Warning: Some politically INcorrect comments included here, as well as some wisdom from our Founding Fathers. I'm giving this wide distribution. My comments are longer than the article itself.
Please take a few minutes to do some reading, followed by however long it takes to do some reflecting. We are in peril and in my opinion, the vast majority of the American people haven't a clue as to how serious this is. We all need to face truth and fact; to know / understand what we may not now know / understand. It's time to separate the true patriots from the "useful idiot," to borrow a communist phrase. If you are an American, you have an obligation to your country. If you are a veteran, you took an oath to protect and defend her against all enemies--foreign and domestic. Either category, if you don't feel that obligation, feel free to pack your bags and move to Cuba, or Venezuela or any other place that suits you. Far too many of us seem to be willing to give up our liberty rather than stand on principle and our liberty is threatened. ("Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.") Benjamin Franklin; November 11, 1775
Read McCann's article below. It's short. He is correct in my judgement. Within the article there are two links (3rd. paragraph and next-to-last paragraph.) I have added the links below as well. I suggest you read both. They're not long.
"Obama's Fascist Economy" Sept 21, 2011. He draws a strong parallel between what Obama is doing now with the actions of FDR, Hitler and Mussolini.
Because of many factors, some of which include a large uninformed voting public; a "what can you do for me" attitude; a professional political class concerned about the next election and not the country; megalomaniacal narcissists in positions of leadership; a backward moving cultural from being God-centered to being self-centered; and the attitude that "it can never happen here," because of all those and more, it's about to happen here. We're following the path of past nations that self destructed, committing national suicide. And there's no America to come to our rescue as we did for Europe 70 years ago. If we go under, the world becomes "third world." ("The price of freedom is eternal vigilance.") (Thomas Jefferson) Most of us haven't been vigilant for far too long.
If you're one who sits around clueless, you're part of the problem. You best wake up before you find yourself in McCann's shoes in his early life. If you're one who sees what's going on but you're waiting for someone else to say and do something, you're part of the problem. You need to get involved. When is the last time you expressed your opinion to your elected officials? Are you involved in the political process beyond merely voting? If you're one of the many socialist (progressives, statists, Marxists, etc) who likes what you see and applauds it, you ARE the problem. You're not a patriot. You're facilitating our demise. Please leave. Far too many true patriots have given their lives in defense of our freedom and way of life over the past 200+ years to have you carelessly and selfishly destroy her.
We have a closet despot sitting in the Oval Office. Some consider his ill-advised decisions / policies as a lack of experience. I know it to be deliberate. Consider his background and associations and love of Alinsky and the Clower and Piven strategy. Remember, he is out to "fundamentally transform America." ("An elective despotism was not the government we fought for.") Thomas Jefferson.
The future of our country depends on the outcome of this November's election. If Republicans win the White House and the Senate, it will put a pause to our destruction but we'll still have to purge the fascists / Marxists from all areas of government. We'll have four years to work on that. It will take far longer but we can at least start. But, if Mr. Obama is re-elected, we will be in internal rebellion within his next four years. Read that sentence again. Are you ready for that? Rebellion? An American Spring? There are just too many of us who love this country to sit around and allow Obama to destroy her. We may be old, some in wheelchairs, but we're not dead yet. If you can't see this occurring, you're either in denial, uninformed, or.........(fill in the blank.)
Another Thomas Jefferson quote, well known: "God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, and always, well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented, in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions, it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty.... And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to the facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure."
Patriots need to be organizing grassroots defense efforts. If our country came unglued tomorrow would you be ready or caught short? If someone knocked on your door tomorrow and said "we need you to help defend our country and we need you now," would you be willing to go? How many can you take with you? Being an Internet commando, or carrying on life / business as usual, won't get the job done. Read about the life of our Founders at our founding. Put yourself in their shoes fast forwarded to the modern era. Only an estimated 20% of the colonists supported that effort but that was enough. They swore their "lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor." Will you be part of the Re-Founding effort if that becomes necessary? Are you in the 20% or 80%?
We need to push congress for Obama's impeachment. We need to challenge everything he does in Congress, in the public domain, and in the courts. We need to support the so-called "birther" movement. It's really a "constitutionalists" movement. Whether you know it or not Obama does NOT meet the Constitution's requirement of being a "natural born citizen." Even our own US Senate said so back in 2008 (Sen. Res. 511, April 30, 2008). They were addressing John McCain's birth in the Panama Canal Zone but the same rules apply to ALL who seek the presidency. The Senate ignored Obama. Obama voted FOR this resolution himself. Read it for yourself at:
Patriots don't turn a blind eye to constitutional violations, especially in filling the Oval Office, in hopes it will just go away! It's the Constitution! Not following that document is why we're in the mess we're in. Where's Honor? Where's Character? Where's Law? You can also research a US Supreme Court decision, Minor v Happersett, 1875 which gave a definition of "natural born citizen." That's a precedent decision--US Supreme Court. Read these and tell me there is no issue with Obama's constitutionality. And, follow the court case in Atlanta, Jan. 26th that deals with Obama's constitutional eligibility. He will have to prove his eligibility to be placed on the Georgia ballot for 2012. This is a big deal. Three other states have a similar case before their courts. We need conservatives to capture the White House and the Senate. Then we need to hold them accountable for cutting the spending; following the Constitution; reducing the size of government; stop trying to tweak the capitalist economy; repeal abusive, job-killing regulation, including Obamacare; and purging the communists out of government. A tall order. One that requires a lot of support.
I could write three volumns but you get the picture. Nov. 6, 2012 means everything to America's future. We move forward, or we continue the road to our demise, tyranny and civil conflict on our streets. Choose and choose wisely. I do realize there are a lot of you on this list who are involved and that I'm preaching to the choir. Thank you for your efforts. Don't let up.
Not involved? Here are some things you can do: Pray. Support conservative efforts / candidates. Join your local grassroots groups (tea parties, 9-12 groups, Raging Elephants, etc.) (No, tea partiers are not radicals. They're folks just like you who got involved.) If there are no groups near you, start one. Bring people with a common set of values together. There's strength in numbers. Join the Political Process--run for local office--even the school board, or precinct chairman. Write letters to elected officials. Give them your opinion. Follow up again after they send you a response that doesn't say anything except repeat what you told them in your letter. Hold them accountable.
("What country can preserve its liberties if its rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance?") (T. Jefferson)
Write Letters to the Editor of your local papers and embarrass your congressman for a bad vote. Attend Townhall meeting held by your congressman--hold them accountable for a bad vote in front of a few hundred of their voters. Be prepared to protect yourself and family if there is rebellion in the streets (food, water, weapons, ammunition, security systems, medications, neighborhood networks). Can you exist in your home for six months if you couldn't get to a store for supplies? Or to a doctor? How well do you know your neighbors? Can you trust them? Or will they rob you blind when they get hungry? And, did I mention Pray!
After reading the attached, go to this link and see the inroads the communists have made in America. See their goals as of 1963 and see how far they've come in 48 years. They've accomplished 90+% of these goals. We, you and me, and all Americans, allowed this to happen, on our watch. http://www.uhuh.com/nwo/communism/comgoals.htm
(I got this in from a friend as I was composing this email. Very timely.)
For my role, it's time to put a stop to it.
Lastly, Congress recently passed, and Obama signed, the National Defense Authorization bill. A provision of that bill allows our government to retain indefinitely, and without charges, American citizens whom it believes are part of a terrorist group / cell, or individual operating within our borders. Much of Congress was duped here--told it didn't apply to our own citizens. It does. Most probably didn't read the bill they simply trusted the crooks in the next cubicle who drafted it. If YOU are perceived to have terrorist ties, or be a terrorist, you can be detained, for an indefinite time, without charges, until they decide what to do with you. So much for the Fourth Amendment and probably the Sixth as well. It's just another example of our liberties going by the wayside with hardly anyone objecting to it; one more piece of evidence that America is being taken over by the communist mentality--less freedom, more government dependency and control. Did you know this? Did you complain to your Representative / Senator?
So, be careful of what you do. Protect yourself and family but don't give the government reason to think you're a terrorist sympathizer. They have a broad definition of "potential homegrown terrorist." If you're a veteran, or a supporter of the 2nd. amendment, or don't believe in abortion, you fall into their definition. I know for a fact I'm already on a gov't list (Secret Service) as I'm very outspoken. You may be as well. If I should suddenly disappear, come looking for me will you. Raise a ruckus. You could be next. I wear it as a badge of honor.
Thanks for your time.

Obama: The Mask is Off
By Steve McCann
Page Printed from: http://www.americanthinker.com/articles/../2012/01/obama_the_mask_i...
The mask is fully off. Barack Obama is the most corrupt, power-mad president in this nation's illustrious history. By his actions in bypassing Congress and making appointments that should be subject to Senate approval while the Senate is still in session and innumerable extra-constitutional actions since he became president, he is following in the footsteps of the despots who dominated the 20th century.
In late September of 2008, it became clear to me that Barack Obama would be elected president. Based on his background, education, motivation, and indoctrination, I saw a man who could single-handedly destroy the country and someone with no respect for the history, the Constitution, or the people of the United States. The specter of a megalomaniac who was a stranger to the truth and would or say or do anything to achieve or retain power overcame me. In Barack Obama and his fellow travelers, I saw what I feared the most since I came to this country: a person and a political mindset that would, if allowed, spell the end of the noblest experiment in the history of mankind.
It was at that point that I wrote my first article for American Thinker in an attempt to warn the people of America that the result of the 2008 election would be critical to the nation's survival. This was the first column I had written since my college days over 40+ years before, and I am eternally grateful to AT for publishing it and giving me a forum to speak to the American people.
I had to survive a war that was precipitated by those who were initially elected by the people in a democratic fashion. Yet once in power, they began to systematically usurp and overthrow the rule of law. Their lust for power led them to shred any written constitution or traditions as they systematically imposed new regulations, laws, and executive orders geared primarily to centralize authority in the government as individual rights and liberties were extinguished. In due course, they and their cronies became the government, as the people were powerless to stop them.
The people of Germany, the most advanced society in continental Europe, or Italy in the first four years of the 1930s, would have found it incredible to imagine what became of those countries by 1945. They would not think it even remotely possible.
The history of the United States and its traditions of liberty and individual freedom should be a bulwark against the successful emergence of people like Obama and his cronies. Yet why are the media, or the opposition party, or the members of Congress or the judiciary not shouting from the highest hilltop and taking action to stop these power-grabs? Has this country enjoyed peace and prosperity so long that everyone is jaded and preoccupied with him- or herself, or in a self-induced stupor either ignoring what's happening or saying that these unconstitutional steps are minor? Is it because Obama happens to have black skin and everyone is too intimidated by political correctness to speak? Or is it as it was in Germany, Italy, and Russia among many -- a belief that the worst could never happen here?
I have seen and experienced the worst that man can offer, I am not intimidated, and I will say without reservation that Barack Obama and his cronies have the same mindset in their tactical approach, philosophy, and lust for power that was extant in Benito Mussolini and the Fascists in the early days of their regime. If the apologists for those in power in Washington want to vilify me for that comparison, so be it.
To the American people, it is far beyond time to wake up to who this man in the White House is and what his ambitions are. As for the Republicans in the Congress or running for office, the task is upon your shoulders to stop Barack Obama in his tracks before he goes any farther. It is time to do your sworn duty to preserve and protect the country. And for the Democrats who are so blinded by party loyalty that they would sell their country for the proverbial thirty pieces of silver, the long-term difficulties and potential downfall of the greatest nation on earth will be your legacy.
