In late 1941, WW II had been raging for over two years. Britain was holding out alone in Europe and Hitler’s Panzers were within sight of Moscow. With the horrors of WW I fresh, the United States wanted no more foreign entanglements.
FDR knew the US would have to enter the war on the side of the Allies. Allowing the Axis Powers to absorb huge populations and untold natural resources would eventually create powers too big to defeat. Every farm, oil well, rubber tree, factory, and military age man absorbed by the Axis meant another increment of strength to our enemies. What – if anything – could awaken the American people to the growing and imminent threat to our very existence as a free republic?
Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto stepped up with a perverse and tragic gift on December 7th. The horrific news of the attack on Pearl Harbor galvanized the American people as nothing else could. The intense anger following that sneak attack combined with the sober realization that half the world’s modern military strength was arrayed against us stoked the determination to destroy our enemies. The acute realization that our nation was in mortal danger of becoming an Axis conquest awoke the instinct of self preservation. From that moment on, America was at war to win.
The Obama Administration is our generation’s domestic Pearl Harbor. We must take advantage of it to preserve our country for future generations. Barack Obama has given us a priceless gift if we are strong, smart, and organized enough to use it to our advantage. It is an attack on our freedom, liberties, way of life, and our children’s future, from within. It is an assault on America’s greatness, the destruction of her exceptionalism, and the squandering of her prosperity. It is up to us and like minded people throughout the land to seize on this gift and turn it to our advantage.
In my adult lifetime, America’s population has increased about 40%. In that same time, the proportion of people dependent on, or working for government has increased by over 270%. A whopping 30% of all Americans are currently either working for government or receiving some sort of assistance, transfer payment, or entitlement.
The currently employed labor force is about 45% of our total population. Almost half of them pay no taxes whatsoever, so that further dilutes the number supporting the 30% to around 22.5%. If you pay taxes, you are not only supporting yourself, but also more than one person on government programs or employment. The imbalance of these numbers gets worse by the year. It is the slow bleeding of our fiscal stability on the path to inevitable to economic suicide.
Obama and his cadre of hacks, elitists, sycophants, czars, camp followers, and assorted & sundry buffoons are ratcheting up every handout, entitlement, and subsidy they can to increase dependency on government. These burgeoning government giveaways are no different than the farms, oil wells, factories, mills, and young men that were being swept into the maw of the Axis war machine. Each new handout buys strength for the Obama welfare state juggernaut. Senator Jim DeMint stated that “A dependent voter is a dependable vote.” Obama is buying as many as he can with money as yet unearned by those yet unborn.
This is the path so disastrously trod before us by Greece, and being quickly followed by Italy, Spain, Portugal, Ireland, and Hungary. Our future is unfolding before us in Europe this very minute. The only preventative measure that will save us from a similar fate is to emasculate the Obama Administration in November with our votes. While we are at it, let’s broom out a few dozen Bush-era RINOs who don’t concern themselves with our future any more than the current regime.
Here is deficit spending compared to a cross country road trip. It will give some perspective:
Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their country!
Just for clarification; that line did not come from the mouth of some famous leader back in history. It originated as a typing class drill by a teacher named Charles E. Weller in about 1867.
