Let's see if the General still knows how to lead.  I think he's quite right, and far too many people don't realize that the government is what we have allowed it to become.

But just cleaning house at the top will not solve the long term problems that still exist.  For starters, the US Congress has systematically disassembled the checks and balances built into the Constitution, and until the Constitution is restored to the way it was originally written there is no hope of restoring a constitutional government.  You have to fix the systemic problems or we will end up right back where we started.

We are in a constitutional crisis like the Republic has never experienced before.  The two political parties are destroying government for, by, and of The People, and we are approaching the time for drastic action if the Republic is to survive. 

Lead on General.....

I think a lot of people miss this very important point. Obama is a symptom of a greater problem. IMHO, in general, we have lost most of our spirit and are on an accelerated rate to lose everything that makes the US, us.

I've used this analogy often but it really is a good example. In in the 1950s and 1960s, the African American community had some of the fastest increases in income over any demographic group, they had the fastest rate of new business ownership, and they had one of the lowest divorce rates. That all changed with The New Deal. It completely changed the spirit within that community- by design. LBJ put it bluntly, said The New Deal would "keep those ****** voting Democrat for 200 years". The PTBs saw that independence was the enemy of their power. They were the party of the poor, and they dam sure were going to keep as many people poor and create as many poor as possible in order to keep their power.

This is just a small, but very visible example of how liberalism works against the spirit of man.

I found myself re-reading Matt Bracken's novels the past few weeks. When I first read them a few years ago, many of the things he described in society I thought were way over the top. Normalcy and decency were ostracized. Fringe was made the norm. I thought it was bizarro world then, but reading it again, it is pretty shocking the attitude similarity he predicted.

Ignorance is now intelligence. Things like the family are now painted as odd or repressive. Entrepreneurism is now considered predatory and damaging. Religion of any type are now evil. Heck, even football has become a liberal philosophy forum.

Look at the 'knock out' game. There is no respect or even acknowledgement of another individual's right of existence. It is beyond crime. It is now just a 'game'. With a crime, there at least is a motive of some sort, even if it is criminal. Now, it is more of a mental state. Of course, because it is a mental state, it will be considered protected and anyone defending themselves from those playing the game will be made to be the criminal.  Why, because the collective will be deemed more important than the individual. The Zimmerman case is a good example. To many, it was OK for Trayvon to 'jump' Zimmerman because he was the product of the collective actions against him. How many referred to him as 'poor', 'broken home', 'different culture', etc. Those all trumped Zimmerman's right to protect his individual existence. Those who took the side of Trayvon still are using the collective good(sic) as an excuse to strip away the individual's existence via 'stand your ground' laws. The ironic thing is not only was that not even used in the case (it was a classic self-defense case), but the person who possibly could have used the Stand Your Ground argument was the lawyers on Trayvon's side. They could have made the defense he felt threatened and had the right to stand his ground and protect him from who he thought of as a threat. Instead, they didn't take that route because it wouldn't allow for the collective to strip the rights of the individual.

Obama's slogan should have been - No You (an individual) Can't, Yes We (the collective) Can.

As with Rome, so with the US; the republic may have to fall.
