Here I simply want to add an appreciative word regarding Barack Obama. Our President has told us that he has a gift, and he is undoubtedly right. But he misconceives the nature of his gift. He thinks that his skills in oratory will enable him to fool all of the people all of the time. In his Presidential campaign, he did wonders - hinting at radical intentions while speaking always in a moderate tone. And thanks to the blunders of George W. Bush in office and to the ineptitude of John McCain, who had made a career of betraying his own side, Obama managed to win.

Soon, however, the Democratic Party will be reminded that, in German, "Gift" is a word for poison. For one cannot fool the American people for long, and the real effect of the effort made by Obama and by figures such as Rahm Emanuel will be to unmask the Democratic Party as a conspiracy on the part of a would-be aristocracy of do-gooders hostile to very idea of self-government in the United States.

We should be grateful to Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and Rahm Emanuel. For, in their audacity, they have done what their predecessors feared to do; and, in the process, they have made the tyrannical propensities inherent within the progressive impulse visible to anyone who cares to take notice. What Franklin Delano Roosevelt falsely charged in 1936 is visibly true today. "A small group" is intent on concentrating "into their own hands an almost complete control over other people's property, other people's money, other people's labor - other people's lives."
"A small group," indeed, who wish nothing more than to rule, RULE the American citizens. I think, however, that once hit full in the face of the sinister secret plans, the backroom shenigans, the pay-offs to the unions and lobbyists, the American citizenry will put the hopeful rulers in their place, i.e., out on their asses. If, IF it's not already too late.

I think you're giving them way too much credit. Remember Will Rogers statement? "I belong to no organized party, I'm a Democrat".

All that group from Chicago wants is to rule the nation the way they want. They don't care about that Constitution that they continually skirt in what they do.

I think the key words from that link are: "The only question is whether the Republicans have the wit to take full advantage of the opportunity that Barack Obama has handed them."

I say key because if the Republicans don't trip over the great chance they have been given by that small group we can get rid of them in one year from now. That is, if it is not too late. The way they operate I will believe that all of us can vote in 2010 when I get my ballot at the polling place.

"Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and Rahm Emanuel." If we add the name Axelrod to that list I think that we find that control of the Dem party is complete and by progressives beside.

I see you are still hinting that you will not get to vote, please post any facts you may have that back up that wild speculation.
