Barack Obama is the Best Thing to Happen to America in 100 Years

Once again, my old Navy buddy Rex has provided more fodder for the blog.  Thanks Rex!  This gentleman's letter that Rex forwarded to me below really hits the nail on the head and gives word to the hope I have guardedly had in my heart that Obama is indeed the catalyst for the rebirth of our nation as it was intended to be.  Read on!

Barack Obama is the best thing that has happened to America in the last 100 years. Truly, he is the savior of America 's future. He is the best thing ever.

Despite the fact that he has some of the lowest approval ratings among recent presidents, history will see Barack Obama as the source of America 's resurrection. Barack Obama has plunged the country into levels of debt that we could not have previously imagined; his efforts to nationalize health care have been met with fierce resistance nationwide; TARP bailouts and stimulus spending have shown little positive effect on the national economy; unemployment is unacceptably high and looks to remain that way for most of a decade; legacy entitlement programs have ballooned to unsustainable levels, and there is a seething anger in the populace.

That's why Barack Obama is such a good thing for America .

Obama is the symbol of a creeping liberalism that has infected our society like a cancer for the last 100 years. Just as Hitler is the face of fascism, Obama will go down in history as the face of unchecked liberalism. The cancer metastasized to the point where it could no longer be ignored.

Average Americans who have quietly gone about their lives, earning a paycheck, contributing to their favorite charities, going to high school football games on Friday night, spending their weekends at the beach or on hunting trips - they've gotten off the fence. They've woken up. There is a level of political activism in this country that we haven't seen since the American Revolution, and Barack Obama has been the catalyst that has sparked a restructuring of the American political and social consciousness.

Think of the crap we've slowly learned to tolerate over the past 50 years as liberalism sought to re-structure the America that was the symbol of freedom and liberty to all the people of the world. Immigration laws were ignored on the basis of compassion. Welfare policies encouraged irresponsibility, the fracturing of families, and a cycle of generations of dependency. Debt was regarded as a tonic to lubricate the economy. Our children left school having been taught that they are exceptional and special, while great numbers of them cannot perform basic functions of mathematics and literacy. Legislators decided that people could not be trusted to defend their own homes, and stripped citizens of their rights to own firearms. Productive members of society have been penalized with a heavy burden of taxes in order to support legions of do-nothings who loll around, reveling in their addictions, obesity, indolence, ignorance and "disabilities." Criminals have been arrested and re-arrested, coddled and set free to pillage the citizenry yet again. Lawyers routinely extort fortunes from doctors, contractors and business people with dubious torts.

We slowly learned to tolerate these outrages, shaking our heads in disbelief, and we went on with our lives.

But Barack Obama has ripped the lid off a seething cauldron of dissatisfaction and unrest.

In the time of Barack Obama, Black Panther members stand outside polling places in black commando uniforms, slapping truncheons into their palms. ACORN - a taxpayer-supported organization - is given a role in taking the census, even after its members were caught on tape offering advice to set up child prostitution rings. A former Communist is given a paid government position in the White House as an advisor to the president. Auto companies are taken over by the government, and the auto workers' union - whose contracts are completely insupportable in any economic sense - is rewarded with a stake in the company. Government bails out Wall Street investment bankers and insurance companies, who pay their executives outrageous bonuses as thanks for the public support. Terrorists are read their Miranda rights and given free lawyers. And, despite overwhelming public disapproval, Barack Obama has pushed forward with a health care plan that would re-structure one-sixth of the American economy.

I don't know about you, but the other day I was at the courthouse doing some business, and I stepped into the court clerk's office and changed my voter affiliation from "Independent" to "Republican." I am under no illusion that the Republican party is perfect, but at least they're starting to awaken to the fact that we cannot sustain massive levels of debt; we cannot afford to hand out billions of dollars in corporate subsidies; we have to somehow trim our massive entitlement programs; we can no longer be the world's policeman and dole out billions in aid to countries whose citizens seek to harm us.

Literally millions of Americans have had enough. They're organizing, they're studying the Constitution and the Federalist Papers, they're reading history and case law, they're showing up at rallies and meetings, and a slew of conservative candidates are throwing their hats into the ring. Is there a revolution brewing? Yes, in the sense that there is a keen awareness that our priorities and sensibilities must be radically re-structured. Will it be a violent revolution? No. It will be done through the interpretation of the original document that has guided us for 220 years - the Constitution. Just as the pendulum swung to embrace political correctness and liberalism, there will be a backlash, a complete repudiation of a hundred years of nonsense. A hundred years from now, history will perceive the year 2010 as the time when America got back on the right track. And for that, we can thank Barack Hussein Obama.

That is a huge pile of WISHFUL THINKING by Mr. Hubble.

While this November will determine if there is "complete repudiation" of the OBAMA AGENDA, let's not assume that these folks will not just 'go away' or give up.

Today, 48% of Americans don't pay taxes, and they would like to keep it that way.

The government employee rolls have swelled, and will continue to do so. These folks are also not interested in any party other than the Democrat Party.

Unions, under this administration, have been given a BIG SEAT at the table. These folks are also not going to just roll-over.

I also expect Obama to veer to the center come election time. He's no dummy!

I can see some gains in Congress and Senate come November, but the Republican party will be stuck in neutral until a leader stands-out and speaks with clear reason to the American public. That person is not here today.

Joaquin, I don't disagree overall, however, I think that Americans on whole will eventually right this country on its proper course.

If I am wrong, then we are doomed to follow the path of the former USSR.

I think we need to keep up the pressure.
In Germany there are very strict rules about how much a politician can get away with as no to repeat history.
One of the problems we are having is that not enough people have felt the real affects of Obama's policies yet and the sad part is they are manipulating the facts and the outcomes till after the elections.

Joaquin said...

"I think that Americans on whole will eventually right this country on its proper course."

Which Americans are you speaking of?

Do the math.
Then again, if you throw-in a possible amnesty of 12 to 15 million illegals, doing the math is pointless.

Boy are you gonna be depressed when he is re-elected in 2012!

T. Paine said...

Splash, the ONLY way that Obama gets re-elected is if there is a third party running for the presidency (such as was the case with Ross Perot)that ends up splitting the conservative vote.

Otherwise, your president is done and will go down in history ranked somewhere below even Carter, sir.

Dave Splash said...

Who's supposed to beat him? Sarah Palin? That's who the right supports, and she is the only one who can draw a crowd. And what's to keep her from quitting when those big, meanie Democrats challenge her homespun "wisdom."?

I'm sorry, but it is simply not possible for her to beat Obama. It would be a blowout equal to 1972 or 1984. I really hope you guys pick her.

T. Paine said...

Palin won't run, I am fairly certain. If she does though, she is imminently more qualified and has already achieved more as governor than Obama has or will achieve in his remaining 2 1/2 years in office.

actually it was the best thing to ever happen to him:
