Immigres Understand Socialist Threat Of Obama
My friend is from Poland. She has been here fewer than ten years, and I value her insights. On Sunday, she made an observation I have heard other legal immigres make. But she said it with a twist.
She said, “Americans have no idea or understanding what they have. How can they be expected to have any idea or understanding of what is being systematically taken from them?” It was a profound observation that we discussed at length.
Her critique of America and those native to same is spot on. She spoke with disdain (that I share with her) of Americans not taking advantage of the great opportunities we have here. She an immigre, spoke of how the American people have abandoned the principles and legacies afforded us by our Founding Fathers. I cannot disagree with her. I digress to say I still remember the first time something like this was expressed to me. It was many years ago, and I was with a friend who is Persian. She said, “Americans are stupid, they don’t know what they have.” I remember being offended not just with her comments but with the matter of factness with which she made them. Over the years, I have come to realize not only what she meant but that what she said was sadly true in all too many instances, but as I said, “I digress.”[adsanity id=8405 align=alignleft /]My friend understands the threat Obama and his henchmen present for the American people. She lived the manifestation of that threat growing up under communist rule. She recognizes the threat of Obamacare, the government run public school system, and government dependence.
She speaks with an authority as one who lived under communism, who then came to America to become an American and to take advantage of the great opportunities available to us here. She sees it as nothing short of a betrayal to our Founding Fathers and what they strived to give us. She is appalled by the cavalier attitude with which so many Americans are unwitteningly freely surrendering our rights.
She argued that Americans have become too comfortable relying on the government not only for their subsistence but also to control every facet of their daily lives, not realizing they are doing so to their own detriment.
The truth is she is right. I have had any number of persons, who immigrated here to become Americans and enjoy a better life, tell me how America on a near daily basis is becoming exactly what they fled from, especially with Obama in office.
I submit we have been lulled into a false sense of security that what our Founding Fathers presented to us would always be there. We have failed to realize that our freedoms are not free and that we must be ever on guard for nefarious reprobates who would deceive us into believing that government is there to provide for us.
The bedrock of American exceptionalism is “In God We Trust” and as soon as we abrogated that belief relegating it to words on paper separated by the lie of church and state the die for our decline was cast. And, all of our great successes notwithstanding, we have been in a downward spiral since that time.[adsanity id=9292 align=alignleft /]My friend expressed raw outrage that people know more about what is happening in the lives of athletes, the Kardashians, JZ and Beyonce et al. than they do about the Constitution. She spoke of how men and women are abandoning their families and the very real threat that illegal aliens present to us. She has in the past expressed to me how disappointing it is to see people so undereducated when with minimal effort we can take advantage of so much. She spoke of the threat Obamacare poses because amongst other reasons it will encourage even more people to look to government for their well-being. She spoke of Obama’s selectively singling out for vilification certain of those who are financially successful.
It would behoove us to seek out persons who came here from socialist countries and ask them what their lives were like — we can learn a lot from them.
We as a people need to awaken to the very real threat that confronts us. Those who came here from other countries seeking freedom understand what’s at stake. It would be beneficial if more of us who were born here did as well.
