The Marxist Revolution

So. The long hard campaign is finally over. No more campaign ads. No more political pollsters bothering you during dinner time. No more mailings. No more listening to pundit after pundit drumbeating for their guy. Well. At least for the next 18 months.

So I guess congratulations are in order. The liberal media got what they wanted. They got their Marxist Revolution through. Protect your wallets people, you're about to have them picked clean. If you're "rich" that is. If not, then open them wide up because Obama is about to fill them full of other peoples' money. I realize that there are an awful lot of people who think that's just fine. I guarantee you the vast majority of them either weren't alive during the Carter administration or have gone senile since then, leaving those of us who are lucid and still have those memories as the only ones who were and still are raising the alarm.

The final results:

Barck Obama: 63,507,800 [52%] popular votes - 349 Electoral votes.
John McCain: 56,151,859 [46%] popular votes - 163 Electoral votes.

Senate: 56 Democrat, 40 Republican, with 2 Independents. Apparently 2 more races are left to call?
House: 254 Democrat, 173 Republican. Oi.

The only good news here? The Senate fell just short of being filibuster-proof. But not by much. This is a massive swing in favor of Marxism/Liberalism in the US and spells certain disaster. Sad to see there are so damn many stupid people in this country. Almost enough to make you want to pack up and head for Canada. Where ironically enough they're in the middle of a conservative awakening after 40 years of heavily oppressive liberal policies.

My only hope is that there will be another conservative awakening here in 2-4 years. It clearly depends on how bad the damage is by the time the next Congressional cycle is due up. 2 years is a long time to suffer. 4 years will be devastating. God help us if Obama gets re-elected in 2012.

So what's an Obama administration mean? Here's the deal:

1. Higher taxes on everyone making $150,000 or more in income per year. This will fall squarely on the backs of small businesses rather than most individuals. That's assuming of course the $150K figure doesn't drop again before January. If they have their way then there's plenty of evidence out there to suggest Obama really wants this set closer to $50K. Surprise! I bet you had no idea you're rich! Don't bother selling anything of significant value for at least the next 2 years either. Capital gains taxes are about to double. If you're thinking of rolling something to avoid it, get it done before January. Or move your assets to a Cayman Islands account. But be quick about it either way.

2. Surrender in Iraq in no more than 16 months. He's made that case pretty damn clear. The troops will be coming home. Whether we've achieved our final result or not. Despite the fact that we've more or less won the thing. Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory is something the Dems do best. But our boys in Europe and South Korea? They get to stay put. Bosnia? Sorry, you're not going anywhere. The logic here escapes me.

3. Massive cuts in military spending. Barney Frank said it clearly and in the open. To his credit, it was an honest statement. Defense spending can expect to see at least a 25% reduction, similar to that under Clinton. The reason for this is because they can't find any other way to pay for their pending mountain of giveaways. Cutting spending where it actually should be cut hasn't even crossed their minds. Once these deep military spending cuts have time to take hold, you can probably expect terrorist attacks against the US to increase. Potentially even culminating on another strike here at home.

4. A very deep and very painful recession, bordering on an outright economic depression. This ties back into #1. As taxes go up, businesses will have to cut costs. The very first thing Corporate America does when it comes time for cuts is to reduce headcount. That means massive layoffs. If that's not enough, and there's every indication it won't be, then they simply raise prices on their goods to make up the difference. Which is paradoxical since you just fired 20% of your workforce. The 500+ point drop in the DOW today pretty clearly indicates that Corporate America knows exactly what's coming.

5. Tied directly to #4, unemployment figures will skyrocket. It's been reported on several news outlets that we could be looking at 10% within a year if Obama actually goes ahead with everything he wants. And Congress is now positioned to give it to him with barely any resistance. If you have a job now, for God sake, don't quit. If you're out of work now ( like me ) it might be time to consider finding those bread lines.

6. The Fairness Doctrine. Democrats have made it perfectly clear they were pissed off when that got tanked by Reagan and they were never able to get it back. The 2 year window they had with Clinton got chewed up on other crap like Hillarycare. Thank God for that, but don't think they haven't already got this on the agenda. Obama wants it. Reid wants it. Pelosi wants it. And their target will be right wing talk radio and blog sites. Just like this one. So don't be at all surprised if somewhere down the road this site vanishes. The old saying about "I wasn't a Jew" or however it goes applies perfectly well here. Just remember, when they come for you, nobody will be left to protect you.

7. Citizenship/Amnesty for 30 million illegals. What? You thought there were only 12 million? That 12 million figure is rather old at this point. All objective estimates put the figure much higher, some as high as 50 million, some as low as 15 million. 30 million is probably a safe estimate. What does this mean? It means a whole hell of a lot of Democrats waiting in the wings to vote in 2-4 years. Legally anyway. Anyone with a brain knows they've already been voting in large numbers illegally. Which just means it will be that much hard to root the liberals out of power in the future. Which is exactly how they want it. The big danger here is that McCain will probably side with these bastards and make it that much worse.

8. Russian aggression will be sharply on the rise. Putin himself laughed his ass off at Obama's pathetic response to the Georgian crisis. One need only look at today's headline to know what's to come. The Russians are already vowing to begin a second Cold War. Of course, chances are Obama is going to cave in and cancel the missile shield and leave our allies twisting in the wind like never before.

9. Unrestricted negotiations with Iran. Yep. Forgot about that I bet. Obama made it very clear on many occasions that he'd sit down at the table with Ahmadinejad. Without setting any preconditions. Such as no more nuke program. Count on the Iranians accelerating their aggression and their nuclear program over the next 2 years while the window is wide open.

10. Liberal judges on the US Supreme Court. I bet nobody bothered to think of this either. An Obama appointment will mean major setbacks for those of us on the right for decades to come as many decisions which began to undo the liberal stranglehold on our courts will swiftly be undone. The really bad part about this is, even if the country wises up in a hurry, if someone on the Court dies next year, you can count on the Senate rushing to confirm whoever Obama picks and you can count on a bitter and destructive effort on their part to crush any potential filibuster by the Republicans. You haven't seen activist judges until you've seen a Court filled with the likes of Ginsberg and Stevens. We should be damn thankful the last two appointments were Bushies.

11. Skyrocketing interest rates on housing and car loans. Don't beleive me? Ask your parents how much their mortgage rates were back in 1977. You might just have to pick your jaw up off the floor. My parents got bit by this one firsthand. Their mortgage rate was 21% and they had AAA rated credit back then. Gone are the days of 4% home loans. Inflation due to higher taxes will see to that.

I'm sure there's more I've forgotten. So feel free to add to the list. And welcome to the United Socialist States of America. Leave your money in the box to your right.

RIP United States of America

Wait, Samson! Are you sure you remembered to press one before you typed all that into English? :(
Hmm, how does one say "socialist" in Spanish? Ah, never mind, Google's got me covered: Bienvenido a los Estados Unidos Socialistas de Nuevo Mexico!

For those who don't desire to press 1 for English, here's this page in our soon to be new national language:
http://translate.google.com/translate?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.iguanadons.net%2FThe-Marxist-Revolution-241.html&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&sl=en&tl=es

Unless y'all think we should all be learning Russian, German, or perhaps even Kenyan instead....

Oh, hey Samson, how many of that 15-50 million illegals include all the Kenyans who'll be joining us in the land of opportunity now that they're fellow citizen managed a bloodless coup to become our new dictator?

       
I don't know if it works if I say "I'm sorry for your loss," since I did, after all, root for the man whose election you are disappointed by. But I hear you, and I sincerely hope that, going forward, we all find ways to put the country on a better path.

And if we do end up the United Socialist States of America, well, we promise that there will be no re-education camps.

I left my money in the No on Prop 8 box, by the way. It appears not to have done a whole lot of good there. So there's one to cheer you up a bit.

And a note re: the Supreme Court, the oldest members and hence the ones most likely to die or retire soon are Stevens and Ginsburg. The three youngest are Alito, Thomas, and Roberts. So while Obama will, I'm sure, be appointing liberal justices if he gets the chance, he will most likely be continuing the court's current makeup, not changing it. You only have to worry if Scalia has a stroke.

       
Thank you for your sympathies, Regina.

I very sincerely hope that you're right that there will be no re-education centers or concentration camps or other such facilities, but I'm not going to sit back and relax and count on you being right about it.

On that particular one, I'd have voted with you, but to Samson's pleasure, I don't get a vote out there. ;)

Good point, hopefully no ill-timed 'accidents' befall any of our younger Justices while Obama's in office either.

       
Re-education camps AKA modern respected universities.

Oh, the Kenyan influx hasn't been counted yet. They're not all here yet after all. Give them time. I'm sure they're on their way with their newly expedited entry visas.

But I hear you, and I sincerely hope that, going forward, we all find ways to put the country on a better path.


I tried. The other 52% of Americans thought I was nuts and thought Marxism was the better path. I sincerely hope we find out that they're wrong and people realize it.

Indeed. Otherwise a rather coincidental and equall ill-timed 'accident' will befall our new Messiah and the left will get the Second Civil War they've been scaremongering everyone into thinking will happen if they don't "set aside racism and vote for Obama".

Oh. I wonder if having an Arab-American president now will finally put an end to all this racial divisiveness since they can no longer claim the black man is being suppressed?

       
I was just thinking of how I'm a states' rights fan and how the united states of america, even before modern times, has totally destroyed any sovereignty that states demanded upon the creation of this union.


So I now propose we rename this country to reflect its new values.

The Socialist Republic of America.

Or SRA.

Then some day in the socialist future people can write about Obama's courageous speech demanding the western world to "tear down these walls" in Berlin. And like the USSR the United States of America will be only a cruel, brutal memory of a regime.

       

Oh. I wonder if having an Arab-American president now will finally put an end to all this racial divisiveness since they can no longer claim the black man is being suppressed?


Actually, a lot of people on both sides of the spectrum are hoping for that, in all seriousness.

       
And @ Retnur: I'm in my third year at a respected US university and I'm not a socialist yet!

       
I didn't say re-education camps work on everyone. If you're trying to say the propaganda there doesn't exist, then I guess they've changed a lot in 4 years since I was at one. ;)

       
Depends. What was the propaganda you got?

What she said, and for my own part I'm very tired of partisan bitterness, governmental and otherwise.

That said, I disagree with essentially everything in that initial post, which I may discuss anon, however, while I'm being disagreeable, I must disagree with:

Regina said:

I'm not really supposed to tell you all this, and do so on condition of anonymity, but there WILL be re-education camps. However, as befits modern leftism, you should find them reasonably agreeable. There will be kittens. Also cookies, and kool-aid. I recommend taking the kittens, but not drinking the kool-aid.

Regina said:

Speaking as a 7 year veteran of higher education, and thank you for that master's degree, it's that fourth year you've really got to watch out for. Although I suspect that in your case, classics is hardly full of raging socialists. While the Romans WERE into spreading the wealth around, it was usually more about spreading other folks' wealth to them. With pointy objects.

For my own part, history had less than you might think, although one does gain a healthy respect for the evils of imperialism, as well as the evils of reading 600 pages worth of dead white dudes per week, which I can assure you from personal experience leaves one scant room for the persuit of socialism, or much of anything else for that matter.

(will not mention the mind control rays. no.)

Indeed, but instead of the blue versus the gray this time it'll be the blue versus the red.. and those poor blues are going to fighting for a rather strangely split country judging from the election maps.. especially if each side is chosen by their precinct's votes rather than their state's electoral decision. We reds will certainly have the lion's share of the nation when we're done... I wonder how the blues will support their isolated pocket precincts, especially if after we win that civil war we require visas/passports and inoculations for admittance.. :P

I knew they'd have the drugged kool-aid and enforced kumbya camp fire sessions, but I had no idea they'd be using kittens too! Someone call the SPCA to save us! The horror! *gasp* (Can I at least bring my dogs with me, they'd have uses for the kittens....)

       
I would hate to live with the fear that you people posses. Must make it hard to get up out of bed each morning and iron your tin foil hat, cut out the secret messages from all the news papers and stick them to the wall, look outside the blacked out windows of your house for FBI brand ice cream vans, all before downing 27 cups of coffee to help you stay away because you know if you fall asleep that they will implant some mind control device into your body, or give your 27 cats a probing and steal your hard fought pile of plastic shopping bags.

Diplomacy first, is a good policy, build their trust and faith to find a unified solution to the problem. As you said, Without setting any preconditions. There is always the option to go to war against them, its just not the first and only option of former president bush.

This is also the reason why all the work to try and find a solution to the Palestinian and Israeli issues have failed. bush sent mixed messages, diplomacy in one place, hate and war in others, and threats of wars to others still. Have a unified message across the board and there will be inroads made in solving a lot of the issues in the middle east.

       
Yes. Kittens with mind-control rays. Their purring contains subliminal messages.

This should work.

I remember those television ads, the FCC never did catch on, did they? "Meow, meow, meow.. meow, meow, meow.. meow, meow, meow.."

While that certainly does sound mildly ironic, what I'm seeing is an image that says (even if I click on the link you provided in your second post) "Image has been replaced! If you would like to share our images, please copy the image to your server and host it from there."

       
But I AM on your server, Alsherok! Why, why must we fight? Why?

What's furtherly interesting is that I can see my image JUST FINE.

The internets are confusing. I blame Al Gore.

Sounds familiar. Seems to me Chamberlain tried that back in the 1930s with a man by the name of Adolph Hitler. Hitler happily obliged the diplomacy and used that time to build Germany's army up to a point where he could conquer most of Europe. All while the peaceniks of their time continued to attempt to appease him.

At some point you need to realize that not everyone can be negotiated with. Iran is such a place. Ahmadinejad has made it very clear his goal is nothing short of the total destruction of Israel. At least to his credit, he's not hiding it the way Hitler was. You cannot negotiate with evil dictators. The only solution is their quick and hopefully quite painful death.

BTW, I'll let you in on a little secret. Iran today is Carter's fault for having told the Shaw where to stick it and leaving him to twist in the wind while the Islamic mullahs took the place over. By the time Reagan took office it was too late to do anything other than threaten to carpet bomb the entire country if our hostages weren't released.

       
Oh, and on the subject of image bans, yes, it's probably rather dumb that Apache handles things that way. If I could figure out how to set the referrer check up to ignore the IP address of the server then alot of problems like this would go away.

And the difference here is that Germany was an economic and manufacturing power house and was in a position to be able do do such things. Iran on the other hand is a piss ant state that is nothing economically or militarily and is unable to amass anything more than spit wads and sling shots.

They are a country that is wanting to provide electricity for their people, within that there are a lot of options and a lot of room for negotiations. The issue of them wanting nukes is nothing more than fear mongering, if anyone wants nukes and the materials to build them there is plenty of that stuff floating about and unprotected in former Soviet states.

And while Iran talks big on Israel, once there is a reasonable solution to the Palestinian issue Iran will back down on its tough guy stance, as all they are doing is backing up their Arab brothers who they see are being injustly treated by Israel and there can be no doubt that Israel has not been making things easy for anyone in these regards. What they need is a more moderate government and then things might actually shift in the direction of good.

The problem with your logic, or apparently the total lack thereof, is that where nuclear weapons are concerned one's country doesn't need to be anything more than a piss ant state in order to wield terrible destructive power in a reckless manner. And even then, you are vastly underestimating the ability of Iran. Iraq made the same mistake back in 1980 under Saddam Hussein.

They are a country that is wanting to provide electricity for their people


They have more than enough petroleum reserves to handle this need without nuclear energy. The entire issue of peaceful generation is a crock, you don't need 6,000 centrifuges for that.

And while Iran talks big on Israel, once there is a reasonable solution to the Palestinian issue Iran will back down on its tough guy stance


Chamberlain though the same thing about Hitler and Poland all while trying to reach a similar so-called reasonable solution to the Czechoslovakia situation.

Israel needs to do what they should have done 2 years ago. Fly in and bomb Iran's nuclear installations. But they made the fatal mistake of listening to Bush and showing "restraint" in the matter. Obama will simply drop the pretense and tell them to surrender outright. To which my response as Israel would be a great big "FUCK YOU OBAMA".

       
12. The most disturbing proposal is Obama's civilian national security force.

http://www.americanthinker.com/2008/07/obamas_civilian_national_secur.html

"We should have a civilian corps that is as effective in what they do as our military is in what it does, and we don't have that right now" - Obama

What the hell is that? Just what are they going to do?

       
“We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”
- Barack Obama, July 2008 at a speech in Colorado.

Um.... yeah. I'll tell you what this reeks of. Gestapo. Only a Gestapo that's given actual armed power instead of phantom power like the one Hitler had. No surprise that this got buried so deeply and never came up again. Also makes you wonder how he plans to pay for it. And if he means as powerful and well-funded as our current military, or as powerful and not-so-well funded as the one Barney Frank wants to decimate it into.

       
Well you can get a glimpse into the kind of hatred and division Obama is planning to support by his selection of Rahm Emanuel as his Chief of Staff. There isn't a more despicable, partisan, hateful person on the face of this Earth than Rahm Emanuel. So much for the tolerant and inclusive Obama administration he promised us. Another campaign lie.
