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.
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 . Here's why.
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
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.
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.
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 "FANTASTIC" 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.
