An idea I had for an Orwellian, 1984-Esque, Anti-Obama ad.
A dilapidated, dingy room is filled with sitting media correspondents wearing gray uniforms; only an Obama symbol, atop of their notepads resting upon their locked knees, gleams with color. The hypnotized journalists are transfixed upon a giant, flickering, black and white screen; the words Forward and Obey routinely interchange with an Obama symbol marking each O. Obamas face, stoic and ominous, fades to the foreground.
Obama: America is better off than it was four years ago.
An Obama symbol, slowly transposing over the stars of the American flag, begins to block out images of the poor and homeless, business closings, as well as scenes of urban blight and violence.
Obama: You (intermittent images of our forefathers, the Industrial Revolution, and our flag raised at Iwo Jima, appear) did not build this!
The pictures quickly burn away until Obamas face resurfaces.
Obama: I will not fail!
The menacing image of Obama begins to distort and flicker as bright, colorful graphs of unemployment, national debt, food stamp usage, gas prices, and home foreclosures emerge in secession.
Obama: (incensed) Forward!
The graphs repeat at frightening pace casting shows on the faces of the now disturbed media until the screen goes blank and the room pitch black.
Orwellian Voice: (echoing) During a time of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.
A blinking prompt materializes at the bottom of the screen. The stunned reporters turn to one another, before looking back to the front. The words Attempting To Reload Constitution appear before the blinking prompt.
A teenage boy clicks off the TV with the remote. After hesitating in brief reflection, he opens a history book to a chapter entitled, The Constitution: The Greatest Document Ever Conceived.
Reading: We the people, in order to form a more perfect union .
A bookmark with an Obama symbol tumbles to the floor.
This would be a wonderful message but will never be done.
I have no illusions about that. I just liked the idea.

George Orwell on Socialism
I’m very familiar with his work and political views; which it’s makes it all the more apropos and ironic.
No one in the GOP has the stones to produce that ad... but someone like Beck or the Koch bros might.
I like it!
I like it!
Socialism is an awesome form of government and works quite well...
Right up to the point where you introduce Humans into the equation.
At that point the "suckage" gets so massive that it creates a "black hole" of government inefficiency and corruption. Then becomes all that is evil as far as government goes.
Probably too “cerebral” for this day and age, sadly.
I like the video for it;
