Because He Is Right

Related Link » Dismantling America
“Barack Obama has not only said that he is out to "change the United States of America," the people he has been associated with for years [people like Jeremiah Wright and Bill Ayers] have expressed in words and deeds their hostility to the values, the principles and the people of this country. [...] Among the people appointed as czars by President Obama have been people who have praised enemy dictators like Mao, who have seen the public schools as places to promote sexual practices contrary to the values of most Americans, to a captive audience of children. Those who say that the Obama administration should have investigated those people more thoroughly before appointing them are missing the point completely. Why should we assume that Barack Obama didn't know what such people were like, when he has been associating with precisely these kinds of people for decades before he reached the White House? [...] Nothing so epitomizes President Obama's own contempt for American values and traditions like trying to ram two bills through Congress in his first year — each bill more than a thousand pages long — too fast for either of them to be read, much less discussed. [...] Whether enough people will wake up in time to keep America from being dismantled, piece by piece, is another question — and the biggest question for this generation.” [emphasis added]

“Thomas Sowell is an American economist, social commentator, and author of dozens of books. He often writes from an economically laissez-faire perspective. He is currently a senior fellow of the Hoover Institution at Stanford University. In 1990, he won the Francis Boyer Award, presented by the American Enterprise Institute. In 2002 he was awarded the National Humanities Medal for prolific scholarship melding history, economics, and political science. In 2003, he was awarded the Bradley Prize for intellectual achievement. Sowell was born in North Carolina to an African-American family.”

I agree with Thomas Sowell — not because he is an eminent scholar; not because he has written dozens of books (a couple of which I have read); not because he is a multiple-award-winning intellect in multiple academic disciplines; not even because he is an African-American, and thereby shields me from false accusations of racially motivated criticism of President Obama's agenda.

I agree with Thomas Sowell because he is right.
