A Tale Of Two Campaigns
March 19, 2012
By Rev. Michael Bresciani
In the 2008 election, the slogan ‘Change we can believe in’ carried the willing like the mind- bending smooth and seamlessly executed arpeggios of the Pied Piper. When the followers got weary they were egged on by other familiar tunes like the promise of ‘transparency’ and a new America where everyone would finally be treated equally.
Three years later these little mice are all neatly separated into classes where confusion and disappointment are second only to the state of unbelief that follows a change that actually – no one can honestly believe in.
Heading toward the 2012 race the slogans of ‘08 seem to have met up with the new kid on the political scene - the acronym, now well known as - ABO. Even as candidates begin to drop off and out of the GOP effort the remaining candidates have little fear that some write in, or a shift toward the incumbent could upset their chances.
The ABO (Anyone but Obama) acronym may have surpassed the slogans of 2008 in potency, purpose and palatability – the electorate is fairly fed up with the flutist who now occupies the White House and they want a return to the days of the full symphony with a true American maestro at the podium.
The urgency to switch from the promised ‘change’ back to something more recognizable is like the story of the Pied Piper who later was not satisfied to lead the mousey mesmerized minions to the edge of town, but he came back for the children.
There is little doubt that it is the little ones who are taking the worst beating from the Obama Administration. The promise of a united people has obviously proved to be the greatest period of division and discontent in our history. The mice so easily entertained by music and slogans have been transformed into dogs, chained, hungry and denied.
Now there are occupiers, the one percent, the entitled, the mandated, and the bailed out, the bummed out and last but not least the next generation of children who are saddled with 14 trillion dollars’ worth of debt. These we might call the ‘debted’ out (my word). But it doesn’t end there for the kids.
Instead of putting an end to 4,000 abortions per day Barack Obama has declared that our daughters can now have the same chance at financial success as our sons, because Roe v. Wade is still in place and doing well. If about half of the aborted are females, then what are their chances for success and why has he not included them with his daughters?
Then along comes Attorney General Eric Holder with clear instructions from Mr. Obama not to defend DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act). In a nation already plagued with fatherless families now we are asking children to endure the confusion of two fathers or two mothers, an experiment in social tinkering that is miserably failing according to studies.
Those who oppose such perversion are called ‘hate’ groups or homophobes, such as actor Kirk Cameron. In as much as they may hate perversion (even though they don’t hate people) the name may fit, but it is in fact ignorant to assume that their love for the next generation is hatred. Our children’s future is far too high a price to pay for this administration’s Dalian, dubious, demonic and just plain dumb view of society. If children are at stake, then who cares what Mr. Obama thinks?
Who would have thought that America would have to wait over 230 years for someone to properly interpret the Declaration of Independence for us all? Barack Obama has now cleared away the fog. Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness is better enjoyed if it is applied to an elect few at the expense of others (the unborn) who can be disregarded, dismissed and fully discarded as an unwanted hindrance to our own financial well-being.
As these helpless, but perfectly healthy human beings are discarded all in the name of ‘women’s health’ it is apparent that Mr. Obama has also discarded the meaning of our founders and our philosophers including 17th –century philosopher Richard Cumberland who said, “Promoting the well-being of our fellow humans is essential to the pursuit of our own happiness.”
Next down the road are academicians whose fear of illiteracy has all but vanished, only to be replaced by the deductions of the digitally dopey, texting, tweeters and twits who are convinced their ancient venerable progenitors were monkeys.
With fully powered G-4 handhelds with thousands of apps to titillate what’s left of brain cells that escaped the medical marijuana, college drinkathons and academic sandwich of rare meat between two pieces of bread marked interstellar space dreams and Darwinian pipe dreams, the profs and instructors are leading the way on the west coast. Lawmakers there will not be outdone by the academicians and yet more help for the kids is now on the way.
California’s SB48 is coming into full swing now - those children who escaped the scalpel and burning salts of the abortionist are having their best childhood years blasted with images of sexual deviance and perversion all in the name of ‘education.’ This is mandated all the way down to kindergarten.
Drugs are being pumped through underground tunnels in San Diego; Tinsel Town trash is steadily raining on America in a deluge from leftist sell-outs of Hollywood and public nudity and just about anything else the imagination can conjure is perfectly okay in San Francisco; but don’t worry, they won’t allow their children to miss that all-important sex education and gay history class. Up until now we thought the threat of a very serious earthquake was the only drawback to living in the beautiful Golden State. For children living in California, an 8.5 Richter reading may be the least of their worries.
Who could have guessed that a president would get involved with the sexual revolution and become the champion of the gays? When the sixties sexual revolution began the actors in that slippery slide altogether thought it was cool to wear talismans around their necks. The omega symbol (last days), roach clips, peace symbols, sex, drugs and rock and roll messages and a plethora of huge indicators of open rebellion were worn. Who could foresee that it would end with another talisman that no one will really want to wear in this life or the next.
“But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.” (Mt 18: 6)
The unborn and the youngsters of this nation may not have much of a voice in the upcoming election but my guess is that if they did, they would reject more - ‘Change we can believe in’ and heartily choose the acronym - ‘Anyone but Obama.’
