The Obama Campaign’s New Flag Emblem Speaks Volumes
You just can’t make this stuff up.
Note how the 50 stars have vanished, symbolizing the end of federalism. Evidently, there is no more need for those 50 laboratories trying different approaches to individual freedom and prosperity for their citizens. The wisdom of Obama is all we need, you see.
No more Illinois vs Indiana economic/regulatory models to compare. Or California vs Texas. Or even New York vs New Jersey. All we need is the supervision and sanctimony of Obama’s central planners deciding everything for us.
Our old pals Tom Friedman and Ray LaHood must surely love this flag emblem since we know they both envy the Chinese central government’s dictatorial powers. They do have local governance in China, but everybody knows who’s boss. That’s what attracts Tom and Ray. And that’s what makes this new flag emblem an appropriate symbol for the appalling future that the Left is creating for America.
Today, of course, Obama still has to deal with pesky governors like Brewer (AZ), Scott (FL), Daniels (IN), Jindal (LA), Christie (NJ), Martinez (NM), Kasich (OH), Haley (SC), Perry (TX), McDonnell (VA), and Walker (WI). We know he laments how difficult the founders, the Constitution, and these governors have made it for him to bring “change to America.”
Oh, those awful founders … why couldn’t they have foreseen the arrival of the Dear Leader, Barack Obama?
Actually, of course, they did foresee it — that’s why we have the Constitution’s enumerated powers and a 10th Amendment. But Obama promises to keep trying to bring “change to America”, and this new flag is the perfect symbol of what he intends to do with the 10th Amendment.
Note also in the emblem how the 13 bold strips have faded into a blurry 9. That’s an aptly chosen metaphor for the fading memory of our founding history and Constitution, as the mal-education of our nation’s youth marches on toward progressivism, redistributionism, statism, collectivism, socialism, fascism, neo-Maxism, or whatever other ‘ism’ name one chooses to represent what the Left is currently proffering.
That’s a lot for one new emblem to represent, but the Obama campaign did it! Kudos to Obama and his campaign staff for jamming all these great Leftist themes and objectives into one symbol.
