This may be the spookiest political ad ever: Chuck Norris, along with his wife Gena, have offered a dire warning to America, claiming that Americans face "socialism," (*Gasp!*) or something worse," and "1,000 years of darkness" if President Obama is re-elected for a second term in November.
In the Youtube video above, Norris and his wife warn of a "growing concern" that the America we know can be "lost forever" if Obama is re-elected.
“If we look to history, our great country and freedom are under attack,” Norris says. “We’re at a tipping point and, quite possibly, our country as we know it may be lost forever if we don’t change the course in which our country is headed.”
Gena Norris then cites the statistic that in 2008 more than 30 million Evangelical Christians stayed home on Voting Day and Obama won. *Gasp!*
She then quotes the late President Ronald Reagan, "You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into 1,000 years of darkness. If we fail, at least let our children and our children’s children say of us we justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done.”
Oh, Chuck and Gena? The name of that speech you quoted, "A Time for Choosing," also known as "The Speech," was presented during the 1964 U.S. presidential election campaign by future president Ronald Reagan on behalf of Republican candidate Barry Goldwater.
Goldwater lost.The world did not end, or even plunge into 1,000 years of darkness.
