Thugocracy: Using the power of government to punish anyone who opposes, sweeping invasion of privacy on all Americans, arming murderous drug cartels to advance a political agenda, strong arming businesses to back the disastrous Obamacare which the people did not want. Obama has stated his disdain for the Constitution. Now he is showing us how much he disregards it.
Nixon used the IRS to target enemies and was disgraced into resigning. Obama uses the IRS, the EPA, the DOJ, the DHS, and the Health Dept and he is defended and acclaimed.
“Obama has never stood for individualism, capitalism, or liberty. Everything he does has the reek of statism, collectivism, and tyranny, but not because he is an incompetent bumbler — though he may be in many areas, sans TOTUS — it’s because he is a statist and a collectivist and the citizens of our country naïvely gave the reins of power to a tyrant” – Richard Boyd author America Vs. Anti-American.
Obama said “If you look at the victories and failures of the civil rights movement and its litigation strategy in the court. I think where it succeeded was to invest formal rights in previously dispossessed people, so that now I would have the right to vote. I would now be able to sit at the lunch counter and order as long as I could pay for it Id be o.k. But, the Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth, and of more basic issues such as political and economic justice in society. To that extent, as radical as I think people try to characterize the Warren Court, it wasn’t that radical. It didn’t break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the founding fathers in the Constitution, at least as its been interpreted and Warren Court interpreted in the same way, that generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties. Says what the states cant do to you. Says what the Federal government cant do to you, but doesn’t say what the Federal government or State government must do on your behalf, and that hasn’t shifted and one of the, I think, tragedies of the civil rights movement was, um, because the civil rights movement became so court focused I think there was a tendency to lose track of the political and community organizing and activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalition of powers through which you bring about redistributive change. In some ways we still suffer from that.”
Equality is not enough for Obama. He wants revenge, retribution in the form of “redistribution” which is communist speak for taking away from one group and giving it to another by force of government. He proved that when he reopened the Pigford Ag Department discrimination case and redistributed an extra billion dollars to anyone who claimed to have been discriminated against. He proved that when he appointed the racist Eric Holder to head the DOJ. A DOJ that has refused to apply the same voter protection laws to white people as to black people. A DOJ that pushed assault weapons to Mexican drug cartels so that in the words of Holder the government could “change the way we think about guns.”
Thomas Sowell said Obama has turned his back on a color blind society and instead wants a “getting even, a revenge society.” This is exemplified by the appointment of Eric Holder as Attorney General and Holder’s actions with that position.
For Obama, his ends justify any means. He has given billions of dollars to “green” companies (many have gone broke at taxpayers expense) that have ties to campaign contributors, more billions to unions in the supposed auto bailout, and billions more to keep government union workers employed.
He has perpetually lied to the American people. He said he would cut the deficit in half and doubled it. He railed against debt and then tripled it. He said he would take a scalpel to every wasteful program yet wild spending by agencies has reached scandalous proportions. He said every bill would be posted for three days and then passed Obamacare in the dead of night without anyone having a chance to read it. He said he would have the most transparent presidency ever. He meets with lobbyists outside the White House so records won’t be kept. He covered up the Fast and Furious gun scandal by executive order. His staff and government agencies have private email accounts to hide what they are up to. He hid the truth about the terrorist attack on the Benghazi embassy to protect his reelection. He claims to know nothing about the IRS targeting those who oppose him, the NSA spying on millions of Americans or how the Benghazi lies were put out.
About the only promises Obama has kept are to make our electricity rates “skyrocket”; to “fundamentally transform America”; to create “redistributive change” and to make the agenda of SEIU the agenda of America.
