Thomas Sowell: Obama “Dismantling” Democracy Much Like Hitler Did
Conservative writer Thomas Sowell asks if we’re on “a slippery slope to tyranny,” and begins by invoking Hitler.
When Adolf Hitler was building up the Nazi movement in the 1920s, leading up to his taking power in the 1930s, he deliberately sought to activate people who did not normally pay much attention to politics.
Sowell mentions Hitler’s “useful idiots,” unthinking supporters that he believes are much like Obama’s base.
In our times, American democracy is being dismantled, piece by piece, before our very eyes by the current administration in Washington, and few people seem to be concerned about it.
Sowell also has a problem with Obama “extracting large sums of money from a private enterprise to distribute as sees fit,” something that isn’t quite what is happening, and then signals his view that Obama doesn’t believe in constitutional government.
With vastly expanded powers of government available at the discretion of politicians and bureaucrats, private individuals and organizations can be forced into accepting the imposition of powers that were never granted to the government by the Constitution.
If you believe that the end justifies the means, then you don’t believe in constitutional government.
