Our Venom Is Our Vote
These comments are all true and Great by Mr. Krauthammer. Thank You Sir!
It's better to be paralyzed from the neck down, than to be paralyzed
from the neck up...
Dr. Charles Krauthammer
Dr. Krauthammer is on Fox News. He is an M.D. and a lawyer and is
paralyzed from the neck down. A friend went to hear Charles
Krauthammer. He listened with 25 others in a closed room. What he
says here, is NOT 2nd-hand but 1st. The ramifications are staggering
for us, our children and their children.
Last Monday was a profound evening, Dr. Charles Krauthammer spoke to
the Center for the American Experiment. He is a brilliant
intellectual, seasoned & articulate. He is forthright and careful in
his analysis, and never resorts to emotions or personal insults. He is
NOT a fear monger nor an extremist in his comments and views. He is a
fiscal conservative, and has received a Pulitzer Prize for writing. He
is a frequent contributor to Fox News and writes weekly for the
The entire room was held spellbound during his talk. I have summarized
his comments, as we are living in uncharted waters economically and
Even 2 Dems at my table agreed with everything he said! If you feel
like forwarding this to those who are open minded and have not drunk
the Kool-Aid, feel free.
Summary of his comments:
1. Mr. Obama is a very intellectual, charming individual. He is not
to be underestimated. He is a cool customer who doesn't show his
emotions. It's very hard to know what's behind the mask. The taking
down of the Clinton dynasty was an amazing accomplishment. The
Clintons still do not understand what hit them. Obama was in the
perfect place at the perfect time.
2. Obama has political skills comparable to Reagan and Clinton. He
has a way of making you think he's on your side, agreeing with your
position, while doing the opposite. Pay no attention to what he SAYS;
rather, watch what he DOES!
3. Obama has a ruthless quest for power. He did not come to
Washington to make something out of himself, but rather to change
everything, including dismantling capitalism. He can't be
straightforward on his ambitions, as the public would not go along.
He has a heavy hand, and wants to level the playing field with income
redistribution and punishment to the achievers of society. He would
like to model the USA to Great Britain or Canada .
4. His three main goals are to control ENERGY, PUBLIC EDUCATION, and
NATIONAL HEALTHCARE by the Federal government. He doesn't care about
the auto or financial services industries, but got them as an early
bonus. The cap and trade will add costs to everything and stifle
growth. Paying for FREE college education is his goal. Most scary is
his healthcare program, because if you make it FREE and add 46,000,000
people to a Medicare-type single-payer system, the costs will go
through the roof. The only way to control costs is with massive
RATIONING of services, like in Canada . God forbid!
5. He has surrounded himself with mostly far-left academic types. No
one around him has ever even run a candy store. But they are going to
try and run the auto, financial, banking and other industries. This
obviously can't work in the long run. Obama is not a socialist; rather
he's a far-left secular progressive bent on nothing short of
revolution. He ran as a moderate, but will govern from the hard left.
Again, watch what he does, not what he says.
6. Obama doesn't really see himself as President of the United States ,
but more as a ruler over the world. He sees himself above it all,
trying to orchestrate & coordinate various countries and their agendas..
He sees moral equivalency in all cultures. His apology tour in
Germany and England was a prime example of how he sees America , as an
imperialist nation that has been arrogant, rather than a great noble
nation that has at times made errors. This is the first President ever
who has chastised our allies and appeased our enemies!
7. He is now handing out goodies. He hopes that the bill (and pain)
will not come due until after he is reelected in 2012. He would like
to blame all problems on Bush from the past, and hopefully his
successor in the future. He has a huge ego, and Dr. Krauthammer
believes he is a narcissist.
8. Republicans are in the wilderness for a while, but will emerge
strong. Republicans are pining for another Reagan, but there will
never be another like him. Krauthammer believes Mitt Romney, Tim
Pawlenty & Bobby Jindahl (except for his terrible speech in February)
are the future of the party. Newt Gingrich is brilliant, but has
baggage.. Sarah Palin is sincere and intelligent, but needs to really
be seriously boning up on facts and info if she is to be a serious
candidate in the future.. We need to return to the party of lower
taxes, smaller government, personal responsibility, strong national
defense, and state's rights.
9. The current level of spending is irresponsible and outrageous. We
are spending trillions that we don't have. This could lead to
hyperinflation, depression or worse. No country has ever spent
themselves into prosperity. The media is giving Obama, Reid and Pelosi
a pass because they love their agenda. But eventually the bill will
come due and people will realize the huge bailouts didn't work, nor
will the stimulus package. These were trillion-dollar payoffs to
Obama's allies, unions and the Congress to placate the left, so he can
get support for #4 above.
10. The election was over in mid-September when Lehman brothers failed,
fear and panic swept in, we had an unpopular President, and the war was
grinding on indefinitely without a clear outcome. The people are in
pain, and the mantra of change caused people to act emotionally. Any
Dem would have won this election; it was surprising it was as close as
11. In 2012, if the unemployment rate is over 10%, Republicans will be
swept back into power. If it's under 8%, the Dems continue to roll. If
it's between 8-10%, it will be a dogfight. It will all be about the
economy. I hope this gets you really thinking about what's happening in
Washington and Congress. There is a left-wing revolution going on,
according to Krauthammer, and he encourages us to keep the faith and
join the loyal resistance. The work will be hard, but we're right on
most issues and can reclaim our country, before it's far too late.
Do yourself a long term favor, send this to all who will listen to an
intelligent assessment of the big picture. All our futures and
children's futures depend on our good understanding of what is really
going on in DC, and our action pursuant to that understanding!! It
really IS up to each of us to take individual action!! Start with
educating your friends and neighbors!!!
