Day of Infamy

…from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger

The sixth of November 2012 was a day when America stabbed herself in the back – America of Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, Dwight Eisenhower and Ronald Reagan. America of Franklin Roosevelt, Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, Jeremiah Wright and Michelle Obama simply joyfully injected another syringe-full of eternal bliss into the vein. Obama got his promised revenge on those American people who do not like him for what he has done to the once mighty United States. They will all now be united with his venal and vindictive voters in a slow and painful seppuku.

Against all reason, Americans selected a greater evil, undoubtedly to the immense joy of socialists everywhere. The lies do work; Lenin was right. All enemies of USA welcomed Obama’s re-election. Ninety-three percent of American blacks and seventy-one percent of Hispanics voted for Hussain Obama. Stockholm syndrome? Visceral racial hatred?

America’s economic problems are just about unsolvable so the election result is win-win for Obama and socialists. Republicans still remain majority in the Congress. If they do not cooperate, Obama can blame them for his inability to avoid the economic collapse; and if they do, he can say they were complicit in it.

In 1887 Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history professor at the University of Edinburgh, had this to say about the fall of the Athenian Republic some 2,000 years prior: “A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous
gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse over loose fiscal policy, (which is) always followed by a dictatorship.”

“The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations from the beginning of history, has been about 200 years. During those 200 years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence:

From bondage to spiritual faith;
From spiritual faith to great courage;
From courage to liberty;
From liberty to abundance;
From abundance to complacency;
From complacency to apathy;
From apathy to dependence;
From dependence back into bondage.”

Professor Joseph Olson of Hamline University School of Law in St. Paul, Minnesota, points out some interesting facts concerning the 2008 presidential election:

Number of States won by: Obama: 19 McCain: 29
Square miles of land won by: Obama: 580,000 McCain: 2,427,000
Population of counties won by: Obama: 127 million McCain: 143 million
Murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won by: Obama: 13.2 McCain: 2.1

Professor Olson adds: “In aggregate, the map of the territory McCain won was mostly the land owned by the taxpaying citizens of the country.

Obama territory mostly encompassed those citizens living in low income tenements and living off various forms of government welfare…”

Olson believes the United States is now somewhere between the “complacency and apathy” phase of Professor Tyler’s definition of democracy, with some forty percent of the nation’s population already having reached the “governmental dependency” phase.

The update should be interesting. Olson’s forty percent or Romney’s forty-seven percent will grow in next four years to perhaps sixty-seven percent. People suggesting that last Tuesday America missed her final chance may be unfortunately right.

Spengler in Barack Obama and America’s decline:
Nearly a third of Americans now depend on food stamps, welfare, disability payments, or some other form of government support, compared with one out of five when George W Bush left office. This enormous shift has occurred before the detonation of a demographic time bomb that will explode towards the end of the present decade, and which will push America towards even greater dependency. This time bomb has four facets:

The baby boomers will retire, and the percentage of Americans over 60 will jump from a sixth to a quarter of the total population in little more than a decade;

The population that replaces the baby boomers will come to an increasing extent from families with the lowest level of educational attainment;

A new underclass is in formation due to the jump in the rate of births out of wedlock, which comprised two-fifths of total births in 2011;

Dependency on government support will rise sharply just as the federal government’s capacity to finance the dependent population will fall.

And since I may not be returning to the America’s version of democracy for some time: I was surprised that after all that time Hussain Obama still needed teleprompter for his standard stump speeches. I was surprised that Bruce Springsteen decided to sing at some Obama’s rally – surely Born in the USA would be too provocative? He sang something else – the old fellow has no guts and the young fellow has no sense of humour. And finally – where was Ralph Nader when he was needed?

What times we live in.

About Antisthenes

A Greek philosopher, a pupil of Socrates. Led a revolt, with Diogenes, against the demands of the city-state and the sophistication of life. Accepted the interrelation of knowledge, virtue, and happiness; and sought the ideal condition for happiness in return to primitivism and self-sufficiency. Rejected all social distinctions as based on convention, scorned orthodox religion as a fabrication of lies, and studied early legends and animal life in order to arrive at a true understanding of natural law. The individual was free and self-sufficient when he was master of his passions, secure in his intelligence, impervious to social or religious demands, and satisfied with the poverty of a mendicant. Needless to say, a person who on the Fog of Chaos adopted the Athenian philosopher's name has nothing whatsoever in common with him.
