Barack Obama’s Hundred Year Fabian March

To become president, Obama took a sacred oath to defend and protect the Constitution of the United States of America. Surely, his oath would seem to restrict the fundamental changes that he advocates.
So what has transpired during Obama’s first term. From my perspective, it appears that Obama has taken our nation in the direction of Fabian Socialism and even de facto Fabian Communism. Obama has established an entitlement society – and even an entitlement mentality amongst many of our citizens. This is unprecedented in America’s history.  Obama is transforming our nation from a free, self-reliant, work-ethic, free-enterprise nation, to one where a significant proportion of our people are looking for government handouts – for government to take care of them – for De Facto Socialism.
According to research by the Pennsylvania Department of Public Welfare, 109.3 million Americans are now working to support 66.1 million welfare recipients and 21.2 million government employed persons. Clearly, these are unsustainable demographics. 109.3 million people cannot support themselves and 87.3 million others.
Like many nations in Europe who have succumbed to Fabian Socialistic forms of government, and are financially insolvent, the Obama administration is taking America in the same direction. A high percentage of the nation’s electorate are attracted by Obama’s promise of more government goodies, and have voted him another four year term.
Frankly, without a significant change in Obama’s de facto Fabian Philosophy and Socialist agenda, America appears destined to succumb to the hundred year march of the Fabians. The traditional American-Way appears to be doomed. Despite its unprecedented success – based on individual responsibility, the work ethic, and Constitutional law, our nation is, indeed, being fundamentally transformed into a European style, Fabian-Communist nation. It’s taken over 100 years – but they have apparently succeeded despite the fact that they are a minority.
It’s reported that 30 million traditional Conservatives stayed home on election day and that fewer votes were cast for Gov. Mitt Romney than for Sen. John McCain in 2008 – thus giving the President his 2012 election victory [Editor: National Review has reported that final counts indicate Romney, in fact, did receive more votes than John McCain did in 2008]. Fortunately, those who did vote protected the Republican majority in the House Of Representatives – providing some defense for traditional American values.
How this transformation plays out via Obama’s Chicago-style administration remains to be seen.  However, Obama appears to be even more aggressive and unwilling to compromise following his success at the polls. To stop him, traditional Americans and inactive Conservatives must speak out – loudly – boldly – proactively – via phone, fax, email and demonstration – to stop Obama’s march toward de facto Fabian Communism.
