Here's how I see things working out. I sincerely hope I'm wrong. But is it possible? The progressives are a slick bunch. They have sown their seeds well, and the crop is growing. In my opinion they have planned the harvest for 2020.
Barack Obama told us in January of 2008 that he was 5 days away from fundamentally transforming America. The destruction he has initiated - the divisiveness, the spending, the picking and choosing of laws to enforce, the suing of states, the pushing of the envelope in terms of how much power he can concentrate in the Executive Branch of the government through the use of czars (but not only czars, but socialists and communists, as well as full fledged progressives) - while being felt now in small ripples with growing concern over his agenda, will largely be felt only after he leaves office. Many things don't kick in until 2013, remember.
So why is that? He has mentioned that he won't be disappointed if he is a one-term president. He says he'd rather be a good (that's ambivalent) one-term president than a mediocre two-term president. Even if he wanted to run for a second term, which I don't believe he wants, I doubt he could get re-elected. His disdain for the will of the American people is just too great and too evident. So, I believe he will be a one-term president by choice.
So what happens in the next election? I believe that Obama will continue to push his radical agenda for the next two years, he'll continue to thwart the will of the people at every possible turn, and he'll continue to divide the country. He will also continue to push his "ad campaign" that this is all the fault of the previous administration, and George Bush. Ah, those nasty Republicans, they must be branded, and branded, and branded. But he will also create so much disdain for the Democratic Party through his policies and agenda that there will be no obstacle to a Republican gaining office in 2012, despite his continued demonizing of them. It has to be that way for the 12-yr plan to actually work.
But as soon as Obama leaves office, the agenda he has pushed for and the policies and laws he's passed in his 4 years in office will take affect - very shrewd on his part (or the part of whomever created this plan). Those policies and legislation, if it has not already occurred will culminate in a depression - perhaps a second great depression. Hmmm, a republican will be in office, completely out of control of the events that will occur because of the policies and legislation that this administration has put in play. I imagine what occurs in the next two years of obama's reign will successfully prevent any action taken by the next administration from working. Thus that President will also be a one-term President. The hue and cry will be so loud relative to the ineptitude of that President, and spewed so willingly over the airwaves by the progressive media, that it will be lapped up willingly by the ignorant masses, and a new progressive democrat will be ushered into the oval office as the new savior of America in 2016. Along with him/her will be the second coming of the obama congress - democratically (progressively) controlled, both houses.
At that point, there will be nothing that the American people can do. Most will be demoralized by the depression they have lived through. many will be looking to the government to save them. Millions will allow any form of government that can help them, and the Republic will be over once and for all, finally, sadly.
I hope that I am wrong. But these guys have been planning for nearly 50 years to take over America and transform her. Do you think they got to 2008 and stopped planning? Don't you think there is more to the plan? These guys are not stupid. They are many things, but not stupid. They will not leave their golden opportunity to chance. They will have planned well enough to accomplish their goal once they made their move. They've made their move. Why do you think they are so open about what they are doing? Why do you think they are so disdainful towards the very people they have been elected to serve? Because the pretense is no longer needed. They already know the end game plan and they can see the results favor thei success of their plan.
So while we're all focused on 2010 and 2012, they are a few steps ahead of us. They have made the destruction of America possible with the election of 2008, and they will realize that goal in 2020...
There will be great misery in the coming 6 to 8 years. There will undoubtedly be great violence as well. I don't look forward to the coming years. I don't know how anyone survives unscathed. I pray to God that my assessment of the next 10 years is wrong, that it is so grossly miscalculated that it is looked back upon and scoffed at. Pray with me...
How Could This Possibly Have Happened In My Lifetime? It Is So Surreal.
