The Republic's End Times?
A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
each day rolls by now it becomes ever more obvious that "The Republic"
is doomed. I refer to the American constitutional, representative,
were doomed, I suppose, by the very process used to ensure a democracy
... democracy itself. And that is the inherent danger of a democracy,
We were warned well in advance. Yet, we paid no
heed. The man at the center of the transformation of America made no
secret of his intention to fundamentally change America. In fact, he
blatantly told us he intended to do just such a thing. And with a
compliant US Senate made up of mostly Socialists, Marxists,
Progressives, and a very few REAL liberals, they executed a brilliant
coup de tat in plain sight
The risk of electing a dictator, is
always there in a democratic nation. We allow citizens the freedom to
vote for the person they most like, most trust, to lead the country.
All it takes is a bad mistake at the polls by freedom loving voters
misled by slick, smooth, oratory and, let us not forget, the promise or
the implication of… something for nothing. I cannot overemphasize the
importance of the electorate's ignorance. It is my belief that
ignorance played the largest role in the election of Obama to the
presidency of the US than any other single causation.
In a mad
rush to the polls to elect the nation’s first “black” President,
everything else was overlooked. Important things like Obama’s socialist
leanings, his obvious preference of Muslims over those of the Jewish
and Christian faiths, his bent toward collectivism, Marxism, and his
penchant for a “command and control” economy for the US. None of this
mattered to those ignorant of history, ignorant of the philosophies
espoused by and believed in by Mr. Obama. No. What was MOST important
to them was the election of America’s first black president, whatever
And there was a cost. Yes, the bill has come due. The cost was only our country – only the republic.
is a different country than it was just five years ago. America was
still a constitutional republic then. Today, America is a socialist
nation with Progressives/Socialists/Marxists in control of our
government and our economy. The nation is broke and on the cusp of
total collapse. And we are being lied to by our leaders on a regular
basis. They don't even seem to mind when we catch them in a lie,
They are lying to us about the destruction to our
healthcare system by Obamacare which is nothing more than socialized
medicine of which Vladimir Lenin, himself said: "Socialized Medicine is
the Keystone to the Arch of the Socialist State."
lying to us about the number of unemployed persons in America. An
honest assessment of unemployment in America, I believe would render a
percentage closer to 21%.
In my opinion, the government is not only lying to us, but they're cooking the books as well.
plain truth is -- it is going to get a lot worse over the months
ahead. We are beginning to get those manufactured "glowing reports" on
Obamacare designed to hide the fact of its failure and how badly it has
already hurt Americans and the country as a whole. We can expect a
general bump upwards in the economic stats, which will be designed to
point to a "continued" recovery, as we approach the election in
November. Don’t believe them. It will be manufactured propaganda --
What we are seeing in America’s economic decline
today is what always happens when socialists, somehow, gain control of a
nation’s government, and/or a nation’s economy. It dies. Eventually
that nation dies just as America is doing.
Can America be saved? I doubt it.
dear reader, we don't really know just how bad things really are -- and
we won't know, until we clean the government of the miscreants now in
charge. Sadly, even if the GOP gains control of the US Senate at
the polls in November the damage already done the country will take
decades to repair. Such is the virulence of Socialism/Marxism.
country we knew as little as a decade ago no longer exists. How do we
bring that country back? Can we? Frankly, I am not sure it can be
Will we be able to work past the anger, the
suspicion, the lack of trust Americans have for one another today. We
will have to fight the urge to split apart into more than one country.
We may also find that instead of a single country, always at war with
itself, the states may decide to split into two or three coalitions or
confederacies, or, dare I say it… countries.
America is united
in name only today. If we are honest with ourselves we will admit that
America is, at the very least, two countries existing under the banner
of one nation.
First, however, we must stop America’s slide
into oblivion. Then we can decide who and what we want to become. Even
before we do anything we must accept the fact that America, as a
constitutional republic, no longer exists. It may be gone forever. I
sincerely hope not. I hope Americans will decide to recreate America as
its original founders intended. But, we must face the fact that THAT
is not likely to happen.
exists today as just another socialist nation along with its
counterparts in Europe. It is a completely predictable end for a
nation, which deliberately chose ignorance of its history and of its
Ignorance brought America down. There is no other reasonable explanation for the government we have in Washington, DC, today!
