When Will You Learn?

Posted by cann0nba11 on May 30, 2009

Calling all moderate Americans. WAKE UP! I can’t save or even influence the far lefties that have no clue about reality, but I can try to those of you in the middle ground.

Look back over the “failed eight years” that the left and Obama loved to whine about. Make a list of the accusations pointed at Bush and Cheney. What was he accused of? EVEN IF, for the sake of argument, you take the truther side and agree with their crazy assertions, what Obama is doing is exponentially worse, more restrictive, more invasive and more dangerous than ANYTHING that the Bush administration was accused of.

The Obama Administration has now expressed the need to restrict free speech, not only of lobbyists and insiders, but of “anyone else exerting influence on the process. We concluded this was necessary under the unique circumstances of the stimulus program.” Who wrote that quote? Norman Eisen, who works for Barack Obama as Special Counsel to the President on Ethics and Government Reform. Ed Morrissey had this to say:

Remember when the Left took to the streets to declare dissent “patriotic” during wartime?  I didn’t have a problem with dissent then, but apparently the Left has a curious definition of “patriotism”.  Now, suddenly, the federal government can silence their critics at will, not to protect critical national-security programs or keep from undermining a war effort, but to protect a Democratic president intent on seizing control of private industry across a wide swath of the nation.  Suddenly, that kind of dissent threatens America.

Seriously speaking, when will the media and moderates that voted for Obama wake up and realize that this man is truly dangerous for America? Once upon a time liberals stood up for free speech. Remember the 1960s? What the hell has happened to the Left?Let me leave you chewing on this:

“The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of “liberalism,” they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Norman Thomas, U.S. Socialist Party presidential candidate 1940, 1944 and 1948

    RE:Norman Thomas quote:
    I know how it happened and I’ve been watching it unfold for decades. So when America “suddenly” votes in a socialist-minority it came as no surprise to me. What did surprise me are the number of absolute idiots out there who vote with emotion and not their heads.

    The sad thing is, I am beginning to wonder if anyone cares. I knew all these things would happen, but I am SHOCKED how quickly it has been ushered in. If Bush were to have proposed some of these same things the left would have came unglued. The worst thing that happened was that the Republicans didn’t do what it needed to when it had control of both houses and the Presidency. That is the difference. The Republicans always try and play nice and the Dems try and shove legislation down the throat of the Republicans when they are in power. To me, both parties suck. However, the Republicans are the lesser of two evils. Not by much, but by enough. What I see now scares me to death and I am very worried for my children and the generations after. They are never going to know the America that we grew up in.

    I remember 9/11 and you and I watching as the second tower came down. I remember the rest of that day, it was like nothing I had ever experienced nor do I want to experience it again. But the one thing that I do remember is seeing Congress (both houses, both parties) come out and unite and sing ‘God Bless America’. I literally wept. I thought that finally our government would come together to root out the evil. I remember the next day how you and your wife and my wife made flag and ribbon pins and EVERYONE was wearing one. No one spoke of liberal or conservative, Republican or Democrat. We just knew that someone had killed THOUSANDS of innocent people. People of several nationalities. People who were Republicans and Democrats. PEOPLE. PEOPLE. Now it seems as though that memory has dimmed. Not for me. I used to drive by the WTC site on my way to work and I would become emotional and upset and PISSED off every day. This country has been targeted and we will be struck again if we don’t unite and come together to get the enemy. No more talk of “torture” or waterboarding. No more showing the photos of what was done to these thugs. If anything they should show the planes slamming into the WTC and the people that chose to dive from 70 stories and more out their windows so they wouldn’t die by burning to death. I say if they want to publish the “torture” photos, they should publish them alongside pictures of the WTC and what happened there that day. With the heading ‘Cause and Affect’.

    I am sad. This country is not the one I was promised. Nor is it the one that I want to bring up to amazing little boys in. This country used to stand for something. Now, it seems all we care about is who wins some reality show or what brackets we have for the NCAA tournament. Are you kidding me? I couldn’t believe that there was coverage of Obama and his brackets. Give me a break. We are in the middle of an economic meltdown and he is concerned about his brackets and bowling. Great. Hello, Mr. Outoftouch!

    I just don’t like the way this country is going and not just because Obama is President. This started a while back. I don’t like a lot of things Bush did and what Obama is doing scares the H-E-DOUBLE-L out of me. It is time for us to take our country back. Get back to what made us great. Screw the UAW for ruining not 1 but 2 of the biggest companies in the U.S. Everyone just STOP. This is not the game of Monopoly. We can’t just wipe the board and start over. This is real and we are losing the best society that has ever existed. Do we really want to do this to our children and grand children? Is this what we want to leave them? Not me.
