It is the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, requested President Barack Obama attend the ceremonies commemorating this historic event and he has declined the invitation.
Shocked? No one should be. It is my firm belief that he wishes the Berlin Wall was still standing. It seemingly disheartens our president that freedom won twenty years ago and he appears to be constantly scheming to stop the march of liberty in its tracks wherever he finds it.
One only need remember the apology Obama has made for America throughout the world to conclude he does not like his country. Thus, the push for “fundamental change” that continues to come from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
Our president and his majority in Congress see the Constitution of the United States as a stumbling block that must be ignored in order to accomplish his goals. A perfect example is the passage of the health care takeover bill by the US House of Representatives this past Saturday night. This law is unconstitutional in every way and yet 220 members of that body don’t care about such trivial details. When asked about the constitutional authority to impose this legislation Speaker Pelosi’s response was, “Are you serious?” She could not imagine anyone would think about such things!
Mr. Obama and several of the Democrat members of Congress, appear to cling to The Communist Manifesto by Karl Marx more than to The Declaration of Independence by Thomas Jefferson. It looks as if he admires the fear and intimidation of the people practiced by Joseph Stalin rather than the devotion to freedom and liberty of the people inspired by the framer of the Bill of Rights, James Madison. He seems to adhere to The Bolshevik Revolution (Workers of the world, unite!) led by Vladimir Lenin instead of The American Revolution (Live free or die!) led by George Washington.
Americans have voted into The Oval Office the most anti-liberty, anti-business, anti-capitalist, anti-freedom of speech, anti-free market and anti-America individual ever elected President, in my lifetime.
The following appear to be his guiding principals:
“A lie told often enough becomes the truth.”
“The press should be not only a collective propagandist and a collective agitator, but also a collective organizer of the masses.”
“It is true that liberty is precious; so precious that it must be carefully rationed.”
“Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.”
“When there is state there can be no freedom, but when there is freedom there will be no state.”
“The way to crush the bourgeoisie is to grind them between the millstones of taxation and inflation.”
“The best way to destroy the capitalist system is to debauch the currency.”
“Fascism is capitalism in decay.”
“The goal of socialism is communism.”
All of the above quotes are the words of Vladimir Lenin.
As Germany celebrates the anniversary of the removal of their wall, there is a wall of tyranny being built in this country. A wall that government is constructing around the citizenry to seize private industry and private property, to control 48%, if not more, of our economy, to seize our hard-earned money and to dictate our health care ‘choice’ in order to control our lives.
On the other hand, the man who was our president while the Berlin Wall was in its last few years of existence was Ronald Reagan. One can argue there are few men that have been in The Oval Office that loved the concept of America more than Reagan. He loved our founding documents of The Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. He continually talked of the “shining city on a hill” that is America. He loved freedom and liberty for all the people and he distrusted government to do a better job than the people and private industry could do.
In June 1987, one of the most famous speeches ever delivered by any US President was made by Ronald Reagan at the Brandenburg Gate located, at the time, in West Berlin. Two years later, the Berlin Wall would be torn down by the people of East and West Berlin. I remember watching, live, as people used hammers and chisels to chip away at the wall that had divided Berlin for 28 years. That wall had been there for most of my life and it was an unforgettable, amazing sight to see the people destroy it!
Oh, to have a president, once again, that loves freedom for the people, freedom for business, freedom of the press and that knows the limited role of government. I pray America will survive to see another US President that will help us dismantle the wall of tyranny our current government is building and will remember our government is of the people, by the people and for the people.
In 2010, Citizens of America, if you love liberty –
‘Tear down this wall!’
