As I proclaimed previously in “Cash for Clunkers”, the creation of Government Motors has firmly placed the Government in bed with the United Auto Workers (UAW).
The UAW still has a labor contract with Chrysler, who was bought out by FIAT. The Italian Government subsidizes FIAT, to offset the taxes paid from the sales of FIAT’s products in the U.S.
Just one big, happy, global, auto industry family, and you and I, the Taxpayers, are on the hook to pay for the wedding. Gee, not only did we not get a piece of cake, we were never invited to the wedding. No, we were never even consulted about the new arrangements of intimacy.
Then too, we cannot forget to add our new “Dutch Uncle”, the Chinese, to the equation. The Chinese will not be reduced to eating leftovers after becoming the single largest holder of American debt. Now that the Chinese have bought the Hummer line from GM, you can bet they will play heavily in the final formula.
I believe you are beginning to get the picture. President Obama is taking drastic steps to globalize our market. The creation of a partnership between the Labor Union and the Government is a major step toward Socialism. The UAW is acting as the modern day proletariat, as described by Karl Marx in his Communist Manifesto.
The UAW, as the modern day proletariat, will now have direct access to influencing policy and increasing their funding, by tapping into tax money. On the other hand, the Government will have a way to launder money through the auto industry, and the UAW, into political war chests, to finance the campaigns of their favorite liberal stool pigeons.
Upon further review, there is the little matter of “conflict of interest” on the part of the UAW. The UAW is still contracted to provide labor to Chrysler, now owned by a foreign carmaker, while at the same time being part owner of a domestic carmaker. I cannot help but wonder how much influence the Italian Government will have in our Government through a proxy relationship, using FIAT and the UAW as a conduit.
Now doesn’t that make for a nice, cozy little package? But, hey! If we play our cards right, this comfy little arrangement could put us in line for a membership in the European Union.
As for our new “Dutch Uncle” from China, of course, because they own so much of our debt, we will be told that we must enter into a free trade agreement with them. Then they will have a market for those fuel efficient Hummer’s. You know, the SUV’s the Government keeps claiming nobody wants to purchase.
This is starting to look a lot like a solidification of “Global Citizenry”, or more commonly known as “One World Government”. Do you think that is a stretch? Then argue the points I have made.
While you are at it, try to explain what constitutional role we play in a “Global Justice” effort, using our military as an “International Police Agency” instead of the highly trained fighting force of our nation. Try to rationalize why we are sending FBI agents to Afghanistan to read Miranda Rights to captured “enemy combatants”, before CIA agents can question them, thus extending the Constitutional Rights of American citizens to the people of other nations.
Did I mention that these individuals are “enemy combatants”, caught on the battlefield? The policy, quietly adopted by President Obama, seeks to protect those who actively target U.S. military personnel, and citizens, in attempts to harm and kill us.
What is next? I wonder how long before we attempt to concede more sovereignty to the United Nations. That could begin to pave the way to extend voting privileges to Castro, Kim Jong-il, or Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Or, maybe we can release the detainees at Guantanamo Bay and have them create a Jihadist Party and a Hamas Party to vie for political power against the Democrats, Republicans, and Independents.
As I claimed in “Just an Average American”, I will attempt to provoke thought. Think about my comments here. As troubling as it sounds, it makes sense.
Think about the actions and proclamations of President Obama in his short tenure in the Oval Office. He has travelled the globe, apologizing for America’s exceptionalism, admonishing our standards of living, and condemning our past foreign policies. According to that which Barack Obama preaches, America is a portrayed as a cancer to the rest of the world, and the President alone has the cure. His policies of reaching out to empower and appease our adversaries and the endless degradation of America are the answers he proposes.
Let me give you a news flash. France and Spain tried this method of achieving peace. They were bombed for their trouble, demonstrating that their practice of appeasement was an exercise of futility. Maybe, then State Senator Obama, was too busy studying and perfecting the implementation of Saul Alinsky’s radical teachings, to pay attention to the unfolding real life events.
Then again, Barack Obama is not the sharpest knife in the drawer when it comes to learning lessons from History. After all, the President espoused the belief that the Constitution of the United States is a list of “negative rights”. He went on to express, and I paraphrase, the Founders only mandated the restrictions of Government, they failed to express what Government is supposed to do for the people.
In my opinion, this is the most troubling public statement Barack Obama has ever made. As a graduate of Harvard, and a Constitutional Professor, he should understand, better than most, that the Founders intentionally set out to limit the authorities and power of the Government. They believed that authority and power should be reserved to the people and the States, respectively.
In his mind, instead of being elected into an office of servitude, Barack Obama has succeeded in his bid for power through the mantra of “Hope and Change”. Now he fully intends to push our nation in a direction it was never intended. He is adopting policies of socialism, at the cost of individual liberty and responsibility. He works tirelessly toward the induction of our exceptional nation into the mediocrity of globalization. In doing so, he attempts to reduce the greatness of liberty and freedom, to the oppression of a socialized, tyrannical dictatorship.
If you still think that is a stretch, think about the power President Obama has already seized for the Government. We now know that the banks were forced into the financial bailout, and that they were repudiated when they attempted to return the bailout money. We also know that a large amount of the bailout money for the financial industry went to foreign owned banks.
We have watched President Obama lead the way for a hostile Government takeover of the auto industry; farming pieces of it out to foreign ownership. He espouses support of failed energy policies, restricting domestic production of energy sources and forcing our dependence on foreign entities.
He marches lockstep in supporting the vilification of the corporate world, consistently attempting to persuade people to vacate “Corporate America”. He preaches that greedy CEO’s make too much money, and therefore require “Government imposed salary caps”. What’s next, more Government ownership?
Maybe the President does not understand that part of our country’s greatness depends on our industrialization, which by the way is profit driven. Conversely, could he be setting the stage to sell corporate ownership to foreign interests, as a means to promote further globalization?
In short, the examples are numerous and the evidence is clear; you only need to look past the sycophant media spin to see that all indicators point to our being led into a socialistic state.
I for one, appreciate my liberty and freedom, and my right of self-governance. I revel in the opportunity to make the best of myself, without limitations placed on me, through the process of rulership. I reject any individual that would pervert the standards and values of my nation, and any efforts to devalue that, for which so many have fought and died. I know what America is, and what it represents, and oppose any who attempt to redefine it.
There you have it. I leave no questions as to what I believe, or where I stand. What do you think? Are you American enough to stand with me, “just an average American”, in support of individual freedom and liberty, and oppose the socialization of our nation? Are you willing to stop the induction of our country into a doctrine of globalization, under which we would become just another member state of a “One World Government”?
Step back from your party affiliations and the rhetoric. Try to personalize the events of our nation, as if the events were limited to your life, your household, within your community, and the neighboring communities. Look at what is happening and what has already transpired. Understand the implications, and the consequences of current events.
Are we, as a nation, protecting individual liberty and freedom? Are we promoting self-governance, and personal responsibility? Are we preserving the vision of our Founders? Or, as a people, are we allowing the government to lead us into a state of dependency? Are those we elected, attempting a form of tyranny? Worse yet, are they conceding our sovereignty?
You decide. Do you want to be part of an independent nation based on liberty and freedom? Or, would you rather become a “citizen of the world” and therefore reduce our nation’s status to that of a simple, socialistic member state of the world?
Think about it.
