Do you remember the speech at Grant Park in Chicago that Obama gave after he won his first term election? I decided to go back through the mist of time, and take his words from that speech and apply the divide in this country to today in comparison. (Insert Harp music here and fade to 2008). What I found was an amazing speech in the design of Socialism, and this administration’s future failures…
“While the Democratic Party has won a great victory tonight, we do so with a measure of humility and determination to heal the divides that have held back our progress.” Mr. Soetoro, oops there I go again, Uhm… Mr. Obama… You have shown no humility as President. In fact you refuse to negotiate with oppositionist views, and you have healed nothing. In fact the country is divided more so than since the Civil War! Thus, less “Progress”.
“And to those Americans whose support I have yet to earn, I may not have won your vote tonight, but I hear your voices. I need your help. And I will be your president, too.” Oh really Barry? What exactly have you done to “EARN” anything from those that did not vote for you? You had the IRS target conservatives, and you didn’t hear our voices when you had more than 69% of the American public telling you to leave our health care alone! No sir, you are not our President in any form of representational government. You go against all of what the founding fathers strived to create for this land. James Madison warned us about this happening.
“There are mothers and fathers who will lie awake after the children fall asleep and wonder how they’ll make the mortgage or pay their doctors’ bills or save enough for their child’s college education.” Mr. Obama, how many homes have gone into foreclosure since you became President? What have you done to help them? Barney Frank decimated Fanny Mae and Freddie Mac, and how will they pay their mortgage now if they have to spend 800 bucks a month on healthcare where they didn’t before!? The taking over of Student loans? It raised the cost of college tuitions! The only ones that get a break now are illegal aliens! If you want to help the common citizen, stop creating things that take money out of our pockets.
“There’s new energy to harness, new jobs to be created, new schools to build, and threats to meet, alliances to repair.” Oh if we only knew then what we know now… Solyndra and many others given Stimulus money and then close up shop, and job creation dismal at best with an almost stagnant growth index. Oh, and you want to build new schools? Why? To teach Common Core? Such an assignment to design a new communist country’s flag? Assignments to tell students to think like a Nazi and tell why Jews are evil? To give young teens books to read with porn in them? (All true, Google it!). You Sir, have NOT repaired any alliances. In fact Poland doesn’t trust you, Israel knows you do not have their back, this world is a wreck because of your non-existent foreign policies (See last weeks blog titled “The International Demise of America’s Greatness: The Domino Affect”.
“It can’t happen without you, without a new spirit of service, a new spirit of sacrifice.” Ah, and there it is, that word “Sacrifice” As if he was telling us things will get worse. When does one sacrifice and things get better? Never for the individual that does the sacrifice, it only benefits those that yield results from your sacrifice. Redistribution of wealth for one. Coal mines closing as he said “Under my energy policy energy rates will skyrocket and the cost would be passed on to the consumer”. Therefore you pay more for his green agenda. Sacrifice your healthcare plan you are happy with, just so you can pay 3 times more so those below the affordable radar get subsidies. Oh, yes, sacrifice. I don’t want to “Sacrifice” I want to prosper! America has always been a prosperous nation, now we are asked to be a nation of sacrifices?
“Let’s resist the temptation to fall back on the same partisanship and pettiness and immaturity that has poisoned our politics for so long.” Oh, you mean like calling Republicans in Congress “Terrorists”, or telling republicans to go sit at the back of the bus? or refusing to talk with them if you don’t get your way? Why don’t you just take your bat and ball and go home if you are that thinned skinned.
“To those — to those who would tear the world down: We will defeat you. To those who seek peace and security: We support you. And to all those who have wondered if America’s beacon still burns as bright: Tonight we proved once more that the true strength of our nation comes not from the might of our arms or the scale of our wealth, but from the enduring power of our ideals: democracy, liberty, opportunity and unyielding hope.” Where oh where do I begin with this one? Those that want to tear down the world, such as the Muslim Brotherhood, Syrian Rebels, Illegal Immigrants you support, and those that seek peace and security with TRUE democracy [General Al-sisi] you try to throw a wrench into their works. You have dimmed the beacon of light to the point where our own democracy behaves as a Dictatorship, we are losing our liberties (and may I add our privacy), opportunity is squelched by regulations, abusive executive orders, and the only unyielding hope we have left is that you are politically stopped by doing even more harm to this country.
“This is our time, to put our people back to work and open doors of opportunity for our kids.” You have had about 5 years into this Mr. President, and you have not put people back to work. The unemployment rate has not gone down below 7%, and the true number is higher after taking into consideration the people who left the work force radar who stopped looking for work. You have skyrocketed food stamp usage and welfare, and now with Obamacare those that voted for you are about to feel first hand what conservatives have been warning about even before the Health care bill was passed: That is to say: This wasn’t about health care, it is about the government taking over so they get the insurance profits, and you get sub-standard healthcare all while the government controls your lives, and the cost will be astronomical.
In retrospect that speech in Grant Park in 2008 was/is a totally Socialistic speech. I invite you to read the transcript: http://edition.cnn.com/2008/POLITICS/11/04/obama.transcript/
President Obama has succeeded though. No, not in making anything better in this country or Internationally, but has succeeded with his agenda. Every radical policy he invokes is for one purpose, and one purpose only: To tear down and rebuild America into a socialistic country. Oh sure, Liberals will hear me say that and call me an extremist, but I am not. I am a historian at heart, one who turns to history and compares, learns from it. From the Federalist Papers and our founding fathers conservative views of Liberty and freedom, to a speech said nearly 5 years ago it all is history. What the President is doing from redistribution of wealth, government take overs of student loans, car companies, running coal companies to extinction, giving our ocean rights away by executive order, as well as fishing profits to be shared with smaller, poorer nations, the Health care takeover, and the list goes on and on and on, this President has been a human wrecking ball to our founding.
Yet, the media loves him, the die hard liberals still support him as if he was the second coming, and the James Madison conservatives in us? We are now extremists. To want less government intrusion in our lives, less taxes, to prop up people to stand on their own two feet (with assistance, yes) instead of settling into an entitlement addiction, to have Christian, Jewish, family values is the new hate speech, that less regulations for business spawn growth. The left has succeeded in branding the conservatives as the evil ones. And people are buying that propaganda.
I have never seen a country more divided than now in our time. What is right is wrong, and what is wrong is right. This man still has 3 years to go, and the damage to our Constitution is in full swing. The Republicans joining Obama by trashing the Reaganites and Conservatives. The history revision of the success of conservatism, the founding fathers, and our Constitution are so blatant, yet believed: Tell a lie enough times and it becomes the truth.
I fear the 2016 election will not bring cures to our nations woes. The democrats will no doubt put up Hilary, and the Rino Republicans will no doubt put up a Liberal Republican (Moderate) like Christie or similar. Mark Levin pointed out a great fact. Obama’s first election he beat McCain by 5% and Obama beat Romney by 3%. However when conservatives do run like Reagan it is a landslide victory for us. The Tea party was a unprecedented historical victory. Yet, the likes of Anne Coulter and Carl Rove and others tells us we can’t win unless we put up a moderate. Therefore even if a “Moderate” Republican wins, it will be the same. More spending, more government intrusion. I had to vote today in NJ for Chris Christie and hated doing so, but I had no choice. Just like I had to vote for McCain and Romney. The conservative no longer has any politician representing us. When we do find one, they are attacked by both parties. Therefore is conservatism dead? No, we are a sleeping giant that needs to be awakened.
The Health care debacle is a test for conservatives. The 2014 election is a time for us to put up conservatives. Be it in the Republican Party, Libertarian, Tea Party, the Conservative party (Yes, there are those that run on the Conservative Party Ticket). Get involved.
Meanwhile watch as Obama continues to divide us with class warfare, new radical policies. The divide is not by chance, it is by design. That Grant Park speech? Read it, takes two minutes. Note the socialistic nature. Read in-between the lines. Then realize we are not becoming a socialistic country. With free speech in jeopardy, government take overs, the most expensive tax in the history of our country (And yes, the Supreme Court called it a tax), with redistribution of wealth, with opposition being targeted, I say we are there and the people have not realized it yet. This is no longer a representative Republic. How can we be when the elected do as they will, and not by what the people want, only to say “They will learn to love it”. Liberals? I hope you enjoy going broke with these policies. If not, vote for conservatives. God Bless America.
