So Obumbler’s 2012 campaign slogan will be the same one that Marxists have used for the last 100 years to promote the enslavement of people under their heels. How charming. And utterly appropriate.
I don’t know about you, but this whole thing is creeping me out. While some folks may be inclined to chalk it up to “irrational exuberance,” my view is that Comrade Obama does indeed think the country deserves to be ruled by him. certainly his obedient media think we would be better off if we stupid proles would simply let him become dictator for life. Thomas Friedman tells so. In the New York Times! It has to be true.
One-party autocracy certainly has its drawbacks. But when it is led by a reasonably enlightened group of people, as China is today, it can also have great advantages. That one party can just impose the politically difficult but critically important policies needed to move a society forward in the 21st century. It is not an accident that China is committed to overtaking us in electric cars, solar power, energy efficiency, batteries, nuclear power and wind power. China’s leaders understand that in a world of exploding populations and rising emerging-market middle classes, demand for clean power and energy efficiency is going to soar. Beijing wants to make sure that it owns that industry and is ordering the policies to do that, including boosting gasoline prices, from the top down.
So re-elect “The One” and pave the way for us to become a Marxist dictatorship, just like China. Our betters on the left have decreed it must be so. We are obligated to follow their enlightened lead.
Or we can decide we have had enough.
