There lies within the belly of this great nation a seed of discontent which, though dormant for decades, has begun to burrow through the soil of self concession and political correctness to once again aspire to its own place in the sun. The roots of this great discontent are  nestled in the great depression and were fueled by the societal changes of world war two and accelerated in the social, political and cultural upheaval of the decades following.

This nation with its government of appropriation has strayed far from the roots of individualism that provided the foundation upon which it has rested for over 230 years. Our society which has nurtured concession and correctness as our accepted way of life has overwhelmed our cumulative passion for greatness as a society and threatens the very core of our national being.

Our elected leadership remains focused on collective concessions and correctness in all things to the exclusion of individual freedom. At a time when our economy struggles with the highest unemployment in decades, a housing market in shambles and increased threats to our security by rogue governments and fanatical fundamentalism, our political leadership is diverting the national agenda to debates on health care and climate change.

 Our great national muscle is weak. Our intellect is being aborted by special interests and our national vitality is being usurped by a progressive movement whose sole purpose is to weaken and tarnish the American character.  However, across this land people are beginning to listen to the endless and myopic rhetoric that flows from Barack Obama and his progressive administration. They are beginning to recognise the shrill partisan and bitter rhetoric that flows like an endless stream of falsehoods from Nancy Pelosi. They are beginning to realize that the foolish and weak kneed comments from Harry Reid are a national embarrassment.

Americans are awakening with a desire for hope and change. Hope that is fomented by a desire to return this nation to its well earned place as a leader among nations. They are motivated by the hope that this nation will once again be known as the land of opportunity where the best and the brightest rise as a function of focus and effort as opposed to being legislated. They are filled with the hope that this nation will again be that nation which covets aspiration, as opposed to diminishing the human spirit. They seek change from the progressive yoke that has sought to strangle the very soul of our nation.

Americans are on the rise. They will not accept the constraints of national spirit imposed upon them by the cult of Barack Obama and his special interest collaborators,  but rather  will push the soil back to seek their own place in the sun where concessions are not made without equal gain and correctness is a sense of individual rights that blossom along the path toward greatness.

The passing of Senator Edward M. Kennedy the Liberal Lion of the Senate marks the end of an era in American politics. Teddy was the last visible link to the American public and the world at large to the politics of Camelot as portrayed by John and Jackie Kennedy at the beginning of the 1960’s. Much of the public in 1961 in America and across the world was enamored with the reign of the Kennedy’s a stylish youthful couple that ushered in an era of promise and great expectation.

The promise of the Kennedy reign would be cut short by the tragedy that haunted this uniquely American family with the assassination of President Kennedy and would be marred by the Bay of Pigs and his legacy in Vietnam would prove to become a powder keg of civil unrest as Americans became divided by a war in south east Asia whose purpose became inexplicable to a generation that believed the world could be annihilated with a push of a button.

As memoirs became public and tales were told the sanctity of the Kennedy reign became further marred by stories of illicit affairs with stars and starlets. Bobby Kennedy who became the heir apparrent to the Kennedy crown following the death of Jack  and the new liberal standard bearer for America  fell to an assassin’s bullet in 1968.

 Ted Kennedy was then expected to draw Excalibur from the rock and assume the mantle of the new leader of Camelot. It appeared until one fateful night on a bridge in Chappaquiddick, Massaachussetts that Ted would successfully reignite Camelot and assume the path to the Presidency. It was not to be as tragedy again enveloped the Kennedy clan. Ted Kennedy remained in the Senate for 47  years and will be long honored by his Democrat peers for his liberal agenda. During the 2008 election Senator Kennedy, dying of brain cancer, passed his liberal torch to Barack Obama when he endorsed Obama for President.

Obama, was the logical candidate for Kennedy to endorse given that the progressive liberal politics of Obama were closely aligned with the liberal politics of  Ted Kennedy. The Senior Senator from Massachusetts was an iconic figure in the Senate and the Democrat party, His passing will be well marked by his supporters. It is a great irony that at a time when the most liberal President to hold the office  is rapidly descending in the polls that an iconic symbol of the liberal left passes on.

The Kennedy name will long echo in the halls of American politics. The legacy of Camelot was the election of Barack Obama. A legacy that has resulted in a President whose policies have already proved as divisive to this nation as a war which raged in south east Asia at a time now believed to be a more innocent time in the world. A time when our enemy was the great Russian Bear. When Cuba and China were really Fidel and Mao. When Che was considered the ultimate revolutionary.

We grieve for the Senator’s passing and for his family not because we shared his political ideals but rather as we do for the loss of icons that have been visual benchmarks through our own passage of time. The Kennedy’s like it or not have been ever present for the last fifty years in the pop culture that has become our American politic.

It is unfortunate, that in this nation, seemingly complex issues are often reduced to something as simple as the color of ones skin. America possesses a well documented history of racial challenge throughout its evolution. The abhorrent nature of slavery and the subsequent impact on our national psyche has been discussed and debated throughout our nations history.

Though slavery was abolished nearly 150 years ago the nation remained a slave to its past through subsequent generations ruled by emotion and guilt and divided by ignorance and fear. Over time the social and economic barriers tumbled and equality of the races became more than a dream as equity was legislated and enforced.

Along the difficult and winding road toward equality America discovered that it could salve its guilt with entitlement programs which evolved in time to the creation of an entitlement class which ultimately spawned entitlement politics. Barack Obama is a product of entitlement politics. The application of disciplines learned in his own evolution through the path of entitlement resulted in his election to the nations highest political office. Barack Obama, was enabled by the liberal left and fueled by the organization of a voting bloc in which 97% of its members voted for him. Progressive apologists and long suffering minorities proved that through their unified support of the candidate for change that they could wield enough power to move America to a promised land where the politics of bipartisan hope and change would provide the foundation for a new enlightened path to entitlement.

In just a little more than six months into the Presidency of Barack Obama,  the nation has become more enlightened. The nation has become aware that campaigning on hope and change doesn’t actually portend hope and change by the then candidate and now President. The nation has learned that the candidate who advocated the advent of a new politic in America through the active embrace of bipartisanship was merely executing a ruse to gain support of the electorate. Barack Obama engenders the qualities of an astute elite progressive politician. He has shown a comfort level with the most liberal politics ever embraced by an American President.

His Presidency may also prove to be the most restrictive to Americans personal freedoms. Offered as evidence,  is a recent event inspired by Glenn Beck the extreme libertarian commentator on Fox news. Beck recently expressed his belief that Barack Obama was racist. An activist organization, the colorofchange.org,  found fault with Beck’s comments and decided to contact nearly 60 advertisers that sponsor programs on the Fox news and threatened a boycott by their membership of their products and services if the advertisers  elected to support the Glenn Beck show.

As of yesterday 33 advertisers had indicated they would not advertise on the Glenn Beck show. Ceo4aday is not a fan of the Glenn Beck show. We find Mister Beck to be more than a bit of an alarmist. However, we do believe that he is entitled to his constitutional right of free speech and that those who choose to advertise on his show do so,  not in support of a political statement but rather to reach a demographic that has chosen to watch and be entertained by Mister Beck.

We are increasingly alarmed by the organizations on the political left that would impede our right to free speech by exercising nazi like tactics that designed to inhibit the free expression of diverse political opinion. Colorof Change. org is another organization whose roots emanate from moveon.org the extreme left organization that continues to promote progressive issues through aggressive use of the Internet.

ColorofChange.org per its web site is committed to strengthening the political voice of Black Americans. By assuming the right to speak for Black Americans this organization is inherently threatening as it assumes the moral authority for a diverse people of varied cultural heritage. They would have us assume that the primary determinant in the social and political evolution of a people is the color of their skin. They would have us walk back through history rather than embrace a future where the mettle of an  individual is not measured by the color of their skin.

Change should not be about color. It should be about ideas and discourse where a free people are willing to express themselves with out fear of intimidation by an organization of progressive extremists that are quite content with threatening the livelihood of any one they choose to disagree with. If change does have a color it  is not black or white. It is grey. We are a blended nation. The time for coddling or entitlement as a product of race is past. We should embrace our individual cultural legacy as an element of our uniqueness not as a path toward entitlement.

The Democrat Party, led by Barack Obama and his progressive administration, have attempted to muzzle dissent by Americans with respect to the debate over health care reform. The irony of the Democrats accusing the Republican party of attempting to stifle debate by organizing dissent at various Town Hall meetings hosted by members of Congress, should not be lost on a public that observed organized dissent led by Democrat party organizers through out eight years of the Bush administration.

The Democrat Party is the party of organized special interest groups. It is a party led by a community organizer who used his skills to rally the Democrat community behind his candidacy and ultimately elect him President. It defies belief, that this party would choose to  cast aspersions upon those who do not support the progressive agenda of Barack Obama.

As Democrat  members of Congress hear dissent over health care vocalised by their constituents the Obama administration has elected to divert the attention away from the issue of Obamacare and turn the debate to the dissenters. Today, Nancy Pelosi in a USA Today opinion column written with House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer labeled dissent as un-American.

It is fitting that the progressive left is unable to fathom that the tactics they are famous for could be used against them. However, it is truly pathetic that Pelosi and Hoyer are unable to tolerate legitimate debate and concern over an agenda that is clearly changing the American dream to the American nightmare. Pelosi, the elitist simply can’t bear to believe that there are American who care to think and express dissent for no other reason than the fact that they disagree with a President and a Congress that are out of control.

Pelosi, in her attempt to stifle and misrepresent the Obamacare debate is un-American. Dissent is an  essential right in a Democracy. Liberals though true believers, do themselves a disservice when they narrow and divert the issue and become the progressive fascists of an Orwellian dream.

It is a great irony that Barack Obama, who is a true believer in his ability to guide and direct the American people to the progressive promise land of his vision is seeing his vision and agenda for America derailed by the very people he is dedicated to helping whether or not they are aware of their need for his help. 

One of the great pillars of the progressive fascism is that the progressives know what the American public need and those who would oppose such help are perceived as imbecilic in the minds of the progressive stalwarts and their supreme leader Barack Obama. The President who ran on a campaign platform of hope and change has resorted to extreme partisan politics as he attempts to divert the debate away from health care reform which is rapidly losing support among the public, to a debate about the publics’ right to debate.

The Obama administration, in what appears to be nothing less than Orwellian, is asking Americans to spy on each other  by monitoring the media, including the Internet, to alert the White House to any postings or reporting on the President’s effort to enact health care reform,  that may be perceived as “fishy” . This is clearly a request of historic proportion and illuminates the agenda of the Obama administration and the fear that exists within the oval office that the public is unwilling to accept what they so desperately need the leadership of Barack Obama.

Obama and his handlers have developed a propaganda organization that exceeds anything America has ever seen and in fact rivals the best efforts of Germany in the 1930’s. However, the American public is becoming increasingly aware of the misrepresentations of the Obama administration and their passion for control over the social, cultural and economic fabric of our nation. This latest action by the White House in which they are accusing attendees at various Congressional town hall meetings around the country of being shills for the Republican Party is reflective of the elitism indigenous to the Obama administration.

President Obama believes he was elected with a mandate to lead the American public through a political transformation that would result in an America that in time will more fully resemble a European socialist state. It should have come as no surprise to the electorate that Obama and his progressive cult of admirers would accelerate the nation along the path of socialism. However, as the fog of the spell that was cast upon America by the Liberal media who overwhelmingly supported Barack Obama begins to clear,  America has awakened to the fact that Obama and his policies will destroy the best that remains of America.

America is turning its back on Barack Obama and a Democratic controlled Congress that replete with progressive talking points has failed to respect the ability of the public to recognize a shill when they see one.

The American public is awakening to the health care reform scam that Barack Obama and a subservient Democratic Congress are attempting to impose on a nation that does not want the change Barack Obama and his elitist progressive administration are determined to enact.

The public is speaking out across the country and saying no to Obamacare and serving notice to Congress that its members will be held accountable for the decisions they have made to date as well as in the future. Members of Congress are continually campaigning and with the  2010 elections only fifteen months away those with an eye on reelection will be listening to their constituents during the August recess. 

 The voices they hear will unnerve them. The American public in what happens once in a generation, if at all ,wants to be included in the decision process that takes place in Washington. Their voices will be heard at gatherings all across the land. They want entry into the elitist halls of government where special interest groups have placed a stranglehold on Congress and the Administration to further a progressive agenda that will bankrupt our nation’s spirit as well as our economy. In their zeal to transform this nation from an economy based on  free enterprise, broad individual freedoms and a limited role for government to a socialist nation, that will limit individual freedoms and expand the reach of government into every aspect of our lives.

Barack Obama has been slipping in the polls the past several weeks as Americans become disenchanted with his policies. As his favorability rating weakens in the polls it has provided an inverse reaction on Wall Street. As CEO4ADAY predicted in a blog on July 14th, Obama’s decline in the polls would ignite a rally on Wall Street as investors gained confidence that this, the most radical President to inhabit the White House, will fail in his quest to transform America into a Eurotopian socialist state.

The traditions of America consistently flow from the center. When the nation swings too far to the right or the left in an attempt to right an imbalance it eventually finds its way to the center or right of center. The cultural fabric of America has under gone vast changes over the past 233 years since the original 13 colonies declared their independence from the oppression and tyranny of a government that existed to be served by the people rather than a servant of the people.

Though our cultural fabric has changed through the years, the ideal that is  America as the benchmark for freedom, opportunity and a bulwark of  individualism has inspired the dreams of people through out the world. The administration of Barack Obama has a vision for a new America. An America that does not stand apart as a beacon of freedom in the world or a model of  free enterprise but rather exists to serve as a model for the world of a nation that views the quest for moderation as the American dream.  An America in which individual choices and freedoms are secondary to the greater will of the people as determined by an elite political class in Washington.

Americans are rejecting the vision of America offered by Barack Obama and promoted in Congress by Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid.  They are again speaking out for individual freedoms. The voices of Americans through out the land have been uncorked and will not return to an easy quiet until the center is firm.

The American public is becoming aware that Barack Obama is not the twenty first century messiah promoted by the liberal media. The very media that provided camouflage for Obama during the 2008 campaign are now standing impotent on the sidelines as Obama continues his relentless march down the field toward socialism.

 Six months into his term Barack Obama must be wondering what has happened. Obama was swept into office on the wings of a euphoric media and a liberal politic in which the left believed they had destroyed the conservative movement and in particular the Republican party. Today the President finds himself in a four front battle between health care reform, the cap and trade bill, a failed stimulus plan and an economy that promises continued high unemployment.

His leadership ability is being questioned by all but his most ardent supporters as finds himself in a battle to push his health care reform package through a Congress that is becoming more concerned with the mid term election in 2010 than supporting a President who is rapidly losing public support for key initiatives of his progressive agenda.

Obama  is clearly a practioner of the “Big Lie” which was so effectively developed in the propaganda machine administered by Joseph Goebbels for a messianic leader who transformed a nation in the 1930’s leading to the destruction of a nation and a people in the 1940’s. The premise behind the “Big Lie” is simple. Repeat the lie frequently enough and it will be perceived as the truth. Obama was elected on the merits of the “Big Lie” and he and his administration have continued to expand on this tactic since his inauguration.

Obama possesses the rhetorical skills and the platform to deliver the “Big Lie” in a manner that seduces the listener and provides the comfort of a  cup of hot cocoa on a cold winter night. He used the Big Lie to sell the $787 Billion American Recovery Act which has failed miserably as a stimulus plan and is now embracing the Big Lie to market health care reform and clean energy legislation.

Obama promised that the stimulus plan would save or create three and one half million jobs. He repeated the lie  on numerous occasions to create a sense of urgency to pass the stimulus package and included the same lie in his 2010 Budget message. Now the lie has changed from job creation around the stimulus package to the fact that “I Barack Obama” have brought the economy back from the brink” with the stimulus plan.

Barack obama is a progressive fascist. He seeks to impose his will upon the American public to reset the American Dream. He seeks to be the founding father of a new America in which the public will subject their own will and desires to the Federal Government for the benefit of all. There is nothing new here. There is no hope and no change with this President. The world has seen his act before and suffered the great pain of an ego that knew no bounds.  Barack Obama’s Big Lie is an echo of  the strategies utilized by the German leadership between 1933 and 1945. His message, meticulously staged and wrapped in the eloquence and the historical credibility of the White House is destructive to this great Republic.
