ROSE COLORED GLASSES AND STATE OF THE UNION
By Ron Edwards
January 15, 2016
Despite whatever President Obama said during his state of the union address, America the beautiful is broken. Obama’s state of the union speech reminded me of his 2004 Democrat convention oratory. His address was filled with socialist idealistic imagery, with attempts at igniting a passionate and mindless following by a misled and ill-informed sea of people willing to help him shove America over the cliff and unto the ash heap of history.
There were the typical political style utilization of numerous half-truths, hyperbole and non-sequiturs to make mostly non-existent and partisan points, while forging ahead with politics as usual. To sum it up, it was a speech that became the hallmark of Barack Hussein Obama’s progressive political career. There are some who believe he has retreated to his anti-American roots as a community organizer.
President Obama’s final presidential state of the union address provided a huge supply of sop to his far left anti-liberty political base. It was also creatively molded to seem like a motivational speech of encouragement to a nation that in reality he disdains. I am sure that Mr. Obama hoped that his speech would hoodwink Americans into believing his presidency to be one of optimism, humanism, statesmanship and bi-partisan outreach. Sure, if one is ignorant and totally void of understanding, Obama achieved that goal. Taken in a vacuum, Obama’s speech probably secured that goal.
However, as time will reveal, it may quite likely be as ineffectual as using one of the “first black president” Bill Clinton’s state of the union speeches to characterize his presidency in isolation from Monica Lewinski. “We the People” of America must refuse to accept the dregs of political leadership and raise our expectations.
Perhaps Americans should take a remedial course on civics, the constitutionally mandated role government and elected officials, including the president. It has been said that knowledge is power. As long as the people of America are either indoctrinated against the truth or simply not taught it in the first place, our rights will continue to be trampled away by big government. At the same time, our republic as a whole s diminished in stature, power and wealth.
If president Obama truly desired to bring about a healing of the wounds his seven years has inflicted upon our republic, he could have done so during his state of the union address. But rather, he remained on his long traveled path of promoting his doctrine of failed and wicked social, moral and political destruction. Unfortunately, over 40 percent of the American people agree with Obama along with millions of illegal immigrants, Obama is emboldened in his gruesome goal to fundamentally change America into a land of muck, mire and misery.
The United States of America was envisioned as a blessed republic of “We the People” where the government was to be a servant of the sovereign citizens of our nation. The government was also meant to be a mighty sword against evildoers and enemies of our republic, not a brutal beast of tyranny against law abiding sovereigns like you and I. My Dad used to tell me that our nation and the government are both a reflection of the people of America. Right now that is not a pretty picture ethically, morally, spiritually, or economically.
Throughout the duration of the president’s fifty nine minute state of the union speech he told half-truths and outright lies as well. One major fib was his description of ISIS enemies as people riding around on pickup trucks and that they are not a threat to America’s existence. The fact that he could say that with a straight face is jaw dropping. Mr. Obama either forgot or chose not to mention that many murdering ISIS terrorists are cruising around in well fortified armored vehicles left behind by United States forces. The Muslim ISIS are also heavily armed and with firearms and are plundering all whom they encounter, especially Black Africans and Christians.
I find it very interesting and telling how the president took people to task for daring to complain about or promote standing up to Muslims, who have come into America with a stated mission to change her. But not once during Obama’s state of the union speech did he address the horrendous treatment of Christians or the millions of Black Africans who exist under the boot heel of Muslim abuse and humiliation. Dear reader, it is put up or shut up time for us. The status quo no longer has the ability to maintain or more importantly contain the forces of evil that are continuing to unite and attempt to beat America into submission to the will of enemies, both foreign and domestic.
Despite the fact that our nation’s standard of living is now lower than any time since the Korean War, or that the military is not the powerhouse it still was, even under the George W. Bush administration, or that the government schools are aiding our enemies by indoctrinating students against America and all that is good etc. etc. it is not yet over for our great republic. All we have to do is seek providential guidance, reestablish real education and God’s forgiveness for allowing the destruction being heaped upon this country. Then establish and stick to the political will to conduct the nation’s business in a manner that benefits our republics best interest. Will it be difficult? Absolutely, but more importantly it will be well worth the effort.
God Bless You, God Bless America and May America Bess God.
