A Pyrrhic Victory for America’s Youth [Will BO's punks stop dancing when entitlement bill comes due?
National Review ^ | 11/12/12 | Scott W Atlas

Posted on 11/12/2012 2:17:24 PM PST by SoFloFreeper

Dancing in Chicago, young voters gleefully celebrated President Obama’s victory. Indeed, voters younger than 30 may well have changed the outcome of the race. They represented 19 percent of all voters, even more than they did in 2008, and they favored President Obama by 60 to 37 percent, according to exit polling.

One college student asked me, “What exactly are they so excited about?”

Presumably, they aren’t celebrating their job prospects. Under this administration, unemployment of younger Americans and recent college graduates is not very different from the scandalous unemployment rates of youth in failing European countries whose misguided economic policies are creating a nearly jobless generation.

The perfect song for Obama

Cult of Personality - Living Colour

Look in my eyes
What do you see?
The cult of personality

I know your anger, I know your dreams
I’ve been everything you want to be
Oh, I’m the cult of personality

Like Mussolini and Kennedy
I’m the cult of personality
The cult of personality
The cult of personality

Neon lights, a Nobel prize
When a mirror speaks, the reflection lies
You don’t have to follow me
Only you can set me free

I sell the things you need to be
I’m the smiling face on your TV
Oh, I’m the cult of personality

I exploit you, still you love me
I tell you, one and one makes three
Oh, I’m the cult of personality

Like Joseph Stalin and Gandhi
I’m the cult of personality
The cult of personality
The cult of personality

Neon lights, a Nobel prize
When a leader speaks, that leader dies
You won’t have to follow me
Only you can set you free

You gave me fortune, you gave me fame
You me power in your God’s name
I’m every person you need to be
Oh, I’m the cult of personality

I’m the cult of, I’m the cult of
I’m the cult of, I’m the cult of
I’m the cult of, I’m the cult of
I’m the cult of, I’m the cult of personality

I believe it was John Adams that said: “THIS CONSTITUTION WORKS ONLY WITH A MORAL & RELIGIOUS PEOPLE. IT’S TOTALLT INADEQUITE FOR ANY OTHER”. It look as if he is proving right. It appears that we have lost our moral footing, and everything and anything is “MORAL” as long as “IT FEELS GOOD”. Never mind what the real outcome is going to be. Well, these 51% has chosen which path this country is headed for. The other 49% had better get used to that, and prepare for the worst. Because it’s coming and the only ones that will survive will be those that have prepared for it.

They are now.

BTW - When one of these leeches tries for some type of government assistance and are told they do not qualify because of A and B, they will then do A and B.

Take for instance, a women needs food but doesn’t want to be bothered to get a job. She goes to the social services office and applies for WIC. The social worker then explains that she does not qualify for WIC because she does not have a child. Guess what happens next... I personally know people that do this. They have done it for other benefits too.

Once on assistance, it’s almost impossible to get off. If they get a job, they lose the freebies. Now they are trapped forever on the government dole. When the kids grow up they continue the cycle.

BO’s people live in a world of haze and conspiracy theories to explain why they aren't “making it”. They'll hit a stage of confusion and disillusion before long and the right person can turn their worldview of powerful forces conspiring against them right around and aim it at Barry and the democrat fascists.

If there's anyone thinking along those lines, especially the right kind of person thinking along those lines, I have yet to hear of them. The fact of the matter is, though, BO and the democrat fascists ARE the Wiemar Republic and can't escape that role. The only question is whether it will be a Hitler or a patriot who takes advantage of that fact.

If you’ve ever been to Chicago proper you would know we are talking about black youths only. They don’t work. They don’t plan to work. If they aren’t already collecting Welfare on their own then they are still living with their single mothers or some other female who is on Welfare. There won’t be any financial repercussions to these people until the Welfare system fails.

Had I been a Romney advisor I would have stressed going after the youth vote. Even tapping into you somewhat, hit them with these future deficits in addition to Social Security and Medicare. They may be naive and in some cases, stupid, but lots of us at that age thought we knew it all.

...and when the welfare system fails we who are paying for it will be blamed. When parasites kill the host, the host is always blamed, not the parasites. Welfare is more addictive than heroin.

Maybe it will help increase non-minority baby births since minorities are guaranteed welfare based on their skin color.

Those who are on the dole will NEVER NEVER NEVER understand what has happened to them when it all collapses. I have NEVER heard a liberal hold themselves accountable. For anything. It is ALWAYS someone else’s fault. ALWAYS.

I hear what you're saying but you forget that under Obamacare being pregnant is a medical condition that will be looked at as a cost/benefit situation and if it would add someone to the welfare costs, treated by abortion. I don't doubt mandatory abortion will be the law of the land within two years at the outside.

After all, the USSC has already ruled that the Federal government can force you to be sterilized for whatever reason they see fit so ending the pregnancy as part of the sterilization is no big deal at all.

This was my thought on election night. I stayed up late sipping whiskey thinking about how you can buy the Soviet’s grandaughters for $15 in Istanbul these days. You get what ya pay for.

Just received my 2013 medical insurance premium warnings from my job (we have “Cadillac” plans)...

From $230 to over ONE THOUSAND DOLLARS A MONTH!!!

Now in 2014, we will have federal subsidies to lower the costs...

But it will be single payer (socialized health care) by then!

When Obama’s death panels are killing their older relatives by the bushel these Bolshevik Brats will be one their friggin’ own without the sense to wipe their butts!

When Junior grows up and realizes that he’ll be spending the rest of his life working for the Socialist Republic of Former America, he’ll realize what a moron he’s been.

By then, of course, it’ll be to late.

Sorry, Junior, you lose.

I've been thinking about this.. A LOT..

I know what 0bama is doing (Collapse of America for reboot as National Socialists States with 0bama as Dictator), but.. Who's behind 0bama? Who is giving him the marching orders and HOW to accomplish the 'transformation' of America into a Socialist Dictatorship with 0bama as King?

George Soros' hands are all over the 0bama's regime's actions.. The Soros style of collapsing countries from within is alive and well in America. Here's 0bama's action items (not necessarily in order), towards achieving America's collapse and transformation:

- Occupy Wall Street (OWS) formation used to hasten 'DIVISION' in America (99% vs. 1%) ahead of 0bama's long campaign to 'divide and conquer'

- Bogus 'War on Women' campaign to scare females and turn them against the 'evil Republicans' (Female vote getter!) - Stimulus spending AIMED AT MASSIVE NATIONAL DEBT to achieve a SLOWING OF AMERICA'S GROWTH. WE MIGHT NOT RECOVER and four more years of the King will ensure that.

- Escalate entitlements (To garner votes!)

- Obamacare (The ultimate 2012 vote getter!)

- 0bama's money laundering for his campaign through 'green' projects using tax payer's money, such as Solyndra

- Executive Order overturning immigration law (Hispanic votes!)

- President's stated refusal to uphold Federal Law (DOMA) and passage of Repeal of DADT (LGBT votes!)

- Shrink our Military and REDUCE OUR NUCLEAR ARSENAL TO DANGEROUSLY LOW LEVELS, making us vulnerable

- Gun bans leading to gun confiscations

(Note that nothing's 'been done' for blacks because they'll vote for 0bama no matter what, even with 15% unemployment (or are entitlements preferred over working??))

I've omitted a few but MOST OF THE ABOVE ACTIONS/EVENTS ARE TRAITOROUS AND TREASONOUS BECAUSE THEY REPRESENT THE WILLFUL COLLAPSE OF AMERICA FOR THE PURPOSE OF OVERTURNING OUR FREE-MARKET, CAPITALIST REPUBLIC. 0bama's impeachable offenses are numerous, and I haven't even shown 'Fast & Furious', lying to the American people about 'a protest over a video', dereliction of duty in Benghazi for abandonment of Americans on the ground requesting assistance, and now the possible 'prison' at Benghazi in direct violation of an 0bama Executive Order.

How many passes does 0bama get? I think we're past ENOUGH ALREADY.

Head like a hole.
Black as your soul.
I'd rather die than give you control.
Bow down before the one you serve.
You're going to get what you deserve.
Bow down before the one you serve.
You're going to get what you deserve.
God money's not looking for the cure.
God money's not concerned about the sick among the pure.
God money let's go dancing on the backs of the bruised.
God money's not one to choose

Family members that I know backed Obama will be getting cut off $$$$-wise. (not that it matters, we don’t have much) Will NOT assist in their freeloading.Sooner, rather than later, I will be giving the tiny assets I do have to those members that are conservative-leaning. Even if it’s a piece of china, or figurine. Seriously, I am SO ticked.

Will at least make me feel better.

Forgot to mention a key aspect: Growing government while at the same time killing the private sector. If 0bama had his way there’d be NO private sector. “You didn’t build that!”—Barack Obama

Well, eliminating the old folks (those who know how America is SUPPOSED TO BE) so the indoctrinated youth are the majority; JUST DON’T CENSOR THEIR INTERNET. THAT MIGHT PISS THEM OFF!

A good summation of why it happened and what is coming:

“...But all the dependency champions who celebrated on Tuesday night cannot stop the coming storm. The greatest advantage Obama had going into the election was not demography but the fact that the full consequences of his statist economic policies and his pro-jihadist foreign policy have not yet been felt.

Nationalized healthcare will only be fully implemented in 2014. Americans will only begin watching old men and women die because the federal government denied them lifesaving, but expensive treatments a year from now. They will only lose their doctors due to dwindling Medicare reimbursements in a year.

College students who got out the vote for Obama will only find themselves doomed to low-paying jobs and a life of indebtedness as they fail year in and year out to pay off their college loans, in a year or two. And by the time they realize what it means to be saddled with a national debt of $16 trillion, they will be locked into a government-controlled economy that requires them to keep their silence or lose their livelihoods...” Caroline Glick

No.
Communist governments always blame everything on he previous regime until that gets old, maybe in 10 years, then they blame stuff on "wreckers" or "enemies of the people" or "enemies of the State." The first generation of enthusiasts buys it for decades before cynicism begins to seep in. At some point the regime will turn the bemused generation against the rest of the population in a "Cultural Revolution" or an analogue.

It is more likely that Barry will use those in danger of disenchantment to afflict oreliminate those designated as the cause of all their troubles, namely “Capitlist roaders” and “reactionaries” and “Bushites” and “wreckers” and “Christians.”
