Obama`s First 100 Days—Amnesty Will Just Be The Start

Undeniably, a powerful tide is running
for the Democratic Party, with one week left to Election

Bush`s approval rating is 27 percent,
just above Richard Nixon`s

nadir and almost down to Carter-Truman
lows. After each of those presidents reached their
floors—in 1952, 1974, 1980—the opposition party captured
the White House.

Moreover, 80 percent to 90 percent of
Americans think the nation is on the wrong course, and
since mid-September, when McCain was still slightly
the Dow has lost 4,000 points
—$5 trillion to $6
trillion in value.

Leading now by eight points in an
average of national polls, Barack Obama has other

Not a single blue state is regarded as
imperiled or even a toss-up, while Obama leads in six
crucial red states: Florida, North Carolina, Virginia,
Ohio, Missouri and Colorado. Should McCain lose one of
the six, he would have to win Pennsylvania to compensate
for the lost electoral votes. But the latest
Pennsylvania polls show Barack with a double-digit lead.

Lately moving into the toss-up
category are Nevada, North Dakota, Montana and Indiana.
All voted twice for George W. Bush.

Not only is Obama ahead in the state
and national polls, he has more money, is running far
more ads, has a superior organization on the ground,
attracts larger crowds, and has greater enthusiasm and
more media in camp. And new voter registrations heavily
favor the Democrats.

Though Congress is regarded by
Americans with a disdain bordering on disgust—five of
six Americans think it has done a poor job—Democratic
majorities are certain to grow. Indeed, with Democrats
favored by 10 points over Republicans, Nancy Pelosi`s
majority could grow by 25 seats and Harry Reid could
find himself with a filibuster-proof majority of 60

Democrats already have 49, plus two
independents: Socialist Bernie Sanders and Independent
Joe Lieberman. Their challengers are now ahead in New
Hampshire, Virginia, North Carolina, New Mexico,
Minnesota, Oregon and Colorado, with a chance of picking
up Georgia, Alaska, Kentucky and Mississippi.

We may be looking at a reverse of
1980, when Reagan won a 10-point victory over Jimmy
Carter, and Republicans took the Senate and, working

, effective control of the

With his tax cuts, defense buildup and
rollback policy against the
"Evil Empire,"
Reagan gave us some of the best years of our lives,
culminating in America`s epochal victory in the Cold

What does the triumvirate of
Obama-Pelosi-Reid offer?

Rep. Barney Frank is calling for new
tax hikes on the most successful and a 25 percent
across-the-board slash in national defense. Sen. John
Kerry is talking up new and massive federal spending, a
la FDR`s New Deal. Specifically, we can almost surely

  • Swift amnesty for

    12 million to 20 million illegal aliens
    and a
    drive to make them citizens and register them,

    as in the Bill Clinton years.
    This will mean
    that Nevada, Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona will

    move out of reach for GOP presidential candidates
    as has California.

  • Border security
    will go on the backburner, and
    America will have a virtual open border with a
    Mexico of 110 million.

  • Taxes will be raised on the top 5
    percent of wage-earners, who now carry

    60 percent of the U.S. income tax burden
    , and
    tens of millions of checks will be sent out to the
    40 percent of wage-earners who pay no federal income
    tax. Like the man said, redistribute the wealth,
    spread it around.

  • Social Security taxes will be
    raised on the most successful among us, and capital
    gains taxes will be raised from 15 percent to 20
    percent. The Bush tax cuts will be repealed, and
    death taxes reimposed.

  • Two or three more liberal
    activists of the

    Ruth Bader Ginsburg
    -John Paul Stevens stripe
    will be named to the Supreme Court. U.S. district
    and appellate courts will be stacked with

  • Special protections for
    homosexuals will be written into all civil rights
    laws, and
    gays and lesbians in the military
    will be
    invited to come out of the closet.
    "Don`t ask,
    don`t tell"
    will be dead.

  • The

    homosexual marriages
    that state judges have
    forced California, Massachusetts and Connecticut to
    recognize, an Obama Congress or Obama court will
    require all 50 states to recognize.

  • A
    "Freedom of
    Choice Act"
    nullifying all state restrictions on
    abortions will be enacted. America will become the
    most pro-abortion nation on earth.

  • Affirmative action
    —hiring and promotions based
    on race, sex and sexual orientation until specified
    quotas are reached—will be rigorously enforced
    throughout the U.S. government and private sector.

  • Universal health insurance will be
    enacted, covering

    legal and illegal immigrants,
    providing another
    powerful magnet for the world to come to America, if
    necessary by breaching her borders.

  • A federal bailout of states and
    municipalities to keep state and local governments
    spending up could come in December or early next

  • The first trillion-dollar deficit
    will be run in the first year of an Obama
    presidency. It will be the first of many.

Welcome to Obamaland!
