JBS.org: Robert Welch’s deja vu commentary

Posted By on December 10, 2009

Although I’m not a John Birch Society focused guy,  a friend of mine forwarded a YouTube video from its founder Robert W. Welch, Jr. compiled from 1958 and 1974 speeches (embedded below). Happy 51st Anniversary JBS.orgIt is interesting that after our American Republic watched the Soviet Union’s heavy handed, centrally controlled communist government collapse in the 1980s, that another generation of Americans would be facing a leftist movement from within its own country just 25 years later …  of course it is semi-disguised as spreading the wealth, social justice, and compassion. Why haven’t we learn from the failed political experiments recorded in thousands of years of history?

It is puzzling how blind and accepting Americans have become to an expanding and heavy handed federal government, particularly one that is willingly to give governing power and our assets to foreign entities. What are we doing my fellow Americans — see previous post? Don’t let your freedom and liberty erode … our Republic is not in good hands.

“The American Republic was bound—is still bound—to follow in the centuries to come the same course to destruction as did Rome. But our real ground of complaint is that we have been pushed down the demagogic road to disaster by conspiratorial hands, far sooner and far faster than would have been the results of natural political evolution. … We are being insidiously, conspiratorially, and treasonously led by deception, by bribery, by coercion, and by fear, to destroy a republic that was the envy and model for all of the civilized world.”
– Robert Welch, Jr. (1899-1985)
