After the Civil War and up until WWI, American went into a great ‘transformation.’ The cities exploded with factories, and new technologies, and the idealistic American dream of the lone rugged individual of the founders…were being uprooted. Big politics and big business came crashing in on the new dispensations: Tammany Hall, and the stock manipulators brought about “Black Friday” in 1869. Labor strikes came in 1873, and 1876. In 1886, there were more labor strikes in Chicago.
We went from an agrarian society to an industrial one. Then we got the oil and steel tycoons, and the start of the big humongous multinationals conglomerates we have today.
And one guy, had this to say:
“The eight years in America from 1860 to 1868 uprooted institutions that were centuries old, changed the politics of a people, transformed the social life of half the country, and wrought so profoundly upon the entire national character that the influence cannot be measured.” –Mark Twain
Nobody suggests that if you change those dates to 1992-2012, that statement would very much fit what we are seeing in America today.
America is more fascistic, the people more divided and diverse, our freedoms vanishing, and almost all of our institutions: the family, the churches, our government, and our schools, have been changed so profoundly upon the entire national character…that the influence cannot be measured.
Obama, and many of the globalists, want to change the national character. No more melting pot. No more America.
What would Mark Twain have to say about Obama?
“When angry, count four: when very angry, swear.”
They have “banned” Twain’s masterpiece Huckleberry Finn from our kids…but, it was one of the most profound books against slavery ever written, which brings me to another Mark Twain quote:
“All you need in life is ignorance and confidence, then success is assured.”
So THAT’s how he became President.
