For the con man to get you to willingly hand over your possessions he must deceive your heart and mind that he cares about you. The success of the con man is sealed when the victim thanks him for taking advantage of them.
Exactly what happened when the people reelected Barack Obama. Not only did the masses reward him with another four years to plunder their possessions they now thank him with a 56% job approval rating.
How could Obama succeed in such a grand deception? The steady and methodical manipulation of reality.
In 2008 Obama convinced a war weary nation suffering from the shock of a financial meltdown that the cause of all their misery was the greedy institutions of capitalism. In other words America as founded. Hence the con man convincing the victim the need for a fundamental transformation of America.
In a nation of over 310 million people the con man needs accomplices to complete a deception of such great magnitude. State controlled education, Hollywood, and a compliant liberal media proved more than capable, they were and remain willing accomplices.
How does the con man win your heart and mind? By demonizing his opponent to make you believe that only he cares for you, and the opponent hates you. The opponents’ policies are the cause of your misery. Only the con man cares enough for you to change those policies.
The key to Obama’s deception was class warfare. People are easily fooled by class envy. Convincing them the greedy 1% who have amassed all the wealth aren’t paying their fair share, while the victim goes without, is an easy sale especially with accomplices in the media.
If only you give the con man the power to seize the property of the greedy he will return it to you and all will be fair in America. The victim doesn’t realize by giving the con man the power to seize the property of others they give the con man the power to seize theirs.
With willing accomplices Obama convinced America that a tax increase on the rich was a tax cut for the middle class. The reward for the thankful victims will be the true reality. The loss of jobs, opportunities, and raises.
However the con man’s job is far from finished. To gain absolute power over the victim the final phases of the plan must be completed.
During his first term the con man convinced the victim that only by ceding the control over their health care to him could he save those poor millions without health insurance. Now that the con man has control over the life and death decisions of the victim plus the power to seize their property, it is still not enough.
