In my other life, when I was national security adviser to Communist Romaniaâ€™s President Nicolae Ceausescu, I wrote the lyrics of his ode to â€œchange.â€ Ceausescu pretended that his predecessor had devastated the country, and he pledged to change that change. In those days I heard that ode to change a thousand times, and today I am stunned by its similarity with the Democratic Partyâ€™s â€œchange.
...I paid with two death sentences â€” from my native Romania â€” for the privilege of becoming a citizen of this unique land of opportunity, and I am incredibly proud to be an American.
On that fateful day of July 28, 1978, when the U.S. military airplane that brought me to freedom landed at Andrews Air Force Base near Washington, D.C., I was exactly three months short of the round age of fifty, and I more than ever regretted that I had kept postponing that step for so many years. The joy of finally becoming part of this magnanimous country was surpassed only by the joy of simply being alive.
On November 9, 1989, when I watched on television as the Berlin Wall was being torn down, my eyes were full of tears. The whole world was expressing its gratitude to the United States for her 45 years of successful efforts to keep freedom, democracy, and law-abiding liberty alive in most of the world.
Is my adoptive country perfect? Of course not. Since 1792, however, elections have been the American way of correcting the past and improving the future. Fortunately, we still have free elections. Last November, an overwhelming majority of Americans expressed their disgust with some of the members of the Congress who wanted to â€œchangeâ€ America, and they voted them out of office.
Letâ€™s hope that in November 2012 the voters will restore American exceptionalism. For that to happen, letâ€™s also hope that the candidates running for the White House will stop fighting with each other, and will start focusing on how they want to cure the countryâ€™s current economic and political ills.â€

To all the Democrats reading this. Please pay attention to what is happening. Your Party is not the old JFK Democrat Party anymore. It is in lock-step with the Communist Party. Take it from someone who should know like author Ion Mihai Pacepa.
