First casualty in second Obama term: Liberty
Times 24X7 ^ | 11/4/12 | Michal Conger

Many voters say this presidential election comes down to the economy. Others say they’re voting on social issues like abortion, or foreign policy and America's role in the world.

But Aaron Klein and Brenda Elliot believe it's about much more. Economic recovery and foreign policy, they say, are only pieces of a much larger issue at stake: liberty.

"The danger is that 2012 may not only the most important election of our lifetimes, but that it will be the last chance we have to save liberty as Americans have known it since 1776," they write in their recently released book, "Fool Me Twice: Obama's Shocking Plans for the Next Four Years Exposed."

In his now-infamous "flexibility" comments to Russian President Vladimir Putin earlier this year, President Obama revealed that he has a hidden agenda ready to implement after re-election.

Mr. Klein and Ms. Elliot delved into the policies that shaped Mr. Obama's first term to see if they could uncover his plans for a second.

Their book, intended to be a sort of blueprint for the next four years of an Obama presidency, lays out his plans for the military, a new green stimulus, immigration and amnesty, health care, jobs and wages, and the economy.

“Fool Me Twice” is intended simply to inform voters by divulging what the president won’t say, Mr. Klein told Times247 in an interview last week. Mr. Obama's "ultimate aim," he said, "is to implement a progressive utopia."

Mr. Obama’s “ultimate aim,” he said, “is to implement a progressive utopia.”

Progressive Utopia? Only for a miniscule portion of the population. For the rest of us? A dysfunctional world that would make the world of the “Hunger Games” look pleasant by comparison.

I’m pretty sure that the Obama regime has already chosen “Revenge” as their motto for a second term.

On Nov 7 the destruction will begin; no matter the results.

If El-presidente wins we are doomed as he will continue to destroy the nation and, indeed civilization (just look at the middle east compared to 4 yrs ago). If he looses he will do everything in his power, through executive orders if needed, to bring us to our knees in the time he has remaining. At the very least he’ll try to make things more difficult for Romney to succeed.

This is assuming that we will be able to get him out of the White House in Jan; I’m not convinced he will leave. Ever since late in ‘08 I have had this fear of martial law due to an international “crisis”....

God how I wish I’d have been wrong about this guy!

I have faith that the people will reject President Obama.


Because we are still a nation of individual liberty.

But that individualism is declining and in danger more than ever before.

If we do not reverse course, the next President who is like Obama will get a second term and America will not get a second chance.

A beter title for this book should have been “Fool Them Twice”...

I can agree with a lot of the premis from this book...I believe it is too little too late to illustrate what most of us already see coming...

The question you need to ask yourself is this...

“What are you prepared to do about it, and what are you prepared to sacrifice for it?”

I believe our first caasualty will be a loss of our ability to effectively communicate, and more important coordinate, conservative ideals in websites such as this...

It’ll be a subtle victory for socialism-lite that will be brought to us quickly and under the radar as has been stated before on one issue that was discussed years ago about our Second Amendment right gto keep and bear arms...

It will be a domino effect that will cripple those who are unprepared, and unwilling to believe that we will lose that right(s)...

The rest of their plan will be academic, and easy to implememt once most of the poeple will choose not to fight this anymore...

I would make sure you protect your intentions, your capabilities from everyone you know, including a lot of your family, both close and extended...

Just remember where your line in the sand is, and whagt you ar willing to do to push that line back, away from you if you have the chance...

It will be a lonely battle, one fraught with many dangers and perils to you and your family...

Think it through...have backup contigiency plans, and keep those between your ears for now...

Lets hope we are wrong about a possible second term for Obama, and we send him packing back to Chicago...

I still do not have a warm and fuzzy feeling about the results of next Tuesday...Lets be reserved in our victory, but prepared for dissapointment and be ready for a challenging time in our lives for the next 4 years...If this Representative Republic can survive for that long...

Good luck to us all...

This is exactly what I have been trying to tell friends and family members who say that Obama won't be able to enact his socialist agenda if he wins because a GOP Congress won't go along with him. I try to tell them that since he wouldn't be eligible to run for a 3rd term he wouldn't need to hide the illegitimate raw power that he has usurped in his current term to get around Congress by way of executive order, a highly questionable “implied” power that is not specifically granted by the Constitution, and by invoking executive privilege, an even more questionable "power" that is not even hinted at anywhere in the Constitution.

BTW, very surprisingly, to me at least, it appears that almost all university law professors, even at very liberal universities such as Cornell for one example, say that "executive privilege" is neither granted nor implied anywhere in the Constitution. Of course they may well reverse their opinions if Allah's "anointed one" gets another term in which to further plunder both our nation's wealth and our own God-given rights and liberties as individual American citizens.

I pray daily that God will restore freedom and Constitutional governance to we the people of our nation. However, given how shamefully we have ignored Him and violated His moral laws in recent years He may just ignore our prayers for relief from this ongoing nightmare that is the Obama presidency. 50+ million slaughtered unborn human beings are crying out to Him for justice.

God how I wish I’d have been wrong about this guy!

Me, too. I thought he would simply be an incompetent liberal, but he has turned out to be an enemy of the Republic, actively damaging it through malicious acts.

I pray we are rid of him soon, and there is a lot of crap that must be undone before we can begin to recover from those acts.
