    Obama to Repeat FDR's Scam

    This visionary column by Dick Morris hits the nail on the head:

    TheHill.com

    As Obama uses the recession to justify wildly expanding the nanny state-to European proportions-under the guise of "recovery," while the policies he enacts actually drag it out and worsen it, he will fundamentally weaken the US and cripple its economy, permanently, with irreversible welfare programs, as FDR did with things like Social Security.

    He will also use this insane government expansion to stack the deck for generations against those who prefer individuality, personal responsibility, and self-reliance to nanny state welfare programs and no right to choose.

    And like FDR, for his assault on America, Obama will be revered-at least by all who control the flow of information in this country. And the free market enabling this country to still inch its way towards recovery despite liberal policies will be misrepresented for all time as liberals fixing Republican policy failures.

    So the question is, will America be the least bit distinguishable from the stagnant, mediocre economies of Europe, with their double-digit unemployment rates and government-run everything by the time this charismatic serpent is done smiling his way past our common sense?
    Democracy is two wolves and a sheep voting on what's for dinner (paraphrasing James Bovard).

    He is building upon the infrastructure already in existence. It takes critical thinkers to judge a man wisely and that is not what the electorate is made of.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Re: Obama to Repeat FDR's Scam

    I was just reading about FDR and the New Deal and the events leading to the Great Dep.

    They are all just way too reminiscent to today's standing.

    ...Scary...history repeats itself (like I've never heard that one before..)...


    Yes, I think after this whole ordeal, the line between the US and Europe will be much more of a blur.

    America is becoming too socialist for me. Progressivism is ok, but socialism -
    that is what makes America, America, and not Europe.

    I'll tell you what though, Europe is rejoicing these moves. It's hard to read The Economist magazine after they fell in love with American socialism

    I listen to news on my local npr station and when they bring economists they are always Keynesians. Practically all mainstream economists make me want to pull my hair out.

    McCain was also all for massive spending as some sort of remedy to the situation.

    The phony cons can shut up anytime IMO.

    Yea, when he was nominated it was a huge head slap. During the entire campaign he embraced populist bull and never called out Obama on the obvious fallacies.

    I don't understand what the problem is. The economy has shown once again that it cannot survive without the government.

    How did you come to that conclusion?

    Horrible management on the executive levels? Shady dealings with untrustworthy individuals in the market place? Spending money that does not exist? Corporations "losing" billions of dollars?
