Today I was thinking about Orwell's quote: "People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf."
And then I looked the news and realized that Obama is systematically dismantling the system of rough men that has enabled us to sleep peaceably at night. He's gripping and grinning with our enemies around the world while attacking the people who have been keeping us safe all these years.
Then I coupled that with the way Obama used the financial crisis to incite panic and convince people that we had to enact his policies RIGHT NOW to avoid certain disaster.
After all, Rahm Emmanuel said "Never let a serious crisis go to waste."
That's when it hit me -- the thought that once Obama has dismantled what has kept us safe for the past 8 years, we'll be open to another major attack.
If that were to happen and Obama had a national crisis that whipped the population into a fury of emotion and fear, what changes do you think he'd enact under the guise of making us safe? What kind of power would a fearful population hand him?
