Obama Won– Now What?
Here we are…as conservatives we have been dealt a great disappointment with the news that somehow, despite our best efforts as voters to show up at the polls, it was not enough to outnumber the people who think Obama is worth another term. Quite frankly I believe many of us are still reeling from the shock and are now in the trenches of utter anxiety of what this man will now be capable of doing for the next four years knowing he does not have to answer to the people after his term is over.
As I wrote in a previous article, one of the changes Obama will make will be in the Supreme Court. We have three (3) Justices who will be retiring quite possibly during his administration. Since Harry Reid made it clear prior to the election that the Democrats would not work with Romney or the Republicans, he and his party will most certainly feel empowered to make the changes in the Supreme Court that will lean towards their ideology. Who they will be looking at to replace the three sitting Justices will be an indication of how the rule of law will be decided for the next generation on. One candidate I believe we will see come forward by Obama will be the Attorney General for California, Kamala Harris. Harris has already expressed progressive decisions like not enforcing the immigration laws and that she is a believer of what Barack Obama stands for. Recently in an interview with the leftist website “The Root”, Harris expressed her support of Obama’s policies:
“As attorney general of the biggest state [in population] in the country, when I look at what we needed to do to defend the president’s groundbreaking reform of the health care system, the Affordable Care Act, we fought to defend its constitutionality. And why? Because this president pushed through what administrations for 100 years had literally tried to do … and failed … That is one of many examples of how he has been a true leader in some of the most difficult times our country has seen.”
In the Democratic Convention Harris was one of the speakers and expressed that a vote for Romney would be a vote to “roll back the rules” and hurt our environment and women’s rights of protection of their health care. Harris went on to say “when it comes to the housing crisis the choice between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney is clear”. Did Ms. Harris forget about Barney Frank and Chris Dodd or the others in her party that ignored the request by George Bush to reign in “Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac”? Or as other democrats do, does Ms. Harris forget her party even existed in majority during the last 2 years of Bush’s presidency and the first 2 years of Obama?
Another possible candidate for the Supreme Court would be the very liberal Diane Wood, who was appointed by Pres. Bill Clinton for the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals. One of the biggest concerns to know about Judge Wood is she believes in the importance of “expanded executive power”. Other names that have circled the wagons: Denise Jefferson Casper, J. Michelle Childs, Pam Karlan (with at least eight others)but one thing to remember is the next choice for Obama will more than likely be liberal leaning, female and black.
The next plan Obama will look to take advantage of is furthering his goal for a “single payer option” for healthcare. Barney Frank made a very telling statement when interviewed recently about a second Obama term and this would most certainly be on the top of the list for the Democrats to attempt.
Energy plan for Obama’s next four years will continue to wage a war on coal, deny drilling permits on federal land and more taxpayer money will be funneled to green energy companies who helped in his re-election success. Unions will also see more jobs in manufacturing, teaching and infrastructure in states that are friendly to them. You won’t see a lot of taxpayer funding helping employment in these areas in right to work states. Unions are now empowered because just like the green energy lobbyist, Trumpka and his cronies will now have four years of dominance to exploit.
Foreign policy will also see Obama taking more of a “lead from behind” approach and we will certainly see a continued rise in the Muslim Brotherhood both in Africa and the United States. Putin will get his wish granted and Obama will continue to downsize the power of the United States in nuclear warhead capabilities. Obama’s goal will be to bring our number of warheads to around 300. The tragedy behind the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi will play out in Congressional hearings, but like Fast and Furious, without Republican control of Congress we will see more executive orders from Obama protecting his administration. The media will continue to cover for Obama because in their minds they helped Obama to win re-election and 2016 will be in their sights for another Democrat as President and Clinton’s (Hillary) name will be the front runner.
The progressive ideology will also continue to grow and reach a power we have never witnessed. Policies Obama will implement will grow the entitlements even further and the Government will explode during his last term. The Republicans will continue to fight in the House but because they could not gain seats in the Senate, they will simply be promoted as they were the first four years as “extremists” and Obama will simply act with executive orders to bypass the House. Harry Reid will still remain as the Senate Leader and a budget will never be passed.
If what I have said so far sounds identical to what we have lived these last four years that is because it will be a repeat, like a bad remake of a horrible original movie.
However all is not lost!
What Obama and the progressives do not consider in this whole moment of celebration is the “power of the people” will begin to stir. That’s right; I predict we will see an uprising with the American people who see Obama’s final term as the end of America as we know it. You will not see a civil war because the American people will once again come together in peaceful assembly as the even bigger and better Tea Party. There will be rallies, demonstrations, and I even predict we will also see even more Conservative TV.
The rise of the social media will be with the conservative and libertarians and they will outnumber the progressive cable stations. You will also see even more talk radio power on the airways and an even bigger movement streaming live on the internet despite Obama’s attempts to take over. Conservative women will be the largest group driving this effort and I truly believe Politichicks.tv will lead in this movement. All is not lost when you have the power of intelligent conservative women standing up for the challenge. Sarah Palin was just the beginning and “mama grizzlies” will come out in numbers greater than the women who stepped forward and saved the American industry during wartime.
Finally, you will also see the American people move even closer to their faith. Families will begin to once again see the value of faith and freedom and they will come together at the dinner table, remembering when the simpler times in life were the happiest. Because so many will still see struggles economically during the next four years, we will also see life go back to the basics and the power of prayer and our faith is what will ultimately carry our country through.
Let us all begin now by bowing our heads and praying for each other and for strength for the next big movement!
