 How's this for apocalyptic literature. This was written by a pastor's  Wife in biblical prose as a commentary of current events.  It is  brilliant.



 And it  came to pass in the Age of Insanity that the people of the land  Called America , having lost their morals, their initiative, and  their  Will to defend their liberties, chose as their Supreme Leader that  Person  known as "The One."


 He  emerged from the vapors with a message that had no meaning;  but He  Hypnotized the people telling them, "I am sent to save you." My lack  Of  experience, my questionable ethics, my monstrous ego, and my  Association with evil doers are of no consequence. I  shall save you  With hope and Change. Go, therefore, and proclaim throughout the  Land that he who proceeded me is evil, that he has defiled the nation,  And that all he has built must be destroyed. And the people rejoiced,  For even though they knew not what "The One" would do, he had promised  That it  was good; and they believed. And "The One" said " We live in  The  greatest country in the world. Help me change everything about it!"

 And the people said, "Hallelujah! Change is good!" 


 Then He said, "We are going to tax the rich fat-cats." And the  People said "Sock it to them!," and redistribute their wealth." And  The people said, "Show us the money!" And he said,


"Redistribution of wealth is good for everybody." 


 And Joe the plumber asked, " Are you kidding me? You're going to  Steal my money and give it to the deadbeats??" And "The One" 

 Ridiculed and taunted him, and Joe's personal records were hacked and publicized.

 One lone reporter asked, "Isn't that Marxist policy?" And she was  Banished from the kingdom!


 Then a citizen asked, "With no foreign relations experience and  Having zero military experience or knowledge, how will you deal with  Radical terrorists?" And "The One" said, "Simple. I shall sit with  Them and talk with them and show them how nice we really are; and they  Will forget that they ever wanted to kill us all!" And the people  Said,  "Hallelujah!! We are safe at last, and we can beat our weapons  Into free cars for the people!"




 Then  "The One" said "I shall give 95% of you lower taxes." And one,  Lone voice said, "But 40% of us don't pay ANY taxes." So "The One"

 Said,  "Then I shall give you some of the taxes the fat-cats pay!" 

 And the people said, "Hallelujah! Show us the money!" 

 Then "The One" said, "I shall tax your Capital Gains when you sell  Your homes!" And the people yawned as the slumping housing market  Collapsed. And He said.. "I shall mandate  employer-funded health care  For every worker and raise the minimum wage. And I shall give every  Person unlimited healthcare and medicine and transportation to the  Clinics." And the people said, "Give me some of that!"

 Then he said, "I shall penalize employers who ship jobs overseas." 

 And the  people said, "Where's my rebate check?"


 Then "The One" said, "I shall bankrupt the coal industry and  Electricity rates will skyrocket!" And the people said, "Coal is  Dirty,  coal is evil, no more coal! But we don't care for that part  About higher electric rates." So "The One" said, Not to worry. If  Your rebate isn't enough to cover your expenses, we shall bail you out.

 Just sign up with the ACORN and you troubles are over!" 


 Then He said, "Illegal immigrants feel scorned and slighted. Let's  Grant them amnesty, Social Security, free education, free lunches,  Free  medical care, bi-lingual signs and guaranteed housing..."  And  The  people said, "Hallelujah!" and they made him king! 


 And so it came to pass that employers, facing spiraling costs and  Ever-higher taxes, raised their prices and laid off workers. Others Simply gave up and went out of business and the economy sank like unto A rock dropped from a cliff.

 The banking industry was destroyed. Manufacturing slowed to a  Crawl. And more of the people were without a means of support. 


 Then  "The One" said, "I am the "the One"- The Messiah - and I'm here  To save  you! We shall just print more money so everyone will have  Enough!" But our foreign trading partners said unto Him. "Wait a  Minute.  Your dollar is not worth a pile of camel dung! You will have  to pay  more... And "The One" said, "Wait a minute. That is  unfair!!" And the world said, "Neither are these other idiotic  programs you have embraced. Lo, you have become a Socialist state and  a second-rate power.. Now you shall play by our rules!" 


 And the people cried out, "Alas, alas!! What have we done?" But yea  verily,  it was too late. The people set upon The One and spat upon  him and  stoned him, and his name was dung. And the once mighty nation  was no more; and the once proud people were without sustenance or  shelter or hope. And the Change "The One" had given them was as like  unto a poison that had destroyed then and like a whirlwind that  consumed all that they had built.


 And the people beat their chests in despair and cried out in anguish,  "give us back our nation and our pride and our hope!!" But it was too  late, and their homeland was no more.


 You may think this a fairy tale, but it's not.

 It's  happening RIGHT NOW
