What if he's right?

   
I hope you find the time to read this with an open mind. It's interesting.  Please read
it with the open mind rather than immediately breaking it down into left or
right, but rather look at it from the neutral viewpoint of right or wrong.  It's
like the line below says, "what if he is right?"
 
 
 
 
    
Take the three minutes to read this. Maybe he is wrong, but what if he’s right?

History Unfolding

I am a student of history. Professionally, I have written 15 books on history that have been
published in six languages, and I have studied history all my life. I have come
to think there is something monumentally large afoot, and I do not believe it is
simply a banking crisis, or a mortgage crisis, or a credit crisis. Yes these
exist, but they are merely single facets on a very large gemstone that is only
now coming into a sharper focus..
 
Something of historic proportions is happening. I can sense it because I know how it feels, smells, what it looks
like, and how people react to it. Yes, a perfect storm may be brewing, but there
is something happening within our country that has been evolving for about ten
to fifteen years. The pace has dramatically quickened in the past
two.
 
We demand and then codify into law the requirement that our banks make massive loans to people we know they can never pay back? Why?
 
We learned just days ago that the Federal Reserve, which has little or no real
oversight by anyone, has "loaned" two trillion dollars (that is
$2,000,000,000,000) over the past few months, but will not tell us to whom or
why or disclose the terms. That is our money. Yours and mine. And that is three
times the $700 billion we all argued about so strenuously just this past
September. Who has this money? Why do they have it? Why are the terms
unavailable to us? Who asked for it? Who authorized it? I thought this was a
government of "we the people," who loaned our powers to our elected leaders.
Apparently not.
 
We have spent two or more decades intentionally de-industrializing our economy... Why?
 
We have intentionally dumbed down our schools, ignored our history, and no longer teach our founding documents,
why we are exceptional, and why we are worth preserving. Students by and large
cannot write, think critically, read, or articulate. Parents are not revolting,
teachers are not picketing, school boards continue to back mediocrity.
Why?
 
We have now established the precedent of protesting every close election (violently in California over a proposition that is so controversial
that it simply wants marriage to remain defined as between one man and one
woman. Did you ever think such a thing possible just a decade ago?) We have
corrupted our sacred political process by allowing unelected judges to write
laws that radically change our way of life, and then mainstream Marxist groups
like ACORN and others to turn our voting system into a banana republic. To what
purpose?
 
 Now our mortgage industry is collapsing, housing prices are in free fall, major industries are failing, our banking system is on the verge of
collapse, social security is nearly bankrupt, as is Medicare and our entire
government. Our education system is worse than a joke (I teach college and I
know precisely what I am talking about) - the list is staggering in its length,
breadth, and depth.. It is potentially 1929 x  ten...And we are at war with an
enemy we cannot even name for fear of offending people of the same religion,
who, in turn, cannot wait to slit the throats of your children if they have the
opportunity to do so.
 
And finally, we have elected a man that no one really knows anything about, who has never run so much as a Dairy Queen, let
alone a town as big as Wasilla , Alaska .. All of his associations and alliances
are with real radicals in their chosen fields of employment, and everything we
learn about him, drip by drip, is unsettling if not downright scary (Surely you
have heard him speak about his idea to create and fund a mandatory civilian
defense force stronger than our military for use inside our borders? No? Oh, of
course. The media would never play that for you over and over and then demand he
answer it. Sarah Palin's pregnant daughter and $150,000 wardrobe are more
important.)
 
Mr. Obama's winning platform can be boiled down to one word: Change. Why?
 
I have never been so afraid for my country and for my children as I am now.
 
This man campaigned on bringing people together, something he has never, ever done in his professional life. In my assessment,
Obama will divide us along philosophical lines, push us apart, and then try to
realign the pieces into a new and different power structure. Change is indeed
coming. And when it comes, you will never see the same nation again.
 
And that is only the beginning..
 
As a serious student of history, I thought I would never come to experience what the ordinary, moral German must have felt in
the mid-1930s In those times, the "savior" was a former smooth-talking
rabble-rouser from the streets, about whom the average German knew next to
nothing. What they should have known was that he was associated with groups that
shouted, shoved, and pushed around people with whom they disagreed; he edged his
way onto the political stage through great oratory. Conservative "losers" read
it right now.
 
And there were the promises. Economic times were tough, people were losing jobs, and he was a great speaker. And he smiled and frowned
and waved a lot. And people, even newspapers, were afraid to speak out for fear
that his "brown shirts" would bully and beat them into submission. Which they
did - regularly. And then, he was duly elected to office, while a full-throttled
economic crisis bloomed at hand - the Great Depression. Slowly, but surely he
seized the controls of government power, person by person, department by
department, bureaucracy by bureaucracy. The children of German citizens were at
first, encouraged to join a Youth Movement in his name where they were taught
exactly what to think. Later, they were required to do so. No Jews of course,
 
 
How did he get people on his side? He did it by promising jobs to the jobless, money to the money-less, and rewards for the military-industrial
complex. He did it by indoctrinating the children, advocating gun control,
health care for all, better wages, better jobs, and promising to re-instill
pride once again in the country, across Europe , and across the world. He did it
with a compliant media - did you know that? And he did this all in the name of
justice and .... . ... change. And the people surely got what they voted
for.
 
If you think I am exaggerating, look it up. It's all there in the history books.
 
So read your history books. Many people of conscience objected in 1933 and were shouted down, called names, laughed at, and ridiculed.
When Winston Churchill pointed out the obvious in the late 1930s while seated in
the House of Lords in England (he was not yet Prime Minister), he was booed into
his seat and called a crazy troublemaker. He was right, though. And the world
came to regret that he was not listened to.
 
Do not forget that Germany was the most educated, the most cultured country in Europe . It was full of
music, art, museums, hospitals, laboratories, and universities. And yet,
in less than six years (a shorter time span than just two terms of the U.
S. presidency) it was rounding up its own citizens, killing others, abrogating
its laws, turning children against parents, and neighbors against neighbors..
All with the best of intentions, of course.. The road to Hell is paved with
them.
 
As a practical thinker, one not overly prone to emotional decisions, I have a choice: I can either believe what the objective pieces of
evidence tell me (even if they make me cringe with disgust); I can believe what
history is shouting to me from across the chasm of seven decades; or I can hope
I am wrong by closing my eyes, having another latte, and ignoring what is
transpiring around me..
 
I choose to believe the evidence. No doubt some people will scoff at me, others laugh, or think I am foolish, naive, or both. To
some degree, perhaps I am. But I have never been afraid to look people in the
eye and tell them exactly what I believe-and why I believe
it.
 
I pray I am wrong. I do not think I am. Perhaps the only hope is our vote in the next
elections.
