Remember how Barack Obama campaigned for president? He spoke about hope and change. He talked about ending partisan differences and bringing people together. Instead, Obama gave us partisan bills such as Obamacare, spiraling deficits and debts, class warfare, and racial rhetoric. But that's just the first term. What would a second term have in store?
Aaron Klein, writing in a column on Fox News, says that any assumptions or ideas regarding Obama's second term "do not scratch the surface of the specific, transformative assault that is planned upon our country."
Here are some of the second-term plans we uncovered:
-- The re-creation of a 21st-century version of FDR's Works Progress Administration program within the Department of Labor that would oversee a massive new bureaucracy and millions of new federal jobs;
-- An expansive, de facto amnesty program for illegal aliens via both executive order and interagency directives linked with a reduction in the capabilities of the U.S. Border Patrol.
-- A National Infrastructure Bank that would evaluate and finance infrastructure projects of substantial regional and national importance" and would finance "transportation infrastructure, housing, energy, telecommunications, drinking water, wastewater, and other infrastructures."
-- The wresting of control of the military budget from Congress by placing an "independent panel" in charge of military spending while slashing the defense budget in shocking ways.
-- A new "green" stimulus program and the founding of a federal "green" bank or "Energy Independence Trust," which would borrow from the federal treasury to provide low-cost financing to private-sector investments in "clean energy. "
-- Detailed plans to enact single-payer health care legislation controlled by the federal government.
Klein notes that the "blueprint" for a second term was uncovered "by investigating the policy papers and legislative proposals of the same progressive shadow groups that crafted Obama's first term."
