Elections Have Consequences
Russian Prime Minister Vladamir Putin has said the US should take a lesson from the pages of Russian history and not exercise "excessive intervention in economic activity and blind faith in the state’s omnipotence".
"In the 20th century, the Soviet Union made the state’s role absolute. In the long run, this made the Soviet economy totally uncompetitive. This lesson cost us dearly. I am sure nobody wants to see it repeated," said Putin
He’s right. Nobody – except Obama and the literal handful of radical leftists with whom he has surrounded himself like White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi, and the faceless White House ‘tzars’ who have supplanted Cabinet Secretaries.
These people are all too found of repeating about socialism: Just because it has failed every time it has been tried does not mean there is anything wrong with the idea of socialism. It just takes the right people at the right time to make it work.
Obama and his cronies believe they are the right people at the right time – just as all the others before them. And we are witnessing the beginning of that failure which, unfortunately, will utterly transform and restructure the United States of America into something resembling a Third World country and basket case.
The quickest way to destroy an existing civilization, other than militarily, is by bankrupting it from within. Thus, we have the mind-numbing trillion dollar Plans, Budgets, and Supplements. That there is no rational way to generate this kind of money, even if they tax the entire income of the wealth at 100% does not bother them; they just lie, and a docile public nods back off to sleep – like the sheep they have become – dreaming of Papa Big Government taking care of their every need and want.
Putin also said, "we must assess the real situation and write off all hopeless debts and ‘bad’ assets. True, this will be an extremely painful and unpleasant process. Far from everyone can accept such measures, fearing for their capitalization, bonuses, or reputation. However, we would ‘conserve’ and prolong the crisis, unless we clean up our balance sheets."
If Obama and his cronies were actually telling the truth about wanting to repair the US economy, they would be following something like Putin’s advise, but they are not. That solution would not leave them in power, that would not give them control over every aspect of a citizen’s life – from cradle to grave. Power and Control: these are the words which send thrills up a radical socialist’s back.
Tea Parties are being organized nation-wide to protest against these policies, but what effect they will have remains to be seen. However, should the Tea Parties prove effective, and the Obama Media become unable to counter them, then, they and the people involved will have to be silenced and discredited by other means.
Once that road is breached by Team Obama, as the US Public watches the dollar sink below the Peso, as their children’s public eduction scores fall beneath Uruguay, as the public realizes it has been swindled, Team Obama will need to institute more repressive measures, else they lose all power. Then, the fun begins!
