The progressive movement's Fred Astaire
By Michael Moriarty
America knowingly and willfully crossed a major moral divide when the Supreme Court's Roe v Wade decision virtually legalized murder.
That was in 1973.
Now, 36 years later, we have a totally pro-choice monopoly within all four estates of government: the executive, judicial, legislative and the press. The President himself and his team members, particularly Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner, are the most radically Marxist leadership in the history of America.
Why should we be surprised? Marxism is now really no more "un-American" than legalized abortion.
Can you not see how these two, abortion and Marxism, are inextricably linked to each other? In a sense, you cannot have the requisite ruthlessness of Marxism without the cold-blooded heartlessness and calculated euphemisms of Roe v Wade and its torturously rationalized legalization of murder.
For the first two trimesters there is no human being there?
With those kinds of distinctions one can be persuaded - by another kind of Progressive thinking - that Jews, gypsies and gays are also not human beings.
The American Marxists are best known as Progressives. Karl Marx himself considered his economic theories a "Science" and we know how Progressives love and defend "Science" because of … well … its "Progress". Progressives have no problem wending their way, sometimes quite gracefully, through moral swamps.
Speaking of Marxists, let us not forget that Stalin was one of Hitler's two best friends at the beginning of World War II, the other being Mussolini whose domestic body count can hardly compare with "Uncle Joe's".
Once America eliminated the obvious effects of one form of pleasure-seeking, this nation blinded its citizens to the ultimate price of all unfettered and irresponsible pleasure-seeking, from sex to drug addiction. Such irresponsibility feeds directly into America's surrender to a Marxist state. When a country's citizens cannot and will not take personal responsibility, then the government will step in and take control of individual freedom.
Not learning the hard way, having a "bailout plan" for everything, considering and legalizing alternatives such as abortion, these all lead to institutionalizing the very Marxist solution we now euphemistically call a "Stimulus Plan".
In short, not paying the price for your actions, having a Marxist government help you to avoid both pregnancy and bankruptcy with bailout abortions and abortive bailouts, reveal the Obama stimulus package for what it is: one huge, all-encompassing abortion.
All, of course, at your tax-paying expense.
AIG, Fanny and Freddy became pregnant with debt.
Face the reality of the "baby" you created and if the marketplace won't bail you out, don't expect the taxpayer to save you.
Deliver the truth in an agony rather like childbirth and go bankrupt.
Remember your mistakes and don't repeat them.
Bankruptcy, rather like the children of pregnancy, might even help you to grow up, might end up being the best thing that ever happened to you.
But, oh no, these organizations are "too big to fail!!"
There are women, millions, who think they are "too important to deliver the child they've conceived".
Apparently, the Presidency, at least in President Obama's mind, is now "too big a job to fail at" even though Marxist economics has absolutely nothing to do with the original dreams of our Founding Fathers.
How did he get as far as the White House with so much Marxist philosophy in him?
He's the Progressive Movement's Fred Astaire, and he'll dance circles around you, shooting impressive "three-pointers" from the corner, while at the same time he's picking your pockets.
However, our financial loss will be nothing compared to the price we will eventually pay for the inhumanity of Progressive abortion, euthanasia and embryonic stem cell research.
