If I shake my head anymore, the hair will fall out of the follicles. No one in recent memory – including the masterfully slick William J. Clinton - has been able to suspend all the parameters of human disbelief as much as Senator Government has. The idea that so many people in this country are poised to vote for Barack Obama in three days - and already have in early balloting – despite the constant stream of forbidding propositions and promises that soar from his campaign-weary sliver tongue onto the worshipping throngs, is enough to make me want to return to the golden age of more palatable dregs – like Hillary Clinton speaking “black” in a Harlem church, Roseanne Barr singing the National Anthem, or fingernails on Rosie O’Donnel.

To even ask this question anymore is an exercise in impotence– if not redundancy - but what the hell is Senator Obama talking about? And what country does he think this is?

Recently, “The One” made the following statement:

We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded.

You can see the video here..

You truly cannot make this stuff up.

Let me, for a moment, take what he said at face value.

On one hand, I could see myself agreeing with him. The national security objectives he has set - which involve sitting down unconditionally with despotic leaders and supporters of terrorism, as well as announcing to our enemies a withdrawal date from Iraq that can be marked on Al Qaeda refrigerator calendars everywhere - cannot be achieved using just the military. That’s because national security – to the Obamacrat – involves a host of soul saving, nation-mending measures that complement the run-of-the-mill Obama appeasements we all know and nourish our peptic ulcers with … such as combating domestic economic injustice, ensuring that as many abortions as possible take place in America, providing health care to each and every person within our borders, and banning television news folks who ask tough questions of Democrats from the Obama inner circle (few as they are).

On the other hand … what?!?!?!?

To the Obamacrats, the United States military is an over-funded, grossly misused implement of a terribly flawed war-hungry imperialist nation. What America needs, according to the words of "The One" spoken along the Messianic trail, is an equally authoritative force of civilian stormtroopers that can jackboot their way across the nation enforcing equality and justice while promoting unity.

Talk about fundamental transformation.

How is such a thing to be implemented?

How is such a thing to be paid for?

This would involve either astronomical cutbacks to the military or astronomical increases in spending to achieve a force “just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded.

(Head shaking. Hair falling).

And to the main-stream-media, none of this has even a camel's eye-lash worth of relevance.

So many of the cocktail-party going, inner-circle media types who thrive in the New York-Washington news corridor want to be on the right side of history – the winning side of history. The same goes for some of the conservative punditocracy who have either defected to, or conceded to, the blue team. The "invites" to the hottest shindigs are often too much to resist.

These things matter. They really do.

Do you really think the compliance rate will be as high as 90%?

Let’s say I’m mentally prepared for the worst case scenario-of course I hope it would be much lower.
I’m not sure Obama can even ram this thing through Congress,and as far as more gun control,he might have problems with Harry Reid.It is just unhealthy to get too complacent.
What is much more likely is the mass legalization of illegal aliens in the US.
This guy is more like Jim Jones every day-as long as only his slavish admirers drink the poison Kool-Aid,we’ll be ok.
Some of those voting for him will have a major change of heart if he wins and they find out what they have let into the house.
Stock up on ammo in any event.
This country has gotten dumbed down by the media to a scary level.Maybe it needs a national enema.

Obama's civilian national security objective "is to radicalize American youth and use them to bring about 'social change' through threats, pressure, tension and confrontation — the tactics used by the father of community organizing, Saul 'The Red' Alinsky." Get in their faces, said BO.

That started back in the 1960s. It's called universities, institutes of dire learning.

Estimated cost to taxpayers, $500 billion ( a year?) much of the cost taken from DoD's budget, it appears to me.

Now that we know that a president Obama would have no respect for our "defective" constitution our military would be free to disregard civilian authority and finally! go after domestic enemies.

If modern America's Man on Horseback is out there, Get on the damn horse already!

Don't try this at home. Leave it to the professionals

When we don’t have to worry about being called racist, we’ll move.

...while promoting unity.

A way to "promote unity" is to silence or eliminate dissenters.

The most disturbing thing about this character is the consistent intolerance of dissent. Such intolerance, in the hands of an insecure and inexperienced leader, is an extremely dangerous catalyst for tyranny.

That is exactly what I had in mind, not paranoia but observation and discernment. We are not the “black helicopter” crowd but we do know that people get together and organize to do evil just as they band together to accomplish good, this is reality.

Our society has jumped into the “I’m no conspiracy nut” mode with both feet but we need to remember that we are not to check our brains at the door and discard all common-sense and reason. Men CONSPIRE to do evil and so we need to watch for such otherwise we become like flotsam and jetsam, unable (or unwilling) to learn, drifting helplessly with the tide, possibly like your neighbor?

These times of testing will demand clear thinking, level heads, leadership; encouragement to those in distress so that they not despair, we already have a great example of that kind of leadership: Sarah Palin and her husband Todd.

The link below is on another thread on FR but it might be of interest for this discussion. Seems to fit a pattern and demonstrates the neverending efforts to undermine the foundations of our nation.

QUESTION: Obama wants security force, but what will be the common denominator
that brings him the power to rule these people, Don't they all need a common enemy?
The bottom line is, who or what will be the common/shared enemy that brings this
into fruition?
