|Stop this terrible thing already in motion|
Letter to the Editor:
I have the belief that Obama has done nothing to help our country, and in fact, has done everything he can to subjugate us. He has preached these ideals for decades now, is close friends with those who push these beliefs and even included them in his book. Yet he was re-elected.He has taken freedoms away from us. He has put us deeper into debt. Our dollar is growing poorer as are we. He has given away trillions to useless entities. Now we, our children and our grandchildren are stuck with the bill and less freedom. How can this be so? How can the American people re-elect someone who does this? Well it is actually quite simple.
A man by the name of Edmund Burke once wrote, “Those who don’t know history are doomed to repeat it.”
There is also another theory known as the Tytler Cycle, which states that, “No democracy can exist as a permanent form. It can only exist until the majority discovers it can vote itself generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority will always vote for the candidate that promises the most benefits from the public treasury. The end result is loose fiscal policy. This triggers a collapse, and a dictatorship will begin.”
We are now at an extraordinary time in our country’s life. More people are on welfare than ever before and government employees are rampant with unbelievable power (the Internal Revenue Service, National Security Administration, Transportation Security Administration and etc.).
So why did they vote for someone who is doing this? Quite simple actually. They voted for the guy who will give them generous gifts from the public treasury. And because the majority does not study history, they don’t realize or understand what is actually happening. It is not known to them that socialism has never worked in the history of the world. The poor stay poor, the middle class get poor and the rich get poor. All the while, the government taxes as much as they can to pay for their extravagant excess. The chance to actually succeed evaporates.
The people who founded this country and those who immigrated here came from countries with a socialist-totalitarian type of government. Those are the people that originally built this country. They came here with nothing but the idea that you could succeed in America. Millions of them did just that, they came and they succeeded.
Those who stayed in their home country were poor, murdered, terrorized and trampled upon. Here in America, they were free to do as they feel and follow the religious beliefs that they base their principles on.
Then there were those who gave up hope in a candidate or the system; they didn’t vote because they felt their vote didn’t matter. Too many Americans died giving them that right to vote, and they cast it away like the shots at Bunker Hill, the minié balls at Gettysburg and the blood flowing into the ocean along the beaches of Normandy. They turned the other cheek and let themselves be hit by the tidal wave instead of doing what they could to stop it.
Someone once said that a single drop will not affect a river, but millions of drops will. But history has been forgotten and we are at the precipice of our society, tipped to socialism. The fall will be hard if we let it continue. The time has come to batten down the hatches and fight this terrible thing that is now in motion.
