Left/Right - Day/Night

Just how far apart are we in the United States? The divide could not be greater.

Just over half of us are passionate about individual freedom and hold as truth that we are endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable Rights. Yet, nearly half of this once great nation ardently believes they are entitled to be taken care of by their government. They support the decades old transfer of wealth (socialism) that is taking place at an alarmingly accelerated pace under the Obama Administration.
Some within the entitlement group have no idea that the government has no money. They do not understand that we in the private sector have our money taken from us and transferred to them. They assume it is all “Obama Stash”. Others just don’t care where the money comes from as long as they are on the receiving end.

Sadly, there is another group that I think of as the Super-rich with White Guilt. These elitist are made up of politicians, Harvard trained lawyers and Hollywood celebrities. They make possible the soft slavery of “entitlements.” They claim to do this out of compassion. In truth, they do it to massage their own giant egos. They want the entire world to know how much they care. Of course, this maintains a subservient class to service their life styles. This is not an unintended consequence.

My new book American Revolution 2010 – A Tea Party Patriot’s Call to Arms is a warning for those too busy with their day-to-day lives to be aware of the dangers we are now facing from enemies within our own government. It is written with passion and candor. It is not politically correct or partisan for either political party. The response to my book has been overwhelmingly positive. Of course, with that title, those purchasing the book are not One-World-Order enthusiast. I did, however, send a free copy to a Washington DC liberal lawyer (redundant, I know). His response clearly depicts just how deeply divided we have become. Here is his reply:

“I disagree with just about everything in your book. Seeing subversive plots by people one disagrees with strikes me as paranoid.” He went on to say that he considered me and the Tea Party movement as “profoundly un-American.”

I think that accurately defined our differing views. There is no room for nuance. Our nation’s wealth is being systematically and ravenously consumed. Unless we dramatically reduce government spending, there will be nothing left for those in Washington to steal. No bankrupt nation can long remain sovereign. Perhaps that is the point?

  1. Glen,

    I think you've just hit on the most terrifying threat to America's freedoms of all. At one time I used to think it was just voter apathy that allowed government to become what it is today. But as you point out, it is much worse than that. Could it really be that we have a citizenship of socialists just awaiting their dictator? And what becomes of the rest of us so called "paranoid un-American's"?

    We must talk about this with people besides those whom are already enlightened. There must be an understanding of our American history and its cost. It must not be taken for granted by anyone on American soil. We can not let them wait until all freedom is lost to realize its worth. We need to be the educators while there is still a shred of hope that peaceable change is possible.

    Keep the faith and keep up the good fight!
