The Peaceful Transfer of Mobocracy
The American Spectator Magazine ^ | 1.23.13 @ 6:11

Posted on 01/23/2013 6:01:21 PM PST by drewh

The disturbing hollowness of Obama’s inauguration derives from this more subtle form of revolution. All the usual trappings of tradition were on display but at the service of a revolutionary ideology antithetical to them. Obama swore to uphold the Constitution, by which he meant his lawless reading of it. He invoked God-given rights, by which he meant man-made ones.

“There is no mob” here, said Republican Senator Lamar Alexander in his inaugural remarks, praising the day’s “orderly” transfer of power. But Obama’s concept of a living constitution is a species of mobocracy, in that it revolves around a demagogue seducing a mass of people into overthrowing their country’s original form of government. It is revolution not by force but by fraud: changing the form of government not through a constitutional convention but through the successful manipulation of popular opinion.

As a state senator in Illinois, Obama gave a radio interview in which he described the Constitution as defective. He lamented that courts did not “break free” from an originalist reading of it as a “charter of negative liberties.” He implied that if he had written the Constitution he would have made it a charter of positive liberties: “It says what the states can’t do to you, it says what the federal government can’t do to you, but it doesn’t say what the federal government or the state government must do on your behalf.”

The fulfillment of that vision — combined with the invention of new rights to gay marriage, free contraceptives, and so on — is what he meant by “fundamentally transforming” the country. His inaugural address was a pledge not to protect the Constitution but to undo it as he seeks to enact what he considers positive liberties.

“Our journey” won’t be complete until Obama dances with the male cadet.

He probably wanted to.

Neumayr delivers a screed against ‘mobocracy’ in Washington, and all he can talk about is sex?

There are many ways that arrogant, Communist Tyrant Hussein Obama will try to re-state Karl Marx’s Dictum: “From each according to his ability, to each according to his need.”

FDR put the Marx Dictum into law by creating the Social Security Administration, and partially borrowing the idea also from Mr. Ponzi.

LBJ enacted Medicare and Medicaid.

Nixon penalized us with “Free” food give-away Food Stamps.

Carter claimed that making a profit above what HE thought should be made was a “Windfall,” and levied a Marxist “equality” tax on those Oil Companies that had the most ability.

GWB decided that all must learn equally, and saddled us with “No Child Left Behind.”

And now the death knell for America: Commune-Style Nationalization of 1/6 th of America’s economy in order to pay for Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Aid to Dependent Children, Food Stamps, Bank and other Industry Regulators, No Child Left Behind, GSA Parties in Las Vegas, continuous Obamadrone attacks in any country in the World, unlimited use of Corporate Jet Air Force One, a 20 million dollar Obama Retirement home in Hawaii, platoons of White House Computer spies to monitor the restless American citizens and Obama”care.”

Tyrant Hussein Obama injects the zombie mentality into Capitalist America to reduce one’s work ethic from striving to do better to just sitting and waiting for Big Brother Commie to hand out an equal portion to them.

This Plantation-style Welfare handout system has resulted in a Federal Government caused National Debt of over 16 TRILLION Dollars charged to our descendants.

Inequality of income is essential to motivate people to strive to better their work ethic, income and quality of life.

Without inequality of income, why would anyone bother to ask for a raise, much less work to earn it?

Equality of income is essential to a lazy work ethic, lower income and a lower quality of life. Cuba is a clear example of that.

Inequality of income leads to progress, and a move forward in a Nation’s standard of living for all.

Equality of income leads to retrogression and a move backwards into a Nation of slavery to a king, dictator or tyrant.

Throughout History the default status of a civilization in decline has been slavery.

From the Old World European mentality, (the desire to “be taken care of from cradle to grave”), has come Feudalism, African Slavery, Socialism and finally Communism.

America has been tested by all of them, and all of them are rooted in the European Old World desire to be equal economic slaves, where all are required to be equally lazy.

The REVENGE of Communist Tyrant Hussein Obama has thus far been warmly welcomed by doormat RINOS in the US Congress.

To live in America in 2013 is to revisit Rome in 410. The barbarians are not at the gate, they are over the wall.

Only the shell, the mere form of our republic remains. Every significant institution and governing body has been thoroughly corrupted, soiled by the Left and transformed into statist tools of oppression.

Republican freedom is dead. Most Americans don't have a clue as to what has been lost; they never knew what they had.

And the Republican Party promises to "save" Social Security for future generations.
