    EXCELLENT ARTICLE. NEVER EVER WOULD I HAVE THOUGHT THIS WOULD COME OUT OF ASPEN ,

    Barack Obama has awakened a sleeping nation
    Gary Hubbell
    Aspen Times Weekly February 2010



    Barack Obama is the best thing that has happened to America in the last 100 years. Truly, he is the savior of America 's future.

    Despite the fact that he has some of the lowest approval ratings among recent presidents, history will see Barack Obama as the source of America 's resurrection. Barack Obama has plunged the country into levels of debt that we could not have previously imagined; his efforts to nationalize health care have been met with fierce resistance nationwide; TARP bailouts and stimulus spending have shown little positive effect on the national economy; unemployment is unacceptably high and looks to remain that way for most of a decade; legacy entitlement programs have ballooned to unsustainable levels, and there is a seething anger in the populace.

    That's why Barack Obama is such a good thing for America . Here's why.

    Obama is the symbol of a creeping liberalism that has infected our society like a cancer for the last 100 years. Just as Hitler is the face of fascism, Obama will go down in history as the face of unchecked liberalism. The cancer metastasized to the point where it could no longer be ignored.

    Average Americans who have quietly gone about their lives, earning a paycheck, contributing to their favorite charities, going to high school football games on Friday night, spending their weekends at the beach or on hunting trips - they've gotten off the fence. They've woken up. There is a level of political activism in this country that we haven't seen since the American Revolution, and Barack Obama has been the catalyst that has sparked a restructuring of the American political and social consciousness.

    Think of the crap we've slowly learned to tolerate over the past 50 years as liberalism sought to re-structure the America that was the symbol of freedom and liberty to all the people of the world. Immigration laws were ignored on the basis of compassion. Welfare policies encouraged irresponsibility, the fracturing of families, and a cycle of generations of dependency. Debt was regarded as a tonic to lubricate the economy. Our children left school having been taught that they are exceptional and special, while great numbers of them cannot perform basic functions of mathematics and literacy. Legislators decided that people could not be trusted to defend their own homes, and stripped citizens of their rights to own firearms. Productive members of society have been penalized with a heavy burden of taxes in order to support legions of do-nothings who loll around, reveling in their addictions, obesity, indolence, ignorance and "disabilities." Criminals have been arrested and re-arrested, coddled and set free to pillage the citizenry yet again. Lawyers routinely extort fortunes from doctors, contractors and business people with dubious torts.

    We slowly learned to tolerate these outrages, shaking our heads in disbelief, and we went on with our lives.

    But Barack Obama has ripped the lid off a seething cauldron of dissatisfaction and unrest.

    A former Communist is given a paid government position in the White House as an advisor to the president. Auto companies are taken over by the government, and the auto workers' union - whose contracts are completely insupportable in any economic sense - is rewarded with a stake in the company. Government bails out Wall Street investment bankers and insurance companies, who pay their executives outrageous bonuses as thanks for the public support. Terrorists are read their Miranda rights and given free lawyers. And, despite overwhelming public disapproval, Barack Obama has pushed forward with a health care plan that would re-structure one-sixth of the American economy.

    Literally millions of Americans have had enough. They're organizing, they're studying the Constitution and the Federalist Papers, they're reading history and case law, they're showing up at rallies and meetings, and a slew of conservative candidates are throwing their hats into the ring. Is there a revolution brewing? Yes, in the sense that there is a keen awareness that our priorities and sensibilities must be radically re-structured. Will it be a violent revolution? No. It will be done through the interpretation of the original document that has guided us for 220 "FANTASTIC" years--- the Constitution. Just as the pendulum swung to embrace political correctness and liberalism, there will be a backlash, a complete repudiation of a hundred years of nonsense. A hundred years from now, history will perceive the year 2010 as the time when America got back on the right track. And for that, we can thank Barack Hussein Obama.

    Your link to the Aspen Times doesn't work for me. I wish it did, I'd like to send it around.

    I agree 110%!

    I have been expressing my opinion that this POSPOTUS has done more for the conservative movement than the McCain/Palin ticket ever could have done.

    I really believe that Obama has "almost" single-handedly assurred that conservatism will be alive & well within our government for years to come.

    In the conservative mind, yes, but there are still too many liberals and sheep out there to send a clear message. The spin doctor's will yet have their day. I would bet as we get closer to election time. We've had too many generation's of disenfranchisement and egocentric life to have a revolution at the voting booth. And politicians on both sides of the aisle have learned how to use the public's apathy and lack of factual knowledge to effectively lie their way into office. IMHOP what would best galvanize our nation into drastic action is a "good" war. One that we have the resolve to win, decisively and finally. One where apathy and liberalism will get you killed. At first I thought 911 might be the spark, but then our clueless, gutless leaders thought it would appease the terrorists to build a mosque on the site and poof, back to square one.:mad:

    You're right on there Geezer.
    What people don't realize is apathy & liberalism will ALWAYS lead to death and destruction.

    As to our gutless leaders, 911 & the war on terror, I like the Alan West approach.

    Could also be termed to be the frog in the pot of cold water that woke up like the frog in the hot water.. We can only hope.

    We must realize that on these (gun related) websites at least 1/3 of posters voted for Obama and in my state for the two US senators. We have a US senate vote coming up in 2012.. I dont have a good feeling about getting rid of her, she truely deserves it. The fact that I dont have a good feeling, I mean I have just about zero confidence that it will occur. They are in bed with all the unions and get strong support from them..
