Liberals are rewriting America’s history to create a past that does not exist and to eradicate the one the does. Their goal is to create an indoctrinated electorate that is ignorant of its own past and, as a result, easily led into a questionable future. Liberals like President Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and Hillary Clinton live in a fantasyland of their own making. My colleague, Jim Guirard, a Washington, D. C. based attorney and long-time Chief of Staff to former Senator Russell Long, calls this leftwing fantasyland the “OPRAH Land Plantation (Obama-Pelosi-Reid-And-Hillary Land.” In this fantasyland, society can be made perfect—as Liberals define perfect—if only we spend enough government money on it. But liberals face an interesting problem in trying to shape America’s future in their own image. That problem is America’s past.
The reader has probably heard the maxim that the best guide to the future is the past. We usually interpret this to mean that knowing the past will help us avoid repeating errors as we move into the future, but it can also mean being guided by what was done right in the past. The past is precursor to the future and herein, as they say, is the rub. There is nothing in America’s past that supports where liberals are trying to take our country in the future. In fact, just the opposite is true. Our Founders had a vision for America that runs counter to the vision of today’s liberals in all respects. It was a vision of self-government by free people who were willing to govern themselves so that government did not have to. It was a vision of personal responsibility, individual liberty, free markets, and limited government. This is why liberals are rewriting history. None of these things comport with the left’s agenda of big government, burdensome regulations, entitlement, statism, and lifelong dependence.
The Founders sacrificed dearly to establish a nation based on their vision. Their founding principles—personal responsibility, individual liberty, free markets, and limited government—are difficult to square with the future today’s liberals envision for America: big government; liberties that are increasingly infringed on by burdensome, unnecessary regulations; a society of entitled finger-pointers who refuse to accept responsibility for themselves or their actions and who think they are owed a living; a permanent underclass that is completely dependent on the government; high taxes; and a statist/socialist economy.
