At this point, it seems like Barack Obama’s worshipers will cheer at anything he says. Imagine him speaking at one of his daily campaign rallies and saying the following:
What we need now is to take a good long look at slavery. We know many folks don’t want a job, but that bums the rest of us out. When we bring back slavery, everybody will be accounted for. Everybody will have a job and be secure in the knowledge that they are contributing to the greater good of the state. Our slaves would be well-fed and have great healthcare and birth control devices. They would be off every other Sunday and one full week in the summer plus all federal holidays. Now how does that sound?
The crowd would cheer, but Obama is just revving up:
Businesses should not be allowed to make more profit than a government council sets for them.
The rich should be put in prison and kept there until they give us what we want. We want all of what they have stolen from us!
We need to put the rich on trial for theft because we know that the only way to get rich in America is to steal from the poor. We know that the wealth of the poor puts gas in the tanks of the block-long limousines they are driven around in.
We even have to put the lackeys that work for the rich on trial for treason! They’re part of the problem! If they didn’t work for them, the rich would have to drive themselves, feed themselves, and clean their own houses.
Nobody in America should be allowed to own more than one car! Hell, you can’t drive two cars at the same time; so why should we allow the greedy insurance companies to get even richer by insuring a second and third car?
There are Americans who don’t have shoes, so why should the rich have more than one pair of shoes. The government, we the people of America, can decide who gets shoes and who doesn’t.
Hearing this, the crowd would go wild with throaty cheers!
And how about the auto industry? Why should we have so many car companies? We don’t need more than two car manufacturing companies, one to make cars for you and one to make cars for government commissars!
We don’t need a Congress, do we? I can make better decisions that help all Americans. I’ll make the choices for us so we can move on. Why do we have to have endless months and years of negotiating with idiot conservatives when we know that at the end of the day, the American people only want progressive solutions anyway?
Why can’t you have a life of unemployment benefits? Think of the boost to our leisure industry when millions of Americans are free, really free to travel this great nation with an unemployment benefit card that would act like an ATM card! You would be able to roam this great nation in complete financial security!
After making these remarks, the cheers would become deafening and turn into a chant of “O-bam-a, O-bam-a, free stuff, free stuff! Ob-am-a!” He’d wave and climb into the back of his “block long” government limousine and return to the golf course.
Those who think this could never happening aren’t paying attention. If Obama read the Manhattan phone book, his greedy hoards would cheer as long as they thought he was offering them “free stuff.”
