Senator Obama and a number of other liberals are in good company: Castro, Kim Jung Il, Lenin, Stalin, Pol Pot and Adolf Hitler, just to name a few. Is anybody really surprised?
Fidel Castro came to power, ostensibly, to remove a rather oppressive military dictatorship and stayed to perpetuate an even more oppressive communist dictatorship. In 1935, it was Adolf Hitler who said, “This year will go down in history! For the first time, a civilized nation has full gun registration! Our streets will be safer, our police more efficient and the world will follow our lead into the future!” Lenin and Stalin promised a “Worker’s Paradise.” The people of Russia are still waiting; those that are still alive. In the People’s Paradise of North Korea, the people can only eat if China ships them food. In Pol Pot’s Cambodia it was necessary to kill 2 million people who just couldn’t seem to “get with the program.”p>Today, 60% of the world’s population can barely afford to eat. Yet, 90% of Americans can afford to pick up a $4 double mocha latte on their way to work every morning? Why? Because America works. And as the old saying goes, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” The only thing that is broke, in this country, is Liberalism. Maybe it is time to fix that. br> — Michael Tobias /p>
Jeffrey Lord’s assessment of leftist Democrats’ fascist ambitions is accurate, but he fails to mention the real kicker: the electorate may actually want it. Authoritarian government requires less personal responsibility, less thinking and less input. The bet here is many Americans have little problem with having someone telling them “what to do, and when to do it.”p>Forty years of pumping intellectual sewage through our public schools was not for nothing. br> — Arnold Ahlert br> Boca Raton, Florida /p>
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
