The link below was posted by one of the members of my local meetup. She added the following comment, "It is for a cartoon made in 1948 -- and is eerily relevant today -- please watch the entire 9 1/2 minute film. I hope it will inspire all of you -- 'John Q. Publics' all -- that everything depends on what we do next."
This same member created a Powerpoint presentation called "The Perfect Storm", which detail the rise of the Progressive movement and demonstrated that Progressives and their fellow-travelers have been peddling the same lies for nearly a hundred years. It is incumbent on us as lovers of liberty to take every opportunity resist these progressive ideas, and the collectivist impulses which emanate from them. I describe the desired end of their radical/socialist/collectivist agenda like this:
They want to transform the United States of America into a second world cradle-to-grave welfare state.
President Obama and the progressive machine are determined to reduce America to a mere shadow of her former self. We must be determined to thwart them at every turn. One of the best ways at our disposal is to remind ourselves and our fellow Americans where we came from, why America exists, what will be lost if our generation fails to protect, preserve and defend our liberty and enduring institutions from all enemies, foreign and domestic.
Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.
