Obama is not merely the presiding instrument of American decline, he is the architect of American decline. He wants Americans to consume less, and he would like to see our standard of living decline relative to that of other nations.
He seeks a diminished footprint for America in the world. He detests America’s traditional allies, like Britain and Israel, and seeks to weaken them; he is not very worried about radical Muslims acquiring a nuclear bomb or coming to power in countries like Tunisia and Egypt. He is quite willing to saddle future generations of Americans with crippling debt; he has spent trillions of dollars toward this end, and if he had been permitted, he would have spent trillions more.to be downsized. He wants Americans to consume less, and he would like to see our standard of living decline relative to that of other nations.
He has shown no inclination, and has no desire, to protect America’s position as number one in the world; he would be content to see America as number 18, or number 67, just another country seated at the great dining table of nations. The strength of my thesis is that it is completely congruent with who Obama is and what he does. We don’t have to assume that he is always getting results opposite to what he intends; we simply have to see that he intends the results he is getting.
He emphasized in his inauguration speech his goal of “remaking America”-and he is doing it, recognizing that in order to remake America he must first unmake America.
