It's not anyones guess what will happen. Obama told you what he wants to do.
He's gonna tax people to death and try to use Government to redistribute wealth. He wants big Government with strong Government control to bring
about what he calls economic and social justice.
This will fail because the Government was not set up for this. It was set up to protect the God Given liberty of the individual, not run people's
So it's obvious what Obama will do and it will not work. Blind Ideology never works.
This is what he said in 2001:
Seven years before Barack Obama's "spread the wealth" comment to Joe the Plumber became a GOP campaign theme, the Democratic presidential
candidate said in a radio interview the U.S. has suffered from a fundamentally flawed Constitution that does not mandate or allow for redistribution
But, the Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth, and of more basic issues such as political and economic justice in
society. To that extent, as radical as I think people try to characterize the Warren Court, it wasn't that radical. It didn't break free from the
essential constraints that were placed by the Founding Fathers in the Constitution, at least as it's been interpreted, and the Warren Court
interpreted in the same way, that generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties. Says what the states can't do to you. Says what the
federal government can't do to you, but doesn't say what the federal government or state government must do on your behalf.
You can listen to the radio interview here.
The reason why Romney or any pragmatist will have trouble, will be because Conservatives will want an idealogue.
Obama will destroy the economy and Universal Health Care if enacted will not work. I just worry about my business and families well being and I hope
America elects a pragmatist after Obama if there's a country to elect a President in.
It's very dangerous for anyone to say the Constitution is flawed because it doesn't fit their ideology. I can tell you Obama's Presidency will be a
disaster because he can't think past his ideology.
The only thing that might stop Obama is if you get a Republican Congress in 2010.
Bill Clinton was a success because he had to triangulate. This meant he had to think past ideology. Hopefully this will happen in 2010 and hopefully
Obama and the Democrats don't damage the country further before then with their blind ideology.
