I am a student of history. Professionally, I
have written 15 books in six languages, and
have studied history all my life. I think there issomething monumentally large afoot, and I do
not believe it is just a banking crisis, or a
mortgage crisis, or a credit crisis. Yes, these
exist but they are merely single facets on a
very large gemstone that is only now coming
into a sharper focus. Something of historic
proportions is happening. I can sense itbecause I know how it feels, smells, what it
looks like, and how people react to it. Yes,
a perfect storm may be brewing, but there is
something happening within our country that
has been evolving for about 10 - 15 years. The
pace has dramatically quickened in the past two.
We have spent two or more decades intentionally
de-industrializing our economy. Why?
We have intentionally dumbed down our schools,
ignored our history, and no longer teach our
founding documents, why we are exceptional,
and why we are worth preserving. Students by
and large cannot write, think critically, read, or
articulate. Parents are not revolting, teachers arenot picketing, school boards continue to back
mediocrity. Why?
We have now established the precedent of
protesting every close election (now violently in
California over a proposition that is so
controversial that it wants marriage to remain
between one man and one woman. Did you ever
think such a thing possible just a decade ago?).
We have corrupted our sacred political process
by allowing unelected judges to write laws that
radically change our way of life, and then
mainstream Marxist groups like ACORN and
others to turn our voting system into a bananarepublic. To what purpose?
Now our mortgage industry is collapsing, housing
prices are in free fall, major industries are failing,
our banking system is on the verge of collapse,
Social Security is nearly bankrupt, as is Medicare
and our entire government. Our education system
is worse than a joke (I teach college and know
precisely what I am talking about.) The list is
staggering in its length, breadth, and depth. It is
potentially 1929 x 10. And we are at war with an
enemy we cannot name for fear of offending
people of the same religion who cannot wait to
slit the throats of your children if they have the
opportunity to do so.

And now we have elected a man no one knows
anything about, who has never run so much as a
Dairy Queen, let alone a town as big as Wasilla,
Alaska. All of his associations and alliances are
with real radicals in their chosen fields of
employment, and everything we learn about him,
drip by drip, is unsettling if not downright scary
(Surely you have heard him speak about his idea
to create and fund a mandatory civilian defense
force stronger than our military for use inside our
borders? No? Oh, of course. The media would
never play that for you over and over and then
demand he answer it.. Sarah Palin's pregnant
daughter and $150,000 wardrobe is moreimportant.) I have never been so afraid for my
country and for my children as I am now. This
man campaigned on bringing people together,
something he has never, ever done in his
professional life. In my assessment, Obama willdivide us along philosophical lines, push us apart,
and then try to realign the pieces into a new and
different power structure. Change is indeed
coming. And when it comes, you will never see the
same nation again.
I thought I would never be able to experience
what the ordinary, moral German felt in the mid-
1930s. In those times, the savior was a formersmooth-talking rabble-rouser from the streets,
about whom the average German knew next to
nothing.. What they did know was that he was
associated with groups that shouted, shoved,
and pushed around people with whom they
disagreed; he edged his way onto the political
stage through great oratory and promises..
Economic times were tough, people were losing
jobs, and he was a great speaker. And he smiled
and waved a lot. And people, even newspapers,
were afraid to speak out for fear that his "brown
shirts" would bully them into submission.
And then he was duly elected to office, with a
full-throttled economic crisis at hand [the Great
Depression]. Slowly but surely he seized thecontrols of government power, department by
department, person by person, bureaucracy by
bureaucracy. The kids joined a Youth Movement
in his name, where they were taught what to
think. How did he get the people on his side?
He did it promising jobs to the jobless, money
to the moneyless, and goodies for the military-
industrial complex. He did it by indoctrinatingthe children, advocating gun control, health
care for all, better wages, better jobs, and
promising to re-instill pride once again in the
country, across Europe , and across the world.
He did it with a compliant media - Did you know
that? And he did this all in the name of justice
and ... . .. change. And the people surely got
what they voted for. (Look it up if you think I am
exaggerating.) Read your history books. Many
people objected in 1933 and were shouted down,called names, laughed at, and made fun of.
When Winston Churchill pointed out the obvious
in the late 1930s while seated in the House of
Lords in England (he was not yet Prime Minister),
he was booed into his seat and called a crazy
troublemaker. He was right, though. Don't forget
that Germany was the most educated, cultured
country in Europe. It was full of music, art,
museums, hospitals, laboratories, and universities.
And in less than six years - a shorter time span
than just two terms of the U. S. presidency- it was
rounding up its own citizens, killing others,
abrogating its laws, turning children against
parents, and neighbors against neighbors. All
with the best of intentions, of course.

The road to Hell is paved with them. Since many of
you enjoy senior citizen status or will sometime in
the not too distant future, I thought you might be
interested in this information.
Every body that is on this mailing list is either a
senior citizen, is getting close or knows somebody
that is.
Most of you know by now that the Senate version
(at least) of the "stimulus" bill includes provisions
for extensive rationing of health care for senior
citizens. The author of this part of the bill, former
senator and tax evader, Tom Daschle was credited
today by Bloomberg with the following statement."Daschle says health-care reform "will not be pain
free." Seniors should be more accepting of the
conditions that come with age instead of treating
If this does not sufficiently raise your ire, just
remember that Congress has their own healthcare
plan that is first dollar or very low co-pay which
they are guaranteed the remainder of their lives
and are not subject to this new law if it passes.Please use the power of the internet to get thismessage out. Talk it up at the grassroots level. We
have an election coming up in one year and nine
months. We have the ability to address and reverse
the dangerous direction the Obama administration
and it's allies have begun and in the interim, we
can make our voices heard! Lets do it!
If you disagree, don't do anything.
