When we compare the voice of Conservative reason with the voices of the Progressive Left, the experience can be a dramatic and life-changing experience. The political divisions that now exist in the United States of America are among the most dramatic in our nation’s history.
The tyranny of Socialist evil has descended like a heavy weight on the heart and spirit of our nation. Racial hatred is encouraged, hard work and prosperity are demonized, American Exceptionalism is ridiculed and treated as a curse upon our nation, trillions of taxpayer dollars are diverted to unions and other supporters of the Progressive Left, and laziness and non productivity are encourage and heavily subsidized. Thomas Jefferson warned us,
“To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.”
George F. Will wrote,
“Today, as it has been for a century, American politics is an argument between two Princetonians – James Madison, Class of 1771, and Woodrow Wilson, Class of 1879. Madison was the most profound thinker among the Founders. Wilson, avatar of ‘progressivism,’ was the first president critical of the nation's founding. Barack Obama's Wilsonian agenda reflects its namesake's rejection of limited government.”
The differing views of our Constitution during the 20th Century are clearly shown by the comments of Presidents Wilson, Reagan, and Clinton. President Woodrow Wilson said,
“The American Constitution is little more than ‘political witchcraft’ from the past, and ought to be discarded so that we can get on with the Progressive project of building a ‘national state.’”
President Ronald Reagan understood the intent of our original Constitution. He concisely let it be known,
“Our Constitution is a document that protects the people from government.”
President Clinton was of the opinion that the Constitutional rights of We the People got in the way of his plans to rule,
"If the personal freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution inhibit the government's ability to govern the people, we should look to limit those guarantees."
President Barack Obama has a Radical Far Left political ideology. Obama appears to be intent on quickly transforming the United States from a representative Republic into a Socialist Democracy and beyond. Like Presidents Wilson and Clinton, Obama has a distinct distaste for our Constitution because it inhibits his desire for a rapid transition of the very foundations of our government.
Barack Obama said during a 2001 Chicago Public Radio interview,
“ . . . the Warren Court, it wasn’t that radical. It didn’t break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the founding fathers in the Constitution.”
“ . . . generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties. It says what the states can’t do to you. Says what the Federal government can’t do to you, but doesn’t say what the Federal government or State government must do on your behalf.”
Our Constitution protects us from Barack Obama and his fellow Progressive Socialists. Obama does not like that.
This is again a time when great courage is needed. We the People must have the courage to kick the Progressive Left out of power in November and then drastically reduce the size of our government. If we do not, or if we fail, we shall surely become the vassals and slaves of unkind tyrants.
