I have not been delivering posts for this blog of late for a number of reasons, but this is one that I must write. Normally, I provide solutions, but in this case I have no solutions to offer. Now that the primaries are underway and some have finished, we begin to see the landscape shaping toward a removal of incumbents in both parties. While the removal of incumbents, especially those who are progressive socialists / large central government heavy spending types is essential, we are headed to a dramatic radical change in this nation; one that we have never experienced, at least in my lifetime. When we complete the purge of the Congress in both the House and Senate (only one-third of the senate is up for reelection) in the general election, we will have created a powerful lame-duck beast.
From November 3rd through and including January 3rd 2011, we will have between 40 and 50 unseated politicians who have nothing to lose by doing President Obama’s bidding. The draconian severity of the legislation these lame ducks will pass for their President to sign will be earthshaking. We will see amnesty and citizenship for illegal aliens, and a bailout of the union pension funds. Keep in mind that the unions have unsustainable pension problems because they simply cannot fund the promises made and they have used their available funds to get socialist progressive candidates elected. During this dark period we will see our government collected tax money used to reimburse unions for the vast sums they poured into the campaigns of the folks who will now pay them back with our money. This means that these unions will have dramatically transformed our America from what we know with our own money.
You might say that when we have replaced these incumbents with fresh faces we can reverse the legislation of the 111th Congress. Well we will need two-thirds of each house to override the President’s veto. During this period of lame duck representation, those who are shy right now in the campaign period to increase our deficit and our debt will be unshackled from the fear of being voted out. They will now be able to set a record for stimulus, earmarks, and progressive big government legislation, along with a massive cap-and-trade bill to solve an imaginary man-made climate problem – it is really a worldwide wealth redistribution tax that will be imposed.
We will see Puerto Rico as our 51st state, an end to drilling for oil in this country, and the beginning of serfdom for the citizens of the United States of America. We will also see an intentional further opening of the border with Mexico. Every dream that the progressive wealth redistribution activists have ever had will become a reality during this lame duck period – they will have nothing to lose.
President Obama will be served his radical transformation of America on a silver platter – he will only have to sign legislation. During the revolution lame-duck period there will be no checks and balance system that we need to protect this country from ruin.
