My sis sent me this in an email today. It is from a friend of hers who was originally a Swiss citizen and who became an American back in the 90's. He is headed to Australia. He is saying what many people in America have been saying and I thought it would enlighten a few people into why America is in decline, economically and culturally. This fellow knows what communism and socialism are. He is seeking freedom. Good luck! Oh, I have copy/pasted and do no editing.
Goodbye to all my friends in Southern California
The first time I moved to San Diego in 1992 it felt like home right from the start. The ever present sunshine and outdoor activities were just what I was looking for coming from the frozen North, Banff Alberta, Canada. Due to different circumstances I returned there in 1994 only to move permanently to Southern California in 1996 this time to Oceanside.
In 1999 I became a flight instructor and never had to stay on the ground again for more than maybe a few days at the time. No question flying is my passion, there is nothing else that comes even remotely close to floating over Mountain tops, Lakes, Rivers, Beaches, and yes jammed up Freeways. Having flown in the Canadian Rockies, over most of the 48 continuous US states, as well as regular trips to Mexico, it all had been most memorable experiences in my life.
My American dream was not to become rich and famous, I only wanted to make a living doing what in my eyes is the greatest invention since the dawn of mankind FLYING AIRPLANES - and I succeeded.
To say goodbye to the country that turned my dream into reality, to the friendships that developed over the years, the outdoor activities in most perfect weather year round the list goes on is sad and a difficult thing to do, say the least.
With disbelieve and great concern I watched an exceptional Nation spiral downward, yes it had been a long time coming. But the events of the last four years of “hope and change” were astonishing to me. Massive Government expansion and intervention in to private industry. Over-regulation of businesses to the point of unaffordability and fast eroding personal freedom. The ever mounting debt and devaluation of our currency it must leave every clear thinking person in dissolution.
Then came the November reelection of President ”Barry Soetoro or is B.H.Obama”, ( who is exactly is he)? In shock for several days I realized that “moving forward” would be more than I can handle. Growing up in a free country, but the threat of Communism always at the doorsteps through all my childhood makes me still very nervous today. Vaguely I remember the building of the Berlin wall, though I was too young to know what it meant, but from the anxious discussions the adults had I knew it was something very bad especially when every few days or weeks you would hear of somebody being killed at the wall who attempted to escape the oppressive East Germany tyranny. In 196 the “Prague Spring” when the Soviet army crashed the freedom movement in then Czechoslovakia had been more real to me. At our schools we had to practice several times orderly conduct and proper behavior in the school’s underground bunker. Looking back on that now, Czechoslovakia was a long way from Switzerland, but it sure freaked everybody out. Only then I learnt about the previous Hungarian Revolution in 1956, where thousands of young man fighting for democracy also had been slaughtered by the crushing Soviet army. So many horrific stories were told by people who found refuge in Switzerland during the Soviet occupation of Central and Eastern Europe and were able to flee their oppressive governments’ of course many did not make it to freedom. When you have to build walls and fences to keep people in, there must be something very wrong. If Communism/Socialism is so great, why were people risking and sacrificing their lives to run from it? Yet the cloud of oppression and the decay of personal liberty have been “moving forward” faster in America than ever before. The demand for social justices and wealth distribution from the left caters to those who feel the country owes them and certainly there are plenty of freeloader in fact probably all who voted for Obama. With carefully crafted lies and deceit the Liberal scholars have taken over the hearts and minds of an entire generation and ridicule the critical thinker. (Watch the documentary by Ben Stine “Expelled no intelligence allowed” (a few years old now). It shows the assault on rational logical thinking manufactured in “Hell’s kitchen” and used in our public schools and universities. Our youth is being indoctrinated to the lie that Capitalism has failed and Socialism is the answer. Where have we heard this before in history?
I have studied our “anointed” Leader for the last four years, including some quotations in his two (mind boggling) books, for example: his unfavorable few of white people, (he was ashamed of his mother’s race) his uncompromising believe in socializing medicine and government interventions in energy, his unapologetic Muslim upbringing in Indonesia admitting to heavy drinking and drug use during his Collage years. Yet all his records are sealed, who is the mystery man? Studying his mentors of the past and his present associates, his speeches, where he says one thing and then does the total opposite and an endless list of executive orders, altogether it has many similarities to the 1930’s Germany. My friends, please check out the dictators of the past and how they rose to power, it is the same pattern every single time, create massive debts with economic and financial meltdown, nationalize industries to “save” them, free handouts, for the “moochers” heavy progressive taxation on everyone, takeover of the health care system, indoctrination in the schools (read the Marxist manifesto). I hope my conclusion is wrong, but I am not willing to take a chance. Good luck to the “new America moving forward”.
I get the same lame argument over and over from some of my friends: We are still better off than everybody else in the world. Answer: For how much longer? What happens when hyperinflation sets in, the Dollar collapses, food shortages, your money becomes just paper, interest rates will skyrocket? Too pessimistic or just the logical consequence: Inevitable implosion? How much longer can we sustain the extension of government, printing money to pay for the interest on the endless barrowing of funds, keep raising the debt ceiling? The Government produces absolutely nothing other than massive expenses, look at any socialist system and find one which works, there are NONE. Eventually they run out of other people’s money the result: Poverty, unrest, chaos in the streets!!!
What exactly does “moving forward” mean? Is that the continuation of “hope and change”? We take from the “evil rich” to redistribute to the lazy and incompetent. We use food, intended for people and livestock to make biofuel, protecting the environment and leave the massive reserves of crude oil underground. We choose to import oil from our enemies, who by the way STONE their homosexuals, but then we boycott Chick’s Filet and other businesses because the owner is for traditional marriage. Should maybe those who are so upset with the ”narrow minded” hold up signs in front of gas stations and Mosques too? Why is it “cool” to embrace the homosexuals, but we outlaw (at least for now) pedophilia and bigotry? Should not ALL perverts get equal treatment?
Why should it be a woman’s right to kill her unborn baby in the “safest place” the womb? What about the baby’s right? What if she gets murdered, the killer gets charged with double murder, where is the logic in that? We killed about 56 Million unborn babies in the last forty years of legalized abortion, which equals to around 18% of the entire US population; rap your mind around that! Further why should we take away guns from law abiding citizens? At the same time we legalize marijuana (so far in three states)? Tens of thousands of people have been killed over the years in alcohol and drug related accidents. Where is the outcry to confiscate alcohol, drugs and cars? Personally I am not confident with my President holding a beer summit on the Whitehouse lawn, what if some sudden crises came up? Was alcohol a player when our embassy got attacked in Libya or was the failure to react preventing the murderer of four brave Americans just incompetence?
For those of you who think it is only four more years, are you sure? Could it be an absolute power crab? After the uttermost failure of the Republicans at the November election, what could possibly turn this around? There has been already a bill introduced to eliminate term limits for the presidency, do your own research.
Also I am not comfortable to know that my taxes and the forced healthcare mandate funds will contribute to abortions, to an utterly failed education system and indoctrination.My heart goes out to those of you who cannot just pack up and leave. I will miss you All and to my Christian friends: May God protect you. To my heathen friends: SORRY you made your choice
