I Fear For My Country
A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
In 2009 I wrote the following: “I fear for my country. America has gone from a vibrant capitalist society to a dying socialist society almost overnight. We have become an impotent sleeping giant sprawled across the globe whiling away our days dreaming of a socialist utopia that does not exist and never has. If anything, we among all, people are the most to be pitied. How pathetic we have become. We have traded our shining city on a hill for a government low-rent housing project. The worst of it is… we did it of our own free will!
Yes, democracy can be a dangerous way to govern a country as the German people learned when allied bombs were raining down on their cities. They chose the Furher of their own free will and they paid a price no nation should ever have to pay.
For democracy to exist, to thrive, and to survive, it is incumbent, it is REQUIRED, that the electorate is intelligent, learned, and knowledgeable people. Because it is they who decide, by their votes, whether democracy, in a free country, lives or dies.
The overriding question today is… Can America even survive? The answer, realistically, is… NO, she cannot… not if she continues the course she chose in 2008. Having said that, we must also say that YES, America can survive… IF she changes course and returns to her roots as a capitalist, democratic representative republic.
There is likely to be a historic internal struggle in America over the next few years to decide the issue of whether America lives or dies. It will be ugly as such struggles always are. The first indication of which form of government Americans really want is likely to come in 2010 when Americans return to the polls. If socialist candidates are thrown out and defeated, there is REAL HOPE. If not, rest assured the struggle will go on for many decades into the future. America will be a troubled land for our grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Old America is gone. This New America cannot hold a candle to the greatness of the old America.”
Earlier this week we learned that China’s economy will surpass that of the US by 2016. In an article by Brett Arends, MarketWatch, entitled: “IMF bombshell: Age of America nears end” Mr. Arends says: “According to the latest IMF official forecasts, China’s economy will surpass that of America in real terms in 2016 — just five years from now.
Put that in your calendar.
It provides a painful context for the budget wrangling taking place in Washington right now. It raises enormous questions about what the international security system is going to look like in just a handful of years. And it casts a deepening cloud over both the U.S. dollar and the giant Treasury market, which have been propped up for decades by their privileged status as the liabilities of the world’s hegemonic power.”
Mr. Arends goes on to say: “According to the IMF forecast, whoever is elected U.S. president next year — Obama? Mitt Romney? Donald Trump? — will be the last to preside over the world’s largest economy.” (You may read the entire article HERE.)
Well, there it is. I actually never thought I would live to see America brought low. But, what we are experiencing here in America is the death of our country at our own hands. It is suicide.
It has been known, for an exceedingly long time, that democracies have a few fatal flaws. In the case of America, we have murdered our country through the use of two of those fatal flaws. Number one: As soon as the electorate realizes it can vote itself money from the country’s treasury, it will break itself, financially, and thus collapse. Number two: In a democracy, it is entirely possible to elect leadership that is not interested in the betterment of the country. In our case, we elected leadership determined to “fundamentally change” America. He has kept his promise.
Honestly, I don’t think we CAN save America. I think the only hope for a free country, on these shores, rests with a small nucleus of Americans who saw this coming, warned, and warned, and warned -- anyone who would listen -- that it WAS COMING, and are now considered a threat to those elements of the US government who fear, now that their façade has broken and fallen away, that those freedom lovers just might, through political resistance, impede their progress in continuing to disassemble America and remake it into a communist/marxist third-world dung heap.
And don’t forget this: If you think the world has been troubled before, wait until there is NO American leadership. We are getting a taste of it right now in the Middle East.
The point is – the decline of America means the decline of the world … period. We can expect a world in chaos, utter and complete.
So, once more I am going to issue my warning: The stage has been set for a one-world government (Global Governance) to take charge of all the countries of the world. It will be dictatorial – it must be. Preparations have been underway for such a global government for many years now.
Such a government will bring nothing but continued war around the globe. The so-called “Responsibility to Protect” will guarantee it. In a hundred years, or less, the planet will resemble a cinder pockmarked by the ravages of multiple wars raging simultaneously on this once beautiful jewel of our solar system.
This is what America chose. This is what the WORLD chose.
Is there hope? Keep your eye on the remnant.
