Economies can be rebuilt, armies can be repopulated, but once a nation’s pride is gone it can almost never be restored. The loss of a nation’s honor is something not even centuries can repair.
–Michael Savage, Trickle Down Tyranny: Crushing Obama’s Dream Of The Socialist States Of America
Conservative radio talk-show host and New York Times bestselling author Michael Savage returns to the written word this week with what might turn out to be his most important contribution to America and, in a broader sense, the preservation of traditional Western culture: Trickle Down Tyranny: Crushing Obama’s Dream Of The Socialist States Of America.
Savage returns to the literary world in his sixth non-fiction political work with a sobering, non-pollyannish State of The Union under the emerging dictator Barack Hussein Obama. He puts forth, as only Savage can, an unambiguous and concise blueprint, devoid of bumper-sticker platitudes, that will lead to the defeat of Obama’s attempted socialist takeover of America.
Savage begins Trickle Down Tyranny with an important premise that few will state, including the Republican frontrunner for president, Mitt Romney: Obama hates America and virtually everything for which it has stood for almost 236 years.
Savage writes, “Obama–classic narcissist that he is–is remaking this country in his own image, turning it into something that reflects the belief system he was brainwashed into accepting by the leftist mentors of his youth.” (p. 41)
Under Obama, the notion of American Exceptionalism, at least the Tocqueville-Reagan depiction of a shining beacon of liberty radiating throughout the world, ceases to exist. Sure, America is still exceptional. If by exceptional one is referring to a former global superpower that now resembles a Lesser-Developed Country seemingly headed towards Third World status.
We are playing witness to the emergence of, as Savage would say, a would-be dictator in Obama the likes of which we have not seen since since Obama’s idol, FDR. He is driving us towards a Third-World Banana Republic ruled by a puppet dictator.
In response to the tyrannical actions of Obama which include the appointment of unaccountable czars, destroying economic liberty, ignoring the will of the People, trampling on States’ rights, etc., Savage calls for a new Declaration of Independence. A new declaration is needed, Savage writes, because “Obama fits our founders’ definition of a tyrant.” (p. 31)
Think we’ll ever hear the Republican nominee describe the threat Obama poses to liberty in such unequivocal terms? Of course not! And that is the only reason why an Obama defeat in November remains in doubt. The majority of Americans disapprove of the job Obama has done. How could they not? Many of them only voted for Obama in 2008 simply because they were caught up in the tsunami of celebrity and superficial awe generated by the mainstream media. Most of them had immediate voter’s remorse.
Americans are now pleading for a leader to emerge that will defeat Obama and his Fabian-socialist takeover of America. Savage provides the blueprint for defeating Obama in a single paragraph:
The list of economic failures includes the first debt downgrade in U.S. history, and the highest budget deficits, federal spending, and federal debt as a percentage of GDP since World War II. Under Obama home ownership has declined to its lowest level since the 1960s. The number of Americans paying taxes is the lowest in the modern era, while those dependent on the government for aid is the highest in history.
That is Obama’s record. It’s indefensible. That is Obama’s America. It’s, to use a word the “green” movement loves, unsustainable. (You’re welcome, GOP, for the free campaign theme: “Obama’s America: It’s unsustainable.”)
The Republican nominee should quote that paragraph at every stump speech and appearance during the 2012 campaign. But I’m not so sure there is a leader in the Republican Party with the intestinal fortitude of Michael Savage.
One thing is for sure. We will know the leader when we see him because, according to Savage, he “must love America. The next president must embody unequivocally everything that is good about this country going back to its founding.”
If such a leader emerges and Barack Obama is defeated, Trickle Down Tyranny will not be known simply as another New York Times Bestseller, but instead as the catalyst for restoring America’s honor and pride.
