Homefront,

Thanks for your reply. Indeed, I have watched everything by Evan Sayet already and try to keep an eye open for his possible appearances in my area...

Yes, liberalism will eventually die out, at least the communist inspired faction of it. I really do not understand how these folks can espouse the same marxist mantras while completely ignoring the horrific regimes of the surviving communist regimes in the world (N.Korea, China, etc). How can they be so selective? I am really trying hard to understand.

As for an Obama presidency- Perish The Thought! I agree that the benefit would be that a democrat would not be elected for many terms thereafter, and that the victim cries of racism from the black politicians would be shut up (that is one reason to suspect that they themselves would derail his presidency- they would not want to lose their stature of victimhood and power in the democrat party), but the cost during his presidency is too great.

The world is watching, and all enemy regimes and ideologies would be emboldened by his weakness and naivite. Look already how the democrats are undermining our policies and conveying the message that the US is not unified and is weak. Iran is months away from going nuclear. These are important times, America as a superpower is losing ground, being eaten from within, and I dread a time when another superpower takes over (China anyone?). The world should be thankful, and not take for granted, that the current superpower espouses democracy, freedom and human rights. If that changes, I hate to think of what might happen, and even more scary, the process by which the defeat will be administered.

All empires have fallen, but I never imagined that the USA would meet the same fate. More fool am I.

Best,

sara
