    The following is merely a therory, let's hope it doesn't become reality:

    Many folks are hoping as well as predicting that Obama will be a one-term POTUSA. I am no longer sure about this. So give the following your most sober thoughts, because it could become a likely scenario:

    SEE:http://www.lvrj.com/opinion/obama-s-agenda--overwhelm-the-system-95716764.html

    I am simply speculating that if Obama continues to overwhelm the financial and social stability of America, this democracy and center of capitalism will eventually fail, and with a complete systemic failure of catastrophic proportions, he will usher in a world order of socialism in this nation and become our Hugo Chavez.

    Shalom,

    Mr. Root's proposition is so absurd it's hardly worth a response. One thing that I should point out is that Mr. Root conflates socialism and totalitarianism. There are many countries in Europe that have a democratic socialist or social democratic form of government and have a higher quality of life than we do and they protect human rights.

    Absurd, Maybe....BUT,

    .... could this be his agenda, and could it happen? You have to admit that it looks like this is what he's doing to America.

    Germany and Sweden are two examples.

    Nope. Mr. Obama is not a socialist. Not even close.

    You give one man too much credit. Do you actually believe that one man, Obama, is capable of tearing down a nation that we've spent over 200 years building?

    You have a good point, although you're coming at it from the other side of the political spectrum. It's like people who think he's involved in a Muslim conspiracy. Do they think if he said, "I now hand over America to the radical Islamic jihad." that the generals and officials would just stand down and say "okay, the radical Muslims are in charge now". No, he'd just be impeached and it wouldn't work.

    I'm not coming at it from any side of the political spectrum :). I'm coming at it from common sense. A single man, whether democrat, republican, green party, libertarian, or whatever, is not going to crumble the United States of America.

    This is where it gets humorous...I'd halfway expect a spurious source for this information...much like the UN "health" study that claims Cuba has better healthcare then the US.

    But hey, what do I know? I'm just one of those ignorant rubes that believes in the quaint, stupid, antiquated concepts of "freedom" and "liberty."

    The only way your quote isn't laughable is if you concede that Obama's a fascist.

    Let me get this straight: You have your government take over one of the largest companies in the US. You fire the CEO, simply because you can. And, without regard for legal precedent or the US Constitution, you require the general public to purchase a private item--under penalty of law if they refuse--to be enforced by our tax folks (after claiming "it's not a tax.")

    Not only is Obama a socialist, but he's a socialist that's a liar. That, my friend, is richly documented.

    The only way I don't win this argument outright is if you counter with the assertion that Obama is a Marxist or a Fascist (the latter may very well be true).

    Having said that...the American people are awake. If they vote out Obama, he'll go. He's pretty hardheaded IMO, but even he's not that stupid. The only two people in the administration so monumentally stupid and contemptuous of the American people--so much so that they'd try this stunt--are Eric Holder (that dude scares me to death...he's evil), and Rahm Emmanuel (and I think his issues are more self-serving than ideological).

    Nope. He's a corporatist and a sell-out. What I think you don't get is I wish he was a socialist. For all the good that healthcare reform did, it's a huge gift to the big insurance companies. They're going to get millions of new customers and make out like a bandit over this. There is no other industrialized country that allows for for-profit basic health insurance. The Obama administration has given billions to big business. A real socialist like Bernie Sanders wouldn't do that. You should listen to Sen. Sanders criticize Obama to get a real socialist perspective on Obama.

    One man did----Adolf Hitler----began in a Prague beer joint with his arrest and esculated from there-----He was Germany's "Slick Willie"

    You might say there were others involved---Goering & Hemmelir for starters-----but basically you gotta start at the top w/Hitler

    More 'State of Fear' stuff.

    People like to be scared - this thread is evidence of that.

    'Could we have Obama forever?'

    I will answer the same way I answered this question a couple of years ago.

    'Will Obama take his oath in the Koran?'

    The answer - no.

    It amazes me to see someone who wishes for that much power to be concentrated in the hands of the government.

    The age-old phrase "Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely" should give you pause.

    Be careful what you wish for. Our government has proven time and time again that they are not responsible with the authority they already have--yet you wish to give them so much more of it...kinda scary, in my book.

    Wow, what a thread! Look at all the ramblings of extremists and alarmists...all squeezed into less then 20 posts!

    Oh and look Godwin's Rule is proven in post #12

    I mean seriously people, I get you don't like the guy but come on with this foolishness. The junk I hear around here is worse than stuff I hear from the guy who chases UFOs that attends our church. You think the President is the worst guy ever, fine, but be realistic about what is going on. This kind of extremist/alarmist foolishness will advance your cause by absolutely nothing.

    This is as silly, far fetched and impossible an idea as the one that was floated a few years ago that Bush would declare a national security emergency to nullify or postpone the election of 2008.

    You also gotta start with a political structure which allows one man like Hitler to rise to power in the first place. We don't. Not to mention the absence of any war debt, or rampant inflation, or a military willing to play along with a grab for power. Not to mention the absence of a minority which can be used as the "internal enemy" which the majority of the population will tacitly agree with or rally around.

    Regardless of what one might think about Obama's intentions, there is no evidence to suggest the conditions are right, or could be right within our generation, for such a takeover to occur. We have our faults as Americans, but an attitude which would allow one person to gain authoritarian power is not one of them.

    Nope. Obama has done much to help the big corporations. He's not a Marxist at all.
