Recently, a writer for the American Thinker asserted that “no intelligent president would do the things Obama has done”, and went on to conclude that, in fact, Obama “is an intelligent anti-American president” and that he “is not a failure at his job–his job is the failure of our country.” Wow! Couldn’t be more perfectly stated.
Obama’s long and intimate associations with Socialist and Marxist individuals and mentors– Frank Marshall Davis and Bill Ayers being among the more notorious–as well as the support lavished on him by the likes of the Democratic Socialists of American (DSA), an affiliate of the Socialist Internationale, and the Communist Party USA is ample evidence of his warped political and economic propensities. And, of course, his unrelenting and divisive race-baiting and class warfare rhetoric are straight out of Bolshevism’s playbook for achieving political power.
In any event, my greatest worry is the ultimate “what if” question. WHAT IF Obama knows exactly what he’s doing? WHAT IF he is applying the now well-known Cloward & Piven strategy of orchestrating economic collapse in order to impose a Socialist utopia? Such a strategy involves deliberately generating economic turmoil which will lead to societal upheavel which, in turn, will result in the public’s clamoring for authoritarian intervention in order to “save the country” and “restore order”. (And where have we heard that before in the annals of history?) With that “order”, of course, would come the Marxist state, the culmination of all that Progressivism has been so fervently pursuing over the last 100 years.
It should be noted that both the Communist Party USA and the Democratic Socialists of America now openly and unabashedly sing Obama’s praises, their only complaint being that he isn’t “fundamentally transforming the USA” fast enough. Scour their sites for yourselves. That said, given that over 70 members of Congress are bonafide members of the DSA, one has to reasonably wonder how many of these Socialists are also CPU sympathizers as well.
(FYI, among the 70 are Andre Carson (IN-7), of “the Tea Party wants blacks hanging from a tree” infamy and Maxine Waters (CA-35) of “let the Tea Party go to Hell” ignominy. For my NYS compatriots, Carolyn Maloney (NY-14), John Hall (NY-19), M. Hinchey (NY-22), Yvette Clarke (NY-11) and our own Louise Slaughter (NY-28) are also proud DSA members.)
Yes, the foxes are clearly in the coop and our Republic is under seige from within by all manner of Marxist Czars, Socialist legislators, leftist apologists and academics, and their usual coterie of thuggish union allies and useful idiots, underscoring yet once again that history does, in fact, repeat itself with disturbing regularity. By nature, it seems that Man is averse to learning from history, and is predestined to repeating the same painful mistakes of the past. “Stuck on stupid” perfectly describes this age old phenomenon.
In any event, I pray I’m dead wrong and that Obama and his Czars are simply impractical theoreticians and bubble-headed incompetents. But even the casual observer must concede that something is dangerously amiss when so many obviously bright apparatchiks in this Administration continue to insanely press forward with their failed economic policies. One must realistically wonder if these policies really are intended to be remedies or a means to an alien political end? Shouldn’t the stark contrast between the commonsense and demonstratively successful Milton Friedman economic model and Obama’s destructive Keynesian economic approach be blindingly obvious to even the most committed ideologue? Are the Obamanomics advocates genuinely dumb or are they cold and calculating? That question should bother us all.
SO, can we impeach him before it’s too late? Absolutely. We have the majority in the House. BUT, can we remove him from office? Nope! Not so long as the Senate is in Progressive hands.
So what do we do until 2012? Encourage gridlock and relentlessly prepare to electorally remove Obama and his minons from office in 2012. We should also demand of Congress that they stop ceding power to the Executive Branch and that Congress deprive revenue to any federal programs which impede economic recovery or that otherwise impel our country toward the brink of collapse. Most importantly, NO COMPROMISE with Progressive tyranny. Of course, we will be attacked for our “obstructionism” and “stubborn inflexibility”–even our “lack of patriotism”, laughable as that may seem. But, in this pivotal struggle with the radical left we must hang tough.
With the electoral defeat of Obama in 2012–and I don’t think there’s much doubt about that anymore– I think we can reasonably hope that constitutional order will be slowly restored and that all the unconstitutional edicts, fiats, executive orders and laws perpetrated upon the Republic over the past several years will be placed on a fast track to reversal. However, a word of warning: since Progressives plague both parties, achieving this critically important goal will require our continued vigilance and unwavering commiment.
Finally, if the WHAT IF scenario does invade our reality before January 20, 2013, then only civil disobedience and even a willingness to commit ourselves to patriotic rebellion and secession can protect us from tyranny. For that reason, we must not take electoral victory for granted. To dodge electoral defeat, Progressives may very well manufacture a WHAT IF crisis. From all they’ve shown us over the years,I simply don’t put such a cynical, self-serving manipulation past them. Not at all.
So, forewarned is forearmed. Patriots need not–should not–submit to a Marxist takeover merely to restore social order. By definition, social order without constitutional order is tyranny.
