If the coronavirus outbreak had occurred during the Obama administration, with Rahm Emanuel’s policy of “never letting a crisis go to waste” being the controlling factor in the Obama government’s response, that administration would have willingly and quickly declared a national emergency which would have brought the nation to a standstill and would have allowed the federal government to deny all constitutional rights to American citizens, would have looted the private sector of it’s property and denied American citizens the jobs that the private sector provides.
Donald Trump, on the other hand, has reluctantly declared a national emergency because of the coronavirus, but he has withheld full implementation and government control of his order so as to allow the 50 states to provide for their citizens and solve their unique local problems, while the federal government stands by to provide help as needed by the states. Because of President Trump’s reluctance to impose the power of the federal government on the citizens of the United States and on the state governments, we can be assured that he will obey the constitution and withdraw from the scene, and release all federally imposed controls, as soon as the emergency has run its course and things are back to normal.
The Obama administration, being a radical left, big government bunch of Democrats, would have fully extended the power of the federal government and would have closed all financial institutions and ordered the military to take control of the streets of America, assuring that everyone would cower in their homes, and the order would likely demand that anyone caught with a weapon would be arrested and imprisoned for suspicion of terrorism. This policy implementation would also have included commandeering all private corporations to do the bidding of the government. As evidence of this sort of thing happening, one must remember the government takeover of General Motors early on in the Obama administration, when GM became insolvent, and that financial emergency was slight compared to what the nation is going through with the coronavirus and the subsequent deep drop of the stock market. With the GM precedent under it’s belt, it would be logical that the Obama administration would then nationalize Ford, Chrysler, John Deere, Amazon and all other industries they deemed necessary for their leftist ends.
Of course, to Democrats, any financial setback is the fault of the “greedy” Wall Street crowd and their pals in the “corrupt” banks, so, after declaring a national emergency, they would also have to halt all financial trading and assume the role of rulers over the entire American economic community. And given, that in the opinion of the radical left, no one but a radical leftist knows anything about running a nation’s economic and financial business, title would likely revert to the government for all private corporate institutions, just as the GM corporation was given to a leftist bunch of Democrat-dominated labor unions, and the private, individual investor bond holders of General Motors were denied compensation for the investments they made in the company with their private funds, as the entire corporation was awarded to the unions, in a politically structured bankruptcy order.
And if anyone thinks that any “crisis”, once declared by a Democrat, would be limited to giving aid to needful financial institutions and the owners of hurting businesses across America, they don’t realize the full scheming nature of today’s Democrat party. The Green New Deal, already fully planned and just waiting for the next Democrat administration to take office so the scheme could be fully implemented, would be fully imposed on America and it’s citizens, with Global Warming being identified as the reason that gasoline would no longer be refined and sold to the public, airline travel would be halted completely, truck traffic would be prohibited on Interstate highways, guns would be forcibly removed from the hands of all private citizens, our nation’s borders would be completely opened to all of the poor and sick people of the world, and Castro-like prisons would be filled with anyone deemed a threat to a quick resolution of the “crisis” that the Democrat president had declared, with the prisons being emptied of the convicted criminals currently imprisoned there in order to free up space for the newly identified criminals who oppose the destruction of America’s constitution.
American citizens are seeing, live and up close, the difference between a president, like Donald Trump, who respects and abides by the constitution, and the big-government actions any of the current Democrat candidates for president would take under these same circumstances. We must never trust a Democrat in a position of power again.
