...I am beginning to think that H stands for the name of another historical leader...
Ronald Reagan was surely not a prophet. However, compare his warnings to Barack Obama’s quotes below:
“[T]he Founding Fathers… knew that governments don't control things. A government can't control the economy without controlling people. And they know when a government sets out to do that, it must use force and coercion to achieve its purpose. They also knew, those Founding Fathers, that outside of its legitimate functions, government does nothing as well or as economically as the private sector of the economy.” – Ronald Reagan, 1964
And now from BHO:
“I think that there was a tendency to lose track of the political and community organizing and activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalitions of power through which you bring about redistributed change” – Barack Obama, 2001
Coalition of powers to bring about redistributive change? Now, go back and re-read Reagan’s warning again. See the connection?
Or in other words…
“We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded [as our military]." – Barack Obama, 2008
