The United States of America is morally bankrupt.
President John Adams once said, “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” -October 11, 1798.
Thomas Jefferson wrote: “God who gave us life gave us liberty. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are a gift from God? That they are not to be violated but with His wrath? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, and that His justice cannot sleep forever.”
The revisionist historians in the public education system have “covered up” God for decades. Recent generations do not know that America was once a nation of moral people. Now, over half the people in America are not well informed and are willing to believe the liberal fascist propaganda from the left.
Both the Democrats and Republicans are notorious for wanting to stay in power. Both have made keeping the morally corrupt two party system a priority. The main stream media has colluded with both parties to preserve the two party system and exclude any and all other parties from the political process. Voters get their news and information from TV. They have been very successful.
In the future, after it becomes obvious that their plan failed, these “useful idiots” will still blame Bush.
Such people are the product of America’s decaying society whose reality has been warped by the entertainment and news media combined with the leftist public education system.
The alienation of God in society began in the classroom. Moral decay followed. Hollywood portrays the sane as the insane. The abnormal and perverted as normal. Is it any wonder America is in trouble?
“Freedom of the press” means the media will be free to report what it wants you to know. ABC, CBS, NBC , MSNBC, CNN are similar to the former Soviet Union’s “Pravda”.
When Alexander Solzhenitsyn came to America he warned the US in the 70′s:
“Society appears to have little defense against the abyss of human decadence, such as, for example, misuse of liberty for moral violence against young people, motion pictures full of pornography, crime and horror. It is considered to be part of freedom and theoretically counter-balanced by the young people’s right not to look or not to accept. Life organized legalistically has thus shown its inability to defend itself against the corrosion of evil”(speech to Harvard 1978).
The American press laughed at him and turned a deaf ear at his observations of America’s immorality. Solzhenitsyn also warned long ago of today’s socialism:
“A number of such critics turn to socialism, which is a false and dangerous current.”
The danger is already here and the situation gets worse with every passing day. Obama is trying to put duct tape on a sinking ship. But only when the majority of Americans return to the morals and ethics of our forefathers and the founders of this once great nation, will the situation improve.
“Those who will not be governed by God will be ruled by tyrants.” -William Penn (American hero of Liberty and religious freedom).
” We’ve staked our future on our ability to follow the Ten Commandments with all of our heart.” - James Madison, 1778, to the General Assembly of the State of Virginia.
American society began it’s moral nose dive almost five decades. Call it Marxism, Socialism, Statism or Communism. It’s all a form of liberal fascism, “political correctness”, the cancer of self responsibility and freedom that has always been spread by progressives.
During the First World War, Woodrow Wilson and the progressive movement used war as a means to rally society to the collective good of the nation. George Perkins, a financier of progressive causes at the time, boasted that the First World War “is striking down individualism and building up collectivism.” Michael McGerr, in his book A Fierce Discontent: The Rise and Fall of the Progressive Movement in America, cited one progressive who championed the war claiming, “Laissez-faire is dead. Long live social control.”
Jonah Goldberg, in his well regarded book Liberal Fascism, noted that “[m]ore dissidents were arrested or jailed in a few years under Wilson than under Mussolini during the entire 1920s.” Americans often ignore our history and often the media forgets history when it choses to report or not report something.
In May of 1918, several hundred publications were denied access to the postal service. As Goldberg documented in Liberal Fascism, “In Wisconsin a state official got two and a half years for criticizing a Red Cross fund-raising drive. A Hollywood producer received a ten-year stint in jail for making a film that depicted British troops committing atrocities during the American Revolution. One man was brought to trial for explaining in his own home why he didn’t want to buy Liberty Bonds.”
This was the state acting on its own. Consider though the American Protective League, officially approved by then Attorney General Thomas Gregory, and composed of private citizens acting as a “secret” organization. The organization harassed individuals and businesses, threatening and bullying any who stood in the way of the goals of the state. They spied on their neighbors, read their mail, and acted in ways similar to the variously colored shirted organizations in Europe and former European colonies. In fact, even Woodrow Wilson had misgivings about them writing Attorney General Gregory, “It would be dangerous to have such an organization operating in the United States, and I wonder if there is any way in which we could stop it?” Wilson did not stop it.
These were not right wingers. The APL and similar groups may have targeted unions, but did so on the belief that unions were disrupting activities of the progressive state, e.g. undermining Wilson’s war effort.
The re-emerged progressive movement, springing to action to “agitate” (their word choice) for President Obama’s agenda is troubling. There is a pattern of behavior within the modern progressive movement against dissent echoing the progressive movement during Woodrow Wilson’s tenure. Then, progressives engaged in fascist strategy and tactics to silence opposition to Wilson’s advance of the state over the individual. Many on the left then hailed Benito Mussolini as a hero and champion of progress in the way many on the modern left hail Hugo Chavez as the same. In the second decade of the twenty-first century, progressive activists are engaging in a similar pattern of intimidation and violence that they perversely think will help President Obama.
Progressives control the federal government, including the Presidency and the Senate. Yet liberals are still angry. See MSNBC and Twitter for details. Joe Scarborough recently wondered why the left is still angry? After all they won. The answer is simple: Progressives are LIBERAL FASCISTS. The progressive politicians try to put a smiley face on their fascism to win over useful idiots. But the progressive base will always be angry.
Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote. -Benjamin Franklin
