Ain't That a Shame!

That's the popular song made famous by Fats Domino in the 1950's, but the title has pertinence today as to what is gong on as our culture has come under attack by progressives (a/k/a liberals).

Within the last few years, we've seen one tradition after another come under attack by the progressives and in its place, laws have been enacted and court decisions have been reached making prevailing morality and social order the enemy and instituting a “feel good” anything goes mentality on how we should conduct our affairs.

This assault on our traditional values began in the 1960's when we passed legislation declaring a “War on Poverty”. The good intentions of helping the poor morphed into a plan to take from the successful in our society (a/k/a the rich) and give to the less than successful by means of “income redistribution”. Instead of helping the poor better themselves, and after spending over $15 trillion since 1965, we have seen no marked improvement of the poor except that they have become more dependent upon the government for their everyday sustenance. In addition, the “War on Poverty” laws have had had deleterious effect upon the family, especially among the black community where over 70% of all black births are to single women without a father at home. The social consequences of this is now being manifested in the increase of criminal activity in that social class. Children growing up in a one-parent fatherless home are many times more prone to drop out of school, indulge in petty crime as youngsters, get involved in gangs, and finally leading up to become adult criminals. As Fats Domino would say, “Ain't That A Shame”.

Look around, what do you see? Drug use is being legalized in many states and just lately we've had a couple of U.S. Supreme Court decisions that have turned our Constitution on its head, Those decisions were not based on constitutional law, but was based on the emotions of those judges own personal viewpoints and interpretations of what the law they thought it meant not what the law actually meant.

Finally, there is a concerted assault on our Judeo Christian heritage. Members of the media, academics, gays, Democrat Party, and race baiters like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, have banded together to undo hundreds of years of traditions, traditions that have made the U.S.A. the greatest country and the envy of the the world. Remember, in 2008, Barack Obama said that, if elected, he would “transform America”. Now, 6 1/2 years into his presidency you can see that he is trying to fulfill his promise of total transformation. Will he succeed? It all depends on the electorate in 2016 whether common sense will prevail or will we fall further into the abyss of Marxism/Socialism which Obama and the Democrats (including Hillary Clinton) are offering up. If they succeed, then Fats Domino's song of “Ain't That a Shame” will be the cry of American patriots as the USA slowly slips into what happened in the demise of the Roman Empire. “Ain't That a Shame”.

Our country is going to hell in a hand basket and many people (mainly liberals) don't realize it because of their loyalty to a political ideology is based on Marxism/Socialism. The Democrat chairwoman, Debbie Wasserman-Shultz was asked about the difference between a Democrat and a Socialist, she couldn't answer the question. The answer is - there is no difference. If the electorate elects any of the Democrats they will be signing the death warrant for our country. We can't afford 4 more years of Obamaism. We are America not the Soviet Union.
