Forecast for America
The re-election of Barack Obama was not just about a single individual. More importantly, his Administration, along with its Czars, appointees, health care reform, regulations, military restructuring, etc., will live on for at least another four years, if not permanently.
Obama’s first four years focused on restructuring the U.S. Administration. He put his Marxist-oriented system and policies in place and found key people to move it forward. A majority of Americans are apparently supporting this revolution, but more because of mass manipulation than reasoned thinking.
I overheard some older people speaking about the election results. One cursed George Bush as the evil destroyer and praised Obama because he also blamed Bush. Another said that he is happy as long as he keeps getting his Social Security checks and Medicare payments. Another suggested that Obama’s economic policies might not be so hot and the other two scoffed in total ignorance. It was a useless and pointless discussion that led nowhere, and only showed that none of them understood a thing they were talking about.
My point is, this underscores the mass ignorance and misunderstanding among the populace. Such people are easily manipulated.
Here are a few forecasts on the next four years with Obama at the helm.
Radical Islam — Obama will do nothing to stem the spread of radical Islam in the Middle East or elsewhere. His friendly disposition toward groups like the Muslim Brotherhood will encourage even more boldness in regime turnover like the ones seen in Egypt and Libya, and the U.S State Department and CIA will be helping every step of the way.
Healthcare — Obamacare is now set in concrete. There will be no turning back. The quality of health care will deteriorate and many doctors will exit the system, shrinking available resources even further. Rationed care will be particularly hard on the elderly as they are increasingly viewed as useless to society.
Corruption — Scandals and corruption will increase dramatically. During the first four years, nothing has stuck to Obama. He and his Administration have successfully dodged every scandal, thumbed their nose at Congress and the Judicial system, and stonewalled every request for information. Such “successes” will only encourage more bad behavior.
Police State - The overall military will be reduced in size with an increasing focus on domestic enforcement. That is, the military will be increasingly used in the U.S. to “fight homegrown terror.” Department of Homeland Security screenings and check points will be expanded into all forms of travel and public safety: train, bus, personal transportation, sporting events, public buildings, etc. Local police forces will be subjugated to military or federal authority.
Gun Control — Buy them while you can because Obama will be full out to ban gun ownership, gun and ammunition sales. Reuters reports that within hours of the election results “U.S. backs new U.N. arms treaty talks.” Obama dropped this initiative in July for fear of Republican backlash; now it’s back and running at full speed.
Technocracy — Zbigniew Brzezinski wrote in Between Two Ages that “Marxism represents a further vital and creative stage in the maturing of man’s universal vision.” Note that it is not the end of man’s vision, but only a stage to go through. As a Marxist, Obama is using his unorthodoxy to move toward Technocracy in the U.S. and also globally. In this sense, he is a “useful idiot” in the promotion of Technocracy. American political and economic thinkers are far behind the curve in understanding this.
Smart Grid — Expect an all-out push to complete the national smart grid and to tie it together at the Department of Energy in Washington, D.C. As green energy policy fabricates energy shortages, the cry for conservation and a “national energy policy” will be deafening.
Personal Privacy — By 2016, nothing will be hidden from governmental view, and no citizen (except the elite) will be exempt from total “on-demand” scrutiny. The implementation of a national id card will be realized. Public surveillance and tracking will be pervasive. Monitoring of all communication (phone, computer, conversations) will be fully implemented.
Tax increases — Expect them on every level. Obama is already considering a “carbon tax” that will limit U.S. manufacturing and transportation.
U.S. Constitution — It’s toast and we all know it, so we might as well just say it. The first four Obama years have trashed whatever is left of a working Constitution. It is clear that the Executive Branch of the U.S. government has broken free of the checks and balances provided in the Constitution, and is now in an openly adversarial role with American citizens. Obama will do whatever he wants, with or without the approval of Congress.
Is there anything that can stop these well-defined political memes? No. Why not? Because the majority of voters (especially the younger generations) are not literate enough to even understand these issues, much less resist them.
The odds are high that one of Obama’s past, present or future scandals could get him impeached before 2016. However, be careful what you wish for: Obama’s departure would promote the master-of-jabberwocky Joe Biden to the presidency.
