The Destroyer of Hope

The empty suit of dopey hope on an empty chair of broken promises.

“As he spells out in his book, [Obama] actively sought out [far left] people. There is no hint of the slightest curiosity on his part about other visions of the world that might be weighed against the vision he had seized upon. […] This would be a remarkable position to take, even for a learned scholar who had already spent decades canvassing a vast amount of information and views on many subjects. But Obama was already doctrinaire at a very early age -- and ill-informed or misinformed on both history and economics. His statement in "Dreams from My Father" about how white men went to Africa to "drag away the conquered in chains" betrays his ignorance of African history. […] There was no reason why Barack Obama had to know this. But there was also no reason for him to be shooting off his mouth without knowing what he was talking about. […] Europeans enslaved other Europeans for centuries before the first African was brought in bondage to the Western Hemisphere. The very word "slave" is derived from the name of a European people once widely held in bondage, the Slavs. […] This fear of European "exploitation" prevailed widely in the Third World in the middle of the 20th century. But, by the late 20th century, the falseness of that view had been demonstrated so plainly and so often, in countries around the world, that even socialist and communist governments began opening their economies to foreign investments. This often led to rising economic growth rates that lifted millions of people out of poverty. Barack Obama is one of those people who are often wrong but never in doubt. […] But confident ignorance is one of the most dangerous qualities in a leader of a nation. If he has the rhetorical skills to inspire the same confidence in himself by others, then you have the ingredients for national disaster.”

“We know how to save the Union. The world knows we do know how to save it. We -- even we here -- hold the power, and bear the responsibility. In giving freedom to the slave, we assure freedom to the free -- honorable alike in what we give, and what we preserve. We shall nobly save, or meanly lose, the last best hope of earth. Other means may succeed; this could not fail. The way is plain, peaceful, generous, just -- a way which, if followed, the world will forever applaud, and God must forever bless.” [emphasis added]
— Abraham Lincoln, Annual Message to Congress -- Concluding Remarks, Washington, D.C., December 1, 1862
As Abraham Lincoln was the noble savior of "the last best hope of earth", namely our Union, so is Barack Obama hope's meanest destroyer. Therein lies, in a nutshell, the strongest and, I may add, the most ironic case against Obama's re-election. The great irony is that, whereas Obama presumes to be the second coming of Abraham Lincoln, he is in fact the personification of the anti-Lincoln.

The Presidential election of 2012 is the most important for the survival of our Union, as we know it, since the two elections that Lincoln won. It is not about whose policy on abortion, taxes, foreign affairs, energy utilization, or any of the myriad other policies that are argued about ad nauseam during most Presidential election campaigns. This election is one of historic proportions. It is about the core issue that every American must give his allegiance to — the American way of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

If we, the American electorate, allow our petty little biases to sway our votes this November, ignoring the impending disaster that Obama has done his best to bring about, we will meanly lose that, for which Abraham Lincoln and 625,000 honored dead gave their last full measure of devotion — that that Nation might live.

I don't care if Obama is an evil man or a good man who doesn't know shit from Shinola. Nor do I really care what motivates him and his fanatical supporters. And you shouldn't either. The only thing that matters is that he doesn't get another term to complete his destruction of the last best hope of earth.
