"Harsh realities of an Obama victory in 2012"
Dr. Walter Williams, noted commentator, educator and author has made a startling prediction about Barack Obama's possible (imminent to the doctor) re-election next year. As a noted black conservative economist, he has taught at several universities and currently teaches at George Mason University.
Here is Dr. William's rationale by sheer numbers to support his reasoning:
The media won't talk about a one-sided victory that is assured because a hard fought election means hundreds of millions (or in Obama's case – billions) to them in advertising.
America's role as the leading super power disappears? Hurrah for Barack Obama! The U.S. government rushes toward bankruptcy, the dollar continues to sink on world markets and the price of daily goods and services soar due to inflation fueled by Obama's extraordinary deficit spending? Obama wins handily.
Critics argue that Dr. Williams is crazy. He doesn't understand volatile politics and world conditions that are declining. Williams responds with a simple, “Sure I know. That's why I know Obama will win. The American people are notoriously ignorant of economics. Economics is the key to why Obama should be defeated.”
Williams continues, “Even when Obama's policies lead the nation to final ruin, the majority of the American people are going to believe the bait-and-switch tactics Obama and his supporters in the media use to explain why it isn't his fault. After all, things were much worse than understood when he took office.”
College educated women will vote for Obama. Though they will be offended by this, they swoon at his oratory. It's really not more complex than that.
Liberals will vote for Obama. He is their last great hope.
Democrats will vote for Obama. He is the leader of the party and his coattails will carry them to victory nationwide.
Hispanics will vote for Obama. He is the path to citizenship for those who are illegal. Hispanic leaders recognize the political clout they carry in the Democratic Party.
Union members will vote overwhelmingly for Obama. He is their key to money and power in business, state and local politics.
Big business will support Obama. They already have. He has almost $1 billion in his re-election coffers gained largely from his connections with big business and is gaining every day. Big business loves Obama because he gives them access to taxpayer money as long as they support his social and political goals.
The media love him. They may attack the people who work for him, but they love him. After all, to not love him would be racist in their world of liberalism.
Most other minorities and special interest groups will vote for him. Oddly, the overwhelming majority of Jews and Muslims will support him because they won't vote Republican. American Indians will support him. Obviously homosexuals tend to vote Democratic. And lastly ….
Approximately half of independents will vote for Obama. And he doesn't need anywhere near that number because he has all of the groups previously mentioned. The president will win an overwhelming victory in 2012.
One man's opinion in December, 2011, 11 months before the election.
Professor Joseph Olson of Hamline University of Law in St. Paul, MN points out some interesting facts concerning the last presidential election:
- Number of states won by Obama: 19 - McCain: 29
- Square miles of land won by Obama: 580,000 – McCain: 2,427,000
- Population of counties won by Obama: 127 million – McCain: 143
- Murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won by Obama: 13.2 – McCain: 2
According to Professor Olson, “In aggregate, the map of the territory McCain won was mostly land owned by taxpaying citizens of the country. Obama territory mostly encompassed those citizens living in low income tenements and living off various forms of government welfare ...”
Olson believes the United States is now somewhere between the “complacency and apathy” phase of Dr. William's definition of democracy, with some forty percent of the nation's population already having reached the governmental dependency” phase.
If Congress grants amnesty and citizenship to 11 million criminal invaders called illegals – and they vote – than we can say goodbye to the U.S.A., as we know it, in fewer than five years, according to Professor Olson.
A dismal future of the Republican Party from two learned opinions. A warning that should be heeded seriously by whichever Republican wins the nomination next year indeed."
I look forward to comments, but please don't criticize or waste our reading time with "Not ALL Blacks vote for Obama"....We all know this is an article and he is generalizing to make his points. No, not ALL of any group mentioned will vote for Obama; the majority? Yes. For the reasons above. Also, I know that some of my liberal readers will question saying "Goodbye to the USA" Take heed to the next words..."as we know it." BIG consideration..........especially for those of us who remember what America was like when everyone, natural born and naturalized, here put her first. BIG difference.
After writing this post on Monday, I was in the car listening to Michael Medved who quoted from several polls..........Obama's losing a lot in demographics he'd won over in the last election. I hope Williams sees those and writes again. I still agree with Williams in that I think it will be nearly impossible to beat Obama (particularly if Ron Paul is chosen, which he will not...remember McCain was LAST in the Iowa Caucuses), but I have to veer toward Romney because the reasons most of those in the once-Obama, now-more pro Republican voters are giving is THE ECONOMY.
