One Small Voice. A Lot of Big Ideas. Let Freedom Ring!

Can America survive “a multitude of idiots”?

As the 2012 Presidential election rapidly approaches, I would like to share a quote from an article (translated into English) from the Prager Zeitung, a publication in the Czech Republic, dated 18 April 2011.

 “The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting an inexperienced man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America . Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama. It is less likely to survive a multitude of Idiots such as those who made him their president.”

Pardon me, but I do believe our slip is showing…around the world.

    Well, I am one American that is embarrassed to say Obama is our president. Friends here in Venezuela ask me how is possible that Americans elected this fool to be their president. I ask them how could Venezuelans elect Hugo Chavez. I am afraid the world is full of idiots.

      Well, at least you have a touche’ moment…to a point. Chavez doesn’t really get “elected” in the true sense of the word, does he? Are Venzualians really as stupid as Americans?

      DKL,#157,Margaret, whether soenome is a hawk or not is beside the point. Everybody wants the war in Iraq to end. The question is on what terms. I want victory. Obama wants defeat.Heh, you couldn’t take victory when it was handed to you in 2003. You had to stick around and mess things up. No, you don’t want victory. You want occupation. If things improve, you’ll argue that we should stay just so that things don’t get bad again. If things do not improve, you’ll argue that we should stay because things are bad and we should try to improve them. You don’t seem to realize that WE are the problem in Iraq. WE are the reason for the violence. If we leave, the violence leaves with us. But see, war supporters know this. They know that the violence goes wherever we go. So why bring the violence here? It doesn’t make sense to bring the violence home. Let’s take the violence to others. So, in the words of Thomas Friedman, you go around in Iraq, and later in Iran, because you can. Suck on this. you will say to them. Break that bubble of theirs. Because you can. Not because we should. Not because it is prudent, or a wise foreign policy, but because we want to flex those muscles of ours. After all, a weapon unused is a useless weapon. Silly ideology I tell you.

    I am still shaking my head in wonder that Obama is in office at all, much less on the 2012 ballot, when he has yet to prove he is even an American citizen. I honestly think America’s biggest problems are rigged elections and a threat of bodily harm to the families of our Congress and Senate members. Lou Dobbs was run out of town overnight as the result of henchmen driving by and shooting up his house to shut him up about illegal immigration and e-verify. There are a lot of powerful people lingering in the shadows that are really running the show. If the people would stand together and call them out into the open, by refusing to play their game, we could probably take our Nation back. We could start by demanding as a Nation, proof of citizenship from Obama. We should be demanding total audits of the Federal Reserve, and the breaking of ties with the UN, the CFR, the Tri-Lateral Commission, etc. I think the smartest thing the people of this Nation could really do is put Ron Paul in the White House, but that kind of hinges on those dirty elections. As long as dead people are allowed to vote, you can bet our elections will swing in the establishments favor. And Ron Paul would destroy the establishment, beginning with negating all illegal, UN-Constitutional Executive Orders (of which, there are a lot). I’m sure the rest of the world does think we are a Nation of Morons. Sometimes, I think so myself.

      We are indeed a nation of morons, well enough of them to drive the rest of us insane.Yes, a Ron Paul presidency would have been a 180 which is what America needs right now. But that is not to be. The best we can do right now is try to fill our congress and state houses with constitutional, freedom-loving patriots, if a few thousand of those can be found. Romney will simply slow the train, but not enough to avoid the wreck. While I believe he’s big government, he is a lot less so than Obama. I also believe he’ll get the job done on the economy and that he is a man of good character.
      As the quote above attests, we need to work on ourselves so that good leaders will be elected.

        I’m curious to see how the Delegate issue plays out, and have not given up hope that Dr. Paul will not only go to Tampa, but will be heard in the public forum while he is there (if the GOP doesn’t pull a NEVADA 2008 stunt and quit their own Convention … what a sorry bunch of losers).

        Let us not forget that like Obama, Romney is a member of the CFR (whose agenda is the NWO) and who would admittedly condone the NDAA, as Obama did. That does not give me any hope that either man will honor a vow to uphold and protect our Constitution. Granted we need replacements for our current leaders throughout the branches of our entire Government, but I seriously don’t think the people understand that Ron Paul is the only Presidential Candidate that would actually take massive steps toward resurrecting our Constitution within his first few days in office. For starters, all of Obama’s Czars would be standing on the unemployment line, and then a whole lot of illegal executive orders would be struck down. The TSA could kiss its ass goodbye as well. Dr. Paul is on the side of the people. I don’t think Romney has a clue as to what it is like to be a struggling citizen. He is a typical establishment puppet from what I’ve seen of him.

        I think the Clintons (and perhaps most of their team) are evil, but are comeptent at running things in government. They’ve done it before. It’s not just Hillary that we’d be electing, it’s her whole team, which I assume is going to be pretty much like the team Bill had running things.I think Obama is more well-meaning, perhaps more altruistic, but he and his team will be incompetent at running things.I am reminded that it can often be better if congress passes no new laws. That deadlock in government is usually a _good thing_. It can be better to do nothing than to do something that screws things up more.The questions then becomes: Do I want someone in office who I believe will be comeptent at implementing the very things I don’t want, such as socialism and statism? Or do I want an incompetent idealistic demagogue (perhaps a little like Jimmy Carter) in the white house? As a country, we seem to have collectively lost our memory about the Carter years and the Clinton years. Maybe four years of a disastrous Obama administration will bring this country back to its senses.However, if national defense is the number one priority, subsuming all others, I’d have to give the hat-tip to Hillary. She’s not as deluded about international terrorism as Obama is.

    One step at a time. We all need to start by deprogramming the people closest to us, our families. Whatever we do, we need to stop letting the government “educate” us.

      You’re right, Tom. It is said that the average person has an influence sphere of 250 people. For every person we influence, they, in turn can influence 250 more. When you look at it in those terms, spreading common sense shouldn’t be that hard.

    Absolutely true! How many people do you come in contact now who won’t be voting for Obama this time around, but put him in office to begin with? Why did they elect him? I keep hearing the mantra that “he had no record.” That’s bull feathers! It was there for anyone interested in digging into this community organizer’s history. Heck….all you had to do was read his autobiography (with the “composite” girlfriend) to see what this fraud was all about.

    Um, wow. All I can say is “amen” to that quote. How did you find it? The ignorant voters have always scared me more than the ignorant boobs they elect, Barack Obama included. What’s even more scary is when I get to know someone and only later realize he or she is one of “them,” a blindly loyal Obama believer. What do you say to them? How do you bridge that gap?

    More and more, I am realizing that this is a cultural battle, not a political one. Just as Breitbart said. I am trying my best to influence all 250 folks within my reach, ha, but at the very least I know my kids are listening. Heck, my 4th grader can already spot environmental propaganda from a mile away.

      You are doing the most important influencing in the world–your children. If we leave it up to society and the public school system to frame our chidren’s point-of-view, they will all wind up socialist minions. As far as “how to bridge the gap” with those woefully uninformed, just keep at it. I’ve seen people turn around. I’ve also seen folks dig their feet in. I used to shy away from discussing politics with close friends or family members that lean left to avoid conflict. But I’m not shy anymore…and I think they still love me (LOL). My kid’s future is just too important to worry about slighted feelings. I honestly believe that folks who vote for socialist/liberal, unconstitutional programs and elected officials are taking a bright future away from our kids.

      Hi Erma :)
      I have also tried to convince many of the Obamabots that if he is re-elected the Country will be in dire straits.
      One thing that I have found that seems at least to get their attention is the amount of debt we hold and the deficit that exists.
      I have found that most of them cannot define the difference between the two and have no idea of the amounts involved.
      Ignorance put Obama in office along with a machine that had been waiting for this opportunity for years.
      America was put into a corner, and the results are obvious.
      Take care my friend !

    sad and true..somewhat…
    I still stand with by my original statement:
    VOTING FRAUD!!!
    why I believe this?
    well, because 98% blacks voted for obama
    but they are only 14% of population with probably 7% within voting age.
    a load of Hispanics voted (legal or not),
    but majority voters are white and well informed…even those spitting out their PC nonsense in the privacy of voting booth their checked McCain…
    and
    my job is to work with people all day long every day.
    For 26 years I was working in 5 States: Michigan, Ohio, North Carolina, Indiana and Arizona…I was married to GM guy and AutoWorkers Union is something I am very familiar with….
    as much people were holding their noses toward McSeelout they really like Ms Palin appreciating her love for the Country and fresh view on Washington De City politics…
    taking the less-surprising option into their options…
    Statement sounding like:
    ‘…hmm….well…he is a handsome looking fella, speaks some grabbing the stars stuff, but he is ….hmm…black…and I am not sure I want to vote for someone making WHITES minority’..
    (please know I am paraphasing and rounding the statements into fewer words)
    so:
    The morning after the election I woke up to the blasting news that obama has won….!!!!
    honestly…I was in shell-shock for days!!!
    there was no way in hell!!!!!!
    I will never believe the election was honest and true!
    ….
    and what we are witnessing obama and thugs are capable of ….
    …my conviction is even harder….
    lets hope we will have nest election…..

      I have no doubt that tons of voter fraud takes place. (The biggest horror that is not fraud is the fact that too often, military ballots are not received in time to be counted. In this age of technology and overnight shipping, there is absolutely no excuse for that).
      BUT you have to remember the entire West Coast–only a small % of voters on the left coast aren’t left and the major cities–Miami, NY, Chicago–so many democrats. And unfortunately, there is a large portion of seniors who have been voting Democrat for 50 years and still don’t realize (or choose to ignore) that today’s democratic party is NOT the party of JFK.

        It’s not the party of JFK, all right … in fact, it’s not even the Democratic Party anymore. Today’s Jackasses are committed Socialists & so far left they’d have to circumnavigate the globe just to get back to the center.

    This is exactly right. Many Americans have grown too comfortable with all the wonderful things they have had and with their pleasant diversions to pay much attention to what is going on in the world, so long as they do not think that it affects them directly. Francis Schaeffer use to say something to the effect that the greatest threat to humanity was the fact that so many people did not care about much of anything but their own personal peace and prosperity. So true. This is what an idiot does.

    Hi, could you please give a link to the item?

    The reason is simply because as far as those of us that have checked, the quote is bogus and no such article in that newspaper exists. IE, you have been accused by some as having made it all up.

    Before calling you basically a down-and-out liar, I would rather you prove that the item is real which in that case I will let those accusing you know.

      Hi, DC. The appearance of that quote here is not it’s first appearance. It has been on much more widely read blogs and websites than my own. The paper quoted is written in German and alas, I do not speak German. I will try to find the time today to see if I kept a record of where I found it orginally. I usually do keep records of links, etc. If I find it I will post it here.
      Quite frankly, I wish I could take credit for “making it up” but I cannot :)
      Thank you for stopping by.

      I went back through my notes. I picked up it somewhere–it’s all over. What we need is someone that reads German to search the newspaper’s back issues.
      I think it’s a little funny that libs are so strung out about its existance. It is an opinion, not a fact-based news story. Does it really matter who wrote it? Obviously a lot of people like it because it’s being posted all over.
