“We Held These Truths to be Self-Evident” … 236 Years Ago

Three and a half years ago, I wrote the following “satirical piece,” titled “Future Address by Barack Hussein Obama.” At the time, I hoped to awaken others to what was becoming apparent to me: the man (other) Americans voted into office had ulterior motives for our nation. Now, I fear that my little satire is closer to becoming TelePrompTer material for Mr. Obama – IF Americans fail to listen to the truth about him, his policies and learn about the damage he’s already done to our great nation.

Granted, getting accurate, unsullied news is a more difficult task during this election given the prevalent bias and interference by the Media on behalf of Obama campaign. Still there are voices that dare to speak the truth and draw aside the curtains of deceit to shine a light on the facts. Social media outlets and bloggers are determined to help the People make up their own minds, without manipulation, as to the veracity of the revelations by using their virtual podiums to share their knowledge and opinions.  

Unfortunately, it seems that in our attention-deficit nation, too many are willing to just glance at a headline or pay more attention to their like-minded tweeps or Facebook friends than open their eyes and ears to reality. Facing reality isn’t so hard – just look in your wallet after a trip to the gas station or grocery store, ask an unemployed friend if she thinks that life has improved since January 2009. Do you know anyone who has or is about to lose a home? Are they better off? Ask the homeowner whose can’t sell her house because it has radically decreased in value since Mr. Obama assumed the Oval Office.

Perhaps, Readers, you’re one of those 23 million unemployed Americans. You may, nostalgically, remember that, under the oft-maligned Bush administration, the average unemployment rate was 5.3 % and increased to 6.8 % during the economic meltdown during the last days of his presidency. Mr. Obama failed in his promise to decrease unemployment: our current rate is 8.1% [only lowered due to more people giving up on finding a job] and we’ve had 43 straight months of negative jobs reports.

There is no way to spin a fundamental truth: Mr. Obama’s regime is a failure in all aspects. Can anyone honestly believe we can expect any improvement in his dismal record by giving him four more years? That’s a risky bet and America is in a poor position to gamble, certainly not with one in seven Americans unemployed, the loss of our AAA credit ratings, $16 trillion debt, a foreign “policy” in shambles … and that’s just, as they say, for starters.

America is more than just real estate; it is a concept, an ideal, a beacon of democracy and a promise of freedom. Let’s not change the concept of what America “is” to “was.”

The Bold Pursuit unequivocally endorses the only candidate with the skills, experience (a job creator – approximately 100,000 jobs via Bain Capital, Private Equity), leadership (a former Governor, President/CEO of 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics Committee) and integrity. Mitt Romney’s entire life is one of remarkable achievements. There’s real hope, not Mr. Obama’s bogus variety, that Gov. Romney’s greatest achievement would be his presidency.

When you vote, vote smart so that may I archive the following blog as just as an unfulfilled threat.

The Bold Pursuit found its name in a quote by Thomas Jefferson “I was bold in the pursuit of knowledge, never fearing to follow truth and reason to whatever results they led …”

On November 6 … Be Bold, Be Fearless and Find the Truth.

Barack Obama – Future State of the Union Address? It’s up to us on November 6.

My fellow citizens, today I want to discuss a sensitive, but vastly overdue issue regarding the celebrated paperwork which gave a few power hungry individuals the right, in their minds, to overthrow a genial government and entrench themselves firmly in this place we call “America.”

The intellect and zeal of this country’s “Founding Fathers” was the driving force when the rebellious Colonies, in a rude and ungrateful manner, sought to sever ties with their homeland and a beloved King and his Parliament. King George, who was, as we all will agree, right in his opinion that the government must tax the people to make them feel included in their government, a fair and tolerant leader.

It is important to remember that our nation’s first “leaders” acted illegally to create a new world order on the shores of a country that was, before the arrival of a few land-grabbing and disease-ridden white people, the rightful home of peaceful and generous Native Americans.

The “pilgrims,” more aptly called belligerent ex-pats, disembarked on these shores still clinging to their muskets and whining about “freedom of religion.” Their humble indigenous hosts shared the wealth of their bounty to keep these malcontents from starving through their first season on foreign soil. The pilgrims showed their appreciation by introducing the Indians to the business end of a musket and infecting them with sexually transmitted diseases. I’m certain that if those innocent Indians had any idea of how their hospitality would be repaid, they would have told the Pilgrims to go get “stuffed” – like a turkey.

After many years, the interlopers from Great Britain were able to thoroughly ensconce themselves on this land, arrogantly laid claim to it and went about decimating many tribes of native people. The British government sought to control these unruly trespassers by establishing a governing body to oversee the collection of taxes and administer the rule of law. However, the desire of corrupt colonials for domination and control was overwhelming; thus began the riots and eventual revolt.

As you know, the violent deeds of the Rebellion were legitimized by the so-called “Declaration of Independence” – a manuscript penned by rebels that gave license to their sympathizers to do great harm to any who stood in the way of their “cause.”

One must acknowledge the enduring impact of the so-called “Founding Fathers” and their propaganda. Even today, the indoctrination of adoration of their antique rules and regulations is taught to society’s most impressionable and innocent citizens: our children. Mere toddlers are coerced into memorizing and pledging allegiance to a piece of cloth which features bright red stripes – symbolic of the blood the trespassers freely and proudly shed in order to evict our benevolent British governance, as well as virtually annihilate the native inhabitants and rightful owners of this territory.

Every year on July 4th, Americans glamorize the terrorist bombings that took place during the upheaval of the presiding government by setting off elegant displays of fireworks. Those ancient acts of violence are further trumpeted in an awkwardly phrased composition, “The Star-Spangled Banner.” This anthem commemorates those riots and pays tribute to the survival of the flag, that blood-drenched rag and the chosen emblem of the new nation.

The acts of brutality and entitlement that we glorify in song and vows are almost without equal; history remembers few individuals with such a brazen gluttony for power. Alexander the Great, Adolf Hitler and Attila the Hun would have been comfortable in the company of Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, Benjamin Franklin and the other conspirators of the so-called “American Revolution.”

We find ourselves, today, still bowing and scraping before faded scraps of antiquity; the aforementioned Declaration and the Bill of Rights; pieces of parchment filled with the egotistical rantings of men (where were the women?) who lusted for control, influence and privilege. Dogmatists such as John and Samuel Adams, William Whipple and Caesar Rodney wrote well, so history anointed them with praise for their penmanship (note: John Hancock – his name is a synonym for elegant script).

It is fair to call these radicals usurpers and bigots; after all, they were British citizens in residence upon land that was inhabited by many tribes of indigenous people.

This country’s original residents lived amicably in communal groups. As a former community organizer, I can appreciate the way these “true” Americans lived and worked together for the greater good of the group. If we look to the past for a blueprint for American life, one can do no better than to emulate tribal life and its focus on sharing its tasks, as well as wealth with each member, equally.

However, this is a new day and a new, progressive and genial America. While many still worship the fading scratches of the feathered quills of early supremacists, I believe it is time for these United States to be released from the emotional bondage of words written almost three hundred years ago and begin a new chapter of history, one which addresses the collective needs of our society.

I hereby authorize the formation of a committee to analyze our economic and social organizations, evaluate the efficacy of our current distribution of goods, capital and compensation and create a document that defines the fundamental aspects of our hard-working populace.

This new American manuscript will not reside in a museum or place of worship; it will be available to all, taught to our children in schools and stocked in every library, coast to coast. I encourage all citizens to keep a copy in their homes – even upon one’s person for reference and contemplation.

I envision our new codex of community involvement and civil obedience as a practical guide for American life. I know you’ll support me in this endeavor to create a manual for a kind and fair America; one that doesn’t praise the efforts of insurrectionists or religious fanatics, but acknowledges the importance of working together and sharing our wealth.

As we continue to rectify and apologize for the mistakes of the past and look toward a more appreciative America, other changes must be made to atone for past indiscretions. For example, to reflect this country’s new emphasis on fairness and focus on wealth management, the Capitol Building will be renamed the “Worker’s Representation Convention Center.”

Let me conclude today’s address with one more task: my next act as your president will likely be difficult for the older, less productive generation of American’s to accept, however, in order for this country to start a new era of contrition and healing, we must part ways with the past and discard the term “United States of America.” Too many people associate that name with rebellious acts, terrorism and persecution, in fact, the mere mention of the name “United States,” is cause for aggravation, resentment and unhappiness for foreigners around the world. Henceforth, this country is the “Collective Republics of the Northern Hemisphere” (CRNH).

May the fictitious deity of your choice approve of our Collective Republics of the Northern Hemisphere!
