In Lincoln’s Image

Illinois is famous for its corrupt politicians; we need look no further than the current headlines pertaining to their governor.  And God help us all, Obama is from Illinois.  Of course, he could surprise us all and be the most honest and forthright president we’ve ever had, but that’s not likely.  Obama has surrounded himself with Clintonites, some of which already have their hands dirty from the massacre in Waco and the Oklahoma City Bombing coverup.  Obama is also a socialist and an outspoken advocate for a strong central government.  Both of these ideals require corruption, due to the fact that the Constitution is preventative of socialism and a strong central government.  While comparisons have been made between Obama and FDR, Obama himself has been far more willing to invite comparisons of himself and Lincoln.  This is quite disturbing, because Lincoln was perhaps the most glaring example of how NOT to operate as president.  Lincoln suspended habeas corpus, engaged the South without a war declaration, jailed the Maryland legislature, shut down newspapers in the North that were critical of his war, conscripted soldiers, opposed a constitutional amendment that would have ended slavery, and crafted the Emancipation Proclamation in such a way that it would not free a single slave.  Yet the myth of Lincoln as “Honest Abe” persists, even in the face of the facts.  Likewise, the myth of Obama has glossed over the dull cow eyes of those who voted for him.  He received their worship and praise even though the man hardly had a record, and we barely knew anything about him.  Has has been truly cast in Lincoln’s image, and surely we will erect a monument to him even after he has put us through whatever acts of tyranny he is surely already contemplating.  Remember, the government controls what is put in the textbooks, and even though we’ll know the truth at the present time, history can be whitewashed with alarming efficiency.

Tyranny from the Treasury

The Big Three auto bailout passed in the House, but died in the Senate.  Over night, the executive branch under George W. Bush decided to formulate a plan to take action on their own.  Since they didn’t like what happened in the legislative branch, they have decided to try and use some of the funds from the TARP bailout passed several weeks ago.  George W. Bush and his administration have proven once again that they are nothing but socialists who believe central planning is the only way to run an economy.  In Bush’s feeble mind, the free market cannot possibly be trusted and market corrections cannot be allowed to take place.  I think alot of what Bush is doing now can be attributed to what he wants his legacy to be.  He doesn’t want to be known as the president who allowed the Big Three to go down and cause millions more to lose their jobs.  That’s all well and good, but the problem here is that the Constitution doesn’t give the executive branch the power to centrally plan the economy.  But the Constitution hasn’t exactly stopped Bush from doing stupid and bad things before, so why should it now?
