The intent is now clear. The world does view us differently. “The low-IQ US president and his country’s Secretary of State John Kerry speak of the effectiveness of ‘the US options on the table’ on Iran while this phrase is mocked at and has become a joke among the Iranian nation, especially the children,” Iranian General Masoud Jazayeri said. Putin told Obama no Russian troops were in Ukraine while in fact 16,000 Russian troops were there. Syrian President Assad said he would have all chemical weapons removed from Syria in 30 days. That was months ago and according to reports; no chemical weapons have been removed. We are viewed differently. We are viewed as a joke.
As for the fundamental transformation, this is also becoming clearer. We resembled in January of 2009 a free society with a quasi-capitalistic economy. Today we are a country with arbitrary law resembling a totalitarian state ruled by a quasi-dictator who is apparently aspiring to become dictator. Our economy is centrally controlled with the medical industry and financial industry not even resembling capitalism.
Now Obama has proposed a budget for 2015 knowing it will never even be considered by the Senate. He has had budgets voted on by the by the Senate and not receiving one positive vote. This is the farce the budget process has become. Obama unveiled a $3.9 trillion budget plan for 2015 that drops earlier promises to cut future Social Security benefits and it seeks new money for infrastructure, education and jobs training. This is where we are heading. Remember, we have had trillion dollar deficits over the last several years.
-- By 2024, the total national debt would rise from $17.4 trillion to nearly $25 trillion. It was approximately $10 trillion in January of 2009.
-- By 2020, U.S. taxpayers would be paying more in interest on the debt than they would on the entire Defense budget.
-- By 2017, those interest payments would be bigger than the budget for Medicaid.
Obviously this is not sustainable especially when consider these numbers will only be increased as interest rates increase. Interest rates are now at historical lows.
The fundamental transformation we were promised is also clearer. We will be fundamentally transformed to a third rate power so we will no longer be viewed as a nation who exploits other nations based on Karl Marx’s definition of exploitation. Exploitation, according to Marx, is when a person builds a business and obtains more than others. These evil people than hire others to work at that business and they expect the worker to perform a function for a wage. The perfect world according to Marx, Obama and the Marxist/Progressives is when the state owns all productive means, all people can work when, where and how they wish, all people will receive based on needs and not production and all people conform to the wishes and ideals of the Marxist philosophy. All nations will be the same, borders will become meaningless and national powers like the United States was will no longer exist.
The results are as we have seen; the United States is a joke internationally and is becoming a third world country economically.
