I may not be the world’s leading expert on the root causes of the American revolution, but with the multiple scandals spreading out from the White House like tentacles, one has to wonder at the similarities with Obama’s governing style and that of George III back in the 1760’s and 1770’s.
Both men seem to believe that governance is all about issuing directives and expecting them to be obeyed without question or pushback. Disagreement is not tolerated. Those who disagree are not merely people with reasoned objections, but enemies, traitors, subversives, and so are deserving of punishment.
On a happier note, though, one can always hope that the repetition of history doesn’t stop there. Keep in mind, George III is remembered as the King Who Lost America. He lost it for England, of course, but perhaps, in the not too distant future, Barack Obama will be remembered as the President Who Lost America, with the difference being that he will lose it for those who want to destroy our freedom (just like old George) and turn us into a totalitarian state (again just like old George). Those who desire those things, for those who haven’t been paying attention are the Progressives of the Democrat Party, plus those few Republicans who serve as useful idiots who enable them.
George III failed, and Obama seems to be following the same well worn path. Yet George III resorted to armed force to impose his will, and one has to wonder if Obama will try the same thing.
Far fetched? Then why would Homeland Security need enough ammunition to shoot every single American three times over? Why is limiting gun ownership such a priority? Why are the details of the membership of people in the Tea Parties of such importance to the Obama administration that he is willing to use the second most powerful, the most hated and the most feared organ of government — the IRS — as his personal SS Storm Troopers?
As a pure coincidence, the man who bankrolled Obama’s attempt to resurrect the totalitarian dreams of George III is also named George — George Soros.
