America After Obama

Barack Obama has gone from the “one we've been waiting for" to the one we can’t wait to kick out.

Barack Obama has gone from the “one we've been waiting for" to the one we can’t wait to kick out. No one ever thought one man could bring the nation to its knees, but here he is living in the White House. And on our knees we have been praying for the day that he leaves.

The audacity of a president hell-bent on destroying our great nation has truly been a stunning spectacle to observe. No lie is too ridiculous to tell about anyone who opposes him. With a compliant media behind him, the smears this Demagogue-in-Chief promises to unleash on his opponent this fall could divide the county so badly that it becomes ungovernable.

The societal tensions Obama promised to ease have worsened by his politics of envy. The racial healing he promised has been made worse. Despite overwhelming opposition, he forced a health plan on the people that few want. He has trampled on the Constitution, and infringed on powers granted to Congress. He has bailed out auto companies, investment bankers and insurance companies. He has given Constitutional rights to terrorists.

Obama’s greatest transgression, however, has been the explosion of government spending to the point where we are enslaved to a mountain of debt that can never be repaid. He has given us $1.6-trillion deficits, and will have added more than $6 trillion to the debt by the end of his term. He has risen the percentage of GDP consumed by government to 25 percent. And all his spending has stimulated nothing.

If you believe what the government reports, total unemployment is currently 15.2 percent as measured by U-6. During Obama’s tenure, true unemployment has been running greater than 20 percent and is near Depression Era levels. In sum, Obama’s presidency has hastened a financial disaster upon the nation.

Obama calls his policies “transformation.” In an earlier age, they would have been considered something akin to treason. Our enemies could not have planted someone to have caused more damage. And now, with financial collapse on the horizon, our very way of life is threatened.

Altogether, Barack Obama will probably go down in history as the worst president of all time. Until now, historians have long given that dubious distinction to James Buchanan, who left office to Abraham Lincoln as the nation was falling apart and headed toward civil war. It is no exaggeration to say the 2012 election is every bit as important as was the 1860 election. James Buchanan at least had good intentions. The same cannot be said for Barack Obama. His intent is not to build up, but only to tear the nation down, and then to cover his tracks. There is no other way to explain his actions.

Millions of Americans, however, have finally had enough. A counterrevolution is rising to a level rarely seen in our history. There hasn’t been this intensity of grassroots activity since the abolitionist movement of the 1850s. People are making themselves visible in the community. They are organizing rallies and call-in campaigns. They are studying the Constitution, and will not be silenced by charges of racism or any other falsehood uttered by the Left.

And when the new president is sworn in, collective relief will be felt across the land. But the long and hard road to recovery will have only begun. Whether America avoids financial collapse will be uncertain for years to come.

For a government that borrows 36 cents of every dollar it spends, the math is simple. We will need real cuts to the federal budget near 36 percent to survive. Factor in modest economic growth and perhaps the cuts could be 30 percent. But failure to make real cuts on this scale risks runaway inflation and disaster. Any way you look at it, people’s pain will be deep, and it will be real.

With Obama gone and the threat of reprisals removed, people will begin to talk, and eventually the truth about Obama’s mysterious past will come out. What was hidden, scrubbed, and not vetted in 2008 -- including his grades, his college records, his passport, his personal associations, and yes, even his birth -- will all be exposed. It is all just a matter of time. The duplicity and deceit to be uncovered will shock even his most ardent supporters.

Who knows? A pariah status could very well attach itself to Obama on a level reserved for few individuals in American history. Obama could be regarded as the Benedict Arnold of our time. The masses may come to shun him, and rightly so. If there is poetic justice in this world, this will be his legacy.

November is not just another election; it is a seminal moment in American history. If Obama is reelected, expect ObamaCare to stay, the debt to crush us, our defenses to be laid bare, Iran to get the bomb, and at least two liberals to be named to the Supreme Court. If Obama is reelected, America as we know it will be gone forever. Collapse will be certain.

For true hope and true change, perhaps we should try returning to a limited Constitutional government. We all need to be involved. Whether or not we can turn around the disaster Barack Obama has foisted upon us hinges first on removing him from office. Now is the time to go about the work of doing just that. This is the year, folks. Buckle up. It’s going to be a rough ride.

I love propaganda, this rhetoric would be best served at one of your "TEA PARTY" verbal lynchings, I mean gatherings.
Scottrey January 27, 2012 at 04:13 PM
Great article, unfortunately like most liberals Desiree is baffled by facts and instead of trying to counter she has responded with an unfounded racial assertion on the Tea Party. While I agree that things are definitely not better and in fact worse under Obama, I unfortunately do not see a viable candidate from the GOP with the right ideas or a belief that they will follow through with them. Ron Paul has the best economical and smaller government ideas but his foreign policy scares the heck out of me; he borders on isolationism.

Excellent article!
Desiree Cunningham January 30, 2012 at 06:00 PM
Scottrey...... I like that you call me liberal! I have never associated myself in that manner but I thank you non the less! I will say that being confused about political facts and situations concerning our government is positively improbable, I am a Political Science/ Criminal Justice Major with two years of Law under my belt AND run my own business! One thing I do know is Politics and as far as racist undertones of a "Party" that states they want "Their Country" back...... Back from WHO? If History serves me correctly, the sole premise of the Boston Tea Party was not only implemented by British Colonist, but the tax was placed on the tea by the British Parliament....... Again I ask BACK FROM WHOM? This country belongs to every citizen who has fought and died for it, helped work to build it, paid taxes to drive on it's roads, and got railroaded by a Republican Party that sent it to war and allowed corruption in companies that allowed them kickbacks, and banks, and WARS that crippled America's economic structure! You read what I wrote but the Article that erupted an assertion of racial undertones, was spawned by Mr. Lukens who insinuated that the American Government and Citizens were not smarter than ONE mans "forged documents and fraudulent background checks". Are we really this far back in our thinking? Really???? Can we just stick to the facts??? Who is best suited to Run this country effectively without sending it back into simultaneous wars and financial ruin!

Having a political science major makes you more probable to be confused by anything political as you have been inundated by liberal bias and narrow mindedness of our education system. Calling Tea Party lynch mobs? If you cannot see the racial overtones in that comment then you are quite oblivious to more than I thought. I am not a member of a Tea Party nor do I adhere to all of their principles. I do take offense to the idea that a group like the Tea Party is lumped into the moniker of racists simply because they do not like the presidents policies. I cannot speak for the Tea Party as I am not one, but I believe that they as many conservatives like myself want the country to go back to what our founding fathers originally started, a smaller more constitutional style government. As far as Mr Lukens article, one no one other a handful of democratic party officials have seen the original BC, and the one that was finally posted last year was deemed a newly made one. I am not saying obama is not a citizen or not as it really doesn’t matter anymore. Lastly, to blame the GOP for the wars and corruption in the private sector is blatantly naive. Both parties had to vote on the wars and the mortgage failure falls mostly on the Dems as it was Carter and Clinton who started and further wrecked the system. Personally I do not like either party as they are all career politicians and are only concerned about being reelected rather than what is good for the country.

Bush came as close to destroying this country as anybody can, starting with his failure to protect us from a terrorist attack to bringing down the economy - which was healthy when he took it over. Obama has taken 3 years to turn around 8 years of Bush antics - in 5 more years, we will have a strong thriving country again (with no help from the repubs). However, if a Republican gets in, we can expect more of Bush and his horrible policies. Anybody who honestly looks at the ECONOMY and policies of caring humanity (helping the poor, making sure everyone gets medical care, freedom to marry the person you love etc) will redoubtably be a Democrat. Liberal isn't a dirty word - it means moving into the future, while conservatives are trying to conserve the good o'l days (that really weren't so good).
Linda Falkner February 03, 2012 at 05:11 AM
Oh yes, I forgot to mention - Republicans start wars, and Democrats end them.
Scottrey February 03, 2012 at 11:08 AM
Linda , you fail to add anything of substance to this post. Just partisan rhetoric. First off the economy that thrived so well during Clinton started to do so months before he took office. They were a result of Reagen's tax cuts. The economy started to go sour in 2000 after the dot com fallout, months before Bush took office. I am not going to say the GOP has been perfect but they do not deserve all the blame as you say, and obama has done nothing to help the economy. Also, both side of the aisle start wars, it is the Dems who deund them and leave our boys to die. It was a dem that got us into Nam, and a GOP that got us out but only after the Dems cut spending.

I've seen similar ones in the past - jobs and health of economy fall under repub and then rebound under democratic presidents. It's been an ongoing pattern. Republican's explanation: there is a 4-8 year delay so repubs get the blame for bad democratic policies. ROTFL
Scottrey February 05, 2012 at 08:04 PM
You're funny. You use Obama's website as a non biased source. That is the best laugh I have ever had. Seriously, I was taught that it takes years from a liberal economics professor in college. thanks anyways.

Disagreements about policy aside, the inflamed rhetoric in this post is precisely the reason our politics have become so toxic as of late. You can disagree strongly with the president's agenda, but declaring him a traitor, questioning his legitimacy, and using apocalyptic imagery to drive these points home is a tad extreme at best, and dangerously provocative at worst. I keep a broad rule of thumb that the intentions of the majority of politicians are fundamentally good. I think Republicans are misguided in their belief that drastically cutting public spending in the midst of an economic recovery will make things better, but hey, they sincerely believe they're right. So let’s take a step back and try to find out what Obama's motives are. Like the majority of economists, our president is a Keynesian. Keynes believed that slashing spending during recessions was a bad idea. Government instead needed to spend like hell to shock the economy back to life again. This worked to end the Great Depression, by the way. This is the ground Obama stands on. It’s why serious people say the Stimulus Act prevented a second depression. You may not agree with that, but it’s pretty standard theory -- a far cry from the socialist cabal of the darkest imaginings. So let’s tone it down a bit, shall we? Obama’s not a Kenyan socialist. The GOP won’t put the poor into forced labor camps. We’re all seeking answers in a complicated world, and mindless vitriol isn’t helping.
Scottrey February 14, 2012 at 05:34 PM
Eric, to say that Keynesian economics got us out of the Great Depression is a bit over reaching and exaggerated. The government was spending and GDP was doing better but it wasn't until the onset of World War II that the GDP really took off. Even before the US entered the war at the end of 41 we were suppling the Allies and ramping up for the possibility that the war would come to us. Obama's spending has taken what Bush started and gone to the point of spending without real thought of the benefit. Yes Obama has created jobs; jobs that pay ~$30k at a cost of over $200k each. Also, tax cuts work, JFK knew that and did that. You must give the corporations and those who run the means and incentive to expand and build the workforce, not find new ways to tax and penalize them. Obama doesn't believe in Trickle Down Economics but that is exactly what started getting us out of the Great Depression. Also you're right about the rhetoric because calling Obama the worst president ever is not fair to Jimmy Carter.
Eric February 14, 2012 at 06:12 PM
Point taken. I'd argue that the New Deal got people out of the depths of despair and feeling hopeful again -- possibly the most important thing when you're talking about economic collapse -- but you're right, WWII drove the recovery home. Now you could argue that the War was the ultimate stimulus act and perfectly in line with Keynesian theory, but I'm hardly advocating global war as a solution to our economic woes. And I also agree that tax cuts make a great stimulus. Move the Bush tax cuts forward to 2008 when everything was going to hell, couple them with stimulus spending to get capital moving again, and they would make good economic sense. The problem is that they were passed during the height of the economic boom -- a time when we should have been paying down the debt, not passing gargantuan tax cuts. But all that aside, I think focusing on the deficit over the past year has been a giant waste of time. Deficits will continue until we see solid economic growth again, and that's just the way it is.
