The following is from an e-mail I received from Jim Christensen, host of “The Heaven & Home Hour” radio program. It is in the form of a fairy tale, but as you will see at the end it is all too real and happening now.

I apoogize in advance for the formatting, I put it into Word Pad and cleaned it up the best I could.

What is happening
                      to our country? there is more to this than just a, what
                      may seem to be, a fairytale in this story




And it came to
                      pass in the Age of Insanity that the people of the land
America ,
                      having lost their morals, their work 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. For I shall save you with
Hope and
                      Change. Go, therefore, and proclaim throughout the land
                      that he who preceded 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 he would bring change, and
                      they proclaimed “Yes We Can”.










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






And then He said,
                      “Redistribution of wealth is good for everybody”





And the people
                      said, “Show us the money!”





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
                      personal records were hacked, publicized, and ridiculed;
                      though no crime could be found.










One lone reporter
                      asked, “That shouldn’t be, 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 kindly to
                      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





And the people
                      said, “Hallelujah!! Show us the money!”










Then “The One”
                      said, “I shall tax your Capital Gains when you sell your





And the people
                      yawned and the already slumping housing market fully





And He said, “I
                      shall mandate employer-funded health care for EVERY worker
                      and raise the minimum wage, and lower the white collar
                      wage  And I shall also give every person unlimited
                      healthcare and medicine and even transportation to the
                      free 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 perhaps
                      even the oil industry (Cap & Trade/Carbon Tax)
                      and though electricity rates will skyrocket, we shall
                      soon build wind farms and solar power
                      stations and drive green cars that I shall mandate in





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 ($10/week) isn’t enough to
                      cover your extra expenses ($3,000/year), we shall bail you
                      out. Just sign up with ACORN and your troubles are over!”
                        “Only the fat cats will have to





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










And so it came to
                      pass that employers, facing spiraling costs and
                      ever-higher taxes, raised their prices and laid off
                      workers; though they sold much less of their
                      products.   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.










So “The One” again
                      blamed the prior administration, extended unemployment
                      benefits to a year, bailed out his favorite banks, and
                      then took over the banks and auto industries.  “The
                      One” said, “I am the “The One” – The Messiah – and I’m
                      here to save you!  We shall just print more money
                      so the government will have enough!”
                       “Surely one trillion dollars will make everyone
                      happy.”  And immediately the Fed complied and
                      the money presses





                      reconsidered their one trillion dollars of loans to the
US ,,
                      and threatened to call in their debts.










Other foreign
                      trading partners said unto “The One”, “Wait a minute. Your
                      dollar is not worth a pile of camel dung!  You will
                      have to pay more.. for everything.. as your dollar becomes





And the people
                      said, “Wait a minute.. That is unfair!!”





And the world
                      said, “Neither are these other idiotic programs you have










Lo, you have
                      become a Socialist state and a second-rate
                      power. What factories are not owned by your
                      government are owned by us.  Now you shall play
                      by our rules!”





And “The One” said
                      “Americans are arrogant, divisive, and
                      derisive!”   “We will










And the people
                      cried out, “Alas, alas!! What have we done?”





But yea verily, it
                      was too late. The people eventually set upon “The One” and
                      spat upon him and stoned him, and his name was
                      dung. But the once mighty nation was no more; and the
                      once proud people were without sustenance or shelter or
                      hope. And the Change that “The One” had given them was as
                      like unto a poison that had destroyed them from within,
                      and like a whirlwind that consumed all that they had










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 the once-glorious “Home of the Brave and Land of
                      the Free” was no more..







You may                    think this is a fairy tale, but it’s not.  It’s

                      happening RIGHT NOW,  Already everything down to the
                      last couple of lines….
