Four years ago Americans got caught up in a daze of “hope and change” and elected Barack Hussein Obama to the most powerful position on the planet: President of the United States of America.
At the time Obama was an unknown and unvetted community organizer, who had no record of accomplishment or qualifications for president. Today his past records remain sealed and he is a mystery to most Americans.
Many of his euphoric supporters were not aware that when Obama promised to “fundamentally transform the United States of America” it would require dismantling the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Many didn’t know that Obama’s transformation was intended to diminish American power by crippling our economy and establish a European socialist state.
Today, Barack Obama has achieved an abysmal record, all being ignored by the mainstream media. Nevertheless, many of his supporters are having “buyer’s remorse,” and for good reason as they are beginning to discover Obama’s scheme and can visualize where it will take us.
Obama and his corrupt administration have given America the greatest debt in history by “investing” taxpayer dollars in fraudulent green energy schemes and other failed stimulus projects. Obama gave us the greatest number of people receiving food stamps in history by advertising for customers, the greatest number of Americans on some kind of public assistance in history by providing hand-outs such as cell phones and empty promises, and the greatest era of unemployment since the Great Depression.
Obama gave America a fatal dose of “Obamacare” that will prove to be the greatest tax increase in history. Obama has ignored scandals such as “Fast and Furious” and lied about the terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, and he has welcomed the Muslim Brotherhood to America. On an open microphone, Obama covertly promised the Russians that “I will have more flexibility after the elections.” He has fostered the greatest disaster in the Middle East due to his incompetence, failures and humiliating apologies—and Obama gave us the greatest attack on Christianity without apologies.
According to Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and other Democrats and elected representatives, “the rich must pay their fair share,” because government needs more money to sustain their great deception. They believe Americans are incapable of taking care of themselves as independent and useful citizens. They talk down to us as being helpless victims who can’t survive unless we accept food stamps, welfare, and unemployment benefits.
Indirectly they allude that we just need to yield our independence and sovereignty to government by reducing ourselves into lowly subjects living in a blissful stupor, all within a glorious entitlement society. Of course that’s all well until government runs out of other people’s money and the austerity riots begin such as in Greece and other failed socialist nations.
The Nov. 6, 2012, General Election will be without question the most important election in our lifetime. Will we elect a new president who believes in America, the Constitution, human rights, economic stability, and capitalism so America can become respected and strong once again, with independence and self-respect for all, or will we continue down Obama’s slippery slope to third world socialism, sloth, and dependence on government handouts?
The choice this Nov. 6 will be between liberty and tyranny.
