Commander-In-Chief Obama Has No Confidence in Military

Military Has No Confidence In Him

“We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”

Commander-In-Chief Barack Obama plans to be a destabilizing force in the American military. It is very easy to understand since the majority of military personnel will not vote for him this year. It is estimated that nearly 70% of the military will vote for John McCain. Indeed, while gifting individuals with the wealth of the rich (socialism), it behooves him to raise an army that will protect him and his supporters. That army will be composed of members from all citizens to police all citizens. However, such an army will not be raised in time to protect us from the looming Biden crisis. In addition, it will add over 1/2 billion dollars to Obama’s planned spending.

It seems that the longer you date an individual then the better able you are to detect his or her flaws. Obama’s flaws are dangerous to the well-being of the constitutional state, the military and the lives of American citizens. Obama says that we can not afford another 4 years of Bush. We can not afford Obama’s socialist economic policies, Marxist rhetoric in reply to those that confront and protest him or the development of a totalitarian police state made equal to our military.

In addition, as Commander-in-Chief, Obama will fundamentally change our military. He believes the “…structure of our armed forces will ultimately matter less than how we decide to use those forces.” (AH, 307) Obama condemns the invasion of Iraq yet endorses the U.N.’s evolving revolutionary doctrine of the right and duty to intervene in domestic affairs, globally and regionally.

Like the 2004 U.N. report on perceived new threats, Obama will make global development the first line of defense. According to Obama’s platform “We will rebuild our armed forces to meet the full spectrum of needs of the new century.” The US military will be restructured into a police force to protect American people, deal with various global “threats,” and carry out expanded humanitarian missions.

Barack Obama’s recent words to promote his image as Community Organizer in Chief were not about forming a paramilitary force of volunteer brown shirts. They were about turning America into one, giant, community organizer’s sandbox at enormous cost to taxpayers.

Senator Obama was nearly 17 minutes into his July 2 speech (yet another one where naming Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was required) in Colorado Springs, Colorado when he deviated from his pre-released script and performed without the teleprompter net saying,

"We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we've set. We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded." (emphasis added)

The FY 2008 Department of Defense (DoD) budget is about $482 billion. Obama has announced his intentions to cut “tens of billions of dollars in wasteful spending,” including $9 billion per month spent in Iraq and expenditures for the missile defense system, while increasing the force size of the Army and Marine Corps.

Let’s imagine “tens of billions” in cuts eventually adds up to a whopping $150 billion. That would be a near one-third cut in defense spending, taking the DoD budget down to $332 billion. Even in such an extreme case of DoD budget reduction, for his “civilian national security force” to be “just as well-funded” would mean funding his community service initiatives at an equivalent $332 billion.

Consequently, another $332 billion in addition to the Pentagon’s reduced budget of $332 billion equals a net increase of $182 billion in the annual federal budget, assuming we sponge-up the already existing expenditures for the relatively meager, by comparison, existing service programs he plans to expand. That’s $182,000,000,000 in new federal monies, and that means higher taxes.

In his entire life, Senator Obama has never managed an organization larger than a Senate staff, or that of a law school publication.
