I believe Obama-Soros will ultimately fail because there are too many unknowns for them. This has never been done.
Like the Bush Administration encountered in Iraq, multiplied a thousandfold.
You are right, of course, that no central government can be all powerful, successful and benevolent. It’s not in man’s nature to wield power with benevolence. It’s outside of man’s capability to govern effectively from a chair thousands, hundredes or even dozens of miles away.
Those two reasons are why Socialism always fails. It requires a one-size-fits-all approach to government that can only result in making everyone equal in their misery.
However that will not stop them from trying. Because one other thing about man is his limitless belief in himself and his ego. Most people won’t believe a truth until it directly affects them. Obama, Soros and the libs won’t believe that massive government is doomed until it fails.
The problem is, when it fails, it means anarchy or tyranny.
The framers understood this. That’s why they separated the powers. If they thought a single man or group could effectively govern benevolently, they’d have created a kingship or oligarchy. They understood that would not work and built those restrictions into the Constitution.
Our current era politicans don’t seem to care about the Constitution at best and consider it a hinderance at worst because they don’t understand what the framers did. They think they are the solution to the problem without realizing what Reagan knew - Government often is the problem.
I sure hope you are right, reasonisfaith, unfortunatly, they could not have been given a greater, more opportune time to strike in the War on Capitalism
