This is the first blog I’ve written in two months. While there are plenty of things to write about in the world of politics, I must admit, I’ve been at a loss. I, along with so many of you, worked so hard in the last election, trying to inform the public as to who this president really is. I made my case, time and time again, trying to open people’s eyes to the danger of the president’s agenda and ideology. But to no avail. Obama won re-election by 3 million votes. What else is there to say?
I feel like Hillary in the Benghazi hearing….what difference, at this point, does it make?
Well, unlike Hillary, I know it makes a big difference. Obama is destroying this country. With each appointment, executive order, or negative straw man speech, he is destroying the freedoms so many have fought and died to protect. We can sit around and feel sorry for ourselves, while the country falls apart around us, or we can continue to fight. I’ve heard Republicans say that the president won the election, so we must support him. NO, that is not true. Do you think any Democrat said “Bush won, so we need to support him?” Of course not. That would be silly. In fact, they fought harder, and that’s what we should be doing.
During Obama’s first term, he essentially got a pass for the economy, as all of the blame was put on Bush. As the national debt was climbing by trillions, Obama said he had to spend money to get the economy back on track. He fixed nothing. As Obama campaigned for a second term, he still got a pass, because “the economic crisis was even worse than first thought”, and while the recovery has been slow, he insisted we were on the right track. Now, Obama seems to have amnesia, because he says we don’t even have a spending problem. He failed to even address the economy in his 2nd inaugural speech. Meanwhile, the biggest concern on the minds of most Americans is the economy and jobs. Where is the president on this? His jobs council hasn’t met in a year. He refuses to negotiate on the debt ceiling, saying he won’t even discuss spending cuts. We’re heading into financial oblivion, and he won’t even acknowledge there is a problem.
Obama has become more brazen in his tactics. He refuses to work with Congress, on either side of the aisle, and is more than happy to go-it-alone. He even made the comment that if Congress couldn’t come to an agreement on the debt ceiling, they could hand the power over to him, and he’d get the job done. Absolutely appalling! Yet, not a word from the mainstream media or Republicans in Congress. Does no one even care about his quest for a complete power grab?
We’ve all watched in horror as Democrats scramble for more gun control. Despite the proven facts that gun control does NOT work, they continue to draft legislation to restrict lawful gun owners while doing nothing to actually address the problem of gun violence, since murderers clearly don’t follow laws. What we ended up with is 23 new executive orders, which will do nothing to prevent another mass shooting, and additional legislation is in the works. Senator Feinstein makes NO bones about that fact that if she could, she would take every single firearm off the streets, but simply doesn’t have the votes to do it.
Obama’s goals are clear: bigger government and less individual freedom. He wants to use legislation to enhance gay rights and give amnesty to illegals, create restrictions on energy use (via Agenda 21 and the EPA) and massively expand the entitlement society. He rejects the notion that Americans have become a society of takers, while food stamp rolls have exploded under his watch. He rejects the notion that we have a spending problem, while the debt is nearing $17 TRILLION. Folks….he’s not actually that stupid. This is the plan. Once we have gone off the real fiscal cliff, he will bring in big government to “fix” everything. It’s his way of “fundamentally transforming America”. You have to destroy something before you can rebuild it.
I’ll be the first to admit it….I’ve been discouraged. I feel like my labor was in vain. But I’m back! This is no time to give up. Our love of country and our will to fight DO make a difference….the difference between liberty and tyranny.
