"If at age 20 you are a conservative then you have no heart. If at age 30 you are a liberal then you have no brains."
Sir Winston Churchill

Obama obviously knows very little about economics, specifically that "Society stagnates when independent productive achievers begin to be socially demonized and even punished for their accomplishments." This dilemma fogs Obama's reality. To him, accepting this truth is a "false choice", his answer to things he doesn't understand. And by the way... where is John Galt?

      Turning and turning in the widening gyre
    The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
    Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
    Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
    The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
    The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
    The best lack all conviction, while the worst
    Are full of passionate intensity"
Uncertainty exists in nature as part of the human condition.  As such, it can be dealt with through careful planning, insight and foresight so that the individual and collective affairs of a people don't become hopelessly endangered.
But when uncertainty is politically "weaponized", it becomes the destroyer of the social compact and a cancer on the nation it targets.
This administration uses uncertainty so adroitly that it becomes impossible to believe they are merely inept. After all the creation of chaos, confusion and uncertainty was the bedrock strategy used by Obama's ideological inspiration, Saul Alinsky.  For those who hate capitalism, the free market, individual liberty and democracy...killing certainty will also kill all of the above.  
In point of fact, our economy will never recover with out certainty!   Certainty is what allows economic growth to proceed because the job creators will be able to safely make the decisions they need to make to create wealth and grow jobs in the private economy.
Everywhere you look however, there is nothing but uncertainty. 
Consider how a near state of perpetual uncertainty has manifested itself over the last five years.

The biggest and most controversial example of purposeful uncertainty is the Affordable Care Act or "ObamaCare" which was never read or understood by the Democrats in Congress, who passed it into law without a single Republican vote.  The act in reality is nothing more than a steady roll out of regulations authored by faceless bureaucrats that continue to mystify, astonish, and shock the public as they begin to understand the consequences of a law they don't like and never wanted.
"ObamaCare" has never lived up to it's hype.  People are losing jobs, being reduced to part time employees, losing their health insurance or losing coverage for their families.  Their premiums are going up along with their deductibles and co-pays and this entire "Rube Goldberg" system is held together by the threat of fines levied by the most discredited agency in the federal Government...the IRS.
On October 1, 2013 the roll out for individuals for "ObamaCare" began on line and crashed in spectacular fashion thereby creating even more confusion and uncertainty than even the harshest critics had predicted.  Meanwhile the President grants illegal waivers and extensions to corporations and unions and the end result of this is more uncertainty.
Another example is how Congress and in particular the   Democratic Senate operates.  No budget has been passed since Obama has become President in 2008.  Instead we have one Continuing Resolution after another which has led to Sequestration, a Government shutdown, and political melodramas over raising the debt ceiling.  The end result is fear, confusion and once again more uncertainty.
The Senate in addition does not operated under it's rules or "regular order" thereby making the worlds most famous deliberative body functionally  mute and cognitively dysfunctional.  Government in effect ceases to function and partisan chaos rules the day.  The end product is once more... uncertainty!
The regulatory agencies have been used to control the economy and stop job growth.  The EPA in particular has passed rules that increase the cost of energy by mandating costly bio fuels, green energy alternatives that cannot  and will not provide reliable amounts of affordable energy for years or decades.  In addition the EPA is now attempting to shut down the Coal industry and try's to create a back door "Cap and Trade system" that Congress has refused to pass..  All of this  creates incredible expenses for the taxpayers and business as well as...more uncertainty!
The DoL and DoJ operate with undisguised bias.  The NLRB unconstitutionally  attempts to deny the right of a private corporation to do business in a "Right to Work" state and Czars who are not subject to Senate confirmation make policy in secret.  Again the result is more and more uncertainty because no one knows what this administration will do next.
Even with regard to our Constitution there is no certainty.  It is spoken of with mock reverence by this  President and then treated like a crazy uncle living in the attic.     During the last five years this slow erosion  of constitutionality has become an avalanche and thus we live under a government in a land with ever increasing uncertainty!
No one truly knows what our foreign or defense policies are. We know what this administration says they are...which change from day to day and crisis to crisis.  Our allies are filled with uncertainty concerning what we are about to do next along with our fidelity to our commitments to them and their safety.  We have become an unstable superpower in the throes of abdication over being a superpower.  We have created a vacuum and chaos and evil are rushing in to fill the void making the entire world a victim of our lack of certainty.
Our government turns the agencies of government against its political enemies and no one is fired, arrested, jailed or impeached and we know that government is broken...there is nothing but uncertainty and all bets are off.
We are like the ancient Israelites wandering in the wilderness seeking our ancient home of yore that made us great and independent.  We have difficulty today even identifying who we are as a people.  We used to be a melting pot taking the best of who we were and merging it into the best of who we had become.
But today there is no demand that we live united...only a demand among some that that no demand at all is placed upon our Americanism.  Thus we have a growing number of languages on our ballots and demands for Sharah Law to replace American law or even the demand to return whole states back to a foreign power.  The Statue of Liberty weeps for this lack of unity and certainty.
Uncertainty is a weapon aimed at the heart of our democracy.  It is  used on purpose to destroy us both at home and abroad.  It is not accidental or coincidental , or unrelated to those who think they rule us.  It is designed to destroy us without our fighting back.  It wants us to simply shrug and say this is the price of progress... "Easy come...easy go"!
