These are some of the 2,500 Sallie Mae employees who were laid off in 2010 after the federal government took over the student loan industry. Tens of thousands of additional private sector employees also lost their jobs after the industry was nationalized.
These are the doctors who quit their profession after Obamacare prohibited them from building clinics, MRI imaging centers or hospitals. The nationalized health care bill controls one-sixth of the American economy; even if it is struck down by the Supreme Court this month, much of its damage will have already been done.
These are a few of the car dealers who were forced to close their dealerships after the federal government nationalized two auto companies using funds authorized only for bank bailouts. Abrogating bankruptcy law, the White House redistributed $26.5 billion of taxpayer funds to the auto unions, an apparent reward to their political supporters.
These are some of the laid-off construction workers at 25,000 non-unionized small businesses which were prohibited from bidding for 'Stimulus' projects and other projects by President Obama. The Association of Building Contractors says that this unprecedented step increases "construction costs between 10 percent and 20 percent and discriminate[s] against minorities, women and qualified construction workers who have traditionally been excluded from union membership."
These are a few of the 12.7 million unemployed workers, many of whom initially supported the $840 billion Stimulus program because President Obama and Congressional Democrats promised unemployment would not reach 8% if it were passed. Instead, three-and-a-half years later, official unemployment remains over 8 percent. The true unemployment figure (U-6) remains at 15 percent. The number of persons who were unemployed for more than six months remains over five million as of last month. And the labor-force participation rate continues to drop; it is now 63.6, "the lowest rate since 1981" according to CNN.
These are the "Black Panthers" who waved batons at voters during the 2008 election, "the most blatant form of voter intimidation" some civil rights experts had ever seen. Despite this, the Attorney General declined to -- or was ordered not to -- prosecute the case, raising the potential for similar incidents in successive elections. The current Justice Department is also embroiled in a series of other scandals, including its shipment of thousands of firearms to the Mexican drug cartels, its lawsuits against states attempting to enforce voter ID, and its legal actions against states attempting to enforce immigration law.
These are the leaders of two of America's staunchest historical allies -- the United Kingdom and Israel -- who have been shunned by this administration in an unprecedented series of diplomatic maneuevers. London's Daily Mail went so far as to report that, "Britain's special relationship with the U.S. is over." And the BBC recently reported that "Ties between Israel and the US are the 'worst in 35 years'."
These are the masterminds behind the attacks of September 11, 2001. They are known terrorists who were initially granted the rights of American citizens in order for the Obama administration to hold trials near Ground Zero in Manhattan. Only a subsequent firestorm of bipartisan opposition prevented that from occurring.
These are the "millions of 'green jobs'" President Obama pledged to create. Even though "Cap-and-Trade" and other energy-related laws could not pass Congress, the "EPA is now effectively legislating climate policy for the nation."
These are the illegal immigrants empowered by President Obama's extra-Constitutional power grab that effectively implements the controversial 'DREAM Act' , though it could not pass a Democrat-controlled Congress in 2009 and 2010. This act promises to speed the unchecked flow of illegals into the U.S. and is intended to ensure a permanent Democrat majority. Further, their presence promises to bankrupt a welfare state already teetering on the brink of economic calamity.
No federal government has damaged the American free market more than this one. No federal government has stolen more employment, more freedom, more private property -- from this and future generations -- than this one. No government has created more regulations, more unconstitutional dictates, more -- dare I say it -- slavery than this one.
Now, given all of these facts: can there be any doubt what Barack Obama meant when he twice proposed, "a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded" as our military?
The Obama-Democrat Left has mounted the first successful counter-revolution -- against the American Revolution -- in our history. Using an incessant series of attacks by a fifth column, the intent of the counter-revolution is to eradicate the effects of the American Revolution. The most magnificent society ever created hangs in the balance.
The elections in November represent our last chance to salvage the American experiment.
Marshal your parents, your children, your siblings, your neighbors, your coworkers -- marshal everyone you know, because the stakes could not be higher.
