Infomercials hit you with the shocking headline, “Can America survive?” Some videos begin with dramatic music and ask the same question. While the advertisers want to sell products, the question is legitimate.
Can America survive?
America is certainly at a crossroads. We have an administration that is engaging in economic policies that are beyond reckless. When someone drives a car at 100 miles an hour towards a cliff, you are left with few other options except to conclude they have a death wish. The Obama regime and the Party of Treason are pushing policies that have a very definite outcome: National bankruptcy.
Two things that have made America strong are the middle class and the possibility of upward mobility. The great majority of Americans have always fallen into the middle class. For years, the left has made war on the middle class. The housing bubble, which we can thank Barney Frank and Chris Dodd for, has for the first time since the last great depression destroyed the American dream of home ownership. Now, for many Americans, especially a majority in the twenty something generation, homeownership is at best a distant dream.
The American dream of owning a business is becoming an impossibility too. With a tax code that even the IRS cannot understand and expensive mandates from the government, many businesses are not able to make a profit and stay in business.
The American tax code can only be described as a war on the productive. 47% of Americans not only do not pay any taxes but many of them receive tax refunds on taxes they did not pay. What happens when only 47% of Americans are the productive and are the ones paying taxes and 53% are receiving money and benefits back from the government on taxes they did not pay?
The government’s immigration policy for the last thirty years has been nothing more than a war against the middle class. Thirty years ago, American workers built houses. Today, vast numbers of illegal aliens work on America’s McMansions. Thirty years ago, workers who built houses could earn a wage that would get them at least into the lower middle class. Today, illegal aliens who are paid far less than Americans, hold most of those jobs. Go to a fast food restaurant and see what you find. Thirty years ago, high school kids and even college students would work there and make a living while in school. Today, if you go to your average McDonald’s, if you do not speak Spanish, the chances of your order being right are slim.
One hundred years ago, immigrants came to this country because they wanted to be Americans. Immigrants came and assimilated into America. Immigrants who came from non-English speaking countries, such as Italy and Greece would refuse to teach their children the language of the country they came from and make them speak English so they would be Americans.
In most of the rest of the developed world, if you want to immigrate to a country, you must either have a lot of money or a skill that is in short supply. In other words, the country asks every immigrant what they can do for their new country. Not America.
This year, there will be another “diversity lottery.” The diversity lottery was another bright idea of Ted Kennedy who wanted to figure out as many ways to damage his country as possible during his political career. Under the diversity lottery, people are given visas to come to America based only on “diversity.” Instead of waiting in line like others who want to come to America, the winners of the diversity lottery are bumped to the front of the line. This year, there are almost ten thousand winners of the “diversity lottery” who come from countries that either support terrorism or are hostile to American.
Does anyone thing this is a bright idea?
2012 really is the ultimate battle for the soul of America. In 2012, either we defeat the Party of Treason and put a conservative in the White House who is committed to ripping socialism out of our government root and branch or we will see the end of America.
The difference between America and those third world banana republics is our large middle class. We must do everything in our power to protect and grow the middle class.
We the people need to insist, after the 2012 elections that the progressive income tax be dismantled. The 16th Amendment must be repealed and some variation of the Fair Tax put in its place. Government must be shrunk. So much of government spending now is simply politicians seeking reelection by bribing Americans with their own money. We must change immigration. We must first end illegal immigration and send illegal aliens back to their countries so we can put Americans back to work. Then we need to completely rework the immigration system. The first criteria for immigration into this country is that the person who immigrates here wants to be an American and can offer this country something.
If we lose in 2012, the consequences are dire. If the Party of Treason is able to steal the 2012 elections through fraud, we will see the end of America. It will not happen overnight, but it will happen.
The American middle class will mostly disappear and we will end our lives telling our children and grand children what it was like to grow up in America, when America was the land of the free and the land of opportunity.
This is what we face in 2012 and to quote the famous words from Apollo 13, “failure is not an option.”
As a Soros puppet Obama's plan to destroy America from within and replace it with a Marxist government controlled state has been the strategy from the beginning. Each day he gets closer to realizing this goal. The GOP is either co-opeted or too timid to resist. The consequences of an Obama 2012 theft of the oval office are beyond dire.
This is true Debrajoe. I would like to believe there are some serious Constitutionalists in our Congress that meet regularly to discuss strategy. Michele Bachmann apparently meets with other like minded Americans. I would love to know how far they are willing to go in declaring this current administration as an enemy of all that is American. And, when they plan on doing so....
we have more than a political challenge, we have a spiritual challenge. We need our moral compass back .
Proverbs 14: 34 Righteousness exalts a nation,
But sin is a reproach to any people.
Excellent post, Judson. Truer words were never written.
If we are to defeat the "Party of Treason", we must get behind whichever candidate wins the Republican nomination, even if it does not turn out to be your favorite. The alternative of losing to Odumbo with his rigged voting machines, dead people voting and illegal immigrants voting is unthinkable!
