How much does he detest Republicans in Congress who recognize the U.S. government is going off the fiscal cliff with out-of-control borrowing and spending and want to place implantation of a mammoth new, broadly unpopular entitlement program, Obamacare, on hold before raising the debt limit once again?
Enough to refuse to negotiate.
I think it’s clear whom Obama hates the most. Don’t you?
He hates most the people who want to crimp his style of uninhibited wealth redistribution on a scale never before seen in human history.
He hates most the people who believe “limited government” is still an operational principle in the U.S. Constitution.
He hates most the people who don’t want to be saddled with more government involvement in the most private parts of their life.
He hates most the people who present him with even the slightest political opposition – no matter how appropriate or civil or legal or peaceful it might be.
That’s whom Obama hates the most.
It’s astonishing to think about it.
And, even worse, it’s appalling to watch his lapdogs in the press act like it is the Republicans in Congress who are being unreasonable by not simply signing on to whatever reckless and irresponsible policies Obama embraces.
How reckless and irresponsible would another hike in the debt limit be without a commitment to further cuts and restraints in spending?
It would be even more irresponsible and reckless than committing an act of war on another sovereign nation without cause.
Because it is the moral equivalent of declaring a war on our own country.
There is nothing that will bring America to its knees faster than the impending economic judgment looming just around the corner.
It’s not a matter of “if.” It’s a matter of “when.”
I don’t believe Obama is too stupid to understand that.
I believe he is smart enough to know it.
So why does he continue to borrow and spend without restraint?
I can only conclude he does so because he wants to bring on that economic judgment. He no doubt believes it will empower him to take even more draconian, emergency-style actions in his bid to “fundamentally transform America.”
This is what his entire life has been about.
He hasn’t changed since he first ran for president.
He hasn’t changed since he was an ACORN community organizer in Chicago.
I take him at his word when he says he wants to “spread the wealth around” or when he says he wants to “fundamentally transform America.” He’s never changed his tune. What he is doing as president – at least domestically – is just what we would expect from someone who wants to heighten the contradictions of capitalism, or, as Richard Andrew Cloward and Frances Fox Piven would say, to hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands, thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse.
Obama hates anyone who stands in his way of achieving those goals. That’s what I think. Am I wrong? I mean, isn’t it obvious?
Would it be right to allow Obama to borrow the rope he needs to hang us all?
Or would it be right for Congress to exercise its constitutional power as arguably the most powerful branch of government to take that rope out of his hands and begin dismantling the gallows?
The only thing surprising to me is that it has taken so long for Republicans in Congress to recognize they have allowed themselves become accomplices in Obama’s war on America.
