Is It Any Wonder?
By Tammy Derouin
Is it any wonder this country is in the shape that it’s in? The overwhelming amount of information that comes in daily is unbelievable. If only the press would report the real news. Information is vital to our survival and the press continues to bow to its master, aka, the president. We have the right to a free press. The government isn’t supposed to control our information. The founders felt so strongly about free speech, it became our First Amendment. The government is prohibited from interfering with religion, speech, the press; or the right to peaceably assemble and to petition the government with a grievance.
Religion, speech, and the right to assemble have taken many direct hits from the government. The press, with some exceptions, would rather do parlor tricks for a pat on the head. Have you seen the press conferences Obama holds? On those very rare occasions he holds one, there a joke. The press embarrassingly gushes over Obama. He is treated like a sacred artifact that must be handled with delicacy. He shouldn’t be having a love affair with the press. If the press isn’t irritating the president, they aren’t doing their job.
Our rights, our freedoms, are in peril of disappearing forever. Americans need to revisit a truly sacred artifact, The Constitution. The government has been encroaching on the rights of the people for a long time. The socialist movement has been chipping away our rights, every chance they get. Is it any wonder they have been so successful? They have concealed their true identity by wrapping themselves up in pretty little packages. The Progressive Caucus is one such example. Currently, there are 75 caucus members in Congress. They use the word “progressive” to make it sound positive. The progressive movement is a socialist movement. They believe in big government. They also believe that the government knows best. Obamacare is a huge example. The ability for the individual and their doctor to make the best possible decision will be turned over to a bureaucratic board. Your medical care will no longer be based on what’s best for you; it will be based on what’s best for the collective. Nancy Pelosi who left the Progressive Caucus once she was elected House Minority Leader stated, “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it.” Have we, as American’s lost our minds? Why do so many Americans buy this pile of poo? Is the package really that pretty? It doesn’t change what’s inside. They insulted our intelligence. Who in their right mind would gamble everything before the cards have even been dealt or viewed? When did Americans become so naive?
I visited the Progressive Caucus website. Their beliefs and their agenda are destructive to our country. If they succeed, The Constitution will be history. Many of their beliefs also tie in with UN Agenda 21. If you have never heard of Agenda 21, I strongly suggest you go to the UN website. This agenda will destroy our sovereign rights as a nation. This “Agenda” is an attempt to achieve total control of everything at the global level. Your liberty, your rights and freedoms will be gone. The Progressive Caucus states several items in their agenda that pave the way for UN Agenda 21. There are 75 members in Congress that are proud members of the Socialist Democrat Party of the United States. Is it any wonder?
One of the founding members of the Progressive Caucus, Bernie Sanders, has a long political career. He served as mayor of Burlington, Vermont, served eight terms in the House and is currently serving in the Senate. A reporter from the Washington Post asked him a very interesting question. “Are you now or have you ever been a socialist?” Back when McCarthy asked such a question, it was career ending if you had a hint of “red” in your background, now it’s acceptable. Sanders answered, “Yeah, I wouldn’t deny it. Not for one second. I’m a democratic socialist.”
Is it any wonder the United States is on a course for disaster? The president met with members of the Progressive Caucus, union leaders and leaders of progressive organizations to discuss the financial state of this nation. These are people and organizations that supported his campaign. Obama met with people that have a destructive agenda for America before he met with congressional leaders. He chose to meet with a people who share socialist and communist beliefs first. Is it any wonder?
“We can’t expect the American People to jump from Capitalism to Communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving them small doses of Socialism, until they awaken one day to find that they have Communism.”
