The Old Alarmist Says…first, let’s understand that if you’re reading this, you’re going to be on one side of the fence or the other. My side of the fence is conservative, with a desire for smaller government, smarter administrations and a stronger America. The other side of the fence wants bigger government, more regulations and more political correctness. At some point, and it’s apparent that we’re close to it, there will be more people on government handouts than are working to support them.
So, decide where you are and then we can proceed because if you’re on the other side of the fence this is where you should stop reading and delete this and never come back to me on e-mail. Or, perhaps you’re one of the few that thinks for themselves and looks for indicators in what is being said or printed. Kudos to you, if you are.
I believe…that the current occupant of the White House is a clinically delusional madman…that he is following an agenda straight out of Saul Alinsky’s Rules For Radicals, along with the Cloward and Piven strategies, both of which aim for the destruction of the United States even though it’s couched in politically correct language.
At a time when our potential enemies, China and Russia, are building up their militaries, our delusional leader is decimating ours. We are still borrowing money, which many experts say can never be repaid, and handing it out to almost anyone, or anything, without much chance of getting any sort of repayment to us. That is plainly fiscal irresponsibility.
Based on books that I’ve read over the past five years, doing research for the radio show, it is plain to see that this country is being degraded and destroyed systematically. Succeeding generations are being dumbed-down, there doesn’t seem to be much difference between the two political parties when you examine what they do when they are the “in” group. My affiliation, for the present, is Republican, but could we use a third party? I think we could.
If you write you will get an answer. The problem is that the answer you get may not be the answer you expected or wanted. Write me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
From time to time, if you’re a newcomer to my column, you will read opinions that may strike you as very near treasonous, and that’s fine…so long as you are reading, you’re thinking, and if you’re thinking you might just come up with a solution to the nation’s many problems…it doesn’t seem as though Congress has come up with any regardless of which party is in power. Speaking of Congress, Paul Ryan, the new Speaker of the House of Representatives apparently underwent a surgical procedure when he assumed the gavel. Disappeared was his spine, testicles and brain, and in place of them the administration put a rubber stamp. What a disappointment he has been.
Perhaps, if the Republicans can stop sniping at each other, and actually try to win the presidential election, we might get someone in there (and I favor Trump right now) who will reverse the downward spiral that this country is in. He appears to have done well in business and it’s always been my theory that government should be run like a business. If it had been, this government would have been OUT of business about 50 years ago, given the debts that they’ve racked up and the apparent inability to pay them off. Experts, far and away much smarter than I, have said that there doesn’t seem to be any way to pay off the huge debt that we have now. What makes it even more insane is that we take some of that money that we’ve borrowed and we GIVE it away to other countries…some of whom hate us and all of whom have no intention of ever paying us back.
Some of us, and I admit I’m one, yearn for “the old days”. They weren’t necessarily all that good, but at least you knew where you stood as an American. You knew who our enemies were and you knew that our armed forces were going to take care of those enemies. Now we have an administration with potential enemies in places where they should not be. Our chief spy, John Brennan, is a Muslim. Our Muslim-in-chief is importing other Muslims by the thousands because, eventually, they will get green cards or even citizenship and they will vote for the party that brought them in and gave them everything. Our armed forces are being decimated, used as social experiments and the combination of the two looks to me to be a set-up for an easy take-over by some potential enemy…translation: China, Russia, Iran, etc., you can add whatever other country you think might fit in there.
I mentioned a 3rd party as a potential entity and I think it could work. A strong leader, with a sound fiscal, governmental, and military, platform, could bring some semblance of order to the country. Where is it written that there can only be two major political parties? Frankly, I’m underwhelmed when their records are looked at. The party-in-power spends much of its time lambasting the other one, and looking for pork to bring home so they can get re-elected, and that’s not what they were sent to do.
Wake up, America…your country needs you…desperately!
