See what a member of Obama's administration had to say about democracy recently...
September was a banner month for totalitarians who proudly call themselves “democrats”. Make no mistake… democracy in America is under full attack by the left, led by the Democrat Party and heralded by what we used to call the mainstream media.
EXHIBIT “A”: On September 14, Peter Orsag, former director of the OMB under the Obama regime wrote an article for The New Republic entitled “Too Much of a Good Thing; Why We Need Less Democracy”. The first paragraph contains this paragraph which is the premise of his whole piece.
“During my recent stint in the Obama administration as director of the Office of Management and Budget, it was clear to me that the country’s political polarization was growing worse—harming Washington’s ability to do the basic, necessary work of governing. If you need confirmation of this, look no further than the recent debt-limit debacle, which clearly showed that we are becoming two nations governed by a single Congress—and that paralyzing gridlock is the result”.
“So what to do? To solve the serious problems facing our country, we need to minimize the harm from legislative inertia by relying more on automatic policies and depoliticized commissions for certain policy decisions. In other words, radical as it sounds, we need to counter the gridlock of our political institutions by making them a bit less democratic”. Read the whole article here.
Excuse me, Pete. We “the governed” might have a thing or two to say about that.
EXHIBIT “B”: On September 27, North Carolina Governor Bev Purdue made the following statements to a Cary, N.C. Rotary event:
“I think we ought to suspend, perhaps, elections for Congress for two years and just tell them we won’t hold it against them, whatever decisions they make, to just let them help this country recover,” Perdue said at a rotary club event in Cary, N.C., according to theRaleigh News & Observer. “I really hope that someone can agree with me on that.”
Perdue said she thinks that temporarily halting elections would allow members of Congress to focus on the economy. “You have to have more ability from Congress, I think, to work together and to get over the partisan bickering and focus on fixing things,” Perdue said. Read the whole article here.
The amazing thing is that Orzag and Perdue are so open and up front about their assault on democracy. Note the deafening silence from the perfidious press. This is what we, as theoretically free people, are up against. The 2012 Election may be the last chance that we have to turn back the tide of tyranny that is washing over this country.
P.S. That’s not a pic of Jerry Garcia.
