Frightened of this White House and Obama-friendly search engine management, many of my regular publishers may choose not to print this column. This is following the Obama administration’s new definition of “hate speech” which is any speech in support of the good ole USA and, more importantly, at odds with the Obama administration. This is what may cause some of my regular publishers concern, that they will lose search engine support for their publication.
But so be it! Someone has to say it like it really is and if I don’t, I’m hard pressed to find anyone else in the old or new media who will.
Allow me to state for the record that one need not live long or look far to realize that bad things can happen to good people, leaving them in a real moment of need. When this happens, no people on earth will step in to help as Americans do every day. Americans are the most generous people on the planet.
My family has raised the children of others when their parents couldn’t. We have mowed grass, mended broken homes, paid electric bills and even made the occasional mortgage payment when someone else could not - not because we had to, but because we could and we wanted to.
However, this is not the situation being discussed here today. This piece takes a look at a growing segment of the U.S. population and their overall entitlement mentality which makes them think they have a right to the honest earnings and assets of others, bringing and owing nothing to society in return, and their endless demands for government tyranny.
One of the most disgusting events in American history was held in our nation’s capital last weekend and the American press has had absolutely nothing to say about it.
On October 2, 2010 - Democrats, Union Workers, and Communists Rallied Together in Washington.
For years, I have written on the subject of how the terms democrat, socialist, communist, Marxist, liberal, and progressive are all synonymous in American now. In the good ole days, they were in the closet, but today, they are on daily display from the White House to the Halls of Congress, to the Lincoln Memorial and Washington Monument.
Calling this cabal of mental and emotional misfits communists is nicer than they really deserve. The proper term is parasite, “a person who receives support, advantage, or the like, from another or others without giving any useful or proper return, as one who lives on the hospitality of others.” One need look no further than the signs carried at last weekend’s DC rally for confirmation.
Decent, honest, hard-working American taxpayers are all caught up in the daily assaults on their individual freedom and liberty, and rightfully so today. The 24/7 assault on individual freedom may be worse in America than anywhere else on earth right now and political pandering to parasites is at the root of the problem.
Now to be at least somewhat fair, most of these parasites are not really parasites by choice. They have been systematically trained to be parasites – taught that the world owes them a certain standard of living – and that Robin Hood in the form of our Federal Government is the modern American Dream. They are simply in pursuit of the happiness earned by others.
They have been trained from childhood up by their TV set, Hollywood, mass media, academia, and public education. Today, we have a growing segment of society that is of no use to itself or anyone else. It’s not entirely their fault, but that’s the way it is.
It was more than twenty years ago when I first started worrying about the future of American societyThe 'Rich' Have Another Name: 'Employers'. Try as I may to explain to this group that - – they just don’t get it.
According to this bunch of permanent malcontents, freedom’s just another word for “greedy capitalist pig.” How did this happen in my beloved country?
Even more disturbing, however, is the fact that columns like this one and What About Free-Will draw a collective yawn from even the pro-America side of the political aisle. We have lived with this cancer in our society for so long, forced to tolerate ideas that we know have no value, that even decent honest citizens are losing sight of reality.
Beaten and broken down to near total submission, most Americans turn away from the truth because the truth about what is happening in this country and what it might take to fix it is just too overwhelming for the average Bart Simpson fan or American Idol enthusiast.
When I realized that Hollywood was now making cartoons for adults and that those cartoons were widely embraced by an unimaginable number of “grown-ups” in this country, I knew that this country had quite possibly passed the point of no return.
In 1913 Was a Very Bad Year, I explain in explicit historical terms how we got here as a nation and who is mostly responsible for it. Explaining how to get out of this position is no easy task, however, since only the American people can do it, or would even want to do it, and most don’t even know how much trouble we are in.
Total national bankruptcy is where policies for parasites will end. There are numerous fallen nations throughout history to prove it, most notably Cuba of late, which is now laying off a million public sector workers in an effort to force them back into productive private sector employment, tossing them off the empty public feeding trough and out into the real world where they can begin to contribute to society for a change.
But in case that’s not close enough to home for you, the Obama administration has increased our national debt by nearly 40% in just their first two years in power. In case you think things look brighter anywhere in the future, here’s what the administration financial wizard had to tell the Rhode Island Public Expenditure Council in Providence, Rhode Island just a couple days ago:
I have discussed, projections by the CBO and others show future budget
deficits and debts rising indefinitely, and at increasing rates. To
be sure, projections are to some degree only hypothetical exercises.
Almost by definition, unsustainable trajectories of deficits and debts
will never actually transpire, because creditors would never be willing
to lend to a country in which the fiscal debt relative to the national
income is rising without limit.” - Federal Reserve Chairman Ben
In other words, our ability to borrow our way to prosperity is almost at end. As leftists demand more and more parasitic policies, Bernanke tells it like it is. But who’s listening?
recent deep recession and the subsequent slow recovery have created
severe budgetary pressures not only for many households and businesses,
but for governments as well. Indeed, in the United States, governments
at all levels are grappling not only with the near-term effects of economic
weakness, but also with the longer-run pressures that will be generated
by the need to provide health care and retirement security to an aging
population.” - Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke
Look at those pictures again, and read those signs.
The current economic condition of our nation and its people should be of utmost concern to every American. Looking at those signs, however, and realizing that there is no end to the increasing demands for more and more government must eventually shake every American into appropriate action. Austerity is never any fun, but it is sometime the only solution.
In less than a month, Americans will have the chance to end leftist domination over all branches of the federal government in the mid-term elections. That cannot be the end goal anymore, waiting another two years to do more at the ballot box, as if the ballot box is the only power the people have.
It is my belief that the people depicted in the report on last week’s DC march represent at best only 20% of American society. Eighty percent of Americans are not communists, socialists, Marxists, or progressives. But nearly half are Democrats. And today, this means that they support the same agenda whether or not they know it.
JFK-era Democrats must snap out of their generational coma. JFK would have been stoned from the stage had he tried preaching “ask not what your country can do for you” in DC on October 2, 2010. WAKE UP! The Democrat Party of JFK is long gone and the pictures linked herein depict today’s DNC base.
To make the problem worse, not every Republican is a constitutional conservative and our nation is in desperate need of constitutional conservative leadership today.
What happens after the mid-term elections is just as important as the elections themselves. Electing a few new politicians will not solve the crisis in this country. Only the American people can do that and they must accept personal responsibility for that job in order to have any reason to feel better about our future.

Forcing the politicians who end up in power after the election to move this nation in the right direction is vital to the future of freedom, liberty, and prosperity in America. The days of voting and forgetting about it until the next election cycle are gone.
The people must engage and remain engaged, forever vigilant in defense of freedom and pursuit of prosperity or the same people who bankrupted the nation will soon bankrupt every American.
