Letter: Must we repeat our mistakes ?

Must we repeat our mistakes?

Barack Hussein Obama’s new term has just begun and it appears that it will be even worse than the first. The currently proposed Cabinet appointees will continue to expand the number of ignoble advisers surrounding the grandest usurper of the Constitution in history. The press is allowing the impeachable offenses in the Libya fiasco to disappear, and our own legislators espouse supporting more investments (spending) to get the economy on track.

The rhetoric at recent town hall meetings appears to confirm that spending is a priority for the Senate. This is quite odd, since the Senate hasn’t passed a budget in four years and the credit card is already over its limit. Additionally, the Senate will support the President on gun control legislation, despite the fact that it swore to uphold the Constitution.

Falsehoods flow so readily from the liberals that virtually any agenda could be supported by those wishing to be subjugated. How sad that so many have failed to learn from history. They’ve forgotten the reason for the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.

Much of what is transpiring is a repeat of the last century. The mainstream media is being the propaganda whip for liberals; Pravda and Goebbels would be proud. As Adolf Hitler said, “All propaganda has to be popular and has to accommodate itself to the least intelligent of those whom it seeks to reach.”

Is it indeed too late for this country to embrace the voices of our founding fathers? From Franklin and Jefferson to Thomas Paine, the ideas were that a good citizen doesn’t always keep his mouth shut and questions of authority are paramount to defending liberty. As Thoreau said, “It is not just our right but our duty to point out the obvious when politicians are blind to it.”
