The House is lost

By Victor Topaller

Translated version of the Russian article

Hello reader,

 Four years ago, I told myself that I wouldn’t write another article until the next election.  Now that time has passed, and I am writing a new article. Why did I tell myself this? It was embarrassing and disgusting. It was already obvious why I began to write. America still made its president an empty chair, a cheap populist. A person out of nowhere, community organizer known for his friendships with terrorists like Bill Ayers and those, who despise this country like reverend Wright. A true narcissist, a demagogue, liar, a person sick with socialism and a love for Islamists. In my last publication four years ago I wrote: 

“I don’t want to talk just for the sake of talking – but I have no doubt that this is a catastrophe for America and for you as an American citizen. The consequences of Obama’s election are easy to predict. We will smell the stench of Socialism filling up America before we even knew what happened. The hardworking will feed those who don’t want to work, who in turn will feel like the masters of this country. Rising crime, bad levels of medical care, loss of freedom of speech, a worsening economy, all these  “wonders” are waiting for us have no doubt about it. But these are just the “flowers”; “sour grapes” are waiting for us, the triumph of terrorists, criminals, radical Islamic fanatics, crooks from Kremlin. All this filth will be seen quite clearly.

This paranoid desire for “hope and change” of which Democrats scream about is really a subconscious wish for suicide. What the hell, “hope and change”? The pitfall of Socialism? It is the transformation of a superpower into a cowardly country in which all kinds of scum and villainy, both international and domestic, can roam freely. Israel has made this mistake; they thought that if they would compromise and be friendly to the terrorists, the international community would love them. They didn’t get the love; but they lost their respect, wonderful results. It would seem that America is envying Israel’s actions. “Clowns of the worlds, united under the title of “intellectual humanists” in arms with bandits of many types, united to support the one who would bring “change” to this country.” We understand Socialism, not from red university professors who transform our youth into morons, but from practical experience. “Peace – it’s good! War- it’s bad! Good healthcare and high wages for everyone! Long live equality!” It is very attractive nonsense that in reality leads to the exact opposite.

There is joy in Moscow and Pyongyang, Damascus and Tehran, Havana and Tripoli. Celebrating Hamas and Hezbollah, and in the streets of American cities our youths are running and jumping in joy. On these innocent faces, there is little intellect to be found. You young people are happy that the “old, evil” America is going away, and changing into a nation of happiness, justice, free treats, equality, and brotherhood. Oh how naïve you really are. You will see change have no doubt about it.

An America that hasn’t smelled the vile stench of socialism just doesn’t understand what it means to “take than share”. They really cannot understand the pit they have dug themselves into with their own hands.”

Forgive me, reader, for this colossal quote. But you have to agree with me that this quote bears as much weight after the 2012 election as it did in 2008. There is however, one key difference. Back then there was the hope that all of this disgrace and shame would end in four years. Today that hope is gone. The issue is not with Romney, nor with Obama, he just an empty chair. The issue is that our society turned out to be clinically sick. Unlike Midas (whose touch turned everything to gold), everything Obama touches turns into shit, with regards to both domestic and foreign policy. He betrayed our allies, bowed down before our enemies, embarrassed himself completely with Benghazi, killed the economy and healthcare, and helped idlers by making working people’s lives harder and harder. This is the long list of Obama’s achievements, and this man got a second term. Unbelievable? Believe it. Bill O’Reilly said it right: The America that we were proud of and loved is gone”. And the words of Kennedy “Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country”. Today America is dominated by those who don’t want to work but only take (the lazy). This is Obama’s electorate.

Four years ago I wrote about this crisis in society. Every doctor knows that where there is a serious disease, there is a crisis. In this crisis, if we do not die, we can get better. I was certain that America had to go through the sickness, and recover, returning to its ideals and traditional values. I was wrong, America didn’t get better, and it died. What’s next? Honestly, nothing good. Obama’s electorate is expanding and bloating. The amount of honest, sensible, and decent people is shrinking. This is not funny. Four years ago I was reminded of Bulghakov (Mikhail Bulgakov’s satirical fantasy “Heart of a Dog” was written in 1925 but – thanks to Soviet censorship – went unpublished until 1987). The main protagonist of Bulghakov’s novel Philip Philipovich Preobrazhensky believed that Socialism is a fountain of troubles.

“’What, again?’ exclaimed Philip Philipovich mournfully.’Well, this is the end of this house. I’ll have to go away -but where to? I can see exactly what’ll happen. First of all there’ll be community singing in the evening, then the pipes will freeze in the lavatories, then the central heating boiler will blow up and so on. The house is lost.’

‘Philip Philipovich worries himself to death,’ said Zina with a smile as she cleared away a pile of plates.

‘How can I help it?’ exploded Philip Philipovich. ‘Don’t you know what this house used to be like?’“

I also wrote that America is a mighty nation with strong democratic institutions and traditions. Socialism is rust that decays away at society. I had hoped that our plumbing would not have frozen and ruptured. “We will have to go – but where to?” What can be done to ease the situation? Ah here it is! In addition to the presidential election have mid-term elections for Senate and Congress. The Senate has its first openly lesbian senator Tammy Baldwin. We love her not only for that but also for how actively she worked against sanctions on Iran. Donald Trump cries in vain: “Well, back to the drawing board! We can’t let this happen. We should march on Washington and stop this travesty. Our nation is totally divided! Let’s fight like hell and stop this great and disgusting injustice! The world is laughing at us. This election is a total sham and a travesty. We are not a democracy! Our country is now in serious and unprecedented trouble…like never before. Our nation is a once great nation divided!”

It’s too late my brother Donald, it’s too late. The train has gone, you can’t catch it. The house is lost.

    Foreigners and immigrants bring special wisdom and insights. At this point in history Russians bring the best. Their experiences cannot be imagined by most native born Americans. Thank you for your insights.
