“In the end, isn’t liberal progressivism simply a cult of thieving losers looking to even the score with those who have surpassed them?” — The American Thinker
“Where have all the American men gone? That is an irrelevant question as those who still have a backbone will be forced to stand against all threats, both foreign and domestic while the rest of the so-called men hide under the bed.” — Dave Hodges
“Toto, I’ve a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore.” — Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz
For anyone born before, oh, say, 1975, America has turned into a strange and almost unrecognizable place. What was once the celebrated “Home of the Brave” and “Land of the Free” has become the Land of the Lost, a haven for radical quacks, perverts, dopers, third world trespassers, and racists of color, all nurtured by an establishment that no longer knows right from wrong. Or even much cares.
These days, freedom means anything goes, as long as it’s approved by the Politically Correct. Well, maybe not everything goes yet; homicide is still frowned upon — unless the victim is still in the womb, one of Barack Obama’s drone targets, or a conservative Republican. This isn’t a civilization anymore; it’s a freak show presided over by the Wizard of Ooze and his Sheriff of Rottingham, Eric Holder.
But weirdness has always been as American as apple pie — or fruit cake, at least. Your lifestyle, deviant as it may be, is no one’s business but yours. Different strokes for different folks. And, unless you’re a murderer, a child molester, or another kind of felon, it’s protected by the first 10 amendments to the Constitution.
But tolerance is one thing. Federally mandated acceptance, forced upon us under penalty of law, is something else entirely. That’s not freedom; it’s coercion. And it’s what Barack Obama meant when he vowed to fundamentally transform America. Obama’s concept of freedom is conditional. It doesn’t apply, for example, to gun owners or veterans or Catholics or capitalists or conservatives. Or for that matter, to anyone else who fails to embrace the Leftist agenda. Fall in line, or be crushed by “your” government.
Back in the ’60s, the Democrats sent me to Vietnam. (actually, I volunteered, but you get the point). Now, all these years later, the Democrats have become the very Communists they once sent me off to fight. And here’s the thing: If we lose this war, there’ll be no home left to come back to.
