 50 states will exist for a few more years, but only a few. States will begin declaring themselves independent. That is what the recent sovereignty movement among the states was all about. It is preparation for secession from the US.
Washington had better understand. There is SERIOUS disagreement between the states and the federal government. Just as my ancestors did, nearly 150 years ago, the people of the states are instructing their state legislatures to prepare, to get ready, to go it alone without assistance from the federal government. And just as Washington did, 150 years ago, Washington does not believe the American people, would turn their backs on them and form a new country of their own. Well, Washington was wrong then and Washington is wrong now. I may not live to see that day arrive, but never fear, it is on the way and Washington will be just as surprised when the first couple of states pull away as they were in the 1860's.
We can save America. But we cannot save America with the government we have now. The Socialist government America has today is a death sentence for the country. It will be a slow agonizing death. Like cancer it must be cut from the body if the body is expected to have any chance of survival.
The sooner America purges our current socialist government from our country, the sooner we can be about recovery. But -- without the purge -- America will surely die.
