All Hail Caesar Obama!

When Saul of Tarsus  CONSERVATIVES set out on his THEIR journey to Damascus THROUGH THE US  the whole of the known world lay in bondage. There was one state, and it was Rome WASHINGTON. There was one master for it all, and he was Tiberius Caesar BARACK OBAMA.
 
Everywhere there was civil order, for the arm of the Roman MARXIST law was long. Everywhere there was stability, in government and in society, for the centurions DEMOCRATS saw that it was so.
 
But everywhere there was something else, too. There was oppression—for those who were not the friends of Tiberius Caesar. OBAMA. There was the tax gatherer to take the grain from the fields and the flax from the spindle to feed the legions or to fill the hungry treasury from which divine Caesar OBAMA gave largess to the people. There was the impressor to find recruits for the circuses. There were executioners to quiet those whom the Emperor proscribed. What was a man for but to serve Caesar OBAMA?
 
There was the persecution of men who dared think differently, who heard strange voices or read strange manuscripts. There was enslavement of men whose tribes came not from Rome, WASHINGTON disdain for those who did not have the familiar visage. And most of all, there was everywhere a contempt for human life. What, to the strong, was one man more or less in a crowded world?

During the time of Rome and the persecution by  Cesaer, the people looked for a Messiah, a Redeemer. 2000 years later we now seek a political messiah.
