If I were an organization with long-term plans for conquering or destroying a country I would seek out an obscure, bright young man from an ethnic group that would guarantee loyalty strictly based on his membership. I would shepherd him through life and provide an education fit for royalty then set him up as a leader in that country.
If I were that duly elected leader I would begin, immediately, filling regulatory posts, some specially created, with friends of questionable character and limited knowledge, but like-minded. I would empty the treasury as quickly as possible, sell my soul to foreign dictators, kiss the, er, ring of despots and apologize to them for, in the past, not allowing them to rule the world. I would be very friendly toward he second most populous ethnic group in the country. Never mind that most of them are illegal and cannot vote. That is just a minor obstacle.
If a situation calls for it, I would show that I am perfectly capable of using the tough talk
gutter language that helps to inflate my self-esteem, but in the meantime I would continue using the honey coated hot air with jutting jaw and raised finger that got me elected. While dismantling the auto, banking and oil industry I would be using my election as a mandate to prove that I know what is best for everyone.
I would remember my friends, the oppressed unions, who have been treated so unfairly by allowing members a secret vote. I would return to the old ways of debate with ball bats and lead pipes so they might increase their membership. Remember, I do know what is best for everyone.
And don’t even mention “Tort Reform”! Imagine how many of my friends, the defenders of insurance fraud and frivolous lawsuits, would have their incomes reduced to just a couple million $ a year.
A blessing from the Gulf would give me the opportunity to destroy states one at a time. First Louisiana then Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia and Florida by making them “safe” from the dangers of oil wells.
God is great!
Now, IF I could just figure a way to keep all those anti-socialist conservative troublemakers from voting in November-----!
