The Boy Wonder’s recent presidential victory is not the sign of a sudden shift in American thought… it’s the result of decades of careful planning and manipulation by the left through the media, unions and our public education system. Judi McLeod, editor of the Canada Free Press, has penned a hum-dinger of an article detailing the rise of Socialism in the U.S. and Canada. Here’s an excerpt:
History is being rewritten before our very eyes by the Socialists of two nations.
Long after we’re all gone, what has happened in a short time-span before Christmas 2008 will surely give pause to the historians.
In more temperate times, the historians would be forgiven for mistaking the latest James Bond film Quantum of Solace detailing the work of a moviedom George Soros and Maurice Strong as art imitating real life.
But only in the movies and not in real life do dramatic things happen overnight.
In reality, what has happened here and in the United States was long in the making.
Gradually over time, we elected politicians who cared not for the ecosystem of country Constitutions in comparison to their power lust. Somehow we didn’t seem to notice when government no longer worked for us, but us for them.
The average person was kept too busy coming up with the rent or the mortgage, too busy wondering why their children were learning not reading, writing and arithmetic, but how to become effective global citizens.
Politicians elected each term, by and large, got worse and worse until we reached a stage where they came not with altruism and leadership guiding their moral compass, but with teams of lawyers who could trash constitutions no matter how noble or time-honoured.
Along the way, we one day reached the level where civic politicians got to be very high handed. Instead of us being able to tell them to return from federal and international issues to take out the garbage, they told us to take out the garbage, and to put it in an increasing assembly of recycling bins.
The only real “change” politicians made manifest is the one where they no longer choose to hide their true intentions. The rats in the farmers’ barns no longer dive for cover in the loft when the farmer comes in.
They stand there boldly ready to attack the farmer and anyone else who questions their self-imposed authority.
She’s exactly right. Who before Barack Obama could have gotten away with proudly trumpeting his desire to redistribute wealth? He’s cocky about it because he can be. The barriers that used to stand in the way are now broken or at least weakened to the point where he no longer feels the need to pretend.
