Goodbye to America?

Peter Hitchens
Anyone would think we had just elected a hip, skinny and youthful replacement for God, with a plan to modernise Heaven and Hell – or that at the very least John Lennon had come back from the dead.

The swooning frenzy over the choice of Barack Obama as President of the United States must be one of the most absurd waves of self-deception and swirling fantasy ever to sweep through an advanced civilisation. At least Mandela-worship – its nearest equivalent – is focused on a man who actually did something.
–Peter Hitchens, Mail Online
So says Peter Hitchens of the United Kingdom. These are sentiments which I wholeheartedly agree with. This world-wide Barack Hussein Obama adulation is eerily reminiscence of eschatological prophecy where all people will worship a certain one and become a one world government. (See story)

Hitchens states that to America’s detriment it has finally switched sides in a global cultural war by electing Barack Obama as President. He assesses that America, once uniquely a deeply conservative people, had not made the mistakes of socialism that had ruined the rest of the world. But now America is no different than the rest of the world by electing this unknown political Marxist Socialist
Proper books, recording his (Obama's) sordid associates, his cowardly voting record, his astonishingly militant commitment to unrestricted abortion and his blundering trip to Africa, are little-read and hard to find.

If you can believe that this undistinguished and conventionally Left-wing machine politician is a sort of secular saviour, then you can believe anything.
Finally Hitchens bemoans the fading sovereignty, the fading unabashed Christianity, the fading resistance to politically correct claims of Global warming all of these strengths are dimming from America.

But Hitchens’ most poignant observation was that Conservatives failed to fight for their traditions, they failed to fight for America.
They [American’s traditions and strengths] had also been weakened by the failure of America’s conservative party – the Republicans – to fight on the cultural and moral fronts.
And so at last, the bright shining light on the hill has faded and now it is at best a European satellite awaiting the new Euro-American President Barack Hussein Obama to join the “people of the world” and the United Nations in a Global world economy and Global tax system.
