This Week’s Liberal-Progressive Trifecta Wins

-
Romney on the campaign trail in Salem Va. said US can restore greatness. Perhaps he was reflecting upon Tom Brokaw’s book about the WW2 American people as “The Greatest Generation”. Perhaps he was flashing back to Reagan’s “Shining City on The Hill. However, current national and international events and this week’s big wins by the Liberal Progressives does not support this optimism for America’s future greatness, exceptionalism or world leadership. Perhaps we might reflect instead on a phrase by Alan Greenspan, the chairman of the Federal Reserve, about "irrational exuberance" and "excessive optimism".
-
We are being driven down the road to a European model of socialism and mediocrity and complacency. Can anyone name a major society that employed socialism to achieve exceptionalism and as one looks at Europe, is this the best we can do for our future generations?
-
The three big events this week were:
-
1) Three Federal judges concluded that since the voters had installed a Democrat Congress and a Democrat President that are using the federal government’s EPA to totally control the country’s energy systems by banning CO2, a major byproduct of utilities burning fossil fuels, therefore it’s OK with them. After all the issue isn’t weather or not CO2 causes global warming, the issue is that the American people have voted for those who are implementing these programs. At any rate the judges and the EPA have no responsibility, accountability or liability for American jobs, global warming, energy prices or its availability. If the American people voted for this path – then it’s OK with the judges and the law.  Interesting Question: do the American people know what they voted for?
-
2) The Supreme Court ruled that it’s OK for the federal government to not enforce federal laws governing the 12 million illegal immigrants who have occupied this country and it’s not OK for any states to impede these immigrants from causing major negative and adverse impacts upon the legal residents of the states or to try to supplement the federal governments enforcement of the national laws. Obama, who has decided not to enforce these federal laws,  quickly jumped upon that big win to stop Arizona from receiving data from the federal government that identifies known illegal immigrants.
-
3) The US military held major public events enhancing and embracing the status and stature of homosexuals in the armed forces and thereby embracing their sexual behaviors.
-
-
In addition to these major liberal progressive achievements the Obama administration has decided not to enforce or defend the federal law entitled “The defense of marriage act” that embraces the concept that marriage is a one man one women relationship.
-
Obama has also decided to throw a cloak of secrecy over the FastAndFurious illegal gun running investigation by exerting “executive privilege” to ensure that the public remains in the dark about the extent of the administrations’ malfeasance and cover-up.
-
-
Perhaps we have reached a “tipping point”. Not with global warming but with a personal and institutional and governmental slide into mediocrity and dependency and diminished values. The American people have the ability to vote and therefore they can have a major influence in their future. Hopefully they will use their votes wisely for so many have paid a very dear price for this very special experiment called America. Our current path is clearly not leading to greatness and the standard of living and quality of life of our future generations will clearly not be in a sequel to Tom Brokaw’s book.  How sad!
