The Soft Tyranny of the NOBama Regime

There are so many great blog posts out there today that it is hard for me to choose a headliner. However, the irony of seeing the blog Stop The ACLU cover a topic that claims "Even the ACLU is opposing this Gestapo-like effort" show how utterly over the top the stupid totalitarian Obama Regime has become!

I first heard about the "The Modern Militia Movement" questionnaire on Glen Beck's radio show.

Stop the ACLU blog goes into much more detail, sharing the fact that a Secret document leaked: The Obama administration is branding libertarians and abortion opponents as hidden terrorists.

Excerpt:


“Militia members most commonly associate with 3rd party political groups,” the report reads. “It is not uncommon for militia members to display Constitutional Party, Campaign for Liberty or Libertarian material.” Other potential signals of militia involvement, according to the report, are possession of the Gagsden “Don’t Tread on Me” flag or the widely available anti-income tax film “America: Freedom to Fascism.”


I wonder whether or not they will eventually include Mark Levin's new book, Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto on their list?

Isn't it awful to see this terribly inept Resident in the White House and his neo-Marxist buddies continue to destroy not only the financial sector of our nation; but in addition to that, the liberty, freedoms, and pursuit of happiness that is guaranteed in our Constitution and other Charters of Freedom?

Excerpt from American Thinker article:


The overall plan of the book is simple and logical. Chapter One, "On Liberty and Tyranny," lays out the basic conceptual scheme. Levin contrasts two opposing political philosophies currently in contention: The Conservative versus the Statist. He grounds the Conservative in the values and insights on human nature of the American Founders, and does so economically and convincingly. For the other side of the debate, he quite correctly rejects the label "liberal", because in current usage the term has become entirely divorced from its literal meaning. He writes:



The Modern Liberal believes in the supremacy of the state.... For the Modern Liberal, the individual's imperfection and personal pursuits impede the objectives of a utopian state. In this, Modern Liberalism promotes what French Historian Alexis de Tocqueville called soft tyranny, which becomes increasingly more oppressive, partially leading to hard tyranny.... As the word "liberal" is, in its classical meaning, the opposite of authoritarian, it is more accurate, therefore, to characterize the Modern Liberal as a Statist. (p.4)



The following nine chapters, plus an epilogue containing Levin's own manifesto -- the political changes he posits as desirable (and with which I agree) -- are organized thematically, with titles such as On Prudence and Progress, On Faith and the Founding, On the Welfare State, and On Self Preservation (i.e., national security), wherein he encapsulates nearly all the major political issues of our day, providing essential up-to-date information, while also weaving in the wisdom a timeless thinkers ranging from Alexander Hamilton to St Augustine. As the book progresses, the chapters become more and more focused on current political disputes. But the beauty of the structure is that the principles discussed in the earlier chapters are brought to bear on the subsequent topics.


[Update: Nice Deb reports that the book has been out for one day and is already #1 at Amazon! More links to article about the book there, too.]

I wanted to see what Mr. Levin meant by "statist."

I think that the following definition fits.


stat·ism (stā'tĭz'əm) Pronunciation Key
n. The practice or doctrine of giving a centralized government control over economic planning and policy.
stat'ist adj. & n.

We can already see the development of "soft tyranny" in the NOBama administration. Mark hits it exactly right when he writes, "which becomes increasingly more oppressive, partially leading to hard tyranny."

That is what all of the TEA parties going on across America are all protesting about! And, what is interesting is the fact that it is not only conservatives who are concerned about our current "soft tyrannical government," there are independents, libertarians, and even some liberals who are concerned about the neo-Marxist hard turn to the left that NOBama is taking this nation.

We are certainly

Taxed
Enough
Already

here in America. Leading us towards trillion dollar deficits is NOT THE ANSWER!

During the 60 Minutes interview, Mr. Kroft reveals that in a typical survey, only 18% of people agree with NOBama's economic policies! That means that a whopping 72% of the public THINKS NOBAMA'S ECONOMIC PLANS STINK AND WE ARE HEADING IN A DREADFULLY WRONG DIRECTION!

What is it going to take to reach this man? He's not a king. He's not a dictator (at least he's NOT SUPPOSED TO BE!).

Fellow Americans - we MUST rise up and get our voices heard and the message out that WE DON'T WANT THIS FORMER KENYAN VILLAGE IDIOT AND CLUELESS, RECKLESS CONGRESS TO COMMIT GENERATIONAL THEFT AND CREATE TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS OF DEFICITS!!

If only common sense ruled the day Washington D.C. I guess that is too much to ask with the many morons occupying seats in the Senate and the House.

Thankfully, there are still some SANE PEOPLE in Congress. Rep. Gohmert had a great idea that, unfortunately, never saw the light of day. Why? Because PeLIARsi and ReiDUNCE dismissed all of the Republicans (and their ideas) and were shut out of the financial problem debates.

If I recall correctly, Rep. Gohmert proposed a "tax holiday" for all Americans for only three months. If such a tax holiday was given for up to six months, it STILL would have cost 1/2 (estimate) less than the Stimulus bill!!! It would have IMMEDIATELY placed more money into the pockets of EVERY WORKING TAXPAYER and BUSINESS OWNER. In turn, the business owners would have been able to hire more people. Each taxpayer would have more money to spend and that spending would have most likely helped every industry (including the failing car sales giants) in dire straits right now, by having more of OUR OWN MONEY (after all, it is EACH AND EVERY WORKER'S MONEY - NOT THE GOVERNMENT'S IN THE FIRST PLACE!!!) to spend and get the economy going again. This idea would have had IMMEDIATE RESULTS!

Economically speaking, nothing happens until someone sells something. In turn, that means that someone else is buying. IMO, government SHOULD NOT BE IN THE BUSINESS OF SELLING!!! Especially when they are using OPM - Other People's Money in the most wasteful ways imaginable! The Democratic majority's mindset is "tax and spend." They know NOTHING about the correct way to run a business!!!

But don't take my word for it. After all, I'm just a dumb blogger. I'm not an economist. However, I listen to those economists who have shared their views that NOBama's economic policies are quite the disaster.

Even other countries are worried about this new NOBama administration making disastrous economic moves.

China Calls For New World Currency to Replace Dollar

I suggest you read the entire blog post and subsequent links, but here is a brief excerpt:


In February communist China warned Democrats not to discard the stable state of bilateral relations by following a "whatever-not-Bush" economic policy. Russia's Putin warned Democrats about socialism.

But, Democrats went ahead with their historic spending bills anyway.
These moves by democrats now have China concerned that skyrocketing inflation is on the way.

In response, China called for a new reserve currency to replace the dollar.


The Financial Times reported:


[A]nalysts said the proposal was an indication of Beijing’s fears that actions being taken to save the domestic US economy would have a negative impact on China.

“This is a clear sign that China, as the largest holder of US dollar financial assets, is concerned about the potential inflationary risk of the US Federal Reserve printing money,” said Qu Hongbin, chief China economist for HSBC.


The Democrats are so dishonest.

First, they can't ever admit that the Bush tax cuts helped boost our economy for 7 of the 8 years he was in office.

Second, many bloggers have caught on to their schemes. The economic disaster was a manufactured crisis (count how many Dems caused it!!!) to get their "boy" into office. Recall how they blamed it on Bush? Perhaps they didn't think it through all the way and being the "economic geniuses" they are (NOT!!) are now stunned to see how hard it is to stop this out of control train wreck going down the track of disaster.

Back to Levin's book.

I plan to get a copy today. Can't wait to read it!

We can see - just by the piled on economic turmoil that the NOBama admin. is creating (on top of the manufactured crisis in the first place!) is an example of "statist" mentality. It is a kind of "soft tyranny" that Mr. Levin mentions in his book - which will one day lead to hard tyranny - neo-Marxist Obama's plan in the first place. That is probably why he can get stoned and appear on 60 Minutes - laughing his way through the interview while Mr. Kroft sits there in unbelief asking him, "are you punch-drunk?"

Yep...drunk with his own Kool-Aid mixture and ObamaBorg mind - trying to ruin our economy and nation even before the close of the Lamestream media's stupid "100 days" landmark. It's becoming more and more obvious to millions of people - especially those who regret voting for the phony - his inexperience, haplessness, and clueless mindset on good economic policy will make the legacy of his first days more like, "How to ruin a nation in 100 days."

American Thinker: Is Obama Creating a BC Bubble?

Excerpt:

Nowadays, the success of our Treasury bond sales depends on the good will of China's Gao Xiqing, who controls over $700,000,000,000 of outstanding US treasury notes and who reportedly is a hard core Chinese Communist who regards America as China's enemy.


Why, then, is Obama pursuing this risky maneuver? We can imagine at least four possibilities, in order of increasing infamy:


* He is too naïve or ignorant to understand what he is risking.
* He knows but doesn't care, being interested only in what looks good for the moment.
* He wants to cause inflation, because inflation favors debtors and the biggest debtor in the United States is the United States. Moreover, inflation leads to devaluation of the dollar, which, as James Lewis recently pointed out, is one of the key objectives of puppet master George Soros.
* He wants to provoke a crisis of capitalism, as James Simpson has already suggested.


Whatever the reason, the effects could be devastating.

The thing that I can get away from is how they are defining people who might associate with or belong to these evil militia groups as basically anyone who shows and fidelity to the USA, it's founding or the Constitution and Declaration of Independence. Pretty soon they're going to be telling us that Madison, Hamilton, Washington, Jefferson and Franklin were all terrorists, or some such utter nonsense, since those of us who respect them are already being labeled that way...

rebecca said...

such sick freaks, these n0bamas. WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO THE UNITED STATES?

OBAMA is no better than Mugabe, Mandela, Moi, Mobutu Sese Seko, and the other creepy thugs who follow his AFROCENTRIC philosophy -- the philosophy of 'do anything, say anthing' liberal academic elites. Maybe obama gets its from his MUSLIM INDONESIA genes too -- look at SOEKARNO the communist SAVAGE who destroyed the CIVILISED dutch empire and introduced SAVAGE rule of muslim barbarians.

The DOWNFALL of the United STATES was the loss of BARRY GOLDWATER and the COWARDLY senate who voted into LBJ's anti-traditional agenda.

NOW vermont senate plays same trick with Fake Antichristian Marriage but voting in GAYS and with gay teen testimony and SICK pro-OBAMA policy PERVERTED VERMONT the scum and savage LIBERAL cesspool of the world. PIGS!!!

Rebecca...you really should seek professional help

Christinewjc said...

Matt,

That is their "MO." They purposely denigrate anything that is true, decent, and positive about our nation's conservative values and the purpose of our Judeo-Christian heritage and founding.

In fact, with what they are offering our nation (a huge load of neo-Marxist crap!) they must ridicule the other side. Why? Because we show them their dishonesty.

Alan Keyes was right on point in his latest blog post when he wrote:

"Ridicule is a standard tactic of deceivers trying to discredit anyone who draws attention to their dishonesty."

So true! I experience that on a regular basis here at my own blog.

Christinewjc said...

Rebecca!

Why don't you tell us how you REALLY feel! heh heh...j/k

It is SO FRUSTRATING...isn't it?

But the more we speak up and speak out about what they are doing wrong - the more it irritates them! Otherwise, why would "John" even post here at all if it wasn't having an affect on him?

The April 15th TEA parties which will be held in D.C. and across the nation will make it impossible for the Lamestream media to ignore!

We are

Taxed

and aren't gonna take it anymore!

John said...

I can tell you why I post here Christine, and it's not because you or anything you write is having an effect on me. I come here for several reasons. One is simply the comedy of it all. You really make me laugh outloud with your conspiricy theories and your total alarmist attitude about everything Obama. So odd that you weren't alarmed about anything that Bush (WPE) did!

Another reason is to see exactly what the lunatic fringe (thank you Rebecca) is up to...and I know you have quite the handle on that.

And yet another reason is to observe the tenents of your so-called christianity at work..you know, love thy neighbor, don't speak ill of others, don't spread false rumors, be charitable, be merciful, etc. I must say, if I were looking to convert to your christianity, and you...along with the lovely and articulate Rebecca...were an example of what it means to be a christian, with the name calling and the utter lies and innuendo, I would have to think twice about your religion. It reminds me of what Ghandi often said. "I like your Christ, but I don't like your christians. They are nothing like your Christ.

Sad but true!

Christinewjc said...

Know what John? You are right. You are absolutely correct. I am a sinner - just like everybody else. I'm not perfect and have never claimed to be. I make mistakes. I say the wrong things. I can be too critical. I can be too stuck on the name-calling.

Sometimes I succeed at all of those things you mentioned and sometimes I fail at them.

Please point out the "lies" you claim I have made?

When something is speculative, I usually say so. Sometimes it has been said in previous posts and comments so I don't bother to repeat that fact.

I know it might be considered a cliche' by you, but it is still true:

"Christians aren't perfect, just forgiven by a God who is."

Sometimes even Christians need to vent their frustrations. Rebecca has chosen to do so on this blog. My attitude? Let 'em rip! We all need it sometimes...even you..no?

Sometimes I use this blog to vent. Or, like during NOBama's side-stepping the questions at the press conference this evening, sometimes I just vent by yelling at the T.V.!

O'Reilly just backed up the same sentiments that I had about this conference on his show. Obama did not answer many of the direct questions. Instead, he launches into a 10 minute speech and tries to deflect what the reporter actually asked him. As O'Reilly observed (paraphrased), 'you may have missed the singing because American Idol was pre-empted - but you sure saw a lot of dancing by Obama at the press conference.' heh heh

Lastly, Christianity is not just another "religion" - it's a relationship with the Savior, Jesus Christ.

Smart people usually don't make their decisions to follow Christ based on the mistakes, sins and errors of other people. They follow Christ because they have figured out the correct answer to Jesus' question, "Who do you say that I am?"

Ghandi's comment may seem quite clever, but is it charitable? Is it merciful? Is it not speaking "ill of others?" Was he not "loving thy Christian neighbor?" Wasn't he guilty of spreading false rumors (not all Christians deserve disdain and dislike - do they)?

Perhaps Ghandi should have looked in the mirror and also said, "I am nothing like their Christ." Sad but true!

Oh my goodness, talk about hitting the nail on the head. At the rate NObama is going, he will be labeling those that have sworn to "Protect and defend the Constitution of the United States from all enemies, foreign and domestic" as terrorists. Oh wait, that's all our military members. Well, he's headed that way at the rate he's going. I am sick to death of all the Bush bashing that went on, and am happy to see that people are realizing he wasn't a bad President at all, he was just President during an extraordinarily trying time in our nations history. I truly hope the American people realize their mistake and make some changes in the next Congressional elections.

Christinewjc said...

Hi Seth,

Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts!

You are correct. Obama is all about "class warfare." He wants to build strife between the rich and poor, the young and old, the military supporters and the anti-war activists...the list is endless!

But there is hope on the horizon! People are waking up to his evil game playing. In fact, SCOTUS now is very aware of the details regarding his eligibility for POTUS problem. The FBI has been informed too! Please see my latest post!

Sincerely,
Christine
