Obama’s SOTU in brief:
- Raise the minimum wage.
This is a job killer.
- Spend more in infrastructure.
Higher taxes. We’ve been here before. It was called shovel-ready jobs. Which Obama famously yucked-up as not-so-ready.
- Climate Change.
Used to be called Global warming, but the warm weather got in the way of the narrative, hence the relabeling. This is another way of gouging even more taxes out of the American people—to control the weather.
- Gun Control.
This is code for confiscating and banning weapons owned and legally purchased by law-abiding Americans. It’s a scheme to make government and criminals even more powerful. This will not pass. Even I, a mild mannered, middle-class citizen, will never relinquish my right to bear arms.
- Anybody who disagrees with Obama is evil.
Marco Rubio correctly pointed out that Barack Hussein Obama demonizes anyone who disagrees with him.
Of course, this is what community agitators do. They agitate and divide—black against white, rich against poor, etc.—in order to conquer.
We do not have a President. We have a Democrat-Socialist-Alinskyite regime.
When Obama says “we,” he means government.
Obama is a classic Marxist. He sees nothing beyond government, nothing beyond a highly regulated society. He does not see or recognize the individual. And of course, he does not recognize metaphysics: man’s relationship to the universe, to nature, to G-d.
He is a man who, like Marxists everywhere, does not recognize basic psychology. Obama and his fellow travelers believe that man is motivated purely by materialism, by physical need and desires. The spiritual dimension is of no consequence. The infinite mirrors of human consciousness is reflexively reduced to a specific political ideology. Individual aspirations and achievements have been rewritten as the work of an amorphous collective, the Obama we.
Obama is steeped in a rigid political agenda. Like a Stalinist bureaucrat, or a mad, narcissistic New Age preacher, he plows over dissent and ignores economic realities, all the while scorning and caricaturing the very beliefs and values he claims to represent. His is the utopian dream world of the prosperous political class whose lives are dedicated to a bloated, dogma-ridden, authoritarian government.
In Obama’s America we no longer make stuff in order to prosper and live a better life.
In Obama’s America, we manufacture government in order to make more government.
