Freedom’s Armageddon

ThinkerSurrounded and cheered on by a well-screened and admiring group of Obamunists the President openly mocked and sneered at his political opponents [video] [text]. Resorting to Saul Alinksy’s tool box is not Presidential. In a few moments of displayed contempt, he stripped some more dignity from the Office of The President of the United States. That is assuming that there is any dignity left in the People’s house.

You turn on the news, you’ll see the same folks are still shouting about there’s going to be an end of the world because this bill passed. I’m not exaggerating. Leaders of the Republican Party, they called the passage of this bill “Armageddon.” Armageddon. “End of freedom as we know it.”

So after I signed the bill, I looked around to see if there any asteroids falling or some cracks opening up in the Earth. It turned out it was a nice day. Birds were chirping. Folks were strolling down the Mall. People still have their doctors.

He replaced it with trash talking more suited for the street than to the world’s most powerful man and a presumed statesman. It was the President after all that encouraged his following to knock on doors and get in people’s faces. I find nothing dignified about that nor is it very inspiring leadership. But, that is just my view. I am sure some still get thrills up their legs when the opponents of Obamunism get their come-uppance when the man himself gets in their faces.

Not only did he mock and sneer at his political opponents, he also did it to a majority of American people who oppose the leftward sprint led by his government takeover of healthcare. Yes he did! He is also testing one of freedom’s most enduring principles. You cannot govern against the will of the people.

There is more cheerful news sneaking out on the weekend. Did you notice that personal income is down across the country? To find out how your state fares, type “personal income down 2009” into your preferred Internet search engine. The results should not be too surprising. When unemployment goes up and personal income drops guess what else drops? The tax revenues that pay for the socialist utopia promised. At some point, there will be no more wealth to redistribute. Social Security is now upside down, meaning that it will pay out more money than is paid in by taxpayers. A Congressional Budget Office report shows that we are on a glide path that will put our debt at 90 percent of gross domestic product. How long before we are upside down there as well. Major companies (AT&T, Caterpillar, Deer..) have just forecast the enormous costs to them of nationalized healthcare. And there are the tax increases that we were promised would not happen.

Let’s see now. Unemployment is up. Personal income is down. Social Security is upside down several years quicker than anticipated. Ninety percent of what we produce will soon belong to our debtors. High costs to businesses will be transferred to us in increased prices or more unemployment. Our already exorbitant taxes are going even higher. It is not quite the end of freedom Mr. President, but we can see it from here. Now I ask you, what is not to like about such a great deal? The President’s adoring little birds are chirping about it like babes waiting for Mamma bird to feed them. The American Eagle, however, is scowling.

Narcissists certainly have grandiose opinions of themselves. That is why they like it if someone does compare their deeds to something as devastating as Armageddon. They like to believe they are powerful enough to bring about such destruction or the end of freedom. I think, if I was the President I would be cautious about who I mocked.

The seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air, and out of the temple came a loud voice from the throne, saying, “It is done!” Then there came flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder and a severe earthquake. No earthquake like it has ever occurred since man has been on earth, so tremendous was the quake. The great city split into three parts, and the cities of the nations collapsed. God remembered Babylon the Great and gave her the cup filled with the wine of the fury of his wrath. Every island fled away and the mountains could not be found. From the sky huge hailstones of about a hundred pounds each fell upon men. And they cursed God on account of the plague of hail, because the plague was so terrible. – Revelation 16 NIV

No Mr. President it is not Armageddon. It is also not the end of freedom. The problem for you and your Obamunist colleagues is that Americans have looked down the path on which you have placed us. We see where it leads. If we allow, it does lead to Freedom’s Armageddon. That is a road we will not travel on with you.
