I'm sure you've seen the Obama lit agent Kenya controversy so I won't bore you with rehashing the details; rather I thought I would just quickly check in here with a few thoughts on the issue.
Two possibilities are at play here:
- Obama was born in Kenya (the least likely). What do we do about that? Nothing, except insist that future candidates be vetted properly and NEVER FORGET how American media is such an epic fail.
- Obama is a liar and fabricating who he is is all he is - his modus operandi. He wanted to be known as the "born in Kenya" Harvard Law Review president to increase his limousine-socialist creds (overwhelmingly likely).
If Obama wasn't a divider deathly intent on pitting man against woman, red state against blue state, black against white, "health" bureaucracy against faithful, poor against the wealthy, unions against non-unions, environmentalists against business owners/income earners, haves against "have-nots", state against the Catholic church, gays versus straights...
...no one would care about this "born in Kenya" literary agent issue.
My advice is this...
...don't get distracted. Yes, Obama is an angry man hellbent upon bringing this nation's economy down in pseudo Hugo Chavez-like fashion. He is frightfully hostile and ignorant to what actually makes America work (let alone what makes it great). It is insane that someone like him could be elected in America.
But remember this: It foretells worse things for the future of the Republic that the public would elect a man like Obama. His lineage is a side-issue to this bigger picture.
The media failed at every point by not vetting him. They wanted their cultural-relativist black Democrat socialist president; nothing was going to get in the way of that.
But our neighbors, families, friends and acquaintances fell for it. As Americans, we hold the true power of who holds the reins of power in our society and we failed.
Now as liberty-loving Americans let us not be distracted by side-issues, rather let us turn back the tide on socialism and get America back to what it was even in recent memory. Bear witness to your neighbors, your family, your acquaintances. Speak boldly and never be afraid.
It's a long, twisting, dark road before us but I know we can do it.
