Here’s a hypothetical situation…
After retaking the Congress in 2010, the GOP stalled the Obama Agenda, saving the nation from economic collapse. In 2012, Obama follows Jimmy Carter onto the ash-heap of failed Presidents. With a Conservative controlled Congress and White House, the new administration begins to make the hard cuts to reverse the damage caused by Obama, Pelosi, and Reid.
As the agenda of tax cuts for everyone, cuts to unconstitutional programs that do not work, and the complete repeal and replacement of ObamaCare works its way through Congress, a small portion of the population decided to stop it. The SEIU, Organizing for America, Move on, Think Progress, and a host of other leftist groups stated their intent to shut down the country in the GOP passes it’s agenda-the will of the people be damned.
Could that happen here? While I think most of us think that it could, it is already being planned in the UK.
Unions last night warned they were joining forces for a series of co-ordinated strikes that will bring Britain to a juddering halt.
By working together for maximum impact, they said the country would be crippled by strikes, civil disobedience and other forms of peaceful protest against Government cuts.
Two union giants – the Public and Commercial Services Union and Unison, with a combined membership of 1.7million – will this week sign a deal to co-ordinate the action.
And Mark Serwotka, general secretary of the PCS, has written to other union bosses urging them to join.
He said he had received ‘very positive’ feedback so far and warned of ‘a campaign of resistance the likes of which we will not have seen in this country for decades’.
Plans include anything from holding sit-down protests on motorways to massive strikes against job cuts, pay freezes and changes to pensions.
Ladies in gentlemen, this is the left. If they are in power, they will ram what they want down your throat, and dissent is equated with hate. Then, when they are out of power, they will make threats and try to intimidate people into not limiting their power. Dissent magically becomes acceptable again. In other words, if you don’t do what they want, it’s tantrum time.
Might they cause a crisis to prevent passage of a Conservative agenda? Yes they can!
