I received this in an email the other day, it is quite interesting, I am not all that sure of the validity of it, so take it with a grain of salt. The writer of this essay is Jerry Molen, an Academy Award winning Hollywood Producer, who produced Jurassic Park, Hook, Rain Man and many more classy movies, and who won the Academy Award for Schindler’s List. Jerry is one of the very few conservatives in Hollywood but wants to include Democrats.
We are about to make the Mother-of-All-Mistakes, because the Republican Party gave us no reliable alternative. If the conservative movement does not rally behind the only alternative left to us, this country will become a true Socialist State within the next two Presidential terms.
Ladies and Gentleman, this is the most grave situation this nation has faced in my lifetime. We just experienced an over-hyped, outrageous primary election season that has left me wondering where the heads of our citizens are hiding must be someplace where the sun doesn’t go very often.
At one time in my life I was a determined, dedicated and ever-loyal, registered Democrat. Then something happened – Lyndon Baines Johnson – that turned my life around and gave me pause for the veracity of a party that lives and feeds off of the most unfortunate among us. Some of them are in their positions in life by their own choosing, others by outside circumstance. But always, always there was a door open to them, to reach for new heights, achieve new goals, change their lives for the better.
Similarly, there have always been the bottom feeders, doing what they could to take advantage of those who had not or have not seen better days, nor realized that they, in fact, were the masters of their own destiny; and these unfortunates had come to believe that they were dependent on people in Washington who would look out for and take care of them. They waited and still wait for all those promised freebies.
Most people don’t reflect upon the fact that the Democrats ruled Washington for over 40 years; it wasn’t until 1994 when the so-called Gingrich Revolution changed it, but only for a while.
These same people do not realize that it was the Democrats who created the failed policies of the entitlement programs that are now falling apart before our eyes. Do not think I find the Republicans blameless in all this. They, too, suffer from the ego and greed built into our system. But in the past few months I have listened with growing horror to the railings of the left, calling for yet more giveaways, more promises of a proverbial ‘free lunch’.
What sums up my feelings, why I am appalled by those in political power is contained within a quote by basketball legend and talk show host Charles Barkley: Poor people have been voting for Democrats for the last fifty years….and they are still poor.
Now, with our elections, come yet more new promises of change: change we can believe in, hope for the future. But if you really, I mean REALLY listen to what the new messiah is asking for, it is not change of policy or change for the better – this is a warning that he wants our change. And the change you will get will not be the change you expected or wanted.
I leave you my predictions of what will happen if the junior Senator from Illinois becomes President especially if the House and Senate are veto-proof Democrat:
1. Strict gun laws, though he promised he would not.
2. ‘In God We Trust ‘ will be removed from all currency.
3. He will renege on his pledge to Israel and leave them to the wolves of Islam.
4. Hillary Clinton will be named to the Supreme Court.
5. Tax rates will surge to the highest levels in 30 years.
6. Capital gains tax will be at least double current levels.
7. Retired Army General Wesley Clark will be named Secretary of Defense.
8. Your borders will be open to all comers especially from the Middle East and South America.
9. Amnesty will be granted to all illegals in the U.S, regardless of status or even gang membership (think MS-13).
10 . Our presence in Iraq will come to an abrupt end with tragic results though their citizens and devastating consequences to our military.
My predictions will not sit well with some people – the best we could hope for is that I am wrong. Any bets?
