Perhaps when American citizens start dropping dead from Ebola, or perishing in a renewed wave of terrorist attacks, the government will get serious about securing our borders: “A leaked intelligence analysis from the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) reveals the exact numbers of illegal immigrants entering and attempting to enter the U.S. from more than 75 different countries.”
I don’t believe there’s any room left for intelligent doubt concerning the president’s psychological alienation from the very concept of America, and his belief that the world would be a better place if our country were an amorphous and heterogeneous stew of competing cultures, unassimilable because, in his ideal polity, there would be no central body of normative beliefs for people to assimilate – save for the primacy of the state, of course, and the necessary elimination of such outmoded ideas as individual liberty and personal responsibility.
Yes, Obama is an unmitigated disaster, but the effectiveness of the body politic’s “immune system” has been declining for generations, so Obama or someone like him was inevitable. More’s the pity that the opposition is led by mental midgets, self-dealing scoundrels and quaking poltroons. How this political dog’s breakfast is to be rectified short of another revolution is quite beyond me; if this lawless administration, and its fellow-travelers in the GOP, gets what it wants with respect to amnesty, I’m not sure that a revolution at the ballot box is even going to be possible for much longer. Even without the prospect of hordes of new Democratic voters, our future is looking grim, as a secular cloud of unknowing has descended on millions of our fellow citizens, enveloping them in the grossest ignorance of the tangible value of freedom and the soul-destroying consequences of its absence, leaving them prey to the blandishments and bribery of the ruling class’s shrewdest confidence men, unwitting hitchhikers on the road to serfdom.
