Marc Patrone: The Once Great Country of America is Crumbling Before Our Eyes

Reprinted from calgarysun.com.

America is a mess and the world can barely tear its eyes away from the unfolding train wreck.

Our friends are at a crossroads and the implications for Canada and the rest of the beleaguered free world are monumental.

Like it or not, the U.S.A. is the symbol of world freedom and liberty. Without it, I shudder to think what will happen to us.

America must fight to survive the Obama debacle.

Freedom-loving people are growing more angry, frustrated, and worried with each passing day.

They send me e-mail after e-mail out of desperation.

“What do we do now?”

They have zero faith in their government.

But for Fox, talk radio and conservative online newsites, the media, to its eternal, traitorous disgrace, has gone full Benedict Arnold.

They have been a Democratic lapdog so long, they now act as if they have no choice but to continue protecting Obama.

Former CBS investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson has come as close as anyone to exposing media complicity in covering up scandals such as Benghazi.

And what is the administration’s push to regulate the Internet but a shameless attempt to silence online critics.

It only gets worse. Various arms of the state including the IRS, designed to be apolitical, have been subverted and weaponized into attack drones aimed at conservative groups.

Attempts to expose what’s going on are stonewalled at the highest levels.

These are nightmarish attacks on freedom-loving people around the world.

Once respected institutions such as academia, the labour movement and the entertainment industry are viewed with great suspicion — and so they should be.

But worst of all, there’s the presidency.

Instead of healing the racial divide, the election of this president has only fanned the flames of grievance and hatred.

The sales pitch/sham that was ‘hope and change’ is a smoking ruin, trampled and set ablaze in Ferguson.

If the world is lucky, the failure of hope and change will be his only legacy.

But executive amnesty proves this president wants to tear away at the unifying fabric that is a great country — its Constitution.

This document is being mocked and ignored by a president sworn to uphold it.

Congress has taken the “nobody here but us chickens” approach to keeping a check on executive overreach.

Either the Constitution survives the Obama executive action on amnesty or the U.S. risks devolving further into just another sick, bloated, welfare state where an all powerful, hopelessly corrupt bureaucratic borg smothers what’s left of individual liberty.

On the foreign front, Obama boasts an impressive and growing string of failures.

But the latest impending policy debacle may be his crowning achievement — the nuclear power of Iran.

Consider this horrifying piece of irrefutable logic: why would Obama attempt to appease and cut deals with a country like Iran, which despises America, unless this president is in sympathy with the views of that country?

Let that sink in over your Thanksgiving turkey.

Such is the state of a great nation. Americans can’t rely on the newly invigorated Republican Party to do much but talk.

They think NOT opposing Obama won them their huge victory in the mid-terms.

And now, the GOP think acting like a doormat is a key to winning the presidency in 2016.

But by then, who knows what will be left of their country.

Still, Americans are in a rebellious mood.

Hold onto that, America. It may be all you’ve got left. There is still time to fight back.
