Yes, Obamanomics is Keynesianism but in the extreme.
Precisely, and why our Founding Fathers knew how the human being was wired. Wired for self-independent freedom in order to thrive socially,culturally and monetarily yet also wired for SELF ONLY(a la SIN -power hungry greed) which required a delicate construction of "checks and balances"(a la The Constitution) to be able to provide true independence within a framework of just law thus providing true liberty and freedom of the individual person.
