Today The Commander in Hope announced his plans for a Cyber Czar. My first thought was "what? Why another layer of bureaucracy? Why is this persons organization going to be better than the FBI or the NSA? Won't this just cause more turf wars and infighting? Will the position be granted broad powers by congress? How is this gonna work?"
But then I got it. Who ever gets appointed to this position will have a very aggressive to do list before even pretending to fight off Chinese hackers.
Action items as of day 1:
- Make sure all of the tracks that could lead to the discovery of the illegal internet fund raising by the Obama campaign can never be discovered.
- Make sure that the GOP or any other group can't use anonymous micro-transactions over the internet from super rich donators (like George Soros) for fund raising, like the Obama campaign did.
- Roll out internet voting in time for the 2012 election.
James Carville has been hawking his new book "40 More Years" on all the networks and news cable shows. He's being coy. He knows that if everything goes according to plan that we are looking down the precipice of one party rule, a.k.a totalitarianism, forever!
Two issues we will be hearing about more of in the future can make this a certainty. Only one of the initiatives needs to be successful.
- Internet voting
- Immigration reform
If both of these issues are not completely put down, then Carville is right; The Republic is Dead!
He's wrong in his reasoning of why. He forgets that the poor, young, idealistic students grow up, get jobs, and ultimately think differently about having their money separated from them with such carelessness.
