Folks – for me this is a historic vote.
I am not equipped to see the future and will not predict that this election will be a watershed moment as history is best determined by looking back, not forward. Too often, the terms “making history” are overused because we simply are not equipped to recognize it while we are in it. We more accurately call it “life”.
One thing that I do know is that another four years of Obama will alter the American political and social landscape beyond recovery.
Obamacare will become so entrenched that there is will be no possibility of unwinding it. Just as the other “progressive improvements” of Social Security, Medicare, compulsory progressive income taxes (Current Tax Payment Act of 1943), the corruption of the Tenth Amendment and the de facto nationalization of industry have become acceptable and treated as “business as usual”, it will be added to the growing welfare state and 1/7th of our national economy will be controlled by the federal government. Single payer is but a half a step away at that point.
Central government control and a malignant form of Marxism will be prosecuted out in the open. There are already so many Marxists in the Democratic Party masquerading as “liberals” and “progressives” that Democrat control means a radical slide toward central control of the economy, more regulations and laws and more intrusion into private freedoms. It is unavoidable.
Obamacare is but one example. The liberals argue that they don’t want the government in their bedrooms but Obamacare doesn’t just hide in the closet and film you, it is in the bed with you. Whether you agree or not, the ability of a government to force any organization to provide anything that is against their beliefs constitutes an invasion of privacy – as in the case of Catholic organizations being required to distribute abortifacients and contraceptives.
Barack Obama is a Marxist in all but textbook definition. He has surrounded himself with radicals and other structural Marxists because that is how he was reared, that is what he knows, that is who he is. The only reason that he is not more open about it is that he is currently constrained by the few remaining souls who are willing to stand on principle to prevent a vision of total government control from taking over.
Whether by design or pure incompetence, he has brought the country to the brink of witnessing the Cloward-Piven theory of social revolution come to fruition. There is no doubt that the “progressive” policies of the second Bush term set the table, but Obama accelerated the delivery and consumption of the “progressive” feast.
I once wrote that Obama is just the foot in the door:
In him alone rested the hope for changing the American system to a socialist/big government paradise once and for all. After all, he was perfect, untouchable, unassailable – political god made man. They thought that he had the communication skills and likeability of Ronald Reagan, the political ability of Clinton and the ideology of Walter Mondale – he was more than perfect, as Chris Matthews would say, he was “pluperfect”. His political DNA was the primordial soup from which a socialist Utopia could evolve. If they could anchor him as a starting point, the next candidate could be even father to the left.
And I still believe that to be true.
If Obama gets a second chance – it will get worse – because another four years of Cloward-Piven Lite opens the door to more “progressive” politicians to build on the base of “progressivism” that will be cemented in place during a second Obama term. Remember the phrase “too big to fail”? People thought they were talking about the banks – they weren’t. They were talking about their vision for the welfare state.
This man and his ideology must be stopped if there is any hope of retaining the America of our youth for our children and grandchildren.
I was wrong when I admonished everybody to vote like your life depended on it. That was an understatement – your children’s lives depend on it.
