One by one the progressive mayors and college presidents across the south have been chipping away at not only our heritage, but the honor of fallen heroes, many of who died in the great 'War for Southern Independence'. Actually those who would tear down these Confederate Monuments could care less about the statues themselves. It's not about these pieces of stone and bronze stained by the years. It's a power struggle between progressives and conservatives. I thought this was settled, a least for a short while with the election of Donald Trump. I was wrong, and now I fear we are on the losing side once again. Some of us are fighting back. The purpose of this blog is to inform you there is hope. We are attempting to raise funds to erect plaques honoring our fallen Confederate boys in gray. Plaques that will grace the town squares of small towns in the South where they will be welcome. Towns where the voters still have some common sense, unlike those idiots in the large cities and those poor lost young people in our universities. All denotations will be appreciated with the lion's share going to preserve the memory of those who fought and died in that great conflict.

Barack and Liberal Thinking

The elites and academics all have told us over and over that Barack Obama is perhaps the most intelligent, one of the best educated, and certainly one of the greatest orators we have ever had as president. Is he all of the above, and is that why has these recognized leaders of academia and the east coast elitists are virtually swooning over his mere presence. What is this fascination with this heretofore virtually unknown senator from Illinois. Is it his undeniable charm, his youth, his appearance---what is the fascination these people have with Obama. Could it be the fact that he is black and that most liberals have deep guilt feelings toward the way they perceive blacks were repressed in the past and see this as a opportunity to somehow right a wrong. Perhaps its all of these. I do feel a need to point out however, that if Barack were a conservative then none of these things would cause liberals to support or much less praise this man. So the bottom line is not his race, is not his charm, is not his academic standing, is not his youth, is not his appearance, but is his political ideology. True his liberalism is the overriding factor and his other attributes are just gravy for the elites and the academics. He is in effect, everything rolled into one for those on the left. The tingle that Chris Matthews, and others of a like mind feel when they see and hear this man is no mystery, he represents all that they believe in. He is to put it bluntly, their god, in him they see a path to a new future and the prospect of the great society they have long envisioned. These, so-called progressives, do not like the America that has in most cases given them a great life, but favor the establishment of a new order in which the government will be the great equalizer and lift up the down-trodden (as they see them) in our society. They think that everyone has the same ambitions and drives that they have, and those that are left behind have only the a repressive government to blame. They see the existing form of government as the problem ---individuals, in their minds, are all eager for a better life. To them government, and only government has the ability to help those left behind. What the liberal cannot grasp, cannot understand is that the drive for success does not exist in everyone. Some are content with their positions, but many others feel that they are owed something---sadly, many fit into the category. They people are ripe pickings for the progressives; who with their misguided beliefs, think they can actually help. There is a common bond between these two groups---one who feels the are owed something and the other who feels they owe them something. The sad fact is that neither can, in the end be satisfied. Utopia is a wonderful dream, but a rational man will recognize it for what it is ---just a dream. The drive for perfection is often a good thing, but in an effort to gain equality the act of taking from one to give to another will in the end destroy the prosperity of all.Bookmark and Share

You know I agree with your thinking here, it is his liberalism, it was his mixed race, white guilt, but it was all those who influenced Barack throughout his life that made him the perfect package at the perfect time.

Almost any Democrat could have won this presidential election, the anybody but Bush crowd, the fact that all we had was RINO McCain...

But I do see some buyer's remorse setting in on the part of voters. Listening to interviews, some who voted for him are disappointed with his actions, his accomplishments or lack thereof, and disappointed with the fact that there has been no real change, not the kind they were expecting.
