Obama: “We can’t just take comfort in being cynical. We all have a stake in government success, because the government is us, and we’re doing things right.”
Of course, this is consistent with Obama’s infamous “You didn’t build that” lecture.
Obama has a simple and familiar political ideology: Government is the people. The people are the government.
This is classic Marxism—the dictatorship of the proletariat. When it is allowed to flourish, it evolves into Stalinism, Castro’s Cuba, the North Korean gulag, and every cruel, failed socialist state in the Muslim world. Or the crumbling EU, Obama’s vision of paradise on earth.
In fact, the American government is made up of temporarily elected officials.
Conservatives believe that the American government works for the American people. The American people do not, and should not, work for the government.
Our guiding principle is the Constitution, not some snake-oil salesman who ignores our founding documents and shamelessly peddles utopian visions which, when clinically diagnosed, are delusional.
Across the city the Americans crept at a steady, sanguinary fifty feet an hour, shooting, dynamiting, grenading. National Socialist slogans on a broken wall reminded the faithful, auf Deutsch, “For this we thank our Führer,” and “You are nothing, the state is all.”
This is not to say that Obama or the post-modern Democrat party are Nazis.
But they are crypto-Socialists.
And their belief in an all-powerful, regulatory government, as opposed to the infinite value of the individual, is characteristic of totalitarian movements.
And the left in America has barely disguised totalitarian impulses, brilliantly packaged in feel-good slogans, smiley faces, and populist campaigns designed to turn free citizens into compliant subjects.
And just as all totalitarian movements build their ideology around a charismatic leader, Barack Hussein Obama and the Democrats—as they did with the Kennedy clan, and are in the process of doing with the Clintons—have consciously built an Obama cult of personality that—let’s face it—elevated a man who was not qualified to be city dog catcher to the most significant political position in the world.
