If you have ever admitted aloud, "I could not have said it better," you'll certainly understand my rationale for reprinting (with permission of its author) the following excellent article posted at the following site:

"A truly scary and terribly frustrating aspect of the in-your-face communist takeover of Americais the fact that perhaps half (or more) of the American population can’t see it. There are plenty of wide-awake American patriots who are watching in stunned amazement at the blatantly criminal actions of Barack Obama (or whatever his name is) and his lawless administration. But, there are so many other Americans who are oblivious to it.
When regarding the dullness of the masses of disengaged or otherwise ignorant and deceived Americans, I am often reminded of the opening verses of one of the songs on Pink Floyd’s 1977 concept album Animals. The song “Sheep,” with its irreverent, creepy mockery of the 23rd Psalm, opens with these verses:
Harmlessly passing your time in the grassland away,
Only dimly aware of a certain unease in the air.
You better watch out!
There may be dogs about!
I’ve looked over Jordan and I have seen
Things are not what they seem.
What do you get for pretending the danger’s not real?
Meek and obedient you follow the leader
Down well trodden corridors into the valley of steel.
What a surprise!
A look of terminal shock in your eyes!
Now things are really what they seem.
No, this is no bad dream!
Like sheep set for slaughter, far too many Americans have embraced apathy and ignorance. Apathy and ignorance have allowed the evil-minded enemies of America to cement their power. People who exist in ignorance and apathy are poised for tyranny. We can blame the pitiful government-run, public school mis-education or distracted parents for creating generations of dumbed-down, apathetic citizens, but ultimately American society as a whole has turned from God’s moral—and actual commonsense—truths to disastrous moral relativism, which is no morality at all. Whether we agree with it or not, America has chosen the dark path it’s on.
Some of us wonder how all of America is not up in arms over the purely evil—yes, evil—members of this administration and Congress, who are hell-bent on dismantling the very foundations and freedoms of our representative Republic. We can see it so clearly, so why can’t everyone else? Of course, there are numerous answers to that question, and most of them lead back to ignorance, apathy, deception and even agreement with the dastardly principles of the treacherous, communist Left.
So, can this wicked administration be stopped? How can Obama and his buddies be held accountable for their criminal actions? We certainly know that the Republicans are scared to death of these Chicago thugs. Their actions—or inaction, rather—tell us this. We know that judges all across the country are scared to death of them, at least those who do not already agree with them. So, who does that leave to stop their lawless actions? Good question.
Don’t tell me that The People can gather in Washington and demand anything! What did the communists in power do when millions of Tea Party patriots arose and marched on American cities and Washington in 2009 and 2010? They left town and turned a deaf ear, and the rats in the media pretended not to notice the massive Tea Party turnouts. What about when we flood the phones, faxes and emails of our so-called representatives? How do you like getting those generic form letters in reply that say, “Thank you for expressing your opinion. Now, stick it in your pipe and smoke it”?
This is not to say that we should stop letting them hear from us. Of course not! But, I’m looking for real solutions for stopping these leftist enemies of America, and real solutions evade me, especially now that it seems the Left has cornered the market on election fraud.
If we look back on the last hundred years, we can see that the communists have been infiltrating all our institutions—our schools, our federal, state and local governments, our military, our “entertainment” industry, everywhere that power and influence are to be had. The communists (for that is what they are) have a major lead on us America-cherishing constitutionalists. We now see that with the installation of Obama in our presidency, the communist infiltration is complete. And, with his second term afoot, we are witnessing a no-holds-barred enemy assault on our nation.
We are seeing the assault on our God-given right of self defense with Obama’s criminal, anti-Second Amendment executive orders and the congressional push to ban certain guns and all but low-capacity ammunition magazines. All this is happening while the government itself is procuring billions of rounds of ammunition and thousands of rifles for the Department of Homeland Security. What are they planning on American soil? We can surely imagine, and it’s not good.
We are seeing the insanity of congressional attempts, by both Democrats and worm Republicans, to grant amnesty to illegal aliens—this, after Obama’s criminal executive order doing the same thing just prior to the last “election.” Who will stop them?
We are seeing Obama’s lawless Environmental Protection Agency waging a war against our own energy supplies under the Marxist ruse of “saving the planet” from the global warming hoax. Who will resist them?
We are seeing Obama siding with the enemies of America in the Middle East, and going so far as to allow our own Ambassador and three other Americans to be murdered by Muslim animals on September 11th in Libya. Not only has Obama not allowed our men to go in and annihilate the Muslim terrorists who did this, but he is going forward with his gift of our military’s war planes and millions of dollars of our money to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. Who will stop him?
We are seeing the destruction of our military. These commie dirtbags have done all they can to drive out the patriots and install their own people in military leadership. They have broken down the rational prohibition of openly homosexual people serving, and now they have taken the ludicrously insane step of permitting women to serve in combat.
We are under a daily barrage of outrages coming from this administration and the tools and goons in Congress. There is no doubt that this is certainly by design, intended to keep us off-balance and in distress at the overwhelming flood of sick-as-Hell, lawless power on display by these seemingly unstoppable dictators in Washington.
Can they be stopped? I don’t know. The hearts and minds of too many of the American people are inundated and swayed by leftist media and entertainment propaganda, and the Left is winning its misinformation war. This is a huge deficit for conservatives. The leftist media message machine has a near-monopoly on American households. How do we reach the sheeple with our message of what America is supposed to be and what true freedom means, and the truth about where the communist Left’s plans will ultimately lead?
I don’t have the answers. But, I am certain of one thing: we no longer have the “luxury” of sitting idly by and watching the world go ‘round. It has come to the point that we must resist or be assimilated. We must resist this lawless federal government and its unconstitutional edicts. The federal government has come completely untethered from the constitutional bonds on its power. This is a lawless President and a lawless administration being aided by a criminally negligent Congress and judicial branch.
Our remaining outlet—short of starting at the bottom to retake our institutions at this late hour—is to resist, and spread the word. We must not allow ourselves to be disarmed and silenced. Tyranny is at our doorstep. We must not give our nation over to it. We must firmly resist this tyranny, or we can kiss our country and our freedoms goodbye forever."
