Reader's view: Under Obama, America is headed toward ‘1984’

Do you want to see the future of the United States of America? Do you want to understand the results of the direction our country is taking? It’s easy, and it only takes a few hours of your time. See the movie, “2016 Obama” and read “1984” by George Orwell and “Ameritopia” by Mark Levin. Oh, and you may want to learn about pre-Nazi Germany; read personal accounts or talk to someone who was there.

The direction and the future of America are obvious even to the most casual observer.

“Observer” is a key word here. Pay attention. Look around you. Listen closely to criticism, not just to those you agree with. Learn history. Then put on your thinking cap. Use your head. Seek the truth, not what you want to see but the truth of what you see.

“Those who don’t know history are bound to repeat it,” it often has been said. So has, “There are none so blind as those who will not see.”
