National Micro-Insanity Is Why Leftism Is Taking Control Of America.
Never, prior to the age of Obama, would any state or local government have suggested that men should have a right to enter a women’s restroom. But under the president who promised to “fundamentally transform America” it’s come true.
Why is it that Hillary, whose husband signed DOMA into law in 1996, is now in favor of same-sex marriage? Why did Obama change his mind on homosexual marriage and begin the push for it after rejecting it prior to the last two presidential elections? Why did Bruce Springsteen, only now and not ten years ago, get all uppity and insist that men should invade a woman’s private restroom area? Why has Obama opened up our borders to all comers when in the past a secure border was not only important to keeping the public safe but absolutely defined a functioning nation?
Why has this nation, which has been so successful over the past 200-plus years at being wealthy and secure, at creating jobs and allowing people to achieve their goals and achieve personal success, now have politicians claiming that jobs should have a minimum pay; taxes should be even higher than they are; that government should issue masses of regulations restricting how people behave on their own land; that every person should be promised a cell phone; that every citizen of every nation has a right to live in America illegally; that everyone should have a right to internet access but be denied the right to own a gun; and that the government should pay for every citizen’s college education? These deviant ideas were held at bay by politicians who understood right from wrong and good from bad, but we are now seeing politicians who are fighting each other for the absolute power that Obama has defined via an increasingly big and intrusive government, and they are competing, Republicans and Democrats alike, for the votes of deviant leftists who have banded together and made their voices violently heard at anti-Trump rallies, at hands-up-don’t–shoot and black-lives-matter protests and any of the “occupy” movements.
Just as socialism has always been off-limits to Americans because it’s been a failure everywhere it’s been tried, higher taxation was always understood to be contrary to American citizens’ economic fortunes. The president not abiding by duly passed laws and dis-obeying the constitution were not even considered by any former sitting president. And weakening our national borders was contrary to logic. But under Obama and his aggressive anti-American policies these formerly verboten ideas are now common practice. Socialism, high taxes, and denial of laws and the constitution, have already begun to be the destruction of America’s promise for personal achievement and happiness on the part of each citizen.
Prior to the Republican and Democrat rush to satisfy the whining demand of leftists for goodies, the American dream was intact. But with both parties responding to the deviant ideas that are contrary to common sense, public safety and achievement, just to maintain the party leaders’ personal power and influence, this leftward drift will end badly for all Americans, and the larger world that depends on America’s power and influence.
A nation that has gone from legally welcoming refugees who shed tears at the sight of the Statue of Liberty, to one where illegal aliens casually traipse across our border, scorn our flag, deny our language, ignore our modes of conduct and demand welfare and free healthcare upon arrival, is a nation at great risk to its own existence. Our national micro-insanity is firmly established and we’d better relearn old lessons of government and personal deportment or we’re lost.
