First casualty in second Obama term: Liberty
Question of the Day
Many voters say this presidential election comes down to the economy. Others say they’re voting on social issues like abortion, or foreign policy and America’s role in the world.
“The danger is that 2012 may not only the most important election of our lifetimes, but that it will be the last chance we have to save liberty as Americans have known it since 1776,” they write in their recently released book, “Fool Me Twice: Obama’s Shocking Plans for the Next Four Years Exposed.”
In his now-infamous “flexibility” comments to Russian President Vladimir Putin earlier this year, President Obama revealed that he has a hidden agenda ready to implement after re-election.
Their book, intended to be a sort of blueprint for the next four years of an Obama presidency, lays out his plans for the military, a new green stimulus, immigration and amnesty, health care, jobs and wages, and the economy.
“Fool Me Twice” is intended simply to inform voters by divulging what the president won’t say, Mr. Klein told Times247 in an interview last week. Mr. Obama’s “ultimate aim,” he said, “is to implement a progressive utopia.”
Because the president has had to fight for re-election, he has kept many aspects of his progressive policies quiet, or repackaged them to lull the public into complacency: wealth redistribution becomes “paying a fair share,” amnesty becomes “a path to citizenship.”
But the danger is that, if he’s elected to a second term, the president won’t have to worry about voters’ approval. For the next four years, he will be free to implement as many progressive policies as he can ram through Congress or deem into existence through executive orders.
For those who doubt the revelation of a progressive agenda, Mr. Klein noted that the president has been closely associated with socialist groups since the beginning of his political career, and he himself said his goal is “to fundamentally change America.” While not all progressive ideas coming through Mr. Obama’s administration originate with him, he is the vehicle for socialist groups like the Center for American Progress and the Institute for Policy Studies to turn their proposals into law, Mr. Klein said.
“He is one of them. He is them,” he said.
The most immediate danger if Mr. Obama is re-elected is the economy.
“We’re on the cusp of an economic emergency,” Mr. Klein said. “We have such great debt we can’t afford these plans.”
Whether it’s higher taxes, expanded welfare rolls, “paycheck fairness” legislation or unchecked deficit spending, each bullet point of the president’s economic plan leads to more dependency and debt, Mr. Klein said.
“They all translate to, number one, more government intervention, but number two, a lot more spending,” Mr. Klein said. “I believe this second-term agenda will bankrupt the country.”
