A vision of all-controlling government
Dear Reader’s SOTU speech is suggestive that the man and his staff live in an alternate reality where government can become all things to all peoples at all times.
Basic economic principles, the laws of physics, and the history of man count for nothing, melting in the face of the fiery rhetoric of Dear Reader, his legion of speech writers, and a seven-nation army of regulators.
Need money for college? Government. A job? Government. Health care? Government. Windmills, electric cars, and high-speed rail? government. Retirement? Government. Corporate profits too high? Government. Child care problem? Government. Advertisements on television too loud? Government. Someone hurting your feelings? Government.
And all Government asks in return for doing these things for you? Your freedom and your money: you will be assimilated.
So are the brain-dead-on-arrival positions Barry’s staked out his SOTU and inaugural speeches his vision for our country, his perfect endstate, or are they merely bargaining positions that he’ll negotiate on in order to get something which might actually benefit America and our citizens?
We’re getting the leadership we voted for.
