If We Follow Obama's Logic...

If we follow the logic of President Obama and some of his colleagues in NATO who feel -- in their "humanitarian" zeal -- that it is fine to respond to the "people" of a country and help them destroy their government, then perhaps it is time for some of us to ask the UN or China for help in taking over America because our government is not responding to the needs of its own people. It is breaking all the laws, taking us into further poverty, and going into wars that the people are against.

Americans have long been concerned with the direction their country is taking. According to a Gallup poll cited by CNN in February...

"Nearly 7 out of 10 Americans say they are dissatisfied with the size and power of the federal government and with nation's moral and ethical climate, says the Gallup Poll. Since January 2002, there has been almost an inversion in the public opinion on this question. Back then, 60 percent said they were satisfied with the size and power of the federal government, while 39 percent said they were dissatisfied.The greatest public dissatisfaction, however, is with the moral and ethical climate of the country. Today, 69 percent of Americans say they are dissatisfied with that climate, while 30 percent say they are satisfied."

Thus, with this in mind, isn't it logical that, if our current government -- like that of Gaddafi -- refuses to do the will of the people, we must ask the UN and or China to please come in and take over and serve the people?  I'm sure many dissatisfied Democrats, Republicans and Tea Party rabble would welcome this. They can't seem to agree on anything else.

Some might say, "That may be logical, but you may not be speaking for the majority of the country." Okay, but please note, it was not a majority that asked for NATO intervention in Libya. In fact, most of the tribes, the majority of the army and the civilians obviously are supporting Gaddafi, or he would not still be in power. Nor would the tribes attack the "rebels" and their NATO and CIA operatives if they wanted NATO to continue destroying the Libyan government.

Also, we might ask the South American nations to come in to mediate for us; after all, we keep referring to them as our South American cousins. The African Union offered a meditative peace plan to stop the fighting in Libya, but the "rebels," with their NATO and CIA "advisors" advised them against the plan, so they rejected it. This is too bad, it makes NATO and the "rebels" look as if rather than peace, they want power.

The problem then, is -- how much do the "rebels" know about running a government? At least the Chinese, who have had governments for 7,000 years, would know better how to run a government than the "rebels" who want to take over Libya with NATO help. But, if you look at how America is falling apart at the seams with the splits between the President and the parties in Congress, none of whom care about what the "people" want or need, isn't it logical that the time has come to ask someone else to come in, throw them out, take over and put the country back on a good track?  

In his speech today, President Obama proposed cutting $4-trillion from deficits in the next 12 years, which he says would "shrink discretionary spending and the defence budget," and added that such cuts would reduce "government outlays to Medicare and Medicaid, the largest federal healthcare programs."

The way it's going, we don't have 12 years or even two years. We will all be broke from wars no one wants except the corporations and the government. People are becoming poorer and poorer; the numbers of homeless and those with no safety net are rapidly growing. It is clear that America, France, Britain and others in the EU -- the main supporters of attacks in Libya -- are in disarray, but especially America which has a non-leader president and a Republican Congress of boneheads headed by John Boehner, Paul "idiot and thief" Ryan, and others of that ilk, and the disorganized Tea Party of Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachmann is worse.

Many have told me it is time for the UN or China to come in and take over America because it is out of control, run by a dictatorial and brutal regime of both parties who care not for the people; who are plunging us into eternal war based on lies, and we are ruining other countries in the process -- Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and more.

Of course, I am but following the logic of President Obama in this matter, and some of his colleagues in NATO who feel it is their right to go into other countries under the guise of the UN and NATO to take over the countries or to destroy them as we've done for the past three decades, beginning with President Ronald Reagan.

What's fair is fair, and we should be responsible for fairness and for the humanitarian needs of the American people. Far too many of us are suffering daily under a government that flouts the law, starts wars that wastes money and lives, destroys social safety nets to rake in more money for wars. Neither of the oligarchical parties care about the safety, security, health or well-being of the citizens who pay taxes and do the work of the society. These people are making American citizens into SLAVES. Surely, this is not "humanitarian" and must be stopped post-haste!

We all say, "God bless America," but the current government is not a blessing. It seems logical that, with God's blessing, perhaps the UN or China can do better than these fools who are running America at the present time.
