The Grinning Ass

Perhaps it takes a stranger standing on a high mountain top shouting down to us on how we might escape the dark forest we are currently stumbling through. Perhaps we will hear and heed the stranger.  Perhaps not.

The following quote comes from a small European nation, the Czech Republic. It is a translation of an article that appeared in a Prague newspaper.

The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.

How so many people here could be fooled by the smiling lies of Obama and his shady handlers is something the rest of the world simply cannot understand. Conditioned by a steady diet of frivolous TV sit-coms for the past fifty years, Americans have now devolved to the point where perception is more important to them than reality; a toothy smile and lies are more important than the hard truth and depth of character.

Although I still consider George “Mission Accomplished” Bush to be the worst, and most disastrous, president in U.S. history, the current clown in the White House may prove worse still. But like the above comment so sagely notes, there is no one to blame but ourselves; we are getting the leaders we deserve, no better no worse. These two buffoons are a direct reflection of ourselves, our values and our morals (or lack of). Unless a majority of voters in this country start paying much closer attention to politics, both domestic and foreign, and less to sports, sex, and royal weddings, we can totally kiss this mother good-bye.

I am voting for Ron Paul this time around. . . . I see no other option.
