The enemy within


Historically, tyrants by dynasty, warfare or quasi democratic elections seized power in countries like Russia, Iran, Egypt, Syria and Germany. Electing regimes with such demonstrable ideological antithesis to freedom and liberty is baffling? Is the human psyche easily subjected to dictatorial suppression? Are we predisposed to embrace propagated illusions shrouded in delusions of grandeur that implode leaving us to live in denial?

Fear is a paralyzing venom. Tyrants suffocate opposing cultures by supplanting their historical heritage, language of word meanings, customs, traditions and faith values. Fear of the strong arm of government is a formidable controlling means used by those intoxicated with power securing totalitarianism progressively eradicating freedom and liberty. From the Bible’s “that they shall neither buy nor sell” to Orwell’s 1984 mankind is captivatingly anticipating a powerful centralized government that seizes every aspect of our lives.

Is America in a battle of ideological worldviews? Religious beliefs are undeniably intrinsic to the rule of law and ideological worldviews. Christian and Judaism ideologies anticipate a reigning Messiah. Islam, a Mahdi, ruling a Caliphate Islamic government along with a political leader governing according to Sharia Law.

Deluging scandals with ensuing ramifications are unveiling Obama Democrat’s ideological worldview. Consider the following. Who gave the “Stand Down” order leaving Americans to die in Benghazi including heroic Navy Seals Glen Doherty and Tyron Woods? The high profile federal incursion of the Gibson guitar factory, whose CEO is a conservative contributor in contrast to a significant competitor and Democratic fundraiser is suspicious. Is HHS Secretary Sebelius’s “someone lives and someone dies” previewing ObamaCare? The administration selects to not enforce laws according to their political interests. They profusely speak against profiling to identify terrorists, but excoriatingly defamate patriots. There is the unprecedented intrusive administration probe into the “free press” and appearance of manipulating the courts. The “Fast and Furious” fiasco remains unanswered. Secret email accounts. Alleged government agency political prejudice in business grant approvals to liberals while opposing conservatives. The IRS’s oppressive targeting of religious, conservative and pro-Israel individuals. Is this acceptable profiling? Is Israel abandoned? Obama Democrat’s best defense mantra is that they don’t know anything about anything! Remember Clint Eastwood’s famous “Empty Chair.”

Is Liberal Progressive Democratic Socialism on display? Numerous congressional leaders are Democratic Socialists of America members with others holding strategic positions of power. Are we electing America’s demise?

Using government’s power to intimidate, punish, suppress or eliminate opposing political speech and religious beliefs is diabolical. Who is being defined as enemies? Obama Democrat’s list of friends seems foreign and troubling.

Quoting Patrick Henry, “The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people; it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government lest it come to dominate our lives and interests.” “Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country and of an act of disloyalty towards the Majesty of Heaven which I revere above all things.”
