The election of Barack Obama to a second term is one of the most indicative factors of how our society has changed at its core. For at least thirty years the liberal teachers have been indoctrinating students with their far-left ideology at all grade levels. It has always been there in most colleges, but years ago a concerted effort was initiated at all levels in the public school systems. What we are seeing now is those brainwashed masses in their late 20s to early 40s that are a huge voting block.
In other generations in our history, a high number of late teens to those in their mid-20s were fairly liberal, which was often a result of spending most of the year in college classrooms. Even for those not in college, of course, those were also the ages that many were idealistic and involved in protest actions for social change. After they grew out of this period most settled down, got into a career, and had a family. Thus, their political leanings morphed into being more conservative, and they would rarely vote for a politician as incompetent and liberal as Barack Obama. Of course, mistakes did occur, such as Jimmy Carter, but they didn't re-elect him.
Nowadays, after several years of liberal brainwashing in the public school systems and colleges, those in their late 20s and early 30s are often so entrenched in their thinking that it's difficult to change even if they have an inclination to. This is a main factor as to why Obama got re-elected. Logically, he shouldn't even have had 30% of the vote. Many of those who voted for him often can't even articulate why he should have been re-elected. That's what 12-16 years of brainwashing does to a person.
How does this relate to issues such as abortion?
Obviously, the right to an abortion is part of the liberal package, just as homosexual marriage is. There is even a push from many mainstream Republicans to soften their party's abortion stance. Mitt Romney's position was weak and that still didn't make a difference in the election. Another result of rampant liberalism that I have noticed is many in their 30s and 40s, no matter what party, have a general acceptance of abortion. Some may even nod their heads and agree that it's wrong, and that's about the extent of it.
What should we do to stop this rolling wave of liberalism?
We need to double our efforts with a sound logical defense of the abortion issue and any other topic that is feeling the effects of this brainwashing. Instead of just moving on to the next topic or keeping silent when abortion is brought up, we need to defend our pro-life view and put others in a position where they have to try to have a defense for their beliefs. We have to engage them with the truth or this liberal momentum will keep rolling. Rest assured, Barack Obama, is going to throw plenty of fuel on to the abortion debate fire. His love of abortion and Planned Parenthood will keep the topic front and center. Whereas, if Mitt Romney was elected, his pro-life stance even may have lulled some pro-lifers into thinking that they wouldn't have to fight as hard for the unborn. The truth is that even if Romney was president, the abortion rate more than likely would have stayed the same through his term. There may have been a small reduction here or there due to lack of funding for Planned Parenthood, but in the grand scheme of things, the lives of the unborn humans in America would still have been in jeopardy at a tremendous rate.
It is time to do twice as much as we have done to try to stop the growing threat of entrenched liberalism that does not see any value in the lives of the unborn. Thanks to all who have fought this battle in the last 40 years, and let's keep marching on faster and more intensely than we ever have.
