From behind his curtain of secrecy President Obama controls the ropes of power, pulling the levers and pushing the buttons of illegality and unconstitutional authority.
His Administration’s every action and his words are designed to manipulate and deceive the American public and to create a massive voting block that will believe and support his Emerald City.
After five years as our President he remains largely like the fictitious Oz; hidden, mysterious and protected by legions of stooges and advocates who bend the regulations of a massive bureaucracy to perpetuate his fantasies.
The President’s “I-first-heard-about-it-in-the-newspaper” posturing serves his secrecy well by keeping him behind the curtain of mystique. His front woman, Kathleen Sebelius, an equally deceptive and skilled lieutenant, has been enlisted to create and execute the thousands of pages of regulation necessary to prosecute their health care blueprint.
Meet the Wicked Witch of the East
Kathleen Sebelius has become our wicked witch of the eastern elite serving up her craft with arrogance and contempt for the American people. She sits atop the mountain of Obama Care interpreting and enforcing its myriad regulations, most of which is still being written on the fly. She is the watching witch over Obama’s Land of Oz, commanding power over the very lives of the electorate through the massive administration of national health care.
At her disposal are hordes of flying monkeys. These are the winged monkeys of bureaucracy, residing in the vast forests of Obama’s Oz, waiting for the wicked witch to command them to do her and his bidding. This is the Internal Revenue Service, the enforcer of each and every precept of Obama Care.
Sebelius and Obama have co-opted the view that they can overpower those they deem weak, inattentive and incapable of self-governance. She has become the wicked witch of health care tyranny.
The Secretary has been given unbridled powers over each of us. She is empowered by Oz to craft policy and concoct potions that can literally decide who should receive what type of health care (or not), when it is to be received (or not) and under what circumstances (if ever) and at what price (redistribution of wealth).
Equally sinister to Obama in every way, she commands the administrative hoards that comprise Obama’s Emerald City of hope, bringing the kind of change to America never before seen.
We are but Munchkins
The electorate are simply the little people, American Munchkins, who are clearly too small and inept to care for ourselves. The blue slippers of freedom and liberty are no longer on our feet…they belong to our wicked witch of the east…Kathleen Sebelius. She wore the blue slippers before Congress showing them off proudly, arrogantly and defiantly…full of contempt for liberty in the land of Obama’s Oz.
Of course, the story would not be complete without mentioning that we have our Scarecrow (Senator John McCain, AZ), our Tin Man (Mitch McConnell, KY), and most importantly our Cowardly Lion (Speaker John Boehner, OH). Like the frightened, heartless and cowardly leaders they are, these stalwarts of Washington culture, cronyism and power bumble their way through the Emerald City each day making a complete spectacle of themselves.
Our Brain, Heart and Courage is not Found in the Emerald City
America today is not too unlike the story of the Wizard of Oz where millions of Munchkins and their weak-kneed Scarecrows, Tin Men and Cowardly Lions believe we must rely upon them, their positions of power and the might of the Emerald City and its Oz, Barack Obama. After all, without such reliance who will supply us our brain, heart, and courage?
Barack Obama, the aloof Wizard (in the movie he’s a flaming head…fitting!) of the Emerald City of Washington, D.C. and his wicked witch Kathleen Sebelius have positioned themselves as the grantors of wishes to millions of Americans who have embraced their illusions and trickery, believing them to be reality.
After all, Oz knows best. Oz is smart, cool and has the regal right to the throne of power. Just make your way to the Emerald City and you’ll be granted your wishes. Need some brains, come to Oz. Want heart, hold out your hand to the Emerald City, short on courage, let the promises of Obama’s Land of Oz give you strength from the welfare state. If we object the wicked witch will punish us with more of her evil spells.
Our brains, heart and courage are not found in the Emerald City of Washington, D.C., they are found in the precepts of the constitution. The unalienable rights are not granted by Obama, Sebelius and the caretakers of the Emerald City, they are bestowed upon us by the Creator and as such cannot be diminished or removed by the government of man.
We have a Toto, Sniffing out the Deception, Exposing Oz
Like Dorothy, we have awakened to discover it’s all a lie…a great big lie. There is no Yellow Brick Road to the Emerald City. The Emerald City doesn’t exist. Oz is a fabricated caricature. Even the Wicked Witch is not real and her self-proclaimed power is self-generated.
We are finally, after five years of dreaming, clearing our foggy eyes to discover that we have a Toto, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), and he has pulled back the curtain and exposed Oz for the statist and Marxist that he is and his plans for what they are, an attempt to finally and forever control the electorate.
Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz is every American citizen, all of us. We have been duped into believing our Aunt Em is ill and that only the great Oz (Obama) and the Wicked Witch of the East (Sebelius) can stave off our collective ailments through cost-effective, top-down, government controlled health care.
It’s time to completely pull back the curtain to expose President Oz for what he is and to melt the wicked witche who commands the flying monkeys!
Like Dorothy, we need to return home and promise we will never run away again to follow the hollow fairy tale of another Oz. Let’s remind ourselves, “there’s no place like home.”Click here to comment

The history of civilization dating back some five millennia is one of unrelenting tyranny, rapaciousness, arrogance, and stupidity.
The players and the places changed, but the slaughter was unremitting, the suffering broken only by occasional brief periods of peace, good weather and crops. For most of the past, war, famine, and disease killed most people.
During the famous soliloquy of Hamlet, he contemplates taking his own life, saying “There’s the respect that makes calamity of so long life–for who would bear the whips and scorns of time, the oppressor’s wrong, the proud man’s contumely, the pangs of despised love, the law’s delay, the insolence of office…”
Our List of Woes
This list of woes neatly sums up the times in which we live as Americans endure many of these same abuses from a President who seems to enjoy displaying his contempt for them. He has plunged the nation into the highest debt in its history, is using the government shutdown as a crisis to divert attention from recent failures, and is flirting with a national default that would create domestic and international havoc…all while blaming the Republicans, the real end game.
As an October 3rd Wall Street Journal editorial noted, however, “House GOP leaders also insist they don’t want a default, and they’ve already passed a bill to prevent it—not that the media have paid any attention. First sponsored in 2011 by California Republican Tom McClintock and Pennsylvania Senator Pat Toomey, the Full Faith and Credit Act is essentially an insurance policy against miscalculation. Their bill certifies that U.S. sovereign debt will always be repaid, on time and in full.”
The Face of Tyranny
It is beginning to dawn on a lot of people that Barack Obama is the face of tryanny, a man for whom the Constitution, the democratic process and its need for compromise, exist only to be spurned.
Any President who is happy to preside over closing the White House to public tours, who authorizes placing barricades around Washington War Memorial that is normally open 24 hours a day as well as the Normandy, France D-Day cemetery where our soldiers are buried, is more than merely heartless, but represents a level of evil intent never before seen in anyone who has held that office.
