The Revolution overwhelms, stuns, leaves no time to grasp its eruption until it is too late. On Sunday, we stood in shock as the President socialized one sixth of our economy and crippled our ability to care for the sick and dying. The CBO just anounced that, by 2020, our debt will be 90% of our GDP. The news of Obama’s deliberate, acidic humiliation and attempt to manipulate Israel, our sole democratic ally in the radicalized Middle East, and his ordering U.S. Banks to risk their stability in order to subsidize his future dependent voters, comes on the heels of the HealthCare take-over with terrifying rapidity.
The moment of truth, however, is the announcement that the President has signed a pact with Russia:
“President Barack Obama and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev agreed on Friday to sharp cuts in the nuclear arsenals of both nations in the most comprehensive arms control treaty in two decades. ‘We have turned words into action,’ Obama declared.”
“Obama said the pact, to be signed April 8 in Prague, was part of his effort to “reset” relations with Russia and a step on a path toward ‘the peace and security of a world without nuclear weapons.’”
Of course, many will remember the story of Obama’s missing senior thesis from Columbia:
“Conservative provocateurs have been hunting for it. Investigative journalists have been on the prowl, too. Even a former professor has been searching through old boxes for his copy of it. But today Barack Obama made it official: He doesn’t have and can’t release any copies of the thesis-length paper he wrote 25 years ago while a senior at Columbia University.”
“We do not have a copy of the course paper you requested and neither does Columbia University,” Obama spokesman Ben LaBolt told NBC News.”
The hunt for Obama’s senior “thesis” began with a throwaway line in a newspaper article last October. The New York Times story, on Obama’s early New York years, mentioned in passing that the presidential contender had majored in political science at Columbia and had spent his time “writing his thesis on Soviet nuclear disarmament.”
Are we walking into the Gulag with our eyes wide open? Our love for the rule of law, our respect for the stability and security of our Constitution make the thought of civil disobedience repugnant to American patriots. Yet here we are, in March 2010, and a President with known Marxist connections and ideology, accomplishes in one week what Communist Revolutionaries have dreamed of for a century. Russia doesn’t need an arsenal. One man will hand over 300,000,000.
The greatest triumph of Marxism will not be the victory over the temporal, political, and economic orders, but rather, the destruction of the human spirit, the transformation of a free people into a nation of bystanders, executioners of their own and their neighbor’s God-given right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. If Barack Obama is not stopped in this course, we will be legislated and Executive Ordered into the mental and physical Gulag. We will first tolerate in the name of patriotic obedience, then endure in the name of personal preservation, that dehumanizing servitude from which we spent a century fighting to deliver the rest of the world.
Perhaps we can pause and acknowledge the mental turmoil that others wrestled with when trying to decide if the moment had come to resist, or if waiting for another, or a clearer sign from those who controlled their lives, would yield the cessation of oppression. It is so easy to scream to the shadows of the past that they should have known, should not have walked so meekly to their slaughter. What will our children say of us?
Today, the President of the United States is disarming us while claiming that we still have “a massive arsenal.” Do we have the right to be lulled by this whispering reassurance? Have we learned anything about the inexorable pathway trodden by all nations who have fallen under the hammer of Marxism? Do we really have to sit here while Barack Obama lowers the Iron Curtain around America in the space of a week?
There is criminal, maddening, Machiavellian irony in Obama’s choice of words by which he consigns his own nation to the barbed wire we helped to dismantle while his mentors spit on us:
“‘In many ways, nuclear weapons represent both the darkest days of the Cold War, and the most troubling threats of our time. Today, we have taken another step forward in leaving behind the legacy of the 20th century while building a more secure future for our children,’ Obama said at the White House.”
“Thou shalt never be a perpetrator. Thou shalt never be a victim. And thou shalt never, but never, be a bystander.”
