The decision not to recall the governor of Wisconsin, Scott Walker, shows President Obama as the man of the destructive principle. Read more:

Three days ago we had 2012 Jun 07 Obama portrays himself as a tough guy, and there it was about Antichrist being a man who so to speak accelerates disintegration, who pays homage to the destructive principle, who is not building up but is active destructively. And yesterday I read an article that gives details about this destructiveness of Obama and of the people supporting him and I am now going to quote from this article:

States across the nation are wrestling with multi-billion budget deficits, municipalities are in danger of declaring bankruptcy largely because of mammoth pension obligations to retired public sector workers.

For example, in the City of San Jose, in the heart of California's Silicon Valley, pension costs have more than tripled over the last decade alone to a quarter of a billion dollars, or a quarter of the city's annual budget.

The status quo is simply unsustainable. And in a comparatively low-profile local election this past Tuesday, voters decided to opt for pension reform by an overwhelming and bipartisan 70% margin. That measure wasn't pushed by a conservative ideologue but a Democratic mayor.

Governors and mayors across the country will look at these votes and decide that they can take on powerful public sector unions and not just survive but possibly be rewarded for their political courage.

There is a pragmatic rather than partisan reason for this plan of action states and cities cannot simply tax or cut their way out of their growing budget deficits.

The problem is structural: sweetheart deals made with unions decades ago as a way of suing for peace. But now, with the retirement of the baby boom generation, the bill is coming due and too many cities are paying more for retired workers than people actually on the job.

This destructive principle of growing budget deficits, which is supported by Obama, was highlighted on the 5th of June 2012 where a decision had to be made about a demand for a recall of the governor of Wisconsin, Scott Walker, who dared to take action against this destructive principle. Even workers voted in large numbers against this recall.

Here another quote:

In the end, the incumbent was returned with even more votes than he was initially elected in 2010, amid record turnout. He won middle class voters and even one-third of union households, a dynamic which Democratic strategist Paul Begala memorably described as "a chicken voting for Colonel Sanders."

Out of international perspective this was also not only a vote against Obama but also a vote for Mrs Merkel.

Obama pays tribute to the destructive principle and so do all his supporters and this was now highlighted on this Tuesday for everyone to see.

And Jesus says, but can ye not discern the signs of the times? Matthew 16:3.
