America Commits Suicide
cns ^ | November 7, 2012 | Alan Caruba

Posted on 11/07/2012 7:18:17 AM PST by george76

Why did the majority of voters not understand the fearful implications of the erosion of the nation’s military power, not knowing that peace can only be maintained by a navy that keeps the sea lanes open, the marines who are skilled at making a quick entry into a battle zone, the army that can subdue an enemy, and an air force that has no comparison? The active military and veterans understood what their Commander-in-Chief was doing to them, but the lies about the Benghazi attack that killed a U.S. ambassador and three others were ignored.

Those who voted for Obama were content to believe the cascade of lies Obama told. They ignored the President’s record of failure

...

In 1887 Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history professor at the University of Edinburgh, had this to say about the fall of the Athenian Republic some 2,000 years prior:

"A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse over loose fiscal policy, (which is) always followed by a dictatorship."

John Adams, Founding Father and the nation’s second President warned: "Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide."

America has passed the point of no return. When I saw the dancing children in the street who had no idea what they voted for or why, I knew it was time to take stock in my family's future and make a plan for where and how to live.

I feel so bad for my grand sons...

“America Commits Suicide”

My thoughts exactly. The final death throws will be exceedingly horrific...

At least half the population is about as ignorant as expected and they just confirmed Alexander Tyler’s predictions which are destined to come full circle. When Romney stated that at least 47% of the public could not be counted on, he was dead right!

Romney was not the only one who lost as it also was all those who gave their Lives and Blood in vein to make this country what it has been. All it took was one with the gift of gab to take down the American Dream. Bin Laden would be pleased to have some one on the inside who will finish what he started. Too bad what could have been!

They are sheep or lemmings having been dumbed downed for years by the MSM and stupid reality shows!

There are forces at work in the background who have wanted to rule for years.

They are billionaires who need POWER over people b/c they have no other goal to attain!

Go Galt!!!!

The saddest part is that those who voted for Barry Benghazi do not grasp the significance now, nor will they when America is in her death throes.

“I watched as the Lamb opened the first of the seven seals. Then I heard one of the four living creatures say in a voice like thunder, “Come and see!” I looked, and there before me was a white horse! Its rider held a bow, and he was given a crown, and he rode out as a conqueror bent on conquest.”

Yeah, it’s sad that my two daughters are going to grow up in this country.

“Those who voted for Obama were content to believe the cascade of lies Obama told. They ignored the President’s record of failure”

And that’s the bottomline to it all.

Why did half the military, as reported, vote for Obama?

Many people, predominately the liberal-educated, are ignorant idealists; they relate to Miss America’s desire for peace and world harmony, but are too stupid to recognize that the peace our nation enjoys and spreads throughout the world comes from its military strength.

Trying to sort out my feelings this morning, I had a flashback to a car accident about 8 years ago. Driving along and minding my own business, a car left-turned right in front of me. CRASH/BANG!! Luckily, no one hurt but I remember being dazed and thinking “Whoa! What just happened?”

In the end we wound up with another John McCain. I had convinced myself he would be different but he gave us another half ass attempt when he refused to get down and dirty. At least Newt would have gone down blazing!!!

There are 2-3M dead people registered to vote.
Military did not get their votes counted.
How many illegal aliens are there that voted.
The kids found the keys to the treasury at the polls but unfortunately no one told them they gave away their future.
The total debt for the usa is almost $150T.

We still control the HOUSE but not the SENATE. Be prepared for Obama to rule by decree.

Neither one of the candidates was a Christian in any sense: Obama is a wishy-washy muslim through and through, and Romney is a Mormon who believes that God (Jesus) is the brother of Lucifer and is only one of hundreds of thousands of gods in the universe. So, no Christians were on the ballot.

Romney is now and always was a devout democrat, espousing all of their beliefs in homosexuality, abortion (rape, incest, and health of mommy were nothing more than 100% abortion on demand . . . we already have that, Mitt), government intrusion into the private sector (federal or state required health care . . . what’s the difference?).

Once again, I had to hold my nose tightly to vote for Romney just like I did for Dole, and just like I did for McLame.

I have participated in this charade too many times to be snookered again. Our society is now a godless and disgusting gaggle of pro-homosexuality and perversion at its lowest. I personally cannot fault the Evangelicals for refusing to partake in this godless experiment in government. God bless them for showing backbone. There was no biblical Christianity on either side of the ballot.

I will never again give my support to what’s left of the Republican Party in any way. We voted in a strong bunch of Tea Party conservatives in 2010 who were instantly muzzled, silenced, and made impotent by the RINO John Boehner.

Sorry, but until another party of some substance shows up, I will not vote again in any national election.
