Barack Obama, The Tea Party And The Train-Wreck Of Modern Leftism

From RedState:

In the meantime, can anybody answer this question: where is the Tea Party of Progressives? Why are the Nascar morons and Jesus jokers the only people in this country who can mount an aggressive political movement? Will somebody please step up and take the baton?

(CLusterBeep Nation)

There is no Progressive Tea Party, because the Democrats are doing what Democrats want and it leads to untenable failure. When Barack Obama sat down to put together an economic bailout package for his election campaign, it could only have gone in one direction. He had to hand out lots of candy to his supporters and he had to take it from people who traditionally oppose partisan Democrats. Thus the American Jobs Act is a continuation of his “Stimulus” with splashy, mostly-symbolic penalties leveled at high-income earners.

This had to be The Tao of Obama because his electoral coalition that could still vouchsafe his reelection is a movable feast on the productive, proactive and the imaginative. The modern Democratic Party is a Visigoth Holiday at the expense of civil tradition and moral sentience. They want, what they want, when they want it. Hilaire Belloc described well what the contemporary Democrat loyalist has devolved into.

 The Barbarian hopes — and that is the mark of him, that he can have his cake and eat it too. He will consume what civilization has slowly produced after generations of selection and effort, but he will not be at pains to replace such goods, nor indeed has he a comprehension of the virtue that has brought them into being. Discipline seems to him irrational, on which account he is ever marvelling that civilization, should have offended him with priests and soldiers….


So what happens when there is nothing left for the followers of Barack Obama to flense? What happens when the victims of this “Progressivism” rise up and tell these people to grow their own produce and stop stealing from others? In Europe, we see this coming to pass. Greece is about to go Full-Metal Demetrious Poliorcetes and The IMF has no answers except to beg. As they’ve explained to Sec Treas. Geithner, they’ve got $400Billion, they need $4 Trillion. What’s one, measly Order of Magnitude amongst chums?

Europe has James Howard Kuntsler of ClusterBeep in a pother, because on his good days, he’s one of the last Leftist Thinkers who can still actually think. Just as Europe’s environmental problems with acid rain were a precursor to difficulties the US would face, the death of Eurosocialism should sound like the bell tolling for Obamanomics. This failure, particularly for The Left, will be the day upon which much fit collides with the shan.

Government’s view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it. — Ronald Reagan
