For Americans, Failure is Not Inevitable

In a speech to the Heritage Foundation, Victor Davis Hanson said that “decline is a choice.” He’s right. As Americans, we can choose to do nothing and fade into a black hole or we can choose not to and come out even shinier and sharper.

We have been told for over 2 years, by this president that we are not exceptional, that we do not deserve the wealth (as a nation and as individuals) that we have earned. We see it in the movies and on television: we are not the good guys anymore. Americans are evil and greedy, we are gluttons, we are wasteful, fat and bloated.  This is the message we are hearing from our so-called leaders, from the celebrities that we (falsely) admire, and from the educators in academia whose salaries we pay.

This message is not new coming from teachers or celebrities – we’ve been hearing that for decades from those corners – but it is new coming from our nation’s leader.

It is new for Americans to see a president bow to monarchs. A president who not only feels submissive to the rest of the world but wants to make the nation so, as well. In his warped mind, he believes it. He’s not proud to be an American and as all Americans know, his wife has only once been proud to be one.

I believe that he is preparing us for the fall that he is creating. I believe that he wants us to feel unworthy of our place in the world so that when he ushers us into 3rd world status, we will be not only prepared but, feel deserving of that place.

The man who said he was going to be a unifier has divided us further. We are more polarized as a nation now, than since the Civil War. From his first missteps (“the police acted stupidly”) to his latest (“I’m here. Congress should stay here too” as he prepares for a weekend at Camp David and a vacation in Martha’s Vineyard and another round of golf on Sunday) he has proven himself to be completely out of touch with the people who put him there – and the people who didn’t put him there but who he represents.

Obama’s uplifting message (Yes We Can!) has become one of misery and depression. He’s produced a national gloom that we must shake off before we become forever mired in this depression.

We do not have to accept his vision of America in decline. It’s a choice. We must stand up and celebrate being citizens of the greatest nation and society mankind has ever known.

The time is now.

    Enjoy Independence Day Roxy.
    Old Glory is becoming more of a voice here lately.
    It is refreshing.

      Hope you and yours have a great day too VET! It’s high time that we return to the principles that has made America exceptional.

        Hey Roxy,…pay a visit to noone.
        She is sorting out the chaos that comes from a major move.
        Thank you Roxy for being a Great American.

    Good morning Roxy and Happy Independence Day to you and yours.

    What a masterful post you have put together here.

    I believe that he is preparing us for the fall that he is creating. I believe that he wants us to feel unworthy of our place in the world so that when he ushers us into 3rd world status, we will be not only prepared but, feel deserving of that place.

    You are dead on Roxy in that truer words were never spoken.

    As Progressives tell us and our children that they are not exceptional, it is up to us to inform them otherwise.

      Thanks D and thanks for the stop-by! I’m glad to see you again and hope you had a nice vacation. Hard to come home again, isn’t it?

      You know what they say: tell someone often enough that he is worthless and he starts believing it (or the reverse, that he is a worthwhile and wonderful human being.) That’s what the left has been doing to Americans for decades. Teachers, movies and culture as a whole has told us we are mean, wasteful and greedy. We have to fight back because none of that is true of Americans. We are charitable, we are the first to step up and help, we give more than any other nation, we rebuild what we destroy and we leave when we win and never take over anyone’s land.
      How are we possibly so bad?

      Happy 4th to you D! take care!

    Who would have ever believed we would one day have a President and First Lady who are ashamed of America. Well, I am ashamed of them. America deserves so much better.

    • roxannadanna

      It’s hard to believe that we have a communist in the WH. I keep asking myself how this could ever have happened…

  • Dena

    You have a great way of saying out loud what I’m thinking. Yes, we had better get it together for 2012. I don’t think I could stand it if those people have their way. What does it take for Americans to have this mental image that the United States is BAD and should be punished for it? What kind of mental disorder do they have that makes them think this way?

    Good Morning Roxanna 😀 This is an excellent find and very thought provoking. I shall re-post this over at the Village melady. Have a great 4th of July Weekend my friend.

    Back in the early 1990s, Nevada Sen. Richard Bryan spoke of America’s decline, of how the next generation would not live as well as the current generation. He dropped this talking point when Clinton was elected, but he was clearly full of it. The country had been charging forward after Reagan had been in office a couple of years, and except for a minor hiccup, that trend continued until 2007 or so.
    With the “right” leadership in the White House, Bryan’s prediction is coming true. The 2012 election is critical.
