Our illustrious President Obama is always talking about “investing in America”. Of course, that “investment” is slanted by his left-leaning liberal definition of the word. When one thinks of “investment” and combines it with Obama’s concept of “fundamental transformation”, we begin to get a mental picture which tells us that the termites have been eating away on our home for a long time now and that such “investments” have nothing to do with the future of this nation as we have known it since inception.
We have to look at certain key words to gain this understanding. The most obvious one is “fundamental” which generally means “basic” or “first step” things. For example, if we are to change the educational mindset of the American population, then we must start at the most fundamental level…kindergarten or first grade in creating that mindset. There are other examples which reinforce this “fundamental” aspect but I think you probably get the picture.
From the liberal left or the hard leaning socialist viewpoint, the values and morals of this nation must be transformed if the country is to be successfully moved to a complete different orientation. In order to accomplish that goal, children must be taught a different perspective on the history of this nation. They must be taught that much of what was taught before was rooted in false patriotism and that the real truth about America is one grown from a selfish capitalistic movement in which select people became wealthy at the expense of others. That is the premise. No one can gain unless someone else loses, the backbone of socialist thinking in a few words.
If we begin teaching children this concept at an early age and it continues through their post education experience, they basically are brainwashed into the liberal mindset. They have been fundamentally transformed to believe that the world should look at everything with tolerance and open-minded understanding. They have been taught to believe that if it were not for the smudged history of the USA, the world could be a place rooted in love and understanding and governed by a single world-wide apparatus. Accountability has no meaningful purpose as it requires individuals to take responsibility for their own actions which is counter to the tolerant mindset they have been taught.
Conservatives fight for control of all elements of our government and occasionally they gain that foothold. Sadly, they do very little with that level of control when they attain it except to possibly continue the status quo. There is never any thought given to moving education back to local control in the community for that would mean giving up some power in the federal government and no politician wants to give up power over the people thus the trend in education stands with its liberal intent uninterrupted over time.
Nikita Khrushchev, the premier of the Soviet Union in the late 50’s and 60’s decade, once declared that Communism would overtake the USA without firing a single shot. In their naïve mindset of the time, most Americans could not grasp such a concept and laughed it off without a second thought. Khrushchev, on the other hand, was quite serious and was referring to the “invests” made by the left in education, religion, morals, ethics, and many, many other targeted avenues which would eventually erode the fabric of what was America from its inception. He knew that America could not be dismantled without first causing its population to question its values, morals, and intent over time. Once that process was begun, then the fabric would slowly lose strength over time and eventually rip apart. One thing we must admire about the leftist mentality…they are very patient in awaiting the return on their investment.
Back in the post WWII Era, Americans were relatively naïve. They had just seen their country prevail in an all-out world war. This was good overcoming evil in their minds and they were convinced, just like in the movies… good always prevails in the end. They felt blessed to live in such a magical land where they did not have to care or worry for those in charge would see to it that nothing evil ever came to past in this great land. In fact, the population was so naïve, the people failed to see that first big crack in the foundation of the country which erupted in the 1960’s with the divisions created over the Vietnam Conflict. Young minds were ripe to be captured and twisted against their own government. Outsiders played on the college-level youth who felt they had gained a superior intelligence over their parents by raising the educational bar. The youth of America was ripe for manipulation and the leftist capitalized on that moment and “invested” in it. Today, we see many of those individuals in high public office still operating with their “anti-America” mindset and using the tools of their elected office to do so. Down on the street, the naïve mindset has been replaced by apathy and a form of intelligent ignorance.
America is finally maturing on the investments which the leftists have made within the last five decades. In some small corners of the population, an awareness is rising which causes one to stop and think that “maybe Senator Joe McCarthy was on to something when he called out the Communists infesting our government in the early 1950’s." Something Americans could not conceive at the time. Maybe Khrushchev was making sense when he made his remark about how America would fall. These people look around and they see more examples of that same direction starting with the current president in his high office. It makes the hair stand up on their neck to realize that good apparently does not triumph over evil every time in the real world…especially when the people affected the most are distracted and apathetic.
Today, we face an immigration dilemma. We face this problem not because our policies and plans are not working but more so because those who hold high office have elected not to enforce our laws and secure our borders which is directly in violation of their oath of office. Those politicians are working hard to convince America that it is time to change our plan, give those who are here illegally some amnesty, and eventually, they will be crying for these people to vote as part of that process. From a political perspective, this would be looked upon as “dilution”…the process of reducing the concentration until it has reached an acceptable level”. When something is diluted, it loses concentration and the strength of that which makes it up in large part. The more we dilute the current population, the more apathetic the voter base becomes especially in light of the fact that most of those here illegally could care less about becoming citizens as long as they do not have to go to jail or be deported. No, it is the politician who has a “dream” for them and that dream is one more method to be used in dismantling America.
The problem we have today is all but out of control. Our president is continually confronting the Constitution and raising the ante each time that he does so. Obama has almost single-handedly created a mass expansion of the welfare state in this country while also driving broad wedges of division between races and cultures on the basis of wealth and wealth distribution. Obama is the epitome of the concept, “if one gets ahead in life, it must come at the expense of another”…a leftist, socialist mantra designed to create division and chaos. Basically, our deterioration in America today is no longer driven by outsiders…we are now doing it to ourselves as those false premises introduced more than five decades ago into our culture have taken root and are now yielding crops.
Can we overcome such a momentum toward destruction? From my perspective, if we can, it will approach being a true miracle of mankind. Certainly there are still enough conservative minds populating our landscape but their efforts are possibly too little and too late. Gaining control is not enough if the direction does not change with that shift in power. If our children and grandchildren are to ever see and experience those basic tenets outlined in the Bill of Rights to the Constitution, then the conservative side of this house is going to have to stand tall and defend those freedoms, liberties, and pursuits of happiness. Otherwise, they will diminish into nothing; the result of evil’s domination over an apathetic domain.
