Let's Get Alinsky on Obama With Respect to Third World

Slubs just posted about this. But I really want to talk about it too.

I'm actually glad Obama said we're becoming a Third World country, because this gives us the license to use this line like crazy. And it will work for us.

A couple of days ago I admitted maybe Obama does have a vision for the future, but that vision is Mexico. It just seems to me that he is taking this country down the road to failed third-world socialist quasi-democracies, with hyperinflation and defaults and bailouts and seizing of industries and so on.

And I don't think that's just me, or conservatives. I think that basic idea, that Obama is changing the country from an exceptional country, which has been prosperous, good, and strong, into one of the dismally ordinary countries wherein the government exists chiefly to write checks to retirees and pensioners and the poor and default every seven years when it can't pay the bills.

Me? I would use this constantly against Obama. I think it preys upon public fears, which would often be called a bad thing, except in this case I think those fears are not only justified but required if America is to right itself.

And he gave us license to say what we actually think without politically-correct penalties. No one can demagogue us for making "racist" attacks about Africa or Mexico or whatever. This guy said it first.

As they say in law, "you opened the door."

You want to talk about third world countries? Which country has previously remained rich, hard-working, virtuous, vital, and free, and which sorts of countries have become poor, idle, cynical, sclerotic and feudal, and which type of country is Obama pushing us towards?

Since you brought it up, Pal -- you're turning this once-great nation into a goddamned unstable Third World hellhole.

Thanks for introducing the topic. I've been meaning to mention this.
