An examination of Obama's policies and a comparison to the novel 1984 and the movie The Wizard of Oz.


We've been on this road now for six years. Big Brother has two more years to institute his, "Change," as promised, (or is that threatened?), when he ran for President of the United States in 2008. He's painted this brick road yellow and tells us it is gold. He also tells us that it leads to an Emerald City. But, this is not the same Emerald City as in the Wizard of Oz. This city is more like Airstrip One from the novel 1984. That was a province of the superstate, Oceania. This yellow brick road is taking us to a world of perpetual war, omnipresent government surveillance, and public manipulation. The man in charge is really not a benevolent wizard. He's hiding behind a curtain and tries to fool us by telling us that all is transparent. We should pay more attention to that man behind the curtain.

Foreign policy

This is not Dorothy's Oz! The so-called Wizard is only interested in conjuring his socialistic, progressive, liberal agenda. He has no interest in liquidating the evil forces allied against us. That is why our foreign policy is asleep, just like Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Tin Man and the Cowardly Lion when they enter the field of poppies. That is also why our ambassador in Libya and three others lost their lives. The wizard then had to draw the curtain across the whole incident long enough to become elected for the second time. The wizard is much too busy here at home to pay much attention to real problems overseas. He has dealt with them half heartedly and gives them lip service. The problems of Iran, Iraq, Russia's invasion of the Ukraine, ISIS, radical Islamic terrorists and now Yemen being taken over by Al Qaeda terrorists are examples of his indifference. Just this past September Obama called Yemen a United States foreign policy success story!

Big Brother

The wizard has his eye upon Oz, the Emerald City and Munchkin Land. He and his minions are persecuting individualism and independent thinking. They consider themselves the privileged Inner Party elite. This mimics the party in control of the political system in 1984. This Inner Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. It is not interested in the good of others. The evidence is clear. Obama care, (a con job), is designed to control the populace by controlling the medical care for the entire nation. It is overseen by the most powerful government agency of them all, the IRS. This same IRS has been caught persecuting conservative causes and organizations to the exclusion of the liberal ones, following party lines.
Big Brother Obama flaunts the Constitution at every opportunity. With the stroke of his pen he has given amnesty to over 5 million illegal immigrants. This will eventually lead to amnesty for all of them, over 12 million. The president was a constitutional attorney who previously admitted on numerous occasions that the president does not have the authority to do exactly this. He was right then but, does it anyway. His, "Newspeak," is, "The end justifies the means."

The players

The cast of characters in this road fantasy show has many parallels to those in the Wizard of Oz. We have Big Brother, Obama as the Wizard. Although he bears little resemblance to the goodhearted wizard in the movie.
There is the Wicked Witch of the East, Nancy Pelosi. She was speaker of the house. Coincidentally, the witch in the movie had a house dropped on her. The Republicans gained control of the House ending Pelosi's speaker hood.
Glinda, the Good Witch of the North is Sarah Palin. She was the Governor of Alaska. You can't get more north than that. Sarah aligned herself with the Tea Party, much like the protagonist in 1984. He, Winston Smith, was a member of the Outer Party and secretly hated the Inner Party and dreamt of rebellion against Big Brother.
The Wicked Witch of the West's soldiers are akin to our own military. Both have to take orders from their Commander-in-Chief. We don't find out until the end of the movie that the soldiers hate the witch. They hail Dorothy after she melts the witch. The Wicked Witch of the West is represented by Harry Reid, the former leader of the Senate. Like the witch his status was melted by the Republican takeover of the majority in the Senate this past November.


Now we come to the intrepid travelers in the Wizard of Oz.
Scarecrow, because of his superior brain is chosen to rule Oz in the wizard's stead. This could be Mitt Romney. He is a savvy businessman and was once the Governor of Massachusetts. He almost became president in 2012.
The Tin Man who has a big heart could be Jeb Bush. He's sympathetic to illegal immigrants which his stated opinion towards them proves.
The Cowardly Lion could be represented by Mike Huckabee. The lion was king of the beasts. Huckabee was the former Governor of Arkansas. He once ran for president and had his own show on Fox News. They are both courageous.
A Dorothy has yet to appear on the campaign scene. Although Sarah Palin just might fit the bill.
Chris Christie, the Governor of New Jersey might play the Mayor of Munchkin Land. They are both elected officials and they both have of the same rotund body type.
The witch's flying monkeys are the Democratic Party. They are always up to some mischief.
As in the movie there is one character missing. The Wicked witch of the South!
Horrors! Could this be Hillary?
Who will become the next Wizard of Oz!?
