Does Obama Doom America?
American Spectator ^ | 11.14.12 | Quin Hillyer

Posted on 11/14/2012 12:11:28 PM PST by IbJensen

The question so many people are asking.

The refrain started many weeks, even months, before the election, but its frequency and intensity has increased nearly exponentially since Nov. 6.

"I don't know if we can survive another four years of this," people say. Or, "do you think we can survive four more years of this?" Even Bill Kristol, not prone to defeatism, speculated on what might happen "even if America can survive the next four years of Obama."

-snip-

It is not an idle worry. Barack Obama and his minions play for keeps. And they are playing for a vastly different America than the one with which we have been accustomed for 224 years of this constitutional republic. Fight a war in Libya without even asking for a congressional resolution? No problem. Appoint executive officers without Senate approval, when the Senate is still in session? Sure. Issue executive orders directly contrary to law, on multiple occasions? Of course. Refuse to enforce duly constituted laws? Check. Repeatedly question the very legitimacy of the Supreme Court? Check. Refuse to honor congressional subpoenas and legitimate Freedom of Information requests? Ignore court orders (about offshore drilling) so flagrantly that you are found officially in contempt of court? Insult or even abandon allies? Whisper to foreign leaders of traditionally adversarial lands that you will have "more flexibility" after re-election? Deliberately cover up deadly mistakes on the Mexican border and in North Africa? Check, check, check, check, and check.

This man runs a vote-fraud-enabling, military-vote-suppressing, domestic-energy-destroying, debt-exploding, credit-limit-undermining, defense-gutting, abusive-regulation-promulgating, power-centralizing, religious-liberty-attacking, crony-corporatism-expanding, Constitution-trampling administration.

His mentor was a Communist; his top aide's in-laws and grandfather were major Communist activists; his chief political strategist worked for Communist-linked journalists; he started his political career with a fund-raiser at the house of domestic terrorists; he repeatedly and enthusiastically said the man who most deeply influenced his faith was a preacher in whose pews he sat for 20 years while the preacher spread racial hatred and anti-American venom (after which, according to the preacher himself, a close Obama associate offered to "buy" the preacher's silence); he got a sweetheart deal on his mansion via a financial alliance with a crook named Rezko; and he himself wrote that he made a conscious decision while still a very young adult to embrace racial grievances and hang out with hard-left counter-culturists."

This evil communist Obama will try to become dictator for life. Stalinists like this Obama piece of crap always do this as Chavez did in Venezuela.

Question: "Does Obama Doom America?"

Answer: No.

Comment: This poor creature will not be the cause of the coming American economic and political collapse anymore than the cause of measles is the rash. The election of this Third World "leader" is a mere symptom of the abdication by the people who made and sustained this country from the beginning to date. Those who made and sustained America have become bankrupt they are no longer able to exclude those who do not belong, they are losing their capacity to govern.

It is his goal in life!

Which is why it is good, when someone “Hopes he fails”.

His policies and actions make it clear that his anti-colonialism fuels his every step.

Shut down American energy exploration and production, while pretending that it can be replaced with “renewable energy”.

Destroy the economy, with out of control spending, graft to public and private unions, confiscatory tax policies, and smothering regulation.

Destroy the best health care system in the world.

Dismantle the greatest military in the world and the infrastructure that supplies it.

Destroy Religious Freedom and shut down the charities that compete with your gov’t vote buying schemes.

Undermine the American workforce by importing cheap, illegal labor.

The trespasses I've omitted here, are not due to lack of awareness, rather to disgust that clouds my ability to communicate in a civil manner.

It isn’t Obama that dooms America. It is an American that would elect him that dooms America.

Obamao doesn’t need to try to become a dictator for life. All he needs to do is to implement programs and policies, such as Obamacare, that will be impossible to ever overturn. That’s the dictatorship for the life of you and your grandchildren, just like SoShecurity, War on Poverty, Depts. of Energy, Education and so on, and so on.

No. Obama will destroy America with the help of our RINO TRAITOR politicians.

McCain, Graham,Rubio,Hatch, and ESPECIALLY Boehner.

Boehner on Nov 8 2012, when asked about “immigration”: This issue has been around far too long and while I believe it’s important for us to secure our borders and to enforce our laws, I think a comprehensive approach is long overdue, and I’m confident that the President, myself, others, can find the common ground to take care of this issue once and for all.

Scary that it will actually happen in America. It’s scary that we even think it COULD happen.

But remember, obama is not the brains behind this power. There is a group somewhere pulling the strings. And we’d probably be surprised to learn their names. I’d look for some republicans to be in the group.

“Question: “Does Obama Doom America?”

Probably as it exists now, yes.

He dooms all of us only if the 49% that wanted no more of him decide to surrender and welcome the boot on our necks.

Just as the medieval executioner was anonymous in his mask, our executioner is anonymous behind a fog of obfuscation and administrative & judicial misfeasance.

Does Obama doom America? He is systematically dismembering the rule of law... and we don't even know who he is.

It's not just Obama, it's the fact that there is no oversight and the corrupt MSM collude to protect anything Obama does. Therefore, he can do anything without any repercussion whatsoever. We have seen this with Clinton and has continued with Obama. In the time between Clinton and Obama the corrupt MSM went after Bush with a vengeance.

Yes.

The geographical entity will survive, and there will continue to be a place on the world map known as The United States of America - however, it will be utterly unrecognizable as anything remotely resembling the nation as it has existed for the past two hundred plus years.

The economy will be in ruins; the military will be terribly weakened; class warfare will be rife; racial spoils and preferences will be endemic; race relations will fall to an extremely low ebb; LGBT individuals will be elevated to countless positions of prominence; the curricula of the nation’s schools will include sex education in terms both graphic and obscene, while, at the same time, the basic skills of students will plummet; the White race will have become the new ni**ers; and Russia and China, both, will be chivvying us out of any and all positions of global influence.

That will be America in 2o16.

Which is why I'm thinking we should simply let Obama have his way. I'm starting to believe that the only way we can expose socialism for the evil it is, and get the dumbed-down, media-brainwashed electorate to unite against it, is to offer it little to no resistance for a while.

I think we are going to sink anyway. Let's do it quickly and make sure everybody knows who was driving the boat.

Then we rebuild.

Perhaps not Dictator for Life, but those behind him will do all they can to replace him with another cloned reader-of-Teleprompter. We may get some relief from the sickening tone but not the substance....

Yes, he dooms America, but only at the behest of those with diseased brains who voted for him. They voted for anti-Americanism, they voted for the death of capitalism, they voted for the death of morality, and as such, they voted for the death of America.

Iran’s “death-to-America”-screaming ayatollahs couldn’t be happier.

Hillary will be the next one in the White House if (not necessarily when) Obama leaves after 2016.

That is, if she so desires it. It's all up to her.

Problem is, when a crisis occurs, people gravitate further to more government, not less, ultimately culminating in economic dictatorship.

Not sure how we unravel that.

We have a real mess, and I’m not sure how we survive this. It’s horrifying already, and this idiot hasn’t even started his 2nd term yet.

President Revenge is on his way.

I agree. But I'd speculate that the economic dictatorship might be inevitable now anyway. Wouldn't you say that once we cross the threshold of 50% "on the take" there is really not much chance of turning back?

The government's inability to support the people's increasing demands would lead to (or hasten) a collapse in currency. This would certainly be horrifyingly bad for all of us.

But might it possibly be a pain we have to pass through to ultimately defeat socialism?

The scary thing to me is: if the dollar becomes worthless, the people run out of money, and the government runs out of money. The only difference that remains is that the government has lots of guns.

The brightest hope I see is that hopefully when it all comes down everybody knows that it was liberalism and socialism that did it. At least if we are united in that belief we'll have a chance at fighting back.

By the way...I'm completely ok with being wrong. I have four young kids and would rather not have them go through what I fear we're about to go through.

This communists dictator, King Obama, has already destroyed much of America and it will only take a few months in 2013 to totally destroy us.

I'm having similar thoughts. I frankly think the tipping point has been passed. I do not think there are enough votes left to bring us back from the precipice. The only way out now is through the crash and we have to show that Obama and the left owns it. Give them everything they want.
