November 2009 the citizens of the United States elected a charismatic, good looking, well groomed and polished, young man who romantically spoke the words the people wanted to hear – change!. He was the first man of color to be elected president of the United States.
The nation was whipped into an emotional frenzy of immense displeasure with the Republican Party rule and leadership they felt things could not get any worse. They felt that they could just close their eyes and ears and just punch the ticket for a totally unknown and unproven person to hold arguably the most powerful seat the in world, along with his party, without any truly intellectual thought of the consequences. The inertia of wanting to make history, electing the first Black man to be U.S president, and the displeasure of the G.W Bush and the Republican Party was just too great. It would take someone with a truly wicked imagination to see how things could be any worse for this federal republic.
After barely 2 years of electing Barack Obama many of us have awakened to the biggest WTF! morning hangover in U.S election history. Many of our eyes are opening to the harsh reality of their emotional binge; higher taxes, unprecedented national debt and poverty, record numbers of Americans without work nad less wealth, more national division, greater federal government intrusion and expansion, feeling less good about being American and of America’s future prosperity and posterity.
The consequences of allowing ourselves to be stirred up into euphoric, mental zombies, lead by and cheered on by the complicitous Established Media and a Republican Party unable, and or unwilling, to mount a vibrant and valid counter attack to highlight the more than obvious flaws and red flags presented by not only Mr. Obama, but that of the Democratic Party control of Congress, has created ill side effects that the nation may not be able to recover from anytime soon.
The American people have strainfully endured sixteen years of the most un-American presidents in history. They presented America in a subordinate and a most disadvantageous position, both domestically and internationally. And did everything to leave Americans with less than a warm-fuzzy feeling about being American. Bill Clinton stated, “If the personal freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution inhibit the government’s ability to govern the people, we should look to limit those guarantees.” G.W was reported to have referred to the Constitution as “just a goddamned piece of paper.” And now we have a person holding down the seat of president of the U.S who famously stated “the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties.”Says what the states can’t do to you. Because it restricts the powers of the government, and has demonstratively stated his wishes to “fundamentally change America”. Is it any wonder that on the 220th year of the Constitution, the world’s longest living national constitution, there is little celebration?
Through the last 20 years the U.S government leaders have nudged and pushed America into the economic
abyss. The current leadership has strapped a cenderblock on the back, cuffed both hands, and tied an abatross around the neck of America as Obama remarks, ” I just want to be perfectly clear.” In less than 2 years Mr. Obama has piled on more debt on the backs of the citizens of the United States and their posterity than all of the Presidents from Washington to Reagan. Under his short tenure the federal government has taken over the medical industry and what was once America’s and the world’s largest automotive manufacture – GM. Mr. Obama has dramatically divided the nation on ethnic and economic lines like no president has done in recent history. But more egregious, he has more blatantly presented America’s strengths, history, culture, world influence, and heritage, as something to be apologized for, ashamed of, and fundamentally changed and diminished both domestically and internationally without equal as the representative of America and the American people to the world.
The citizens of the nation should be finally sobering up to begin asking those seeking high political office questions of depth what should have been asked of this former sophomore senator 3 years ago: Will you uphold and protect the principles of the Constitution without reservation? Are you an American? Will you do everything to protect America from all threats, foreign and domestic? And will you represent the people of America in the most moral manner possible? I know that this should all be a duh! moment. But, recent evidence doesn’t prove itself to that fact. But one thing that I believe is a fact that there won’t be another Obama, nor Obama, elected to such high political office again. But, the government can not be any better than we are – the good and the bad.
