When I argued that an Obama win would be better for conservatives than a Romney win, I got a lot of angry emails and comments from readers. “Worse IS NOT better!” they yelled.
Of course not. But that’s not what I was saying. I was making tw
o points: Romney’s embarrassing kowtowing before Netanyahu and the predominance of Neocons from the George W. Bush regime in his campaign all but guaranteed a “pre-emptive” war on Iran. And what have the Neocon Wars given us so far? The Department of Homeland Security, citizen surveillance, torture enhanced interrogation, indefinite detention, as well as increased Muslim immigration.
Bottom line: Another war would do even more permanent damage.
My other point was that an Obama win would make people realize what’s going on. While a Romney win would soothe conservatives to sleep, blissfully oblivious to what their masters in DC were really up to, an Obama win would force them to confront the ugly reality.
The sad truth is, we’ve been fed a steady diet of unreality – and we’ve scarfed it down, while asking for more. Consider:
- Iraq has weapons of mass destruction.
- It is the role of the United States to spread democracy and liberate the world.
- Israel is our greatest ally.
- Government must bypass the Bill of Rights to protect us.
And so on. We swallowed that nonsense, and look at the result.
So is there any hope? Absolutely. The real battle to preserve our traditional culture is still at the local level. While the central government has revealed itself as the enemy of the traditional majority, even going so far as to join Third-World nations in a lawsuit AGAINST the people of Arizona, the states remain what they were at the Founding, the most local, direct, and effective organizations promoting the best interests of their citizens.That fact was validated in yesteday’s elections. Not only are many Southern and Western states still fighting to enforce the immigration laws DC ignores, the people are taking stands directly opposing DC’s illegal policies. For example, Oklahoma banned “affirmative action.” And Colorado and Washington decriminalized marijuana, putting their state governments on a collision course with DC.While the Northeast and Left Coast abandon Western civilization through floodtide immigration and an unbending leftist agenda, the South and West stubbornly resist. That’s where the fight is being waged, and that is where we must concentrate – in our own backyards. As Dr. Michael Hill recently said, we now have an amazing opportunity to point out to our friends and neighbors just how hostile and alien DC is to our values and way of life. Let’s take advantage of it.
