As America continues to degrade, perhaps we should take stock of the situation. Let us consider liberty, the economy, morality, defense, and demographics.
The liberty bequeathed us by our ancestors is fading, much of it already gone. The plain words and provisions of our Constitution are openly violated and despised by our politicians. Former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi was shocked, offended, and sarcastic when she was asked where the Constitutional justification for ObamaCare was. Obviously, there is none. And Obamacare is just one of the more recent egregious examples. The 2nd and 4th Amendments are under siege. Eminent domain steals our property. Free speech is being questioned when it challenges the government’s official position on a subject, or when an issue is deemed “hate speech” against a protected minority (preferably a minority that did nothing to help establish, settle, or build America).
The economy is on its way down. Our monetary system is a sham. The Founders made specie (gold and silver coin) the money of the land, a medium of exchange with intrinsic value that a government cannot eliminate. Eustace Mullins exposed the Federal Reserve System, the current paper money racket, way back in the 1950s.
When you bring together valueless paper money, a nation who does not grow their own food, most manufactured goods being imported junk, our “service economy”, a $19 TRILLION dollar government debt, massive consumer debt, and unstable petroleum prices because of Middle Eastern unrest -you have a recipe for an economic collapse that will make the 1930s Great Depression look mild and rosy.
On morality, the traditional Christian morality of the U.S.A. and western society is almost gone. Sexual sin and sexual perversion that was scandalous fifty years ago -and sometimes punishable by prison or death a few centuries ago- is now promoted on mainstream TV -and acted out on cable TV and in the movies vomited out by KosherWood. Small towns and rural areas that did not lock their doors at night fifty years ago now have locks, burglar alarms, 24 hour police patrols, and loaded weapons kept bedside.
Stable families are a memory. Over 40% of marriages end in divorce. Children born out of wedlock are more and more common, with more than half of black children now born illegitimately.
While some people, especially those in rural America, still own and carry guns for defense -the majority of America adults do not. The concept of a citizen militia as the last line of defense against tyranny and foreign invasion is a faded memory, a memory wiped away with the First World War.
Demographically, the people who founded and settled America are dying. The European people who settled our land, fought the American Revolution, framed the Constitution and Bill of Rights, and built America are slowly dying. On average we are not having enough white children to maintain our numbers. Coupled with black welfare mommas and illegal immigrants from Mexico and Central America, America is daily getting browner. Soon we will be a minority in our own land. When will the colored masses begin to sing “Kill the Boer” in America?
The title of this essay was Looking Up At The Cliff, not Standing At The Edge Of The Cliff. We have slipped over the edge of the cliff and are looking back up as we fall. The only question is whether or not enough of us will survive the fall to rebuild the country of our ancestors.
