Can you not see that Obama is intentionally dividing and polarizing this country while campaigning to unite it? No serious person can claim that abortion is not a polarizing and divisive issue. No serious person can claim that the vote at Obama’s convention to allow the singular appearance of the word God in the Democratic platform is not a polarizing and divisive issue. Ramming through two different, unread, 3000 page, healthcare bills opposed by the entire other party and members of his own party, as well as the majority of Americans and 26 states is obviously polarizing and divisive Same sex marriage/traditional family values is a polarizing and divisive issue. Angering your traditional allies (e.g. the Poles, the Czechs, the Brits, the Israeli’s) while appeasing enemies who vow to destroy us… is polarizing and divisive.
Of course, Obama and the poster about Romney on abortion put out by Democratic Underground “rub people’s emotions raw and hype their resentments.” That is exactly what they are designed to do. Please read “The True Believer” by Eric Hoffer and figure out which character is Obama. By the way, The Democratic Underground bounces people who oppose their positions; how’s that for democracy?
How is it OK for Obama to ‘evolve’ his position on a red meat issue like same-sex marriage/traditional family values but, according to Jonny and his post from the Democratic Underground, Romney is a “brown-nosing goober” if Romney’s views on abortion – another red meat – have ‘evolved’ ? And Democrats ignore the fact that Romney explained his ‘evolved’ position on abortion long ago when he actually had to make an executive decision on abortion as governor of Massachusetts. Democrats ignore that it has been Republicans throughout American history fighting and voting for the civil rights of women, blacks, and Native Americans. Democrats ignore the fact that the founder of Planned Parenthood was herself against abortion, and her organization was hijacked by abortionists after she died. Democrats ignore the fact that millions of Americans – as a principled matter of conscience – do not want to be forced to pay for the killing of an innocent, viable child, and that society (as the founder of Planned Parenthood also believed) should not use abortion as a method of birth control, but most of these same principled people agree that in certain circumstances abortion is a matter to be handled by the parents and their doctor. What Democrats ignore will hurt you.
One of my Senators, Obama’s coach for the first debate, Senator John Kerry, (D-Mass.) told the U.S. Senate on 8/1/2012, ‘The situation facing the planet because of climate change is “as dangerous” as the possibility of war over Iran’s nuclear activities, delivering a monumental example of moral relativism in what Kerry’s office described as “a major address and current assessment of the global climate change challenge.” Kerry acknowledged the success of tens of thousands of American scientists who question the notion of human-induced global warming. He compared these skeptics to flat-earthers and decried what he called a “concerted assault on reason.” Obama’s chief science advisor, John Holdren, and others in the administration derogatorily refer to skeptical scientists as deniers, linking them to holocaust deniers, and some have suggested that they be tracked down and treated. The rouge regulations of Obama’s EPA, carbon taxes, high energy prices, UN taxes on financial transactions, transfer of sovereignty under UN Law of the Sea Treaty and UN Agenda 21 and multiple UN IPCC Climate Change treaties – all of which are aggressively promoted by Kerry, Obama, Gore, Clinton and their media propagandists – are heavily disputed, unethical at their core and designed to structure a class-based society, bitterly divided by wealth, whose citizens will once again become subjects to government, enslaved by taxes and regulations. It is a giant reflection of our failure as a people, that America, whose reserves of hydrocarbon resources are the largest on the planet, first could elect an un-vetted President who campaigned saying that energy prices will necessarily skyrocket under his policies, and even worse, then when he is elected and energy prices do in fact skyrocket, millions of Americans apparently will vote to re-elect him. This is the wake up call of history, a great people have from their ranks freely elected dictators who have murdered millions from their ranks.
“Liberals seem to assume that, if you don’t believe in their particular political solutions, then you don’t really care about the people that they claim to want to help.” ~ Thomas Sowell.
Let me connect the dots to for you. So-called liberals and so-called progressives claim and probably truly believe that Romney and Ryan don’t care about women dealing with unwanted pregnancy, despite the fact that both R & R have said repeatedly that there must be exceptions for things like rape, incest, and the mother’s health. Those same so-called liberals and progressives ignore the fact that Obama, Boxer and a few others supported grotesque partial birth abortions and even murder of a live-born child after a failed abortion. Today, thankfully, U.S. law prevents these immoral procedures, but if the Obama ‘transformation’ of America continues, we could all be participants in the murder of viable, innocent children, i.e. crimes against humanity, while at the same time setting free millions of violent rapists, pedophiles and murderers from overcrowded prisons. Only a sick society would allow such an abomination.
Democrats just keep pounding the big lies, not realizing that that is the number 1 tool of tyrants. Democrats and many RINO’s are fish in a pot of water, turning up the heat to their own destruction. So-called liberals believe their principles are superior to those of others, and therefore others must compromise on their principles. They are unable to tolerate the liberty that someone else has a principle that is equal to their own. When so-called liberals don’t get their way, they pass laws and go to the courts to mandate/force their way on others. But there is nothing whatsoever liberal or progressive about that, it is another well worn tool of tyranny.
“If you have been voting for politicians who promise to give you goodies at someone else’s expense, then you have no right to complain when they take your money and give it to someone else, including themselves.” ~ Thomas Sowell.
“It is amazing that people who think we cannot afford to pay for doctors, hospitals and medication somehow think that we can afford to pay for doctors, hospitals, medications and a government bureaucracy to administer it.” ~ Thomas Sowell.
“Much of the social history of the Western world, over the past three decades, has been a history of replacing what worked with what sounded good.” ~ Thomas Sowell
“If you have always believed that everyone should play by the same rules and be judged by the same standards, that would have gotten you labeled a radical 60 years ago, a liberal 30 years ago, and a racist today.” ~ Thomas Sowell. I have found this to be true.
“I have never understood why it is “greed” to want to keep the money you’ve earned, but not greed to want to take somebody else’s money[by government mandate].” ~ Thomas Sowell
“Socialism in general has a record of failure so blatant that only an intellectual could ignore or evade it.” ~ Thomas Sowell
If you don’t realize that Obama and his ilk are “transforming” America into a national socialist state (i.e. fascist), then the rest of us must assume that you already lost. The brownshirt banker elite don’t want a communist government, where the government owns all the property and is the centrally planned producer and employer. That’s too much responsibility for them. Nor do they want pure socialism, where the government owns the corporations. Since the early 20th century, so-called liberals and the global banking elites have wanted fascism, where the government controls the corporations, but politicians are not held responsible in elections for failures. The military industrial complex is a perfect example, and was called out as such by President Eisenhower. Giant corporations build things and destroy things under contract to the government, and are mostly run in secret meetings with ‘dark’ programs and unknown budgets. Expect no different from Obamacare. Obamacare (ACA) is the Healthcare Industrial Complex, written by big-insurance, big-legal, big-pharma, big-lobby, and big-hospital corporations. It is 3000 pages and growing, still incomplete, of hundreds of poorly or undefined new agencies and boards, some of which, e.g. IPAB, have no possibility oversight by Congress or the President.
Adolph Hitler used tactics similar to Obama’s to push through a universal healthcare bill, “The National Law for Removing the Distress of the People” bill, also known as “The Enabling Act” which granted Hitler’s Cabinet the authority to enact laws without the participation of the Reichstag [German legislature]. Does this sound at all familiar? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enabling_Act_of_1933
For a glimpse at what Obama’s “transformed” Amerikan future looks like, please read both The Trial and Amerika by Franz Kafka.
Socialist or Fascist?
“Back in the 1920s, however, when fascism was a new political development, it was widely — and correctly — regarded as being on the political left. Jonah Goldberg’s great book “Liberal Fascism” cites overwhelming evidence of the fascists’ consistent pursuit of the goals of the left, and of the left’s embrace of the fascists as one of their own during the 1920s.”
“Mussolini, the originator of fascism, was lionized by the left, both in Europe and in America, during the 1920s. Even Hitler, who adopted fascist ideas in the 1920s, was seen by some, including W.E.B. Du Bois, as a man of the left.”
“It was in the 1930s, when ugly internal and international actions by Hitler and Mussolini repelled the world, that the left distanced themselves from fascism and its Nazi offshoot — and verbally transferred these totalitarian dictatorships to the right, saddling their opponents with these pariahs.”
“What socialism, fascism and other ideologies of the left have in common is an assumption that some very wise people — like themselves — need to take decisions out of the hands of lesser people, like the rest of us, and impose those decisions by government fiat.”
“The left’s vision is not only a vision of the world, but also a vision of themselves, as superior beings pursuing superior ends. In the United States, however, this vision conflicts with a Constitution that begins, “We the People…”
By controlling the minds of youth, persuading the people of the country to support his cause through the use of propaganda, anti-Jew, Hitler gained control of German society and industry. Allied with him were the Islamic tyrannies.
Edward Behrendt, of the Hitler Youth: “If you can capture the minds of young children and persuade them to become dedicated to your cause, your theory of the truth and your theory of what is right and wrong, then you can hold the whole country captive and you have complete control.”
