A tale of two countries: America decides

November 5, 2012

Below are two columns, a tale of two countries if you will.

If the polls are to be believed, either collection of words could be correct come the morning of November 7th, 2012. (And for you hard core political junkies wondering why there isn’t a third column reflecting the nightmare of a Florida type recount in Ohio, the answer is simple: such a nightmare is too scary to even think about, let alone write about.)

Tomorrow, the votes will be made and the tomorrow after that the course will have been set .

We will at long last know whether hyperbole and hypocrisy has now replaced reason and logic or whether the “silent majority” that spoke so loudly in 2010, succeeded in pushing back the voices of tyranny in 2012.

So here you are America.  Here are your choices.  Please, please choose wisely.

America crosses the Rubicon, Europe embraced

America crossed her Rubicon last night as she followed her incumbent President into the arms of European styled government and expanded entitlements. As Caesar so prophetically stated over two thousand years ago: “alea iacta est” – the die is cast.

Marching under the flags of “fairness”, “social justice”, “I want mine”, and “you owe me”, Obama’s minions turned their backs on the history they no longer even bother to learn and gave de Tocqueville his due.

The tipping point has occurred.

As of November 7th, 2012, there are now more Americans who wish to demand more from their country than they care to contribute to it.

Obama’s distraction and division successfully united one hyphenated voting bloc after another into a coalition of takers that ultimately proved unstoppable.  Whittled away, piece, by regulatory piece, tax after confiscatory tax, the producers at last succumbed to the inevitable.

Be it warning the blacks that the Republicans would put them back in their chains, that grandma would be kicked out of her hospital bed, that Hispanic families would be rounded up at ice-ream parlors, that Catholics were evil incarnate for not willingly wanting to provide free contraception on demand, or that all those “rich” people really did “owe” their wealth to the masses, there was not a class left un-messaged by the Obama campaign in its war on American founding principles.

As little as just ten years ago, such a campaign of envy, hate and selfishness would have been soundly trounced.

But in this perfect storm of a sagging economy, high unemployment, an education system that no longer educates, and a liberalized, dumbed down society that demands instant gratification for “me, me, me” every second of every day, sanity and reason didn’t stand a chance.

Age old American virtues of individual responsibility, entrepreneurial self-sufficiency, economic freedom and individual and religious liberty were all demonized as just that: OLD and backwards, no longer needed traits.

The rugged American individualism of the past was just that the PAST. No longer to be aspired to, no longer to be respected. Instead such behavior is now to be demonized as but greed unbridled, unearned wealth stolen from the plates of the masses.

The Constitution no longer that great document that for over two centuries that had restrained government and protected against the abuses of power, but rather a “living” document to be whipped about by the political winds of the day.

But perhaps the best synopsis of what we’ve just witnessed comes not from a snarky Jon Stewart type of today, but from the wisdom of one Benjamin Franklin of so many yesterday’s passed:

“A nation of well informed men who have been taught to know and prize the rights which God has given them cannot be enslaved. It is in the region of ignorance that tyranny begins.”

America as founded exists no more.

For with the re-election of one Barack Hussein Obama and all that that re-election entails, she is now officially a nation of ignorants.

God help the fools who so blindly followed and God speed the patriots who now “mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.”

-OR –

America rights her course, history holds.

America, as founded, has survived the biggest threat to her existence since Abraham Lincoln entered the White House under the storm clouds of civil war.

After surviving hundreds of millions of dollars of attack ads, personal insults and demagoguery on a scale unseen in the modern political era, Mr. Romney takes his place in history as yet another President assuming the reigns of power amidst a nation divided.

And while it is certainly reassuring to have dodged the bullet that is de Tocqueville’s tipping point, the danger has not passed.

The precipice upon which we stand is as precarious today as it was yesterday.

Millions upon millions of Americans are in need of jobs, millions more are facing restrictive retirements, and millions of younger Americans face a future more uncertain than at anytime in two generations.

And while those millions of Americans who helped deliver Mr. Romney his victory are now breathing a sigh of relief it will be a short and shallow sigh at best.

Yes, America as founded has survived. But the principles, freedoms and liberties that make up that foundation are under attack today just assuredly as they were yesterday.

Having Mr. Romney in the White House is most certainly better than four more years of the Obama march against the Constitution, but it is not the be all and end all.

For reasons too numerous to mention here, Democrats retain a slim majority in the Senate and Harry Reid remains free to shackle the nation with inaction like no single person ever in this nation’s history.   It is anything but insignificant, that the minion media megaphone that was cheering on Obama yesterday has not gone silent today.

It will merely shift from cheering for Obama to booing against Romney. ( And if anyone has any doubts the damage that can do, I direct you to 2008 and the consequences unleashed by bashing Bush year, after merciless year.)

Romney many have won the Presidency but the battle for the America’s soul is far from over.

The founding of this great nation was anything but easy and neither is the task Mr. Romney faces today.

If this nation as founded is to truly be saved for future generations untold millions upon millions of Americans will have to be weaned from the nipple of entitlement and shown one apprehensive step at a time that life truly is better on the path of independent thought.

Half a century of victimization and indoctrination cannot be undone overnight, but the dawn that broke this morning was brighter than it’s been in a very, very long time.

God bless the patriots who made it happen, and God bless the United States of America.

    Sadly, it appears the “gimme gimme” won. Now we have to pay even more postal worker pensions, no matter how f*cking useless the workers were. On the plus side, I can smile at them when I draw federal unemployment checks for the next four years (since they’re bound to extend benefits). We have crossed the Rubicon, and we are Europe. We now expect government to take care of us cradle to grave. De Tocqueville is spinning in his grave, screaming “I told you so!”. We have given Obama free reign to destroy us in the next four years, and given that he has no worry about re-election, he can go full throttle to making us the socialist utopia he has envisioned since day one.

    T’is a sad day for those who love their country, but a glad day for leftists. For the one time every four years, expect his (“his” being that left wing asshole) minions to actually appear here gloating. And more power to them. Once they, like everyone else, is living off of government checks, they might rethink it, but since that’s their goal, perhaps not. Perhaps our last goal to save the republic from itself has come up short. America is dead. Long Live America.

      And the “rubicon” column is now posted as the post of tomorrow. Yes, America as founded is now more, but she is not lost.
      The dwainbwains will most certainly gloat, but they shall be gloating over a hollow victory. The House is still a wall defending liberty and when the final tally is taken, the popular vote will show millions upon millions of this country still supporting America over Amerika any day.
      Yes, it just got a helluva lot harder, but then it’s still nothing compared to what the founders endured.

        I hate to say it, but I think it’s gone. I predicted a 300+ Romney win tonight, because I thought there were enough people who did not rely on the gubmint for their cheese to say “enough is enough”. I was obviously wrong. The Rubicon is not just crossed, but burned behind us. There were too many who think the black guy is cool because he’s black (and if you don’t think so, you’re racist!). There were too many who think the government paying for everything is hunky dory (although have a good time getting them to say where “government money” comes from). I think the assholes like that other blogger and his minions have won. He gets his completely unearned pension for life, they get their gubmint cheese for life, and we have to pay for it (and yes, even my unemployed ass pays taxes, unlike d*ckcheese and his pension). We are now Rome, circa 476. We may not acknowledge it yet — and really, when did Rome say “yeah, you know what, we’re no longer relevant” — but 2012 will be the date listed as the beginning of the end of America. 1776-2012. It was a nice run while it lasted. We made it longer than most empires. Hello, China,. Nice to know ya! Well, no, I don’t speak Mandarin, but I’m sure government pension boy and his asskissers do… Jim? McKnight? Tsing Tao!? I for one welcome our new overlords!

        On the plus side, I can expect now that unemployment will be extended to 30000 weeks, and the useful idiots can work to pay MY wages until I get a job, which seems to be 2016 or later… how you liking this now, jerkoffs? Knowing that I’m living off YOUR income? Still cool with you? Hell, the Chinese are paying it anyway, so you okay with that?

        America is no more. De Tocqueville has come to fruition. The lefties can come claim their Pyrrhic victory, while they suck Chinese ****. Congrats on overseeing the end, guys. Seriously. You “won”. Woo hoo.

          Unfortunately you speak of facts and truth. Both words foreign to the Obama faction.
          While I agree the situation is dire, I’m not yet willing to throw in the towel.

          There’s still just enough fight in me to…..well…….FIGHT.
          Not since 1860 has this nation been so divided. How this divide plays out will be directly dependent upon one Barack Hussein Obama’s “leadership”.
          Any bets willing to be taken on whether that comes out “better” rather than “worse”?
          I didn’t think so.

            Hey, Carter finally gets his second term. Perhaps we as a nation even survive this. I think not. I truly believe this was our last hurrah. Most great nations make it roughly 200 years. It’s the Chinese’ turn again. With luck, history will at least show that some in America opposed her descent into European debt-ridden socialism, but since the Chinese will get to write that history, who knows?

            I was hoping for a “gubmint cheese” rejection. Guess I expected too much of the “ask what your country can do for you, then demand more!” crowd. One can only hope the postal worker pension dries up.

          • Geoff Caldwell on November 7, 2012 at 12:58 am

            And myself as well. I had really hoped we had not “crossed” just yet but I am as I type listening to the asshole use the devastation of Sandy in his speech and on now about the evil insurance company of some father’s story.
            The man is as much unAmerican now as he was yesterday and the only thing that REALLY saddens me is my grandaughters and nephews will have to just endure. Because when they ask me: “Granpda what did you do to stop Obama, I sadly will have to say, not enough”.
