There have been far too many statements lately claiming that a re-election of President Obama will be the finish of the United States. This is, obviously, hogwash. There is no basis for such paranoid and inflammatory claims. None whatsoever unless one is somehow persuaded by manipulated and completely distorted inventions of some tortured minds.
This country is a very long way from giving up its traditional form of government no matter who is elected. We remain a country of law administered by thousands if not millions of dedicated public servants in every state and in our capital. To believe, let alone suggest, that a radical takeover is plausible only reveals the deterioration of the claimant’s irrational mind. It is the same kind of malaise in thinking revealed in claims the government intentionally murdered innocent people in Aurora, Colo. in order to advance a gun control agenda.
These frightful distortions might possibly be shoved back under the rocks where they originate except for the worrisome comparison to the times of Abraham Lincoln. Then, as now, a rabid irrational small group of fervent anti-government miscreants decided that their future was unthinkable under a newly elected president. The dastardly actions they took then to promote their narrow, misguided thinking is, perhaps, perilously close to repeating itself.
God protect us from such a fate.
