Madonna of today

Lord Acton (1834-1902), English historian, poignantly referred to his unfinished lifework - a history of liberty - as "The Madonna of the Future." The future is today when we have literally the corrupt Madonna and figuratively the corruption of American liberty by liberal, Democrat party, represented by their liberal/socialist candidate for President, Barack Obama. Liberalism, according to Acton, "wishes for what ought to be, irrespective of what is"... and what is "is essentially revolutionary." Obama’s liberalism revolts against conservatism. He claims to represent hope and change. Obama hopes to perfect our culture and society, molding America to his distorted conception of humanity by using governmental imposition into every aspect of our lives. His would be the ultimate power play aimed to level the playing fields of aspiration and achievement. He would diminish America’s power in the world and at the same time avoid disapproval from any other powerful nation. Acton, as a student of history, observed that "constant and invariable forces will resist the truth and the Higher Purpose" ... "weakness, division, excess, will damage the better cause. The splendid plausibility of error, the dazzling attractiveness of sin ... by what adjustment to inferior motives good causes succeed. .... History is not a web woven with innocent hands. Among all the causes which degrade and demoralize men, power is the most constant and the most active." Barack Obama’s arrogance and his party’s quest for power should scare any sane American witless. Liberalism and its goals are essentially revolutionary because they ignore reality’s natural inequalities as well as a true democracy’s need for justice, morality and common sense. Obama’s vision of America, however, focuses on disappointment, guilt and pessimism. He continually exposes the smallness of his socialist ideas and plans. As the Messiah, Obama preaches hope and change which are merely masks hiding the imps of repression and business-as-usual in Washington. His power play, unfortunately, has seduced 25% of American citizens who would vote for hope and change.
