President Obama was out and about yesterday and not playing golf. He was first in Missouri stumping for Carnahan and then on to Nevada (14% unemployment) to stump for his right hand wing nut Harry Reid. In Missouri, he was touting the benefits of a green truck factory which, by the way, is not hiring, is three times more expensive than your average fossil fuel fueled trucks, and is exhausting the stimulus money (our tax dollars) even as we speak.
President Obama…from your own mouth we get ‘…under crap & trade, electric rates are necessarily going to skyrocket’, so why would anyone in their right mind want to procure anything that is powered by electricity. Oh yeah, he is also creating about 3,000 jobs total in a couple of states including mine in the manufacture of solar panels. That’s it! What will he do when the sun refuses to shine? That day is in the near future. Volcanic ash can preclude sun shine and even cool the earth’s temperature which should appeal to ‘global warming’ alarmists even as they blame the volcanic eruptions on former President George Bush.
Our worst suspicions about Barack Obama are coming true. He is not a centrist as he claimed to be. He is a leftist, and he is destroying our way of life. Obama could be perpetrating the greatest fraud in American history. He could be an illegitimate president, and one who intentionally seeks to undermine our country. By the time the truth comes out, the damage to may be irreparable.
Barack Obama’s meteoric rise to power has been truly remarkable. He served a mere 143 days in the U.S. Senate prior to forming an exploratory committee for his presidential candidacy in 2007. He has risen from obscurity to celebrity status in a very short time.
With the multitude of mysteries that surround him, it is a wonder why there has not been the interest in investigating his personal history and nefarious connections at, say, a fraction of the interest of what followed John F. Kennedy’s assassination.
The Obama administration continues the nation’s travels, since Franklin Roosevelt’s socialist New Deal
in the 1930s, along what Friedrich von Hayek called The Road To Serfdom.
The fundamental thrust of liberal-progressive-socialist governments such as that of President Obama is to abrogate the rights of private property, aiming at the holy grail of their secular religion: redistribution of income and wealth to reduce everyone to an equally low state of economic equality.
But people don’t readily abandon what they have labored to earn and save. As Lenin purportedly said, “Socialism emanates from the business end of a gun barrel.” Hence the relentless push of liberal-progressives to expand the power of collectivized government in Washington.
The case can be made that, of all our rights enumerated in the Bill of Rights, the Fifth Amendment’s private property rights are the most important. People who are secure in their own property can maintain their rights to free speech and other aspects of constitutional government. People in a collectivized, socialistic government lose the will and the ability to fight for their rights. They slowly sink into dependence upon the political state, just as the German Empire’s Chancellor Otto von Bismarck anticipated when he enacted the world’s first systematic welfare-state program.
