…snip… The takers outnumber the givers, and that will only increase in years to come. The “Occupy” riots across this country in the last two years were mere dress rehearsals for what lies ahead – years of unrest sparked by the increasing discontent of the unsuccessful who want to seize the fruits and the bounty of the successful, and do not appreciate the slow pace of redistribution. If this election proves one thing, it is that the Old America is gone. And, sad for the world, it is not coming back.
The Citizen of the World Presidency… “Start with American military strength, where massive cuts have left us with a Navy of 286 ships—the smallest number since 1917.

Start with American military strength, where massive cuts have left us with a Navy of 286 ships—the smallest number since 1917. When Mitt Romney pointed this out during a presidential debate, Obama replied sarcastically: “Well Governor, we also have fewer horses and bayonets.
Because the nature of the military has changed.” This retort was effective in a smart-ass way, but while the cavalry may be a historical relic, the Navy is not, and it is getting smaller.
So are the Air Force, Army, and Marines, because their budgets are shrinking. This is not the result of technological improvements, as Obama’s quip suggested. Nor is it the unavoidable effect of deficits. It is a policy choice in a Washington where entitlement spending is more sacrosanct than military spending.

Employees of Amazon, which scored a coup by securing a rare one-on-one interview with the president for its journalism outlet Tuesday, donated more than $116,000 to Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign, according to data compiled by the Center for Responsive Politics.
Obama: Top Tax Rate Should Be 28% for Corporations, 40% for Small Business

Obama: Top Tax Rate Should Be 28% for Corporations, 40% for Small Business 2:37 PM, Jul 30, 2013 • By JOHN MCCORMACK
The New York Times reports that President Obama is reviving an old proposal to lower the corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 28 percent (and 25 percent for manufacturers). Obama’s push to lower the corporate tax rate to 28 percent comes less than a year after he raised the top individual income tax rate, paid by many small businesses, to 39.6 percent. Official portrait of Barack Obama
“Right now, our tax code is so riddled with wasteful loopholes that many companies doing the right thing and investing in America pay 35%, while the corporations with the best accountants stash their money abroad and pay little or nothing at all,” Obama said, according to a the text of his prepared remarks. “I’m willing to simplify our tax code in a way that closes those loopholes, ends incentives to ship jobs overseas, and lowers rates for businesses that create jobs right here in America.”

I would call this wishful thinking. Montgomery Blair Sibley has been fighting the courts for over two years. Gutless cowards in black robes. For those unfamiliar with Montgomery, he is a highly skilled attorney who did everything legally possible to get Soetoro removed through the statute passed by Congress to remove someone who has usurped the office they pretend to hold. Such is the case with Barry Soetoro aka Obama. Which is why Soetoro cannot be impeached. Since he usurped the office, he never held or occupied the office of president, therefore, you cannot impeach someone who did not legally occupy the office.

As it is, the US is on the brink of totalitarianism and economic ruin. And you can mark it down, four years from now it won’t matter to a tinker’s dam whether Barack Obama or Mitt Romney was elected President this November. Neither man has the remotest understanding of America’s real problems nor the courage and backbone to do anything about it if they did understand.

By Arnold Ahlert Tuesday, May 14, 2013
Yesterday, administration was involved in a cover-up. “If this was some effort on our part to try to downplay what had happened or tamp it down, that would be a pretty odd thing that three days later we end up putting out all the information,” Obama said.
“Who executes some sort of cover-up or effort to tamp things down for three days? So the whole thing defies logic.” Equally willing to defy logic was Obama’s MSNBC # Chris Matthews, who has been more than eager to carry water for the Obama administration. Indeed, Matthews’ coverage of the unrelenting Benghazi scandal has distinguished itself as being particularly loathsome.
Last Thursday, Matthews was in fine form. After acknowledging that Greg Hicks, former deputy chief of mission in Libya, had testified before the House that he had spoken with Hillary Clinton on the night of the attack and that Clinton’s Chief of Staff tried to intimidate him into silence, Matthews downplayed the egregiousness of the former secretary of State’s scandalous behavior.
Did Rand Paul Win the South Carolina Special Election?
Yahoo News ^ | May 8, 2013 | John A. Tures
Posted on Wednesday, May 08, 2013 8:41:10 AM by johnatures
Media coverage of the South Carolina special election focused upon the candidates, Elizabeth Colbert-Busch and the winner, Mark Sanford. Yet the real winner could turn out to be somebody who isn’t from South Carolina: Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul….
And that is in any mid-term, not just in the more onerous second mid-terms.
But President Obama has decided to defy that history. He has decided not to try to govern with the Republican House majority, but to devote the next 18 months to political posturing and framing the issues so negatively against the Republicans that America would rally to give Obama total control of the government in November 2014, with a restored Democrat majority in the House as well, leaving no check on Obama’s power at all.
That is because President Obama’s goal is the radical transformation of America from the world’s leading capitalist state, the freest, most prosperous, and mightiest in history, into just another socialist third world country.
But he knows he can’t do that with the Republican House majority elected in 2010 precisely to stop his socialist agenda. For that radical, socialist transformation, reflecting what the Democratic Party and their party controlled media lapdogs are really all about, he needs total control of Congress. For that he needs, effectively, a socialist, one-party state, which is actually what he is after in defying history, and seeking a restored Democrat House majority.

The Obama Prophecies! Wake Up America!… “I saw the president of United States, President Obama, standing on the balcony and I saw in his hands a shotgun. All of a sudden…..” | Obama Prophecies
Pastor TD Hale has received two stern warnings from the Lord about Barack Obama. I post them first as they will serve to prepare you for a number of extremely sobering warnings from prophet Linda Newkirk.
I also suggest you visit the links near the very end of this post.
Pastor Hale Dec 28, 2011
I saw the president of United States, President Obama, standing on the balcony and I saw in his hands a shotgun. All of a sudden, to my left hand side I heard a loud scream, real loud. When I turned my head to see where the scream was coming from I saw flying high in the air was a majestic eagle flying in the air around Washington DC. I knew that scream. I knew it was an eagle.
I saw all of a sudden the president of United States point that shotgun and shot that eagle dead and it fell to the ground. When it did I looked back up at him and he just had a smile on his face like a smirk. And these were the words I heard in the dream, “I’ve done it and I won’t have to deal with this in my administration.”
Then there was dead silence. Then I heard a voice say “Tell the people that this is my will, that this is my hand, this is the hand of the Almighty both upon the generation of the righteous and the cursed. The righteous will find their way and will know what to do. The cursed will wander around with no compass because the cup is full.”

“The popular media narrative is that this country has shifted away from conservative ideals, as evidenced by the last two presidential elections. That’s what they think. That’s what say. That might be true if Republicans had actually nominated conservative candidates in 2008 and 2012,” Gov. Rick Perry (R-Texas) said in his address at CPAC this afternoon.
Perry also slammed President Obama for undocumented illegal immigration being released from detention centers due to sequestration cuts. “This president’s posture, it’d be laughable if he hadn’t taken it one step too far, dangerously releasing criminals onto our streets to make a political point,” Perry told the crowd at CPAC.
“When you have a federally-sponsored jailbreak, and don’t get confused, that’s exactly what that is — when you’ve had a federally-sponsored jailbreak, you’ve crossed the line from politics of spin to politics as a craven form of cynicism.”

Melowese Richardson voted a reported six times for President Obama in November of 2012. Twice she used her real name, then another four using the names of her relatives. If convicted she faces a maximum of 12 years in prison.
More disturbing is that Richardson is a long time poll worker and has worked for the Board of Elections in Hamilton County, Ohio since 1998. People like her were watching the polls when President Obama won by close margins, often with “odd” voting totals, in November.
Among these statistical anomalies occurred in Pennsylvania, when President Obama received over 99% of vote at polls where GOP inspectors were removed. In addition, in those areas turnout was somehow “30%” above government numbers.
Obama provokes race war… “Claiming at the outset of his 2008 presidential election campaign that he is a Christian, it appears that his genuine allegiance is to Allah, the Muslim “deity.” “
Over the last four years, Barack Hussein Obama has increasingly revealed his true self. Claiming at the outset of his 2008 presidential election campaign that he is a Christian, it appears that his genuine allegiance is to Allah, the Muslim “deity.”
Obama’s ties to black Muslim leaders and other anti-Semitic racists, such as Louis Farrakhan and Jeremiah Wright, have also disclosed his hand, not to mention his having endorsed the building of a mosque at Ground Zero and his support of radical Islamist groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood in the Middle East.
This and much more have caused an ever-increasing number of Jews and Christians to see Obama as anti-Semitic and anti-Christian, a reality I also firmly believe to be true.
But Obama’s scorn stretches far wider than just the religion and ethnicity of Jews and Christians. Particularly apparent since his re-election, it has also become crystal clear that Obama simply resents people of the white race, even though he is one half white himself.

Karl Rove’s declaration of war on conservatives will bring the GOP a slow and agonizing death « Coach is Right
By Kevin “Coach” Collins
The Republican establishment is still trying to blame conservatives for last November’s disaster.
The phonies of the Karl Rove Wing of the Republican Party didn’t get it then and they still don’t. They are fooling themselves by refusing to look at the numbers. The GOP just doesn’t understand that asking us to vote for a Republican because he is not a Democrat doesn’t fire conservatives up, and the stupid fools think they can win without conservative support.
Following Barack Obama’s victory over Mitt Romney a certain argument became ubiquitous: the argument from demographic inevitability. That the Republican Party, absent deep-seated changes that are all but unimaginable, is in for a generation or more of electoral doom. Indeed the argument was being made long before the votes were even cast. Here was Jonathan Chait in New York magazine, etching the argument sharply almost a year ago:
Are All Those Guns and Ammunition for Obama’s Civilian National Security Force? by Mac Slavo… “This surveillance infrastructure and control grid are being designed not for foreign terrorists or rogue nations that may do harm to America. They have been designed for you. You, my fellow American, are the enemy…………”
But that brings us up to 2013 and the highly unusual stockpiling of firearms and ammo by Homeland Security – firearms and ammo that Obama would like to deny to ordinary citizens who are not members of his domestic army.
Well, I hate to say it, but I may have predicted this, too.
In a Halloween column last fall, I stated that, if re-elected, Obama would “declare a full-scale war on his domestic opposition.”
Are All Those Guns and Ammunition for Obama’s Civilian National Security Force? … “You, my fellow American, are the enemy.” by Mac Slavo
All Those Guns and Ammo
Are they for Obama’s civilian stormtroopers? Article by Mac Slavo.
Speculation abounds surrounding the 2 billion rounds of ammunition purchased by the Department of Homeland Security and other national alphabet agencies in recent years. Moreover, as the White House and their cohorts in Congress contemplate the disarming of American citizens, the very assault weapons purported to be so dangerous in the hands of law abiding gun owners are being purchased in mass quantities by local and federal law enforcement agencies.
So what is the purpose and motivation behind the government’s continued efforts to stockpile so much firepower?One frightening theory could explain what the President and his national security apparatus are up to.
The Republicans are doomed. Conservatism is over. President Obama is conducting a mop-up operation at this point.
And let’s be fair, liberals have every reason to gloat — a little. The GOP has its troubles. Long-term demographic trends; often-irrational animosity from Hollywood, the media, and academia; a thumbless grasp of the culture on the part of many Republicans: All of these things create a headwind for the party and the broader conservative movement.
But here’s the weird part. That’s all true of presidential politics, but less so when it comes to state politics or even other federal races. In 2010, the GOP had its best performance in congressional races since 1938.
Breitbart’s Big Journalism ^ | January 19, 2013 | John NoltePosted on Tuesday, January 22, 2013 3:38:10 PM by 2ndDivisionVetOn Thursday, while looking wistfully back at Obama‘s first four years, NBC News accidentally did some actual reporting. In a First Read article that opened with the question,
“Is the nation better off than it was four years ago,” senior political director, Mark Murray, did something that neither he, nor NBC News, nor the mainstream media was willing to do during this last presidential campaign: report on Obama’s record.But there it finally was: The Truth — and from NBC News, no less.
Poverty’s up from 43.6 million to 46.2 million, middle class incomes are down $50k compared to $52k, the deficit’s exploded from $10 trillion to $16 trillion, food stamp recipients have skyrocketed 33.5 million to 46.6 million, unemployment hasn’t budged, and the same number of people are without health insurance today as there were in 2009.
Still, NBC News couldn’t even bring itself to report the most damning Obamanomics numbers: a population so despondent by a lack of jobs that enough people have dropped out to shrink the labor market to levels unseen since the 1980s. A chronic long-term unemployment problem unseen in this country since World War II.
Passion, Principle, and Politics… (“Didn’t Ron Paul Really Win? Lynette Rosinger on 8 reasons not to be sad Romney lost.”)
The authors agree that Romney was an outstanding candidate, that he was an admirable man, and that Ryan was a wise choice as a running mate. They concur that he lost because our nation has become immature, and irresponsible. They both fear that because of this, America as we have known it, is over or at least close to the brink.
I agree with the authors about the challenges posed by a left-wing media and I acknowledge that the institutional woes that characterize our current culture are worrisome. But, when it comes to the authors’ conclusion that the nation hit a tipping point with this election and that we are over the brink in terms of people who do not want freedom outnumbering those who do, I believe they are wrong.
The U.S. Senator (R-Ky.), who is already being touted as a 2016 Republican presidential candidate, was recently appointed to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, and is showing some strong Woodrow Wilson-style isolationist tendencies.
The role of the committee, according to its own website, is to “develop and influence United States foreign policy,” and in the past has “helped shape foreign policy of broad significance.” In other words, the actions of the committee matter just a bit, and the membership of a Senator like Rand Paul, who’s primary policy goal seems to be deficit reduction and budget balancing to the exclusion and possible detriment of all other policies, is a worrying prospect to many, particularly in the pro-Israel community.

America is a nation that has known tragedy but will never be able to come together in suffering and support.
America is crumbling from within and even the wanton killings of the innocent children of Sandy Hook Elementary School have failed to touch hearts hardened over long years of brutality.
The murder of twenty children, mostly five and six-year-olds, in an otherwise peaceful town in Connecticut is conveniently called a “tragedy.” It is much more than that.
I refer to the children only though there were seven adults that were butchered also. Children represent something that is supposed to be universal to all of us, something everyone can understand, parents, grandparents, siblings, the idea of a small child, forty pounds, not yet four feet tall, shot nearly a dozen times with a precision Swiss semi-automatic pistol, this should be a picture all can draw common horror from.
…..When Ron Paul says he wants to cut military spending on foreign wars, that is all that is generally heard. The whole story, that he does not want to cut DEFENSE spending, the funds which defend the country, does not get told. The difference between defense spending and spending on nation building and policing the world is a distinction Ron Paul sees very clearly. Why is this not seen by much of the country? Is it because this cannot be explained in a 60-second debate answer or 15-second soundbite?
Apparently, according to Time Magazine, Ron Paul’s message actually is getting through to lots of people:
Time Magazine, in preparation for their 100 most influential people of 2012, had a poll. In this poll, you could vote for the person you considered most influential person in the world. Ron Paul was the highest rated 2012 presidential candidate in this poll, and in fact had tens of thousands more votes than Mitt Romney. Presidential candidate Ron Paul received more votes than President Obama.
Time Magazine took their poll and used that data to create their own list of the 100 most influential people in the world in 2012. That list is now available. The 12-term Congressman from Texas has made the list.
So why does the mainstream media, the Republican establishment, and much of the country, not consider Ron Paul a serious candidate for POTUS? Perhaps it really is the soundbites. Though Paul’s message actually can be summed up succinctly, as evidenced by is commercial set to air in Rhode Island:
Because this is America, and freedom is, and should be, the ONLY issue. The problem is that Mitt Romney and most of the Republican establishment doesn’t know how to articulate WHY liberty is so important in a free republic. They have their speech writers, handlers, and poll takers who tell them what to say, when to say it, and to whom it should be said.
Thus, they have put themselves in a position to be followers – followers of the very people who expect them to lead. But very few of these politicians have liberty not only as their core philosophy, but their first and foremost priority as a campaign issue. Without freedom, nothing else in this country works, and we cease to be America……………..

The truth about the Obama syndicate’s “victory” in November due to the most massive voter fraud in American history has become increasingly dire and overwhelming. It is also merely the latest treasonous act perpetrated upon We-the-Peopleby our slave masters.
And — with the exception of the still-sycophantic Obama-media who enthusiastically embrace totalitarianism — said “win” by Obama shows how quickly he and the Marxist Democrat Party (with the help of willing RINO Senators and incorrectly named “representatives” of the people) affected the complete overthrow of the United States government…and We-the-People. If you are uncomfortable with these truths and believe that the telling of them constitutes defeatism, I suggest you stop reading now. My message will not get any rosier.
For those of you still reading, let’s jump in without further ado — or adieu as it were — shall we?
-Facts already in Place-
Jamie Foxx: ‘Our Lord and Savior Barack Obama‘Filed under: News — Leave a comment November 26, 2012Reblogged from U.S. Constitutional Free Press:Oscar-winning actor Jamie Foxx recently called Barack Obama “our lord and savior.”
WASHINGTON — Facing the possibility that President Obama might not win a second term, his administration accelerated work in the weeks before the election to develop explicit rules for the targeted killing of terrorists by unmanned drones, so that a new president would inherit clear standards and procedures, according to two administration officials.The matter may have lost some urgency after Nov. 6.
But with more than 300 drone strikes and some 2,500 people killed by the Central Intelligence Agency and the military since Mr. Obama first took office, the administration is still pushing to make the rules formal and resolve internal uncertainty and disagreement about exactly when lethal action is justified.More broadly, the administration’s legal reasoning has not persuaded many other countries that the strikes are acceptable under international law. For years before the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, the United States routinely condemned targeted killings of suspected terrorists by Israel, and most countries still object to such measures.But since the first targeted killing by the United States in 2002, two administrations have taken the position that the United States is at war with Al Qaeda and its allies and can legally defend itself by striking its enemies wherever they are found.
The attempt to write a formal rule book for targeted killing began last summer after news reports on the drone program, started under President George W. Bush and expanded by Mr. Obama, revealed some details of the president’s role in the shifting procedures for compiling “kill lists” and approving strikes. Though national security officials insist that the process is meticulous and lawful, the president and top aides believe it should be institutionalized, a course of action that seemed particularly urgent when it appeared that Mitt Romney might win the presidency.
Tribal America… (“… Kirsten Powers argued that Republicans needed to deal with the reality that America is becoming what she called a “brown country.” “)
To an immigrant such as myself (not the undocumented kind, but documented up to the hilt, alas), one of the most striking features of election-night analysis was the lightly worn racial obsession.
Her fellow Democrat Bob Beckelobserved on several occasions that if the share of the “white vote” was held down below 73 percent Romney would lose. In the end, it was 72 percent and he did. Beckel’s assertion — that if you knew the ethnic composition of the electorate you also knew the result — turned out to be correct.
This is what less enlightened societies call tribalism: For example, in the 1980 election leading to Zimbabwe’s independence, Joshua Nkomo’s ZAPU-PF got the votes of the Ndebele people while Robert Mugabe’s ZANU-PF secured those of the Shona — and, as there were more Shona than Ndebele, Mugabe won. That same year America held an election, and Ronald Reagan won a landslide victory.
“The pro-Obama group wants to avoid large conventional commitments. They want to rely on cyber-warfare, drones, assassinations, bombing, raids by special forces, and economic warfare in the form of trade sanctions and technology embargoes.”
‘Israel defense systems not working well’
‘Zionists seek to abuse US UNHRC place’
Sometimes, generals purge politicians. In 1648, during the English Civil War, Colonel Pride and his troops removed those members of the Long Parliament who opposed military domination; the puppets who remained were called the Rump Parliament.
This year, a cabal of generals evidently believed it could secure the White House for Mitt Romney by staging the Benghazi incident and using it as the signal for a cold coup under cover of elections — probably including computer-generated election fraud — to bring down Obama. They guessed wrong.
Chuck Baldwin — One Good Thing The Reelection Of Barack Obama Has Accomplished… (“A Sleeping Giant Is Awaking”)
A Sleeping Giant Is Awaking
Many people across the country are rightly concerned as to what another four-year Obama administration is going to accomplish. According to the UK’s Daily Mail Online, “Although America carried President Obama confidently into a second term last Tuesday–not everyone is jumping for joy at the prospect of four more years.
“Tens of thousands have put their names to secession petitions in 20 states, asking that they peacefully become independent from the rest of the country.
“The documents have been lodged on a government website We The People–and Texas has almost enough people behind its petition to warrant an official White House response.
“Along with the Lone Star state, petitions were filed from Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oregon, South Carolina and Tennessee. So keen are the folks in Georgia for a separation, that they filed their petition twice.
RUSH: We got this piece in The Daily Beast: “A Scarlet Letter — the Monica Lewinsky-ing of Paula Broadwell — When powerful men stray, the press continues to ogle, and shame, the women they do it with, writes Allison Yarrow.” And this whole story got me to thinking about how the country’s changed in terms of simple things like humor. What used to be harmless, clever humor, today is heard by the people who’ve been educated the last 30, 35 years, today causes legitimate anger and indignation and charges of cruelty and insensitivity and bigotry or sexism or what have you. I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about this.
Presidential Policy Directive 20 establishes a broad and strict set of standards to guide the operations of federal agencies in confronting threats in cyberspace, according to several U.S. officials who have seen the classified document and are not authorized to speak on the record. The president signed it in mid-October.

This man says what we all are thinking. He is furious, but calm. The outrage is boiling.Obama Won Because Of Voter Fraud All Over
A score of people this past week have asked me about the three million Republicans allegedly “missing” at the polls this year. For starters, if the Washington Post is to be believed, Mitt Romney received 1.3 million fewer votes than John McCain did in 2008, not 3 million. For the record, Obama received 7.5 million fewer votes in 2012 than he did in 2008.
More than 1.1 million of the Republican votes were “lost” in California. It is not that California Republicans turned against Romney. His percentage of the vote was higher than McCain’s in 2008. It is just they know their votes were in vain in that increasingly absurd state. The same is likely true in New York State where Romney fell more than a half-million votes short of McCain’s totals. Excluding these two states, Romney received 300,000 more votes than McCain.
That much said, the results in several states do raise eyebrows, most notably Ohio and Pennsylvania. Romney received nearly 100,000 fewer votes than McCain in the former and 35,000 fewer votes in the latter. In all the other battleground states, Romney improved both on McCain’s raw numbers and his percentage of the vote.
What Went Wrong Last Tuesday… (“The Republican Party needs to take responsibility for this disaster……….”)
The obvious questions are: “How can Americans have re-elected a president who has presided over an economy where unemployment still hovers at 8 percent ?”
…..Last night, I was rooting, of course, for Gary Johnson to break that 5% barrier. But, as between Obama and Romney, I favored the former. I did so for precisely the same reasons as I supported Obama vis a vis McCain in 2008: foreign policy.
My fear was that if elected, Romney would start a war with China, Iran, and who knows who else. In contrast, Obama had four years to do that, and refrained. Another reason: at least we can trust Obama to be the socialist, interventionist, moderate war-monger that he has proven himself to be. In contrast, with Romney, he has been on every side of every issue; you just can’t trust that man to cleave to any principle. Also, I’ll never forgive Romney for what he did to my man, Ron Paul. Yes, yes, Romney might have been better on economic policy than Obama.
…..Why did the Romney campaign fail? Maybe the country is now GOP-proof. That is, maybe a Constitution-guided, free-market, limited-government candidate no longer can “appeal” to the majority of the electorate. It could be that the death knell rang early this year once 67.3 million of us, or one in five Americans, had come to depend on federal assistance, formerly known as “the dole.
”This nearly takes us back to the level we hit in 1994 23.1 percent, before President Bill Clinton and the GOP-led Congress “ended” welfare as we knew it. After a noticeable decline, the percentage skyrocketed during President Obama’s first term. So, too, did the percentage of Americans who pay zero federal taxes, now a shocking 49.5 percent. Right off the bat, half the country listens to Mitt Romney promise to relieve taxpayers of the onerous burdens imposed by the federal government and either fears for its livelihood or hears static.It was exactly such an economic message that formed not just the core of Romney’s campaign, but all of it. On one level, this exclusive focus on economic issues to the point of tunnel vision marked a campaign determined to play it safe. On another level, it was a huge gamble, a roll of the dice on which Romney staked everything.
The Progressives won on Tuesday.
I don’t mean the people who voted Democrat who call themselves “progressive.” Though they won, too.
The words “government” and “state” are often used interchangeably, but they are really different things. According to the Founders’ vision, the people are sovereign and the government belongs to us. Under the European notion of the state, the people are creatures of the state, significant only as parts of the whole.
This European version of the state can be nice. One can live comfortably under it. Many decent and smart people sincerely believe this is the intellectually and morally superior way to organize society. And, to be fair, it’s not a binary thing. The line between the European and American models is blurry. France is not a Huxleyan dystopia, and America is not and has never been an anarchist’s utopia, nor do conservatives want it to be one.

Lawmaker: If president gets 2nd term, he’ll spring these regulations on America
President Obama’s re-election campaign theme is “Forward,” but Sen. James Inhofe says Obama has purposefully spent the past four years destroying every institution that makes America great and making life miserable for American businesses of all kinds.
Inhofe, R-Okla., also revealed what he calls Obama’s “November surprise” – detailed plans for massive regulation if he wins re-election.
Inhofe told WND’s Greg Corombos people from his state constantly tell him they feel targeted by government regulations, and he used energy as a prime example.
“They have this war on fossil fuels,” Inhofe said. “He’s doing everything to kill domestic production of oil, natural gas and coal. This is something that is just un-American.”
