"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?

“Is this the curse of modernity, to live in a world without judgment, without perspective, no context for understanding or distinguishing what is real and what is imagined, what is manipulated and what is by chance beautiful, what is shadow and what is flesh?
The new alternative culture is in reality the old traditional culture.  The Progressives who were once  Fascists and Communists, have taken what once was commonly shared and historic morality, values, rights and common sense and made them political .  Once they have been repositioned as such, they have been attacked, compromised, made immoral and then destroyed. 
Mark Steyn makes perhaps the most salient point of the of our current political situation when he states "you can't have conservative government in a liberal culture".  Steyn is not alone in understanding that culture drives politics and not the other way around.  That's why the hard left has invested so much time and effort in the subjugation of the arts, the media and the academy. 
These are the gaps in the lines where the progressive invasion have attacked and laid waste to  traditional  America even as the census numbers still reflect a center-right majority.  The thrust of the progressive cultural putsch has been to dismiss and demean the traditional  values of "old" America such as patriotism, free speech, a free press,  religious rights, the nuclear family, the melting pot, the sanctity of unalienable individual rights, rugged individualism, American  exceptionalism, a free market system, respect for the law, the military and the flag, sobriety, chastity, the second amendment,  equal opportunity not equal outcomes, and national unity when foreign affairs and national defense takes us to the waters edge.
In the place of all of this, these new Gauleiters  promote global citizenship, group rights, multiculturalism, intolerance towards Christianity and Judaism in particular and unlimited tolerance towards Islam by contrast, an American history dominated by racism, homophobia, sexism and ethnic bigotry,  massive dependency on the Government, all rights emanating from the Government, income redistribution and equality of outcomes based on statistical models, nanny state socialism, disarming the American population, sexualizing our children at the earliest possible age through  public school curricula labled as social justice,  crony  capitalism and crony socialism,  legalization of drugs, the emasculation  of boys and men, raising unlimited Abortion to the level of a civil right, selective law enforcement, censorship, hate speech, and vicious intolerance towards any one, any group or any philosophy that disagrees with those who dictate to the new Jacobin culture.
The media, entertainment industry and academia have promoted this new dominant culture for generations.  The old America in the throes of economic decline, uncertainty and weakness at home and abroad stands  like a punch drunk fighter absorbing too many blows to fight back, dazed and wondering where their world went. 
Conservatives, independents, libertarians and even moderates are still for the most part behind the cultural curve.  They can't defend their historic way of life because it has become so estranged from what their children have been taught and now believe.  The new replacement culture is edgy, hip and debauched with no edge to the envelope.  It has no boundaries in the name of progress and inclusivity and figuratively tries to guns down  the despised old  guard like an ISIS killing squad in a blood frenzy.   At its virulent , poisonous center is the reality  that  it is a recipe for chaos  and anarchy because a world without stable and fair rules is nothing more than a jungle.  For these hyper-secular libertines with a cult like devotion to celebrity idolatry, nostalgia means the good old days of the Emperor Caligula.  
Modern progressives like their communist, fascist, and pagan antecedents always fail in the end because people will revolt over their repression, lack of a spiritual and moral center and nonsensical anti-freedom dogma.  People who accept the best of western and other peaceful civilizations as a fact of nature, want to be free and independent.  If they are not, soon or later they will begin to fight back.
The battle at hand is to take back the culture and that means that simply ignoring the new culture as an aberration must end.  Governor Mike Huckabee reminds us that there are 80 million Evangelical  Christians in America and only half are registered to vote.  Only half of them moreover, do vote.  If this demographic is not ready to defend the old culture than who will be?
It all begins with saying "no"..."stop"..."no more"...and finally "you have gone too far".  We need to start demanding  instead of being the ones under assault. For example, we need to demand an equal number of conservative academics at state universities where the taxpayer pay the freight. We need mandatory imprisonment for those who rig or cheat at elections.  We want a balanced teaching of American History and a solid grounding in civics and how government is supposed to work. Parents need to be in control of their children's moral education and not the state. We need to decide not to listen to or watch media or entertainment that mocks, lies about and ridicules the beliefs and values we love and cherish.  People of faith and our clerics must storm back into the public square and become a major part of the national conversation.  After all is said and done all we want is a return to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness  on our terms and not  that of a culture that has corrupted our politics and turned our government into despotism.   We are still the majority and we have had enough!   I want the America my old man left me and so should we all.
