For those of you who believe that global unrest is key to reshaping the political, social and economic structures in Europe, the U.S. and elsewhere – you are mistaken. Raging against the “machine” is not only a misguided philosophy, it’s idiotic. Capitalism and free markets are not the reason the world is facing the problems it is today. Crony capitalism is what ails the world – a long with a host of accomplices. Chief among them are big, bloated governments here in the U.S. and across the pond.
Individualism and self-reliance are the antidotes we seek and the United States should be leading the way by example. Instead, we have a president who’s in campaign mode and acts as if the last three years-plus of his first term never happened. Mr. President, George W. Bush is not responsible for our current crisis. He allowed government to continue swelling under his watch, but the addition of $5 trillion in new debt is all on you. The statute of limitations has run out on blaming President Bush. You own your lousy record, this sluggish economy, and the Great Recession. I don’t know where your so-called recovery is taking place, but it’s not here.
To be president of the United States is to be the leader of the free world. Barack Obama has led from behind on the world stage and continues to lower the standards of the office he holds each and every day. Unlike Ronald Reagan who spoke softly and carried a big stick, Obama speaks loudly and carries no stick. He does what he’s good at; what he was trained to do on the streets of South Chicago. He agitates the population. He divides people a long racial lines. He demonizes the free market, success, wealth, entrepreneurship and small business – the lifeblood of our free society. He is a glorified community organizer, an acolyte of Saul Alinsky, and a well-polished product of the Chicago political machine. Our federal government speaks out against bullying in our schools, yet Barack Obama is the most-accomplished bully in U.S. history. He is leading by example on that front.
Obama is a failed leader and an embarrassment to this great country. As I stated earlier, a return to individualism is desperately needed, but Obama stands in the way of prosperity and a return to our Founding Principles. The individual made this country great, not the collective. America is great because America is good. We are exceptional because of our Founding Documents and the ideas that are rooted among them. We need a president who is going to help return us to those ideals, not someone who’s going to continue taking us in the other direction – in the direction of socialism. In the direction of monolithic government and mass-dependency. The U.S. welfare state is in need of a hatchet not coddling.
As the world continues to burn, Barack Obama not only does nothing to alleviate the problem. He stands in the way. He fans the flames with a grin on his face – as any diligent Marxist would. As the Occupiers gear up for May Day protests and disruption, Obama says nothing. He does not denounce it. Why? Because he doesn’t have a problem with unrest. In fact, he favors it. He is the chief architect behind Occupy Wall Street and it’s delusional, scatter-brained organization – or lack thereof. As Governor of California, Ronald Reagan took a hard line approach with the human debris of San Francisco during the 1960’s. No doubt, President Reagan would handle these reprobates in a similar fashion.
But Reagan is gone and we’re stuck with a leftist ideologue who is determined to take us over the cliff. Solving the problems we face is not what he seeks. As stated in 2008, Obama wants to “fundamentally transform the United States of America”. You don’t accomplish that goal by solving problems. You do it by exacerbating them.
The first step in taking back the American Experiment is to throw Barack Obama out of the White House in November and send every Congressional Democrat packing. Four more years of Obama and a Democrat-controlled Senate will be the death nail of the republic. It’s time for freedom-loving Americans to stand up and speak out.
To be silent is to do nothing.
