I’m usually the one pointing out the red flags around Obama.
But yesterday I was put in the unusual position of having to calm someone who is despondent about the prospect of an Obama presidency down. This Cuban American was going down the list of similarities between Obama and the Castro.
Obama, you see, was abandoned by his father and had another name until he was a teenager just like Castro….yaddah…yaddah…blah…blah…blah. They had a pretty extensive list.
Over some cold ones, we came to the conclusion that even if Obama is a Marxist, he won’t have enough time to transform our fledging socialist goverment unto a full fledge totalitarian state in eight years. There’s just not enough time. I mean, even Chavez hasn’t been able to do it to Venezuela in 10 years.
That could never happen here…
So we kept watching the football game. We came to the conclusion that even after Obama’s impending victory, we would still be able to watch football on TV or go to the game and keep making our mortgage payments to the government and our car lease payment to the government owned bank. Nothing’s changed, really. Just a temporary swing of the pendulum to the left.
So I get up this morning and find out that the Socialist wing of the Democratic party is busy at work planning the birth of the People’s Republic of America.
Barney Frank wants to cut military spending by 25%. John, reporting for duty, Kerry wants a “The New Deal II”. The, there’s a plan out there to socialize my 401K .
All this on top of what looks like the criminalization of dissent as evidenced by the attacks on Joe the Plumber and the upcoming push to re-institute the “fairness doctrine.”
Meanwhile, “Russia's Central Elections Committee has also assigned its Centre for the Study of Election Technology to review the U. S. election campaign.” A preliminary report obtained by the Russian press formerly know as Pravda, the official organ of the Communist Party of USSR, and organization that knows a thing or two about propaganda says that the American MSM, the official organ of the Democratic Party of the United States has given Barack Obama a “hidden advantage.”
Still, all this only takes to a European style Social Democracy. With time, their inefficient nature causes a swing to the right as has happened in France and Germany, for example. Equilibrium.
And even in the European socialist governments there hasn’t been any serious erosion of civil rights…
…Unless there’s some international crisis happens that could cause martial law to be declared.
What are the chances of that?
It’s not like anyone’s guaranteeing a crisis or anything. Is it?
Ok. So I called my friend this morning and told him that if a white pigeon lands on Obama during his inauguration speech, I’m outta here.
