Today (Sunday) I posted a video of Ray Charles singing America The Beautiful. In the comments section, fellow blogger Hyphenated American offered his thoughts, from a post he offered on his own blog earlier in the day.
Hyphenated American understands all too well the road we are traveling. From his profile:
I was born, raised and educated in the former USSR, but currently I reside in the United States. This means that in addition to being very well-versed in Marxism-Leninism, I also have a pretty deep understanding of American politics and history.And from his blog header:
If you are suddenly in the mood to read the insane ramblings of a Jewish-Russian-Chinese Cossack about American politics (word of caution: English is his second language) - then you found the right blog.Without further adieu, here are the thoughts of this former Soviet citizen. While his words ring true every day; at this time they seem more needed than ever before.
I Want My Country Back!
It seems like the ultra-liberals have been able to bribe and coerce enough congress-scumbags to pass the Obamacare. And as I said before, there would be hell to pay for this monstrosity. Obamacare is the very definition of unlimited government - the threat of which was forewarned by the Founding Fathers more than two centuries ago. The federal government, which is up to its neck in debt and unfunded liabilities, decided to launch the biggest entitlement of all times – the medical care for all. The spending on this new entitlement will surely dwarf many if not most of Federal programs and will make the bankruptcy of federal and state governments inevitable. The time of reckoning is at hand, brothers and sisters. Obamacare is the last breath of the liberal order – and it’s time to take America back from the party of thieves and looters.
All patriots of this nation must stand together and fight back. United we will win! There is no blue or red America anymore – there are only those that believe in America the beautiful, America the free, America the shining city on the hill – and those that believe in welfare socialism and government tyranny. Today, we fight not only for our personal well-being – but for the dignity and honor of this country, for the right to look into the eyes of our children and say – we defended this nation from the perils of socialism. In November 2010, we will answer the crucial questions of our times - are American people worthy of the efforts of the Founding Fathers? Will American people have to right to proudly say “We are Americans” – or they will forever live in infamy and indignity of welfare socialism?
I am glad that the Democratic Party passed the Rubicon. From now on, there is no coming back for the liberal elites, no talk of compromise and middle-ground. Today, it is abundantly clear that we either will live in Obama-America or America that our Founding Father envisioned. You cannot have both.
The November elections will be the most important elections in our lifetime. If you don’t vote for America in November – you don’t deserve to be called an American.
