This person probably prides himself/herself on being open-minded, but
here the mind appears to be more "simple" than "open," and clearly both
uninformed and misinformed. In contrast to these negative and false
generalities about America, the writer should be reminded that America
has been and still is a beacon throughout the world to people who love
economic and personal freedom. The votes keep pouring in; immigrants
legal and illegal are voting with their feet, coming to America.
At the same time there are those who wish to destroy America from
without and from within. It is important to identify and nullify these
adversaries. Japan tried and failed in WW II. The communists working
through the Soviet Union and its satellites tried throughout the Cold
War to destroy America. And they are still at it, working through their
various front organizations associated with environmentalists,
feminists, and peaceniks. "Big Brother" is a term Orwell coined to
describe a modern totalitarian socialist regime. Could America become a
big brother state? Of course, this could happen (an may be happening)
if the big government socialists continue to erode the Constitution and
destroy the our freedoms which are rooted in civil liberties and private
property rights. For all practical purposes, the Democratic Party is
the party where American socialists and communists have their home.
They represent the wing now called Liberalism in America. They say they
are patriots who love America by caviling, but what they or their
machiavellian masterminds desire is the power to rule America, as a
nation of plebes, dependent upon government for everything, including
what to think. The term "politically correct" comes from communist
dictatorships, such as we have seen in the Soviet Union and China. In
those states, anyone who does not adopt with the "party line" (communist
party, that is) is to be destroyed, reformed, or reindoctrinated. The
American system is anathema to these regimes, because America's
foundation of liberty is based on the economic and political freedom of
individuals to pursue their own happiness. When America opposes evil
totalitarian regimes in philosophy and in war, freedom loving peoples do
not carp; they rally.
