Consider the following quote from thinker Francis Schaeffer as Obama rejects the Founding vision rooted in unalienable rights, from a real and verifiable Creator, for an alien vision (alien to the U.S. and to human nature) rooted in private values (such as diversity, class warfare, homosexuality, mere economics, etc.) imposed by Washington:  

When the Christian consensus died, it left a vacuum, and this will tend to be filled by an elite to form an authoritarian state. When we speak of an authoritarian state, we must not think of the model of Hitler or Stalin, but rather a manipulative authoritarian state. The governments of the world have at their disposal forms of manipulation beyond anything the world has ever known before.
