The Danger of Obamism

Really, it's not Obama's personal "-ism."  He's not thinker, nor persona, enough to have an "-ism" named for him.

It's The Project which is a danger.

...The liberalism that Obama espouses is essentially an attempt to construct a society without religion and morality, one that is based not on traditional wisdom but upon the “enlightenment” of whoever is in power. Washington smelled a rat in the “refined” conceits of the Enlightenment. He asked in his farewell address — “[W]here is the security for property, for reputation, for life, if the sense of religious obligation desert the oaths, which are the instruments of investigation in Courts of Justice?” — and rejected the idea “that morality can be maintained without religion.” He correctly predicted that “national morality” would suffer “in exclusion of religious principle.”...

And the most telling line of Neumayr's critique?

...Barack Obama gave his farewell address not in George Washington’s capital, but in the friendlier confines of Saul Alinsky’s Chicago...

That's the use of a literary device.  Too bad I don't know what it's called.
