Obama's New Liberalism Harkens the Decline of America's Ascendency

In the titled link to the Weekly Standard, Charles Krauthammer provides tremendous insight and analysis into the questions surrounding whether America is in decline in the post-American world or is that an overblown fear.

This titled link is a must read to gain provocative insight into the systematic reduction of America's hegemonic role in the world as orchestrated by the Obama, Senate and House leaderships.

Krauthammer's thesis is simple,
"...The question of whether America is in decline cannot be answered yes or no. There is no yes or no. Both answers are wrong, because the assumption that somehow there exists some predetermined inevitable trajectory, the result of uncontrollable external forces, is wrong. Nothing is inevitable. Nothing is written. For America today, decline is not a condition. Decline is a choice. "

Krauthammer goes on to say,
"...we are facing that choice of dominance and America's leaders are gradually, deliberately, willingly, and indeed relievedly give it up. The current (new) liberal ascendancy in the United States--controlling the executive and both houses of Congress, dominating the media and elite culture--has set us on a course for decline. And this is true for both foreign and domestic policies. Indeed, they work synergistically to ensure that outcome."

Krauthammer concludes with,
"There are things to be done. Resist retreat as a matter of strategy and principle. And provide the means to continue our dominant role in the world by keeping our economic house in order. And finally, we can follow the advice of Demosthenes when asked what was to be done about the decline of Athens. His reply? "I will give what I believe is the fairest and truest answer: Don't do what you are doing now."

The Obama, Pelosi and Reid leadership is systematically attempting to reduce America's role of world hegemon through international strategic defense retreats, deficit spending to reduce the value of the dollar, massive trade deficits through dependence on foreign oil, social spending at the expense of defense spending to lead us to a path of unknown, untested, shifting multipolarity grounded in a fictionalized utopia.

Voting the democrats out of the House and Senate leadership in 2010 is the first step to thwart Obama's "New Liberalism" plan to reduce America's role as world hegemon.
