What Is Barack Obama's 'Real' Second Term Plan?Topics:
Over at The American Spectator, Ned Ryun provides folks planning to vote for Barack Obama something to think about before they cast their ballot for the transformer-in-chief - 'Obama's Real Second Term Plan', and it comes with a warning: You won't recognize this country after his second term -- the obvious reason he's not telling you what he has in mind for it:
Mitt Romney said it best in the last debate when he informed the President that, "attacking me isn't an agenda," which prompted the Obama campaign to immediately release what they call a plan for the second term. This 20-page repackaging of speeches notwithstanding, President Obama remains perhaps the only president in history to run for reelection who not only can't talk about his record but also can't discuss his real agenda for a second term.Keep reading ... and then think very hard about the genuine consequences of an Obama second term.
Now it's not that he can't because he doesn't have any ideas about what he wants to do. He does have big plans, but his vision of the future is profoundly different from that of most Americans. The America that Obama sees when he sits on the Truman Balcony at night and dreams about the next four years is radically altered reality for everyone. It should scare every American -- unless you happen to be getting Obama's free cell phone service.
Obama would like everyone to believe that his second-term policies will address what he sees as the great inequalities and unfairness inherent in the American system. He wants to level the playing field. What he can't tell you -- and what most Americans are realizing -- is that leveling out America will reduce freedom, opportunity, income, innovation, and upward mobility in favor of a government-driven economy. With a government-driven society will come statism, and collectivism follows right on the heels of statism, which will destroy America.
Here's the stark proof, keeping in mind that this is a mere snapshot of the "remaking" Obama has in store that will affect millions of American families and businesses. The President's proposed budget projects will have federal spending soaring to $5.820 trillion per year, making Obama the biggest government spender in the history of the world. With all the talk from the President about spending cuts to satisfy independent voters, the sum of all of Obama's spending over the next ten years could total more than $40 trillion that we simply don't have.
We can't afford Washington's spending now. Do we really think only the wealthy will foot the bill for such dramatic increases in government expenditures? The President's proposals will drive $100 billion in tax hikes next year and more than $2 trillion in tax increases over the next 10 years hitting every American. ...
As Ryun goes on to point out, as ominous as all this is, there is some positive news. We can prevent Obama's America from becoming a reality. We can stop statism and collectivism from taking us from "one out of many" to one of the many nations whose governments' thirst for power and control led to the decline of great societies and nations. The choice is ours November 6, and the results of the election, whichever way they go, will resonate for generations to come.
