Do The 2016 Elections Even Matter?

As we get deeper and deeper into the 2016 election season, things are getting to be more and more of a mess.

As so often happens, the campaign is becoming less and less about which candidate can convince us that they can do the best job of being President and Commander in Chief and more and more about mudslinging.

Trump’s campaign has never really been about policy and issues, but rather about a charismatic candidate that knows how to attract the masses (much like Obama’s). Bernie has been all about making promises to give his constituents more and more freebies. Then there’s Hillary, who has been all about her ego. Cruz has tried to keep on track, but even he has been dragged into the mud, along with everyone else.

But in truth, I’m not sure that any of that matters. I say that because I’m not totally convinced that we’re going to have elections in November. Or if we do, whether the winner will be allowed to take their seat in the Oval Office. In other words, I’m not sure that Obama is going to leave.

There have been hints from the White House that Obama wants to stay. He’s even gone so far as to publicly say that he wants to serve a third term. I’m not talking about his press secretary saying that, but Obama himself. He is so convinced that he is the best president that this nation has ever had, that he probably feels that it is his duty to stay and finish the work of transformation that he’s started.

We have to remember that beneath it all, Obama is a narcissist. He doesn’t care about anyone, except maybe Michelle and the girls. But since we don’t know what goes on behind closed doors, I wouldn’t even count on that. Everything is about him and he likes it that way. Terrorist attacks, wars and other serious issues that should occupy the mind of the Chief Executive all play second fiddle to such grave matters as his golf game and partying with celebrities.

This is made clear in how he deals with these situations. How many times have we seen him leave his golf game for a minute, in order to make some poorly thought out comments on a disastrous situation, and then go right back to swinging his club? If there is any way to show his lack of caring, more clear than that, I don’t know what it is.

Yet while he studiously ignores national security, the plight of Americans out of work, the stagnant economy, and the disaster called Obamacare, he continues lying about how much better off the country is under his rule. Like I said, he’s out of touch with reality, and that’s putting it nicely.

In this, his last legal year as president, Obama has become all about his legacy. More than anything, he wants to make sure that the history books treat him well and show how great a man he thinks he is. His agreement with Iran and his recent trip to Cuba are all about this. He doesn’t care if it does any good. He doesn’t even care if it hurts the country. He just cares that future generations are able to look back and see what a great man he thinks he was and what great things he thinks he did.

This is the man we have in the White House, and have had there for the last seven years. He has ignored his oath of office since day one. Focusing instead on doing what he wants to, furthering his ideology, helping his friends, furthering Islam, causing racial division and destroying this once great land. Then he lies to us, selectively using facts and figures, even if he has to have people change them, to prove that he is doing good for the country.

It must be a fun game to be king; especially if you’re a king who doesn’t care about the people. Caring about the people is boring; it might cause you to take action for their benefit. It’s much more fun to take action on your preconceived ideas and ideology, rather than doing anything that truly makes a difference.

Of course, there are those who think he has made a difference. I even know some of them. Mostly, they are too lazy to work and are thrilled to have a president who is bent on wealth redistribution. After all, that’s better than getting up in the morning and having to go to work.

But it’s this narcissistic thinking that makes Obama so dangerous, especially when it is coupled by his disconnect from reality. He is, quite literally, likely to do anything, even things he says that he can’t do.

Just look at the executive amnesty that he’s given to illegal aliens. Even though he was quoted as having publicly said more than 20 times that he couldn’t do it, he went ahead and did it anyway. He has shown so little regard for the law and become so lawless, that he is likely to do just about anything, regardless of what the law says. He clearly doesn’t care anymore about the law.

All he does is create an appearance of doing things lawfully. That’s what his “executive actions” are supposed to do. He is saying that he has authority to do things that the Constitution doesn’t allow him to have authority over, and covering it by signing a document that supposedly makes it law. Like the documents that he’s signed, giving himself and some of his key cabinet members the right to declare martial law at any time. The Constitution doesn’t allow that; nor does any other law passed by Congress. But as it is right now, he has given himself that authority. Now, why do you think he’s done that?

Here’s my concern. Obama might be crazy, but the line between crazy and genius is often a fine one. Just look at Hitler. He was both crazy and a genius at the same time. Obama might just be the same sort. So it’s quite conceivable that he signed those executive orders because he was expecting to use them. It’s even conceivable that he did so in advance, just to hide them in the smoke and clutter. That way, if they had been challenged, it would be when nothing was happening to concern people.

But What Would Happen if He Declared Martial Law?

Supposedly martial law is something the military declares to protect the people, when the government can’t do its job. But in recent times, it has been something that politicians declare, to protect themselves from the people. I can assure you, if Obama declares martial law, it will be to protect himself, even if he tries to make it look like he’s trying to protect the people.

That will be very easy for him to arrange. He’s got the #BlackLivesMatter people at his beck and call, as well as lots of radical Muslims. He could use either group, or both, to social unrest and violence, to the point where it looks like declaring martial law is the only thing he can do to protect the country. Then, with martial law in place, he can suspend the elections or the change in office, or even suspend the Constitution in its entirety, sending Congress home.

It is interesting to note, at least from a purely intellectual side, that martial law has been used as the excuse to put many dictators in power. Once in power, they eliminated all opposition and any of the laws of their country that were an inconvenience to them. Once that was done, they were able to do as they pleased.

Obama has fired or caused to retire over 200 flag officers (admirals and generals), all but decapitating the military. He’s then used the military as his own personal social experiment, destroying combat effectiveness by putting the LGBT agenda first. He’s infiltrated supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood into sensitive posts in the government, especially in the Department of Homeland Security. If it wasn’t so sad, that would sound like a bad joke; putting members of a known terrorist group in charge of the security of the nation.

Many of Obama’s initiatives, especially those done by executive order, have served to weaken our country. As if we didn’t have enough people in need of assistance, he’s flooded the country with illegal aliens and Muslims, putting an incredible strain on both our economy and our national security. It is clear that we are nowhere near as secure today as we were seven years ago. It is also clear that the lawlessness that he has brought into the White House has not served the American people.

Looking at that, along with everything else he’s done, it’s not inconceivable that Obama will declare martial law, just so that he can stay in office, rather than relinquish his office to another. That’s especially true if a Republican or even a right-leaning independent were to win the election to become our country’s next president.

I am quite sure that if Obama does declare martial law, he will believe that he is doing so for the best interest of the country. The problem is, he thinks that he is the best for our country. It doesn’t matter what anybody else thinks, his voice is the only one he can hear.

So I ask you, do the 2016 elections really matter, or is Obama going to do what he wants and stay in office anyway?

  • This election absolutely does matter because of the long term effect of whichever appointments are made to the Supreme Court. If Hillary wins, we can pretty much kiss the Constitution goodbye. A majority of young progressive activist justices will stretch the Constitution to the breaking point in directions it was never meant to go and shrink the Bill of Rights to insignificance.
    That is the issue of the most significance in America right now. I work for the Dept. of Defense and am in contact with many senior officers. They have told me in no uncertain terms that a declaration of Martial law by Obama as a political manipulation would be considered an unlawful order and ignored by our military. Any general officer who tried to enforce such an order would be subject to a court martial.

  • “I am quite sure that if Obama does declare martial law, he will believe that he is doing so for the best interest of the country.” I couldn’t disagree more. He knows fully well what his policies are doing to our economy, our institutions, our morality, our security, our survival as a Constitutional Republic, and he’ll do whatever he thinks he can get away with. Oh yes, he knows full well.

  • Wow! I truly believe you are right on and pray you are not.
