Government Control of Private Enterprise Part of White House War on Americans

By Bill Wilson

In an interview with C-SPAN, the man who occupies the Oval Office (OOO) was asked at "what point do we (the US) run out of money? OOO replied:
"Well, we are out of money now. We are operating in deep deficits, not caused by any decisions we've made on health care so far. This is a consequence of the crisis that we've seen and in fact our failure to make some good decisions on health care over the last several decades. So we've got a short-term problem, which is we had to spend a lot of money to salvage our financial system, we had to deal with the auto companies, a huge recession which drains tax revenue at the same time it's putting more pressure on governments to provide unemployment insurance or make sure that food stamps are available for people who have been laid off."
OOO continues to blame all the problems of America on "the last several decades." And his answer to fixing these problems is to "spend a lot of money." And, of course, he says in the interview that...
"we are trying to help an auto industry that is going through a combination of bad decision making over many years and an unprecedented crisis or at least a crisis we haven't seen since the 1930's. And you know the economy is going to bounce back and we want to get out of the business of helping auto companies as quickly as we can. I have got more enough to do without that. In the same way that I want to get out of the business of helping banks, but we have to make some strategic decisions about strategic industries..."
But actions speak louder than words, and the actions show that the government will not be out of the banking, mortgage and automobile businesses anytime soon. Case in point is the sad tale of George Joseph of Melbourne, Florida. Joseph owns a Dodge dealership there - at least he did until the government came and told him he had to close his doors and give his business of 35 years to another dealership. In a letter to the editor, Joseph says,
"On Thursday, May 14, 2009 I was notified that my Dodge franchise, that we purchased, will be taken away from my family on June 9, 2009 without compensation and given to another dealer at no cost to them."
Joseph recently renovated the dealership at Chrysler's insistence, incurring a multi-million dollar debt with a Sun Trust Bank mortgage.

Joseph asks in his letter to the editor,
"How in the United States of America can this happen? My business is being stolen from me through no fault of our own. We did nothing wrong."
What distinguishes America from banana republics is the rule of law derived from the Bible. But the laws are now suspended, the Constitution laid waste and the people have fallen prey to a deceptive tongue. Proverbs 26:28 says,
"A lying tongue hates those that are afflicted by it; and a flattering mouth works ruin."
In the London Telegraph Gerald Warner writes,
"Never in the history of the United States has a president worked so actively against the interests of his own people. . .His only enemies are fellow Americans."
If foreigners are beginning to see it, when will Americans open their eyes?
