LBJ’s List And The Conservative Challenge
by Jeffrey Lord - June 10th, 2008 - The American Spectator
"Because if we are willing to work for it, and fight for it, and believe in it, then I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal..."
Excuse me? You mean all those LBJ Great Society programs didn't provide care for the sick, secure good jobs for the jobless and take care of the environment? On the off-chance the Internet has a space limitation, let's settle for a partial listing of LBJ's efforts for the sick, the jobless, the environment and more as reflected in the list of legislation he proudly compiled and boasted of in his presidential memoir . . .
"Change you can believe in." That is Barack Obama's constant mantra. Yet the "Change you can believe in" is nothing more than Barack Obama's inability to recognize his Marxist program has already been tried and failed. It has been tried in the Soviet Union and failed abysmally. It has been tried in all of Eastern Europe and these nations threw it off and adopted free enterprise when they finally got the chance. It has been tried in Cuba and North Korea and is rapidly being dismantled in China because it FAILS wherever it has been tried. And between Johnston and Carter, it has even been tried here in America with trillions of dollars poured into programs that have not alleviated the problems. Indeed it has made them worse.
Though Reagan reduced the socialist disaster, many of these programs are still devastating people here in America. As noted in this article:
The reason that Democrats complain of poverty, bad schools and lousy jobs is that -- in places where liberalism rules -- this is exactly what one does find. Take a trip to Detroit and check in on the public school system. Hop on down to New Orleans and see what was going on there before -- not after -- Katrina hit. The failure of LBJ-style liberalism is writ large, for all the world to see. And the answer of Senator Obama is -- more! More! More! MORE!
Obama did not grow up in America. Obama is so out of touch with our nation that he can make statements like the one he made last May, "In case you missed it, this week, there was a tragedy in Kansas. Ten thousand people died — an entire town destroyed.” The actual death toll: 12. This statement is indicative of his total ignorance of our nation. That Obama can think that 10,000 people died and it would not have dominated the news proves how utterly out of touch he truly is with who we are. His excuse? He misread a report. However what this really proves is how unfit to serve as President he truly is. 3,000 people died on 9/11 and it was overwhelmingly in the news. How could Obama not realize that the press reaction to the Kansas story guaranteed no real American would have believed 10,000 people died. It just would not play for anyone who is truly American. Obama did not have a clue.
Why? Because Barack Obama is not really American. He is a global socialist who has been backed by two huge anti-American forces, other global socialists like him among our rich elitists, and bitter African Americans who are disappointed in the failure of the welfare state that their leaders have totally adopted and sold to them. The welfare state policies of victimization have devastated their community. Planned parenthood has nearly reached its goal of black genocide by driving abortion rates in the black community to unheard of levels. Sanger set that as her goal. Democrats have backed it. And blacks still make common cause with this group which is quietly continuing a practice aimed at eliminating them from the earth.
Does that make sense?
I don't think it makes any more sense than the idiocy of Barack Obama trying to claim that he is going to START welfare programs that have been tried for 40 years and which have FAILED despite trillions of dollars. He calls this change you can believe in. It actually constitutes, as Tomas Sowell has noted, "cocky ignorance" on a monumental scale.
