Bloviating Zeppelin: America: Still Exceptional

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

America: Still Exceptional


Despite what our current regime in DC might think, helmed by the defeatist Mr Barack Hussein Obaka and bolstered by the DEM.

But exceptional for a limited time only.

Because America, like any other country at any other point in history, can only absorb so much "undermining."


Do you not recall the Underminer in the 2004 animated film, "The Incredibles"? Did he not say:

Behold, the Underminer! I'm always beneath you, but nothing is beneath me! I hereby declare war on peace and happiness! Soon, all will tremble before me!

Mr Obama is The Underminer personified, as well as his administration. He and they do not believe in the inherent goodness and exceptionalism of this country. They instead believe that our influence, our power, our internal strength, needs to be minimized and, further, turned over to other agents and influences. And that is why, frankly, they and their kind need to be cast aside.

Any rational, logically-thinking and globally-aware human being of average intelligence knows that government, historically, has not been and will not be, in the future, The Answer.

The Answer lies with God, and the will of the Individual.

The Answer lies within ourselves. Either we work, we sweat, we toil, we expend energy in a fight for our labors, our jobs, our family, our friends, our property, or we decide to be Kept by a government. As has been said any number of times:
A government big enough to give you all you want, is big enough to take away everything you have.

Yes, we'll barbeque today, we'll drink some beer, we'll grill some meats, have friends over, perhaps watch some fireworks.

But I submit the bulk of America still misses the point: we are an exceptional country. We have NOTHING to feel guilty for.

GUILT is an emotion that others, who wish to take us DOWN, want us collectively to experience.

Because:

If it were not for the United States of America, in its short, short run, the bulk of the planet would be operating under ever-more oppressive regimes and hundred-of-millions of human beings would have been further exterminated for the desires of a handful of tin-pot dictators.

A strong America keeps a strong planet.

A weak America enables Evil to propagate.

Uncomplicated as that.

From the Heritage Foundation:
In 1776, when America announced its independence as a nation, it was composed of thirteen colonies surrounded by hostile powers.

Today, the United States is a country of fifty states covering a vast continent. Its military forces are the most powerful in the world. Its economy produces almost a quarter of the world's wealth. The America people are among the most hard-working, church-going, affluent, and generous in the world.

And our current dilemma, which must be handled and then diminished:
GOVERNMENT DEPENDENCY: William Beach and Patrick Tyrrell, "The 2010 Index of Dependence on Government: Dramatic Spike in Dependence Projected," June 28, 2010:

The vision of the Founding Fathers was that we would control government, not that government would control us. The dependence of everyday Americans on government threatens our republican form of government, as well as broader civil society.

Despite the storm clouds not only on our horizon but hovering directly over each state, America is still exceptional. And everyone who states "not so" is an Underminer.

Plain and simple.

On this, our July 4th, I respectfully ask: draw a line. Make a choice. Us or them. Parasites or Hosts. Doers or takers. Patriots or Underminers.

I know on which side of the line I stand.

I stand for a nation under God. I Stand for freedom, and to be free from a tyrannical government.

I have chosen my side.

Btw, I loved the Monty Python cartoon, I have forgotten how much enjoy their humor.

People need to get away from this idea that government is The Great Provider. We have immersed ourselves in a Culture of Entitlement. This country did not become great because of slackers and leeches. We became an exceptional country because of exceptional people, people who wanted a better life and found it in the United States of America.

Happy Fourth of July Everyone.

I stand with Leticia and you. Patriot, I didn't spend 22 years defending this country to watch it get subsumed by the Left.

Hear, hear!

Too many Americans take our nation and the freedoms here for granted. That attitude serves only to take our nation down.

As for Obama, he is indeed the Underminer. Unless we get this nation turned around, he'll be linchpin for America's destruction!

Leticia, I too very much enjoy British humour!

Christopher, thanks most kindly!

Otis: quite true. Always enjoy your avatar!

NFO: precisely. But the hardest work is still to come.

AOW, and the mantra is now "What can my country do for ME" meaning: what can my Gubmint do for me?

TF: we won't have fireworks, too much dry forest up here, but we have a great town celebration!
