What is now in order as baby steps
As easily as possible, nah, as gentle as possible we will slowly present and discuss issues of emanate unusual bizarreness however painfully scrupulous and as vigilant as the topics may be. Our challenges are daunting and our path is difficult, but there are near- and long-term goals we must pursue.
With any degree of hope this is not a time sensitive course of action. What we need to do is reflect on the events of the election, query and question why a nation that appeared done with its foray of leadership being involved with all sorts of illegal activities from walking guns to cartels to openly dealing with elements known to be on enemy combatant lists.
We need to learn from this experience, whist getting up and preparing for the future’s challenges. Let me just say that while it is necessary and important to defend against soft, open tyranny, while things look as gloomy as they possibly can, it is time we become more proactive and take aggressive steps against this. We must take control of the future. We must follow a new course truly a conservative, constitutional course.
The problems which our society faces are complex and thus require nuanced solutions. For example, government responses which assume that poverty is solely the result of circumstances beyond a person’s control or, conversely, solely someone’s fault, will miss the root causes of this issue. And maybe even thrust people to use food stamps and other entitlements which they normally would not.
In addition, we must certainly not forget who we are as a Nation; moreover, who we are with the world’s oldest successful ruling guidelines that we have in our Constitution. Furthermore, we see our Nation as like the boxer who having hit the canvas twice each round for every round, we still maintain to get up and continue the fight.
The notion is envisioned that we take our laborious issues such as immigration reform – and rather than find a vote-pleasing way by which to correct the entire system of the (former) Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) by the stroke of the pen has really not reformed anything at all.
In an action such as immigration reform whereby the POTUS signed and issued a Memorandum of Understanding to the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) with orders and whatnot. Therefore allowing for unlawful status changes in the work behaviors, permanent resident changes, and allowing an unqualified and unlawful version of the DREAM Act to move gently through the night is abdicating every reasonable reference to problem-solving known throughout history of humankind.
Here is a small prelude to the reality of what’s going on and we need to prepare —
Only in America can a president who inherits a deep recession and whose policies have actually made the effects of that recession worse get re-elected. Only in America can a president who wants the bureaucrats who can’t run the Post Office to micromanage the administration of every American’s health care get re-elected. Only in America can a president who kills Americans overseas who has never been charged or convicted of a crime get re-elected. Finally only in America can a president who borrowed and spent more than $5 trillion in fewer than four years plans to repay none of it and promises to borrow another $5 trillion in his second term get re-elected.
It is fair to say that Obama is the least skilled and least effective American president since Jimmy Carter, but he is far more menacing. His every instinct is toward the central planning of the economy and the federal regulation of private behavior. He has no interest in protecting American government employees in harm’s way in Libya, and he never admits he has been wrong about anything.
Though he took an oath to uphold the Constitution, he treats it as a mere guideline, whose grand principles intended to guarantee personal liberty and a diffusion of power can be twisted and compromised to suit his purposes. He rejects the most fundamental of American values — that our rights come from our Creator, and not from the government.
His rejection of that leads him to an expansive view of the federal government, which permits it, and thus him, to right any wrong, to regulate any behavior and to tax any event, whether authorized by the Constitution or not, and to subordinate the individual to the state at every turn.
It is unsettling to find Obama back in the White House for another four years. That sinking feeling comes from the knowledge that he is free from the need to keep an eye on the electorate, and from the terrible thought that he may be the authoritarian we have all known and feared would visit us one day and crush our personal freedoms.
