Having witnessed and participated in all national elections since 1962, I am familiar with half lies and mud-slinging in politics, but I have never before witnessed such blatant lies, propaganda, and downright fraud as practiced by the Democratic operatives for the election of Obama. It is intensely disturbing that uninformed voters with a strong bent toward free handouts and devoid of a basic understanding of liberty are now in control and will likely remain so in the future.
We think we have free speech and hope to influence others, but our individual speech is but a teaspoon in a vast media ocean fed by rivers of bias. The sad fact is that we live in a world of the “bull networks” where bias and propaganda are obvious and truth is a rare commodity — you know, Complete Bull, National Bull, and Nothing but Bull. We even have our own Propaganda Broadcasting System paid for by us. The grave danger is not that individuals in the media are biased, but that they have a vast, unbridled voice to cast propaganda far beyond our own paltry speech.
Abraham Lincoln said “America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.” I fear that we have faltered. I worry less about what Obama will do than the harm that will be, and has been, done by the uninformed voting population and politicians who wish to feed at the trough of government.
All of this makes me wonder where the distinct groups who supported Obama will stand in the second American Revolution. The price of liberty is not cheap. I grieve for our children and grandchildren.
