Gwyneth Paltrow: Fan of Dictatorships

Posted by Troy on 10th October 2014 in Current Events, Political

Gwyneth Paltrow held a fundraiser with Obama as the honored guest.  During it, she said, “Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could give him the power to pass what needed to be passed?”

Of course, he is the honored guest, and she is doing a benefit for him.  As such, it is expected that she is going to kiss butt a little bit.  However, this statement is indicative of the stance of the Left.  They LOVE dictators.  They LOVE totalitarian governments.  Think about it.  What they are really admitting is that they cannot convince enough people their ideas are good enough.  As such, they should have their ideas put into law anyway.  After all, it is for our own good.  Surely, we will see the benefit one day.

Just look at how Obamacare was passed.  They bent the rules all to hell to pass it illegally.  Sixty percent of the country didn’t want it.  Democrats voted for it even though their constituents were up in arms about it.  And what do they say about it?  That we will love it once we see how great it is.  Of course, the Democrats keeps delaying all these great parts.  Why?  Because, once they hit, there will be great economic turmoil, and we will HATE it, and we will demand that it be repealed.  Of course, then they will claim that it is way too late for that…

Long Live the Constitution!

Consolidation

Posted by Troy on 26th January 2011 in Political

One thing Obama discussed in his 2011 State of the Union address that worries me is Consolidation of power inside the government.  Now, there are two possible outcomes from the consolidation of powers.  The possible good outcome is that they are able to consolidate powers, reduce departments, cut federal jobs, streamline procedures, and reduce duplication of duties and costs.  What could also happen is that it ends up creating federal departments which are so powerful they can rule by executive fiat.  They are already trying to expand the powers of the EPA and other departments to circumvent the Constitution and rob people of their rights.  If we make them larger and more powerful, this aim will be easier to achieve.
