The trickle down effect of leftist snobbery and arrogance begins with the leftist elite (politburo types) and finds it way to the bottom of the stack (useful idiots) until it has contaminated and corrupted a once proud nation. This is why I coined the term "societal acid" to describe the effect of leftist policy.
Once, we understood the leftist ideology in America and reviled it as it should have been. Today however, we celebrate the droppings of Marxist ideology as programs that will now save mankind from himself. Marxism and Marxism lite, or socialism if you prefer, are offered by mind numbed politicians as feel good panaceas that will cure whatever ills the dread evil of capitalism has wrought. Of course the left never says it quite like that.
Instead, they couch their tired creed in politically neutral terms that are designed to bypass the lie detectors of the public in order to administer a lethal dose of Marxism to the current political system in an effort to destroy the native system. Once the public has been put under by the leftist soporific they then proceed to legislate their poisonous agenda in the hopes that the sheep will not awaken until they have completed their dastardly deeds.
That is why they rely so heavily on fronts like ACORN and Media Matters. It is front organizations like these that provide them cover from inspection. When discovered, they may run like cockroaches when you turn on the lights, but like cockroaches they come out again when you are not looking. In essence, progressivism is the American version of Fabian Socialism and it is deeply embedded in our culture, our schools and institutions of higher learning. Through these fronts they can assault and pervert the ideas of traditional American values and they do this by indoctrinating our children (evidenced by the unofficial Obama youth and school children singing hymns to "dear leader" at public schools), blatantly lying to the American people, declaring emergency after emergency to force through unpopular legislation (Rahm Emmanuel said as White House Chief of Staff on a news show, "Never let an emergency go to waste" meaning that they should be used for political advantage by the left), and by making deals behind closed doors in order to keep the public ignorant of legislation (remember when Nancy Pelosi said that the healthcare bill had to pass before you could know what was in it?).
You see, fronts help the left to hide their agenda from certain destruction if the sheep ever became aware of what was really going on and who was really calling the shots. In essence, President Obama is a puppet of Marxism. The President was not joking when he blatantly said that he does not make a decision until he first consults with the trade unions. Why do you think that the American Communist Party did back flips when he won the election? His mother was a communist. His father was a communist. He sought out communists and was advised by them all of his life. His political career was launched in the home of communists. Communists walk in the highest halls of power in the nation's capitol as his appointees. So I am pretty sure that President Obama is a communist no matter what the spin doctors in the news media and on the left say. Saying that President Obama is not a communist is like saying that he didn't hear one word of Reverend Wright's black liberation theology for twenty years. Right, and he had no idea that Bill Ayers and his wife Bernadine Dorn were both unrepentant terrorists who were also Marxists. Yeah, and I believe in the Easter Bunny as well.
The nationalizing of the commercial banks and industry is the first step toward a Marxist nation. The second step in nationalizing healthcare. The final step is forcing the American public into poverty through taxation by the continued creation of the welfare state. What do you think, Cap and Tax anyone? Didn't the President admit that he would economically break power generation companies? Didn't his former advisor, Van Jones, say that we needed to destroy the current system in order to bring forth a new system that would spread the wealth? Forgive me, but those don't seem like ideas that are good for a capitalist system.
With a government like this is it any wonder that the economy is circling the drain? Business has no idea what kooky idea or plan the Marxists in government are going to come up with so they sit on their cash reserves before they are lost by a President who has never run a lemonade stand. Further, business has finally concluded that the Democrats in general and the President in particular are hostile to free trade. Imagine that, I wonder what was their first clue?
If the current economic situation in the U.S. were not so bad, there is the incredibly stupid foreign policy the idiots in the White House have cooked up. Perhaps Andy Stern could be brought in for Marxist ideas on how to stop the blossoming nuclear program in Iran and the start of one in Venezuela or perhaps we could give Richard Trumka of the AFL-CIO a go as he is a Marxist as well. Why do you think that Stern and Trumka and all of the other labor leaders are so friendly to overseas workers? Why do they care about them more than they care about workers here on American soil? Because the dream of communism marching in jackboots across the globe is still alive and well in labor unions, but shhhh...don't tell anyone because the Democrats are in the hip pocket of labor and we wouldn't want them to be embarrassed.
The people of America have awakened, some of them at least and we realize our danger. The foes of the light and of truth can never be destroyed because of the dualistic nature of man. Therefore we should not be surprised to find our old enemies in new masks and clothing. The core principles are the same, but the face has changed. Marxists could not defeat us when they were Soviets so they pulled down the red flag and they called themselves progressives and leftists, but they are still communists of one degree or another. Our experience with Islam has been much the same.
We defeated the Nazis and now their ideology of hatred and cruelty is enshrined in the foul religion of Muhammad and they wish to build a mosque in New York where they murdered thousands in order to build a bridge. Well thank you, but I don't need a bridge to death and Islam does not need another victory mosque to celebrate their murderous intent. Same enemies, different faces.
One day perhaps we will win that final battle, but it is not this day. Today we must fight to preserve that which makes us unique in the world: freedom. It is that freedom that is the heart and soul of American exceptionalism and it is what was responsible for building the Shining City upon the hill that acts as a beacon of hope for the rest of the world.
November is coming. Show Congress how you feel about their tyranny. Show the President that he does not rule us, but represents us. We need no King and we need no aristocracy. What we need are representatives that are true to our American values and the ideology of our founding fathers. It is the people of the United States that are sovereign and it is only the loan of that sovereignty that grants the Federal government its power. When the servant believes that he is the master then it is time to get a new servant.
Live free or die.
