"If at age 20 you are a conservative then you have no heart. If at age 30 you are a liberal then you have no brains."
Sir Winston Churchill

Obama obviously knows very little about economics, specifically that "Society stagnates when independent productive achievers begin to be socially demonized and even punished for their accomplishments." This dilemma fogs Obama's reality. To him, accepting this truth is a "false choice", his answer to things he doesn't understand. And by the way... where is John Galt?

Edmund Burke once famously said “That the only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good [people] men do nothing”

I would add two corollaries to this. The first is that the only things necessary are also “ that good people not believe that evil exists” and the second is “that good people not hear the truth.”

We have seen evil at work once again in Boston on April 15th at the Boston Marathon as yet more Americans died or were maimed and wounded at the hands of terrorists bent on carnage for the sake of God knows what. While reasonable people recognized this evil for what it was, far too many politicians saw only crass political opportunity. It did not take long for the leadership of the Democratic party to blame the attack on the sequester or the fact it was “Tax Day“. Nor did it deter “progressive” leftists such as David Sirota to openly hope on Salon.com that the bomber is a white American, because otherwise the Obama agenda re immigration, defense reductions and leaving Afghanistan would be jeopardized and Muslims might be victimized whereas white people, who have priveledge… never are. At MSNBC Chris Matthews yearned that the terror was done by right wing extremists. Barney Frank yelped that this proves that tax cuts should be discarded. The blood was not even cleansed from Boylston Street when these disgusting and inappropriate things were said or written.

For the falsely named “progressive” left ( their progress is our subjugation by the state ) there is no such thing as evil unless it can be used in a negative context with white or black conservatives, religion, traditional marriage, the right to life, the constitution, the flag, the military, gun ownership, limited government, low taxes or the belief that parents and not the state have hegemony over their children. Their sense of evil is divorced from everything decent and linked only to their toxic ideology.

The intrusion of base politics into the horror of Boston almost immediately, is in truth part of a war aimed at our national soul and national unity.

In this war for the soul of our country, we are losing the threads that have made us whole…we are losing the glue that keeps us whole… and we are in danger of losing the will to keep us whole. E Pluribus Unum is becoming E Pluribus Pluribus as we are divided by race, gender, age, religion, class, ethnicity, income and politics into a balkanize nation of warring tribes.

And while reasonable people see the truth for what it is, far too many political types either ignor the truth or distort it. The City Council of New Rochelle warps our history by banning a flag from flying over the New Rochelle Armory that was the same flag Americans first fought under at the beginning of the American Revolution. This is a flag that is still flown on US Naval vessels and at forward US Marine bases in the mountains of Afghanistan. All five Democrats on the City Council voted for this ban and then sent city workers to confiscate the flag to prevent, I assume, revolution from breaking out in New Rochelle. One Democrat leader likened the Flag known as the Gadsden Flag or the Culpepper Flag which shows a coiled snake with a yellow background and the words ”Don’t Tread on Me” to the Nazi swastika. Others likened it to the Confederate “Stars and Bars” or to the Rainbow flag of “Gay Rights”. The real reason I suspect is that the flag has become associated with the Tea Party movement which Democrats in great numbers seem to loath and wish to paint as a fascist movement.

The real fascists however are these “progressives” with their elitist “evolved”worldview that propels their every effort to make a new “Leviathan” of the state that will control our lives, our culture and our future in ways that would make Stalin blush.

Now is the time for lamentation and the expression of grief. We need as a united people to mourn our dead and comfort our afflicted. We do not need bombast or propaganda or disrespect. Every crisis is not an opportunity for political opportunism. The nation needs to heal to get past this evil assault on all of us. We need to let our laws work so that justice can prevail and defeat the demonic forces who attack us. We need to identify our enemies foreign and domestic and defeat them once and for all to prevent them from committing future evil acts against us. We need peace, sanity, a return to our historic values and rational justice within the land and we need to tell those who would divide us to go away… far away …and allow us to, in the words of Stephen Foster, to help us reach that promised land where “hard times come again no more”.
