It's all at stake in 2012, and the next chosen leader of this nation must have the fearlessness and fortitude to stem the tide of socialism and return America to her role as world champion of individual rights.
The solution, the vision, outlined here in my column in Human Events, for a viable America:
The Next American President Pamela Geller
The focus for 2012 so far has been exclusively on which Republican candidate is most electable. This is hardly the issue. The next presidential election is far more historically significant than as a mere presidential election. The next presidential election is not only an election of a person; it is also, and more importantly, a referendum on American independence and statehood.
The next American president must vow to return to the founding principle of the American idea: individual rights. The next American president must advocate and cheerlead for the most benevolent and productive human system in the world, capitalism.
Barack Obama’s socialism is wrecking the American economy and relinquishing American sovereignty. Obama’s disastrous policies cannot be reversed overnight. This presidential putsch is the crowning achievement of a fifty-year campaign of sedition and infiltration of uber-left anti-American statism. In many ways it is even older than fifty years, going back to Franklin Delano Roosevelt and the New Deal. And imagine: LBJ, the Great Society socialist, wasn’t leftist enough and was forced not to run for re-election despite designing the “Great Society” legislation that included Public Broadcasting, Medicare, Medicaid, environmental protection, aid to education, and his “War on Poverty.” The far left has been working toward the Obama administration for years, and his election was its finest hour.
No, the tragic election of Barack Hussein Obama was no accident, and the consequences of it will be catastrophic and painful. But we as a people, a free people, hold our destiny in our hands. The next president must campaign, and govern, on austerity, and on American power and exceptionalism. He or she must campaign on the promise to dismantle big government, roll back this monster, and deregulate the chains on our economic engine. We must unshackle the small businessman and destroy the crippling system of serfdom by way of entitlements. These are harsh but unavoidable realities.
We must be free and we must vote for freedom first, for this was the very idea of America: individual rights. This was our founding principle. Small government in defense of individual rights, property rights and the national defense.
The next president must have integrity, political will and spine (something in very short supply in Washington, and so we will have to go out of the box). We must fight for accurate information and ignore a media with an activist, propagandist agenda. It has gotten down to that: the media vs. the people. So we must do our homework and we must advocate the candidacy of the American who has the intellectual muscle and testicular fortitude for the coming storm. We need straight answers and not rhetoric. What are his/her mission by objectives? Where does the candidate stand on Iran? The Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt? The Muslim Brotherhood groups in America? And the powerful malevolent influence of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation?
Where does he or she stand on our participation in the UN? The next President must promise to tie funds to the UN based on results and reform. The next President must stop sending foreign aid to despots, murdering regimes. The next President must export political freedom based on individual rights, and reward countries that work toward that goal.Read the rest here.
