Obama's political ideology stands at war with the "new mindset" for family values and personal responsibility he espouses to NAACP

July 17, 2009--

Obama's political ideology stands at war with the "new mindset" for family values and personal responsibility he espouses to NAACP.

          If Obama were able willing to apply to his own political ideology generally the "new mindset" he recommended to the NAACP on July 16, 2009 as excerpted in the CNN video below, he would be a limited-government "conservative" instead of a collectivist.  He thus could become a great president rather than one attempting to drive the nation pedal-to-the-metal over the edge of the free-market/personal-liberty plateau and into the bottomless pit of collectivism.  


          But, of course, he's unwilling to do so.  No doubt he's intellectually capable of recognizing the patent disconnect between the "new mindset" he recommends to the NAACP and his own leftist/collectivist/statist/socialist political ideology that he also naively applies internationally as Jimmy Carter on steroids melanin.  Nevertheless, instead of embracing the limited-government principles inherent in, and intrinsic to, the "new mindset" he recommends in his July 16, 2009 speech to the NAACP, he embraces and seeks to implement a "redistribution of wealth" political philosophy in all three branches of government -- legislative, judicial and executive-- as though it were a benevolent philosophy rather than an inherently totalitarian ideology.

          Since one can't reasonably doubt that he understands such disconnect, how can one explain his embrace of a political ideology that is virtually antithetical to the "new mindset" he advocates to the NAACP?  Even his staunchest critics would concede that barring some "Sanford-type" secret, Obama's handling of his marital and parental responsibilities admirably exemplify the "mindset" he recommends to others.  What's so sad is that a leader who appears to personify loyalty to "family values" embraces a political ideology so plainly hostile to promotion and preservation of, and respect for, such values in the form of the free-market/personal-liberty paradigm that made the country he "inherited" from George W. Bush the greatest force for human liberty in all of human history.  

          What makes it tragic is that he's in the process of squandering that legacy in pursuit of what seems almost indistinguishable from the long-discredited 18th Century utopian philosophies which Marx later sought to describe, and prescribe, as a form of evolutionary "science."   No wonder the person Obama selected as his "science" czar is a person whose political philosophy is at home in such 18th Century Utopian thought as it would be on Animal Farm or in a fascist or Stalinist or Maoist state.

Biography - Jim Wrenn

Jim is a proud descendant of 18th Century criminal exiles from England who swam to the Outer Banks when the British ship taking them to a Georgia penal colony sank in a storm near Cape Hatteras. Having the prescience to prevent their descendants from becoming "TarHeels," they immediately migrated to Virginia, where, within just a few generations they worked their way up into poverty. Jim's grandfather was the first in the family tree to see the distant horizons, but his career was cut short by severe injuries he sustained when a cousin cut down the tree.

After a brief stint in the Amry (ours) following graduation from law school, he began his legal career in the state bureaucracy but was never able to break into the federal bureaucracy. Several years later, he entered the private practice of law and co-founded a small law publishing company. Later, finding the publishing of small laws unstimulating and finding his private practice too private to be lucrative, he began writing political satire/commentary. His greatest vice is taking himself too seriously.

He wrote the definitive books on the Clinton Era Error: the Clinton Liebrary Book (pre-October, 2000), which he later updated as the Clinton Liebrary Book 2001 Edition to include Election 2000, the post-election shennanigans, and related events through August, 2001. The 2001 edition is the only known literary source that conclusively shows why Bill Clinton pardoned Susan McDougal but not Webster Hubbel. It also presciently contains the Billary/Hillary Dueling Memoirs. At every opportunity he shamelessly promotes his books for orders on-line or by fax at www.ClintonLiebraryBook.Com. He's also the Librarian at the Clinton Liebrary (www.ClintonLiebrary.Com), which owns exclusive rights to Bill Clinton's most famous speech as well as Bill Clinton's comments after revelation of the identity of Deep Throat in 2005.

As an amateur scientist as well as a scientific amateur, he de-bunks the man-is-causing-Global "Warming" theory, and predicts that by the middle of the 21st Century (when he will be safely dead) physicists will discover the obvious flaws in Einstein's Theory of Relativity, which will lead to vastly-faster-than-light travel through polarization of gravity. As a constitutional-law scholar, he's trying to teach those who hold a static, zero-sum-game view of economic and social theories to understand that "property" is not a "thing" but rather is a human right.

Although he regularly teaches Continuing Legal Education courses to lawyers, he's too-often available through he Rubber Chicken Speakers Bureau to speak on politics, satire, etc., at luncheons, dinners, root canals, funerals, etc. His speaking fees are so outrageously high they border on criminal price-gouging, but as a free-market advocate, he defends his fees on the higher moral ground of charging whatever the traffic will bear.
