The Patriot Post® · Heads, They Win, Tails, We Lose
For over 20 years now, many conservatives have asserted that there is no difference between the two parties, that the Republicans and the Democrats are two sides of the same coin. Michael Reagan said one day on his radio show back in the mid-1990s that the difference between Republicans and Democrats is that it takes a Republican about three weeks longer to become a communist. The only thing that has changed since then is that they have added fascist and Islamic jihad apologists to the mix.
Those of us who have not suffered severe blows to the head recall that when Gore and Kerry ran for president, Democrats made a huge issue of the national debt. Obama stridently insisted that the debt under Bush was “unpatriotic.” In 2001, the debt stood at a whopping $5,792,000,000 (that’s five trillion, seven-hundred ninety-two billion), which amounted to 54.8% of our total gross domestic product (GDP) at the time. However, since then, the Democrats, with the willing help of the Republicans, have increased the debt to $18,138,000,000 (that is eighteen trillion, one hundred thirty-eight billion), with an added ½-trillion just since the last Republican cave on the debt ceiling only a couple of months ago. This now is 101.7% of our total GDP. In other words, we now owe more than we produce. We seem to be competing with Greece and Spain. We are being driven toward economic collapse by the members of both parties in our own elected government.
Meanwhile, Obama and the congressional lackeys of the New World Order — this is the Big Money Donor class we hear about occasionally — have followed their instructions and cut spending for the military, forced homosexuals and “transgenders” on it, forced out hundreds of patriotic, non-leftist field-grade officers, and “laid off” tens of thousands of regular troops. What we are left with is a diminished defense capability that has many national security experts seriously concerned.
Now, on top of this, the above mentioned criminal cabal in Washington is in the process of finishing the forced inundation of America with criminal aliens, terrorists, and Muslims who will only obey Shariah law, not the Constitution. It will take very little to tip us into internal chaos, and thus, vulnerability to “intervention” from outside. Think it can’t happen? Think about this:
The chaos caused by communist rioters like Black Lives Matter and the “Occupy Movement,” internal terrorist attacks, an out of control crime wave, and a skyrocketing murder rate becomes the rationale for Obama to declare martial law.
The chaos and martial law cause the economy to collapse.
We default on our national debt payments.
China, our largest real creditor decides in must “intervene” to protect its economic interests, i.e., its massive loans to us that the chaos keeps us from being able to repay, and invades us to “restore order.”
Who, pray tell, is going to stop them? Given what we’ve seen from the Washington Cabal, they will most likely order our military to aid and abet them in crushing us under the hob-nailed boot of totalitarian collectivism. And while many serving today would refuse, by then, it will be too little, too late. For you see, while Obama and his willing Democrat and Republican accomplices have been tearing down our military, China has been going full speed ahead at building up theirs.
There was a time when the Republicans were real patriots, willing to stand up and speak out, to take action to stop those who would destroy America and our way of life. Men like Ronald Reagan, Barry Goldwater, Dwight Eisenhower, Strom Thurmond, Jesse Helms, and Joseph McCarthy. There are a few in Congress today, but only a few. Money appears to have nearly totally corrupted the system, leaving almost no one willing to live up to their oath of office to protect, defend, and obey the Constitution, the Constitution which requires them to provide for the defense of our country and her citizens.
If the Age of Miracles is indeed not over, and a major miracle happens that allows us to make it to November 2016 without a descent into chaos, and the Washington Cabal doesn’t commit massive election fraud, it is a virtual certainty that either Donald Trump or Ted Cruz will win the presidency in a landslide. If we can also give them a genuinely conservative House and Senate by electing a majority of representatives like Trey Gowdy and a majority of senators like Mike Lee, we just might be able to avoid going over the edge and return America to her former greatness. If not, I feel really, REALLY sorry for our children and grandchildren.
