Nudging We the People into an abyss
Isn't politics charming? When they want to be, Progressive Socialists can be so warm and tender it's just silly.
Take Obama Regulatory Czar, Cass Sunstein. Cass was a Liberal judge who still thinks government should control the press. He doesn't believe in personal freedom, you know like the right to bear arms.
But he's not all mean, like a Mao, Hitler or Stalin. He doesn't believe in mass murder, at least in the start. He wants to nudge us by enacting policies that will funnel us into enslavement. Cass may not be in favor of human rights, but he thinks animals should be able to sue and wants to outlaw hunting. -- Cass R. Sunstein, Martha C. Nussbaum. Animal Rights: (Current Debates and New Directions. (Oxford University Press, USA, 2004). P. 11)
What a sweetheart!
If life gives you a ruffled feather, use it to tickle someone pink
Sunstein isn't the exception in the Obama Administration; he sets the tone. Obamacare was written to confuse and hide details that were meant to "nudge" us into a single payer government takeover of 1/6th of our economy, with a few innocuous militias thrown in to enforcewhatever. Here are the other nudgers:
Dr. Donald Berwick, aka Death Panel Don, Obama recess appointment as Administrator of Medicare/Medicaid. After Palin rightfully ID'd end of life counseling in the original Obamacare bill, it raised such a stink that Dems dropped it from the bill. But, via death panel Don, it was reinstituted in Medicare on Christmas day. Seniors may not want the gift of a death warrant from Santa next year, but if you sign up for your annual "wellness" visit, an attempt will be made to sign off on it. How considerate!
Eric Holder-AG nudging us to believe it's OK to commit election crimes as long as you're black and the victim white. The New Black Panthers seem to be immune from the law. They were back at the same voting place they committed election crimes in 2012. What an understanding guy! And his reach out to Terrorists? Absolutely amazing!
Ron Bloom-auto consultant nudged the government takeover of the auto biz and its theft from stockholders into the pocket of the unions. Wow, just like Robin Hoodonly the Hood stole from the state to give to the oppressed.
John Holdren-Science Czar, easing us to population control. Believes in abortions, voluntary if mother cooperates, forced if she doesn't. Once proposed putting sterilant in drinking water. If that doesn't work, he proposed forced economic downturns, believing it would be easier to control populations if you starve people. Hmmm, could our economy over the last two years be some sort of experiment? Hey, it worked for Stalin and Mao! What a peach of a guy!
Lisa P. Jackson-EPA Secretary feels so strongly about the birds, fishes and man-made global warming, she's nudged us into cap and trade by ruleafter Congress dropped it.
FCC-Chairman, Julius Genachowski eased a vote to control and regulate the Internet, even though he could cite only future possibilities of problems. Boy, he's looking out for ussolving imaginary problems by taking control of our computers. How soon before political content is monitored and censored? Boy, I feel safer now, don't you? Next? Getting Rush off the air.
Janet Napolitano-Secretary of Homeland Security, the most touchy-feely secretary of them all. She's so warm and fuzzy people call her Big Sis. Now she's got the TSA nudging us to areas where they probe, fondle and pet us. It's a regular love-fest I tell ya. Plus, we've shown the world we can be fair by not going after 17 to 40 year old dark-skinned men, most of them from Muslim/Arabic countries who are the ONLY people guilty of plane terror for the last 30 years.
Never give up, never let up and you'll never let yourself down
The new Congress convenes in days. The challenges are huge and the priorities of battle imperative. We sent Republicans to repeal Obamacare first. It's guaranteed to pass the House and is a winner with the electorate.
Concurrently, there needs to be the appropriate investigations into what Congressman Darrell Issa has called the most corrupt administration in history.
First thing Republicans have placed in their House Agenda: The reading of the Constitution of the United States of America. How refreshing.
Please remind the President and the Dems in Congress of their pledge to "…support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic…"
Saw through the chains of enslavement Obama and the Dems have burdened us with STAT!
