America The Last Best Hope

I wish that we could all make good points with out being snippy or what ever you call it. The point is well taken in spite of the nonsense.

The night we waved goodbye to America... our last best hope on Earth

"The swooning frenzy over the choice of Barack Obama as President of the United States must be one of the most absurd waves of self-deception and swirling fantasy ever to sweep through an advanced civilization. At least Mandela-worship – its nearest equivalent – is focused on a man who actually did something."

"They grasped the real significance of this moment. They knew it meant that America had finally switched sides in a global cultural war. Forget the Cold War, or even the Iraq War. The United States, having for the most part a deeply conservative people, had until now just about stood out against many of the mistakes which have ruined so much of the rest of the world.

Suspicious of welfare addiction, feeble justice and high taxes, totally committed to preserving its own national sovereignty, unabashedly Christian in a world part secular and part Muslim, suspicious of the Great Global Warming panic, it was unique.

These strengths had been fading for some time, mainly due to poorly controlled mass immigration and to the march of political correctness. They had also been weakened by the failure of America’s conservative party – the Republicans – to fight on the cultural and moral fronts. "
It is not conservatives or Republicans but all of us that should be suspicious. Not just suspicious but inquisitive and thoughtful on those matters and many others.
"And now the US, like Britain before it, has begun the long slow descent into the Third World. How sad. Where now is our last best hope on Earth?"
That is the real question. We as a people need to stop blaming our country for the worlds problems and realize the the U.S. is the main if not only obstacle to the world falling into darkness, a second Dark Age. Would USSR or any other Marxist regime made the advances they did with out fighting against a creative and productive free society? Those who will be left, Japan and some remnant of the eastern block, can not sustain those ideals in the face of the massive onslaught culturally, economically and even militarily.

Ace looks at it this way.
"Sometimes the rhetorical question, "Well, how bad could it be?" can only be answered by non-rhetorical experience."
I had hope we were better than that before the election. After I know he is right. My hope is that the answer is known before it is to late to turn back.
