This is a tale of a young Senator who set out to change the world. To grab power. To reshape everything.
To fundamentally violate one of the truth of existence and to fight against it.
That truth, LIFE ISN’T FAIR.
I believe (to borrow another movie) it to be the Inception idea that started modern Liberalism.
If Life isn’t fair, then let’s make it equal. So that it is no more or less fair for anyone.
But that way leads to The Dark Side.
The Sith await you.
Think about it, you have a (in this case young) Senator who rises in a time of stress and War and Crisis. He promises hope & change. Though the hope and change he wants is to control everyone and everything. That way, Social Justice is “Fair”. And Life if “fair”.
In the time of crisis he is granted powers and takes steps no leader has ever dared take before. He takes over the Banks, insurance companies, the auto industry.
He consolidates more power to central authority that ever before. he is playing both sides against each other in the name of “fairness” to consolidate power. Because, after all, they only way life can be “fair” is if you control it from birth to death.
You have no freedom. But it’s Fair! 😦
“So this is how liberty dies… with thunderous applause”–Sen. Padme Amidala
But life is not fair.
And this frustrates him. He has such a grand vision. But he can’t get it done.
It’s not fair!
He’s so much smarter than everyone else. He’s so much better. More enlightened.
And all he wants is for everyone to be equal. Now that’s “fair”.
And before the November 2nd elections (9/10/10): “If it was just a referendum on whether we’ve made the kind of progress that we need to, then people around the country would say ‘We’re not there yet,'” Obama said.
“If the election is about the policies that are going to move us forward, versus the policies that will get us back into a mess, then I think Democrats will do very well.”
And on Nov 2, he and his minions were “shellacked”. But that didn’t stop them from have a very productive Lame Duck Session where they got 90% of what they wanted.
As a matter of fact, he’s now the “Comeback Kid”. The Emperor has New Clothes.
But still he fears that his life’s work will be undone, challenged or left unfulfilled. The dreams of 90 years of Progressive Liberalism rest upon his shoulders.
So, like Palpatine, he will have to be craftier and take more control rather than letting his minions like Darth Vader do all the heavy lifting.
“Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.”— Master Yoda
And who hates more liberals.
Only Radical Muslims and terrorists.
Class Warfare. Hate the rich (but not the Liberal Rich like George Soros or even Obama who made $5 million dollars last year).
Race Warfare. Pitting blacks and Hispanics against Whites because Whites are “not fair” and oppressive.
Despite the fact that liberal policies hurt blacks and hispanics.
It keeps them down.
The promise of “fairness” and “Justice” keep them in line. Even though in the 50 years they haven’t even come close to either.
Religious Warfare. The more Progressive (aka radical) they are the seemingly more anti-religious they are- especially Christianity.
How is that different from the Sith wanting to wipe out the Jedi??
The Jedi are spiritual. The Force is spiritual.
They must be crushed.
The State is your only salvation.
The Government is your protector. Your savior.
But if Obama is Senator Palpatine, cum Emperor-wanna be, who is Darth Vader. The angry, power mad servant of the Dark Side?
Nancy Pelosi, who else. 🙂 (Not Dick Cheney as the Liberals tried to use in 2005 after Bush beat Kerry for re-election)
But it does point to the fact that when Liberals object to the dirty tricks way things are being done “unfairly” that usually means they have already done them and you’re not allowed to do what they are doing because they are so vastly superior and more “fair” than you.
But Darth Vader never got demoted to a Minority Position. This should just strengthen her backbone and her insanity.
She will hate even more at being thwarted and simultaneous be proud of her many accomplishments over the last 2 years.
Obstructing the rebel scum will be new mission. They cannot be allowed to retake what she has taken.
After all, it is my own opinion that Nancy Pelosi thought she was the Empress for the last 2 years and that Barack was the upstart who was getting in HER way.
Then there’s The Conspirator, aka Harry Reid. He who works behind the scenes to make it work through any means necessary.
You have the faceless “enemy”- The Rich. The Corporations. The Separatists.
You have the faceless, uniform soldiers of the cause, The Unions and the Bureaucracy. A hegemony of purpose and the foot soldiers of the cause.
And then you ad in an Orwellian touch, The Ministry of Truth. The Liberally-biased media that is a champion of the Empire’s needs and wants and will spread it’s message and lies far and wide across the land. Willingly so. And they all proclaims to be “fair” and “objective”.
Those who disagree with this view are the evil ones who are not fair and not objective: FOX,the Internet-Like Drudge,Daily Caller etc, and Talk Radio.
Which is why they must be controlled. So you send out the faceless bureaucratic clone minions of the FCC, the FTC, the FDA to stop them.
The SEIU are the people’s clone army. Foot soldiers for the cause.
Then there are the Liberal lawyers and judges who stop the resistance by ruling from ideology under the cover of law. To control the people ever further.
Then comes the Resistance, The Rebel Alliance.
A loose band of like-minded independent people who just want their freedoms back. To restore democracy and give all people a chance.
Meet THE TEA PARTY.
Hated, denigrated, and reviled by the Imperials.
But their allies in the Government haven’t proven they can be trusted yet. Not after the Lame Duck give aways they allowed.
So this chapter in the saga has yet to be written and it falls to all of us in the movement to keep the pressure on.
To quote yet another movie, “Never Give up! Never Surrender!”
Or as Master Yoda might say, ““Do or do not… there is no try.”
The Saga Continues.
