Administration represents fascism on the Potomac

Some equate the Obama adminstration with ordinary socialistic governments. They are wrong. The Obama adminstration operates more in a specific socialistic venue: fascism. Fascists are content to let private enterprise operate, provided those in charge sing the praises of the ruling group. In our day, this is called crony capitalism.


Those who publicly oppose the Obama regime are subjected to public calumny, improper tax audits, interruption of business and denunciation by “press,” who accept the dogma of the Obama administration without question.

Like Hitler, Obama, in the words of Mario Puzo’s bestselling book, “put layers of insulation between himself and any operational act.” He can truthfully claim that he didn’t know these things were going on. He didn’t need to. He made sure those drinking the Obama Kool-Aid were in charge.

One last thing. Keep a close watch on the members of the Service Employees International Union.

Do I believe that the Obama administration is prepared to suspend civil liberties and attempt to rule by fiat, if that becomes necessary to wreak their aims?

Absolutely I do.

End tax exemptions

Democrats in the Internal Revenue Service should have known that if they targeted Tea Party groups, conservatives would complain and ask for investigations.

I have always wondered why any group that takes in money should be exempt from some taxes. I don’t think that any political party, union, nonprofit, think tank or any other corporation should be exempt from taxes.
