In a recent discussion about the current state of affairs in America, I came to the realization that our current administration’s power stems, almost entirely, from two things: the mass media and the fact that true American patriots are spread out across the country, with no easy way of uniting together. I firmly believe that without these two things, President Obama and Co. would have no power to continue to ravage the Constitution and exercise their tyrannical government.
Mass media, in today’s world, essentially controls much of the American populace, through manipulation and sleight of hand. By choosing what news to report, as well as how to report it, they manipulate the American people like puppets. It goes without saying, then, that these same media sources would be an incredible ally to anybody who shares their extremist agenda. Due to his extremely liberal views, President Barack Obama is naturally the perfect man for such a job. Together, over the last five years, and even longer, Obama and the mass media have shaped the “news” that is reported, in order to ensure that it serves to promote their cause.
One conspicuous example of this method of picking and choosing what the public hears is the recent argument over gun control. They have used the horrible shootings in Aurora, CO, and New Town, CT, as a driving force in their unconstitutional push for extreme gun control. However, these same news outlets conveniently failed to mention the fact that, three days later, an off-duty police officer foiled a would-be mass-murderer in San Antonio, TX; or the shooting at an Oregon mall, where the murderer was stopped by a citizen with a concealed carry permit. Or, a few years ago in TN, when armed Sullivan Central High School security officer Carolyn Gudger held a gunman at bay until police arrived. The only casualty was the gunman, who was shot by police officers after refusing to lay down his gun. The overwhelming majority of Americans has never heard of any of these and many other stories of good, correct uses of our Second Amendment rights. The reason why is obvious: the liberal media chooses what to show the American people. The liberal media chooses what many Americans think and believe.
The other source of Obama’s power, while less obvious, is equally important: the lack of unity among true, red-blooded Americans. This is not to say that we are not united in a common goal, a common frame of mind, but rather that the physical separation is where the trouble lies. We see what is happening to our country, and yet we cannot act on it. After all, what can one, five, even ten people do to change a country? As the saying goes, there is strength in numbers. If there were some way, then, for the millions of American patriots to organize a resistance against an unconstitutional regime, imagine the power we would wield. Imagine the difference we could make.
