Dallas, TX - -(Ammoland.com)-  The video that the late Andrew Breitbart released of Barack Obama during his Harvard days revealed one more link in the president’s early chain of associations with radicals.

But I watched a video a couple of weeks ago that I believe is far more incriminating for our president because it shows the present fallout from his radical agenda, including the redistribution of wealth.

Obama has been called the “food stamp president” because more federal grocery subsidies have been given out under his presidency than were under most others combined. But far more than that, this president is the sultan of socialist swing with his assault of federal government entitlement expansions (Obamacare), spending, accruing of national debt, interdictions, seizures, regulations, overreaches, unilateral legislation, czars, presidential orders, Chicago-style politics, etc., and he has the uncanny ability to make most people believe he’s doing none of them.

The Heritage Foundation has reported that the president has not only greatly expanded welfare but also “eliminated a program that aims to reduce the prevalence of single motherhood, one of the greatest contributors to poverty in the United States.”

Heritage further documented that President Obama’s 2011 budget increased total welfare spending to $953 billion, a 42 percent increase over welfare spending in 2008. And over the next decade, welfare spending is projected to cost taxpayers $10.3 trillion.

Worst of all is that rather than wean generations off government aid and create independent hardworking citizens, President Obama and his administration are further enabling and expanding the already mammoth movement of government-dependent citizens.

The infamous Judge Judy Sheindlin agrees. And she wants the government to know about it, as she recently told her courtroom and millions of people in her viewing audience.

Let me set the scene.
A female plaintiff was suing an ex-boyfriend for living with her for months and never paying a dime of rent even though he collected unemployment compensation, $437 a month from the county for rent and $22,000 a year of federal money for college tuition (though after watching this segment, even the biggest skeptic would question whether he even attended his classes).

When Judge Judy confronted the defendant for using taxpayers’ hard-earned money for things other than his rent — for which it was earmarked — he flippantly dodged any responsibility to help his former live-in girlfriend with rent by saying, “That’s what she was there for.” (That is, paying his rent.)

An increasingly upset Judge Judy retorted to the defendant: “I don’t even want to pay your rent. The government says I have to pay your rent.”

Judge Judy then asked him, “What do you do?”

He responded by laughing and saying almost mockingly, “I’m me.”

Obviously disgusted, Judge Judy turned to bailiff Petri Hawkins-Byrd and gave her commentary regarding what responsibility government bears in creating defendants such as the one standing before her: “That’s what we’re creating — a him.”

And just to clarify to whom she was referring, Judge Judy followed up her tirade against the subsidy-abusing defendant by categorically stating, “I’m sending this tape to Congress.” (Don’t worry, Judge Judy. We the people will help you send it to Washington and everywhere else via our email, Facebook, Twitter, etc.!)

That defendant reminded me of the woman who was excited four years ago to explain to a Florida news crew why she had voted for Obama: “I won’t have to worry about putting gas in my car. I won’t have to worry about paying my mortgage. … He’s going to help me.”

Watching the video of Judge Judy on YouTube, titled “Judge Judy and the welfare state expanded under Obama,” is well worth the seven minutes of your time, if you can stomach the surprising and pathetic cliffhanger ending.

Now we know what President Obama meant by “hope and change.” He clearly stated that goal and mission from the outset of his election: “fundamentally transform America.”

As a billboard outside Clovis, N.M., which was “paid for by a Vietnam vet who is still fighting for his country,” explains, “so now we know … ‘change’ equals more debt, more taxes, more welfare, more regulation, more government, more wasteful spending, more corruption.”

And all of Obama’s big-government expansion is creating more government-dependent citizens who feel more and more entitled to siphon all the federal, state, county and city subsidies that they can get.

All of these socialist tendencies make me want to get the bumper sticker I saw the other day that has a picture of coins all over it and the words “I’ll keep my God, my guns, my freedom, and my money. You keep the change.”

Is this the type of hope and change you were counting on with the Obama administration? (And to think, nearly 40 percent of Americans still want to re-elect him for another four years!) It all smells to me like more BO (Barack Obama).

If you’re ready for real reform and bold solutions for our welfare state, then you’ll love former speaker of the House and current GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich’s plan, “Unleashing Growth and Innovation to Move Beyond the Welfare State.”

Growth and innovation means liberating the poor from the trap of the welfare empire through new programs that are tailored to local communities, promote work and incentivize lifelong study. Building on the success of the 1996 welfare reforms, block-granting all federal means-tested welfare programs back to the states would help millions move from dependency to prosperity while saving taxpayers trillions.

Thomas Jefferson summarized my views, as well as those of most patriots I know, in a prospectus for his translation of Destutt de Tracy’s

“A Treatise on Political Economy”: “To take from one, because it is thought that his own industry and that of his fathers has acquired too much, in order to spare to others, who, or whose fathers have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association, ‘the guarantee to every one of a free exercise of his industry, & the fruits acquired by it.’”

    1. Thanks for the write up. great work.

    2. I was really liking what you had to say Mr Norris until you said two words…. Newt Gingrich…. I am going to hate being wrong all the way from Argentina (which is where I am moving) when Newt gets elected and dishes out his own brand of change but in a Republican package… both BO and Newt serve the same master..

      YouTube pulled the video saying it was hate speech related, another site states that CBS said it infringed on copyright laws. It is censorship plain and simple the truth is out there but the liberal media does not want you to see it. I just wished that I would of downloaded the video.
