Robespierre--learning from the past....

From Kurt at A trainwreck in Maxwell.  I've made some changes that update it a bit. 

The next three months four years Robespierre Obama reigned supreme. he nominated all the members of the Government Committees Cabinet and judiciary, placed his men in all places of influence as Czars that are not answerable to the people of the United States or its Congress in the commune of Paris Washington DC, and assumed complete control of the Revolutionary Tribunal the federal government using executive fiat and regulatory agencies such as the EPA.

However, as his power increased, his popularity waned. On May 7
In February 2009 Robespierre Obama, who had previously condemned the Cult of Reason Christianity and Gun Owners as bitter clingers, advocated a new state religion anthropogenic global warming and Green Energy and recommended the Convention to acknowledge the existence of God strangling the economy of the United through draconian regulations in the name of green energy; on June 8 in February 2009 the inaugural Festival of the Supreme the Stimulus bill containing billions for green jobs being took place was signed. Meanwhile, the pace of the guillotine Democrats losing 'safe' seats to Republicans grew faster; public finance and government generally drifted to ruin, and Saint-Just  Morgan Freeman demanded  the creation of a dictatorship in the person of Robespierre that the American people re-elect Obama because he's black. On July 26 (oh hell, there's too many times to count now), the dictator Obama delivered a long harangue complaining that he was being accused of crimes unjustly. The Convention Congress, after at first obediently passing his decrees, next rescinded them and referred his proposals (such as his got-to-pass-right-now jobs bill) to the committees. 

....

 The rest is the history of Robespierre and his downfall, but there seem to be some parallels.  Maybe not the guillotine, I'll settle for one term as long as his disastrous policies can be reversed and we can get this country back on track.

....

That night at the Jacobin Club his party again triumphed. At the Convention the following day, Saint-Just could not obtain a hearing, and Robespierre was vehemently attacked (the 9th of Thermidor). A deputy proposed his arrest; at the fatal word Robespierre's power came to an end.

He fled to the Common Hall, whereupon the Convention declared him an outlaw. The National Guard under Barras turned out to protect the Convention, and Robespierre had his lower jaw broken by a shot fired by a gendarme. The next day (July 28, the 10th of Thermidor), he was sent to the guillotine along with Saint-Just, Couthon, and nineteen others.
