Jerry Molen on Obama
The writer of this essay is Jerry Molen. Jerry is a great friend and an Academy Award winning Hollywood Producer. He did Jurassic Park, Hook, Rainman, and many more class movies. He won the Academy Award for Schindler’s List. Jerry is one of the very few clear thinking conservatives that I know from Hollywood. We need to get this out to as many as possible to include liberal Democrats. We are about to make the Mother-of-All-Mistakes, because the Republican Party gave us no reliable alternative. In my opinion, if the conservative movement does not rally behind the only alternative left to us, this country will become a true Socialist State within the next two Presidential terms. Ladies and Gentleman, this is the most grave situation this nation has faced in my lifetime.

We just experienced an overhyped, positively outrageous primary
election season that has left me cold and wondering where the heads of
our citizens are hiding out. Must be someplace where the sun doesn’t
get to very often.
At one time in my life I was a determined, dedicated and ever loyal
registered Democrat. Then something happened (Lyndon Baines Johnson)
that turned my life around and gave me much pause as to the veracity
of a party that dwelt on and fed off of the most unfortunate among us.
Some of those unfortunates were in their positions in life by way of
their own choosing and others were there by circumstance. But always,
always with a door open to them to reach for new heights, achieve new
goals, change their lives for the better. And also, always ever
present were the bottom feeders doing everything they could to take
advantage of those who had not or have not seen the light of better
days and times nor realizing they were in fact the masters of their
own destiny. They had come to believe that they were dependent on
those in power in Washington and that they would look out for them and
take care of their every need. They are still waiting and expecting al
those promised freebies.
Most people aren’t even aware that the Democrats ruled Washington for
over 40 years. It wasn’t until 1994 when the so called Gingrich
Revolution changed that for a short period of time. Nor do people
realize that it was the Dem’s that created the failed policies of the
many entitlement programs that are falling apart right before our
eyes. Please do not think I find the Republicans blameless in all
this. They too, suffer from ego inflation and greed motivators built
into the system. It’s just that the past few months I’ve listened to
the rantings and railings of the left in America calling for more
giveaways and better ways to obtain the proverbial ‘free lunch’.
I think that to sum up my feelings and why I am so set apart from
those within the circles of political power and influence can be
illustrated best by a quote by noted basketball legend and talk show
co-host Charles Barkley:
“Poor people have been voting for Democrats for the last fifty
years….and they are still poor”.
And now with the election results comes the promises of “change”.
“Change we can believe in.” “Change for the future”. When in fact if
you really, I mean REALLY listen to what the new messiah is asking for
is not ‘change of policy’ or ‘change for the better’. He is warning
all of us that he wants our change all right, ‘loose change’, pocket
change’, social change and political change……So people wake up.
For if you don’t the change you get may not be the change you were
expecting or the change you wanted.
To close my screed, I want to leave you with some JM predictions in
the event the junior Senator from Illinois becomes President and
especially if the House and Senate are veto proof.
1). Strict new gun laws will be enacted even though he promised he
2). The phrase “In God We Trust” will be removed from all currency.
3). He will back away from his pledge to Israel and leave them to the
wolves of Islam.
4). Hillary Clinton will be named to the Supreme Court.
5). Tax rates will return to their highest levels in 30 years.
6). The capital gains tax will be at least double current levels.
7). Retired Army General Wesley Clark will be named Secretary of
8). The borders will be ‘basically open’ to all comers. Especially
those from the Middle East and South America.
9). Amnesty will be granted to all illegals now in the U.S
10). The war in Iraq will be brought to an abrupt end and the results
will be tragic and the consequences to our military will be devastating.
I realize that my predictions may not sit too well with some people
and the best we could all hope for is that I am totally wrong. Any bets?
