The Quiet Revolution

The American Revolution, which resulted in this country being the great country that it is, was open, noisy and evident to anyone who observed it. The country which was created from the plans of our Founding Fathers has grown, in roughly 2 1/2 centuries into arguably the greatest country that this world has ever seen.

Now, within the halls of Congress and the courtrooms of American justice, and within the confines of the Oval Office itself, plans are being made and actions are being taken that have or will dramatically affect Americs's greatness in a very negative way.

Although the mainstream media, aka The Barack Obama Fan Club, do not choose to keep you apprised of many of these actions, nonetheless, President Barack Obama and his far left Democrats are quickly leading the United States down a road which will inevitably result in a major change that will leave the our country overtaxed and possibly bankrupt.

Now, in fairness to our President, while campaigning last summer, Barack Obama did say, "America is the greatest country in the history of the world. Come and help me change it!" Now, I presume that those American voters who cast their vote for President Obama were assuming that he meant changing America for the BETTER!

I GUESS NOT! Here are just a few examples of how America is being changed by the Barack administration.

The TARP bailout was instituted to bailout our financial system, i.e. stabilizing our banks. The legislation, as passed, specifically limited the use of this money to banking bailouts. Further, as banks paid back the TARP money, the legislation specifies that all money paid back would go directly to the general treasury funds of the United States. With that being said, why were billions of dollars used in the auto bailouts of Chrysler and General Motors. I guess someone ABOVE THE LAW just decided to rewrite that part of the legislation. Oh, yeah, and by the way, TurboTax Tim Geitner, our esteemed Treasury Secretary, announced recently that repaid TARP funds would be reused for other bailout plans. WHAT HAPPENED TO PUTTING THAT MONEY BACK INTO OUR TREASURY?!?!?

OK, let's move on from that for now. Did you hear that the Obama administration decided to rewrite bankruptcy laws and they were able to do that without having to go and bother our Congress with the pesky task of legislating. WHAT A TIMESAVER!! Yes, folks, even though U.S. Bankruptcy code is very clear on who gets in line first when a business goes bankrupt, the Obama administration thought it would be much better if the United Auto Workers (UAW), who were NOT SECURED CREDITORS, would receive the lion's share of these bankrupt auto firms while the actual investors were browbeaten into settling for a much smaller share of the pie. As a small child playing board games and card games with my family and friends, I was taught early on that trying to rewrite the rules in the middle of a game is called CHEATING, which of course is DISHONEST!! But, I guess when you are the President, rewriting the rules and ignoring the existing law and contracts would be called uh, hmm, well....Gee, I don't know, but it sure sounds DISHONEST to this citizen.

And let us not forget that all new legislation under the Obama presidency was going to be transparent and spending would be on a "pay-as-you -go" basis, spending on new projects only after we saved money from cancelling useless OLD projects. Does anyone else remember those promises? WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED?!?!?!

A power grab of unprecedented proportions is taking place right under our collective noses. President Obama now has an entire Russian Royal Family of Czars who are in charge of a great many aspects of American life and business. These czars answer to no one except President (or is that King?) Obama. These czars are unelected and are not even subject to approval of Congress. They are simply individuals in whom President Obama has placed great amounts of power over your life and mine, without any accountability to the citizens of the United States!! HEY, I HAVE A GREAT IDEA FOR SAVING TAXPAYER DOLLARS!! SINCE WE NOW HAVE A CZAR TO COVER ALMOST EVERYTHING, WHAT THE HELL DO WE NEED A PRESIDENTIAL CABINET FOR?!?!? LET'S GET RID OF THOSE USELESS DEADBEATS AND SAVE ALL THAT SALARY MONEY THAT IS CURRENTLY BEING PAID OUT!!

The Obama government is taking control of the banking system, taking charge of major industries and ignoring the laws of this land and the U.S. Constitution itself!! If this continues unchallenged and unabated, we might as well start calling each other "comrade" and, instead of elections, we will just go ahead and hold coronations on those people fortunate enough to be annointed by our newest deity, Obama Almighty!!

Did you know that we have a Great Lakes Czar? Nobody seems to know who he is or what he does, but we feel much better knowing that somebody is in charge of whatever Czars are responsible for.
