Obamocracy Is Imminent
May 18, 2011
People keep asking me some of the same questions. I mean different people are asking basically the same questions. Here are some of them and I hope they resonate with you.
First of all, those of you who flatter me by asking me why I don’t do more than two hours of the Bob Grant Radio Show do not understand a simple fact of life. Those of us who are behind the microphone and get all the attention and publicity are employees. It is no different than any other employee in any other business. Employees in any industry cannot dictate policy. If I could, I would certainly be doing things differently. Nevertheless, it is gratifying that so many of you do want more of my program. However, it is not going to happen.
Another question I hear often is about our political system. The founders of this once great Republic created a sublime but challenging Republic. Notice, I say Republic, not democracy. Read your history. Go back to the late 18th century when the United States of America was born. You will not find the word democracy, but you will find the word Republic. I am sure most of you have heard the true story of a verbal exchange between one of our great Founding Fathers by the name of Benjamin Franklin. Dr. Franklin was leaving Constitution Hall in Philadelphia after long hours of debating what should be done. A citizen called out, “Dr. Franklin, what kind of government have you given us?” Franklin responded with these words, “A Republic, Madam, if you can keep it!” Notice two things about the sage’s response. Number one he did not say a democracy; he said a Republic. And he added something that frightens me each time I hear or read it: “IF YOU CAN KEEP IT!”
Do you know who our second president was? Don’t be offended by the question. There is a large percentage of Americans who don’t know the name of our first president. The answer to the question I just posed is John Adams. Only recently a great historian wrote a splendid book about Adams, whose son, by the way, became our sixth president: John Quincy Adams. In any event, President Adams warned against the danger of so-called democracy. He said history taught him that any time democracy was tried it degenerated into mobocracy.
That is what has happened here in the once beautiful United States of America. Of course, it doesn’t happen overnight but it is happening right now, day by day. I read an editorial from a newspaper published in Prague, Czech Republic. The editorial says they don’t feel concern because Obama himself upsets them. They are horrified that the American people could elect such an unfit person whose only political gift is that he is cunning, clever and ruthless. He will demonstrate these tools as the campaign goes on and on and on.
The 2012 campaign has only just begun. On the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November 2012, when Barack Obama is re-elected to a second term because the Republicans were too busy fighting amongst themselves, and the public was too brainwashed by the media and Hollywood, you will know that it truly is over. OBAMOCRACY IS HERE and America will never be the same. You had better hide your history books before Obama’s mob burns them!
