My predictions for the new Obama "Presidency"
By Kit Lange | December 10, 2008
Now that America has shown us all affirmative action even works in politics, I've compiled a list of things you can probably expect to happen. These predictions are 80 percent gleaned from information all of us have access to, 15 percent gut instinct based on many years of research and historical study, and being glued to current affairs. The other 5 percent is just anger at my countrymen's stupidity – I admit it.
• Websites and mass emails offering "free grants," courtesy of the government and "Obama's wealth redistribution."
• Israel will understand this election was the end of assistance from the U.S. and will stop holding back their defense. Look for a first strike on Iran soon, as well as increased activity by the Israeli military in general. God help us all.
• Iranian retaliation against American targets – doubly for other terrorist organizations. We just elected a man with the full endorsement of every major terrorist group in the world as leader of the free world. It's the political equivalent of hiring a child molester to babysit your kids while you leave for the weekend.
• Far-left justices appointed to the Supreme Court, effectively tying up the entire government in liberal humanism, the ultimate goal of which is socialism and soon, sharia law.
• Military cases of troops being tried and convicted for killing the enemy in combat will continue to rise. The conviction/plea-bargain rate will stay at nearly 100 percent, as the government seeks to use military men and women as sacrificial lambs on the altar of global appeasement. Those brave and honorable men who currently reside in prison cells across the country will not taste free air again for many years – their sacrifices forgotten by the general public.
• Look for the slow but steady erosion of rights you have enjoyed for your entire lives: Restrictions on gun ownership, home schooling, encouraged dependence on the ever-growing federal government. More provisions will be put into place to protect the "disadvantaged" and the "poor," (read: lazy, uneducated, unwilling to better themselves). The unborn, mentally handicapped, elderly, and terminally ill are to be slowly pushed toward euthanasia. Before you tell me I'm crazy, remember Barack Obama was the ONLY senator in the Illinois state senate to vote against providing medical care for babies who survived an abortion. Also, look for taxes to go up.
• You think the economy is bad now? Just wait. You'll have the most expensive "free" health care ever. Bread lines aren't just for Russians anymore.
We have traded experience for color, freedom for slavery; the irony is that the average American sheeple thinks their vote somehow righted an ancient wrong, somehow ENDED the spectre of slavery and ushered in some beautiful era of liberty. In reality, we are about to be less free than you ever thought possible.
I watched the faces of those crowded into the mob in Chicago. They stared at Obama like he was a God, an idol, a panacea to their every want and need. We have truly failed as a nation if we are at the point where we feel we must look to one man to take care of us all, to be our father figure and our sugar daddy. We have lost not only the "can-do" attitude of past generations, but the "MUST-do" attitude of our forefathers. We have allowed ourselves to become reduced to the sniveling, whining idea that we are owed something. We have gone from being the honorable defenders of freedom, to being told we are the problem.
The eyes of Obama and McCain were also telling. McCain acted with class and grace in his concession speech, offering the most honorable response I've seen yet. I don't agree with all of McCain's positions, but it cannot be denied that the man has served his nation, at permanent and severe detriment to himself, for half a century. His eyes were clear and sincere, honest. His speech underlined the very reasons why he was the best choice.
Obama's eyes were cold, calculating. His manner was smug and carried the arrogance he has always had. His facial expression was one of barely disguised disdain for everything people like me believe in. He talked of patriotism as though it is a value he is familiar with – and yet, his horrifying attitude toward our country is as well-documented as his friendships with those who seek its demise. He is inspiring to those who cannot or will not think for themselves. However, too many who voted for him are guilty of the most dangerous kind of hypocrisy. We are told daily we must not see color, just mankind. And yet Barack Obama was handed the White House on a silver platter by a fawning media, a bevy of foreign donors (who, in violation of U.S. election laws, remain nameless and unaccounted for), and a populace who voted based on color instead of right and wrong – even in the face of the most damning evidence against a Presidential candidate in many years, perhaps ever.
It is said the people receive the government they deserve. Sadly, I fear that's correct. We have become complacent.
So, liberals, enjoy your victory. Make fun of those of us who fought to make sure your "Messiah" didn't get access to the most powerful position in the world. Just remember when it all comes crashing down: You own the White House, the Congress, and soon the Supreme Court. You have no one to blame but yourselves for the mess you just created.
As for me, I'm buying my handguns this week so I have an answer for those who will come try to take them.
