For those who worry that Sarah Palin is going to become the next dictator of the United States or will lead the fascist yahoos of the Republican Party and the Religious Right to create something akin to the society of "The Handmaid's Tale," I really would not be too concerned.
As we look at the upcoming Obama administration, it will do us well to remember that the main power groups of the Democratic Party which will call the shots for at least the next four years, and more likely the next 40, include the following: Labor unions, environmentalists, the American Trial Lawyers Association, the hardcore Religious Left, and ACORN. All of these groups are united in their visceral hatred for free markets and for personal liberty in general (except in areas of sexual freedom and in the "freedom" to kill unborn children).
These groups will be unchecked in their Grand Vision that they intend to impose on the rest of us. Not only will Obama and Congress make sure that the Big Three automakers survive in some form, but their political allies will make sure that the other auto plants in this country owned by foreign subsidiaries are smashed beyond recognition.Al Gore wants to destroy most of the current productive capabilities of electricity and also require us to drive electric cars, despite the fact that the laws of science (not to mention the laws of economics) tell us that his Grand Plan is unattainable.
Obama says that one of his first executive orders will be to declare carbon dioxide to be a "dangerous pollutant," which means all people are "dangerous polluters." Sooner or later, this government will force all of us to purchase "carbon credits" or face criminal consequences for polluting the earth with our exhaling.
The Obama campaign sought to have criminal charges filed against people who they claimed ran "false" television advertisements" against him. Congress plans to bring back the Fairness Doctrine, and I am sure that there will be other sanctions, criminal and otherwise, against dissenters.
Perhaps the Obama State will recall troops fighting abroad, and I hope that is the case. However, people with this kind of Grand Vision are not going to be satisfied if just Americans are doing their part to stop the supposed march to disaster through Global Warming. If the Chinese and others refuse to stop building those Satanic coal-burning electric generation stations, then I would not be surprised to see a "Green" retaliation against such environmental miscreants.
No, by the time this upcoming hard-left government is through with us, Sarah Palin will not be a threat. In fact, whatever it was that she was espousing will look pretty good compared to what we are about to have imposed upon us. But, don't fear; there will be no U.S. Government led by Sarah Palin.
