In the storied history of our nation, in times of crises, the cream of the American populace blessed our country by rising to the top. When great leadership was required, honorable men stepped forward out of a sense of duty and service to lead our Republic with strength, honor, bravery, and wisdom.
Unfortunately, however, there were times it seemed we picked our leaders from the squalid backwaters of society and discovered that pond scum also rises to the top.
Most Americans recoil in disgust when shameful and corrupt politicians use the sacred trust of the people for their own self-gratifying ideology or enrichment. Inversely, the nation reveres the heroes who answer the clarion call of leadership when we face hardship or peril. Since the birth of our republic, men were always there to lead the country to extraordinary victories in times of the most trying adversities.
Likewise, when the nation was afflicted with thieves, crooks, liars, and wannabe tyrants, good men repaired much of the damage inflicted by political scumbags and restored the country to reasonable health.
The leftwing media and Democrats foisted Barack Obama upon America, promising a President to make Lincoln proud. As it turned out, we got a charlatan masterfully trained in the art of misdirection and deception by the words of Saul Alinsky and Karl Marx. A man with a personal agenda so radically anti-American, that he surely would not be President if properly vetted.
Just when the country needed a man trained and skilled in economics to lead us to a proven and self-sustaining, free enterprise system, we got a Marxist that believes in a redistributive economy controlled by an all-powerful, centralized federal government. We needed a man to create an atmosphere conducive to job creation by private business, but we got a sworn enemy of capitalism and the free enterprise system who believes in the failed premise that government must create jobs and control commerce.
When Americans needed a CEO, we got a community-organizing activist. When we needed a General, we got an apologist. Promised a Statesman, we got a President who alienated our friends, encouraged and gave comfort to our enemies from his first day in office. We need a Churchill – we got Neville Chamberlain.
The media assured us he was a President who would heal and unite the country. We got a man who looks under every rock for racism and turns up every corner of every issue looking for insensitivity and political correctness. Obama fans the flames of divisiveness like none other in the history of the presidency. He fails in all that is important to a free people and blames his failures on others. Dividing everyone by class, race, gender, religion, and national origin is his only hope for reelection. He offers excuses, blame, and bravado – none of which solves problems, creates jobs or furthers the national interest.
When we needed straight talk, we chose a man who parses every word and speaks in riddles and talking points driven by daily polling. Obama is a man who reinvents the language and can’t call anything by its proper name. “War on terror” is now “overseas contingency operations,” “terrorist attacks” became “man caused disasters,” “war” is now defined as “kinetic military action,” and, of course, “illegal alien” is “undocumented immigrant.” He commits gaffe after gaffe when unable to use his teleprompter or textbook talking points from Alinsky and his leftists. When asked a simple question he often rambles on and on with incoherent, babble.
They promised a man who would show the country, especially its young people, thrift and “hope” for the future. We elected a man who will pile an unimaginable additional debt on the nation and its youth by the end of his first term of nearly 5 trillion dollars. The same young people to whom he preaches conservation will find crushing obligations to enable Obama and his idealistic dictatorship.
Welfare rolls skyrocketed over 40 percent and reached numbers never before witnessed in America. Obama changed the old middle class into the new welfare class. The more he implements his Marxist ideas the greater numbers he adds to permanent government dependency.
We needed a President to surround himself with knowledgeable, ethical experts, and true American Patriots. We got Barack Obama, a wholly owned subsidiary of the radical left-wing of this country. His list of friends, acquaintances, cabinet members, czars, and White House staff reads like the Who’s Who of radical 60’s terrorists, and modern-day revolutionaries. Bombers, rioters, Communists, Marxists, Maoists, Socialists and myriads of other misfits, permeate, not only his inner circle, but unfortunately work tirelessly, pulling the strings of government and remaking the country into Obama’s perverted delusion of America.
He appointed an Attorney General with a racial agenda, a Treasury Secretary that had problems paying his own taxes, and a Secretary of State who believes in One World Government and works with the United Nations to usurp constitutional rights of Americans.
When we needed a man who had overcome the experiences and trials of life, we got a dysfunctional product of a nanny state government, obsessed with “fairness” and “Social Justice.” He believes in a system where the hammocks and featherbeds of big government softens failures and is always there to protect people from themselves and from life. Leftists never understand the need for failure in providing guidance in the pursuit of life’s goals and the building of character. Protected from real-life experiences like meeting payrolls, and disappointing failure, they never build quality leadership abilities. Neither can they develop the proper circuitry in their brains for critical thinking.
Barack Obama is a cold, calculating, Marxist, consumed by bitterness. He spends every waking moment ranting about the unfairness of America and disparaging American exceptionalism. He is hitched to the rail of progressive group-thinking and incapable of offering unbridled leadership in a free republic. In all of his arrogance, he consistently compares himself to the strong, individualistic pioneer, Abraham Lincoln; while he’s more aptly an ideologically driven, more deadly version of Jimmy Carter.
In Obama’s latest class warfare jab at Mitt Romney, he smirked that he wasn’t born with a “silver spoon” in his mouth. Obama has grown and thrived, however, with a “golden-government spoon” in his mouth and a feeding tube connected directly to taxpayers.
He rails against the rich jet setters flying around the world, while he and his family’s intricate, massive spider webs of jet contrails fill the sky. He crisscrosses the country running his progressive-Marxist flag up the “elect Obama” pole trying to find the political winds to make it fly. He knows the winds increase as the welfare rolls swell.
Disillusionment, turmoil, fear, and discontent are prevalent at times within any group of people or country. Politicians feed and thrive on these facts of life just as all predators feed on the fear of their prey. With Barack Obama in the White House, the federal government is a predator, and the American people are the prey. If Americans scatter, out of fear and helplessness, we will surely become victims and the nation that our founders gave us will fall. Freedom lovers in this country must unite and stand to fight this tyrant before he devours all of our liberty!
