Great art work from Out Of Order blog. There’s more if you click on the pic.“We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set, “We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded.”– Candidate Barack Obama July 2008
President Obama has enlarged and shaped the missions of agencies across the federal government to his own purposes, in pursuit of the “fundamental change” he promised voters. The resulting agency creep is creeping me out.
Totalitarians have a history of recasting representative governments into reflections of their own personal madness. Whether in the case of Communists, Fascists, or modern liberals, day-to-day government is retooled into an incarnation of their dear leader’s obsessions and justified by a vain and unsupportable assertion of higher intelligence.
This time is no different, as is demonstrated by the multiple cases of agency creep we are witnessing in the executive branch. We have recently been treated to internationalist game wardens, eco-warrior accountants, interfaith astronauts, and politicking professors.
Go read the piece. The comments are interesting as well.
The man threatens States, industry and the people at all levels. He demands air time on all the networks ad nauseum to lecture and scold with ever increasing frequency.
The man has dictatorial instincts. I believe that he is insane.
