'The night we waved goodbye to America'

Peter Hitchens in The Mail Online:

"The United States, having for the most part a deeply conservative people, had until now just about stood out against many of the mistakes which have ruined so much of the rest of the world.

"Suspicious of welfare addiction, feeble justice and high taxes, totally committed to preserving its own national sovereignty, unabashedly Christian in a world part secular and part Muslim, suspicious of the Great Global Warming panic, it was unique.

"These strengths had been fading for some time, mainly due to poorly controlled mass immigration and to the march of political correctness. They had also been weakened by the failure of America’s conservative party – the Republicans – to fight on the cultural and moral fronts.

"They preferred to posture on the world stage. Scared of confronting Left-wing teachers and sexual revolutionaries at home, they could order soldiers to be brave on their behalf in far-off deserts. And now the US, like Britain before it, has begun the long slow descent into the Third World. How sad.

"Where now is our last best hope on Earth?"

A little hyperbolic and alarmist, perhaps, but with the ring of truth, eventually, I'm thinking.

Peter, my friend, not even America can stem the tide of non-think going on, anymore. All we can do is preserve reason, somehow, some way (I really am starting to think John Galt-style enclaves).

Dear Eowyn:

Hey, great Hitch piece on the Obama win for Marxism. Just surgical. Yep, the dominant elites and mindset are just as stupid and fake in Australia. What can ya do? Something er...ineffective!

All the best from Colonel Neville.

The Ministry of Truth is in full swing, from the sounds of things -- heard recently that Obamanites are fanning out everywhere searching not only for dirt on their Deity, but on anyone connected with the upcoming administration.

And so it goes.
