The bright side of Obama?

I've heard it said that Obama is the greatest gun salesman in history.

I am beginning to wonder if he's not also the greatest recruiter for liberty of all kinds, as well.

Talking with someone yesterday I recognized a theme I have heard a few times from some unexpected places. People who were "Tea Party", quas-libertarian types becoming more firmly libertarian, or even, dare I say it, anarchist- due to things Obama and his cronies have done, and attempted to do. For them the shine seems to be gone from the Tea Party notion of electing "the right people"- at least for now.

Would I be seeing the same if the other, completely interchangeable, statist monster had won the last election? I don't know. It may be that the mess created by ignoring reality and Natural Law has finally gotten to the point that no matter which tyrant sits at the desk and plots to violate you, the results will be the same, and some people are beginning to see it.

I know there are a lot of people who will continue to support what they have convinced themselves is "their side" even as the fangs pump the poison into their flesh, and no amount of reality is going to change their minds. But, for some of those willing and able to see the truth, it just may be that Obama was the kick in the pants they needed.

At least, I hope so. I'd like to be able to see a bright side to Obama (besides the fact he hasn't been able to do most of the worst things he wants to do).

Now, I hope most of these people don't revert back to their old ways and support the next candidate who promises to be the Anti-Obama... I'll do my best to help them stay strong if they feel tempted.

  1. I think Edison was the one who said he achieved success in development of light bulbs by discovering all the ways they would not work. Paul Rosenberg had a good article outlining hope of statists that someday, somehow, collectivism -- civil government -- will finally "work". He starts out quoting Einstein: "...insanity is doing the same thing over and over and over, always expecting a different result..."

    So perhaps Obama has been a good thing for anarchy. The promoters who were so excited at the triumph of social engineering in putting a "black wizard" in position are discovering he's as full of thievery and chicanery as all those others in history.

    Inverse discovery is a terrible but thorough educator.
