President Obama and the progressive majority in congress assumed political power on the premise that they had a better way to govern America. They were going to fix the out-of-control deficit spending that accelerated during the presidency of George W. Bush. They were going to transform the last remaining super power of the United States into a global citizen where our honor would be restored in the eyes of the world. They were going to correct the excesses of capitalism and punish those greedy CEO's and corporations that pilfered from the poor and middle class. They were going to ensure that everybody had health care and that even our very planet would be healed through their governance. They were going to transform this nation that they all loved.
The results of this transformative governance has proven to be inarguably disastrous to America and the world accordingly.
From the very beginning, Barack Obama has deceived Americans. He obviously held no love for his country. His fundamental being fought to roll back and transform all of the things that helped form America into the most prosperous and freest nation the world has ever known. As a community organizer and state senator from Illinois, Obama saw our country not as this shining city on a hill, but rather as a corrupt and unfair imperialistic nation. Further, a person does not aspire to fundamentally transform something he supposedly loves.
Even Michelle Obama in a moment of disastrous candor admitted when it looked inevitable that her husband would likely be our next president stated how, "For the first time in my adult lifetime, I am really proud of my country." Prior to the predestined elevation to Obama's presidency, neither Barack nor Michelle Obama had faith in the greatness of this nation, it would seem.
Further, President Obama is awash in his own narcissism and borders on a messianic complex. This can be seen as early as during his campaign, to his inaugural speech, to nearly every public interview done since. He believes that he was elected to transform an America conceived in liberty that protected life, respected private property, and allowed for people to prosper by the fruits of their own labors in our capitalistic society. President Obama believes that he was elected to transform that greatness and to rather punish the rich, uplift the poor and exploited, to enact a more equitable socialistic economy, and to redistribute wealth, all for the common good. Why in the very height of his messianic narcissism, he proclaimed after winning the Democratic nomination, "This was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal."
This political messiah is a true believer in his agenda and unlike Bill Clinton who moderated his politics and developed a "third way" after the mid-term beating he received by the Republicans, President Obama will almost assuredly not discard his plans regardless of the outcome of the up-coming midterm elections. His agenda will take precedence in his presidency regardless of the desired wishes of the people.
He will absolutely continue to foist his Marxist policies on America, even despite the fact that most Americans strongly reject his plans now that they are aware of what he really meant by "hope and change". Tellingly, Obama even admitted that he doesn't care what the people think when he stated that he would rather be a successful, great one-term president than a mediocre two-term president.
Regardless, the progressives in congress and President Obama are tone deaf. They do not see that a vast majority of Americans reject what they are doing and have done to our nation, now that they can see clearly what this "change" was, for which they voted. Obama and his progressive cohorts basically despise America as it was. They think it is their job to transform it into a socialist utopia and the citizens of America be damned.
Indeed, Dr. Alan Keyes wrote, "They are the natural fruit of lifelong hostility toward the ideas and moral principles that have forged the historic success whereby the very existence of the United States refuted the Marxist delusion. More and more people are looking at the Obama faction, its tools and fellow travelers and what they see is haunted by the yet unspoken thought 'We have met the enemy, and it is them.' "
Doctor Keyes is absolutely correct. President Obama and the progressives in congress are indeed the enemy to America. It is vitally imperative that conservatives and libertarians regain control of the House of Representatives and the Senate in little less than a month. Only then will we be able to apply the brakes on this runaway Marxist agenda.
The Republicans MUST govern on principle and actually regain the title of Republicans which they have long since lost. Only this way will we be able to restore America and begin to repair the unravelling of the greatest nation in the history of humankind that President Obama had hoped to transform into something alien and unrecognizable.
This election is absolutely critical to the survival of our country as we have known it. Should the progressives maintain control, Obama will use this as justification of his anti-capitalist, anti-American changes and continue unabated on the path to destroying America. This false prophet of Marxism must be put into his proper place and made to realize that this is NOT the America that We The People wanted and certainly not what we thought we were voting for with his election.
"We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek," said Obama. He is correct now; we are the ones that must reclaim our country. We can wait no longer.
