Most of what we are reading about the S & P decision is both truthful and interesting. None of it, to date, touches on the thing that the Obamites, particularly “The One”, his obnoxious wife and assorted sycophants really care about.
We can start with what they do not much care about: the country, its traditions, its place in the world, freedoms, and the immense good America has brought to the world. (Views on the messes we perpetuated via Wilson’s war, FDR’s war, and fiat money are for another time. Even given those, our contributions have more than compensated, wildly more).
We are in financial trouble largely because of the things we undertook to keep Europe, South America, and parts of Asia free. They drained our will and our treasury while allowing protected nations to develop pernicious social welfare systems. Absent America’s tax dollars and blood, and exceptionalism none of them could have afforded to protect themselves and build socialist welfare states simultaneously. Obviously they required some help after FDR’s war and Wilson’s war but we subsidized them far too long. Our efforts, even those in Southeast Asia, while arguably failures, stemmed the tide of global Communism and drained its resources.
Many of them should have been avoided as we could not afford them, absent bankrupting out children. It is axiomatic that money wins wars as often as strategy, order of battle, or tactics. As our allies “paid” in lip service, we paid in blood and treasure. Fiat money and seemingly infinite borrowing capacity made that possible. Along with Pyrrhus, we won the battles but lost the war.
“The One” and his ilk dismiss American exceptionalism and find robust Americanism to be unseemly or jingoistic. It is all about HIM and his quest to bring the US into a socialized world government.
He and his coterie now know that his re-election is in serious jeopardy. The S & P downgrade threatens that re-election and THAT IS ALL THAT MATTERS. Why worry about our nation’s future, our heirs, or anything else when the emperor’s reign is put in doubt by ungrateful voters? Can’t they see his wonderfulness? Obama is wounded and the jackals are circling, some financed by the loathsome George Soros, who has infinite resource. This portends great danger for Obama and may actually take him down.
By the time he gives up the ghost or limps to the nomination, however, even a hapless Republican candidate will appear Reaganesqe by comparison. A victory for the conservative cause will be great, but victory for our nation is absolutely necessary for survival.
After bankrupting the nation, enslaving our heirs, and heaping misery on the most vulnerable, the only saving grace is Obama’s defeat. Hardly worth a celebration, but it is a start thanks to American exceptionalism.
