Good Lord above, where does one start? How many people involved with government, or even private politics, currently have any self-esteem? I mean, how can you get down on your knees in front of anyone with a chance at power, just so you can try and make points with them. Pick a news network and I'll show you a LOT of people that have to wipe their chins every time Barry Obama says anything, no matter how inane the statement might be.
How many people will follow a "cult of personality" just because their (the politician, preacher, pope, etc., etc.) personality happens to be stronger than theirs(citizen). My God in Heaven! As a society we've become nothing but a bunch of lemmings. We make no decisions for ourselves. Instead we run to the first person that says, "Don't worry! I and my administration will provide "A" "B" "C" for you and you won't have to bother with it. (insert your socialist policy of choice for the letters). What was it that started the watering down of the American blood? What was it that weakened our spines and took self reliance away from us? Was it the "New Deal"? I honestly want to know. Have we merely become subject to a repeat of the history of all the rest of the great societies(Rome, Greece, Egypt)? Have we run the course that is defined by our human failings and are unable to go beyond without first having our freedoms and rights taken from us?
Complicit in this fall are all the politicians, talking heads, reporters, "journalists", and celebrities that parade themselves in front of us demanding that ALL ideas are equal. That ALL points of view (except those of the founders) are valid. These "useful idiots", as Lenin called them, yell and scream that social and fiscal conservatives are racists and hate mongers. That we would kill the old and deprive the young of food. I find it hard to credit that they even believe the tripe that they spew. All of this is for the ability to make themselves feel morally superior. Or in a vast number of cases they just want to increase their power base by feeding off of the ready number of people that, through previous attempts to push socialist ideas, feel like someone should feel sorry for them as "victims". These last are not hard to find in any city, state, or federal governmental body. Look for those that see their power as a right. Look for those that are entrenched in their position of authority. These people will say whatever they must, destroy anyone they must, to further their power and position.
Our Federal Congress is full to bursting with the refuse of our political gene pool. Nothing will change (God knows I hate that word now) until ALL of them are removed, term limits are instituted and we are able to burn them out and start over.
Hollywood and the mainstream media have become a blight on our nation's image. I find it horrible that these people are kept on the screen by our money. Unfortunately no one since the Dixie Chicks has been told to "just shut up and sing!!!" or act, or report. Stop trying to be the news and just report it. Make movies but keep your insane, disconnected, mentally atrophied, Marxist ideas to yourself.
