Out of this turmoil there emerged a powerful body of left-wing opinion and activism that turned the old national consensus upside down.After a night that began with the Democrat Party nominating Sens. Barack Obama and Joe Biden as their President and Vice President choices for the November general election the night culminated in Sen. Obama vowing that Democrats would take America back.

Rejecting Henry Clay’s “my country - right or wrong,” the left substituted “my country - always wrong.” More extreme elements declared their country to be the most oppressive society in history - racist at home and imperialist abroad - while discovering sublime virtues in genocidal tyrants from Mao Tse-Tung to Pol Pot.
While this raging ideological virus infected in varying degree a wide range of American institutions - e.g. media, academia - its principal victim was the national Democratic Party.—William Maloney
Obama’s statement came in a surprise appearance at the National Democrat convention after speeches from former President Bill Clinton and Obama’s pick for Vice President Joe Biden.
But where is this mystical magical time and place which Liberal Democrats who call themselves Progressives wish to take America back to?
In his The Europeanization of the Democrat Party William Maloney brilliantly and succinctly diagnoses the Democrat Party’s threat to take America back. (see story)
Maloney recants that, [In less than a decade the party that boldly sponsored the Berlin airlift, the Marshall Plan, and the NATO alliance went from the confident activism of the hawkish John Kennedy - “pay any price, bear any burden to assure the success of liberty” - to the “Blame America First” defeatism of George McGovern - who aptly themed his 1972 acceptance speech as “Come Home, America.”
Betraying allies in Vietnam, ignoring genocide in Cambodia, accepting communist aggression from Angola to Afghanistan, and bowing to humiliation in Iran, America’s defense of liberty abroad was reduced to Carter’s pathetic gesture of boycotting the Moscow Olympics.
The sorry Democratic mismanagement of both economic and foreign policy led to a series of landslide Republican presidential victories and finally a decade of GOP congressional dominance. Yet, amazingly, none of these severe reality checks halted the Democrats' steady leftward drift.]
Maloney reminds America that there is no rosy Democrat future for America based on a time in the past where Democrats produced an American Narvanic experience.
There is only the prospect of America hating Liberals attempting to remake America into a nightmare of a dream. Not a Martin Luther King dream of living in Christian harmony but the nightmare of forcing America into the failed socio-economic policies of Europe.
Policies that even now Europe is attempting to cast off. This is where Democrat Liberals would take America back to if Democrats were elected in greater numbers in Congress and if Barack Obama were elected President. (see video)
America is not going back to a Democrat make believe fantasy, some Camelot that never existed not as long as the other half of the country joined by Independents have a say in this election.
2000 and 2004 failed to wake Democrats from their delusions about America and the American people but saying no to Barack Obama and the Democrat Party in 2008 sends a strong message that the American people will not taken in by the rhetoric and pretense of Democrat play acting.
The America people will not allow Democrats to “take America back” to never, never land, its time for Democrats to end the self delusion about Europe and come back to the American family!
It's time Democrats offer some real choices instead of false hope and false woman's rights advocates.
It's time Democrats quit talking down America it is time Democrats stop talking down the economy and it is time Democrats stop apologizing to Europe for America's protection of Europe and for America's rebuilding of Europe after World War II.
Most of all it time that Democrats stop seeking leadership under false pretenses, false change and false Messiahs.
