Obama lies to the people and changes America into his own image.
It hardly seems possible that Barack Obama has only been in office about five months. Even Adolph Hitler as head of Germany did not accomplish as much as Obama has in such a short time. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not talking about the slaughter of people, I’m referring to how the government and the country was changed in mere months after taking office.
The reason Obama has been able to do so much so quickly is that the checks and balances written into the Constitution don't always work. In the United States there are supposed to be three separate and equal branches of government and the press was expected to be an independent scrutinizer of government actions. Unfortunately the American system falls apart when a similar anti-American ideology controls the Executive and Legislative branches and dominates the judicial branch – and the press is a cheerleader for that ideology rather than a scrupulous protector of people’s rights.
It took over two hundred years following the blueprint of the Constitution to build the greatest country the world has ever seen – using the free market system, individual liberty and freedom from government intervention in the lives of Americans. Incredibly two hundred years of success has been undone in just a few months by Barack Hussein Obama after being elected president and taking office January, 2009.
Here is Obama’s scorecard so far – and the worst is yet to come.
The Wall Street Journal summarized the onslaught against American capitalism succinctly:
“Since the onset of the financial crisis nine months ago, the government has become the nation’s biggest mortgage lender, guaranteed nearly $3 trillion in money-market mutual-fund assets, commandeered and restructured two car companies, taken equity stakes in nearly 600 banks, lent more than $300 billion to blue-chip companies, supported the life-insurance industry and became a credit source for buyers of cars, tractors and even weapons for hunting.”
Everyday the government at the request of the Federal Reserve Bank prints more money to finance all this government intervention – and what a sweet deal the Fed has in this imbroglio. By law the Fed has the right to request the Treasury Department to print money FOR THEM. The Fed then loans the newly printed money to the government AT INTEREST so the Obama government can exercise its newly assumed power over American industry and the banking system. The result is the owners of the PRIVATELY-owned Fed, (many of the Fed owners are not Americans or American companies) reap a handsome profit as the American economy goes down the drain.
Not only is this a boom for the Fed, imagine the power that Obama has because the government has acquired ownership interest in so much of American enterprise. For example, Obama effectively owns about 60 percent of Citi Bank. Citi finances much of the business transacted in the United States and other countries. As owner of the bank, Obama can dictate how Citi uses its money; in other words, who wins and who loses. The same may be said of AIG who is a huge financier of businesses and institutions around the world – and the government owns 80 percent of AIG.
The Wall Street Journal says the government “has taken stakes in nearly 600 banks.” Try to imagine the scope of the expanded government authority and control of our country, of our not-so-free-enterprise and the American people, by dictating lending practices of so many banks!
We are told that the health industry is one-fifth of our economy; amounting to about $2.3 trillion of our gross national product. Obama’s latest push is to impose control of healthcare for all Americans and illegal aliens. The president is seen on television and in other venues everyday advancing his agenda to bring the entire health industry under government, and his, control. The sycophant news media helps Obama by re-broadcasting Obama’s lies and filtering any criticism.
The phony war on global warming, now called climate change, provides another opportunity for Obama and the government to expand control over American lives and assure an income stream to the government and chosen environment activists. This too is an Obama goal being advanced in the first five months of his administration and dutifully advocated by the Democrat leaders in the House and Senate – and of course the leftist news media.
We have yet to hear about “immigration reform” which will become a Democrat voter registration program by granting amnesty and “legal” voting privilege to illegal immigrants. This is to be another initiative achieved before the 2010 elections which carry a risk of loss of Democrat majorities in the House and/or the Senate. However, the Republican Party as it is presently constituted is hardly a dependable opponent of Obama’s plans and cannot be relied upon to do what’s necessary to thwart government takeover and further encroachment of our freedoms and the capitalist system of free enterprise.
If you doubt Republicans cannot be relied upon to do the right thing for our country and oppose Obama, consider that the Stimulus Bill which could only have been passed with Republican senate votes and the House passage of the “Hate Crimes” law and the GIVE Act, both of which saw Republicans “reach across the aisle” in congress joining with Democrats to pass such legislation because in their view these bills “contain some beneficial provisions.” When will Republicans learn you can’t make a bad law better and remember that half-a-loaf is only good for eating; not for the rights of Americans?
It’s time for a new “Republican Party”; more about that later.
