America Commits Suicide


Here lies the United States of America
Born: July 4, 1776
Died: November 6, 2012



The Will of the People Has Spoken, and America Died

The End of an Empire


by Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh
Wednesday, November 7, 2012


Our Constitutional Republic died a peaceful death on November 6, 2012. Having reached the point of no return in a comatose state after years of progressive and illegal immigration assaults, the fabric of conservative society is now completely unraveled and Uncle Sam’s America is no more.


The United States of America is now relegated to the dust bin of history as a “has been” empire. The Shining City on the Hill, the hope of so many millions since July 4, 1776, no longer exists. What rises from the ashes is a country that few of us will recognize, like, or learn to accept submissively.


After 236 years of existence, a new country emerges today, run by secular progressives who rejected our Constitution, what we stand for, and who we are as a nation. The Supreme Court will be forever altered after its last conservative members will be replaced by the liberal academics who call themselves “progressives.” The rule of law will be implemented by Executive Orders, making Congress irrelevant.


The communist motto “Forward” that resonated with so many ignorant Americans will plunge us into many years of darkness from which we will never be able to recover. We have proven our Founding Fathers right, they did give us a Constitutional Republic and we were unable to maintain it.


The forces of the failed communist fundamental transformation that were driven underground in many places around the world, resurfaced with a vengeance in the United States and have now taken over.


How long we will still have freedom of speech, movement, assembly, and control of our private property remains to be seen. Faith and churches will be driven underground; allowing secularism to prosper and take deep roots among the progressives whose God is Mother Earth.


The welfare-dependent Americans, unions, and illegal aliens have chosen for the rest of us the dark path of serfdom to big government and to socialist utopia.


Who would have guessed that the very people who were complaining that the government is not extricating them from disaster or giving them the help they needed in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, would vote for the very politicians who turned their backs on needy Americans after the lights went dark when the political photo opportunities ended?


Who would have guessed that Americans were as ignorant and irresponsible as to choose fiscal destruction over fiscal sanity for their children and grandchildren, secularism and communism over faith, dependence over personal responsibility and self-reliance?

America Commits Suicide
[continued]


Americans have been protesting for the last four years the dismal state of the economy and the direction of our country, the corruption of our politicians, and the loss of personal and economic freedom.


Rallies in support of conservatism overwhelmed venues for Mitt Romney while rallies for our bumbling President became scarcer and scarcer. Yet, miraculously, at the ballot box, our President won all over the country.


We lost seats in the Senate. Americans chose liars and cheats to be their Senators and Representatives, rejecting those who protected the Constitution. The candidate from Massachusetts who claimed direct American Indian lineage to Pocahontas is now a Senator, having defeated Scott Brown. Representative Allen West lost his seat by a narrow margin to the infamous Wasserman Schultz from Florida.


Americans chose high unemployment, reduction of our military, communist indoctrination of their children, and loss of personal freedoms unlike we have never seen before in this country.


I am saddened by the loss of millions and millions of American soldiers who have died to preserve freedom yet we lost it on November 6, 2012. Those buried in cemeteries around the world and at Arlington must be rolling in their graves today. We shamelessly allowed their sacrifice of blood and treasure to go in vain. We have no honor because we let down all the soldiers who fought in recent times and returned home limbless with lives shattered from physical and mental wounds of war.


I mourn today the loss of my adopted country. I have fought hard over the last four years to prevent its overt and accelerated destruction but the darker forces, stronger than many of us, have overcome concerted efforts by millions of Americans to maintain the Republic. Mediocrity, sloth, godlessness, dependence, cowardice, using the law selectively or ignoring it, and hopeless corruption will define the new country. Only God can save us now with his mercy and grace.

Comment: How can we expect God to save a people dedicated to godlessness? History shows we cannot!

John Adams said:

[W]e have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion.... Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
[I]t is religion and morality alone which can establish the principles upon which freedom can securely stand. The only foundation of a free constitution is pure virtue.

Samuel Adams said:

[N]either the wisest constitution nor the wisest laws will secure the liberty and happiness of a people whose manners are universally corrupt.

Benjamin Franklin said:

[O]nly a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters.

George Washington said:

[T]he [federal] government ... can never be in danger of degenerating into a monarchy, and oligarchy, an aristocracy, or any other despotic or oppressive form so long as there shall remain any virtue in the body of the people.

Wow, this is really pathetic. Pahu, can you tell me ANYWHERE in the Constitution that America is a Christian country? Hint: NOWHERE. It's you historical revisionists who try to turn America into a theocracy who are the sick traitors who want to drive this country down the toilet.

What a load of horse-hockey. The Constitution of the USA is a very liberal and progressive document. it gave the power to the people to decide what form of government they want; not to the rich or those born into nobility. The ideal it upheld is that *all* people of this country count, not just those who think that divine right should declare them to be victors. And, while the original constitution was flawed (3/5 of a person, anyone?), the amendments made over time have improved it and brought more freedom to everyone, not just those who support the power of the clergy (see what the founding fathers said about *that*) or that promote obstructionism and demagoguery (look at Congress over the last few years).

Now, what has happened is that the majority of this country has rejected the bigotry and ignorance represented by the far right-wing of the Republican party. The majority has rejected the false-morality of those who hate and follow the news bubble provided by Faux News. It has said that it is time to wake up and face reality rather than hiding behind superstition; that love between consenting adults is *good* even if those adults are the same gender; that women should not be punished yet again if they are raped and become pregnant; and that the government should not give handouts to the rich while denying basic life, liberty, and happiness to the majority.

This is a re-affirmation of what this country means. It shows it waking up after the years of Bush to re-assert its true identity and reject the politics of division and catering to the rich.

The only ones who committed suicide in the last election were the Teabaggers and the other assorted fruits and nuts from the theocratic, social conservative, right wing of God's Own Party.

What a bunch of sore losers! Boo Hoo!

Donald, you silly fool. Democracy lives! We the people have spoken with our votes. The American malcontent has been shown the door. If the American voter had wanted Romney and his magic underpants he would have won the election. If the Rethuglican party had wanted to take the election, they would have consulted the American voter, as to whom they should run. Oh wait, they did, and we didn't want him. The planet didn't explode in the first term and it won't in the second term, either.
We know the state of the economy and we know that so much has been accomplished despite the unprecedented opposition to everything our president has set out to do. There is still more to be done, and you lot can guarantee the loss of 2016, by continuing to do exactly what you have been doing for almost 6 years now. Ostracize the majority of the voters, give them no choice.
Biden/Obama 2016!

Speaking of Suicide:

Scott DesJarlais Approved Wife's Abortion, Slept With Coworkers, Patients, Court Records Say

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/11/15/scot...

"The anti-abortion, pro-family Tennessee congressman who pushed his patient and mistress to get an abortion also agreed that his wife should have two, according to court transcripts released Thursday."

"Those documents, from GOP Rep. Scott DesJarlais' 2000 divorce proceedings, paint a lurid picture of a doctor who had multiple affairs with coworkers and patients -- at least one of whom he prescribed pain pills for -- while he was chief of staff at a local hospital."

"It turns out it was all true, as well as reports that he denied during his 2010 campaign that he stuck a gun in his mouth for more than two hours, and threatened suicide after it became apparent he could not repair his marriage with his then-wife, Susan.

Although DesJarlais called the 2010 reports "all false", he testified under oath they were true."

Although he won reelection, the question is where does the GOP get these hypocrites. How can the GOP continue to win nationwide (outside of the "solid south") with candidates like this?

He won because he is an honest reflection of his constituents. He is them, as they are and not as they claim to be.

"A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the majority discovers it can vote itself largess out of the public treasury." - Alexander Fraser Tyler.

America has taken this idea a step further. Millions now vote against their own self interest for measures that benefit only a small wealthy minority which has the wherewithal to delude the majority into thinking that votes against their own self interest are not.

The tea party was an 'astroturf' group funded by the Koch brothers and other wealthy donors. They stayed in the background and let their dupes support lower taxes for the wealthy. Social conservatives on the right support the program of tax breaks for the wealthy in exchange for lip service to their religious agenda. And, the wealthy have discovered that it is cheaper to buy politicians than to buy votes.

That's why a rich white guy was able to get the votes of so many non-rich white guys, even though he espoused positions directly contrary to the interests of those non-rich white guys.
