Obama is MAD for Socialism


For anyone that grew up during the Cold War, you would be familiar with the concept of MAD, Mutually Assured Destruction. The concept was that basis of the arms race between the United States and the Soviet Union. Basically, each side knew that no matter how a war would proceed, there would be enough of a nuclear arsenal left to destroy both sides, making the idea of a nuclear exchange unrealistic. When the concept was introduced by the Regan Administration of intercepting and destroying nuclear missiles, the Soviets countered by increasing the number of missiles launched so as to overwhelm the defensive systems. This concept eventually bankrupted the Soviet economy and the nation fell.
For many decades now, liberals and conservatives have also engaged in the principle of MAD, with neither side able to effectively swing the country in either direction. Obama has taken a page out of the Soviet handbook. Instead of lobbing individual liberal policy missiles into space with the possibility of it being shot down, Obama is attempting to overwhelm the conservative defenses by launching all missiles. To this point, he has been effective. Obama has pushed one program after another on the American people. Programs that once would have been up for weeks of debate, now get talked about for a couple of days before the next one comes through. Meanwhile, congress is voting Yes on the proposal from weeks previous. I try to follow the news and I am ignorant of all that has passed.
The end result of Obama’s MAD programs will be the same as the Soviets, total financial collapse. Who will be our drunken Yeltsin sitting on a tank in times square.
