Like ancient Rome, we have replaced our republic with a Julius Caesar, a megalomaniac dictator Caligula, a Nero who not only fiddles while America burns but also fuels the cremation of our Constitution, Bill of Rights, free market system, and individual liberties in a thousand different ways.
President Obama is either a knave or a fool. Whichever he is, Obama like Jagland follows in the footsteps of Norway's Vidkun Quisling, who sold out his country to a European socialist ruler, in Quisling's case to Adolf Hitler.
Rome somehow survived Julius Caesar, Caligula, and Nero. The United States as a sweet land of liberty will probably not survive Emperor Barack Hussein Obama.
