The Reason Obama Is Constitutionally and Morally Wrong.

2014-10-12-obama

Our Founding Fathers in their Genius and Love for us provided for us certain Positive Freedoms.  They created for us a government with checks and balances to protect us from tyranny in any form.  Our Representative Democracy was created to protect us from Tyranny in any form and one of those forms was The tyranny of the majority.

tyr•an•ny (ˈtɪr ə ni) 

n., pl. -nies.

1. arbitrary or unrestrained exercise of power; despotic abuse of authority.
2. the government or rule of a tyrant.
3. a state ruled by a tyrant.
4. oppressive or unjust government.
5. undue severity or harshness.
6. a tyrannical act.

Obama has embraced identity based politics and in doing so he is catering to the tyranny of the majority in order to arbitrarily turn the tide of public opinion in his favor.  Name dropping Ferguson Missouri in front of the United Nations, how would he feel if Michele Obama aired their dirty laundry in public?

Catering to the Mexican vote and the Vote of the Muslim majority the fastest growing population of the most illiterate and violent people on earth, is an obvious breach of protocol.

The phrase “tyranny of the majority” (or “tyranny of the masses“), used in discussing systems of democracy andmajority rule, involves the scenario in which decisions made by a majority place its interests above those of an individual or minority group, constituting active oppression comparable to that of tyrants and despots.[1] In many cases a disliked ethnic, religious or racial group is deliberately penalized by the majority element acting through the democratic process.[citation needed]

Supermajority rules, constitutional limits on the powers of a legislative body, and the introduction of a Bill of Rights have been used to counter the problem.[2] A separation of powers may also be implemented to prevent the problem from happening internally in a government.[2]

Obama, is planning on writing laws and passing them all by himself.

Obama was touted as the next Abraham Lincoln.  Lincoln was the great Uniter, he brought the people together and kept the Union in tact.  Obama is more like the great divider, we have never been more divided as a nation, Feminists, Christians, Muslims, Mexicans, Homosexuals.  It is more like he is trying to start a Civil War than prevent one.

Obama, intellectually, never developed beyond the point of being a biased lawyer, he never even tried to become the mental equivalent of a judge.  He was always one sided and prejudiced.  He has always been on one side, his own side, projecting his sense of self onto people that he identifies with and incapable of being impartial and judicious.

Our government was created to be a meritocracy of Reason and Results, not a tyranny of issues.  The world is not a better place since Obama’s rule began nor is the Nation.  To reward people based on their issues and their feelings of victimization when they haven’t raised themselves to a place where they can create value for people other than themselves, and to put them in positions of authority as equals is a sabotage of our government.  Failure is not equal to success.  Reason is not equal to unreason.  Tacitly validating people’s emotional appeals is a dynamic tautology of a logical fallacy.  The intensity of your emotion doesn’t make you any more correct.

In order to unleash the HIGHEST COMMON GOOD you need the consent of the wisest and most reasonableand most educated.  What Obama is doing is invoking the LOWEST COMMON GOOD.  He is dragging all Americans down to equality with hood rats, and welfare babies in the ghettos of the United States that only parasite off the economy, and they will only ever parasite off the economy because while they benefit from an increased quality of life in the United States they are also contemptuous of our values, the values that create the surplus that creates their quality of life.

Every act of theft or unwarranted gain in a monetary unit decreases all of the value of all of the money in that monetary unit proportionately.  Instead of being lead by our better angels Obama is being lead by his worser demons. 

There are certain terms that are synonymous with tyranny.

Arbitrary comes from the Latin arbitrarius, the source of arbiter; someone who is tasked to judge some matter.[2] An arbitrary legal judgment is a decision made at the discretion of the judge, not one that is fixed by law.[3] In some countries, a prohibition of arbitrariness is enshrined into the constitution.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arbitrariness

When one rules in such a way as to create a disparate impact in favor of a people incapable of reimbursing or equitably returning whatever they were granted, and without an inclination to be appreciative for whatever gain they accrue from the source of that accrual, that is an act of theft and sabotage.  That is rewarding failure and punishing success.

IN CLOSING

I will leave you with this…

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed;[7]

 We…solemnly publish and declare, that these colonies are and of a right ought to be free and independent states…and for the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine providence, we mutually pledge our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honour.”

That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

PLASTICITY OF THE SENSE OF SELF.

Image

This is my personal philosophic calculus, so please give me credit if you use this term.  I believe that we automatically and unconsciously expand and retract our sense of self.  Imagine that you are at a store and you have put some items in a cart and you are distracted for a moment and find your cart missing.  How do you feel?  not good, right?  Because you expanded your sense of self to include the cart temporarily, because the items in the cart have positive survival data for you.

 In the same way a toddler expands his sense of self to include his mother’s bewbies.  THEM’S MY BEWBIES!  He feels a sense of possession and protective of them.  We can do this with people, objects, our issues, ideas, etc.  Some people expand their sense of self to include fatness, or rape victims.  We feel sympathy, same pathos.

A problem can arise when a person is not emotionaly healthy and they don’t want to be.  They cling to disease or error and they champion error.   They conflate themselves with the issue.  Take for example Medusa, she was raped once and from that moment forward she hated all men.  All men did not rape her.  I refer to this as the problem of the general, the specific, and the personal.  She was personally raped by one man but blamed all men.  That is not understanding the difference between the personal and the general.  it is a form of conflation, a logical fallacy that I believe I am the first to point out.

When two people have the same addiction, damage, or issue and they form a relationship based on it not wanting to be healthy.  I refer to this as “the disease is in relationship with itself through them”.  This always reminds me of the ancient concept of demonic possession.  The interesting thing is that these dysfunctional relationships are formed much more quickly than functional relationships.  How often do we ally ourselves with the better angels or our brothers and sisters?
