The Forced March to Mediocrity

“It becomes increasingly clear that the pattern of American fiscal policy is being brought into consonance with the Karl Marx communist theory that through a division of the existing wealth, mankind will be brought to a universal standard of life - a degree of mediocrity to which the Communists and their fellow travelers seek to reduce the people of this great nation. Whether it be by accident or design, such policy, formulated with reckless indifference to the preservation of constitutional liberty and our free enterprise economy, coupled with rapid centralization of power in the hands of a few, is leading us toward a communist state with as dreadful certainty as though the leaders of the Kremlin themselves were charting our course.” General Douglas McArthur, 1952
Today, the United States of America, a nation that once prospered beyond imagination, and stood as the final barrier between liberty loving societies and tyrannical regimes on a global scale, is in the Twilight Zone. What was up is down, what was unjust is just, what once was recognized as tyranny is now called freedom and what was once the domain of the citizenry is now the realm of a ruling regime that chooses to force all of us to accept and participate in the national March to Mediocrity.

WE, the people, are being enslaved as a result of our own machinations. Under OUR watch was created a blind and deaf behemoth we now recognize as a central-planning collectivist federal government. Blind, because it claims it fails to see how its policies are destroying the American character and is shredding the intent of OUR founders…The Republic. Deaf, because it claims to not hear the high-decibel majority voice…crying out for the continuation and protection of individual Freedom. What have WE created?

The perverted, and yes, un-American, pieces of legislation oozing their way through the halls of Congress over the past few years have taken advantage of our “lack of duty” to govern ourselves. We now find ourselves in a predicament that we have been warned of countless times, over decades, generations, and centuries…no longer are Americans a self-governed citizenry, we are virtually dictated to by that which we are supposed to control.

It remains to be seen. If the Blue Dogs come through, we may yet block the worst of their plans for us. If not, then every word here will come true.

Coming out of Canada makes this article even funnier than the claimed re-animation of that evil Commie Marx.

Well put, it reminds me of a story Ezra Taft Benson (former Eisenhower Secretary of Agriculture)told about a meeting he had with Nikolai Kruschev.

Kruschev told him that one day his grandchildren would live under communism. Benson objected and said it would not happen. Then Kruschev said something to the effect of: "You Americans are so gullible. We will not have to fight you. We will keep feeding you small doses of socialism until you wake up and find you all ready have communism."

My question is; did we win the Cold War?
