Obama calls for Revolution

Posted by revkharma on January 18, 2009

Preparing to board a train for his ride to the nation’s capital, Obama said that “what’s required is a new declaration of independence — from ideology and small thinking.” –President Elect Obama in Philadelphia

The all wonderful Mr.Obama gave a speech in Philadelphia. He invoked the founders, and called upon Americans to exhibit courage, specifically the courage of the Founders.

As he takes office, we find a federal budget with a deficit which has grown to incredible proportions. Mr. Obama is poised to roughly double it with his ‘recovery plan’. The smoke and mirrors he employs would impress the best of stage magicians. Hidden behind all the obfuscation is one central theme: Expand the scope, size and reach of the Federal Government in D.C.

His choices for various cabinet posts display a staggering penchant for expansive powers of government, and show his plans to bring the power of Washington to bear in more and more intrusive ways than anyone since Woodrow Wilson ever dreamt of. Look to Tom Daschle, as HHS secretary, whose stiletto politics will drive a new push to nationalize healthcare. Eric Holder as attorney General brings a new level of corruption to the post. His handling of Bill Clinton’s last minute pardons , including FALN terrorists who never even requested them shows his subversion of justice to political ends. Mr. Obama’s choice for the EPA has long ties to extremist leftist organizations. John Holdren, the presidents Science adviser is an ally of Paul Ehrlich, of ‘population bomb’ fame, and various other discredited scientific frauds.

The permanent campaign has now added a new and chilling extension. Obama’s vast fund raising machinery has continued an unprecedented fund raising operation even after the conclusion of the election. The mystery is gradually being resolved, and it is not a heartwarming situation. Team Obama is devising what is, in effect, their own political party. The monies raised will go exclusively to a significant staff of permanent political operatives who will engage immediately in preparing for the next election cycle. Most interesting of all is the formation of a ‘service organization’ funded directly by Obama’s political campaign funds, through private donations.

In what would be another unprecedented step, Obama’s political staff is deciding whether to create a service organization that would use the vast corps of its grass-roots campaign supporters. As described by one source knowledgeable with the discussions, this nonprofit arm would be used to help victims of natural disasters, but would do so under the Obama umbrella while continuing to build the overall network’s massive e-mail database.

The prospect of a president being able to guide a service or relief agency outside the framework of his government is a unique development

Of course, this will always be devoted to the most high minded of causes. I do feel like I need to ask one question though: ” What color shirts will they wear?”  Brown or Black?

Obama’s speech in Philadelphia, made while fawning media compared him to Abraham Lincoln was headlined this way:

Obama: Americans must emulate courage of founders 

He elaborated  with some wonderful tidbits:

President-elect Barack Obama is calling on Americans to live up to the courage and sacrifice of the country’s founders as they strive to redeem the promise of freedom.

Even better is this :

Obama said that “what’s required is a new declaration of independence — from ideology and small thinking.

So, in answer to our next President’s call for us to model our behavior, and exhibit the courage of the Founders, I offer the following pledge as a way of following his suggestion. I assure you, this is not “Small Thinking”.  A few minor changes and it applies even today!

[My sincere apologies to the author of the original!]

 Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies,[States] solemnly publish and declare, That these united Colonies  [States]are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States, that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown,[DC Government] and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain,[DC Government] is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. — And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.

 This is the courage of the Founders. Mr. Obama would do well to use caution in his wishes and instructions to the People of America. He may find he gets more than he anticipates!
As Always,
Keep the Faith!
The Rev!
You can have peace. Or you can have freedom. Don’t ever count on having both at once.
