One's Observations

A collection of some things I observe along the way.

Charles Krauthammer writes: The New Liberalism and the end of American ascendancy.

"For America today, decline is not a condition.
Decline is a choice. Two decades into the unipolar world that came about with the fall of the Soviet Union, America is in the position of deciding whether to abdicate or retain its dominance. Decline--or continued ascendancy--is in our hands."

"Facing the choice of whether to maintain our dominance or to gradually, deliberately, willingly, and indeed relievedly give it up, we are currently on a course towards the latter. The current liberal ascendancy in the United States--controlling the executive and both houses of Congress, dominating the media and elite culture--has set us on a course for decline. And this is true for both foreign and domestic policies. Indeed, they work synergistically to ensure that outcome."

"The current foreign policy of the United States is an exercise in contraction. It begins with the demolition of the moral foundation of American dominance. In Strasbourg, President Obama was asked about American exceptionalism. His answer? "I believe in American exceptionalism, just as I suspect that the Brits believe in British exceptionalism and the Greeks believe in Greek exceptionalism." Interesting response. Because
if everyone is exceptional, no one is." (Weekly Standard Article)

Oblama wouldn't know a thing about American exceptionalism if it fell on him.

"They" have chosen to fail. "We" have not. The deal is that we have to show that "we" outnumber "them". We can't simply let declining approval numbers for messiah be enough. We have to galvanize around the idea that we are the majority, that socialism is a pipe-dream propagated by a few elite-minded liberals, and then we need to subsequently dismantle it. Next, we replace the liberal failures with strong work ethics, a strong moral base, and empowerment for all who wish to positively change their own lives. People like Obama and his socialists *want* us polarized to make the case for a huge, overbearing government. Our job is to reject the nanny-state and prove the liberal utopia is fake, unsustainable, and morally wrong.

If we do nothing, Krauthammer is right. We fail. If we learn lessons taught by such failures as Obama, Carter, the UN, etc, we can bring such lessons to our children. If we can do that, we can maintain the groundswell.
