Annnnd…well, here we are.
The Obama years will be forever known as the Dark Ages of US history, a time of political, cultural and economic deterioration. We have yet to see if they will lead to the fall of the American republic.
In the Obama years, the lie became not only a campaign strategy or a means to enact damaging policies, but an institution of government; the Presidency itself, a lie of monstrous proportions guarded by the complicit and the willingly ignorant.
In the Obama years, the Congress finally clearly demonstrated that although we have elections, there is no longer a government representing its citizens, but an entity serving itself, operating outside of Constitutional constraints and unaccountable to the American people for the benefit of the few at the expense of the many.
In the Obama years, disseminating either disinformation or no information, a devoted media helped create the intellectual darkness and vacant servitude required to carry out the strategy of their leftist Messiah; a country without any sense of its own history and traditions, where the low-information voter would slouch towards Obama’s imaginary utopia through a combination of governmental coercion and the hedonist nihilism of a painless, amusement-sodden, and stress-free America managed by a nanny-state.
In the Obama years, we see the resurrection of the economic feudalism of the Dark Ages, a system dominated by wealthy special interests that inhibit the upward mobility of the poor and the middle class.
In the Obama years, like during the Dark Ages, we witness the rise of Islamic hegemony and violence, the infiltration of the US government by the Muslim Brotherhood and the promotion of Sharia law in our schools and judicial system.
It is clear that members of Congress have largely not adhered to their oath to support and defend the Constitution. The solution, however, is not simply trying to elect more “good” people, who eventually get coopted or crushed by the system, but to create circumstances or incentives that oblige bad people to do the right thing.
The author lays out some pretty good ideas for sparking an American Renaissance, not one of which will ever happen until after we’ve disincentivized bad behavior on the part of the bad people we’ve allowed to rule us by rendering it not just painful, but actually, literally lethal.
Meanwhile, though, back in the delusional-fairytale America where voting Republican actually matters: another UNEXPECTED!™ betrayal.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell took steps Monday to prevent a shutdown of the Department of Homeland Security by splitting off legislation attacking President Obama’s immigration actions from the funding fight.
The Kentucky Republican is seeking to fast-track legislation to eliminate two new immigration programs launched by Obama late last year, while allowing a 2012 initiative targeting younger immigrants to continue as designed.
McConnell’s move sets the stage for separate votes on a measure to fund the Homeland Security Department (DHS) past Friday and to dismantle Obama’s unilateral efforts to shield millions of illegal immigrants from deportation.
A House-passed proposal combining those two efforts had hit a wall in the Senate, where Democrats on Monday united for a fourth time this month to block the measure over their opposition to the provisions undoing Obama’s executive actions.
The DHS will suffer a partial shutdown if Congress doesn’t act before Saturday.
A very damned partial shutdown, of a redundant bureaucracy that does very little other than serve as the poster-child for overlarge, tyrannical, contra-Constitutional government while actually decreasing real security against the only true enemies we have outside the Ruling Party–enemies we’re not even allowed to notice are enemies, by Imperial decree.
But hey, go GOP, right? After all, this isn’t the hill to die fighting on; it would be counterproductive to do anything other than give Obama and the Democrat Socialists everything they want while pretending to oppose them. And they’re really helpless anyway, controlling only
one both halves of one third of the government as they do, right? Just wait till 2017, after they’ve regained the presidency–THEN the Fightin’ GOP will really hunker down and save the Constitution. Meanwhile, there is absolutely nothing the branch of government that makes the laws and controls the pursestrings can do, right?
Meanwhile, though, it’s absolutely crucially critically essential to keep giving them power they’ll never use to do something they don’t actually want to do. And if you fail to see the necessity of marching off to the polls every couple of years to waste your time doing something that will accomplish precisely nothing other than making yourself feel all smug and good about doing your laughable “civic duty,” then hey, you’re part of the problem, man!
Y’know, it occurs to me just how similar the bleating of the GOP sheep outlined above is to the eternal socialist plaint that the reason their program always fails to deliver anything but tyranny, poverty, misery, and mass murder is that it can only work once it’s made global in scope. Can’t do anything right piecemeal, they simply MUST have ALL the power before the magic can work.
In a pig’s eye. The fraudulent pustules can go peddle it someplace else; no market for it here. Slice them however you like, they’re still all baloney.
