Fiscal Cliff, Republican posturing, Obama's road to Communism

Is a Good, Old-Fashioned Purge in Order for the GOP?

On November 19, Pravda’s Xavier Lerma wrote an article asserting that President (I use the term loosely) Barack Obama had been re-elected “by an illiterate society.” Some conservatives have been wont to dismiss and ridicule some of the dead-on assessments of the former Soviet newspaper since it was once in fact a Soviet newspaper.

Some of this dismissal and ridicule did occur relative to Lerma’s piece; I think however, that such observations made by those who have been there and done that ought to be considered, if not heeded. 

Lerma writes “He [Obama] is a Communist without question promoting the Communist Manifesto without calling it so… His cult of personality mesmerizes those who cannot go beyond their ignorance. They will continue to follow him like those fools who still praise Lenin and Stalin in Russia.  Obama’s fools and Stalin’s fools share the same drink of illusion.”

Sounds pretty dead-on if you ask me…

Now, obviously we know that the problem does not lie simply with Obama. I and a few others have widely stated that he was chosen to exponentially advance the Marxist (oligarchical collectivist) agenda in America because he is black, and this was a good call inasmuch as it has worked. Many of his political opponents were and remain too afraid to challenge him for fear of being accused of racism.

As we also know, reasoning that Americans were too fat and happy to incite a communist revolution among them, the intent of dedicated communists in the early 20th century was to co-opt the American educational system, the press, and as much of the government as would be sufficient to bring about their designs via more subtle means.

This they are quite close to achieving, although it does bear mentioning that history and the status quo of Americans having been too fat and happy to incite a communist revolution among them is indicative of two things:

  1. Capitalism is superior to communism, and
  2. Communists are manifestly evil, predatory power-mongers.

Carrying this out a little farther, we also come to realize that the problem does not lie simply with the political left in America. For years, the Republican leadership has been accused by conservatives and libertarians of being weak, stupid, or both relative to their handling of leftists. It has been known for some time that many so-called moderate Republicans are really no more than big-government, soft socialists, but given the developments of the last couple of months, it appears that the situation is far worse than that.

Among other things, it has become painfully evident that prominent Republican leaders have also elected to adopt the same attitude toward constitutionally-minded, patriotic Americans and evangelical Christians as have leaders on the left. This would include, but is not limited to those in the Tea Party Movement. Considering the massive voting bloc that is represented here, it is also evident that their actions are of a political or ideological nature, rather than the pretext of not wishing to be associated with “fringe” factions. It is plain to all save for the hopelessly brainwashed and MSNBC anchors that the Tea Party is not of a “fringe” deportment; indeed, a good deal of this propaganda has been promoted and validated by Republican politicians themselves.

In addition to this, as cited by many ethnic minorities and Democrat pundits, Republican leaders have performed abysmally in their outreach to minorities. This now raises the question as to whether they have ever been interested in the support of blacks, Latinos, and other ethnic groups. My supposition at this juncture is that they are not.

Perhaps all this hasn’t been a matter of not knowing how to compete with Democrat entitlements (“gifts,” as former GOP candidate Mitt Romney intoned), but a calculated effort to aid the machinations of their supposed political opponents.

Over the past two weeks, congressional lawmakers have been posturing over the “fiscal cliff” upon which America is allegedly teetering, and the resulting debate on taxes: Obama wants to raise taxes; the Republicans in Congress ostensibly want to cut spending; the Democrats offer some spending cuts in trade for raising taxes, and so on… Considering the intellectual indolence of the American public thus far, I suppose there’s no reason for Congress and the Obama administration to believe we’d call them out for this blatant display of smoke and mirrors.

With the knowledge that increasing income taxes to 100% on all earners in the US, and confiscating every dollar we currently possess wouldn’t make a ding in the national debt or the deficit, let alone a dent, it becomes obvious that all of the maneuvering by Republican lawmakers is mere pretense. Why not simply detail the detrimental effects that raising taxes will have on the economy?

Perhaps because they don’t want advertise these facts to the American public any more than Obama does…

While it might be a no-brainer to you and me, the average non-partisan American voter will not be aware that this is the worst possible time for Republicans to be conciliatory with regard to this administration on any issue. Thus, they will perceive Republicans as obstructionist if they do not compromise with evil. Any Republican lawmaker possessed of the knowledge of Obama’s intent ought to be fighting him at every possible turn as a matter of course, publicity be damned.

I would also submit that there aren’t any GOP lawmakers who are sufficiently stupid or uninformed not to know that Obama is taking us down the road to communism. If they presume to this, they are engaging in deception.
