FAUSTIAN BARGAIN WITH HOBSON'S CHOICE HEADED TOWARD USA
November 20, 2012
“With the demonizing of Mitt Romney by the liberal media, America lost the unique chance to have a decent president,” said Victor Alcazar, Greeley, Colorado. “By re-electing an incompetent president, America also lost its greatness. I’m a retired citizen of this country and I’m beginning to lose faith in the American people.”
Four years ago, Barack Obama promised hope and change. We suffered 14 million unemployed and 7 million under-employed. We suffered a $700 billion annual trade debt. We suffered $12 trillion national debt. We suffered 36 million Americans subsisting on food stamps. Thousands of our finest young people sacrificed their lives in the 7 year old and totally useless Afghanistan War. We faced over 20 million illegal aliens living and working in our country at a cost of over $346 billion annually to tax payers. They undercut American jobs. (Source: Edwin Rubenstein, economist, www.TheSocialContract.com) We faced environmental, energy and resource issues that threaten (d) to overwhelm our civilization.
In 2012, the American people re-elected an incompetent man back into the White House while we re-elected most of the incompetent congressmen and senators who jammed us into this predicament in the first place.
Albert Einstein said, “Insanity can be defined as a person or persons doing the same thing over and over again while expecting a different outcome.”
Are the American people, both liberal and conservative or independents THAT stupid to prove Einstein’s dictum? Answer: yes!
Einstein also said, “The problems in the world today are so enormous, they cannot be solved with the level of thinking that created them.”
Obviously, if we re-elected the same incompetent Obama into the same position of president of the United States, and he failed in the first four years—he most certainly will fail in the next four years. He lacks the intellectual, educational and business dynamics to garner experts and specialists to succeed.
He did nothing to solve our unemployment crisis. He did nothing to secure our borders, but he did sue states that tried to protect themselves from illegal aliens taking jobs from Americans. He did keep the Afghanistan War ongoing and costing us billions upon billions of dollars. He kept the $700 billion annual trade deficit on-going while making China rich and our country poor and unemployed. If he showed competence, he would have instituted “Fair trade” instead of continuing “Free trade.”
If he showed competence, he would not have put us another $4 trillion in debt, but he would have paid down the debt. Instead, projections show he will add another $4 trillion to top $20 trillion national debt in 2016.
Our second president, John Adams, said, “There are two ways to defeat a country: by the sword and by debt.” We face horrific consequences, but we re-elected an incompetent “community organizer” to run a multi-trillion dollar country. Obama represents a Volkswagen racing on the Indianapolis 500 track. Because he doesn’t stand a chance, we don’t either.
With 36 million Americans subsisting on food stamps four years ago, Obama celebrates that we now feed 47 million Americans eating off the backs of taxpayers. Did he produce jobs for those 47 million? No, he didn’t. He could have if he showed competence, but he didn’t because he lacks competence.
Where does it leave us? For all the welfare, food stamps, debt, war and dozens of other problems, he borrowed money, did not produce jobs and put more people on welfare than any other president in history.
Faustian Bargain with Hobson’s Choice as a result
We re-elected a man who lives by the Faustian Bargain: which means we sold our soul for the moment to save ourselves for the moment, but Obama created an even bigger debacle for future generations. All the non-taxpayers feeding at the welfare trough grow more than the rest of us who work to pay for that 47 percent. What happens when that 47 percent becomes 51 percent?

At some point, and that point races toward us at breakneck speed, we face Hobson’s Choice: which means, we have raced our car so fast toward the cliff at 100 miles another than no amount of breaking will save us. We have two choices, we will careen over the cliff to certain destruction or we can jump out, but we will still slide over the cliff with the momentum of our bodies (country) at 100 miles per hour.
It’s beyond me how and why an entire American people could re-elect known incompetence and a known failure back into the White House to lead a formerly solvent country into $20 trillion in debt and ultimately breakdown and destruction via Hobson’s Choice.
