Waning Optimism

What we did last November 2 is only a beginning. To really reverse the wrong course the Left had led this country, for decades, will take much hard work and time of which we have little before the devolution becomes irreversible.
We must stay informed, despite the MSM, and watch the political class like a hawk. Remember Thomas Jefferson’s prescient warning in his letter to Edward Carrington, 1787:
“If once they [the people] become inattentive to the public affairs, you and I, and Congress, and Assemblies, Judges, and Governors, shall all become wolves.”

Waning Optimism
By Tom in NC
I used to be pretty much an optimist who could usually see the silver lining in any situation, especially after discussing it with my wife. This government, however, is stripping away my optimism and our freedom as fast as professional car thieves can strip a car. 
I have little hope that our country will recover from this all-out socialist assault and as long as there are liberals in the media, the ACLU, the NEA, CAIR, the enviromental wack jobs and the liberal media, things won’t be getting any better. We are at the mercy of an out-of-control government that cares little, if any, about the average hardworking taxpaying citizen of this country. Obama and the Democrats are more than willing to:

  • Give blanket amnesty to illegals.
  • Keep the unemployment rate high while consistently extending unemployment benefits, putting even more hardships on an already overburdened taxpayer.
  • Watch gas prices rise.
  • Destroy our healthcare system.
  • Give absolute and unyielding power to the unions.
  • Sink the dollar.
  • Grope us at airports under the guise of protecting us.
  • Bow before our enemies.
  • Indoctrinate our kids in socialist ideology at every level of education.
  • Usurp the authority of parents in the raising of our children.
  • Bend over backwards to accomodate Muslims and anything associated with Islam while at the same time trashing Christians and Christianity.
  • Astronomically raise our national debt and deficits.
  • Lie about transparency in government, lie about spending, lie about taxes and conduct the most dishonest scandal ridden administration in the history of our government.

Until we take a stand, not just against these politicians but against all the special interest groups that support them, things will never get any better. We have already seen what is happening in Europe and the citizens there are pretty much powerless because their governments have stripped them of their guns and now, socialism and Sharia rule with an iron fist.
I don’t know what it is going to take before the American people say enough is enough. Do we not see what is happening? Do we not care that our government is ruining our and our children and grandchildren’s future for decades to come? Are we simply not willing to take own destinies in our hands and fight back?
This president and this government care nothing for our opinions, care not when millions of us gather in Washington, D.C. to protest their policies, and care not when we vote overwhelmingly against those policies. We now have control of the House but the liberals still control the Senate and the White House.
I fear that the Republicans are sometimes too willing to compromise instead of fight, and as we all know, we can’t take two more years of liberal policies. Our economy and our infrastructure will essentially collapse under the weight of socialism. It is only a matter of time before our country becomes a police state; it has already started in our airports with invasive searches and in our healthcare with bureaucrats making life and death decisions for us. Soon the FCC will control the Internet in direct violation of the first amendment to the Constitution.
But they won’t stop there, you can bet on that. Liberals won’t stop until our freedoms are history unless WE stop them. It’s time to take the bull by the balls and show these pompous bastards who’s the boss in this country. It’s WE THE PEOPLE, not you the government, who run this country. WE pay your bloated salaries, WE produce the goods and services that keep this country running, WE are the entrepreneurs who take the risks and do the hiring in the private sector.
Do you really want to take us on? We can make you and we can also break you. You might want to keep that in mind the next time you try to ram some more of your BS legislation down our throats. Deep down inside, we Americans still have the pioneering, patritiotic fighting spirit of our forefathers. The last thing you bureaucrats will want to do is bring it to the surface!

  1. Tom,
    That is excellent, and mirrors my thoughts exactly.
    I, too, try really hard to remain optimistic, but that is becoming more difficult as each day passes. Part of me now believes that our last chance to save this republic as it was founded via the ballot box came and went in November of 2008.
    I hope I am wrong, but the damage is just coming too fast.
    It is this congress that is going to have to stop Obama cold, as by the time the next congress is seated two years hence, it will be too late – no matter what the makeup of that congress might be.
    I linked back to this on my blog:
