The Saul Alinsky* radicals are now in charge of our federal government. Barack Obama, Eric Holder and the other Jacobins who do not like the America they inherited are in the process of tearing it down and remaking it into something closer to their radical world view.
Of course, all American institutions are imperfect (for nothing created by man is perfect), but that does not give any administration license to turn its back on our traditions and our Constitution. It does not give President Obama and Eric Holder license to flout and ignore our country’s laws. It does not give them permission to break the law. But the Obama administration has done all of these things. The actions of this President and his team are causing many Americans to lose faith in their government. The Obama legacy will lead to a lower standard of living, or worse, for succeeding generations of Americans.
For years the Obama administration has been sending signals south of the border that illegal aliens are welcome here. This encourages illegal immigration. In other words, by his actions, by his words, President Obama encourages illegal activity. We shouldn’t be surprised then that we now have tens of thousands of illegal aliens many of them children unaccompanied by their parents streaming over our southern borders into states like Texas and Arizona – link to story here. Now we are expected to feed, house and provide medical treatment and legal services for these people. Obama has invited these people to come here on the taxpayer’s dime. The taxpayers being you, and me. Why should Obama get to decide that every hard-working American must chip in some of their earnings to support these immigrants that have crossed into our country illegally? He and many Democrats like this arrangement because it allows them to bring groups of people to this country, at taxpayers’ expense, who are more likely, if they gain citizenship, to join the Democrat party. If citizenship is not granted to this immigrant generation, Democrats still know the likelihood is that their American-born children are more apt to identify with Democrats. It will help give them power in numbers and they obviously don’t seem to mind encouraging lawlessness to achieve this goal. There can be no other explanation why the Democrat leadership continually coddles illegal aliens despite the fact that they constantly distract the American public with their deceptive rationalizations.
Why does the Obama Administration think it is ok to release tens of thousands of incarcerated illegal alien criminals back into American society? (It has done so recently - click here for link to story). It doesn’t have to be so, but only if enough good, informed Americans come to their senses and begin to stand up against the present out of control Administration. That’s a big if.
What the so-called progressives in the Democrat party seem unwilling to acknowledge is that free people, governed by the rule of law is a rare thing in the history of mankind and that it is a great thing that should be revered, treasured and protected. Of course, one such rare example is our very own constitutional republic, which, with the ascendance of Barack Obama has come under vigorous attack from the Left. This is tragic because the American legacy of rule of law, economic freedom and consent of the governed has afforded previous generations so many inestimable blessings yet is now being replaced with the rule of executive and bureaucratic whim, economic servitude, the redistribution of wealth, and a diminution of the representative branch of government. Under Obama, momentum has been in favor of executive orders, bureaucratic bullying and court decisions by unelected judges that are contrary to the perpetuation of justice and liberty for all. Under Obama, the American ideals of liberty and individual rights are subservient to the idea that a benevolent central government must confer new rights on people based on their association with certain racial, ethnic or social groups who claim victimhood status. The redistribution of wealth, the reordering of the health care system, the emasculation of our national defenses and the pillaging of our national treasury is justified by so-called “progressives” using catchy but nebulous language like “social justice” and “sustainability.”
Here’s a link to an opinion piece by Michael Goodwin in the New York Post that is worth our attention. The most important point Mr. Goodwin makes regarding all of the destructive chaos caused by the Obama administration is that the country will continue to disintegrate because Democrats in media, in Congress, in small town America are not willing to challenge this President. Until most Democrats really begin to realize what a monster they have created the country will continue disintegrate into something very regrettable.
*Saul Alinsky’s book, Rules for Radicals, is a favorite of people on the Left like Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. Hillary wrote her college senior thesis on Alinsky and no doubt community organizer Barack Obama followed in the footsteps of Alinsky who is the acknowledged Father of Leftist Community Organizing. It’s notable that Alinsky paid tribute in his bible for radicals to Lucifer, better known as Satan or the Devil.
“Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very
first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history (and who is to
know where mythology leaves off and history begins — or which is which),
the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and
did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom — Lucifer.”
