We the People Have Met The Enemy and It Is Not They the Politicians. It’s Us!

By John Sykes

We The People have forgotten the We and blame everything on They The Politicians. It’s hard to point our fingers at ourselves but we must. Using our own moral and ideological positions, we elect and need to take responsibility for those we put in office.

Re-examine what is right and wrong. Then take back our Republic. Get rid of the parasites who populate the political elite and their bureaucrat minions. Put in good people who know right from wrong and would rather serve than profit. Now! Or we are done!

This is said much better and eloquently in Is It All Obama’s Fault? by Larry Miller:

Sometimes those who are not quite so close to a situation can see it with more clarity than those in the midst of the battle. A few days ago, I received a quote from a German newspaper published in the Czech Republic,Prager Zeitung. They have more insight into our political situation and certainly more courage than any major domestic news source. The writer said,

“The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools, such as those who made him their president.”

Of course the article was right on target. Those who are trying simply to unseat Barack Hussein Obama, while the efforts are admirable, are simply missing the whole point of our current predicament. Using logic and common sense will have little impact on those who have been taught to feel aggrieved by real or imagined wrongs. Appealing to a sense of history and reverence for the founders won’t sway the products of the public indoctrination system that sees these heroes as simply dead white guys who have no relevance for today.

The point is that we have the socialist in the White House because there were enough people who wanted a socialist in the White House. There were – and still are – a host of people who want to live off of “Obama money” – that is, money he has looted from the producers in the land and money he has borrowed so the children of these same producers will have to pay it off for the rest of their lives. Arguments about unsustainable debt simply do not register with a large segment of the American voting public… they just want their stuff.
