The bitter truth trilogy
The Perilous State of Affairs in Modern AmericaBy B. Reynolds Tuesday, September 14, 2010
As this writer contemplates the essential nature of the following three ancient adages: “ the truth will set you free “, “ the truth sometimes hurts “ and “ there are none so blind, as those who will not see “, you, as the reader, should be prepared to manifest some courage, open your eyes and start actively seeking your freedom. Unfortunately, as you pursue this true path of enlightenment, you should also be prepared to experience an exceptionally harsh, painful and bitter measure of truth and reality, that may literally shock your conscience.
Pray tell, what then is the bitter truth, with respect to the current and extraordinarily perilous state of political, social, cultural and spiritual affairs in America?
By way of an initial observation, I would confidently submit there are two real existential threats to America’s very survival: the emergence of the inaptly named and extremely toxic “ Progressive “ movement in America, as primarily personified in the form of the Democratic Party, and the rapid rise of radical Islam ( the latter of which is the subject of another essay ).
With respect to the former threat, I posit, without fear of any rational source of contradiction, that this contemporary version of the ( once proud ) Democratic Party, has now been rendered morally, ethically, philosophically and spiritually bankrupt by the left wing radical ideologues and statists who totally permeate its ranks. As a result of this obvious and exceedingly distressful fact, almost all of the Party’s current leaders have proven themselves to be virtually bereft of even a modicum of honor, dignity, integrity, wisdom and virtue.
To its eternal shame, the Democratic Party has now demonstrably and conclusively proven itself to be utterly incapable of effectively governing our nation and protecting its vital domestic and international interests and is currently leading us down the pathway to national suicide.
For you see, after decades of proudly and deviously undermining and subverting the Constitution, the rule of law and America’s singularly miraculous traditional values and mores, the Progressive left, together with its willing armies of devoted supplicants, formally declared war on the glories of traditional America on November 4, 2008 and won their first decisive battle on January 20, 2009. May these ignominious dates forever be proclaimed as two additional days of ( self-inflicted ) national infamy. Yet another such terrible day will be identified in Part 2.
It is indeed a sad and tragic reality that we have elected a golden calf named Obama, as President; a man who is, without question, the most divisive, arrogant, petty, malicious, vindictive, unprincipled and radicalized individual to ever occupy the office. He is a textbook example of a malignant narcissist, a man-child who could not possibly be more unworthy and unfit for the job. My fellow Americans, we have actually elected a President whose extremist background and unsavory lifetime of personal relationships, with a veritable rogue’s gallery of left wing radical friends, family members, mentors and other sinister acquaintances, would have automatically disqualified him from obtaining any form of federal security clearance; yes, this is the same woefully unqualified Commander in Chief, who now has unfettered access to all of our most critical top secret information and has his finger on the nuclear trigger.
Although the jury may still be out as to whether he is indeed the worst President in our nation’s history ( it’s an easy call from my perspective ), he is unquestionably the least exceptional man to ever occupy the highest elective office in this, the most exceptional nation in human history.
This President, now acting in concert with the undeniably loathsome Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, together with their mutual sycophants and comrades, located throughout the executive, legislative and judicial branches of our federal and state governments, comprise a truly noxious and dangerous team of individuals who represent either the most inept and incompetent, or the most mendacious, corrupt and treacherous group of elected and appointed leaders and officials in America’s history. Perhaps it would be more accurate to suggest they usually exhibit an unholy alliance of these pathological traits. In any event, they clearly embody the antithesis of the type of leaders envisioned by our Founding Fathers and they have already inflicted a devastating amount of damage on our once proud nation.
Under the most objective of qualitative standards, these sinister reprobates, embedded in their own model of a kakistocracy, have completely betrayed their oaths of office and totally abrogated their official duties and responsibilities to our nation. Their standards of conduct and performance in office, especially during the recent past, have consistently been light years beneath contempt and beyond shame. These unquestioned masters of the politics of deceit, perversion, projection, hypocrisy, class warfare and personal destruction, have become the human functional equivalent of weapons of mass destruction.
As a result of these irrefutable facts, America’s Democratic Party now represents nothing less that an uncontrolled societal, cultural and spiritual form of cancer that has rapidly spread throughout our body politic and has now metastasized onto America’s very soul. Our nation will surely and permanently slip into a dark abyss, unless this ultra lethal form of cancer is rapidly treated and cured.
Apparently, this terrible disease initially attacks its unfortunate victims by impairing their ability to separate truth from lies and reality from fantasy, then it rapidly diminishes its prey’s capacity to employ critical thinking skills and can ultimately destroy the afflicted party’s conscience and very soul, if left untreated. During this entire and incredibly corrosive process, its victims tend to turn away from God and become particularly vulnerable to the will of those Progressive forces or individuals who would call evil good and good evil and who would put darkness for light and light for darkness ( tip of the hat to the prophet Isaiah ).
Hence, with the overwhelming evidence of Democratic Party perfidy and treachery, staring us directly in the face, I submit that the only type of human being that could possibly continue to support these sick, twisted and immoral political leaders, has to fall under one or more of the following general categories: a person who is (a) terminally naïve, (b) fatally gullible, (c) willfully ignorant, (d) fully immersed in denial, (e) a willing participant in the inherently immoral Progressive movement, (f) devoid of wisdom, or (g) mentally ill. Amazingly, many of these same individuals may have originally been sincere and had good intentions ( somewhat analogous to that famous paving material used on the road to Hell ), in pursuing their totally misguided missions. Hence, tens of millions of such misguided Americans will only be able to start on their own pathway to recovery, when they can find the inner strength, courage and character to admit just how wrong they’ve been, in so many of their choices and decisions in life.
To anyone who may still have doubts about the merits or accuracy of my position, please consider the simple fact that virtually all of the failing cities, states and public school systems throughout our nation, share one common and extremely debilitating trait; they’re invariably trapped under the majority control of Democrats. Their pattern of malfeasance is inescapable.
If you’re still not convinced about the true nature and extent of the clear and present danger and threat posed by the Progressive movement in America, please take the following quiz, however, you must promise to answer the single hypothetical question honestly:
1. If every America hating individual on the face of our entire planet, was provided with a ballot and allowed to vote in any of our nation’s local, state and/or national elections and each of the ballots identified both a Democrat and a Republican candidate, which candidate would likely receive 99 % of their votes? ( Note: the missing 1 % of tabulated votes would represent the sum total of accidentally mismarked ballots ).
Obviously, no answer key is necessary concerning this question and one can only reach a particularly harsh, bitter and painful conclusion. Any American who votes directly for these odious Democratic Party political leaders or for any other individual, of any political persuasion, who directly or indirectly supports any of these same leaders, has effectively aligned themselves with the mortal enemies of every good and virtuous thing America represents. Hence, by voting in this manner, not only will you have engaged in one of the most reckless, irresponsible and self destructive actions in your life, but you will also be compelled to continue living a lie and will have inflicted an equally grievous amount of harm on your family and nation. At this critical juncture in U.S. history, I can only hope and pray that every American will finally be able to summon the strength, courage and conviction to restore their faith in God, reacquaint themselves with their own conscience and soul and start doing the right thing.
Take heart my fellow citizens, we’re just temporarily trapped in what seems to be an ongoing Twilight Zone episode, produced and directed ( on an uncredited basis ) by the Father of Lies; a truly obscene production that includes a huge ensemble cast, featuring a number of his favorite children, with whom he must be justifiably proud. If we are to escape this nightmare, we must first become penitent and then begin to restore the true promise of American exceptionalism and cure the cancer on our national soul, starting in the next and most crucial election in our nation’s history, by electing true conservatives. I can see November from my house, can you?
Parts 2 and 3 of the Bitter Truth Trilogy, “ How We Got Ourselves in This Perilous Position “ and “ Preventing National Suicide, Restoring the Republic and Avoiding Another Revolutionary War “ respectively, will be forthcoming prior to the next national election.
