The worst-case scenario is the election of Obama and a filibuster-proof Senate.
The result would be an orgy of ‘activism’ that would make the interventionism of the New Deal seem pale by comparison.
Some delaying actions might be fought in courts in the style that was used against elements of the New Deal. Court packing could be a problem.
We would see a drastic cut in our military. Those defense firm lobbyists who were certain that Obama was a patriot would belatedly learn that to Obama and friends, defense spending was seen only as pork, money best spent on programs where termination would come sometime in the early production stage. Building implements to protect the Nation never was a matter to be considered.
A weaker military would encourage terrorist adventurism all over the globe.
A Congressional counterattack in 2010 would be very difficult. A new ‘fairness doctrine’ would stifle free speech and a host of new ‘entitlements’ would create a broader base of political dependency.
Obama is not Jimmy Carter.
The next few days may be our last chance to preserve Liberty as we know it rather than the ‘selective civil libertarianism’ of the ACLU.
