It has always troubled me when people become infatuated with someone. When I watched the first inauguration of our present leader and saw the people, it reminded me of the Jim Jones tragedy. Jim Jones was an American religious leader and community organizer. He was the founder and the leader of the Peoples Temple, best known for the mass suicide by drinking kool-aid which contained cyanide poisoning in November, 1978 when 909 of its members left the United States and moved to Jonestown, Guyana, and were murdered in addition to five individuals, including Congressman Leo Ryan. Over 300 children were murdered at Jonestown, almost all of them by cyanide poisoning.
Why would people believe in someone like Jim Jones? These people turned over all of their worldly goods to this man. As life would have it, there are other charismatic people like Obama, those who can enthrall others easily with their charm, stage presence and apparent strengths, can prey on people who are easily led, or who need answers, guidance or assurance of one kind or another. A person can be charismatic, without being particularly good, or well-suited for ministry. The charismatic leader might feed on the adulation of adoring crowds, and the easily led crowds begin to feel more and more connected to the leader and to each other. The leader may start out with an unconventional concept that becomes more radical as time goes on, and more often than not the leader believes the concepts, however strange they become, to be true. This all serves to deepen the bonds that develop. This connectedness, or clan loyalty, is a very important part of our human experience. Humans are a social species; you don’t find a high percentage of people who remain isolated throughout life. The majority of people seek out some kind of group or groups with which to affiliate.
The end result should be that people need to THINK for themselves. This is what has happened to the Democratic Party. It has been infiltrated by progressives (communists) and Muslims trying to bring the country down to their level. One example is the Muslim Sharia law which for women is no different from slavery. Slavery was extinguished many years ago in our country and now the Muslims want to re-institute this law into our country – to have women be a slave to men; and, in fact, there are now areas in our country who have incorporated this into their community. Our present leader has pulled our country back to the lowest level we have known in our lifetime. All done to be in control of the people. America has to wake up on November, 2014 and ask yourself is our country better off than before Obama took office? He keeps telling us that we are no longer a Christian nation – even though our country is built around the ten commandments. My parents would call this man a heathen (is an individual of a people who does not acknowledge God or the Bible). If you want to live in a dictatorship and have no ability to think for yourself – then you need to vote for a Democrat because this is the direction this charismatic leader is taking the country.
