Our choice
By Michael Oberndorf
December 21, 2012

I always thought most conservatives were intelligent. The past four years, and especially the past two months, have disabused me of that notion. Those still able to think have been treated to the sight and sound of the rest of America doing an outstanding imitation of lemmings, rushing to see who can be first to dive headlong over the cliff — fiscal, political, moral, intellectual. We have laid out in terms that even those educated in the past 30 years should be able to understand, that Barack Hussein Obama and all the people he consorts with are radical Marxists and neo-fascists whose aim is to destroy America as a free, constitutional, capitalist republic, and replace it with some sort of totalitarian collectivist state. Even with the massive cover-ups and obfuscation by the Fifth Column media, the government's actions should have, by now, made this clear. But apparently not.

Throughout the ridiculous dog-and-pony shows over the past four years, that we are supposed to believe are high-level debates and negotiations aimed at improving the economic health and strength of America, B. Hussein Obama has made a point of putting himself forth as the Champion of the Middle Class. This is perhaps the biggest of all the thousands of lies this fraud has told the American public. Everything he has done has increased the financial burden placed on the backs of working Americans, with the ultimate aim of crushing them beneath it. And the inability of Americans to grasp this truth is the result of the dumbing down, by the Democrat Left, of what is "taught" in government schools.

Students are no longer taught the facts about Marxism or capitalism, so they don't understand that capitalism can only exist where there is a viable middle class. This was the hated "bourgeoisie" of Marx. All of his efforts were directed at destroying them and creating a chimera he called the "dictatorship of the proletariat," an enlightened working class that would march triumphantly into a utopian future. However, what emerged every time his ideas were applied, was the creation of a permanent underclass, dependent on a dictatorial elite for everything from where they would live, to how much and what kind of education they would get, to at what and where they would work, and even how many children they would be allowed to have.

Under Obama, we have seen this underclass develop to the point that half the people in America are in it, out of choice, or forced there by economic hardship created by government policies. Half of all Americans are getting some form of "benefit" from the government, that without which they presumably would suffer some form of ugly privation. It is also true that only half of Americans pay the taxes that go to support the other half. B. Hussein constantly harps on "fairness," but what is fair about giving half of what you have worked hard to earn to people who don't work at all? And this, of course, begs the question of where the money will come from when the middle class is finally eliminated, as the Marxist's grand plan requires?

It should have been clear from the outset, simply because Obama bragged about it in his two "autobiographies," that he is a radical Marxist, a racist, and if not an active Muslim, then a strong sympathizer and apologist. The policies he is pursuing, with the daily assistance and support of the mind-bogglingly inept Republican Establishment, will eventually bring the economy crashing down on top of the middle class, burying us under taxes and debt such as the world has never seen in its five thousand or so years of written history. It has become frighteningly obvious that no one is going to stand up to him and his lawless co-conspirators, and that they will have free, unimpeded rein to grab and hold on to power by whatever means they choose. The massive and unopposed fraud in the 2012 elections should have made this clear to even the most die-hard of the Reach-Across-the-Aisle crowd.

It only remains for them to disarm the public — to void the Second Amendment, much as they have voided the First, Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, and Tenth. The fundamental premise of the Second Amendment was that an armed citizenry would be a major restraint on government attempting to extend its power and authority beyond that simply and succinctly set forth in the Constitution. While hunting was a positive side benefit of gun possession, it was the God-given right to defend oneself, and one's family and possessions from tyranny and government imposed despotism that the Second Amendment was written to protect and preserve. Once disarmed, we will be like chickens locked in a henhouse with a horde of weasels.

Our government can exist only with the consent of the governed. It's up to us.
