When Perfect Storms Collide
By: Neil Braithwaite
Set two perfect storms on a collision course and you don’t have to be a seasoned meteorologist to know that the aftermath could be catastrophic. However, if these two “perfect storms” happen to be political in nature, the term catastrophic may be a bit over the top, that is unless the eyes of both storms happen to contain United States Representativeâ€™s, Senatorâ€™s and the President.
The current economic and social conditions of not only our country, but also the world, have culminated in a perfect storm for seeding a European style socialist government here in America. In the midst of these unprecedented conditions, many citizens, businesses and political leaders are being overtaken by this powerful storm, leading them to sometimes abandon rational thought and accept the unimaginable â€“ a socialist style government in America.
This first storm hit America’s shores full-force with the Presidential election of Barack Obama. Today in America, the winds of â€œhope and changeâ€ have grown to form a perfect storm to socialism.
The storm has continued to gather strength from a Democrat majority in congress, the liberal media, a deepening economic recession, and constant congressional hearings attacking everything to do with capitalism. Add in the millions of useful idiots among us who donâ€™t have a clue about what President Obama is intent on doing to America, and you have the making of a perfect storm to socialism.
Unfortunately, many defenders of liberty and democracy, who clearly identified early storm warning signs, are now being overruled by Obamaâ€™s political regime, while being maligned, ignored and discounted by the liberal media as a bunch of racist Obama haters and conspiracy kooks.
The Democrat and liberal media attacks, coupled with a Democrat majority pushing and passing socialist legislation through congress against the will of a majority of Americans, have spawned what a new Pew Research Center poll calls, â€œperfect storm conditions.â€
These perfect storm conditions have created an enormous second perfect storm in America, powered by a nearly unanimous congressional Republican coalition in the House and Senate, an ever-growing conservative Tea Party movement, and an overwhelming 80 percent of Americans that no longer trust the federal government.
With government being the catalyst for both perfect storms, something is going to have to give in Washington – and soon.
Political storm trackers calculate these two storms colliding on November 2 of this year. The total effect of the collisionâ€™s aftermath on our government depends largely on the size and strength each storm can generate until then.
While the size and strength of each storm may ebb and flow between now and November, donâ€™t expect either storm to veer off course. A collision is inevitable.
So make sure to keep your emergency communication devices tuned in for further updates and developments from your favorite political storm tracker teams – and hold on to your hats come November.
