The enemy -us -is winning

  • Follow Letters

Obama is Caesar, and will rule, not govern nor lead!

The black population, understandably proud that one of their own had reached this pinnacle, voted overwhelmingly for him. White liberals, perhaps aware of the terrible history of the Democrats and race relations, voted for him to assuage their own guilt at their party's record of pro-slavery, anti-civil rights, segregation, The Ku Klux Klan and Jim Crow laws!

These were all authored by Democrats, not Republicans!

Certainly no one bothered to scrutinize Caesar and his past associations, nor question what the "change" he promised meant! Now we see, and he's coming after your health care under the ruse of "saving" it, just like the other businesses he has made wards of the government!

The words Marxist, socialist, and communist, of course, do not resonate with our citizens, especially the younger age groups. They have no memory or experience as a point of reference, so these are just words that have no real significance to them! Yet, in their youthful hubris, they feel they are the wisest of the wise! They casually dismiss the difference between the above and free-market capitalism as inconsequential.

Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez states that "Comrade Obama is more left wing than (Chavez) is!"

An article in the former Soviet newspaper Pravda remarks on the swiftness of our descent into Marxism under Caesar!

As a consequence of Caesar's coronation, we once again have a monarch to replace King George III; but Caesar, too, has the markings of a tyrant, and so, perhaps this is how and where our republic ends.

We have come full circle, to be destroyed by the greed and ignorance of our own citizens just as Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev predicted! As the comic strip character "Pogo" would say, "we have met the enemy and he is us!"

Robert Smock, Hephzibah

You are correct about our

You are correct about our youngest voters. But it is more than youthful hubris. Many of these young folks who feel that they are qualified to pass judgement on a system of commerce and government that has worked well for 233 years have no real world experience from which to make those decisions. Many are still living at home on mommy and daddy's dime. All are a product of an educational system stuffed with liberal educators who are educators because they could not function in job where they had to produce a product or become unemployed. We have truly reaped what we sowed. But when mommy and daddy's money is all gone these young folks will develop and new set of values very quickly and the worm will turn. Whether it will be too late by then is probably a question of what happens in the next two elections.

Sorry Robert, those old Dems

Sorry Robert, those old Dems from the Jim Crow days are now Repubs. The defection started with the Dixiecrats and Strom Thurmond after the Dems suported desegregation in 1948 and became full force after the Voting Rights Act. They're your guys now. Enoy them, they're the base of the Repub Party.

Yes, this is a great example for the Republican Base. This is an accurate representation of their voter population. Liberals should be in power for a very long time. Keep-up the good work, Smock!

The liberals don't understand

The liberals don't understand that their own freedoms are also in jeopardy. Do you liberals actually think Obama is going to stop at the conservative beliefs. Just wait, your freedoms will be taken away, along with the conservatives. Liberals are just to ignorant to see it coming.

Yes TechLover, none of the

Yes TechLover, none of the Democrat ideas that established the Democrat party exists, they've all gone to the Republican party. Or all of the Republican ideas are now part of the Democrat party or they're so blended and homogenized that they're indistinguishable. Blaming all of our countries woes on the Democrats makes as much sense as your comment that "those old Dems are now Repubs". The incestuous relationship enjoyed by these two parties for the past two decades has led to the socialist power grab we're enjoying now. Pointing fingers and chanting mantras won't help this country at this point. Both parties and their bureaucracies need to be removed NOW and replaced with people that believe the constitution is still the law of the land.

The usual lunatic b.s. from

The usual lunatic b.s. from Smock, who's in the Letter a Month Club. I hate to tell you, but this white liberal didn't vote for Obama to assuage my guilt. My vote had nothing to do with his skin color. Apparently, you think that everything boils down to race. BTW, black voters vote disproportionately for Democratic candidates (note the proper spelling there, PT, it's not "Democrat" candidates) so it's not as if THEY voted for him because he's black, either. They would have voted for Hillary in the same percentages. And Smock, maybe next time you can leave off the exclamation points. Did your English teacher never tell you that they are easily overused....and you used ten of 'em.

This is dramatic rhetoric,

This is dramatic rhetoric, but it reveals the author is, at heart, merely a drama queen. The average high schooler is as well educated as the men who founded this country. The leaders of industry today are young men and women under 30. Referring to historical events by party is a asnine as ideology has shifted over the history of our system--the ideologues themselves have merely perched wherever they were accepted. Socialism has many forms besides pure Marxism and that archetypal Soviet monstrosity we all remember. However, while Obama clearly hangs to the left, he is not a Marxist, he is not trying to rule, he is clearly trying to clean up a mess that has exploded after fifty or so years of waiting to burst. We may be the enemy, but not because we elected Obama; rather, it is because we let ourselves go for so long that we needed an Obama.

Gee, JACKFRUIT...I thought
Unpublished

Gee, JACKFRUIT...I thought only white people were racists? You sure prove that wrong everyday. The only recourse we have is to tell the stooges in the mainstream media and Hollywood to go to Hell and vote for the candidate with real ideas, ones that work, not make us feel good. Some of those ideas, like ending entitlement programs, are going to be hard, and will make millions whine like crying babies being denied a breast to nurse on. Some ideas, like voting in a balanced budget ammendment for our constitution and making our government live within it's means will be hard too. Too bad...it has to be done, and by candidates who want to do what is best for the country, and not just worried about getting re-elected. Good luck finding them. Right now, neither party has any, and these idiots in power now are free to wreck the country until next year's elections. God help us!

Until I got to the end of the

Until I got to the end of the letter I was thinking, another angry CON, but where Smuck wrote, "We have come full circle, to be destroyed by the greed and ignorance of our own citizens just as Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev predicted! As the comic strip character "Pogo" would say, "we have met the enemy and he is us!"

Never a truer statement!

Patricia, thank you for your 7:38 post. It is time to quit voting for Republicans. Instead, vote Libertarian next time. Even better, get out and work for your Libertarian candidate. It is tough to get on the ballot as a third party in Georgia.

HOTFOOT, if abortion is none of the government's business, are you saying that abortion clinics shouldn't receive a dime of government money to operate? If you are, I totally agree!

southernguy, I'm sure you're

southernguy, I'm sure you're talking about Planned Parenthood, which is much more than an abortion clinic. They are major distributors of family planning information and birth control, and those are important services to the larger community, not least of all to save money. So while I would be against government support for abortion-only clinics, they do other work that benefits taxpayers.

Hotfoot, in case you didn't

Hotfoot, in case you didn't know, the use of Democrat rather than Democratic is intentional and meant to be grating. The word has been used for years by Republicans. Technically you are right, but the word Democrat is in common usage now. So get off your high grammatical horse.

KSL, I know full well about the Republican practice of employing "Democrat" where "Democratic" is proper and correct...I'm not on my grammatical high horse, as you claim, but I think it has the opposite effect that you intend. Instead of sounding clever, it makes you all sound backwoods, uneducated, and frankly stupid. But then...

Smock is correct, whether you approve of his wording or not. America is destroying itself, and happily so, in it's ignorance. America once stood above the rest of the world; now the world cheers and jeers because it has fallen to it's knees in amorality and slothfulness. Somewhere, (metaphorically speaking), Captain America is crying.
