Enemy of the State

Now that Barack Obama has been elected president, the question is no longer how will he change America, the question is now, can America survive the Obama presidency? He ran for office as an agent of change, but no one could imagine the severity of change Obama had in mind.

Massive financial bailouts, redistribution of wealth, class warfare, and a complete lack of leadership or comprehension of his responsibilities, is what Barack Obama has brought to office. He is the president of doom and gloom, a tragically incompetent individual who has managed to destroy confidence in America in only forty-seven days. He has taken a disastrous situation, and created a complete catastrophe, and he will only make it worse.

Obama, at this point, is an island. He did not, and could not, bring in a close circle of advisors who would assist him in the early days of his presidency. Obama's closest advisors are made up of corrupt Chicago politicians, and radicals. Neither group able to gain cabinet appointments or high level positions in the White House. Obama has endured embarrassing disappointments in his selections for cabinet positions. Bill Richardson, under investigation for corruption, Tom Daschle, tax evader and pathalogical liar, Tim Geithner, tax cheat in charge of the IRS. The depresssing list of failed candidates grows every week.

It has become increasingly evident that Obama, despite his "rock star" status, lacks the ability to attract the best and brightest to his administration. Just ask Tim Geithner, Treasury Secretary, he has fifteen vacant slots in senior level positions that he simply cannot fill. Qualified economists and Wall Street execs are not picking up when the caller ID displays a DC area code. These people know that they will need jobs after Obama is through, and they want no part of this train wreck. Not surprising considering that Obama's socialist beliefs directly contradict the capalist system that has made them successful.

Obama has yet to learn that his words and actions are directly responsible for the rapid decline in the stock market. Now under 7000 points, the market continues to decline because Obama is terrifying investors and they are running scared from his idealogy of wealth redistribution. The President's use of scare tactics is proof that he lacks an understanding of the economy, Wall Street, and the American people. The ignorant will almost always resort to fear mongering when devoid of ideas and lacking the ability to lead through competence.

Obama has begun a war of idealogies, pushing his socialist agenda on the American public through massive spending bills designed to take money from the productive and give it to society's unproductive. His socialist ideals have been proven failures time and again, but he will continue to punish American workers until we remove him from office.

In Ayn Rand's 1938 classic "Anthem", she describes a society devoid individuality and knowledge. A culture of blind followers where questioning authority was a criminal offense. In other words, Obama's vision of utopia. There is a great passage in that story that opposes Obama's strategic plan for the future of America;

"The word We is a lime poured over men, which sets and hardens to stone, and crushes all beneath it, and that which is white and that which is black are lost equally in the grey of it. It is the word by which the depraved steal the virtue of the good, by which the weak steal the might of the strong, by which the fools steal the wisdom of the sages.

What is my joy if all hands, even the unclean, can reach into it? What is my wisdom , if even the fools can dictate to me? What is my freedom , if all creatures, even the botched and the impotent, are my masters? What is my life, if I am to bow, to agree and to obey?"

Botched and impotent pretty much describes this administration. Obama is working to stifle secret ballots at work, punish success, kill incentive, take taxpayer money and bailout those who don't deserve it. My God, what have "We" done?

"Obama has yet to learn that his words and actions are directly responsible for the rapid decline in the stock market."

Excellent post, but most likely Obama knows very well what his words and actions do. They're part of the crash/burn America as we know it intention.

Alinsky again. People cry for government when they have nothing. And the chaos, the 'urgent crisis' is only an opportunity/excuse for greater central control. Very sad, isn't it?

A recent example of how it works is the latest AIG "bonus" outrage, which accomplishes two purposes:

1) The bonus issue distracts from the serious problem -- AIG sent untold billions of its TARP bailout to a few US firms and several foreign banks. Why did they do that? Nobody knows, least of all our government. American taxpayers now own 80% of AIG, but our 'steward,' the government, required no oversight.

2) The outrage generated over the bonuses also primes Congress and the masses to pass laws that destroy the very foundation of our free enterprise system and our Constitution -- the contract. Disheartening to say the least. Time to stand up.
