Tim Dunkin, a freelance author from North Carolina, has an interesting take on Obama’s presidency. He argues Obama’s class warfare rhetoric is a sign of tyranny to come.
The institution of tyranny in pre-Classical Greece is, in many ways, reflected in Obama’s administration today, among the changes which he is making to our nation.
The Left’s modus operandi since FDR’s time – lure Americans into the addiction of government handouts, continually make the income tax code more and more “progressive” so that greater and greater numbers of us in effect do not pay any income taxes while shifting the burden more and more to the capital-providing, jobs-producing rich. By draining and driving out these victims of redistribution, the government then generates more “need” for hand-outs and assistance as jobs disappear and the economy systematically slows down. Obama has been working for the last four years to accelerate these trends because he is making a concerted effort to grasp total power.
This 47% who can be counted on as a reliable voting coalition want Obama because they want the wealth redistribution, they want to take from the successful and give to themselves, they want a tyrant in office who will give them goodies, even if the established Constitution has to fall by the wayside in the process. Legitimate or not, Obama is their choice because he is their opportunity to “get back at,” to punish those who have been more successful in life under the sun.
His policies drive out more and more private wealth, industry, and investment, so that the vacuum left provides the “need” that can be met by more government spending, nationalization, and involvement.
