In Today’s Washington Post, George Will discusses the basic totalitarianistic behavior of the Obama Administration, e.g.:
But the Service Employees International Union collects nearly $5 million a month from 223,000 caregivers who are members. And the Obama administration has told California that unless the $74 million in cuts are rescinded, it will deny the state $6.8 billion in stimulus money.
Such a federal ukase (the word derives from czarist Russia; how appropriate) to a state legislature is a sign of the administration’s dependency agenda — maximizing the number of people and institutions dependent on the federal government. For the first time, neither sales nor property nor income taxes are the largest source of money for state and local governments. The federal government is.
The SEIU says the cuts violate contracts negotiated with counties. California officials say the state required the contracts to contain clauses allowing pay to be reduced if state funding is.
Anyway, the Obama administration, judging by its cavalier disregard of contracts between Chrysler and some of the lenders it sought money from, thinks contracts are written on water. The administration proposes that Chrysler’s secured creditors get 28 cents per dollar on the $7 billion owed to them but that the United Auto Workers union get 43 cents per dollar on its $11 billion in claims — and 55 percent of the company. This, even though the secured creditors’ contracts supposedly guaranteed them better standing than the union.
the emphasis is mine.
Gee George. Just now getting it, eh?
Even though it is never taught in the public “education” system, or (heaven forbid ) mentioned in the news media, there is this little thing called the 10th Amendment to the American Constitution. It reads:
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
Nothing Obama is doing is delegated to the United States by the Constitution.
We no longer live in the United States of America. We live in the country controlled by the National Socialist Party of America, just like what happened (or is happening) in Germany, Russia, China, Cuba, Cambodia, Zimbabwe, Uganda, Venezuela, etc.
There is no moral or ethical difference between Obama and the rulers of those countries. He just hasn’t started the show trials, gulags, or mass murders – yet.
