America Can —
and Will —
By Michael Collins
.You may recall that many patriots were sure
Bill Clinton would usher America into a
communist police state and the end of the
United States as we knew it. But that didn’t
happen. However — after Clinton — when conservative
Republican George W. Bush came into
office, the U.S. did get dragged into two needless
foreign wars, in which we’re still embroiled, and —
most notably —the GOP-controlled Congress enacted
police-state measures, such as the infamous “Patriot” Act, precisely of the type we were warned
would befall America under President Clinton.
And the truth is that, during the past four years,
many Republican leaders — conservatives — told
Americans that Clinton had really been a dandy
president after all: He cut welfare, boosted the
economy, brought jobs to U.S. workers, cracked
down on crime — you name it.
Yet, during the eight-year misrule of Dubya
Bush — though the GOP didn’t say this — those Clinton
accomplishments fell by the wayside.
During the 2012 election, the GOP wanted voters
to forget that, when he came to the presidency,
Barack Obama inherited much of the Bush-era economic
disruption, resulting from those budget-busting
foreign wars that spiraled our debt.
The point is this: Despite what you may think of
Obama, he is just one man and it’s highly unlikely —
despite scare stories spread by fearmongers — that
Obama will be able to “transform” America during
the next four years into a “European-style socialist
welfare state.” The Republicans still control the
House of Representatives — and thus the national
purse-strings — and they can and will curtail any
wild spending Obama might propose.
But don’t cheer too much for the GOP. As Ron
Paul repeatedly pointed out, the Republican leadership
is unswervingly committed to rampant internationalism,
eager to build up the “defense”
budget — really an “offense” budget — in order to
enforce a global imperium that has nothing whatsoever
to do with traditional American nationalism.
Paul contends that we could cut the military
budget as much as 50 percent and that the U.S.
would still have the toughest military in the world,
bar none. And Paul is no communist, nor is he anti-American.We must heed Paul’s warnings and combat
efforts — largely from the GOP — to force
America into another expensive and foolish foreign
war, this time against Iran.
To his credit, Obama has thus far resisted pressure
for war. Despite threats against him by supporters
of Israel, Obama stood firm. And now that
he no longer faces the pressure of seeking reelection,
Obama has the opportunity to stand up to Israel
once and for all. The New York Times is
reporting widespread fear Obama will do just that.
During the past four years, a former Israeli, one
Orly Taitz, was largely responsible for stirring controversy
with claims Obama was born in Kenya. If
true, Obama should have never been in the White
House in the first place.
But the bottom line is that Obama remains president.
Forcing him from office would elevate Joe
Biden to the presidency. A big-spending liberal and
a shameless advocate for Israel, Biden would be no
The job of every real patriot is to stand behind
Obama when he’s right, and to speak out when he’s
wrong. But it would be a drastic mistake to get distracted with
issues that are not going to be resolved
and fail to focus on the big picture.
Right now we need to support Obama and the
generals and admirals allied with him who are resisting
pressure for war. Such a war would not be
in America’s interests — and it could bring an end
to America as we know it.
