With the stock market dropping further and further into sub-10K levels, and Obama bringing about a new America by hiring a former Clinton staffer, it's starting to look like America is caught in some kind of time warp during the boring 90s. A cursory examination of President Elect Obama's new website [Change.Gov], shows an agenda that is riddled with far-left policies from the Clinton era including:
Gun Control: They also support making the expired federal Assault Weapons Ban permanent, as such weapons belong on foreign battlefields and not on our streets.
Drastically increasing the minimum wage: As president, Obama will raise the minimum wage to $9.50 an hour by 2011 and index it to inflation so full-time workers can earn a living wage that allows them to raise their families and pay for basic needs such as food, transportation, and housing – things so many people take for granted.
Messing With NAFTA: Obama and Biden believe that NAFTA and its potential were oversold to the American people. They will work with the leaders of Canada and Mexico to fix NAFTA so that it works for American workers.
Remember when millions of Americans who work for a living had to unite under the NRA lobby to prevent gun control weenies from labeling them a bunch of brain-dead, violent hicks? Remember the whole "living wage" debate in the mid-90s designed to cripple small businesses? Remember the anti-free trade movement which culminated in the destruction of downtown Seattle circa 1999? Like my mother said, it's deja vu all over again! Someone bust out Season 2 of Friends.
