Stark Choice

This is one of those elections where everybody has a clear understanding of the choice: Romney the capitalist and Obama the socialist. And it really is that simple. I'm not suggesting everyone will make the right choice, or suggesting everyone is capable of making the right choice, but nevertheless in this election there has been no clearer contrast between competing views that I can remember. And for me that's kind of scary.

The Democrats have outworked us and outsmarted us. They have taken over the academy, the news outlets, popular culture, the great foundations and institutions and the permanent bureaucracy in government. Their power and influence is substantial. Since the days of Emma Goldman and the turn of the century anarchists, the left has steadily eroded the American way of life and our Constitutional protections. They know if American style capitalism falls their dreams of social and economic "justice" are realized. They don't see America as we do, they see intolerance, poverty and desolation. As long as the greatest example of capitalism and prosperity the world has ever seen, the greatest killer of poverty and want, the best hope for the millions of desperately poor people around the world is allowed to exist, their vision is dead. 

Those just described are most on the left, but never think they are all like that; misguided romantic visionaries. On the contrary, many so called Democrats have very little in common with garden variety liberals. In this small but influential group, if they have an ideology at all it's a perverted mix of Alensky, Machiavelli and Nietzsche. They believe in subversion as a means to power. They are not liberals, they detest liberals. They are not communists, socialists of any of those things. They don't limit themselves to some intellectuals construct. They use the tools available to them at any given moment in pursuit of their own goals. They are evil incarnate and they exist and they are among us. They are the Stalins and Pol Pots and the Zhou Enlais. And if the liberal's dream is ever realized, in very short order they will be the leaders. In my opinion that is the choice, and I pray to God we make the right one. Because if Obama is reelected we may not have a choice.

You left out the millions of Manchurian Candidates infiltrated in to the voter rolls by dint of the dumbing down of the education system over the past 50 years.
