Inhofe Calls a Spade a Spade

As one who believes this nation is currently swirling much closer to the bottom of the loo (that's British for toilet) than most of my fellow citizens appear to realize, it is nice to hear from an elected representative that is actually plugged in to what is really going on in D.C. right now, as it goes far beyond just the attempt on the part of the Obama cabal to pull off a federal government seizure of our nation's health care system.

Myself, along with many others, took the time to study up on Barack Hussein Obama back when he first announced his intention to run for the highest office in the land. Needless to say, we did not like what we found. This man, who few outside the city of Chicago had even heard of  four years ago, had a list of family members, friends and associates that could have been lifted from the pocket of Hugo Chavez or Fidel Castro. Nowhere could we find anybody in his life that had any love for freedom and liberty, two words that have eluded use by our now 44th POTUS since he began campaigning for the office.

Obama ran on a platform of "hope" and "change," while promising to "transform" America. My question was always, "What does a person who has spent his entire life being influenced by Marxists and communists going to transform a nation into?"

Well, it sure as Hell wasn't going to be a bastion of freedom and liberty, now was it?

Today, nearly nine months into what I believe is essentially a Marxist coup (blitzkrieg?) being carried out against our country, a very clear picture of these people's true intentions is becoming crystal clear. Many of my conservative friends appear to still want to believe that the Obama administration is simply trying to turn us into another Canada or France. Wrong! We are being rapidly transformed into Cuba.

America's private sector economy is being dismantled with alarming speed, and its wealth is being systematically destroyed. Companies large and small are hemorrhaging jobs, or closing their doors. The federal government is moving in on many areas of the private sector economy they have no business, nor any constitutional basis for, being involved in.

It pains me to see that, even nine months into this lunacy, there are still members of the Republican Party who seem intent on aiding these hideous people in their efforts to "re-make" America. At least Sen. Jim Inhofe is not among them, who had this to say at a town hall that took place in Grove, Oklahoma on Wednesday:

“I never dreamed I would see an administration try to disavow all the things that have made this country different from all others,” Inhofe told more than 300 people at a town hall meeting in the Grove Community Center.

“I have never seen so many things happening at one time so disheartening to America.” Inhofe found a highly receptive audience. Many wore T-shirts of a local organization called Get America Back. Its Web site promises “a plan to eliminate the socialist government and return Americas (sic) freedoms.”
Neither did I, Senator. But here is the money quote:

“Those of you who think like I do,” Inhofe said, “hope this country can hang on another 16 months.”
Honestly, given the alarming speed at which things have been unfolding in this country over the last nine months, I am truly beginning to wonder if there will be enough of the America I grew up in left to save by November of 2010. What is happening isn't surprising to me in any way, but the pace of it all has shocked me to my core.
