CORRECTION: Eastern European Speaks From Experience

CORRECTION:
Thanks to a friend of mine bringing this to my attention I have delved deeper into this story and found my formally trusted source to be in grave error. If I receive an email or information from anyone with this kind of data I normally try to verify it with at least two different sources before printing. However, I believed this source to be very reliable, as they have always been in the past, and did not look deeper into its validity. My mistake!

TO ALL MY READERS: Please accept my apologies for allowing this one to slip through the cracks. I will keep it on the blog to show that even those of us in the business of trying to print factual opinions can royally screw up sometime. I vow to try and never let this kind of thing ever happen again.

Those of us who are baby boomers remember what life was like for America in the 1950's and 1960's under the constant threat of annihilation from a nuclear Soviet Union as it flexed its muscle and spread throughout Eastern Europe. However, those living behind the infamous iron curtain during the era of the Cold War under Soviet control can speak from real experience and have a unique perspective on what an empire of oppression looks like. Here is a brief article that was recently placed in the Prague newspaper, Prager Zeitungon. We in America would do well to read, take heed and learn something from this bit of wisdom.

"The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America."

"Blaming the prince of fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools, such as those who made him their President."
