Political Economics: Boiling Lobsters

Barack Obama -- Socialism is a Mental Disorder

If you put a live lobster in a pot of boiling water, that lobster will frantically try to climb out of the scalding hot water. If, on the other hand, you put the lobster into cold water and gradually turn up the heat until it is boiling, the lobster adapts to the change in temperature and will be boiled alive without trying to escape.

While watching President Obama’s speech to Congress (2/24/09) I felt like he was plunging America into a lobster pot of boiling water. By the time he was winding up his speech, I was totally alarmed and trying to extricate myself and the America I love from the scalding water. What he is proposing is not the “creeping socialism” of the past several years, but full-fledged socialism right now.

Obama’s three main goals for his presidency will turn America into a socialistic country: nationalized health care that will burden our health system even more and costing an estimated $3 trillion in the next ten years; federal control of education, that “covers children from the day they are born and guarantees everyone can afford higher education” (Obama’s words); and government domination over the developing green industry, while capping carbon energy and taxing it out of existence. If done, the cost of our utilities will not only go up, but also will give government control over ALL American energy systems.

In addition, Obama wants to build the growth of unions, (he has said he owes unions big-time because of all the help they gave him getting elected.) He wants to control guns; wants to shut down conservative talk radio; spend $1,765,000,000 for world-wide abortion and family planning, again with government oversight; nationalize banking with trillions dollars more in bailouts. He wants to have a housing plan that disrupts the market, foreclosure, and refinance process with the government deciding your payment and even the value of your home. The government is already setting standards on US automakers, and is making major inroads on religious freedom. The Democratic Congress is aiding and abetting this government expansion.

Obama is definitely using the economic crisis to push socialism on unsuspecting Americans. He is trading on our fears and building them even higher with his doom and gloom talk, saying the situation is getting worse by the minute. His plot is the most massive expansion of American government ever. He is telling us if we don’t go along with him, we might not be able to reverse this recession. Quite a leader, I’d say. Scare us to death so we accept his socialistic schemes.

Obama’s Chief of Staff has said, “You never want to let a serious crisis to go to waste.” Well, Obama isn’t. HE IS BOILING AMERICA ALIVE IN THE BLISTERING WATERS OF SOCIALISM, DOING IT ALL AT ONCE, AND GETTING GOVERNMENT CONTROL OVER ALMOST EVERY ASPECT OF OUR LIVES.

AMERICA BEWARE! We need to recognize what is happening and try and stop it. It will be harder to reverse socialism later, if it is possible at all. AMERICANS MUST PROTEST BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE.
