It’s obvious that classic American liberalism is dead. It has morphed into a radical leftism which has found its standard bearer in Barack Hussein Obama, a rigid, cold-blooded leftist whose end-game is the complete dominance of American politics by a single political party. This is to be achieved using classic Socialist* tactics: making a majority of citizens dependent upon the state, either through jobs (shuffling paper, torturing fellow citizens with endless rules and regulations) or through welfare (redefined as a human right).
The revelations of political repression by the IRS against Conservatives should send chills up the spines of every American. For this is how tyrannies gain traction.
And under Obamacare, the IRS will have even more power.
*Socialist: noun \ˈsō-sh(ə-)list\— a Communist who has not yet picked up an AK47.

It Can’t Happen Here
[Not only can it happen here. It is happening here. People who have lived in “those other places” are experiencing déjà vu and we need to undo the damage done.—Joe]
Even that Big-State Nardle-Gargler, Piers Morgan (sanctimonious twat that he is), can no longer deny it’s happening.
Slight disagreement: Did radical leftism somehow select Barack Obama as their standard-bearer, or did Barack Obama select himself to develop and lead radical leftism?
The difference is important. If the political movement selected BO, then we’re fighting a sizeable movement, difficult at best. OTOH, if BO developed and energized the movement, we are fighting but one man and his machine, a much easier task.
Just as conservatives rejected Ron Paul as ‘too extreme’, I suspect the ‘prog/lib’ crowd would reject BO as ‘too extreme’ if they weren’t already that far left to begin with.
No…IMHO BO was the choice of the party, because what he’s doing is EXACTLY what they wanted.
Definitely. This is MUCH bigger than one man, or than one man and a few communist cronies. It’s much bigger than one political party too.
Common; this has been cooking for over 100 years.
I agree with the quote, but Jeeze. There’s that “revelation” stuff again, and “chills up the spine”. All of that indicates a sense of newness in all this, or a new awareness of it. OK. Late is better than never i guess, so Welcome to the party that started before your grandparents were born.
