Barack Obama’s personal political action and propaganda organization, Organizing for America (OFA), serves as a quasi-government agency for the promotion of the Obama agenda under cover of the legal fiction that it is “a project of the Democratic National Committee.” OFA, which operated openly as the Obama presidential campaign organization until Election Day 2008, is still campaigning for Obama and is presently focused on getting Obamacare through the Congress in spite of the will of the people. Such is the way of the statists.
The greater part of OFA’s work is “perception management,” the creation of the perception that Obama and his programs enjoy the enthusiastic support of the American people.

But then, to paraphrase the President’s radical close friend and spiritual guide Rev. Jeremiah Wright, the chickens that are the grim reality of what it means to be ruled by Obama and his fellow statists came home to roost. No longer demoralized, the Republicans are returning to their conservative roots and spoiling for the fight against the statists. Read the rest of this entry »
