Well, it’s finally happened. We have reached the point where it has become so evident that President Barack Hussein Obama is just this side of evil incarnate and that his administration and radical leftists in Congress are constitutional criminals that those who continue to support them and their policies are either ideologically kindred (and thus, enemies of the republic), or so pitifully dim that they may not merit rescue from a burning building. No … I think I’ll save that dog over there; at least he may wind up being of benefit to humankind someday …
Thus, I believe that these supporters – whether politicos, press, or rank-and-file voters – have forfeited the right to be taken in any way seriously.
The ongoing controversy relative to the Obamacare rollout provided another recent object lesson in this vein. The president’s attempt to blame health insurance companies for soaking customers in direct response to regulations enacted in keeping with his health-care law is not only beyond craven, but presumes an almost incomprehensible level of stupidity on the part of American consumers.
The people to whom I’ve referred in recent weeks as those who are waking up but not yet sure what they’re waking up to are the ones it is now our responsibly to reach. The catalyst for their current discomfort is of course the “sticker shock” they are experiencing – or will shortly experience – as a result of their health insurance policies being canceled and their premiums skyrocketing due to Obamacare. Despite their profound vexation, these individuals are still potentially susceptible to the aforementioned spin being advanced by the administration, Democrats and the press.
This susceptibility will probably not prove as consequential as it has over the last five years because of the economic gravity of the situation. Politicians have known for a long time that the pocketbook is the hardest place one can hit voters, and Obamacare certainly qualifies as a hard hit. The feeble excuses being offered by the president and his minions are not holding up to public scrutiny, nor are they likely to; concurrently, other positions and actions Obama has taken are also coming into broader question.
The increasing trepidation on the part of Democratic lawmakers, strategists and power players has been evidenced by the recent appeals some have made to Obama that he defer, delay, or eliminate those components of the law that are giving rise to these conditions – conditions that could be disastrous to the party over the next two election cycles. Statements made earlier this week by former President Bill Clinton (wherein he said Obama should honor his numerous declarations that Americans would be able to retain their health-care coverage) will no doubt prove damaging to the administration’s narrative and short-term agenda.
The cognitive dissonance from which Americans affected by Obamacare are suffering stems from plain ignorance of the situation at hand; they had merely been living their lives and taking the president, Congress and the press at their word. They had no cause to believe that even a politician could lie as much, as frequently and as indisputably as Obama has and that the trusted fourth estate could behave in such conspiratorial fashion. So they are desperately confused as to how this all came about.
These conditions present the best and greatest opportunity that patriotic Americans have had to enlighten our neighbors and take definitive steps toward defeating the collectivists since Obama took office – perhaps the best and greatest opportunity we have had in decades, given that our neighbors are particularly vulnerable at present and crave cogent explanations.
Obamacare and the nefarious undertakings of this administration now coming to light are the smoking guns we needed to prove to millions of Americans that we have indeed been experiencing an insidious and incremental encroachment of Marxism over many years, just as Nikita Khrushchev predicted in 1959 and just as conservatives have increasingly warned over almost as many years since.
These are the only things that (at present) have the potency to overcome the cult of Obama and the perceived imperative of preserving Our First Black President’s legacy, and they must be employed via grass-roots effort. With these wedges, we have the opportunity to reveal to America that not only is Barack Obama a treasonous criminal, but he and his cabal are long-seasoned operatives, carefully maneuvered into their positions for the express purpose of ushering in that which was unthinkable in 1959: Communism.
If these wedges are properly utilized, we will be able to make sense to these perplexed Americans of the societal dissolution they have witnessed over the preceding 50 years. They will understand why it was imperative for the political left to encourage us to stray from a moral center and embrace the secular humanist worldview, and how the dismal, destructive results thereof have been of great use to them. They will understand why it has been necessary for the left to foster an irrational fear and hatred of Christianity and Judeo-Christian values. The weakening of our economy and international standing will be seen as the strategy of puerile, petty walking mediocrities who simply hate America and want to see it burn, rather than the incompetent bungling of imprudent weaklings.
When our neighbors perceive the breadth and depth of this administration’s criminality and the culture of corruption that has inculcated itself into our government, they will call for a real fundamental transformation of America – back into a constitutional republic. They will realize the need to return to our philosophical roots of government, education, integrity and to constitutional principles. They will realize that they have been exploited by a parasitic, avaricious ruling class with the worldview of King Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette, and that they are in no way obliged to countenance their actions for one more day.
