Restore America 101By Lloyd Marcus
What patriots find most alarming about the re-election of Obama is the feeling that we have lost America.
Recently, a pro football player committed suicide after murdering his girlfriend. The media blames guns and football for the shooting. They act as if the football player bore no responsibility, which is in keeping with Obama's new America.
This is why we who cherish morals, decency, hard work, and personal responsibility are so upset that Obama has four more years to further his decline of America.
Admittedly, the decline of America began long before Barack Obama. However, under Obama, America's decline has been on steroids. He won re-election promising to punish the rich and encouraging Americans to indulge in an orgy of mediocrity featuring endless unemployment benefits, an unprecedented number of Americans on food stamps, half the country on welfare, and free Obamaphones.
Such is the new normal in Obama's new America.
So yes, we patriots are heartbroken.
After serving in the Merchant Marines, my black dad earned a humble living as a day laborer. In 1956, he broke the color barrier into the Baltimore City Fire Department. The white firefighters hated my dad and did not want him at Engine 6. And yet, despite horrific conditions, Dad won Firefighter of the Year two times.
Dad won not because of lowered standards, affirmative action, or someone deciding it's the black guy's turn. Dad won because he was the best! Such was a time when America celebrated excellence.
Have we totally lost that America?
What offends me most about the Obama administration is that Obama continues to lower the bar of what it means to be an American. Given his re-election, one can only assume that a large percentage of Americans are OK with Obama's ask-what-your-country-can-do-for-you-rather-than-what-you-can-do for-your-country new vision for America. Screw work! Just gimme, gimme, gimme!
Dad did not believe that government owed him or his five kids the American Dream. With me at his side, Dad marched with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. to assure that his kids would have an opportunity to pursue the American Dream. Today, far too many Americans believe that the job of government is to confiscate wealth to divvy out the American Dream equally to every American.
When did we lose Dad's America?
When did we become a country in which government and media celebrate immorality, laziness, and covetousness? Occupy Wall Street thugs are declared heroes representing a majority of Americans for demanding that government confiscate the earnings of achievers for redistribution. When did it become morally correct in America for government to confiscate and give away the harvest reaped by hardworking citizens?
Were we asleep when America launched its War on Achievers?
Athletes who perform at the highest levels are inducted into the Hall of Fame. And yet, extraordinary success in the arena of finances is frowned upon and deemed evil. Remarkably, Mitt Romney's extraordinary financial success was effectively marketed as a negative against him in the presidential campaign.
When did being exceptional in business become demonic in America?
Well, here is a dirty little universal truth that the gimme crowd may not be aware of. The word is reciprocity. Reciprocity means we mutuality give to/help each other. But when that relationship becomes one-sided, the giver stops giving. How long will Obama get away with seducing new voters by taking from achievers to redistribute to non-achievers before the givers say, "Screw it" and stop working?
How do we restore America? The answer: we continue to Tea Party.
The Tea Party began when patriots looked behind the curtain of white guilt and media hype to see Obama's overreaching, his trashing the Constitution, and his socialistic/progressive agenda. Over the last four years, the Tea Party has evolved into countless organizations and a growing army of sophisticated political activists.
Obama winning re-election was the loss of a major battle. However, beware, Obama and company -- we have no intentions of surrendering our country or losing this war.
Future battles will include taking back our culture and educating dumbed-down, clueless Americans on the superior virtues/benefits of conservatism over liberalism.
And another thing -- we must stop being passive when Democrats throw absurd character-assassination-grenades such as Republicans/conservatives want blacks in slavery and women barefoot and pregnant. We must boldly get in their faces and rebuke their vile, hate-inspiring, divisive lies.
I have also had it with black Americans being allowed and even encouraged to be racist. Black racists believe that Authentic Blackness or "Racial Pride" means maintaining at least a minimal resentment against whites and our country. Racism is evil wherever it flexes its venomous tongue -- time to call such people out!
So, I am ready. I am prayed up, and my powder is dry. Let's roll!
